Best Moisturizer for Combination & Basically All Skin Types

I received a request from one of my subscribers asking what would be a good moisturizer for combination skin. I have combination skin and I've tried a lot of expensive moisturizers in my day, like Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. But the one moisturizer I love the best (and always keep in my vanity) can be bought from a drugstore. It's Cetaphil's Moisturizing Lotion.

This product was recommended to me awhile back by my dermatologist and I swear by it. According to the Cetaphil website, this product is a "non-greasy formulation that is mild, non-irritating and long lasting. This gentle moisturizing formula contains emollients and humectants that bind moisture to the skin. This fragrance-free moisturizer contains no lanolins or parabens that could irritate sensitive skin."

I've been using this moisturizer for years and I never get breakouts from it. And for the cheap price of like $10 or so, it's well worth it.

What moisturizer do you swear by? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. I use Cetaphil at night because it doesn't have any SPF in it. For daytime I LOVE Clinique Superdefense SPF 25. I have very dry sensitive skin and this works great. I've been using it about 2 years! Loving the blog btw!

  2. I love cetaphil, it's so cheap and it's great for sensitive skin.

  3. I swear by Aveeno's Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer w/ SPF 15. I started using it years ago when my face became red and dry from using Cinique's Dramatically Different.

    Aveeno can be on the expensive side, but since it's sold in drugstores, just watch for sales! It's worth it..
