While the end of February may be drawing near, we all know that that doesn’t signify the end of winter, and if you rely on a furry groundhog to forecast your weather, we have a long road to spring. So, if you’re anything like us, a top-notch, hydrating skincare routine is number one in your winter beauty playbook. From cleansers to oils, here are some of our picks for the best moisturizing skincare products we can’t get enough of.
Cleanser: Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple
A cleanser that can wash away dirt, oil and makeup and moisturize? Sign us up! The secret to Purity’s power is meadowseed oil, a natural oil that lightly hydrates, and a combination of chamomile, sage and carrot that helps renew and sooth the skin. And the lavender scent is so refreshing on a chilly morning.

Mask: Fresh’s Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask
There’s a reason why this mask is one of the best on the market. It really has everything you could ever want: skin-renewing and wrinkle-busting fermented black tea, collagen production-boosting lychee seed extract, firming and lifting polysaccharides and nourishing jicima root juice. Need we say more?

Moisturizer: Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
This moisturizer may feel too light for winter, but its moisturizing benefits are actually extremely powerful. Dubbed a “drink” for your skin, its multitude of ingredients help attract moisture, retain moisture and prevent moisture loss, so basically it’s going to become your skin’s new best friend.

Oil: Marula’s Pure Marula Facial Oil
If the thought putting oil on your face makes you shiver with fear, may we suggest marula oil. It contains a high content of essential fatty acids that allow for quick absorption as well as the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Its antioxidant and omega acids also make it a superbly effective moisturizer that’s comparable to many creams.

Eyes: H2O’s Plus Eye Oasis Instant Hydrating Stick
Yes, even the delicate skin around your eyes can suffer the consequences of winter dryness, which is why this stick is our go-to when we need instant brightening and lift. Its marine-rich algae adds a surge of moisture that helps reduce puffiness and dark circles, too. The best part: it’s in a convenient chubby stick, making it perfect for stashing in a purse for anytime assistance.
