In the last four or five months, I've been mixing my diy oil blend with my moisturizer. I just put both in my palm and rub together and pressed the product onto my skin.  It's been working beautifully. At night, I add three drops of the oil and in the morning only two drops. 

I don't recall feeling that tightness or dryness of my skin since using oils on my skin.  And, there are weekends that I forget to put on moisturizer/oil and my skin still feels nice and hydrated throughout the day.

Good luck, Lara!  I hope you find your moisturizer soon!!

I'm not sure if these skincare products have hyaluronic acid, but they are recommended on a doctor's site, so maybe they are worth checking out.

In doing my online research I came across this facial moisturizer called DML Facial Moisturizer. It is sold through online through I think I will compare its ingredients to CeraVe. I think the two are comparable in price.

My biggest problem is that my face gets really dry in the winter because of inside heat despite having a whole house humidifier and walking outside in the cold several times a day with the dog. My cheeks and under eye area are the driest parts of my face and I really need hydration more than I need antiaging stuff.

I really like what I am reading about oils, but don't know if they will help keep my skin hydrated.

Why is this harder than finding a new foundation?

Just in case you are still searching, may I suggest you look at what I use, Monsia Skincare. The day & night moisturizers both have hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid listed in the ingredients. The other thing I do during the winters in the UK is to apply a couple of drops of vit E oil on top of the moisturizer to keep my skin hydrated. Sorry I missed your post until today!!!

I personally love CeraVe as well. But I top it up with facial oils at night.
Some of my fav facial oils: rose hip oil, sweet almond oil and sea buckthorn berry oil.

I am planning to try pomegranate seed oil next. I read that it contains very high concentrations of antioxidants.

Since I've been on a Curology(used to be PocketDerm)Rx for a little over a couple of years, what I've found extremely helpful over the CeraVe PM(which I wear over the Rx)is Aquaphor Healing Ointment. It seals everything in, and really helps one tolerate Rx retinoids, which I never thought I would be able to do until starting off slowly with those at low strength, and using the Aquaphor. Oils by themselves don't help me(believe I tried in the past), my skin needs HYDRATION in addition to lubrication, thus I do better with a couple or layers of different, but still bland stuff surrounding my Rx. Still loving CeraVe overall with the three products that I use. Another promising one in their line-up is their newer Healing Ointment which is a bit lighter than Aquaphor - it makes a GREAT eye cream by the way - far better than their eye cream per se(which irritated and dried my eye area out within 2 days of use).
