I’ll be honest, there’s some nights that I skip a few steps and just wash and moisturize but then here’s also nights where I do my full up routine AND a little more.  It all depends on how I’m feeling and how lazy I want to be or how extra I want to be.  So far, we’ve hit some a few steps so far and today’s article overs a major step – moisturizing!  Below is a range of options from very different price points and also different textures. So, I hope you find what works best for you!  As far as steps go, this is my normal routine:

  • Wash (cleanse or exfoliate, and when I exfoliate, it’s like once a week or so)
  • Essence, serums (face and eye)
  • Moisturizer
  • Eye cream
  • Lip balm (Remember to wait between steps so your face soaks in all the product.)

Here are the top moisturizers that I picked out for you:

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Intensive Hydrating Cream ($16.93)

If you’re kept up with the past few posts, I’ve mentioned the Innisfree Green Tea Foaming Cleanser, well this hydrating cream is in the same line and it smells just as fresh as the cleanser.  It’s got the same ingredients as the cleanser when it comes to the Jeju green tea and also has green tea seed oil that way your skin feels hydrated and that thirsty AF skin is quenched. The great thing about this cream is that its for all skin types and just helps keep your skin feel hydrated and plump.  In fact, just like the cleanser, the green tea that’s used in this product is grown on Innisfree’s USDA certified organic Control Union Certifications (CUC) fields.  The smell, it’s so crisp and clean and goes perfectly with the cleanser.  I definitely recommend this for morning use because the smell just puts you in a good mood.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Moisture Creme ($59)

This moisture creme is part of the newer Super-Pomegranate line from Estee Lauder and I love this creme and have a sample of the face wash waiting to be used.  But back to the creme, it’s a pretty rich creme that is infused with antioxidants and pomegranate concentrate that helps deliver 24-hour hydration for beautiful plumped, glowing skin.  

Out of all the moisturizers, this is definitely good for all skin types and helps protect with antioxidant power, gently detoxifies, and infuses your skin with moisture.  You literally will look glowing and plump AF.  You know when your skin is so plump and you like touch it? You know how it’s just so bouncy and soft?  That’s what I’m talking about.  Ingredients in this creme consist of pure essence of mediterranean pomegranate which is harvested from the pristine Mediterranean basin.  I mean that sounds luxurious AF and honestly, you don’t have to use a lot of this product because of how thick and rich it is.  It’s also a great smell for first thing in the morning, it’s like a burst of freshness.

Chantecaille Bio Lifting Oil-Free Fluid ($275)

Obviously, we’re going to end this with a Chantecaille product because, I’m obvs obsessed. From all the moisturizers, I feel like I like this best (obvs).

But this fluid right here, it helps keep my oily skin matte during the summer months.  So I don’t use it all year and it goes a long way for how expensive it is and how often I use it.  I honestly think that moisturizer comes in such a range that once I find something that works for my skin, I don’t switch it up that often.  I would honestly be talking about the Rose de Mai cream but since I’ve already reviewed that.  I figured I’d throw in something different. But for real, that Rose de Mai cream is bomb.

Okay, back to the fluid, this stuff is made with caffeine-free coffee stem cell entrants that provides a three-pronged approach that helps visibly pumps and hydrates your skin.  It has a cocktail of stem cell extracts to include plantar to help lighten the appearance of age spots, bionymph peptide to help soften the appearance of fine lines, and Daphne to help moisture dry skin and shield it from harsh environmental factors.  You just need two pumps, maybe one and a half and its soaks right in to your skin and you can immediately feel and see the difference.  Trust me.  This brand is amazing.
