I am currently using Avalon Organics Vitamin C moisturizing lotion, but it is just too heavy and greasy-feeling... Any suggestions? I was using Repechage, a seaweed based salon product, but it has parabens and so I assume also other things I am trying to avoid...
I really don't have time to make my own skin care products, and would love to find something that is ready-to-buy!!

Depending on the weather, I use unrefined shea (pea size on moist skin). I tried jojoba last night and today, and think I might be in love.............

I like Kiss My Face with aloe and alpha-hydroxy. I have "combination skin", and it's very good for moisturizing the dry parts without making the adjacent oily parts break out.
