Top 5 Moisturizers Under $50

Winter can wreak havoc on our skin. The cold temperature and wind can not only dry out our skin, but can also chap and when severe, even cause flaking. Coming right out of the holiday season, pocket books have definitely tightened up a bit so we are focusing on FANTASTIC moisturizers for under $50.

1. Osmosis Skincare Immerse ($44): Immerse is an intense hydrator that can be used for light dry skin all the way to severely dry skin. For regular use, simply take two drops (it takes very little, so this should last awhile) and apply to your cleansed face. For individuals with extreme dryness, you can add the two drops to your current moisturizer for even more hydration. This is the perfect product for someone who has dry skin year around, but possibly it worsens during the winter months.

2. Cosmedix Rescue ($42): This is the perfect product for individuals who suffer with severe dry/eczema or irritated skin and for those who have recently undergone laser treatments. My favorite thing about this moisturizer is that you can use it as your daily moisturizer AND a mask. To use it as a mask, simply apply all over your face and leave it on for several minutes or even overnight. The reviews on are excellent for this product with one of the users stating that they loved this moisturizer because it didn't break them out. Always a plus!

3. Obagi Hydrate Facial Moisturizer ($45): If you are a guy or gal who struggles with keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day...then this is your moisturizer! This moisturizer is unique since it contains Hydromanil, a technologically advanced ingredient, which retains water and gradually delivers moisture to the skin. So not only does it provide immediate moisturization, it also continues to hold water in the layers of your skin over time.....8 hours to be exact based on a recent study.

4. glotherapeutics SPF 40 - Facial Moisturizer ($30.60): If you're a simple guy or gal who wants to use minimal products, then this is a fantastic option! This moisturizer not only delivers moisture to your skin, but it also provides you with your daily SPF of 40...AND has peptides with anti-aging benefits!
