Though the summer season is dwindling down and back-to-school season is coming up, something that never goes out of season is a clean, moisturized face. However, there are so many moisturizers on the market that it can be hard to know which ones are worth your penny, and which should be kicked to the curb. But never fear, we are here to tackle not one, but two of your problems, with the help of none other than actress and activist Busy Philipps!
Busy, who boasts 2.4 million Instagram followers, has created a comprehensive back-to-school shopping list in collaboration with Amazon. Among the many gems, we found your perfect moisturizer that is not only low-cost, but high quality.
This fragrance-free, oil-free, hydrating facial moisturizer not only contains SPF 30, but contains hyaluronic acid to retain your skin's moisture and niacinamide to help calm skin. Use daily as recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Don't just take our word for it though, close to 44,000 Amazon shoppers love this product, and Philipps' endorsement isn't the only reason why it's an Amazon #1 Bestseller — just check out some of these raving reviews!
A summer staple
"After using CeraVe PM moisturizer for years, I decided to try out the AM moisturizer this summer," one reviewer stated. I LOVE how it provides great moisture while giving non-oily sun protection. By incorporating this into my summer morning routine, I no longer have to worry about forgetting to put sunscreen on my face or using a greasy spray sunscreen that breaks out my skin. Will be repurchasing!"
"My husband bought to use every day and really likes it. Perfect for those summer days in Florida," agreed another.
Great for sensitive skin
"Great, oil-free moisturizer with SPF at a very reasonable price. It does not irritate my sensitive skin, but it's made my face noticeably softer. It also absorbs rather quickly so that I can wear foundation over it without feeling too greasy. I've tried more expensive moisturizers, but I much prefer this product and I trust this brand," said one five-star reviewer.
"It ready works on sensitive skin! I have normal-to-dry skin type. I have used this product for the past two years and have tried anywhere from Glossier, to Tatcha, to Farmacy to Oleh henrikson to Khiel’s and Kate Somerville. My skin has felt more moisturized and less flaky since I’ve been using this product. The SPF is a bonus, and it works!" declared another.
For all ages
"I’m in my 50s and I traditionally have been using cosmetic-counter moisturizers. I was looking for something that was not as expensive and would do the same if not a better job, and I found it in this product. I love that it has a sunscreen in it as well....So very happy with my purchase, and I will not be returning to the expense of the cosmetic counter anytime soon," stated a fan.
"I am 60 years old," said another admirer, "and this is the best moisturizer I have found for under my makeup. I can tell a big difference in my facial and neck area. I will continue to buy. I also use the A.M. with SPF."
"My face is always in a battle between being dry and flaky or breaking out. My skin therapist recommended this on the downlow instead of the $80 products her company sells. She says she uses this and loves it. I can see why. It hasn’t caused any breakouts," said another five-star reviewer.
"MANY years ago, a dermatologist recommended this brand and this product, and told me to stop wasting money on expensive moisturizers, declared another fan. "I got hooked on the entire line of CeraVe products after that, and have used them for more than a decade."
