How do you test a skin care product if you have sensitive skin?

ANSWER

For several days, apply a small amount behind an ear and leave it on overnight.

If your skin doesn't get irritated, do the same thing on the skin alongside an eye.

If you still don't see irritation, it should be safe for you to put it anywhere on your face.
