my favorite FRAGRANCE-FREE skincare products for dry, sensitive skin

Updated: Mar 18


If you read my blog about how I transformed my skin, you know I promised a comprehensive list of all the things I have loved over the years. Well, it's finally here. If you need a refresher, my skin is dry and sensitive. I have melasma and rosacea as well as fragrance sensitivities, so I try to avoid all added fragrances including fragrant essential oils. Everything on this list is safe to use for sensitive skin types, and is almost completely fragrance free. I will notate any products that contain fragrance or a fragrant oil, but there are only a few. As always, I am not a skincare professional. What has worked for me may not work for you. Please consult a dermatology professional if you are unsure about what to do for your skin.



Cleansers

  • Allies of Skin Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser - This beautifully formulated cleanser can be used as a first OR a second cleanse. It is truly one of the most unique formulas I've encountered and quickly shot to my favorites shortly after purchase. With a pH of 5.5, this foaming gel cleanser combines alpha hydroxy acids and amino acids into a powerful formula that works to restore a dull complexion with a brighter, smoother and more refreshed look. 

  • Laniege Cream Skin Milk Oil Cleanser - Another unique formula, this super gentle milky oil cleanser is my go-to morning cleanse or second cleanse. A low-pH 5.5 cleanser that gently rinses away leftover impurities leaving skin feeling soft and refreshed without being stripped of moisture. My skin never feels dry or tight after using this. It does usually get in my eyes a little bit and leave a weird haze that I have to wipe out, but it doesn't sting at all.

  • Deviant Skincare Cleansing Concentrate - This sumptuous balm is my favorite first cleanse. The balm-to-milk formula breaks down all makeup, spf, and impurities. Balancing Hemp and Camellia Seed soften congestion and environmental debris, and a proprietary blend of Sacha Inchi, Blueberry, and Borage soothe against oxidative-stress caused by extrinsic factors. I apply this to dry skin and use a warm wash cloth to rinse everything away before following with a second cleanse.

  • Deviant Skincare Enzymatic Cleansing Oil - When I'm not using the Deviant Cleansing Concentrate, I use this cleansing oil as my first cleanse. A true watery oil, this also gently removes makeup, spf, and anything else that might be lingering on your skin. Camellia and Perilla nourish and soften, whilst Papaya and Pineapple fruit enzymes lightly exfoliate and brighten the skin. As with all the others above, this is not drying or stripping.

  • Rx Sulfur Wash - No link for this one, as it is prescription. My dermatologist prescribed me a green tea sulfur wash for my acne and rosacea. It can be extremely drying, so I only use it once or twice a week, but it reduced the irritation and redness on my face DRAMATICALLY. It was truly a game changer for me. I find I don't need to use it as often now that my skin is under control, but I like to keep it around for upkeep.


Moisturizers

  • Avéne Skin Recovery Cream - ☼☾ - Starting with my holy grail, this bb is always at the top of my favorites list. In the summer I use it at night, in the winter I use it in the daytime. It moisturizes and soothes dry, red and environmentally damaged skin. It has a relatively short ingredient list, but everything in it is effective. The ingredients are: Water (Avène Thermal Spring Water), Mineral Oil, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Squalane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Clycohexasiloxane, Serine, Carbomer, Tetrasodium EDTA, and Triethanolamine. Often prescribed for the most sensitive skin types, this product was truly a game changer for me. I have lost count how many tubes of it I have gone through, I will continue to buy it again and again. It also layers well with makeup and SPF.

  • Avéne Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream - ☾ - This decadent balm-like cream is a cult favorite for just about any skin issue. Designed with eczema and rosacea in mind, this thick cream banishes dryness, alleviates sensitivity, and comforts the skin. I routinely reach for this in the winter and cold, dry months as a nighttime moisturizer or on days when my skin is having a bad day. It is also one of those does-it-all type creams that I'll put on cuticles, cracked hands, heels...really just about anything.

  • Allies of Skin Peptide™ Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment - ☼ - This beauty entered my life only a few months ago and it was one of those love-at-first-use products. I *am* slightly annoyed at the name - it's not a treatment. It's a moisturizer. That's just marketing, ignore it. All skincare is a treatment. Moving on! With a pH 5.0-5.4, this soft and lightweight formula is supercharged with multiple peptides, 7 brighteners, 9 antioxidants and a 16.5% Repair Complex to firm and repair damaged skin. She's pricey, but worth it. It layers well with makeup and SPF as well.

