Skinfree Skin Care and my allergies

So, some of you might remember how a while back I posted about my allergies. Well, not really, but I was posting about Designs by Vanessa's Body Tree giveaway. Anyway, I have major major skin allergies. I'm allergic to paraben (a preservative) and lanolin. That's the short list, but it covers most products that you leave on your skin - makeup, lotions, shampoo, soaps, etc. Seriously folks, I read labels before ANYTHING touches my skin. When the derm asked me what I use to wash my face, my reply was "a washcloth and water". He then proceeded to ask me what cleansers I used - no, seriously, a washcloth and water. It's the only combination that's actually safe.

You can imagine the frustration of trying to find moisturizers that I can actually use. As someone who has to be so careful, of course I am unfortunate enough to need to add moisture to my skin. Enter the great folks at Skin Free Skin Care. They are a godsend for people like me - or people who are just really interested in natural skin care. Seriously folks, this stuff works. It's GREAT! Right now, through their blog, they have a BOGO offer. You buy one in store, mail them your receipt, and they will send you a product. Sound too good to be true? I thought so too, until my free face scrub showed up the other day.

Now, I'm hoping they start a makeup line, but that could be wishful thinking on my part. Until then, anyone have a GREAT paraben and lanolin free line that they love?
