    This Drugstore Moisturizer Is Better Than Highlighter

    I've never been this excited about a face lotion in my life.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

    I’m Rachel, and I’m a dewy-skin fanatic. My drug of choice: Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer.

    Until: my beloved Cetaphil.

    And if you don't believe me (which, fine — you don't really know me, I get it), perhaps you'll be swayed by these Amazon reviews that are just as glowing as my Cetaphil-enhanced mug.

    Promising review: "This is my all-time favorite! I've tried many others that cost a lot more, but I always come back to this one. I'm fair-skinned, but I don't burn with this one. It's also moisturizing enough for my combination/dry skin and provides a bit of a glow without leaving the white/chalky residue you can get from other types." —Queen Bee

    Promising review: "I am very fair with red undertones. I actually still get burned with SPF 30. Until this product, all facial SPF products broke my skin out. It goes on fairly easily, and doesn't leave white streaks on my face or show under my makeup. Yea! I recommend it to anyone with sensitive, easily burned skin." —Scott Walnum

    Promising review: "I love this sunscreen! I recently went to the dermatologist and she asked which of the (expensive) products sold at her office I was using. She was impressed with how good my skin looked. I'm not using one of the sunscreens sold at her office — just Cetaphil moisturizer. I have dry skin so maybe that's why this sunscreen works so well for me? I just know this is the best my skin has looked in a long time." —Esil

    I could go on and on about its ideal consistency, but let me drop a lil' anecdote instead.

    Get it from Amazon or Jet for $13.94.
