14 Best Natural Facial Moisturizers: EWG Rated & Human Reviewed

Cancer anyone?

Yeah, I didn't think so. If you're in search of a most excellent facial moisturizer that won't throw your hormones out of whack, give you cancer or a myriad of other horrific ailments (and who wouldn't be??) this list is for you. What we put on our skin soaks right into our bodies, into our blood streams and filters through our organs. Eew!

But you probably already know all that, because you're a smarty. I can tell that about you. It's what brought you here in hopes of finding a super awesome facial moisturizer that will make you look like thebomb.com without all the scary ingredients found in mainstream moisturizers. 

What the?! You mean I can have "bomb dot com" skin AND not get cancer? Why yes. Yes you can, and this is the guide of all guides that will get your there. Rated stellar by both EWG and your human counterparts (that means people who use these products). So why are you still reading this? Go to Blissful Miss already and find your new favorite moisturizer!

EWG

The moisturizers on this Blissful Miss Guide begin with The Environmental Working Group (EWG), which rates products according to their nasty effects to the body. They are given a rating of 1 through 10, with 1 being the safest and 10 the most to toxically nasty. The moisturizers in this list are all rated 1.

If you've been to EWG to find a safe product you know it can be like crazy overwhelming. To date a search for "moisturizers" yields 428 products. So how does one sift through them all to find the most super awesome ones? They're all safe, but will they make you look like thebomb.com? Like, how well do they actually moisturize, reduce those pesky fine lines, even out skin tone, or clear up zits, eczema and rosacea? And which ones are for your skin type?

Amazon Reviews

To narrow down the list and find the "moisturizing cream of the crop" (pun intended), moisturizers were cross-referenced with those sold on Amazon with a killer rating of 4 stars or higher. 

Sensitive Skin

If you have finicky skin, you are in luck. (Well, finicky skin sucks for you, but you're in the right place to find a product that won't cause break outs.) Because all these products have natural ingredients, chances are high that any one of them will work wonders for your sensitive skin. YESSS! 

Several of of these moisturizers have reviews from finicky skin people like you who gush about how well it product worked. HOWEVER, there is also a section dedicated to you sensitive skin folk, including those with eczema, rosacea or other skin conditions. 

Day Time Moisture

While you can certainly use any of these moisturizers day and night, if you'd like one specifically formulated for night time moisturizing and repair, check out the Blissful Miss List of Best Natural Night Creams.

Disclaimer

The safety of products suggested by Blissful Miss is based on the Environmental Working Group rating system. This is not to say that every ingredient in and of itself is considered 1000% safe, but combined with several other non-toxic ingredients that product receives a high rating by EWG. Any product on this list can be researched on the EWG Skin Deep Database for specific details of how each ingredient is rated and what the known concerns are, if any.

SanRe Organic Skinfood Siesta Sunset is a lavish cream with avocado oil and sea-buckthorn oil. It helps restore, smooth and deeply hydrate mature to dry skin without clogging up sensitive pores. Don't you just love how skin care companies refer to "old and sagging" skin as "mature"! Well apparently this cream firms and nourishes ... so your skin can start acting all "immature". Haha!

Review Quote

"I have dry skin and so far this is the only cream that works for me. It lasts long, you don't need to use much because of the rich consistency. :) Love it!"

Wrinkles are starting appear, but since I starting using this product, me face is looking great. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and not dry.

Have you ever tried an oil based moisturizer? Annmarie Gianni Anti-Aging is a great one for dry skin. If you're thinking it will leave you feeling slimy, think again. Reviewers love how their skin feels and looks. Got acne? At least one reviewers saw noticeable improvement there as well.

Review Quotes

I love Annmarie's skin care products! The anti-aging facial oil is gentle and within a week I noticed a difference with my complexion ... you need to apply a very small amount. It smells wonderful. And some of my wrinkles seem to be gone!

I love this product! You would think an oil on the face would be "greasy". Not so!! In fact I have noticed that my blackheads have diminished considerably after one month use of this product!

I get constant compliments on my skin and find this to be the absolute best product I have ever used on it.

Great oil. People actually come up and comment out of the blue on my skin after I've used it for a few days. It's like a commercial.

Block Island Organics combines anti-aging sun protection with a great moisturizer ... without the icky sunblock feel. No white film here, and it actually moisturizes. Dry skin folks particularly dig it. One reviewer with acne prone skin worried she'd break out, but didn't. Protect your skin from wrinkles, sun spots and skin cancer with this super awesome moisturizer. (P.S. If you want SPF with a tinted moisturizer, scroll down to the next product.)