  • NeoCutis BIO CREAM Overnight Smoothing Cream - ☾ - Another expensive beauty, this rich, luxurious cream is a winter or nighttime favorite. The description from NeoCutis claims this "is ideally formulated for maturing, sensitive, stressed and irritated skin and features a naturally balanced blend of essential rejuvenating nutrients. Growth factors, antioxidants and matrix proteins, including collagen, revive skin while boosting firmness, elasticity and brightness." Human Growth Factors are a newer technology that are quickly becoming popular but aren't without controversy. They trigger your skin cells to grow new ones, so your skin will look youthful. The controversy comes in the fact it can trigger any type of cell to replicate, so if you had skin cancer and did not know it, growth factors could trigger those cancerous cells to replicate. I deeply loved using this cream and found it gave my stressed skin such relief. I used this after my first chemical peels and my skin bounced back immediately and hardly peeled at all.

  • Epionce Medical Barrier Cream - ☼ ☾ - This cream was the first cream I used to specifically address my dry skin. If you recall from my blog about transforming my skin, I used to believe I had oily skin simply because I had acne. An aesthetician let me know what my real skin type was and recommended this moisturizer to help heal my severely damaged skin. The brand's description is very on point, "Epionce Medical Barrier Cream is a fortifying solution to relieve and heal very dry, rough, damaged skin. A nourishing complex infused with rosehip, safflower and avocado helps restore vitality. Meadowfoam seed oil deeply hydrates and seals in moisture as date extract renews and replenishes. Suitable for skin with burns and other irritations." It is rich but doesn't feel heavy, and I used it day and night for months. This is the product that got my skin back on track to permanent healing.

  • Uruoi Moisture Milk* - ☼ - This lightweight cream surprised me. Its almost watery texture tricks you into thinking it can't possible be moisturizing enough for dry skin but IT IS. As soon as I start to rub this lotion into my skin it feels rich and sumptuous. But gentle, always gentle. Designed to boost your skin's water retention, moisture milk strengthens your skin barrier, protects the skin from humidity, and boosts your moisture level. I used an entire bottle this spring and summer and already miss it. The design of the vessel is also noteworthy, as it features and airless pump so you get every last drop of the product. It layers well with makeup and SPF as well.

  • Uruoi Emolient Cream - ☾ - The heavyweight cousin to the Moisture Milk, 5 types of plant extract and 5 types of plant-derived oils. This thick beauty helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up the skin and improving skin texture. It nourishes, protects, calms the look of skin redness with Grapevine extract, hyaluronic acid, Placenta extract, and sodium lactate among others.

  • Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream - ☾ - A winter must have for all skin types but especially those who are dry and sensitive, this rich cream is packed with yummy ingredients to soothe even the most irritated and weather torn skin. It is fragrance free but does contain Bergamot Fruit Oil, which could potentially be irritating to anyone super sensitive to fragrant oils (like I am). I use this at night layered with an oil. Because of the bergamot oil I haven't repurchased this in a while but it's still a favorite that got me through many winters. It's also another great multi-tasker that can be used on hands, feet, really anywhere you have dry patches.



Eye Creams/Treatments

  • NeoCutis LUMIÈRE® Illuminating Eye Cream - ☼ ☾ - The first and only eye cream I have fallen in love with and seen real results from, Lumiére has lightweight but potent. She layers under eye makeup well, too! From the brand, "An advanced complex of PSP growth factors boost cell's ability to repair and revitalize skin, increasing firmness and reducing wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates while matrix proteins restructure sagging skin. Antioxidants protect against environmental damage for a revitalized appearance." A coworker turned me on to this product after she swore it was the only thing to make a difference for her under-eye circles and I've never looked back. Another pricey option, but considering you need the tiniest amount for both eyes means one bottle lasts about a year for me.

  • ColoreScience Total Eye™ 3-in-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35 - ☼ - I layer this gem over my NeoCutis Lumiére cream every morning. The tinted SPF treatment protects the delicate eye area without ever irritating, while also providing sheer coverage. I wear the original shade "medium" but could probably get away with the light shade as well. The potent formula alleviates signs of aging, dark circles, puffiness, sun damage and dryness. 


Serums/Treatments/Oils

  • MaeLove The Hydrator B5 Gel - ☼ ☾ - I'm a big fan of plumping and hydrating hyaluronic acid. I use this early in my routine and find it helps all my other products absorb better. I've tried countless formulations but this mid-range (in terms of price at $28) has been my favorite. It lacks the tell-tale stickiness of most HA serums.

