r for sensitive skin and line correction
I am looking to change my current products but I am allergic to almost everything including first aid beauty and philosophy's hope in a jar. I have been using clinique which does not bother the eye area but does not seem moisturizing enough for my face which seems drier lately. I have thought about stri-vectin but I am concerned I will be allergic to the fragrance. Any suggestions for dry skin and deepening expression lines?

My aunt has super sensitive skin with lots of allergies like you have. She swears by Dr. Dennis Gross "Hydra-Pure Oil-Free Moisture with Chelating Complex" (Sephora Product Page) This is a lightweight, oil free, fast absorbing moisturizer that hydrates the skin while providing antiaging and acne fighting properties. It includes the latest in scientific research and advanced technology, including age-fighting antioxidants. Plus, it's ideal for all skin types, including oily, combination, and acne-prone skin, it is dermatologist-approved, contains no fragrance or oil ingredients, no parabens, and is cruelty-free.
I hope this helps you!
Since it sounds like your skin is easily irritated, I'd try skincare products from Caudalie which is a wonderful, all natural brand.
Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminée Anti Wrinkle Cream is a moisturizing cream with anti-aging benefits that's non-comedogenic so it won't cause breakouts. Ideal for skin that is beginning to age, this formula is full of antioxidants and vitamins, which revive tired skin and counter damage caused by environmental aggressors, pollution and stress. It offers a multitude of natural ingredients to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, boost elasticity and give you a smooth finish that lasts throughout the day. This cream is for AM and PM use both so you don't need a separate product for day/night use. You can read more about it here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P60
Caudalie Pulpe Vitaminée Anti Wrinkle Fluid does the same job as the Caudalie Cream I listed above does, except that it is lighter weight. Depending on your skin type, some people like to use the Fluid in the summertime and switch to the Cream in the wintertime. It's really just a matter of preference. The Fluid is also non-comedogenic so it will not clog your pores or cause breakouts either. And, just like the cream above, this is for both AM and PM use.

Hope this helps!
Have a great day!
i hate to say it cause they don't sell it at sephora - but your very best bet is mario badescu. you get bang for your buck and the best products for ALL skin concerns. i get everything from sephora but when it comes to my skincare, mario badescu is the one line i can always count on.
Dr. Brandt Skincare anti-irritant soothing moisturizer might work for you. It's made for people who are allergic to other creams and such, and there's also a cleanser of it if you want to give it a try: Dr. Brandt Skincare anti-irritant comforting cleanser
Hope this helped!!
