As of 2015, top-rated moisturizers for dry skin include CeraVe Moisturizing Facial Lotion PM and Cetaphil SPF 15 Facial Moisturizer, according to ConsumerSearch.com. Paula Begoun of PaulasChoice.com and Totalbeauty.com also give these products high ratings.
CeraVe Moisturizing Facial Lotion PM contains hyaluronic acid and other beneficial ingredients for dry skin including emollients and skin-identical ingredients such as niacinamide. This lotion is on the top list of moisturizers at TotalBeauty.com, where members gave it a score of 9.1 out of 10.
Cetaphil SPF 15 Facial Moisturizer is a daytime moisturizer that contains sunscreen. Begoun praises the lotion for including the antioxidant tocopheryl acetate, but says that one negative aspect of the product is that its SPF number is not high enough to be effective sun protection.
