Cheaper dupe of Stila Face the Day moisturizer
July 6, 2014 1:52 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for a moisturizer to replace the Stila Face the Day moisturizer I've been using. I love it, but at $38 for 50 mL, it's a stretch on my budget.

The ingredients list can be found here
. The ingredients list for the Algenist Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Concentrate, which I got in a free sample and love for similar reasons but which is even more expensive, is here
. For a while I thought the Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum (ingredients here
) was going to be a strong contender, but over time, I found it too heavy and rich for daily use.
What I like about it is the silicone-y way it makes my skin feel soft and hydrated without feeling greasy, and the gently herbal scent. The former is much more important than the latter. I'm 39 and have oily skin that tends towards breakouts, but when I use this moisturizer, my skin stays totally clear. I'm aware that the vast majority of the beauty industry's "scientific claims" are complete bullshit, but I really like the observable effects. Anything out there that has a similar effect on a drugstore budget?
