I Swear by This Drugstore Moisturizer — And It's Only $5

I've always struggled with dry skin — especially in the winter — and this drugstore moisturizer has saved my skin and become part of my daily routine.

Why I Love Ponds Dry Skin Cream

My battle with dry skin began at a young age, and it felt like I tried everything, from bargain moisturizers to high-priced picks. Finally, I found one that never made my skin feel oily and didn't drain my bank account. Pond's Dry Skin Cream leaves my face feeling cool, hydrated, and soft after every use. I apply it twice a day: once in the morning before applying makeup and again in the evening after I shower and wash my face. I like that it's been tested by dermatologists and doesn't clog my pores, which is why it's become a must-have for my pre-makeup routine.

A little bit of this $5 moisturizer goes a long way. I use my finger to put a small dab on each side of my face, rub it in, and I always feel refreshed afterward. I've had my 6.5-oz. bottle for months and have barely made a dent in the product. After using this moisturizer for over a year I feel more confident in my own skin and find myself using less makeup to cover my imperfections (saving me money, yet again!). If you're looking for a new hydrating cleanser or a cream to help reduce dark spots, I recommend trying Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser and the Dark Spot Correcting Cream — both are effective and super affordable.
