No matter what type of skin you have — dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, sensitive, or aging (like fine wine, of course) — moisturizer is (or at least, should be) an essential part of your skin care routine. Not all moisturizers are created equal, however. That means there are some mega-rich creams that best suit dry, flaky skin, and others packed with ingredients like tea tree oil to soothe sensitive, blemish-prone skin.

Here, we've rounded up the best skin moisturizers for every skin type, starting as low as $12, so you don't have to splurge to finally achieve a naturally dewy glow... unless you want to, of course.
