Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I have dry skin, particularly on my forehead, and especially near my eyebrows and that area. I'm on a budget and I'm looking for a good, cheap moisturizer.I really hate spending over $10 on a moisturizer. My favorite places to shop are drugstores, walmart kmart etc.

I really like Olay Complete. It's a good basic moisturizer. I think it's like 6 or 7 bucks but I don't remember exactly.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I recommend Complex 15:

Buy Complex 15 Therapeutic Moisturizing Face Cream Online at drugstore.com

That's the facial lotion, smaller amount than the one in the link below:

Buy Complex 15 Therapeutic Moisturizing Lotion Online at drugstore.com

I've used both and the creme is no different than the lotion-- it's not thicker, richer, etc. IMO, it's the same and the latter is quite affordable, great for dry skin and fragrance-free (great for sensitive skin).

If you would like to add a "peel" or "AHA-type" product to your routine that is very, very affordable and effective, I recommend Lac-Hydrin:

Buy Lac-hydrin Five Moisturizing Lotion Online at drugstore.com

This goes well under the Complex 15.

If you aren't opposed to spending $13 + tax on a moisturizer, the best one, hands down, IMO is emu oil and I LOVE Lure Beauty's version of it:

You might want to read what they have to say about it and then google "emu oil". The stuff is amazing!

Hope this helps!

Warmly,

Brandi

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

Alot of times the Dollar Stores have brand name moisturizers cheaper too. It's all in your taste. Some people like to spend big money on skincare and others are economical.

My Pharmacist recommends applying a very thin layer of Vaseline on the skin, just after it has been washed.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

Nivea soft, it comes in a white tube or a pot. it's moisturizing but it won't take too much time to be absorbed contrary to the blue version.
shea butter, you can easily get a cheap one at an indian store or an african store, just get it unrefined and heat it between your fingers. vaseline.

I'm using Olay complete for sensitive skin right now, and I actually like it a lot. It's lightweight, has vitamin E, SPF15, and non-comedogenic.
I got it from walmart for like $8 something for 6 fl oz. They have a smaller size for like $6.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

Olay Complete is the best

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I've found Olay Complete to be one of the cheapest and the best out there for under 10 bucks, plus they've got everything: for dry skin, oily, combination, spf....

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I love Dove's moisterizer! Right now I'm using Clean and Clear and it's pretty good. Both are under $10 but over $5!

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

There is a new line at drugstores everywhere called BeFine "food skin care." BeFine's packaging caught my eye and I picked up two of their products:
1. Daily Moisturizer with Rosemary, Pomegranate & Rice
2. Night Cream with Cocoa, Millet & Rice Bran
I really like the way that both of them feel on my skin. I do believe that they were more than $10, but compared to regular skin care, the price is minimal! I would highly recommend checking this line out.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

cetaphil for day and Vaseline at night are the best for me!!! I personally do not find olay products moisturizing enough for me.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

If you're willing to take a chance on internet shopping, check out woodwize.com Angel Cream - it's 5$ per jar, and has shea butter, hempseed oil, and lots of other goodies. Gentle enough for face, and works as an all-over body moisturiser, too.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

Well I have the same problem as you, alipic (skin without natural sebum), dry and I use NIVEA. They have a special nourishing cream with SPF 8. It's really good.

Pond's Dry Skin Cream...

wonderful

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I used to use cetaphil cream now I just used the cleanser when I shower...
I would put the cream on every night before I sleep, but in the morning when i put my make up on my skin is still dry and flakey.. even after I use a primer. Now I use BIO OIL.. and I love it.. it's for stretch marks, scars and even skin tones. I wash my face and put it on before I sleep.. keeps my face feeling soft. It might be a couple $$ over your budget but I think it's worth it because not only does it keep the flakey skin away but it tones it too !! you only need a couple of drops.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I agree. Dove Dry skin cream is about $7 and it lasts a long time. Its great for cold weather season

I always use drugstore products when it comes to skincare....I can't afford high end stuff, and even if I could....I still probably wouldn't.....
2nd the olay complete for sensitive skin. That's what I use as well.

I also use the Cetaphil but not regularly.

I've tried many different moisturizers (high end and low end) and I don't see any major difference in my skin. So, I decided to use the drugstore brands. My skin is so sensitive, I just have to be careful what I put on my face.

Re: Need an affordable facial moisturizer!

I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Visibly Even Daily SPF 15 Moisturizer. It's about $15 and can be bought from drugstore.

Wow so many recommendations for Olay Complete moisturizer! Look like this will be on my shopping list once I run out of my Neutrogena moisturizer.
