How Many Facial Moisturizers Do You Own?

How Many Facial Moisturizers Do You Own?

I was astonished when I walked into my friend's bathroom to find an entire shelf lined in face creams alone. I counted thirteen in plain sight and another six when I opened up her medicine cabinet. Holy Batman! That's 18 face lotions!

Before I entered the wonderful world of beauty product testing as a career, I had four different face lotions: two for daytime and two for the evening (and no, I'm not including eye creams). How many facial moisturizers do you own?

I have 3 or 4. One is only for emergencies when I can't find the other two and one has SPF and one is pore minimizing.

Two. Mark For Goodness Face SPF30 & Avon Anew Retroactive+ Night Cream. I guess three if you count my eye Benefit eye cream.

I've only just started using SPF moisturizers (yay me!), so that's the only reason I have more than one or two. But I've always lusted after those super-moisturizing night-ish creams (like Creme de la Mer, etc.) - if they could only be a leeeetle less hard on the meager paycheck...

I own about 2, plus SPF sunscreen 30. I own a daily moisturizing lotion because my skin gets dry and a brightening skin cream.

one for the morning with SPF 30 and one for the evening with antioxidents to help protect my skin. I'm thinkning of getting an eye cream.

I have sensitive skin that is prone to redness so I tend to cycle through moisturizers depending on my skin's condition. Eucerin's Redness Relief is pretty good. I have the Body Shop's Vitamin E night cream and day lotion as well as the seaweed cream which is strictly for applying to my face after a shower. But I swear by anything by Garnier. My skin has never looked so good. The Skin Renew lotion is amazing as is the scrub I use in the shower. And its pretty inexpensive.

One moisturizer. Now, if you just went to regular facial products, I have a Neutrogena mask, facial wash, nose pore strips (I'm blackhead prone), Neutrogena On-the-Spot pimple buster, Burt's Bees blemish stick, moisturizer, my eye cream and of course, my Differin. So, that's eight. I'm not sure if I'm keeping the Burt's Bees though.

The ENTIRE Oil of Olay line, L'Occitane - blue jar(1), La Mer (1), Cocoa Butter, Lumene(1), and some others. I rotate them and use them according to what I feel like that day. More than 10, I guess, and I swear by them all!!

Ugh yeah, 24. That's not counting treatment products and eye creams. I used to work for Sephora though. LOL. I've been trying to use them up for a year. I gave a ton of them away to my mom but it's still a problem. My boyfriend thinks it's funny. I can't get enough of Dior Hydraction and Kinerase lotion. LOVE IT!!!! I really want the Skyn Iceland Oxgen Infusing Night Cream now. I bought the kit and love it!

I just have one, L'occitane. When I need to go outside during the day time, I just put on tinted moisturizer with SPF. However, since my skin is combination and sensitive, I have 2 different kinds of cleansers and toners for oily skin days and dry skin days.

I use a cocktail of two face lotions every day: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15 and the alpha-hydroxy version of the same lotion. The alpha-hydroxy one is a bit harsh on its own. I've been doing this for years and I don't even know why. But anyway, the Neutrogena lotion rocks.

"I dont use any. My skin is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY too oily. Even when they say "oil free" or "for oily/acne prone skin", they still make me a mega greaseball." Try a cream that has clay in it. I had the same problem until I discovered these. This is an awesome product (it works best with the toner of the same line)^F1_VIS_MOISTURE^F2_VIS_MOISTURE_Lotion& Or for something less expensive again with the toner, even though it smells not so great, it is a really good moisturizer

Oh yeah and I have a regular day cream that I use sometimes - it's by Marcelle.

I have an SPF 15 one for daily use (Neostrata), a night time one (Garnier Soft), a sample one for travel (Simple Dermo sensitive or something like that) and eye cream (Lush Eye Enhancer). I have a couple more in Canada...a L'oreal one and possibly a Neostrata sunscreen for the face, does that count?

I have 4 lotions/creams for my face. An Alba green tea moisturizer and an Alba eye cream, a Neutrogena one with SPF 30 in it, and Creme de la Mer for night.

None. I have oily skin and even though I buy the ones for my skin type, I still end up very, very oily. I just nix moisturizer and feel fine.
