Ask Melissa: Best Face Moisturizers at Every Price Point
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hydra-Pure Oil Free Moisturizer, BUY NOW, $78
New York City dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross created an impressively effective line of skin care after years of advanced scientific research and technology. The Hydra-Pure Oil Free moisturizer is a perfect choice for daily use if you have combination skin or break out easily. Great for wearing underneath your make-up, the moisturizer is non greasy and fragrance and animal cruelty-free. I have dry skin and like to use it after applying the Dr. Dennis Gross Active Vitamin D Serum-Oil on my face– amazing!
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, BUY NOW, $26
I find that Kiehl’s always has gentle products with impressive results. The Ultra Skin Facial Cream, a cult favorite, provides 24-hour moisture and continuously replenishes skin throughout the day. Not only does the cream hydrate really well and reduce moisture loss, but it does so without any greasy build-up. I love this cream but I can’t keep it in my cabinet for long because my husband seems to “borrrow” it all too frequently. Cool Kiehl’s Fact: Through Ultra Facial Cream, Kiehl’s was honored to lend support and protection from the elements to the heroic team of the “Greenland First Ascent” expedition. The six explorers completed the first-ever ascent!
RoC Multi-Correxion 4 Zone Daily Moisturizer SPF 30, BUY NOW, $22.09
This intensive, anti-aging formula is made with Retinal to smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Infused with antioxidents, vitamins C and E and formulated with UVA/UVB protection (SPF 30) it’s a great one to use now that spring is right around the corner. After four short weeks, RoC Multi-Correxion 4 Zone was clinically proven to diminish the appearance of aging–something we all love to hear. Although this day cream has a scent, it’s quite pleasant and priced just right!
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, Fragrance Free, BUY NOW, $21.99
I love when I find a drugstore brand product that can compete with the department store brands. For a fraction of the price of luxury skincare, Olay’s Micro-Sculpting Cream feels great on the skin, is non-greasy. It absorbs quickly and perfect for day or night use. Proven to hydrate better than several luxury creams costing up to $500, it’s no surprise that it’s America’s #1 selling anti-aging moisturizer. I’m thrilled they came out with a fragrance free version, and since then I rotate using Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with some of my more expensive favorites. Fabulous and affordable, you can find this skin stunner at your local drug store!
