L’Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer Oil-Free Lotion ($26) is THE best drugstore moisturizer I’ve tried to-date. It’s mildly luminescent for skin-brightening and is absorbed instantly. It’s formulated with patented Pro-Xylane, an exclusive L’Oréal molecule seven years in the making that strengthens skin and reignites cell activity layers. Somehow, it manages to walk that fine line between keeping my skin shine-free, yet moisturized with subtle shimmer. I typically have a promiscuous lack of brand loyalty especially in the moisturizer department… but I’ve been rocking L’Oreal Skin Genesis consistently since I busted it out a couple of months ago. The best part is its Space Odyssey 2001-style monolith pump-top packaging. It appeals to my sci-fi side and to my germaphobe side. Genius.
