I like L'Oreal's Revitalift stuff, but it def. has a fragrance, IMO.

Burt's Bees makes a night cream for sensitive skin that is fragrance-free?

Estee Lauder has one face moisturizer that's paraben-free, a day moisturizer than can be used for night, too. I don't know about the other brands.

Using face cream with parabens can lead to breast cancer over time.

The original post is pretty old. But this is what I use.

Just thought I'd give it a shout out. It does have a strong rose smell, but I love it. Rosa Mosqueta Rose Hip Moisturizing Cream by Aubrey Organics - AO-1100 - at The Vitamin Shoppe

Very silky and smoothing. I live in the desert with the typical humidity at less than 20% so I'm a good test subject for this product. Love that it is paraben-free too.

Bag Balm....

its made in Vermont, and, technically, isn't for human use, it states that on the can.

Its made to protect cow's udders in the fierce winters of New England. It comes in a 5 oz can, you can find it at Walgreens, about $5. Its a green can with pink and red. Or, you can get it much cheaper at feed and grain stores, but I'm content with the Walgreens price. If you buy a huge can, it gets contanimated with "stuff" over time as you use it.

Its a texture like vaseline, but works better. I have psoraisis, its the only think I've found that actually penetrates the psoraisis, rather than just sits on top and dries it out.

Before making your investment in your new day or night cream. May I suggest you contact a few companies customer service department and ask for samples if their product is not located locally or if their counter does not have any in stock.

Cosmetic companies in general, are very kind and generous because, they want you to become a loyal customer. Its also a great way to test a product for a few days before making a investment in a new product.
