BEST MOISTURIZER RANKING
COSRX Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream
This cooling, non-oily Gel is formulated with D-panthenol (Vitamin B5), which helps to moisturize the skin while promoting regeneration and anti-inflammation.
"This gel cream is fast absorbing with just a few taps. Similar to the toner, this leaves a protective film that is non sticky locking in hydration. I think this is a perfect gel cream for the summer months. Since using this whole skincare line, I have noticed my enlarged pores on my cheeks have been gone. I haven't seen anything that has helped me with this issue. It has a gel consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin. It's nice, lightweight, just amazing morning moisturizer! (My skin is dry/acne prone)"
COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream
This All In One Cream contains 92% Snail Mucus Filtrate (Mucin) which revives the skin, leaving you with a glowing, healthier-looking complexion. It effectively nourishes and plumps the skin with nutrient-rich moisture for a supple, even appearance. Snail Mucin replenishes moisture to dry skin while repairing and soothing damaged skin. It develops a glossy veil on the surface to discourage moisture loss via evaporation and restore the skin's natural elasticity. COSRX is a cruelty-free brand that does not test its products on animals. The dermatologist-tested formula is alcohol, parabens, sulfates, and phthalates-free.
"I absolutely LOVE this moisturizer ! Not only is it quickly absorbed but it helps with small red bumps, dryness, excess sebum and overall my combination skin. You really need the tiniest amount of product to see wonders. Now back to my skincare routine and I can't wait to wake up with healthy smooth skin ! I have acne prone skin and a lot of acne scars, and this is good for both of those. After using it at night as my moisturizer, I wake up with brighter and clearer skin. This moisturizer doesn't break me out and it also helps with acne since it has snail secretion. I recommend it for preventing acne and diminishing scars!"
SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age Cream
Inspired by the award-winning microRNA science, the R.N.A. POWER series offers the perfect DNA repair solution for aging skins. Along with the signature PITERA™ ingredient, the RNArchitect Complex enables your skin to get effectively nourished by the nutritious cream and to erase various signs of aging. Vitamin B3 complex and Chlorella Extract strengthen the barrier and to restore the natural firmness. The users have reflected significant improvements in moisturizing ability, smoothness, firmness, elasticity, dullness, and wrinkles. Definitely the best choice for moisturizing with anti-aging concerns.
"Love the texture of this cream. My skin is an oily combination in the summer and dry combination in winter, It's a bit greasy for my skin right now so I use it at night, and for a dime size only, a little more would be too much for me in summer. It has niacinamide at the front of the ingredient list and certainly helps brighten the skin!"
Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream
Reboots the energy inside your skin to be more responsive to the efficacy of your daily skincare regimen. The exceptional ability is provided by Ashitaba, which is named for its regenerative powers.

This cream pleases your other senses with its uplifting fragrance of floral scents of rose and jasmine combined with fruity scents of pear, sweet lime, and orange.
"I don't pay much attention to skin care. This is the first time I have bought facial care products, so I am looking forward to its performance. First of all, I was surprised by the texture of the product. The gel texture can feel cold when applied to the face. Because of the gel, it will not feel greasy or heavy , but feel refreshing. The second is to be surprised at how quickly the product is absorbed. I used a friend’s skin care product before, and it took a long time to absorb it after applying it on my face. This product is different. It dries in about 1 minute after applying the face, and there is no residue of the product on the face."
Dr. Jart+ V7 Toning Light Crème Tonifiante
Get 7 essential vitamins for healthy skin, (i.e., vitamins B3, C, F, K3, B5, E, & H) at once! Dr. Jart+'s V7 Toning Light Crème Tonifiante is a toning cream enriched with natural antioxidants like Lemon fruit oil and anti-inflammatory Macadamia. The infused Multi-Vitamin Complex moisturizes, protects, and brightens the complexion while noticeably blurring pores and imperfections. It also smoothes the makeup application. A potent daily dose of vitamins & antioxidants in a priming moisturizer to replenish & maintain healthy-looking skin.
"The cream really has a brightening effect, it toned & lightened up my skin almost instantly after applying. The cream texture is a little thick but it does not feel heavy on the skin. It is not sticky but sometimes it leaves white marks on my face when my skin is feeling a little dry.. Therefore, I will add one drop of hyaluronic acid to mix it with the cream before applying it on my face to make it more moisturizing. I also noticed a brighter complexion on my bare face after 2 weeks of usage. This product doesn't cause any breakouts or irritations to my skin."
Laneige Water Bank Hydro/Moisture Cream EX
The cream with "EX" is the upgraded version with the addition of Green Mineral Water, a high-enriched product of the extraction of six vegetables in low temperature (15C) seawater, under an exclusive high-tech called Ocean Brew System.

Finally, the incredible antioxidant effect of garden cress that enhances the skin's defensive ability, joins together to deliver you the wonderful moisturizing results in the form of Hydro Cream for oily and combination skin and Moisture Cream for dry skin.
"I love this cream! I’m trying out the Tatcha dewy skin cream because I’m curious about that line overall but I can tell you this is my go to. It’s moisturizing without being oily. Your skin just drinks it up. I love the toner from Laneige as well, the two really work well to provide this hydrated but balanced complexion that I find perfect especially for those with dry skin. I also find the price point great for just about anyone which is my one downfall regarding tatcha. Highly recommend this."
HADATUKO Collagen Enrich Lotion
Apart from self-producing, your skin can obtain collagen from skincare with hydrolyzed collagen, which can be easily absorbed by the skin. HADATUKO's Collagen Enrich Lotion is formulated with hydrolyzed collagen to provide ultimate repair to the damaged skin for radiance and elasticity.

Together this product helps you achieve a healthy complexion with healthy pH value.
Gold Energy Snail Synergy Gold Snail Emulsion
Snail secretion filtrate plus 24k gold, a strange combination, right? You might be discouraged if you imagine putting snail mucus (even though it is just an extract) on your face but also encouraged for the tiny shiny gold flakes infused in the emulsion. In fact, the synergy benefits of both will motivate you to get soaked in the emulsion. Snail secretion filtrate has the humectant, hyaluronic acid to enhance absorption and hydration into your skin, apart from the anti-wrinkle and whitening benefits. The metal, as an antioxidant, helps with skin redness, acne inflammatory, and anti-aging. Both prestige ingredients complete synergy effects and make it the ideal moisturizers for dry skins.

"When I got this one, I used it everyday (morning and night) and after just 1-2 weeks my skin became soft and hydrated already!! I was so amazed with the fast results so I just continued using it. Now, my skin isn't dry anymore! It definitely became my holy grail moisturizer! Whenever I feel that my skin is dry, I immediately apply this one on my face. With just one application, my skin becomes smooth already. It is extremely moisturizing, plus it really smells good!! It absorbs great and leaves skin incredibly soft. I love this, I'm almost done with my second tub!"

If you don't need antiaging or whitening solutions but just a product that emphasizes hydrating and soothing, AHC Premium Hydra B5 Cream would suit you well.

The cream also contains botanical sedatives including aloe vera, portulaca, licorice and peony to soothe and calm sensitive and stressed skin.

"The product comes out a milky white emulsion that looks a little thick. It’s actually lightweight and spreads onto the skin very easily! It looks heavy at first but don’t let that scare you, it’s really not! It’s a hydrating layer that your skin will appreciate before moving onto a cream! I love how it gives the right amount of hydration without being heavy, stick or greasy. Definitely something suitable for morning and in the malaysian humid weather. Pros: Great ingredient list, Hydrating and soothing, Doesn’t feel sticky/greasy/heavy, Absorbs into skin easil, Perfect for humid weather"
