It’s summer, time to put away your heavy moisturizer and break out the oil-free, light-weight version! But with all the great moisturizers for summer on the market, how will you know what to try, and what to pass up? I can help! Here are my picks for the best summer moisturizers.

1 Philosophy Hope in a Jar with SPF

This is a fantastic grease-free summer moisturizer, one with the added bonus of a built-in broad-spectrum sun protectant. It also helps fight the signs of aging (like wrinkles and fine lines) and it’s formulated without sulfates and petrochemicals… what more could a girl ask for?

2 Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

If your skin tends to be acne prone, get the hydration you need without clogging your pores, and help clear up and prevent outbreaks with this moisturizer! It contains salicylic acid, proven to treat and prevent acne, but it also provides just the right amount of moisture for tired, thirsty skin.

3 Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily MoisturizerPrice: $16.79 at
This is another daily moisturizer made for summer skin, also containing acne-fighting salicylic acid. It’s a little more gentle than the Clean & Clear version, and it’s made with soy, which is good for all of us natural beauties.

4 Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion with SPF 30
