Best drugstore moisturizer for dry skin

One of the best affordable moisturizers, No7 HydraLuminous Water Surge Gel Cream, is a cool, refreshing gel–cream that absorbs instantly and delivers an immediate burst of moisture. Infused with antioxidant-rich Vitamins C and E and Pollution Shield Technology, it helps protect skin from external aggressors while keeping skin hydrated for 72 hours.

Best drugstore moisturizer for oily skin

Oily skin often produces excess sebum; however, that doesn’t equate to effective skin hydration.

Formulated with No7’s unique anti-wrinkle, firming and brightening complexes, it helps to nourish the skin. After 1 week, the face and neck look more radiant and feel firmer*.
