Our editorial team selected the face moisturisers on this list based on both real customer reviews and their own personal experiences with the products. For each category, they carefully selected parameters based on research and identified the products with the highest review score within those parameters.
To determine our best pick for this category, we considered products that are priced at $30 or less.
Our winner was Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Water Gel, which came in with a rating of 4.6 stars across more than 27,500 reviews sourced from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and Google Reviews.

If your parched skin is in need of some TLC, Sand & Sky's Tasmanian Spring Water Hydration Boost Cream is a must-have.
Receiving a whopping 4.9-star rating across more than 150 reviews sourced from MECCA, Adore Beauty and the Sand & Sky site, the super lightweight cream is difficult to fault.
The water-based formula is enriched with essential minerals, helping to deliver long-lasting moisture to the skin while protecting against pollutants and environmental aggressors.
It's also dermatologist approved, cruelty-free and contains two types of hyaluronic acid for more hydrated, radiant skin.
Finding a product that hydrates the skin without breaking it out can be tricky but Sodashi's Balancing Face and Neck Moisturiser does just that.

We compared over 100 face moisturiser brands and based our picks on real customer reviews sourced from popular beauty stores and review sites. We also took into consideration first-hand testing by the Finder reviews team.
The products on this list are chosen by our editorial team and are not selected based on commercial relationships.
The main function of a moisturiser is to increase, improve and strengthen the moisture barrier of your skin.
The top layers of the skin work to keep water, oils and other important nourishing properties inside the bottom layer of the dermis and in your body as a whole. However, certain environmental factors, such as wind and sun, can weaken the skin and cause it to be less effective at keeping the good stuff in.
Flaky or chapped skin is often a sign that your skin's barrier has weakened and the water and oils have dissipated, leaving it broken and cracked. Moisturisers can help to replenish these water and oil levels.
Different moisturisers also offer various additional benefits such as providing SPF, reducing acne and inflammation and reducing oil. It all comes down to which moisturiser you choose.
