Good Moisturizer

Recommended Posts

i know this question has probably been asked a million times but I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion of a good face moisturizer that is gluten free, sulfate free, and paraben free and you could purchase it in a drug store or Target type store? Thanks for any input!

I know this might sound weird...but I just use extra virgin coconut oil. It's naturally gluten, paraben, and sulfate free, it smells great, and a little bit goes a long way. One jar will last you for years. It doesn't go bad. I just keep it in my room and use it when needed. You just dab a finger in it and scoop some up..it's great for your face, hair, and dry hands. I swear it's helped with acne as well. 

 

Obviously, if you use coconut oil for baking keep a separate jar in your kitchen for that! Good brands are Dr. Bronner's, Spectrum, etc. I found Dr. Bronner's on sale for $6.99 once. Usually coconut oil is about $10.00 a jar, but again - it will last for ages, smells great, and it is completely healthy. Your skin will absorb it pretty well.

 

As for where to purchase - I'm not sure about Target, but Stop & Shop, ShopRite, and probably Walmart will carry a brand of coconut oil. I've only seen Dr. Bronner's at a specialty health market, but you could also order it online.

I second the use of coconut oil.  It is a single ingredient product, and if you don't like the light smell of coconut, get refined coconut oil.  It goes on the skin very lightly and I use it for my facial eczema- every other moisturizer gives me acne which I can't treat in an eczema spot.

I use a lot of Garnier products. They will clearly label gluten ingredients and much of their line is gluten free.

I also use coconut oil. I use it on my little dog often. She loves it and comes running when I ask if she wants to be oiled. It leaves her coat nice and soft.

I use nearly the entire Acure Organics line, and I love it! I find it at health food stores like Fruitful Yield. It's gluten free, paraben free, sulfate free, biodegradable. I think you can get it on Amazon too

Thank you so much - I looked at it on-line and it looks like it would be a good line.  Is there a particular product from the line that you think it is a must try?

I've been using coconut cooking oil for the past 6 months and have seen a huge difference in my skin, skin tone, texture and lack of breakouts. I pour it into a spray bottle and add a few drops of both lavender and Frankincense essential oils (I use only young living oils). It's not overly oily & absorbs fast. It's the only thing I use  now & love the results!
