Have dry, sensitive skin. Found 1 face cream that works but is Asian import sold at 1 expensive chain in us. Is it safe to buy it on site like ebay?

In brief: Investigate source
I generally recommend creams that list active and inactive ingredients, recognizing that even "natural" ingredients can still cause irritant or allergic reactions.
I would be weary about purchases from unknown sources.

In brief: Creams on eBay
If you want to buy a prescription strength product, it is safer to get it from your doctor. There are issues with counterfeit items on the internet.

In brief: Maybe
If it is sealed and carries apppropriate labeling, probably safe, but if cost high enough, both cosmetics and even perscription drugs have been counterfeited.

if purchasing from another source, try sample area of skin for reaction before using.
