Conventional wisdom has long been that petroleum-based moisturizers were the ultimate in hydration—and it’s true, the occlusive barrier they create does hold in moisture.

L’Oréal’s new Age Perfect Glow Renewal Day/Night cream ($25, drugstores), for example, uses royal jelly, jasmine and soy to soothe skin and trigger collagen production, and the camellia-leaf-based Avon Elements Moisture Boost Daily Moisture cream ($9, leaves skin smoother, more luminous and decidedly fresh.
