Below, we’ve rounded up the best oil-free moisturizers that plump and hydrate skin, leaving it silky, smooth, and—best of all—matte.
Glow Recipe’s signature watermelon extract—an irritation-calming hydrator with loads of vitamins—is at the heart of this mega-lightweight, bouncy moisturizer.
Say bye bye to shine by layering on your daily dose of greens. This oil-free gel moisturizer uses a blend of moisturizing acids and refreshing botanical extracts to give skin a natural glow.