  • Great Barrier Relief - ☼ ☾ - This essential creamy treatment is a damn steal at $28. I'd pay upwards of $100 for it, easily. A dry skin savior, GBR calms signs of sensitivity and evens out skin without the greasy after feeling. A blend of conditioning oils fight irritation, discoloration and breakouts caused by a damaged skin barrier. Whenever I accidentally over exfoliate or the weather destroys my sensitive skin, I reach for GBR. It soothes like none other and will reverse anything I put my skin through.

  • MaeLove The GlowMaker - ☼ - A potent Vitamin C serum, this watery and lightweight formula is also great for beginners or people wanting to test out Vitamin C in their routine. With almost 8k 5-star reviews, this multitasking powerhouse costs only $28 and performs like a $300 medspa serum. With Vitamins C, E, Ferulic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid, this beauty will provide antioxidant protection, aid in fading dark spots and pigmentation, even skin tone, and, of course, hydrate. You can use this day or night, but I use my actives at night and Vit C in the day. Be sure to layer an SPF with this.

  • SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Serum - ☼ - I have been favoring this well-round multitasking serum as of late. The award-winning serum is quickly becoming the most recommended Vitamin C serum by aestheticians. It is designed as a daily antioxidant protection and improvement of the appearance of uneven tone and redness. The creamy but lightweight formula sinks in like a dream and layers well with SPF and makeup. The brand describes it as, "Vitamin C and E + 17 additional antioxidant ingredients designed to provide a new level of comprehensive and dynamic defense against free radicals." I adore using this product and while pricey, it could easily replace several steps in your routine.

  • Elysian Continuum Treatment Oil* - ☼ - This newbie is another powerhouse does-it-all formula. Created and developed by two makeup + skincare industry professionals, they grew tired of brands that were not inclusive and products that fell short of their claims. They hired a chemist and set out to develop their own line. The Continuum Treatment Oil is a yummy facial oil featuring a myriad of skin loving ingredients like Tomato Lycopene which is an antioxidant-rich carotenoid pigment that helps brighten hyperpigmentation and promotes a more even skin tone, Tetrahexyldecyl (THD) Ascorbate - a form of Vitamin C that delivers superior brightening and collagen-boosting benefits, Dermaxyl which is a wrinkle-smoothing peptide that encourages cellular renewal while boosting ceramide activity to rehydrate and strengthen skin's delicate barrier, Teprenone which activates dormant molecules inside skin cells called heat shock proteins which give cells resilience and protection against DNA damage, and their signature Superfood oil blend featuring raspberry, strawberry, goji berry, prickly pear (and more) to provide lightweight moisturizing benefits as well as strong antioxidant protection from free radical damage. While fragrance free this oil does has a strong natural scent from all the fruit oils. Frankly, it smells like candy. It took a bit of getting used to for me but the scent doesn't linger. Since the weather turned cooler I have been reaching for this almost daily. It delivers a beautiful glow and wears well under SPF and makeup.

  • Deviant Skincare Facial Oil - ☼ ☾ - I love this multi-faceted oil, and the way it's described on their site is perfect, "A nutrient-dense facial oil, mindfully curated to provide relief to stressed complexions. Enriched with essential fatty acids, antioxidants and phytosterols to support skin’s natural defense system, this rich yet absorbent oil fortifies the skin against environmental stressors, restoring balance and vitality for calm, supple and glowing skin." Another fragrance free and fragrant essential oil free blend that does still have its own unique aroma due to the ingredients. It almost smells like and herbal blend you'd cook with, but like the Continuum oil, the smell doesn't linger. I can use this day or night but I find I prefer to use it at night because it can sometimes feel grainy when I layer it with my daytime products.

  • Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil - ☼ ☾ - An affordable and simple oil, this beauty is one of my most recommended skincare products for all skin types. Indie's squalane is rich but lightweight enough for day time. It looks beautiful under makeup if you want a gentle oil to add some glow to your moisturizer or foundation. I also apply this before I use any facial tools to add some slip. During the colder months I use this nightly for extra hydration.

  • Indie Lee Stem Cell Serum - ☼ - I have gone through two bottles of this serum which promises to address firmness, texture, and tone while protecting against pollution. It's super gentle but effective, my skin is always more radiant when I use it. It costs more than her other serums (by a lot), but then again it works well, so do with that what you will.

