    25 Tried-And-Tested Holy Grail Products If Your Skin Is Dry AF

    Winter is coming.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite products to treat their dry skin.

    1. Lush's Butterbear, a bath bomb that has a heaping of cocoa butter — and is freakin' cute.

    I've had eczema for my whole life but my skin became even more sensitive as I got older. When my skin is really bad — especially right before and during winter — Lush's Butterbear bath bomb is my lifesaver. It's made with natural ingredients so it doesn't irritate my skin... Plus, it's super cute!


    Get it from Lush for $4.95.

    2. Maybelline Baby Lips, a color balm that doesn't make you sacrifice style for soft lips.

    I get really bad chapped lips in the winter, but this lip balm has really helped keep my lips soft and hydrated. Love it!


    Get it from Target for $4.59.

    3. Trader Joe's Body Butter, which you can pick up on your next grocery run.

    This body butter is the best thing I have ever used. It's super inexpensive and is probably the cheapest beauty product I own. I would recommend it to literally anyone. It's the only moisturizer that calms my flakey, dry, red skin, and it smells awesome.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 if you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby.

    4. Soap & Glory Flake Away, a body scrub to slough off your scale-y skin, and leave you feeling silky-smooth.

    I use Soap & Glory body scrub to exfoliate in the shower. It's worked wonders on the dry spots I regularly get.


    Get the body scrub from Amazon for $18.50.

    5. Nivea, in-shower body moisturizer, which keeps you moisturized for 24 hours without feeling sticky.

    6. Aveeno lotion, a daily moisturizer that heals and prevents dry skin.

    7. Vaseline Lip Therapy, a soothing balm that will save your cracking lips.

    8. Cetaphil, a skin cleanser that won't irritate or dry out your skin.

    9. Palmer's, an oil that both heals and improves the appearance of dry skin.

    10. Cortizone 10, intensive healing lotion that really works for skin with eczema.

    11. CeraVe, a moisturizing cream that won't clog up your pores.,

    I use this moisturizer every night before bed to take care of my dry skin. It’s very thick, and acts more like a mask than a moisturizer. The best part is it will soften your skin quickly without causing breakouts.


    Get it from Amazon for $11.11.

    12. Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Skin Protectant, a healing ointment you can pretty much put anywhere.

    13. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, a moisturizer that manages your combination skin.

    14. Burt's Bees Hand Repair, a set that comes with gloves, hand cream, and cuticle cream for a deep, overnight treatment.

    15. Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa, a body cream that truly delivers the ~spa~ experience with its creamy texture and sweet scent.

    16. Noxcema Deep Cleansing Cream that's gentle enough to use every night and strong enough to wipe off all your makeup.

    17. Lush's King of Skin, a moisturizer bar that soothes irritated skin with shea butter while it softens with banana.

    I carry a bit of this bar in a little tin wherever I go — it's especially handy when I travel to cold countries. It works wonders on my hands, my face, and body.


    Get it from Lush for $15.95.

    18. The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream, which is made with sensitive skin in mind.

    When I'm extra dry, I use this night cream right right before bed.


    Get it from Amazon for $21.

    19. Banana Sleeping Pack, a sleep mask so cute, it almost doesn't matter that it also brightens your skin and smells like bananas.

    20. Bend Soap, an all-natural bar that nourishes your skin with oatmeal, honey, and goat milk.

    21. Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, a mask that hydrates persistently dry skin and repairs skin damage.

    22. Dr.Jart+ Water Drop, a moisturizer that a dermatologist designed to hydrate without feeling sticky.

    23. Lush's Ro's Argan body conditioner, an in-shower moisturizer that is like the dessert of showering, because it's such a treat.

    This body conditioner is legit heaven. I rub it on right after the shower, and leave it on for about 15 minutes. My skin feels hydrated and super soft for the next two weeks.


    Get it from Lush for $35.95.

    24. Renewed Hope In A Jar, a face moisturizer that also protects you from the sun.

    I have dry skin year-round, but Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar (with SPF) has been tremendously helpful.


    Get it from Sephora for $39.
