Experts Picks

Dr. Meg’s Pick
Jumiso – Waterful Hyaluronic Acid Cream

This cream has lots of hydration and is great for those with sensitive skin. It helps to lock in all the products underneath. It is best suited for those with oily skin since it’s pretty lightweight but it also doesn’t leave a heavy residue.

“Despite its claims of deep hydration it is surprisingly quite lightweight and does not feel heavy at all. It applies easily to the skin without messing up the rest of my skincare underneath and absorbs well. There is no tacky or greasy feeling left on the skin. It is nourishing enough for my combo skin to use during the daytime and applies nicely underneath sunscreen or makeup. I love a good gel moisturizer and this one is no exception.”-Treasuredbeautyfinds

Dr. Claudia’s Pick
Kiehls – Ultra Facial Cream

While this is another lightweight cream, it is better suited to those with dry skin. It can leave a bit of a residue behind but it is very hydrating and is great for the winter.

“A no-frills, fragrance-free moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated in the AM and PM. The cream is lightweight, but moisturizing. It absorbs quickly into my skin without any residue. In the AM, I use it before applying sunscreen and in the PM it is the last step in my skincare routine.” -Winnietriesit

Dr. Crystal’s Pick
La Roche Posay – Cicaplast Baume B5

This cream is not only another one great for those with dry skin but it works well with those who have sensitive skin. It is better for nighttime use because it can be a little heavy depending on the skin type.

“This absorbed very quickly into my skin without any greasy residue and no tacky feel. It did soothe my skin initially and did not cause any additional irritation. I was very happy that this
had no scent to it.”

Dr. Jenny’s Pick
Skinceuticals – Triple Lipid Restore

This last moisturizer can be used by all skin types but it is best suited for those with dry and resilient skin. It has restoring qualities and is very hydrating.

“The product that got me hooked. A small sample that came in the mail of this is what moved me from drugstore skincare to looking for quality products. I was 2 uses into the sample when I ordered a full size, and was disappointed when I ran out of the sample before it arrived. This goes on so smooth and makes my face feel soft and hydrated. This is thick, but rubs in smooth and does not take a lot. I’m able to use even in the morning just leaving some time to set in before applying any makeup or spf.”-Lynnsey
