With the dizzying amount of options for toners, serums, lotions and potions on the market, a moisturizer is often the least exciting step of any skincare routine. But don't discount the humble moisturizer — it's actually the backdrop for the rest of the show.
A moisturizer has many jobs: treating dryness, replacing water loss, helping your skin stay plump and youthful, preventing skin problems like acne or flaky patches, and strengthening your moisture barrier (the outer layer of your skin that protects against damage from things like pollution or bacteria). Knowing all the roles a moisturizer can play in the health of your skin, finding a good one should become more of a priority, right? Among the many options to choose from, this Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream stands out.
The cold, dry air that many areas of the United States are still experiencing right now can wreck havoc on your skin. Low humidity and lower temps cause moisture to be sucked out of your skin. A cream that can shore up your skin's barrier and prevent as much moisture loss as possible in critical. Sunday Riley's cruelty-free cream contains ceramides, which are fat cells that act as a cement to seal in the "cracks" in your skin to prevent it from becoming dryer when attacked by the elements.
Right now, you can get the Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream on QVC for $57.50 (typically $65). Don't want to pay all in one go? Opt for three EasyPay installments of just $19.17 instead. Plus, if you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can grab an extra $10 off with code SURPRISE.
Ceramides are the big hero for this product, but they combine with other heavy-hitters such as squalane, coconut and hyaluronic acid to really moisturize deeply into the skin. Your skin may show signs of improvement within 15 minutes of application — and remain hydrated up to 24 hours later.
One of the product's most famous fans is Bridgerton actress, Phoebe Dynevor, who uses the moisturizer in her morning routine, saying: "This is key for someone like me who has really dry skin. Bridgerton was challenging because your skin is being put through so much; you're not getting enough sleep, and they're putting makeup on you everyday. It's very intense for your skin," she explains.

This product also has a 4.7 average rating on QVC with hundreds of five star reviews. "I have extremely dry skin, eczema under my eyes and around my mouth, and super dry eyelids — even in the summer. I have tried so many 'ultra moisturizing' creams and serums and none of them were able to get rid of my dry patches, and if they did, they would not provide moisture all day. This calmed my skin in 24 hours and got rid of all the dry patches...If I could buy a 5 gallon tub I would. I can never be without this stuff," said one happy customer.
"I absolutely love ALL Sunday Riley products, but was a bit skeptical about ICE because I was afraid it might be too heavy or greasy— I was completely wrong and completely rewarded! It's non greasy, and skin just drinks it up and it protects my skin from the cold & dryness in the winter air," another commented. If you're wondering how foundation applies on top of such a moisturizing formula, this reviewer shares, "I've got dry skin and am always looking for a moisturizer that addresses my dryness without impacting my make-up application. This product checks all of my boxes."