  • NeoCutis BioSerum Firm Rejuvenating Growth Factor and Peptide Treatment - ☾ - This might be the most transformative serum I have ever used. I say this every time I talk about it. I saw noticeable improvement in days. DAYS. I use it nightly and my skin has never been happier. It combines a powerful blend of proprietary peptides with human growth factors. This anti-aging serum helps reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles while brightening the skin. Sodium hyaluronate replenishes moisture and helps boost the skin's resilience. It is stupidly expensive. But also completely worth it.

  • DefenAge 8-in-1BioSerum - ☾ - After falling for the NeoCutis BioSerum Firm (above), I was keeping my eye out for a more affordable option. My friends in the skincare community found it for me. This serum uses Defensins, a term coined by Defenage, which are natural molecules that signal our body to create new skin by activating the dormant reserves of "fresh" and young cells. The serum contains an identical copy of human "defensins" made via bio-synthesis - but it won't activate the same type of cells as the NeoCutis, so this option is less controversial. It also contains Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Sea Whip, and a blend of natural antioxidants, enzymes and hydrating technologies.

  • Biologique Recherche Serum De Teint - ☼ - This hydrating serum has helped keep my troublesome t-zone balanced in the the months I have been using it - and no product I've tried in years past has been able to do this. It's been my go-to "base" since quarantine started (along with a tinted SPF) as I haven't been wearing much foundation at all. It's completely wonderful, but also kind of a pain. It does not work well with some of my favorite face products (it will pill) and I need to wait a good 10 minutes before applying SPF over it (some people do the tint over SPF but I didn't love that for me). It can get streaky if it doesn't like what you've applied it over or if you've forgotten to shake it before applying. But, when I find that perfect happy zone, this stuff makes me look the A-list celebrity version of myself. I've discovered applying it with an Artis brush helps me use less and the finish is damn near holy.


Toners/Essences/Mists

  • Uruoi S3 Extra Mild Lotion - ☼ ☾ - This watery toner is a lightweight water-based essence suitable for even the most sensitive skin. It helps maintain the skin’s natural oil for healthy, hydrated, balanced skin. It also helps protect and strengthen skin barrier from environmental factors, and boosts moisture levels. I usually pat this into my skin after a shower, but its also great to pat in between your other skincare steps to they absorb better.

  • Laneige Cream Skin Mist - ☼ ☾ - This mist is officially my favorite mist. I want a mist to actually do something other than feel refreshing, and this gentle, fragrance free mist is so packed with so many moisturizing ingredients that some people can use is as a stand-alone moisturizer. Fun fact: the mist and lotion (toner/essence) are the exact same product, just different names and usage instructions.


Actives

  • Deviant Gentle Resurfacing Liquid - ☾ - With a pH if 3.6, this is the most effective yet gentle acid exfoliating toner I have ever used. It features an 8.2% blend of AHA’s (Mandelic, Lactic, Glycolic, Malic & Citric), BHA (Salicylic Acid), and PHA (Gluconolactone) to exfoliate along with some brightening & hydrating ingredients. Once I worked this lightweight toner into my routine my skin fucking CHANGED. After a few months of use my skin texture & tone were more even. My melasma began to fade dramatically. I do have an RX Retinol I alternate nightly with this, and the combo has been a damn dream. Deviant is also a small business with only 2 people running it. The time and effort they put into meticulously formulating their products is insane. This product was recently featured in Caroline Hiron's skincare kits, and it routinely sells out.

  • Allies of Skin Mandelic Pigmentation Corrector Night Serum* - ☾ - This product is new-ish to me and has a pH of 3.5. I use it the same way I use the GRL but this formula is more of a serum instead of a watery liquid. It features 11% Mandelic, Lactic + Salicylic Acid, 1% Bakuchiol, 8 Brighteners, & 7 Antioxidants & Peptides. Again, this formula is just *chef's kiss*. Exfoliating yet hydrating. When I tell you my skin has looked better than it has ever looked I am not kidding. I have stopped wearing foundation 90% of the time because my skin is just goddamn RADIANT & my melasma is barely visible.

  • Rx Epiduo - ☾ - No link because this is another prescription. If there is a single product in all of this list has made the biggest difference to my skin it is Rx retinol. There is no other anti-aging, acne fighter on the market more effective than retinol. I've used it on and off since I was a teen and nothing compares. Currently I am using Epiduo Forte.


SPFs

Let me start this section by saying if you aren't using SPF then your entire skincare routine is pointless. Okay, moving on.

