Using a moisturizer or facial cream is one of the most crucial steps in our skincare routines. However, finding the right type of cream for your skin concern is most important. For most people—including those with dry skin—heavy or greasy facial creams are the biggest problem. While some of these creams can be hydrating, the sticky and greasy film that they leave on the face makes the skin feel uncomfortable and look dull and oily. Moreover, applying a greasy night cream can also feel quite uncomfortable through the night. In this post, I have compiled a list of the best non-greasy day and night creams available out there. Let’s take a look at what these products are.

It absorbs into the skin right away and feels very lightweight and non-greasy. It’s a great option for daytime wear.
