Everything Facial Moisturizers
What's the best facial moisturizer within a reasonable budget. Like under $40.

Thanks

Really depends on your skin type and what it is you are after in a moisturizer.

I have combination skin and I personally feel the best moisturizer I have used is Chanel Hydramax. I use the Cream in wintertime and the Gel in summertime and this leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and non-greasy.

Also comes in another version, Oil-free gel which is probably better for someone with oilier skin. Each cost $40

If you're after something with an SPF, lots of people rave about Lancome Vinefit SPF15 and also an Estee Lauder one (either Daywear or Lightsource, I cant remember).

this may be a horribly naive question...

but what *exactly* are the benefits of a moisturizer?

Hey ,

A moisturiser is necessary after using a cleanser. Since cleansers contain surfectans which remove skin oils, it is necessary to replenish them.

I personally like Nivea Combination Skin Moisturiser a lot, as well as Garnier Synergie Fresh Quenching Lotion and Clinique Dramatically Different Oil-Free Moisturising Lotion.

I think that cheaper moisturisers are just as good as more expensive ones, I mean humectants are humectants, silicons are silicons and water-binding agents are water-binding agents etc.

Since I've fairly oily skin, I go for gel moisturizers - they feel clean and they don't add anything I don't need.

Hey ,

One more thing, try St. Ives Oil-Free Moisturiser, as well as L'Oreal Hydrafresh Gel-Fluid.

Edit to previous post: I meant Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisturiser.

I use Dermalogica's Skin Smoothing Cream (it's light and very mositurizing). I am currently looking for something I can use on my face at night.

best to find the kind that hasn't been overprocessed... should have a greyish hue to it.
