So technically, there are about 13,876 different skin types. (Super precise, we know.) That said, to help streamline the thousands of products available to our shopping-hungry fingertips, the skincare industry likes to lump us all together into more overarching categories—oily, combination, dry, sensitive, and normal. Based on the skin type you most identify with (here’s a handy guide from one of our fave retailers, Dermstore), you can choose your skincare formulas accordingly. Of course, that all sounds peachy keen until you’re faced with 97 pages of face moisturizers while surfing your go-to online beauty retailer.

Sorted by oily, combination, normal, sensitive, and dry, we’ve researched, tried, and scoured the reviews of all of our favorite beauty retailers to ID the best face moisturizers money can buy that will gift you with the bright and healthy result you and your complexion deserve.
