I have extremely dry skin and am looking for a super hydrating moisturizer. I don't really care about price but really really don't like fragrance in my facial cream.

Any suggestions?

Dr Patricia Wexler MD's line of fragrance-free moisturizer is one of the best of the best. You can find it through Bath & Body Works and Victoria's Secret. You can find hundreds of reviews online about her and her products online.

Cetaphil Cetaphil Cetaphil!!!!

My dermatologist told me about it and I've been using it for ten years, religiously. I think it's simply the best one on the market and it lasts forever. I went to a high end salon recently for a facial and the lady asked me what I was using. When I told her Cetaphil, she said 'good for you! I have no advice to offer...that stuff is the best. Of course, I'm not supposed to say that since we dont sell it here.' It costs about 10.00 for a huge pot.

Fragrance free Olay Total Effects, though that may not be moisturizing enough. Also, Cera Ve.

Buy CeraVe Moisturizing Cream Online at drugstore.com

I like Cetaphil as well but it's actually not moisturizing enough if you can believe it, and I use the cream.

If Cetaphil isnt enough, I recommend Extra Emoilient Night Cream from Mary Kay. It's a classic product of theirs that is really more of an ointment than a cream. It's pink and smells a bit like honey. My mom, who has used everything from Vaseline to cooking oil, is a big fan. However, if the scent is still too much for you, I'll bet that Aquafor ointment is about the same consistency and has no frangrance at all.

I have extremely dry skin but if I use Cold Cream and Cetaphil, it's just perfect. Ahhhh.

How about Avène Cold Cream? A friend who has dry skin uses it (I have combination skin and I use Avène too: I'm very happy with it) and reports excellent results.

Fragrance-free Cetaphil and Aveeno have always been recommended by my dermatologists. I prefer Aveeno because it's a bit thicker.

Are people here aware of the issue around parabens? Parabens are an ingredient in most face and body creams, and they're carcinogenic. If you read the product labels, parabens will be listed toward the bottom. You can buy paraben-free lotion at Whole Foods and health food stores. 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.

I'd recommend fortifying your moisturizer with maybe argan oil or avocado oil.
