Cold creams have been a beauty favorite for decades. From your grandmother to even Marilyn Monroe, it's a beauty secret that's passed down from generation to generation. You've probably come across a container of the original Pond's Cold Cream or the classic blue tin of the Nivea Creme. It's gentle and versatile enough to work on a wide range of skin types, including those with acne-prone skin, dry skin, and even sensitive skin. The unique combination of fat and water in cold creams helps to moisturize, soothe, and soften skin, feeling cold to the touch but refreshing when applied. We rounded up the best cold creams that will be staples in your skin-care routine.

Cold creams can be used for a plethora of purposes: moisturizing dry skin, removing makeup, softening rough patches like elbows and knees, soothing sunburns, gently cleansing the skin, and even shaving. If your skin leans on the drier side, a cold cream might be just what you need to condition your skin. The thick cream-based product tends to be more nourishing. Whether it's removing the toughest of waterproof mascaras or soothing inflamed, irritated skin, cold creams can handle it all while being gentle and nourishing. Once you try these soothing, classic creams, you'll never go back. Shop our top picks ahead.