  • Elta MD UV Clear Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF 46 - - This lightweight tinted SPF is my favorite SPF, ever. I use a pump of this with the Colorescience Glow SPF to make my perfect base. I no longer wear foundation thanks to those two sunscreens. This zinc-based sunscreen is oil-free and great for acne prone skin. Anyone with melasma should always be using a tinted SPF to further prevent the dark spots from occurring. This beauty also contains Niacinamide, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, Antioxidants, and Lactic Acid. A true winner. It also comes in a clear version if you don't want the tint.

  • ColoreScience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield Glow SPF 50 - - This SPF is giving the above one a run for the spot of favorite product. This glowy, dewy, heavenly SPF has helped me kiss foundation goodbye. It comes in two shades, Glow and Bronze. I use Glow daily and have never gotten more compliments on my skin. Just so damn good.

  • ColoreScience Sunforgettable® Total Protection™ Brush-On Shield SPF 50 - - Fantastic for on-the-go touchups, or for the SPF resistant, this brush-on powder SPF is really lovely. Brush the powder around your face for 60 seconds for the correct coverage. It will mattify your makeup, as it acts like a setting powder. I keep this in my purse and use it throughout the day to reapply my SPF.

  • SkinBetter Sunbetter TONE SMART SPF 68 SunscreenCompact - - Another lovely option for SPF touch ups, this tinted balm comes in a compact and not only goes over makeup beautifully it also gives you a poreless finish. Estheticians are obsessed with this easy to use product and I understand why!

  • Krave Beauty The Beet Shield - - A lightweight, soothing day fluid that protects skin from environmental aggressors. This dewy, yummy, lightweight protector could easily double as a moisturizer for normal and oily skin types. It's loaded with beetroot extract to add antioxidants and reduce pigmentation from previous sun damage. This leaves zero whitecast.


Body/Shower Products

  • Nécessaire The Body Wash - ☼ ☾ - This is not news - this is the best body wash I have ever used. It is NOT a typical body wash. Nécessaire puts the care, effort, and ingredients into their body products most brands put into their $300 face serums. I prefer the unscented version of this wash, as I can use it every part of my body, even the lady bits. Code 10CLAIRE saves you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Necéssaire The Body Lotion - ☼ ☾ - Hands down, the best body lotion I've ever used. I tried DOZENS in my life and could never commit to using body lotion regularly until this came into my life. It is perfect - lightweight, sumptuous, sinks in immediately, fragrance free - it's formulated like most high-end brands formulate their facial moisturizers. Coupon code 10CLAIRE saves you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Nécessaire The Body Serum - ☼ ☾ - With key ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Ceramide NP - the ingredient list of Nécessaire's The Body Serum reads like that of a facial serum. It is described as a daily multi-hydration treatment for overall skin health. I love HA serums, HA is such a lovely ingredient for all skin types. On my dry skin, HA it always my first step to prep my skin to better absorb what I put on after. This serum is no different in I generally do not use it alone, but either mix or follow with body lotion. On the website, Nécessaire even recommends doing so. I think anyone who isn't *into* skincare might not like this serum or understand it. It is super lightweight and absorbs quickly but it does have the tell-tale HA tacky residue that takes a hot minute to go away. I follow with lotion immediately so I do not notice it. My husband would probably hate this, simply because he is weird with most textures and hates anything he can "feel" on his skin. In the summer time many people may comfortably use this serum as their only body hydrator. In the colder months, I think it needs a lotion to complement it - at least my skin certainly does. Discount code 10CLAIRE saves you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Nécessaire The Hand Cream - ☼ ☾ - The Hand Cream is thick but sinks in relatively quickly. You need less than you think. Its fragrance free (bless) and features skin-loving ingredients like Squalane, Niacinamide, and Shea Butter. I kind of have a love hate relationship with tubes like these - while visually the packaging is my vibe, I feel like the product is always pushing itself out of the tube so the tip and cap get messy. Once you get about halfway through the product and you need roll/squish the tube it gets...icky. Sometimes it cracks and products will seep at the seams, the letters will wear off, etc. I often avoid keeping tube products in my purse because I feel they are prone to punctures. I am not sure this will happen with the Necessaire, but I'm wary just from past experiences with similarly packaged products. Otherwise, this is a lovely formula I know I'll reach for often in the winter. Looking for a Necéssaire coupon code? Use code 10CLAIRE to save you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Nécessaire The Deodorant - ☼ ☾ - The ONLY natural deodorant to work for me. Now, remember, this is a deodorant not an antiperspirant. It does contain Silica, Zinc, and Kaolin Clay to help keep you dry but I found I sweat just as much as normal. The combination of Mandelic and Lactic Acids is what helps neutralize odor - and it does a damn fine job. I am so pleasantly surprised by how well this works for me. At first I primarily used the sandalwood because I was convinced it worked better but really I just liked the smell. Nowadays I interchange it with the unscented based on my mood. Lately I've leaned more into the unscented (*surprises no-one*). For the average day this deodorant works beautifully without reapplying. I did test it on a few 100+ degree days - I was sweating profusely and I needed to reapply. I have not worked out with this so I can't speak to how it handles intense activity. True life: I'm lazy. It is a twist up cream formula which has never been my favorite but I'm not exactly mad at it. It comes out white and dries down clear. You need to wait a hot second before putting on clothes. I found it will continue to dispense even after you've finished twisting so there is always product on the inside of the cap, which feels wasteful and messy. But other than that, I am thrilled with this and plan to rebuy. Looking for a Necéssaire coupon code? Use code 10CLAIRE to save you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Nécessaire The Body Exfoliator - ☼ ☾ - In short, it helps keep my body acne at bay with acids and physical exfoliation. The charcoal beads begin to breakdown while you scrub so you can't accidentally over exfoliate. I use this once or twice a week and it does wonders for keeping my body clear and (KP) bump free. I also love to use it to exfoliate my legs before shaving to avoid razor burn. Looking for a Necéssaire coupon code? Use code 10CLAIRE to save you 10% on Necéssaire.

