4 Best-Selling Hydrating Moisturizers That You Need To Try - By Rachel Wong

If you’re suffering from dried out skin, check out this month’s featured moisturizers and what Rachel thinks about them. 

Tarte Drink Of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer

This lightweight gel moisturizer has powerful marine antioxidants that help skin defend against everyday aggressors like pollution and sun exposure, while also having skin-balancing properties that help boost firmness, tone and vitality over time.


I love that is absorbed easily and my skin always felt cooler/soothed upon application.


It's also hypoallergenic but I would say it is the richest gel moisturizer I've tried so if your skin is feeling a little clogged, I might not recommend it till your skin is clear. I'd recommend this for dry weather for the perfect amount of hydration.

KIEHL’S Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream


This one promises to give you moisture without the shine and I do agree it has a lot less of a 'glowy' effect compared to the others, which I really like for days when I want my skin to look matte but moisturized.


It is also oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and colorant-free which makes it a great moisturizer for sensitive skin as well. I'd recommend this for anyone with an oily skin type as oily skin really comes from skin that's too dry so you could use this boost to last you through your busy days.

SKIN INC Pure Recovery Dew 


This is already one of my usual favourites for moisturizing in our humid weather : I love that it soothes redness/irritation so I tend to use it when my skin is feeling more sensitive.


The texture (as you can tell from pictures) of this hydrator is different and you can really feel it plump the skin and even out the texture.


Something lightweight like this for everyday use that doesn't feel sticky below makeup and has no added scents or paraben makes me feel like this is a moisturizer every girl should own.

Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Cooling Gel


This cooling gel comes with instructions to warm the gel on your palm before gently pressing it into your skin and when I tried this method, it miraculously became cool again on contact with my skin.


It instantly melts into your skin and this is for sure, the 'coolest' out of the lot. I'd imagine anyone with very dry skin feeling blissed upon application and I like that it also has a matte finish but not without radiance. The only downside is there's a bit of a scent which makes me feel like maybe this is not for those with more sensitive skin.
