So those moisturizers labeled for normal skin aren't necessary, are they? That's good to know about that!

Congrats for the site!

Thanks a lot. Comercials always make us buy more and more!

@Paul: You are quite correct. Why would somebody with normal skin, which means you have a normal amount of moisture, want to add more moisture to your skin? Moisturizers should be used to remedy the problem of dryness when it exists.
