The idea behind moisturizer is pretty simple. Just slather it on and go about your day, right? Well, for the most part, yes—but the wrong formula can throw your entire routine out of whack. Choose one that’s too heavy and you risk a breakout. Choose one that’s too thin and it’ll leave your skin dry and flaky.

So, here’s our two cents’ worth. To find the moisturizer for you, always go back to what should be the basis of all your beauty choices: your skin type! Ahead, our no-fail formulas for every complexion.
