Brand Overview

This lightweight moisturizer contains a handful of beneficial ingredients for all skin types, but also contains fragrant orange and lavender oils, neither of which jibes with the claim that this moisturizer is soothing.

Despite the company’s claims that this moisturizer is somehow uniquely suited for those with sensitive skin, the fact is the fragrance in this moisturizer is not what sensitive skin needs. The ideal moisturizer for sensitive skin would have a more sophisticated, research-based formula; for example, a moisturizer loaded with skin-repairing ingredients such as glycerin and ceramides along with a range of antioxidants and soothing agents, all without fragrance. Yes, this has a light texture, but so do dozens of other moisturizers that will go farther for your skin, especially if it’s sensitive.

  • Although sold as a product specialized for those with sensitive skin, it is not!

Although it’s fine as an aromatherapy agent for inhalation or relaxation, it is a must to avoid in skin-care products (Sources: Psychiatry Research, February 2007, pages 89–96; and
