Derek Zoolander said it best: "Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty." When it comes to choosing our most beauty-boosting moisturizers, ELLE editors fall into two camps: the luxury face cream devotees ("super luxurious and super worth it") and the drugstore squad ("no-fuss moisturizer at a good price point"). Whether you get your moisture fix from a fancy cult-favorite or CVS, there's a beautifying face cream for every skin type. Below, shop 11 ELLE Editor-approved face moisturizers to keep you looking like the international model you are.

"I've been dabbling here and there with adding Korean skin products to my skincare regimen. What I love about this moisturizer is not only does it keep my skin from drying out but it contains a bit of retinol, that anti-aging miracle worker my dermatologist swears by. I've incorporated this moisturizer seamlessly into my daily routine and my sensitive skin had no issue with it. It's pricy but a really great product that has lasted me for months—even with my twice-daily use."
