    1. A bottle of Thayer's alcohol-free unscented witch hazel toner ideal for anyone who has wanted to try this cult-fave but was deterred by the rose version.

    Witch hazel has a naturally strong fragrance that some may find irritable, but if you're not sensitive to it and looking for an alcohol-free toner, this may be the one for you!

    Promising review: "After trying the Thayers Witch Hazel with rose water and still dealing with breakouts I checked its ingredients. Of course it contained fragrance, which is not good for skin. I decided to give their unscented version a shot and am so glad I did! This alone did not cure my hormonal acne, but it sure has played a part. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry at all and doesn’t sting or tingle or anything like that. If you tried the other scented versions in the past with no luck the fragrance may have been the issue. Try this one!" —Target Reviewer

    Get it from Target for $10.99.

    2. A 19-pound bag of pure and organic Dead Sea Mineral Bath Salts to help you unwind and soothe sore muscles at the end of a long day. I use this brand myself and swear by it, as do others!

    Amazon, Harper Hendrickson / BuzzFeed

    I am scent-sensitive (surprise) and can never find 100% additive-free bath salts in stores nearby. I gave this brand a try recently and I will now use these forever. These salts are organic, additive-free, unscented, and packed with natural minerals. The salts are fine-ground and evaporate quickly in the water, and don't irritate me at all as I soak, just soothe! Other brands just don't compare, IMO.

    Promising review: "Great deal! The whole family uses this for all kinds of things! Pregnancy, colds, eczema, etc. No artificial fragrances or irritants, just the real minerals we need!" —Marion

    Get a 19-pound bag from Amazon for $31.87.

    3. A vegan waste-free lip balm made with biodegradable packaging that comes in a scent-free variety. Honestly, I love to see it.

    Promising review: "It's cute. I bought this as a deep-conditioning 'treatment' for my lips. I've had super chapped lips my whole life and I use ChapStick dozens of times throughout the day. This product goes on very smoothly and stays on for a great amount of time. Thank you, I definitely will repurchase. Also, love the eco-friendly packaging." —Krystl Oxford

    Get it from HoniBeez on Etsy for $8.55 each.

    4. A fragrance-free, non-toxic Babyganics toy and high-chair cleaner gentle enough to clean up your little one's things.

    Promising review: "We love this product in our home and use it multiple times a day. My favorite thing about this spray is that there is no aggressive chemical odor! I was really worried that meant that it wouldn’t clean well, but I was pleasantly surprised to see this cleaner removes even the stickiest of baby messes. I also love that I don’t have to worry about my son putting toys in his mouth after I’ve cleaned them...plant-based products for the win!" —Carey Shofner

    Promising review: "Best moisturizer ever! My skin is dry, sensitive, and acne-prone. This has been my all time favorite after using so many irritating moisturizers that feel like they're burning my skin. Very light and fragrance-free, so it really cuts down on irritation." —veronicas

    Get it from Target for $15.49.

    7. An all-natural nourishing shampoo bar and conditioner bar (both with an unscented option) for anyone who wants hair-care that's safe for the environment and your scalp. You can also add a mold-resistant soap dish to your order for no extra charge.


    Promising review (for the shampoo): "I wondered whether it would create enough lather, and whether my hair would feel squeaky clean...and yes on both counts!!" —Sandy

    Promising review (for the conditioner): "Love love love this conditioner bar! I’ve been on the search for an unscented shampoo/conditioner bar for years that does not enrage my extreme allergies.

    Promising review: "I have severe redness in my face that I’m sure is rosacea since pretty much every face wash makes my face even worse. I finally found this recommended on a website to calm my skin. It’s so soft and actually helps with the redness. I also haven’t broken out at all over for the last three months which is pretty much a miracle because my skin always flares up. I highly recommend trying this if you have sensitive skin." —Ronald P.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Get it from Humankind for $15.

    13. An additive-free and scent-free organic bubble bath made with shea butter to smooth and soothe skin while you soak.

    up close shot of the bubble bath bottle and quote "If you're sensitive to all fragrance (even natural fragrances from essential oils), this unscented bubble bath is your best bet.

    Promising review: "After sitting in front of a computer for eight hours a day, there is nothing better than soaking in a warm, relaxing bubble bath. I have been trying to find one that doesn't hurt my skin afterward and this is definitely it! It's so gentle and I can add my own essential oils depending on my mood. Thank you for making such a superior product, Alaffia!" —Christy

    Promising review: "This is the only cream we used on my son. He has bad reactions to other brands and gets dried out by lotions. My friend recommended this when my son was diagnosed with eczema as a baby, and we haven't had any flare-ups since. We use it twice a day and everyone comments how soft his skin is." —Target Reviewer

    Get it from Target for $20.99 or from Amazon for $19.97.