  • Nécessaire The Sex Gel * - ☼ ☾ - If you are having penetrative sex and aren't using lube you're doing yourself a disservice. The chic packaging looks nice on a bedside table or blends in easily with your skincare if you're worried about that type of thing. The formula has no weird scent, and the packaging doesn't leak so there no sticky mess on your nightstand. It's gentle, has the perfect amount of slip, won't leave residue on your sheets or clothes...it's everything you never knew lube could be. *Pro tip - if you are new to using menstrual cups, and are having a hard time getting them in, especially on drier period days, I use a lil bit of the Sex Gel to help my cup slide into place easier. **this product has sadly been discontinued

  • Maude Body Wash * - ☼ ☾ - The body wash is also a multi-use product, as it doubles as bubble bath. This luscious gel has a gentle foam and star ingredients like meadowfoam seed oil, Niacinamide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and contains omega-3, 6, 0 and vitamins B3, B5, C, and E. It has a pH of 5.5-6.5 and is safe to use on your entire body, even the juicy bits. You can use code "CLAIRE" to save money on your Maude order.

  • Maude Body Oil * - ☼ ☾ - As we move into winter I start using body oil more often. This lightweight version is designed for dry or wet skin, as a hydrator or a massage oil. For me, it actually absorbs super quickly and doesn't leave an oily residue whatsoever. To use it as a massage oil you'd have to use quite a bit to maintain a slip. Key ingredient call outs are jojoba, coconut, argan, and castor oil. You can use code "CLAIRE" to save money on your Maude order.

  • BioDerma Atoderm Cleansing Oil * - ☼ ☾ - The gigantic 34oz bottle with last you AT LEAST a year, and for under $20. I use this for shaving and it never clogs my razor, and I rarely get razor burn anymore. It's lovely as a body wash, as it doesn't dry out the skin, instead leaving it nourished and soft. It does have a light fragrance, but thankfully it doesn't linger and has never given me any irritation.

  • The Fur You Fur Oil * - ☼ ☾- I Love this oil! It’s so multi purpose and a game changer for my shaving game. I was gifted a bottle ages ago and it took me some time to really work it into my routine but once I did I haven’t looked back. The best place for me has been my underarms. I use this after I shave and I no longer have red, irritated, razor-rashed pits with in-growns. My underarms are smoother and irritation free. I’ve stared using this after shaving my legs as well because I always get those tiny red dots all over - they aren’t raised but they’re not cute. This helps tremendously. The red dots aren’t 100% gone but they’re significantly diminished. Lastly, I always put a few drops into my bath for good measure. This is one of the only products on this list that does contain some fragrant essential oils, so I wanted to point that out for those who avoid them. I avoid them for anything I put on my face, but I've had no issues on my body. You can use code "CLAIRE" to save money on your Fur order.
