I found 3 exceptional face creams that are just as deeply moisturizing and beauty-inducing without costing you all those pretty pennies.
This classic face cream has been a beauty staple for years, and there’s a reason for that: richly moisturizing and excellent for daily use, it turns tired dry skin into soft and supple radiance. Beauty bloggers swear that this is the Creme de la Mer dupe, minus the algae (and the price tag!).
Weleda Skin Food ($12)
This all-in-one cream deeply nourishes and heals both face and body, leaving you with a head-to-toe luxurious glow. It’s just as heavy as Creme de la Mer – and made with healthy-for-you ingredients, plus it costs about a fourth of the price — so you can apply to your body without the guilt.
This deeply hydrating whipped moisturizing cream wins over critics every time. Winner of the Allure Magazine Beauty Award, it nourishes distressed skin, instantly replenishes moisture, and is strong enough to combat severe skin problems like eczema. Take that, Creme de la Mer!
