I have very irritable combination skin. I'm also about to run out of my pregan moisturizer and will not be repurchasing it.

I'm eyeballing Under Age by Kiss My Face and Skin Drink from Lush. Recommendations? Horror stories? Other suggestions?

Thank you!

I swear by the Aveda moisturizer. I buy the large size for $65 and keep it in the fridge. It works out to almost half price over the small bottles and lasts a long time. (~9 months)

I have skin that freaks out over most products, but this one is very gentle and it feels lovely to use.

Imperialis by Lush. It's my number one Lush facial moisturizer.

Aveda's site isn't cooperating with my iPad. It is the basic moisturizer in the green glass bottle.

The cleansers etc feel like a chemical burn on my face, but the moisturizer is awesome. It is fairly thin and melts into my skin. It has a lovely, faint botanical smell, sort of herbal, but delicate and not at all annoying.

My mom and I have tried the tourmaline one, but we think it is too expensive and not worth it, especially compared to the regular one.

The bonus is you really only need a small bit for it to work, so even using it on my hands, I get a lot of uses out of a bottle.

I picked up this today.

http://www.neutrogena.com/product/neutr ... y=ourPicks

It was affordable and seemed to be vegan-acceptable. It also smells like sweet tarts, so that's nice. We'll see if it give me a rash (warning: avoid orange moisturizer from Trader Joe's).

I thought Neutrogena tested on animals?

But...but the box said no! It has a little bunny on it!

seriously though..I'm a baby vegan. Should I not trust packages that say "not tested"?

That's really strange that it has a bunny on it...

Amen. I also really like Celestial (which might actually be better for you, since you say you have irritable skin!)

Skin Drink works well on really dry skin, but to most people feels like an oily film on their face.

I like Lush Imperialis when I'm feeling wealthy and Earth Science Almond Aloe Moisturizer when I'm not. I also have combination skin, prone to acne and extreme dryness.

I've been using Celestial from Lush for the past few weeks and love it.

Ha, Celestial is my second favorite!

jojoba oil, a few drops, that's it. Seems hippie woo and takes a while to get over that but: Organic Jojoba oil from Desert Essence averages $7.50 per bottle and I buy less than three a year. Jojoba oil is the most chemically similar moisturizer available to our skins own moisture, which is why I tried it and my fussy skin is so calm and collected. I apply it at night and it takes about half an hour for it to soak in. I feel like I have trained my skin to not need much and it generally never does:)

I had combination skin with dry patches and occasional flakiness for the record.

I just bought the Earth Science one like this but with SPF 15--I hope I like it! I was worried because it isn't oil free--do they make you break out at all? I use the cleanser (clarifying?) and love it.

I love it too! (Even though going into Lush scares me, see Lush thread). I wish it was unscented.

I break out sometimes no matter what, but I really like this moisturizer. It's super light and absorbs right away, makes my skin feel good when it's so dry it hurts, and I don't feel like it's making me break out more than normal at all. I hate moisturizers with sunscreen in them and I think sunscreen makes me break out, but maybe I should try the spf one anyway...

I always feel like I need a moisturizer with SPF during the day, but finding an oil free, spf, fragrance free, vegan moisturizer is impossible. I bought a boscia one once that had most of that, but it smelled like lettuce.

I really should use a moisturizer with spf, considering that I am super pale, burn in 10 minutes of indirect sunlight, and my dad had skin cancer, but they're all so greasy! Let me know how that one is for you.

I use Trader Joe's moisturizer right now. It's SPF 15, fragrance free, vegan, non-greasy and I believe it may be oil-free. It's about $4-$5 for a bottle.

I love the TJ's moisturizer. Works great on my sensitive skin and absorbs quickly.

I like the boscia moisturizer when I'm feeling rich - it doesn't irritate my skin (I have eczema) and feels nice going on.

For normal times, I use the alba even advanced moisturizer - it's less than half the price of the boscia and is nearly as nice (you just have to work harder to rub it in - for some reason I'm really lazy about rubbing in lotion, so that makes a difference to me).

At night I use jojoba oil on my face, and recommend it, but I like spf for daytime.

There you go, now you all HAVE to take my moisturizer recommendations seriously.

(Except I'm definitely breaking out right now, but I also haven't washed my face in two days.)
