Finally found the 8th wonder of the world.

First of all, the customer service is out of this world amazing. I spoke with Laura Lee, who helped me pick out products that would be suitable for my extremely dry and sensitive skin. The subscription service is awesome too, you'll never run out! Which is great because this stuff is like a drug to me, I'm afraid to run out! It's so hard for me to find something that actually works. I cannot use any fragrance, dyes, alcohol, the list goes on. This stuff actually soaps up too. I have been using baby shampoo my whole life so it's nice to use something that doesn't have a teddy bear on it. I have tried products from all over the world and I finally found something that works! Within ONE day, my skin was calmer, less dry and my dermatitis started to go away,,, within ONE day. Highly, highly recommend. My skin is the best it's ever been.

Life saver

When I first started using this product I was suffering terribly from a severe outbreak of contact dermatitis. It seemed that ALL the products I was using, I had suddenly become allergic to after years and years of use. My doctor recommended VMV Hypoallergenics and the rest is history. I DO miss fragrance ( I'm allergic to fragrance) but Essence Skin Saving Super wash lathers wonderfully and you really feel clean and fresh after using it. It also is good for my hair. The best thing: my dermatitis cleared up!

Really like it

I like this product a lot. I did find that I needed to order the volumizing conditioner as well as it get like my hair was a bit dry after washing. I have fine/thin/color treated hair. But it does the job I need it to without all the perfume and itching! Only use this as shampoo for now, not as a body wash.
