I used to swear by Clinique moisturizer, then I bought Trader Joe's A Midsummer Night's Cream. On the label it says: Extra Dry Formula Moisturizing Cream pH Balanced, Biodegradable, Unscented Herabal Blend with Aloe. 8 Fl oz for either $1.99 or $2.99, I forget which. A huge bargain either way.

It soaks in nicely, IMO not greasy, gives me protection for quite a while. I use it everywhere. My skin is pretty sensitive but I have no reaction to it.

This is their cream in the pink labeled bottle, which IMO is better than their lotion in their green labeled bottle. The label peels off very nicely, leaving you with a plain white pump bottle. My biggest criticism of it is that the pump doesn't go low enough and a fair amount of cream is left in the bottom to be extracted elsewise.

For $2.99 or so, it sure is worth the risk. They typically have samplers at the check outs as well.

I love Trader Joes.
