Here's the Top 5 creams to get you through dry times.
In the spirit of fall, it seems appropriate to talk about moisturizing creams.
Creams are an emulsion containing not just oils, but also water, so it is obviously less greasy, absorbs faster, and can feel lighter than an oil!
Most of these creams are perfect for preparing your face for makeup, since they sink in relatively faster than oils, you don't need to wait that long before applying stuff to your face. Also, because they have more body than oils, you can layer it on thick if you need to without worrying about it dripping everywhere else that isn't your face.
Here are 5 creams that's been chosen by the Koreans. Mind you, the air in Korea is super dry during winter, so you can take their word when they say these creams are highly moisturizing.
