You can’t beat the price of Olay’s Total Effects moisturizer, especially given all its perks! It’s boosted with vitamins to help protect your skin, and you can find it at almost every drugstore. Here’s another bonus—it’s oil free (so you can forget about clogged pores) and contains a light SPF to further prevent the aging effects of the sun.

So you want anti-aging benefits but you also want to fight acne? Done and Done. Murad’s formula is specifically designed to help fight off breakouts, and it’s pumped with antioxidants to help repair and protect your skin from damage. It’s super light—we’ve even layered it on top of our daily facial oil and it didn’t make us feel greasy or oily at all.

Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream ($62,

There’s a lot of hype behind this anti-aging formula from Kiehl’s. In fact, one container sells every minute! It’s made with jasmine flower extract, which the brand claims is meant to help boost elasticity and that bounce you want in your skin. Recently, the formula was enhanced with SPF 30 for even more protection. We can attest that it smells amazing and absorbs quickly, leaving your skin feeling like silk.

Sublime Defense Anti-Aging Blurring Moisturizer ($75,

We’ve given this formula buzz before for its blurring capabilities, and yes, it falls within the anti-aging formula, too. It’ll leave your skin’s texture feeling smooth and your pores visibly reduced. But what’s more, it’s infused with yeast extract to protect against air pollution, which in turn can lead to premature aging.
