Alternative to Clinique comfort on call moisturiser?

Any ideas for alternative to Clinique comfort on call moisturiser? They have discontinued my hero product and now I've nearly emptied my stock pile I'm desperate for a replacement, complication is I have a severe nut allergy so can't use creams with nut oils in and this one was predominantly olive oil based so perfect for my totally over sensitive hideously dry and flaky skin!

What is with everything being discontinued? I love Dermologica Skin Smoothing Cream. Great for daily use and feels lovely.

Why do they do this.........

Also a fan of C on C although it wasn't quite as good as the Seriously Upset Skin one or the Weather Everything which I would love to find a replacement for.

Haven't used it but have you thought about something like the Avenne range from larger Boots- it's formulated for people with eczema etc.

Don't confuse it with Aveeno- this is something like L'eau d'Avenne and comes froma spa in france,

Thanks ladies, so bloody annoyed with Clinique as nightmare to find a replacement as have to faff about patch testing when trying anything new! Surprised they have discontinued C on C as hasn't really been out long and no replacement so they now have no real sensitive skin product in the brand.

Thanks for averne tip, have registered online and requested samples as may be an option as no bloody almond oil in ingredients (woo hoo!) seems to be the latest trend to stick nut oils in everything so getting increasingly hard to find something suitable!

Just a thought but have you tried ringing The Cosmetics Company? They have an outlet at McArthur Glen outlet at Yoprk (and maybe other places). They sell Estee Lauder owned brnads including Clinique. Maybe they have it in stock (don't know how long it was discontinued

Ah thanks warm I will give them a ring as I'm in the NE so a trip to York is a possibility one weekend if there is some in stock!

CLinique have a number you can call for discontinued stock. One of the sales assistants gave me it last year when an eyeshadow was discontinued. Clinique are the worlds worst for discontinuing I find. Anyway, maybe ask a sales assistant for the number, there is bound to be stock left somewhere

Waitrose bottom butter is intensive, olive oil based and about £2.50. Worth a try I reckon.

YES! I found a great alternative to comfort on call- it is BETTER and easily obtained! Go to Sephora and buy this type of cream.....
Dual Repair Face Cream from Fab First Aid Beauty. I know this is an old thread but if anyone else is disappointed about comfort on call being discontinued - you will love this other stuff. It is better for really dry skin and mine is also extremely sensitive check it out!
