Editor Obsessions: Favorite Moisturizers

May Lindstrom Skin, The Youth Dew

Is your skin dying for a little added moisture this season? You’re in luck! Below, our team of editors spills the details on all of their favorite go-to fall-time moisturizers. The best news? Most cost no more than $20, and if you’re looking to splurge, we’ve got you covered in that department, too. Are we missing your own favorite fall moisturizer? Do tell in the comments!

Erin and Taylor both love May Lindstrom Skin, The Youth Dew ($120): “I’m more into serums right now than moisturizing creams. This one is so luxurious and it’s so hydrating.” -Taylor. “I’m all about a beauty oil because it soaks right in, and is the dose of clean moisture my face needs to balance my skin out come cooler weather! I love May Lindstrom’s Youth Dew—it’s a fall essential!” -Erin

Caitlin loves Acure, Night Cream ($17.99): “This changes seasonally for me, but right now my skin is starting to get really dry, so I like something heavier, like Acure’s Night Cream. For everyday, I use Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer. I also love May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon for extra dry skin.”

Abby loves Aveeno, Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer ($10.10): “Aveeno Positively Radiant is my drugstore standby. Since my skin can be dry, dull and sensitive, this is a no-frill moisturizer with SPF that always does the trick!”

Carrie loves Clean & Clear, Advantage Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer ($7.99): “I love how smooth this budget-friendly moisturizer is, and I’m also addicted to the cooling after effects!”

Carly loves Clinique, Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($26): “I have been using this lotion since I was 13 years old, and nothing ever compares to it. It’s the perfect balance of being light and super moisturizing without being too oily on my skin.”

Rikki loves Clean & Clear, Essentials Dual Action Moisturizer ($5.35): “With super thick and creamy moisturizers, I always feel like slathering it on my face is counterintuitive after washing my skin. I love this moisturizer because it is light, sinks into the skin quickly and the menthol is super refreshing in the morning.”

Natalie loves Target, Acure Organics Argan Oil ($12.99): “Organic argan oil! I use the Acure brand since I can just pick it up at Target when I’m running my usual errands, and I’m completely addicted to it. I love the way it leaves my face so soft and that it’s natural and void of weird chemicals. I know it can seem weird to put oil on your skin, but I swear by it!”
