Things to Look For In a Good Moisturizer

Things to Look For In a Good Moisturizer

Shea butter, coconut butter, designer, and drug store, there are almost too many options to reliably narrow down which moisturizer would be best for you. 

To help out, we’ve compiled some of the most important things to look for in a good moisturizer. If you’re thinking of buying a serum as well, then check out our list of some things to keep in mind when shopping for one!

Remember that everyone’s skin is different, so it might be a combination of these things that’s best for you instead of a moisturizer that has all of them!


Any good moisturizer will have glycerin as one of the active ingredients. Its purpose is to pull in water from the air and draw it into the skin in order to hydrate your skin and give it a youthful, dewy look.

Your moisturizer shouldn’t just make you feel good in the morning; it should sink into your skin and work over the course of the day to keep that feeling going. Drawing water deep into your skin into the lower layers and not just the surface can improve your skin’s overall health, not just its aesthetic appearance.

Glycerin is a humectant, making it an ingredient that’s frequently used in products for mature and aging women. 

If you’re shopping for a moisturizer for specifically anti-aging purposes, then getting one with multiple humectants, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, might be the best choice for you and your skin.

Fièra’s Apple Stem Cell Cream includes both glycerin and hyaluronic acid as well many other healthy, natural ingredients. Our Stem Cell Cream is designed with mature women in mind, so you can be certain that your skin is getting the treatment that it needs and deserves.

Currently, if you buy two Apple Stem Cell Creams, then we’ll give you a third jar completely free! Our products are entirely vegan and cruelty-free, so you can feel as good as your skin will look after consistent usage of our cream!

Go Beyond Moisture

Some moisturizers simply keep your skin soft- and that’s, of course, a necessary feature in any moisturizer. But a luxury moisturizer should go above and beyond only affecting your outward appearance. 

You don’t just want your skin to look better. You want something that makes your skin healthier as well.

Look at it this way: Instead of a moisturizer that covers up any problems below the surface by making the surface level of your skin look nice for a few hours, go for something that really sinks into the lower levels of skin to make you healthier. 

That won’t just improve the look of your skin, but your actual skin itself (and it will look younger and fresher as a byproduct of that genuine health).

For example, scientists have proven that Vitamin E reduces inflammatory responses and improves the appearance of aging skin. That’s why we include Vitamin E in our Apple Stem Cell Cream; it not only reduces inflammation and redness on the face, but gets to the root of the issue by improving your skin’s overall health. 

Unscented and Paraben Free

Because fragrances are so widely varied, you may be allergic to certain scents and not even know about it. Typically, unscented is the way to go, like Fièra’s Apple Stem Cell Cream, because you eliminate that possibility entirely.

You should also avoid any moisturizers that contain parabens.

Parabens are a group of chemicals that were commonly used as preservatives in cosmetics. However, they’ve been linked to a slew of unwanted side effects, including hormone imbalances and issues with reproductive health.

Our Apple Stem Cell Cream contains no parabens and is great for those with sensitive skin because it’s unscented! With a 4.5 star rating and over 400 reviews, our customers love it, and we’re sure you will, too.
