Default In need of a facial moisturizer

I never used to (as in, 1 year ago) use facial moisturizer. Then I bought some that claimed to even out skin tone (which it did help), and now I think my skin has adjusted and I NEED moisturizer.

Here's me: pale (which I'm okay with), combination skin. I think it's also sensitive because I break out easily if/when I try new makeup or moisturizers.

Here's what I'm asking of you: recommendations and/or reviews of a lightweight moisturizer for daily (once or twice per day) use. I just spent a good 20 minutes at my local co-op staring at moisturizers and couldn't decide on one due to many being super expensive, or the lavender smell grossed me out, or it appeared too thick and was very greasy when I rubbed a small amount from the tester container between my fingers. Due to being a college kid with little money, something I could get for under $15 would be excellent (I can go to walmart, target, and also have two co-ops near me).

TIA!

That's what I started out with last summer!! I think I'm gonna go back with it. I'd really love something more natural, but like I said - they all were really thick and greasy

philosophy's hope in a jar - this is my HG moisturizer. it has a lactic acid in that gives your skin a rosy glow. it's 99.9% oil free but moisturizes like nobody's biz........

I've JUST gotten Clinique's Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief. I used up a couple of samples and really liked it, so I ordered it off eBay - SO much cheaper. I got the 1 oz. in the tube, which is what I really wanted (as opposed to the jar) for $6.50. It goes on weightless, spreads like silk, is oil free, and absorbs in just a couple of minutes. I only use it at night. During the day I've been using the walmart generic of Olay Complete with SPF 15 for sensitve skin. So far I like that one too.

I splurged! I was at the co-op last nite, again staring at all the moisturizers and almost fainting when I looked at the price.

Burts Bees has a sampler thing, with their Marshmallow Vanishing Creme, for only $7.99. Better than buying just the vanishing creme for $13. So far I enjoy the vanishing creme, but most of the other products are too greasy. I tried the eye creme and the nighttime creme last night and woke up this morning feeling ucky

I'll update about the vanishing creme in a few days after I've used it consistently!

Unscented, "sensitive skin" Lubriderm was recommended to me by a dermatologist for use on the face. It's very lightweight, and will not clog pores or cause breakouts. A considerably more expensive alternative is the lightweight moisturizer by Murad. I'm usually given a sample of it, without my asking, whenever I go to Sephora. I like it a lot. It has a very smooth (not slick or sticky) finish that I think is particularly suited to use under primer and foundation.
