I'm in my 50s and my skin went desert-dry, red, and flaky overnight. I've tried Elta-D Barrier Renewal cream but it has dimethicone in it and sometimes when I put makeup or Elta-D sunblock over it, it forms little balls all over my face that I have to brush off. My dermatologist recommended Skinceuticals Triple Lipid moisturizer (and I've tried another Skinceuticals moisturizer), but that sinks in without a trace and leaves my skin dry. These products have no fragrances or chemicals in them. They smell nice and fresh, like olive oil and herbs, and they leave my skin feeling great. This is a good way to sample some core products in the line.
