Help! I Need Moisturizer!
What do you use for moisturizer? For years I used Oil of Olay (Jason called it Oil of Old Ladies), but then I decided to completely give up products tested on animals. Easy, right? Wrong. I’ve tried out a few different ones, but I’ve had a hard time finding a non-greasy moisturizer that includes sunscreen.
The closest I’ve come is Nature’s Gate Daily SPF 15 Sunscreen Moisture Cream. That had an odd texture—a bit like sand was mixed into it—but it wasn’t greasy, it dried quickly, and didn’t make me sneeze. I used that for months, but the company discontinued it.
Then I saw Trader Joe’s Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion. It looks like Oil of Olay, so I gave it a try. Bad idea. The bottle is the only thing that’s similar. It stings my face and it tarnished my jewelry.
Jason uses Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I’ve tried that, and it says it’s not greasy, but it kind of is.
So I’m back to square one. Any suggestions? I’d also like it to be free of parabens and oxybenzone, but at this point, beggars can’t be choosers. I looked at the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database, but I can never find anything there. The products that they consider the best are ones I’ve never heard of, let alone seen in a store. Grr! Maybe I’m too picky, but I do have to put this on my face every single day….
