Thor's Day

Was ouchy last night, but the big problem is the eczema, which advances in its inexorable march daily. Maddening. I'll be hitting CVS today and saying "All your anti-itch stuff are belong to me", but seriously, I may have to call my doctor. :(

Help my face!

Despite the vast collection of fragrance stuff, I am very much Not A Girl - so I don't know where to look for this sort of thing! I have winter-dry skin and need a facial moisturizer, but everything at CVS is a jumble of parabens and other toxic stuff.

So. Looking for a facial moisturizer for dry skin, as natural as is reasonable, not soy-based (I'm allergic). Any ideas? What do y'all like?
