When it comes to fighting fine lines and wrinkles, nothing beats retinol. This retinol-enhanced cream can't be beat. The rich cream, meant to be worn at night, is hydrating and nongreasy and helps smooth and firm skin.

 


#5 - For Oily / Acne-Prone Skin — Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer Pink Grapefruit

Our favorite acne cleanser is now a moisturizer that softens skin while fighting breakouts with salicylic acid. That means you can go to town on zits—all day long.

#6 - For Dry Skin — Sonia Kashuk Radiant Boost Restorative Facial Oil

The oil not only makes dry skin feel soft and hydrated; it gives a beautiful, subtle dewiness and sheen that you didn't even know you were missing. And the smell and feel of it are awfully luxurious for an inexpensive product.

 


  Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Lotion SPF 15

#7 - For Sensitive Skin — Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Lotion SPF 15

This firming and moisturizing lotion absorbs quickly and won't irritate skin, no matter the weather. The SPF 15 shields skin from incidental UV exposure (but won't suffice if you're out in the summer sun or on the slopes).

 


  Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

#8 - For Brightening — Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

The whisper-light formula is perfect for layering under makeup, leaving skin slightly glow-y on contact. Plus, it contains soy extract, which we recommend for lightening dark spots.

 


#9 - With Sunscreen — Coppertone ClearlySheer Faces for Sunny Days Broad Spectrum SPF 30

The milky-thin formula sinks in fast and doesn't disturb makeup. You won't even notice you're wearing it.
