Women need to use a good facial moisturizer. As part of their nightly routine, moisturizer is applied after removing makeup and washing the face. A good moisturizer will help keep the skin moist and healthy, and it will help prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Due to the important role that moisturizer plays in the beauty regimen, you can find all kinds of moisturizing products on the market. And they greatly range in price, as some claim to be the equivalent of a modern-day fountain of youth.

But do you really need to spend hundreds of dollars on a small bottle of moisturizer? And does spending more money on the product meant that you will definitely get better results? The answer to both of these questions is the same - a resounding no!

The good news is that you do not have to spend a fortune to get a high-quality facial moisturizer. In fact, you can buy a large bottle of it for less than $20. And it will last for many months.

Recommended by numerous dermatologists, one of the best over-the-counter moisturizers out there is Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion (For All Skin Types). This product can be easily found online or on the aisles of your local drugstore, and it is an excellent buy.

Cetaphil's product is one that really works. It is a thick - but non-greasy - lotion that can be applied to the face in the morning and evening. As a moisturizer, it is outstanding. It is truly one of the best at what it claims to do. However, the basic moisturizer does not offer SPF protection, so it is wise to add a layer of lotion or foundation that offers SPF protection when using in the morning.

If you use Cetaphil on a regular basis, as part of your daily routine, you will likely see immediate results. Your skin will feel softer when you apply the lotion. There is no fragrance, which is nice for those who are sensitive to perfumed lotions.

The consistency of the lotion is nice. While thick, it is not too thick. And it feels good when you apply it. You will not feel weighted down. Also, your skin should not break out when using it. Of course, if you have problems with breakouts, it's wise to consult with your dermatologist before using this product, or any moisturizer for that matter.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is a great over-the-counter moisturizer. Give it a try, and you will likely be a fan of it for life. You will wonder how you lived without it.
