Give it what it needs with the help of some seriously dependable moisturizers. We rounded up five of our favorites to make it easy for you — no matter your skin type.
The best all-around moisturizer is none other than EltaMD’s Moisturizer. It soothes even the most sensitive skin thanks to its simple formula made with petroleum. It’s the perfect pick for those who suffer from eczema and other skin concerns. It can even help promote healing following chemical peels, lasers and any other treatments! And depending on your application process, you can pick it up in a jar or tube for a super affordable price point.
Looking for a boost of radiance while you moisturize? South Korean cosmetics brand Laneige just launched its newest product: the Radian-C Cream with Vitamin C. Not only will it brighten your complexion, but it will also help diminish unwanted dark spots. Now that’s what we call multitasking!

But don’t worry! Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty recently released a skincare line that includes a lightweight sunscreen. It’s so comfortable, you won’t even know you have SPF on. Well, except for it’s light, fresh, desert melon scent.
