Oh yeah the scrub especially St Ives can irritate your skin especially when it is sensitive to begin with.
I have Mario Badescu colllagen moisturizer that I love. I don't get the red but I do get the flaky and dry skin. If you want to exfoliate I would recommend Prep scrub from Dermalogica it's very delicate to facial skin because they use corn husks that aren't as abrasive.
I would be tempted to say olive oil, i started to get ezema on my hands from wearing gloves and washing constantly and a guy told me to put the oil. I love that man...
