We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Hydrated skin is hard to come by. Okay, maybe that’s not such a little secret … but it is the truth! And over the years, our skin has seen its fair share of dryness and scaly patches that would have some people running for the hills. But there is hope! There are a bevy of moisturizers out there guaranteed to get your skin back in tip-top shape. So read on to discover the ones that really and truly get the job done.
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Okay, we know what you’re thinking. This is way too expensive. And normally we’d agree with you … except for the fact that if we didn’t use this moisturizer, our skin would literally look and feel like the Sahara Desert. It’s gotten us out of tons of rough patches (no pun intended) and made our skin look so amazing that even on its worst day, we got compliments. Convinced? We thought so.

Bliss Best of Skintentions
We’d heard the old adage for years. “Wear sunscreen every day or you’ll get skin cancer!” Well, even though we agreed with it, we didn’t always follow the rule … until this baby came along, that is. It’s got a faint scent of oranges that wakes us up and makes us feel totally rejuvenated and energized, plus it’s not greasy and sinks right into the skin — perfect for a daily moisturizer. What’s not to love?
