5 Moisturizers We Heart

You are NEVER too young to slather on the cream. The more you hydrate, the more dewy and glowy you look. And you can NEVER look too dewy and glowy. So.

Written On 4/20/2022

A super light, clean, tinted face elixir that feels like unhooking your bra can go a long way to even out your skin tone or cover blemishes.

But you can’t forget to skip the prep stage that comes before it: good ol’ fashion moisturizer. Hey, treat yourself.

Here are our top picks to prep your skin before you go freedreaming the day away.


CeraVe Moisturizing Cream won’t let you down. Running low? No worries. Amazon or CVS has your back. CeraVe makes options for every skin type, so no matter how your skin feels, you’ll have the right moisturizer. 

The OG

As an old-school allergy-tested, dermatologist-driven cosmetics offering, Clinique is a no-brainer. From” hydro-infused” to smart night moisturizers, there are tons to choose from. We love how lightweight they feel and that many come in perfect travel sizes too.

The “Adulting”

Kiehl’s moisturizer feels like buttah. They know what’s up with their new Age Defender Cream Moisturizer and sunscreen infused moisturizers. Also: Using Keihl’s somehow makes us feel just a little more adult, in a good, “I can handle this” type of way.

The Tree Hugger

We are a huge fan of Origins because of their sustainable practices. They care for over two million tree saplings around the world and use FSC™-certified packaging. Plus, their products are made from naturally-derived ingredients. We are incredibly down with eco-friendly beauty, and their moisturizers are oh-so-hydrating. 

The Up and Comer

First Aid Beauty has great skincare options. Their Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration has INTENSE hydration. We love that they focus on specific skin issues like eczema, dry skin, and acne. Take their skin quiz to see what other skincare you should pair with it before applying your freedreaming skin tint.
