While we normally err on the side of heavier moisturizers once winter temperatures abound, we find ourselves making an exception as of late. Why? Because gel cream moisturizers are soothing, calming AND nourishing all at once! And, while we do recommend using a heavier moisturizer at night, these five will get you through every day looking and feeling your absolute best.
Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream For Dry Skin
An absolute miracle worker–and it’s under $10! We love the pink hue of the moisturizer, but what we really love? The fact that it erases all dryness in an instant, even after a long flight.
$8.49 at drugstore.com
Peter Thomas Roth Laser-Free Regenerator Moisturizing Gel-Cream
Another pink option! This one smells divine and works to reduce everything from wrinkles to dullness. Definitely a miracle worker!

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
The first gel cream we ever used … and still the one we turn to in a pinch! It’s oil-free and sinks right into skin without any greasy residue. Definitely a must have for your skincare arsenal.

Philosophy Take A Deep Breath
Need to relax … or does your skin, at least? Well, then reach for this moisturizer, which diffuses oxygen to the skin for an instant pep me up.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Water-Sure Gel
This is the latest addition to our gel cream moisturizer loves. It’s cooling and refreshing, we love the fun green hue, and it doesn’t feel sticky at all upon the skin.
