The Best Moisturizers You Can Buy At The Drugstore

December 31, 2017

Colder weather brings a lot of shitty things, one of them being dry af scalp. I swear, I try my best to not appear or act thirsty, but my own fucking skin betrays me, looking more cracked and dry than the Sahara desert. The solution: moisturizer. The worst proportion about writing this is trying to spell moisturizer. Aside from my inability to sound out the letters, moisturizer doesn’t have to be complicated. If you WANT a drawn-out journey to the makeup segment of the department store, then by all means. Like, yes, there are some legit brands there that’ll likely construct you seem 20 years younger and erase all fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, improve your relationship, allows researchers to drop-off 15 pounds while feeing pizza, etc. But unless you’re super into hurling down upwards of $85 on a 3 oz. glass jar of the shit, heading to CVS or Walgreens is perfectly acceptable. These are the best drugstore moisturizers to fix your gross, scaly wintertime skin.

1. CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM

It isn’t sticky, it’s a nighttime formula( so naturally thicker and more of a treat for your skin ), it’s gentle, and has hyaluronic acid for extra hydration. it’s literally great for all skin forms, so whether you’re dry and crusty or greasy like a pizza, CeraVe remains a trusted ally.

2. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer

Although I hate Jennifer Aniston with the fiery power of hundreds of thousands of burning red hot sunlights( CHANGE YOUR FUCKING HAIR CUT. IT ISN’T 1998 ), I cannot deny the power of Aveeno. This shit has an SPF 30 built in, leaves your skin with a subtle incandescence, and assimilates super fast. I still dislike Jennifer Aniston, but I will buy this product.

3. Avene Hydrance Optimale Rich Cream

This sounds French and fancy, so I’m not amazed it’s listed on like, every roundup of fucking amazing moisturizers. if there’s one thing the French know, it’s looking better than all of us fat fuck Americans without trying. This little Parisian miracle contains thermal spring water( of course if does) and goes on like a fine French custard. So buy this if you’re into rubbing dessert on your face.

4. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Kristen Bell told me to use this, so I did. This whipped gel contains hyaluronic acid, so it’s like adding water to your skin without the shine or like, wetness. You can wear it under A LOT of makeup, so this is perfect for seeming not crusty and dry when you’re needing extra foundation.

5. Ponds Dry Skin Cream

Your grandmother definitely slathered this on, since this brand has been around for literally ever. It works really well if your scalp is a pussy sensitive, and also helps your skin be much smoother overall.

6. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer

B vitamins, more hyaluronic acid, and other v important ingredients help this magical concoction lift and hydrate your skin to help with not only dryness, but wrinkles that are like, right around the corner for most of us.

7. Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme

For like$ 6, you can grab this little jar of sorcery. You can use it on your face and body, and it’s great for sensitive skin. It’s incredibly gentle, too, which is good if you’re prone to shitty, dry winter skin.
