Best Budget Moisturizers (Under $40)

Product Review

Everyone’s skin needs moisture (even oily skin), but a moisturizer with the latest state-of-the-art ingredients and a price tag to match is not always in our budget. Let’s look at some of the best moisturizers under $40.
CeraVe Moisturizers
One of the most highly recommended skin care ranges …by dermatologists. There’s an entire collection of CeraVe moisturizers to address every skin-type with the same active ingredients you find in clinical skin care (like ceramides and niacinamide) – at drugstore prices.
($13.99 – $16.99)
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè
The makeup artist’s holy grail of moisturizers.  This marvelous multi-tasker is not only amazing at immediately correcting and soothing critically flaky, dehydrated skin – it can be used as a mask, makeup remover and razor burn reliever. It’s totally non-comedogenic (even on oily skin) and we’re slightly addicted to the gorgeous glow it gives the skin.
Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer
No high-end technology, no claims of making you look 10 years younger …just really good, basic moisturizer that hydrates the skin VERY effectively. It locks that moisture in with an emollient extract from olives (squalane), which mimics skin’s protective natural surface oils (lipids). Basic has never been better – and the 8.4 oz. bottle (HUGE) is still less than $40.00 USD.
($19.50 – $39.50)
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Face Cream
An award-winning luxury cream …from the makers of  Oil Of Olay? Hard to believe, but all the hi-tech ingredients in serious skin care (amino-peptides, marine proteins) are packed into this little jar.  It firms and smoothes the skin’s surface almost immediately.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra
This is the answer for super sensitive skin – 0% Fragrance, 0% Preservative, 0% Alcohol, 0% Colorants.  It immediately soothes the tight, stinging and burning sensations of highly sensitive skin with Neurosensine, a unique calming agent and Shea Butter to intensely nourish and restore the skin’s surface comfort.
Weleda Skin Food
Chronically dry, rough skin has met its match. This ultra-rich, head-to-toe treatment cream is chock full of essential fatty acids (EFA), plus plant and herbal extracts to deeply hydrate, restore and protect skin. Absolutely no synthetic ingredients or chemicals are used in any Weleda product.
