You Complete Me: Weleda Skin Food, $19
It's exactly what it’s called—food for my dry skin! I’ve used it for more than ten years and it never disappoints. The aluminum—not plastic!—tube and the fresh smell make it feel very premium. It’s one of those moisturizers where you wonder how it can be so affordable, since it’s way more effective than some $80 creams I have tried. I love applying it as a mask in a thick layer and leaving it on for 15 minutes—nothing makes my skin feel as moist and soft."
