5 Best Moisturizers for Men

This basic skin care step is a necessity for everyone.
October 28, 2022

It’s easy to get caught up in marketing and beauty stereotypes that lead you to assume that moisturizer is only a skin care necessity for women, but men also benefit from using this essential. Like it or not, if you fail to moisturize your skin every day, you run the risk of ending up with dull, dry skin, irritation and may even notice signs of aging developing at a rapid rate. 

We’re not saying you need a 12-step routine but this basic, skin care essential is a must-have for everyone, regardless of gender, skin type, skin tone or anything else. The tricky part is that with so many face moisturizers on the market to choose from, choosing the right one can feel like an extreme sport. Remember, a good moisturizer that works for women can also be a good moisturizer that works for men. Focus on finding one that provides your skin with long-lasting hydration and can protect your complexion from irritation — bonus points if it includes SPF. 

To help you take the guesswork out of finding the best moisturizer for your skin, check out our list of the best face creams for men below.

If you avoid moisturizing because you don’t like the feeling of a heavy cream on your skin, this may be the ideal moisturizer for you. This fragrance-free, water cream contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides to deeply hydrate your complexion, lock in moisture and strengthen the skin barrier. The non-greasy formula quickly absorbs so the skin immediately feels softer and smoother and over time fine lines are visibly replumped.

This hydrating night cream is packed in a fresh-pressed container to deliver an easy and hygienic application every time you do your skin care routine. It contains anti-aging ingredients like retinol to fight signs of aging, such as fine lines and uneven skin texture and niacinamide to brighten, soothe the skin and counteract the potential drying effects of retinol. Additionally, the non-greasy formula quickly absorbs and doesn’t clog pores.

Powered by skin-loving antioxidants and vitamin E, this luxurious moisturizer repairs the skin barrier while you snooze.

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30

No moisturizer round-up is ever complete without a proper SPF. This moisturizer-SPF hybrid contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and pro-retinol to firm, brighten and smooth the skin while offering UV ray protection. If you often forget to apply sunscreen in the morning, this two-in-one product is a great way to make sure you’re covered plus, the pump applicator keeps things hygienic and mess-free.

L’Oréal Paris Wrinkle Expert 35+ Moisturizer

The skin’s natural collagen production begins to slow down once you hit the age of 30. This non-greasy, face cream is a great way to address that and contains collagen to strengthen the skin and minimize visible signs of aging like fine lines, elasticity loss and dryness.
