Alright, people -- let's commit to a winter without dry skin battles. However, knowing which moisturizers work best to alleviate dullness, redness and itchiness without exacerbating these common cold-weather skin problems can be tricky.

Slathering heavy lotions onto your face and body seem like a logical solution, but not all dense moisturizers work. So we've spent quite some time testing popular creams to see if they really improve the skin's overall condition.

To keep your skin healthy and glowing throughout the season, here are nine moisturizers we recommend you try. And be sure to follow our winter skincare guide!

For Face
Sephora

For Face
Laneige
Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream, $32, target.com. Even though this cream is on the thicker side, it gets a pass for its ability to absorb into dry skin and keep the face and neck areas hydrated for hours on end.
