Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion: 4.2 fl, $26.00
This moisturizer has a cult following. The iconic lotion sinks into the skin quickly, and feels very lightweight. I have used this product for years along with the Clinique 3-step system, and also as a standalone moisturizer for the daytime and nighttime. It’s also great for chapped lips!
GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment: 1.7 fl, $69.00
The masks from GlamGlow have a high reputation for delivering results, and ThirstyMud is no exception. I actually use this as a nighttime moisturizer instead of a mask, and I can honestly say my skin has never felt so soft and hydrated. I feel like my makeup goes on smoother after a night letting my skin bask in the goodness of this product, too! Tip: To see if it’s right for you, ask a Sephora employee for a sample before splurging!
Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer: 2.5 fl, $17.00
This lotion feels light and airy and wears well under makeup, but also protects with SPF 30, making it a great choice for the A.M. It also smells great! Not to mention, it contains light-reflecting minerals to help even out the skin tone. I love this lotion because it multi-tasks while keeping my skin hydrated.
