Here are 10 moisturizers beauty editors love
Look, we love winter as much as the next person.
Bask in front of the fire, take a winter walk in the park, make hearty soups and wear all the cozy clothes we can get our hands on.
However, when it comes to our skin in the winter, and how dry, itchy, and sensitive it can be when the temperature drops and we spend more time indoors, well, we could do without it.
That’s why I’ve rounded up 10 of the best moisturizers on the market. Writing about beauty for a living, I’ve had the chance to test out hundreds of creams, serums, and masks over the years, as well as interview many skin care experts and estheticians – and so when. I’m saying these really are the real heroic hydrating products, they really, really are.
1. Summer Fridays Butter Lip Balm
With a unique blend of vegan waxes, this lip balm will soften your lips faster than you can say “bend over”.

4. Weleda skin food
This cult product is found in all the handbags of beauty publishers – and probably on their bedside tables too – around the world. Perfect for fixing dry hands, cracked heels, chapped lips, and – my favorite way to use it – as an ultra-rich overnight face mask.

5. Neutrogena Hand Cream Fragrance Free
It just might be the most popular hand cream in the world for a reason. Neutrogena’s signature formula contains almost 40% glycerin and is highly effective in relieving dry skin and cracking, as well as restoring and protecting the skin barrier. A winter staple.

7. Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion for Very Dry Skin
It’s not just the skin on my face that gets dry in the winter, my body skin suffers as well – that’s why I can’t do without Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion for Very Dry Skin.
Formulated with Shea Butter and a Triple Oat * Prebiotic Complex (Oatmeal + Oat Extract + Oat Oil), this body cream is rich, rapidly absorbed and non-greasy, and can soothe and hydrate even the driest skin.

8. Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%
We can’t talk about fighting dry skin without mentioning hyaluronic acid – and in my opinion, this extremely affordable product from The Ordinary is one of the best. I like to layer it under my normal day cream for an extra boost of hydration.

9. CeraVe SA Renewing Foot Cream
Dry, cracked heels are not only uncomfortable, but can, if left untreated, become quite painful. That’s why I’m obsessed with this super effective and super affordable foot cream from CeraVe.
Rich but not greasy and penetrates the skin quickly, I put it on in the evening and wake up with baby’s soft feet in the morning.
