DrJart’s Ceramidin Cream
$48 full size
This is hands down the best cream for dry and cracked skin. Once featured as a sample in a Birchbox, this cream is not only available online at the Birchbox store, but at Sephora. It absorbs directly into the skin, and is more medicating than fragrant. It seals the cracks in the skin, and even plumps your pout when used as a lip balm.