Review Quotes

Excellent, natural sunscreen that you can actually Feel making your skin happy. I have sensitive dry skin that is prone to sunspots and have tried so many supposed organic sunscreen moisturizers, but nothing felt right- until now! Spreads easily, has a mattifying effect vs a shine, doesn't take effort to wash off and actually performs!

I'm really happy with this product - it's now my go to everyday face product. Not only does it moisturize, but I like that I'm also getting my daily sunscreen without the chemicals. I saw some reviews about it being heavy - my advice don't use too much and it'll be fine. Also it doesn't make you look white which you can get with a lot of natural sunscreens, it goes on clear.

I recently started using this daily sunscreen moisturizer. I had not been using a daily sunscreen because other brands I have used smell like sunscreen and this makes me stop wearing it. The Block Island sunscreen has a great feel on my face, is not greasy at all, and has very little odor. Love it!

What’s a CC cream? I'm glad you asked! It’s an all-in-one moisturizer, skin firmer, wrinkle reducer, color corrector and a whole slew of other things. Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream offers five color tints to choose from, so your complexion is evened out every time you apply it. Pretty cool, eh?

Review Quotes

LOVE LOVE LOVE ... I have never been happier with my skin and have actually been told I look much younger than my age since using it!

The first time I put it on, my skin felt very soft ... I'm 65 years old and have very sensitive, dry skin. This product hasn't bothered my skin at all. In fact, I feel it's made it softer. It is definitely not a full coverage foundation but that's not what I was looking for. I do feel it gives a very natural coverage. Definitely would recommend.

It's not heavy, but it evens out skin tone and gives an awesome glow. Those fine lines around my mouth and on my forehead are barely visible now.

  • EWG Rating - 1

Dessert Essence Daily Essential Moisturizer is fortified with Jojoba Oil and Aloe Vera to soothe to restore and maintain the soft feel you love in your skin. The essential oil of flowering Geraniums adds a pleasing, natural fragrance. Reviewers love the non-greasy feel and, well, the crazy awesome price.

Review Quotes

"Love this stuff. It is so creamy and non-greasy. Perfect for my sensitive, combination skin."

"This is the greatest moisturizer! I've used it for the past 5 years. Many people spend a great deal of money on moisturizers. I was one of those people until I found this product. It's wonderful and it doesn't break the bank. I would highly recommend it to anyone."

"Love This product. Cheap. Doesn't clog my pores and I have VERY acne prone skin. The slightest thing will break me out. This leaves me looking smooth, like I'm wearing base almost. It's not oily and doesn't leave that oily look because I have oily skin too and most moisturizers leave me looking like a grease monkey!"

  • EWG Rating - 1

Herbal Choice Mari Facial SPF Day Cream includes a bit of sun protection, which can help ward off signs of aging.

Review Quotes

"Best. Moisturizer. Ever."

"This is the perfect day cream if you are looking for a moisturizing and healthy day cream WITH SPF!"

Are you a dude? Because dudes LOVE this stuff. Cremo Face Moistuirizer is marketed to men, is particularly great for after shave moisture, but it works great for women as well.

The bottle label reads: Try it once to believe it - Enjoy it for life - It's really that good. So Cremo is pretty impressed with themselves. Reviewers are too. How about you?

Review Quotes

I really like this product. It takes very little to moisturize my entire face and neck, and leaves NO greasy feeling. Unlike some moisturizers for men, people can't even tell that you have moisturizer on your face. Yet it keeps my skin feeling hydrated even after several hours. A little goes a long way. Get it!

Well it is certainly one of the best face moisturizers I have used and I have tried many. No fragrance. No shiny oiliness. No breakouts. Perfect post shave. I have been using now for over a year.

Way better than the girly stuff I have used. Goes on easily, disappears right away, no oily feel or other residue. Goes a long way, lasts a long time. Nice and cool going on, then you forget about it. I think the Cremo people know what they are doing as their shaving cream is excellent as well. I think women would like this despite it not being an overpriced boutique item promoted by celebrity doctors and celebrity celebrities.


Intolerant & Sensitive Skin

If you have particularly Sensitive Skin, and/or suffer from Eczema, Rosacea or other skin conditions,

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Fluid for combination to oily skin uses detoxifying Thermal Spring Water to instantly moisturize and soothe feelings of heat and irritation, providing long-lasting hydration. Several reviewers with Eczema and Rosacea have had great success with this cream.

Review Quotes

"I recently gave Toleriane Fluid to a friend who suffers from redness and burning sensations as well as occasional adult acne.  . . . A minor miracle happened - her face not only tolerated the cream but she called me a few weeks later and told me that the Fluid had made her skin calm down and the red flareups were all but gone."

"This is literally the only moisturizer I have ever found (and I've tried a LOT of products!) that works for my sensitive, combination, fussy skin! It's awesome! It's light and it moisturizes just enough."

