Beauty Boosting Face Moisturizers

Derek Zoolander said it best: "Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty." When it comes to choosing our most beauty-boosting moisturizers, we all fall into two camps: the luxury face cream devotees ("super luxurious and super worth it") and the drugstore squad ("no-fuss moisturizer at a good price point"). Whether you get your moisture fix from Madonna's facialist or CVS, there's a beautifying face cream for every skin type.

This is one of those stereotypical products you see on those French Girl lists, but it really does work.

Ven Effect Anti-Aging Intensive Moisturizer SPF 15

The most impressive thing is walking around with inexplicably summery, dew-drenched skin in the dead of winter. Everyone wants a glistening complexion that belies their apartment's glow-leaching dry air! This ultra-plumping, creamy moisturizer (created by two people who truly know what they're talking about: A female gynecologist and her hormonal wellness specialist sister!) is spiked with phytoestrogen—just quickly, female estrogen production slows starting in our mid twenties, which results in a loss of collagen…aka all the wrinkles and the sagging. Phytoestrogen is plant-derived and bonds with the body's estrogen receptors to boost collagen)and is anyone's greatest trick to looking hot-weather radiant.
