Question from a newbie here

Any recommendation for moisturizer? I have dry and sensitive skin. I’m also tired of buying moisturizers in non recyclable containers

You can use any of these olive oil, pure calendula, coconut oil, Shea butter. these are all great options . For your sensitive skin, you may also be allergic to methylisothiazolinone which is a preservative hidden in fragrance.

100% agree with all the "use oil" comments!

It might take you a while to find the right fit for you, but don't give up on this! Moisturizer can be overpackaged.

I've also found this company in France where I live that offers refillable moisturizers. Never tried them, because I use oil πŸ˜‰ but if you're still looking for a traditional emulsion moisturizer, there are more of these brands appearing.

Coconut oil is one the popular options. I've used it a few times but found it OK.

You should check out bag balm. They sell it in a recyclable metal tin.

You can use jojoba oil with a few drops of essential oil. That should help
