  • Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Mattifying Concentrate Serum with Retinol

    This is an outstanding antioxidant serum chock full of antioxidants. It is light, absorbs quickly, is fragrance and color free and great for extremely sensitive skin ( suitable even around the eyes). It also does not cause breakouts. It rivals and probably surpasses the high end brands for a fraction of the cost. It has softened a couple of deep lines on my face a bit and all of Paula's product claims are refreshingly honest (and not outrageous marketing ploys using trendy buzz words that other companies deploy) Buy it! It is wonderful for your skin and works well and feels great even under makeup! This is my number one choice for an antioxidant (aka anti-anging) serum.

  • Paula's Choice Soft Cream Concealer

    Paula's Choice Soft Cream Concealer

    Stays on all day and excellent at hiding dark circles

    This concealer stays on all day until you remove it. It really hides dark circles very well. I actually look like I have slept! I found it a little bit drying for the eye area but otherwise it did not irritate my sensitive skin or settle into wrinkles. A little goes a long way.

  • Paula's Choice Slip Into Silk Body Lotion

    This is the best all over body moisturizer, especially in the winter. It is soothing, rich and creamy, absorbs, quickly, is full of excellent antioxidants and moisturizers, does not cause acne, and it does not irritate even the most sensitive skin. It is fragrance free, but the beneficial ingredients give it a nutty essence that is very light. It is my favorite. I love that this is fragrance free as I do not like my lotion to interfere with a fragrance that I spent a lot of money on. Most other good lotions are so strongly scented.

  • Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Mattifying Concentrate Serum with Retinol

    This is really an outstanding fragrance free serum chock full of antioxidants, especially a high quality Vitamin C which helps your skin defend itself against harmful UV light. It is in an airtight stable package. It does not irritate my allergy prone, highly sensitive skin, even in the eye area. It lightly hydrates without being oily. Its packaging keeps it stable and potent and best of all, it is really inexpensive when compared to similar (and mostly inferior) serums. A little goes a long way--only a few drops are needed on your face. It absorbs quickly and is a great makeup primer. It smooths the skin a bit and sooths redness. This is a must have for anyone.

  • Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover
    10.0

    Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover

    Perfect-great for sensitive, allergy prone skin

    This makeup remover gently, but effectively removes all makeup, including waterproof. Just dab on with a cotton ball and wipe off. It does not contain anything extraneous or irritating, like fragrance or color--just what is necessary. It is a little pricey compared to drugstore brands, but they do not test on animals which is a huge plus. What I especially like about this is that it does not leave an oily film so it is excellent on a Q-tip for makeup oopses. It does not cause acne in my oily areas or bother my dry, sensitive eye area. I have really allergy prone reactive skin and have no problem with this! I have found that Paula's Choice cannot be beaten for sensitive skincare, not even Clinique come close.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    I am not a fan of BB's, but this one is worth taking a look at. It is fragrance free. The light-med. color was a good match for me-easy to blend. It looked natural and dewy. It had some dimension and evened out my skin tone. It did not irritate my reactive skin or cause acne, but it felt a bit heavy and waxy. It is more coverage than a tinted moisturizer and the price is right.

  • Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Fragrance Free Body Lotion

    This is a great lotion, especially for winter. It is hydrating, fast absorbing, and not greasy at all. It is fragrance free, which is great because fragrance usually irritates my sensitive skin or bothers my allergies, plus the boys in the house won't mind using it, too. It is very inexpensive so you will not be stingy and happily apply it liberally and often. I will put my sample in my purse, one in my desks, and by all of the sinks at my house. It does have a naturally slight medicinal smell, but it is not too noticeable and disappears quickly.

  • Dove GoSleeveless Deodorant
    8.0

    Dove GoSleeveless Deodorant

    New evertday favorite

    My favorite part about this deodorant is the very light, delicate fragrance. It has the minimal, clean smell of bar soap. It is moisturizing, protects me from odor and perspiration during normal activities. I did not irritate my skin personally--I am usually very sensitive, but everyone reacts differently and do different ingredients. It did ball up a bit, but is my new everyday favorite.

  • Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base SPF 15

    This is great as a primer to smooth, calm, and even out red skin tone. I used it under foundation that was too sheer and did not even out my skin. I love the fact it has spf15. It is not fragranced and excellent on sensitive skin. I love the tube packaging to keep the product sanitary and potent. I did not give it ten stars because I find Clinique's foundations (Even Better) are excellent and address my redness so I do not really need this.
