Seriously, whatever preconceived notions you might have, natural moisturizers really, really work (yes, just as well as the conventional kinds).

Convinced? Skeptical? Welp, get on board. Ahead, the 13 best natural moisturizers for every skin single type and concern that’ll turn you into a convert ASAP.

Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Dry Skin
Doctor Rogers Restore Face Cream
Developed by Seattle dermatologist Heather Rogers, MD, this face cream is made with all-natural ingredients (like shea butter, centella asiatica, and squalane) to help moisturize the hell out of dry, flaky skin. I use it in the winter in both the a.m. and p.m. and as my night cream in the summer, and I swear to you my face always looks and feels baby soft as a result.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
Peet Rivko Daily Moisturizer
Made with just a few, simple plant-based ingredients, this natural face moisturizer is a solid choice for anyone with sensitive skin. The super-gentle lotion contains moisturizing ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter, but zero fragrance, essential oils, or limonene—all potential skin irritants commonly found in other natural and conventional products.
Best Oil-Free Natural Face Moisturizer
Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer
If you’re in the market for a new oil-free face moisturizer, look no further than this natural option from Farmacy. The lightweight gel cream is packed with four types of hydrating hyaluronic acid along with exfoliating papaya extract to give your skin a dewy glow that doesn’t look the slightest bit greasy.
Best Natural CBD Face Moisturizer
Lord Jones Acid Mantle Repair Moisturizer
This natural face moisturizer is actually amazing for anyone with compromised or weakened skin. It’s loaded with hemp-derived CBD to soothe the skin, plus ceramides and fatty acids to promote strong barrier function (a must for healthy skin) and help skin stay soft and hydrated when exposed to environmental aggressors, like weather or pollution.
Best Soothing Natural Face Moisturizer
Pai Skincare Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream
Finally, a natural face moisturizer that’s designed with not just sensitive skin in mind, but redness-prone skin too. The ultra-soothing lotion is made with calming and cooling chamomile extract and anti-inflammatory rosehip oil to take down redness and prevent further skin irritation. P.S. this is also a really great option for anyone dealing with rosacea or eczema too.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Oily Skin
Base Butter Radiate Face Jelly
This natural face moisturizer has a gel texture that won’t feel sticky or greasy on your face (ideal if your skin is on the oily side). Plus, it’s infused with lavender extract, which helps balance skin’s oil production, and antibacterial tea tree oil to keep pores nice and clean.
Best Drugstore Natural Face Moisturizer
Burt’s Bees Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream
Whenever friends ask me about natural and organic skincare brands that they can get at the drugstore, I always recommend Burt’s Bees. Everything in its line is efficacious and affordable—including this natural face moisturizer. The lightweight lotion contains a mix of soothing aloe, rice, and cotton extracts to instantly calm and hydrate sensitive skin.
Best Cult-Favorite Natural Face Moisturizer
Weleda Skin Food Light
Tons of people recommend the OG Skin Food as a natural moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin, but IMO, it’s waaay too thick and greasy to use on your face. Instead, go with this lighter version. It’s just as moisturizing and soothing (thanks to calming plant extracts like chamomile and calendula) but absorbs quickly into your skin without leaving behind any residue.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Combination Skin
Youth to the People Superfood Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer
Don’t be fooled by this natural face moisturizer’s fluffy, light-as-air texture—it’s actually insanely hydrating. Inside the jar: a moisturizing combo of all-natural and organic superfoods, like kale, spinach, and green tea, and hyaluronic acid (a humectant that draws moisture to the skin).
Best Natural Face Moisturizer With SPF
Naturally Serious Mineral Sun Defense Moisturizer
PSA: Daily sunscreen is a nonnegotiable step in your skincare routine, and this natural face moisturizer with SPF 30 makes it easy to get your daily dose. The sheer, tinted lotion is infused with all-natural moisturizers like squalane, vitamin E, and argan oil along with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin
Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer
Try this natural face moisturizer if you’re dealing with blackheads, whiteheads, or angry cysts. It’s made with a blend of clarifying minerals (like copper, zinc, and magnesium) to reduce inflammation and prevent dead skin cells and excess oil from clogging your pores.
Best Natural Face Moisturizer for Dull Skin
Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Overnight Cream
The hero in this 95 percent natural face moisturizer? Glow-boosting glycolic acid. The exfoliating ingredient encourages skin cell turnover, which helps fade dark spots and reduce the look of lines and rough texture. Apply a dollop before bed and wake up to brighter, smoother skin in the morning.
Best Anti-Aging Natural Face Moisturizer
Beautycounter Countertime Antioxidant Soft Cream
This anti-aging natural face moisturizer plumps and firms skin with plant-based bakuchiol and Swiss alpine rose. When combined, the two ingredients basically create an all-natural alternative to retinol that really does smooth lines and firm your skin—without the irritating and potentially harmful side effects typical of synthetic retinol.
