Review Highlights: Kate Somerville’s Oil Free Moisturizer is one of the best face moisturizers available. There’s a lot to like about this moisturizer but the main reason to use it is the way it makes your skin look and feel (especially for those of you with oily skin). After using it awhile, my breakouts cleared up and my skin was extra moisturized. I even noticed fine lines starting to soften. It’s a little pricey at $65 but it’s one of the better moisturizers I’ve tried. Read the full review here… or click here to go buy it!

Review Highlights: This moisturizer from Dr. Jart has an odd-sounding name, but it’s a pretty good product overall. At first I was skeptical, because the cream is SO thick. But it didn’t break me out and actually helped with some acne and dry spots I was having. If you’re looking for a good night moisturizer, this one’s a good choice.
