Best Moisturizers Under $40

If you’re anything like me, your skin does a total 180 in the winter. When I don’t take care of my skin properly, it can get so dry and flaky. Since it’s not getting warmer any time soon, I figured I would share with you some of my favorite moisturizers. The best part? They’re all under $30!

Sephora Collection Nourishing Moisturizer

I’ve bought at least 3 tubs of this stuff since I found it this summer. It’s a great day and night moisturizer because it has 30 SPF and comes in at $16! It also has the green label at Sephora which means there are no parabens, sulfates, SLS and SLES, phthalates, mineral oils, formaldehyde, etc.

Kiehl’s Since 1851 Ultra Facial Cream

This is my current moisturizer and is able to hydrate your skin no matter if you’re dry or oily. The smaller tub (which is still a good size) comes in at $32. I love as day and night moisturizer in the winter, but it can get a little heavy in the summer.

NUXE Paris Crème Fraîche de Beauté

This moisturizer makes your skin GLOW! I got a sample of it when I purchased the NUXE Paris Huile Prodigieuse Riche. I went back to the pharmacy and got a big tub but have since run out. But what a dreamy duo! Let me tell you, my skin had never been smoother in my life than when I used these products together. I really need to order another online!

    It’s interesting to see what you’ve come up with, Mere. I’ve been using the Keils ultra for at least a year now. It’s the best I’ve used for the money! My dermatologist recommended it. I don’t have any flaky dryness anymore.❤️
