But, I am a skin care and makeup junkie, so it wasn't long before I started looking for new skin care. I used to love Origins, but the fragrance irritates my skin. So sad! I even tried Cetaphil, but the sodium laurel sulfate hates me. Then, I tried Paula's Choice. So far, I'm really liking it. The cleanser is so gentle, but removes most makeup (I need extra help with mascara), and the BHA lotion evens out my skin without irritating. Best of all, the SPF moisturizer doesn't sting when I put it on! So, if you're like me and closer to 40 than you are to 30, with dry skin that still occasionally breaks out, you may want to check out Paula's Choice. She's the same woman who wrote 'Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me.' I was iffy because she reviews her own stuff (and of course says it's good!) but I'm really pleased.
FYI -- I'm not affiliated with Paula's Choice and I wasn't asked to review their products. I simply went to them as someone who needed gentle products with no fragrance and no irritating ingredients.
