Moisturizers Main

A moisturizer is often used as the final step in your skin care routine to not only provide long-term hydration, but also seal in other products you have applied, such as toner, essence, and serum. Regardless of your skin type, it is essential to moisturize, because dry or dehydrated skin can lead to fine lines, dullness, and even acne! However, with so many different moisturizers on the market, it can get confusing. Today, we will explain the different types of moisturizers to help you select the best one for your skin type and needs!

Oil-free Moisturizers

Like their name implies, oil-free moisturizers do not contain oil. As a result, they are best suited for those with oily skin. Contrary to popular belief, oily skin is often caused by an insufficient amount of water in the skin, which leads it to produce more oil and compensate for its lack of hydration. Oil-free moisturizers keep skin well-hydrated without leaving a greasy residue. Our Oil-free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and Oil-free Nightly Hydration moisturizers provide skin with weightless hydration while helping combat excess oil.Combine 1


Lotions are the most common type of moisturizers. They have a tackier texture than gel moisturizers, but are less rich than oils or creams. This type of moisturizer is great for combination skin because they are neither too light nor too heavy and are easily absorbed. Our Clear Complexion Moisturizer is a treatment moisturizer infused with willow bark extract that provides lightweight hydration while helping to clear and prevent breakouts. In addition, our Tsubaki Glotion contains tsubaki (camellia) oil to replenish skin and instantly gives your complexion a soft and subtle glow with its natural mineral blend of light-reflecting pigments.

Gel Moisturizers

Gel moisturizers often have a jelly-like texture and provide skin with refreshing and cooling sensations. Because gel moisturizers are light, they are best suited for individuals with acne-prone skin or those that are concerned about clogged pores. It is also good to use a gel moisturizer if you live in a humid environment. Our cooling Revitalizing Black Hydration Gel, infused with activated charcoal and artichoke leaf extract, provides ultralight hydration while refining skin texture and pores appearance. Furthermore, Sake Balm, our innovative gel-textured “bounce” moisturizer is infused with the finest sake to deliver hydrating and brightening benefits.


Oils deliver moisture deep into the skin. They are especially suitable for people with dry and flaky skin, or those who live in a dry and less humid area. Besides oils, cream moisturizers are also suitable for these types of skin. Our Tsubaki Beauty Oil, infused with tsubaki (camellia) oil, protects skin against free radical damage and prevents pre-mature signs of aging while firming and hydrating.
