We’re here to share what we know — but don’t take it as medical advice. Talk to your medical provider if you have questions.

If your face feels thirsty, this new face moisturizer for dry skin works double duty for deep hydration: Curology’s rich moisturizer. With 6 key ingredients to soften and plump the face, the rich moisturizer not only soothes dry, dehydrated skin, but also contains hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of stubborn signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. With an ultra-creamy texture and a research-backed formula, your skin will stay hydrated — finally — all day (or night) long.

How does it work?

Curology’s dermatologists specially formulated our new rich moisturizer with 6 hydrating ingredients to smooth tiny cracks, add moisture, and keep that moisture locked in.

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our skin, but decreases with age — meaning that adding it back in makes for plump, hydrated, and more youthful-looking skin, while also minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.

Glycerin hydrates, softens, and protects skin.

Aloe glides on the skin to deeply moisturize and soothe.

Shea butter softens skin texture by filling in tiny cracks in the skin — it’s what makes this moisturizer so dang creamy.

Squalane is a natural plant-based antioxidant that fights wrinkle-forming free radicals while maximizing the absorption of your other ingredients.

Allantoin is a powerhouse of reinforcement that forms a barrier on the skin to keep you hydrated and protected.

Last (but not least), all of the ingredients in the rich moisturizer are non-comedogenic, meaning it works even on acne-prone skin. If you’re looking for the best face moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin, give this one a try.

Rich moisturizer — luxury or need?

Anyone who wants to bring out their inner glow can benefit from Curology’s rich moisturizer, but it still might not be right for everyone. The texture of our rich moisturizer is thicker and creamier than the average moisturizer, making it ideal for dry skin and aging skin. And if you have tretinoin in your Curology formula, the rich moisturizer is the perfect addition to your skin routine. While tretinoin helps the skin shed old cells and grow new ones — which is great for anti-aging and acne — it can sometimes mean temporary patches of drier or more sensitive skin. That’s where the deep hydration of the rich moisturizer kicks in.

How does the rich moisturizer fit into your routine?

AM: Apply the rich moisturizer after washing with the cleanser and patting your skin dry. The rich moisturizer is non-pore-clogging, so use the amount that makes your skin feel its best.

PM: Apply the rich moisturizer after applying your Curology customized cream, if you need the extra hydration. Your Curology cream is made with a lightly moisturizing base, but your skin might crave a bit more hydration, especially if you have tretinoin in your formula.

The rich moisturizer is sold as part of our 3-step set, along with the cleanser and your custom formula, all for a total of $79.90 for a 2 month supply. That comes down to just $39.95 per month for dermatologist-recommended skincare customized for your unique skin concerns. We work hard to keep costs low and quality high, because effective skincare shouldn’t have to break the bank.