    15. Cetaphil facial cleanser gentle and effective enough to use daily. I switched to Cetaphil over a year ago when my HRT was causing my skin to become much more oily and acne-prone, and it helped a lot.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cleanser. I have sensitive combination skin so my cheeks and the outer parts of my face are really dry while my nose, forehead, and chin are more on the oily side. This cleanser does an amazing job at cleansing my face and I always feel clean after using. it. It does a really good job of balancing the oil on my skin so my T zone doesn't feel oily while my cheeks feel nourished. It's extremely gentle and leaves my skin so soft and not stripped. I also appreciate that it is fragrance-free because my skin can sometimes react and get irritated when using products that are heavily scented/have fragrance. This cleanser lasts forever and is so good especially at its price point. I highly recommend this for people who have sensitive, oily, dry, or combination skin or are simply on a budget. You won't regret buying this cleanser. Its so amazing!" —Customer

    Get a 20 ounce bottle from Amazon for $11.90 (available in multilple sizes).

    16. A fragrance-free laundry detergent that'll keep your clothes fresh and clean. You won't find any overbearing scents that may irritate your skin or send you into migraine land here!

    Promising review: "This is a great detergent for our household full of allergies and sensitivities. And this packaging is a game changer! I love how I can just squeeze it over the washer and easily dispense the right amount liquid right into the laundry. For me this is even more convenient than pods." —Tladd

    Get it from Target for $12.99

    17. And a hypoallergenic, mineral laundry egg (with a fragrance-free option) that'll last for 72 washes. It's safe for sensitive skin, in case you're in need of a soap-free laundry option.

    Get it from The Grommet for $17.95.

    18. A Sol De Janeiro body lotion that's as creamy as it is lightweight so you can moisturize and move right on with your life!


    This fragrance-free lotion is packed with colloidal oatmeal, cupuaçu butter, açaí, and coconut oil, and Brazilian passionflower to soothe and calm even the driest skin.

    Promising review: "This lotion is wonderful. I love that the product has zero fragrance, so it does not interfere with my fragrance. The lotion is thick but not heavy or greasy — just provides great moisture. The packaging is convenient and easy to use. I love this brand of moisturizer and this is a super scentless option." —chauny76

    Get it from Sephora for $40.

    What you get: 100% organic, vegan, and eco-friendly premium soaps that are pure and gentle, yet deliver big results, plus other goodies like pure essential oils. For those who only want the free-and-clear soaps, you can request the charcoal detox bars and simply pure bars for sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "WOW. This soap is nothing like I've ever used before. I'm seriously in love with it. I love the detox bars so much. I also love how gentle the pure bars are. Both myself and my 14-month-old daughter's skin are loving this bar. I just love how simple and pure the ingredients are in that bar. No toxic chemicals and no fragrance or coloring. That is not easy to find. I will also add that the massage aspect of the bar is so cool! The wonderful essential oils are also amazing. Oh and whoa my oder shipped wicked fast, that was awesome too!" —Mollie W.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $26/month.

    20. A creamy and protective unscented shaving cream from Cremo your face/body is gonna adore. I used to swear by the Sandalwood shaving cream for my face (just a dab goes a realllly long way) and now that I'm scent-sensitive I'm definitely gonna give this version a whirl 👀.

    Promising review: "This stuff is the best. I have sensitive skin and get ingrown hairs and razor burn if I use traditional shaving creams. I follow it with Burt's Bees After Shave Cream." —Yoni Wolff

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    21. Schmidt's simple and pure fragrance-free deodorant that'll keep your pits odor-free and moisturized. It's coconut-oil and shea butter based, and I personally swear by it as do many others.

    the writer's hand holding the unscented deodorant

    You wouldn't believe how many frgrance-free brands I went through before I found one that works for me. Other brands had other additives/ingredients that irritated the heck out of my skin, cause a red rash, or simply did nothing to de-stinkify me. On super sweaty hot days, I've def had to give this brand a re-apply, but it still lasts longer and works way better than anything else I've tried!

    Promising review: "I love this product! After trying different natural deodorants for years, I finally found one that doesn't irritate my skin and actually works. I've been using it for well over a year now. Similar to other natural deodorants, if I don't shower each day, I use a washcloth with a little bit of soap to wash my pits prior to reapplying. It maybe takes 45 seconds and isn't burdensome. If I don't do this, I've found that natural deodorants don't work as well on day two because they work best on clean skin." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.33.

    22. And a tub of 100% pure, raw, fair-trade shea butter to use on your skin, scalp, or as a base for DIY scent-free hair masks, body butters, and face masks. This is by far the creamiest and purest shea butter brand I've ever tried, and I use daily it to moisturize my skin and soothe folliculitis flare-ups.

    Harper Hendrickson / Via BuzzFeed

    This shea butter is fragrance-free, but raw shea butter does have a light, natural scent, FYI! Also little goes a long way, so if you find that over time your shea butter is becoming dried out, try placing the closed tub in a bowl of hot water to liquify it, then let it re-solidify — this will bring the lovely creamy texture back in no-time! I also like to warm this shea butter up in my hands before applying so it goes on super-smooth.

    Promising review: "Love this shea butter! I have tried other brands that are gritty, but this brand is smooth and creamy, just like butter! I have extremely dry skin and this product keeps my skin soft and moisturized all day. Great in the sun too!" —Jayne Bogdajewicz

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.
