The ideal moisturizer for men must be able to remove excess dirt, sebum, and other environmental impurities. Furthermore, it should also be able to protect your skin from some of the harmful effects of direct sunlight.

Best Moisturizer for Combination Skin

Jack Black products are almost always top-notch, whether you’re talking about their lip balms or shaving creams, they’re one of the best. So it’s only natural that their face moisturizer would follow through as well. This face cream is highly versatile, suitable for application on all kinds of skins — be it oily, dry, scaly, or sensitive.

The ingredients in this moisturizer are completely organic and free from gluten, paraben, fragrance, and any harmful chemicals. It contains blue algae extract which is a strong source of Vitamin E and helps keep the skin soft and smooth. Sea parsley carries both vitamins A & C, which helps reduce inflammation and give the skin a healthy glow. The Rosemary content helps heal scar marks and fights off bacteria. Finally, the phospholipids held in this moisturizer act as a natural binding agent and retain moisture.

All ingredients considered, this moisturizer is ideal for use on combination skin and it never causes any inflammation. It also carries a strong SPF 20 rating, suggesting that it works as an effective sun cream.

Best Moisturizer for Dry Skin

Lab Series Daily Moisture Defense Lotion is the ideal moisturizer for men who are dealing with dry or rough skin. However, if you have an oily skin type or if you are prone to acne, you might want to move on. It doesn’t really exacerbate your acne and inflammation, but it’s not well-suited to help them either.

In addition to being a strong moisturizer, this cream also comes with an SPF 15 rating. While it’s not as capable as the aforementioned Jack Black moisturizer at blocking the sun’s rays, it should be suitable for some light outdoor activities. However, if you are hitting the beach for a long day, you might want to try a moisturizer with an even higher SPF rating.

The primary ingredients in this moisturizer include Octinoxate, Octisalate, and Avobenzone. These are all oil-soluble ingredients that provide protection from the sun and other UVA rays and they also act as a binding agent to preserve moisture.

Best Moisturizer for Oily Skin

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry/Sensitive Skin isn’t the most aesthetically-appealing cream. It doesn’t come in a sleek black-and-white or minimalist package. But it does the job well. The packaging kind of looks like a medical cream and that’s pretty appropriate because it’s often recommended by dermatologists across the globe. This moisturizer has an extremely well-balanced and doctor-approved formula that makes it ideal for people with oily or sensitive skin. If your skin is prone to breakouts, acne, or inflammation, this cream is meant for you.

This cream has been clinically-proven to also provide relief against eczema and give long-lasting relief. It hydrates the skin and gets rid of any itchiness. It has a formula — made of emollients and humectants — that’s designed to attract surrounding moisture to the skin and bind it naturally, preventing its loss.

The formula is extremely smooth and non-comedogenic. As such, it gets absorbed into the skin immediately upon contact. This prevents the pores from being clogged, which, in turn, prevents blackheads.

4. ELEMIS Daily Moisture Boost – Hydrating Day Lotion for Men

RRP: $47.50

ELEMIS Daily Moisture Boost is an extremely lightweight moisturizer. It has the ability to provide dry skin with a healthy glow, hydrate it and retain moisture, and defend it against environmental pollutants.

Men’s skins are naturally rich in collagen, which helps them age better. However, constant shaving can remove up to two layers of skin every day, causing dehydration and irritation. This has the potential to cause dry skin, inflammation, and speed up the aging process. ELEMIS Daily Moisture Boost is meant to be used immediately after shaving in order to soothe any razor burns and replenish the skin.

This cream is packed with natural ingredients like Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera, both of which are rich in essential vitamins E and C, which can retain moisture, protect against free radicals, and provide some protection from the sun.

5. No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturizer SPF15

RRP: $23.50

No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturizer is a hypo-allergenic moisturizer. It is ideally suited for dry or normal skin types, but not really meant for oily or sensitive skin. It is made of light non-allergic ingredients that can keep your skin well hydrated throughout the day by attracting moisture from the atmosphere and trapping it.

The dimethicone ingredient in this formula gives a matte-touch to your skin which can provide a dewy look throughout the day as if you have just stepped out of the shower. In addition to the moisturizing property, this cream also has an SPF 15 rating, which means it can provide protection against some of the harmful rays of the sun and other UVA rays. Like the aforementioned Lab Series Daily Moisture Defense Lotion, SPF 15 is suitable for moderate-exposure to the sun. However, if you’re planning on a beach day, you’ll need at least an SPF 20 rating.

In addition to moisturizing and sun-protection, No7 Men Protect & Perfect Intense Moisturizer also boasts anti-aging properties. So if you want to keep your skin looking fresh, dewy, and young for a long time, this is ideal for you.

RUGGED & DAPPER Face Moisturizer for Men is made entirely of 100% natural and organic ingredients. If you are averse to using chemicals on your face, then this moisturizer is perfect for you. In addition to the lack of chemicals, this moisturizer also doesn’t synthesize any fragrances which can also be harmful, making it completely odor-free and natural.

This moisturizer is stated as being perfect for all skin types. However, you should primarily only use it for dry skin because the presence of certain oils in this cream might not be ideal for oily or sensitive skins.

Some of the ingredients in this cream include Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Jojoba & Shea. All of these ingredients impart minerals, nutrients, and vitamins that your skin needs. Ingredients like Jojoba and Shea also act as natural binding agents, preserving the moisture in your skin while blocking out harmful external pollutants. Other secondary ingredients include Aloe Vera, Green Tea, and Sunflower Oil, all of which further reinforce the cream’s ability to moisturize and heal skin.

In order to use this moisturizer, you should first scrub your face clean so that it has a clean canvas to work on. You should also use a detox product once a week to get rid of harmful impurities in your skin. Finally, you can apply this moisturizer twice a day.

MEET THE BULL DOG Original Moisturizer is an extremely reasonable moisturizer for men with all types of skin — sensitive, inflammatory, dry, oily, etc. This cream doesn’t contain any paraben, synthetic fragrances, or harsh chemicals like sodium larueth sufate. However, this cream isn’t odor-free, it does have the natural scent of green tea since that is the primary ingredient.

The green tea extract also doubles-up as a natural antioxidant, thus keeping out all free radicals and environmental impurities. Other than green tea, it also contains combinations of eight other essential oils, green algae, and vitamin E. These ingredients together provide protection against harmful UV rays of the sun as well, and they can help trap moisture content to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.

Furthermore, MEET THE BULL DOG doesn’t give your skin the greasy shine that some creams do. It is non-comedogenic so it gets immediately absorbed into the skin, which prevents the greasy shine from occurring and it also prevents the pores from getting clogged, which is the number one cause of blackheads.
