This GH Seal star was one of only two to get a perfect score for moisturizing in our chemists' tests. Testers loved the lotion's "rich" and creamy feel and commented on how quickly it absorbed into their skin.
A favorite since it won in our 2013 Anti-Aging Awards, Lab testers raved about the moisturizing powerhouse's soft scent and non-greasy feel.
This cream outperformed 10 competitors — even one priced at $440! — in our Beauty Lab's studies. Our chemists were blown away by how well the GH Seal pick kept skin moisturized over a 24-hour period, with moisture increasing by 50% on average.
Our pros found this cream packed serious results — boosting hydration by over 40% in just six hours. Testers raved, "I liked that a little of this cream went a long way, so I didn't need to use a lot and it didn't leave my face feeling greasy."
Looking to try a retinol, but worried about sensitive skin? This Anti-Aging Award Silver Winner packs all the punch while still being gentle (and affordable!). It wowed in our Lab tests when it came to moisturizing and firming.
For a moisturizing and firming option sans retinol, try this GH Seal Star and Anti-Aging Gold Winner! Backed by our Lab tests and Seal promise, it will help you get the most out of your beauty sleep.
It's easy to forget SPF when you're not heading to the beach, so reach for a moisturizer that already includes it. This Anti-Aging Award winner and GH Seal star hydrated skin well in Lab tests and earned rave reviews from testers for improving skin tone and softening fine lines.
With over 1,700 reviews on Ulta (and virtually zero cons reported!), this super-rich cream is a lifesaver for anyone with dry skin. One reviewer raved, "I love everything about this cream! I use it at night and under my makeup."
You've probably seen this pick popping up in beauty tutorials on your Instagram feed. Packed with 24-carat gold flakes, this lightweight face oil is the perfect base for everything from a heavy contour to a no-makeup look.
More like a nourishing balm than a traditional face wash, this cleanses skin and dissolves makeup with a high concentration of natural oils like coconut, sunflower seed and olive, so your face feels soft and hydrated, not stripped or irritated.
This rich, cushiony formula softens parched spots and makes skin feel hydrated like a true moisturizer, yet provides enough natural-looking coverage to hide imperfections and even out skin tone.
For a moisturizing foundation that won't break the bank, try this Anti-Aging Award Silver Winner. The sheer to medium coverage formula earned high moisturizing and firming scores in Beauty Lab tests and comes in a wide range of shades.
We were shocked to find that many concealers in our tests were drying, so it's extra notable that this one got high marks for moisturization. It excelled at hiding under-eye circles, while going on smoothly and providing lasting coverage.
Traditional lipsticks can be drying, but these tints make lips feel as moisturized as regular balm, while also imparting dewy color that's not so sheer that it disappears. GH beauty director, April, loves Sugar Nude as an everyday neutral, and Sugar Ruby for a pretty pop.
When it comes to long-lasting lip color, sometimes the best you can hope for is that it doesn't leave your lips more chapped than before you applied it. However, this formula comes with a built-in gloss for extra moisture and packed serious stay-put color in our Lab tests.
Not a fan of long-wear liquid lipsticks? Our Lab testers loved this easy lipstick from Clinque — giving it the highest score for moisturization in our tests.
A good moisturization routine is key to getting your makeup right — no matter how many trends you try.
