Sephora customers often prefer the following products when searching for face moisturizers for winter.

Winter is a time of year when dryness is a common problem. The good news is that there are many ways to deal with dry skin during the winter months. One of the most popular ways is to use a face moisturizer.


I put up a fight to get my boyfriend to start using a moisturizer but as hes in his early 20s i want him to protect his skin from aging and liven up his complexion during winter. ...I got this for my BF since he has enjoyed the face wash, the SPF lotion, and the serum. I recently noticed that this product has gotten the least amount of use.

What it is:
A lightweight, oil-free, antiaging treatment that improves visible signs of aging.

What it is formulated to do:

The quick-absorbing formula provides intense yet lightweight moisturization with no lingering greasy feel.

Really like the tinted moisturizer. Good coverage. Great for winter when your face is drier from the weather!!!...Great for Winter...I goes on great with a beauty blender and looks amazing but 20 minutes in the heat like over 75 degrees and it just comes right off from sweating even just a little bit.

Lightweight moisturizer that plumps and hydrates...I have combination skin and in the winter, I find using a skin oil helps to combat dryness along with this moisturizer. ...Nice moisturizer!...It absorbs well and dries down a bit more satin-matte than some of my other most-hydrating moisturizers.
