    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.

    It's important to try around to see what works/feels best for you. It depends on if you have dry, normal, oily or comination skin, really.

    Just be sure to test it on your jaw or the side of your cheek first if you have sensitive skin. I just tried a Sephora moisturizer and had a terrible allergic reaction. :doh: The sad part is that I tested it first! But the reaction took a couple of days to be fully noticable, so I didn't realize what had happeded at first.
