    Default Recommend Your Face Soap

    Both my dh and I use Cetaphil and love it. Trying to avoid parabens though. Can you recommend your healthier alternative?

    in the am I use Kiehl's Blue Herbal gel cleanser, and in the PM during the summer months I use Earth Science Clarifying. At night during the rest of the year I use a creamier cleanser. Beauty Without Cruelty's Herbal ream is my favorite (but be warned it's herbally so it stinks a bit.

    DH uses Dove.

    Which soap I use depends on the time of year but love the soaps here.

    I used to use Dr. Hauschka cleansing milk which worked well but is quite pricey, but have recently switched to this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/50778954...-tree-charcoal it's all natural, and I'm liking it a lot.

    I've been using coconut oil and/or jojoba oil and I've been very happy. At night, I use it in the shower and wipe off excess with a wash cloth. In the morning I just use water. My skin feels very balanced. I know a few others on this board do the same (thanks for the rec by the way).

    I like the Boscia purifying cleanser--I think the Sephora link was for Boscia--and I also really like Caudalie's foaming cleanser, also at Sephora. Don't know your skin type though. Think both lines are very free of additives.

    Try Sephora online. They have a nice selection of 'natural' cosmetics and you get to choose samples when you order. I also like the Ole Henrickson cleanser but the rest of the line is very pricey. Actually so is Caudalie...but the cleansers aren't bad price-wise.

    This is pretty much what I do also.
    I do jojoba oil, but I am pretty lazy about it. I usually put it on, then wipe off with warm wet cloth. At night, I will then put more back on and leave on as my moisturizer. In the shower, I just usually use water - sometimes whatever soap I am using on my body (Which tends to be a plain unscented one - I don't do well with scents)
