After a long day of bearing the cold during winter months, coming home and hydrating your skin to retain moisture is crucial.

Second to washing your face, investing in a really well-versed moisturizer is a key. Our current favorite is Drunk Elephant's Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer which is perfect for all skin types -- from oily to dry to combination.

This $68 beauty product doesn't come cheap, but the incredible formula does everything it promises. From reversing sun damage to reducing the appearance of fine-lines and improving the skin's texture, this moisturizer is packed with amino acids and soybean folic acid ferment extract. It's basically a shot of protein for your skin. [Editor's Note: I've been using Protini Polypeptide for two years and it has become my favorite moisturizer on the market!]

Drunk Elephant's entire line of skincare is totally free from sulfates, parabens and formaldehydes. It's also gluten free and vegan.

Don't just take it from me! The cult-favorite moisturizer has racked up over 3,000 reviews on Sephora.

One reviewer wrote,"The best moisturizer I’ve ever used, by far. It pains me every time I reorder it because of the cost, but I’ve gone through dozens of moisturizers in the past trying to find the right product, and this is the only one I’ll spend this kind of money on. I have combo skin, prone to breakouts, with oily T-zone but dry around my eyes - and this perfectly moisturizes my skin but doesn’t make me greasy. I’ll never go back!"

"I have been using it nightly for about a month and I now don't think I'll be able to go without it! I'm in my mid thirties and my biggest skincare concerns are that my skin is chronically dry but also sensitive. I have a tendency to get crusty patches throughout my T-zone, especially between my brows. This combined with the DE night serum has really transformed my face. My skin looks and feels plump and hydrated," another person said.