"I used to use Clinique products because they were supposed to be hypoallergenic, well I learned that's not the whole truth. My face cleared up immensely after switching to this face lotion."


  • Soothes Intolerant Skin
  • Skin Types: Normal to Combination, Sensitive
  • EWG Rating - 1

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing Protective Skincare Lotion for normal to combination skin soothes the pulling, stinging and burning sensation specific to intolerant skin. Ahhh ... !  

Quickly relieves redness caused by inflammation, sun, allergic reactions, etc., and is a most excellent cream for eczema and rosacea sufferers.

Review Quotes

"I had a small keloid at the side of my face and within 1 week of using the Toleraine lotion and the Rosalaic cream it was gone! Love this product! It never feels heavy. It is great for sensitive skin and you will be glad you bought it!"

"Dry spots, acne, flakes - all of that was happening at the same time, my skin specialist suggested stopping the use of all products and getting the pH balance back - she recommended the Soothing skincare lotion and the Foaming cleanser from Toleriane. Its 2 years later and have not had an issue since. I don't let any other product come to my face after discovering this. Wonderful for the sensitive skin types."

"I have had severe acne off and on for 20 years and have tried numerous types of creams, lotions, moisturizers for my skin which is very sensitive and combination type of oily and dry. This is the one product that keeps my face feeling soft and does not cause break outs. It is expensive for me but is well worth it."

"I have rosacea, highly reactive and extremely sensitive skin. I have tried dozens of face lotions for sensitive skin that burn and sting. This lotion neither causes a reaction or breakout. Also, I love that the lotion has no fragrance. It absorbs very quickly and does not have a greasy feel or leave a shiny residue."


  • Soothes Intolerant Skin
  • Skin Types: Dry, Sensitive
  • EWG Rating - 1

La Roche Posay Toleriane Riche for dry skin soothes and calms intolerant skin. Its smooth, creamy texture, enriched with shea butter, intensely nourishes and restores your skin's comfy-ness factor. Yay! Like the previous two La Roche Posay products, it is excellent for eczema, rosacea and inflamed redness of various sorts. Only this one is for dry skin.

Review Quotes

"I have extremely sensitive skin. I've spent over a decade trying to find the perfect lotion for my eczema prone skin. This is it. Moisturizes without being oily, and without clogging pores. Perfect."

"I love this moisturizer! I have very sensitive and flaky dry skin and have tried practically everything out there. Nothing has worked better than this."

"This is the only cream that calms down my skin. I usually have oily/sensitive skin but I have some autoimmune issues that cause large areas of dry skin on my face. This is the only cream that calms that stuff down without causing a rash."

"I've had eczema my whole life. Recent flare-up sent me to my dermatologist who recommended this cream. My face has never looked better. La Roche Posay has earned a lifelong customer."


  • Non Comedogenic for Sensitive Skin
  • Skin Types: ALL Skin Types, Sensitive
  • EWG Rating - 1

First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream is a lightweight, non-comedogenic lotion containing ceramides and botanical antioxidants. Get your "soft and supple" on, while infusing your skin with great moisture for healthier, plumper-looking skin. (Who needs Botox?!) It's called "First Aid" because it actually has healing properties, as well as preventing free-radical damage. The mild formula soothes and protects while reducing skin reactivity. Great for all skin types, including the most finicky, sensitive skin. 

Review Quotes

"This is the best ever daily face cream, it is light and a great moisturizer! I have naturally oily skin, a lot of times us oily skin people don't think we need to moisturize but we do! With this moisturizer I have less oil on my face throughout the day than I do when I don't use it."

"I have very, very moody combination skin and this has always treated me right. It is lightweight and my makeup goes over it flawlessly and doesn't turn oily. I also have extremely sensitive acne prone skin, so I was really wary about trying something new, but I couldn't be happier that I did." 

"This daily lotion is so smooth and creamy without being greasy. I have very dry, mature skin and this has a wonderful texture. It goes on very light and feels great. It is non-comedogenic and my makeup goes on very nicely and stays nice all day."

  • EWG Rating - 1

SanRe Shaded Rose Healing Face Cream heals and revitalizes irritated, psoriasis and eczema prone skin with rose and coconut oils. It also adds SPF 30 for a nice little barrier to sun damage.

Review Quotes

I tend to get small patches of eczema on my eye lids for some reason and have found that Shaded Rose really helps keep it moisturized and not flaky or irritated. 

My skin is healthier than ever before. This stuff is great!!! Even now during the brutal winter months! I found my new skin care.

Wow ... every single thing on my arms cleared up! I've been using this product for 2 months now and my arms haven't had any eczema breakouts and the cream didn't break me out at all. Its been the best thing that has kept my skin clear, smooth and very hydrated!
