    Facial Moisturizers of 2018

    December 20, 2018

    With winter in full effect, moisturizing is a necessity. Running the heat in your home and the cold air itself are enough to do permanent damage to your skincare regimen. Those living in the apartments for rent in Stamford, CT know firsthand what winter in the Northeast can do to your skin. Luckily, there’s hope.

    Check out the top 10 moisturizers out there.

    1. Amarte Aqua Cream

Their Aqua Cream moisturizer is an excellent choice for those with sensitive and dry skin, and the perfect remedy for beating the dry winter air. This product also contains retinol, which is a dermatologist approved anti-aging ingredient numerous individuals swear by.

    You can find a bottle of this miracle cream on dermstore.com for $93. While it only comes in 1.7 fluid ounce bottle, it lasts a lot longer than you might think. You can get months’ worth of use out of Aqua Cream even when applying it twice a day.

    Magic Cream can be found on violetgrey.com for $100. It offers the same amount of moisturizer as Amarte’s Aqua Cream and lasts equally as long. Given that this product comes in a jar instead of a pump, you can use your own discretion to help stretch out the number of uses in each purchase.
