The 15 Best Face Moisturizers to Save Your Dry Skin This Winter
Dealing with dry skin this winter? We're here to help. Below, our beauty editor rounded up 15 tried-and-true facial moisturizers and night creams, from luxury splurges (hello, silver-infused cream!) to budget-friendly drugstore buys (because you simply can't go wrong with CeraVe). Pick your fave, and slather up!
The Best High-End, Luxury Face Moisturizers for Dry Skin
Got some extra change in your pocket? Skincare is worth the splurge. Sunday Riley and Dr. Jart+ use ceramides to support the skin’s natural moisture barrier, while Argentum Apothecary (the splurgiest of splurges) uses a patented fusion of Silver Hydrosol and DNA HP to regulate skin and promote collagen production.
The Best Budget-Friendly, Drugstore Face Moisturizers for Dry Skin
Yes, it’s possible to find solid skincare options at the drugstore, too. Dermatologists consistently recommend CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (formulated with ceramides and hyaluronic acid), La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 (a multi-purpose cream with panthenol and shea butter), and Simple Replenishing Rich Facial Moisturizer (said to lock in hydration for 24 hours).
The Best Night Creams for Dry Skin
Designed to work its magic while you sleep, a night cream is essential for soothing dry skin. Jao Brand’s night cream works especially well for aging skin, with plant-based compounds and oils that restore healthy pH levels and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Eve Lom’s Time Retreat can actually be used on all skin types, but dry skin will appreciate its moisturizing squalane and repairing wild indigo seed extract. For those with dry and sensitive skin, Omorovicza’s Rejuvenating Night Cream is a must-try—it uses Hungarian thermal water, carrot oil, and hazelnut peptide to replenish skin, and the formula is certified clean (without sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrances, and other harmful ingredients).

The Best Korean Face Moisturizers for Dry Skin
There’s a reason everyone’s obsessed with K-beauty—it really works. Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho has said that Koreans have a skin-first philosophy, seeing skincare as an investment in overall well-being. That’s certainly the case for these moisturizers from COSRX, Klairs, and SMD Cosmetics, which provide both immediate hydration and long-term repair by strengthening the skin barrier and protecting from free radicals.
