Your favorite dry skin face moisturizer

Anyone got any good rec's for a decently priced dry skin face moisturizer? Preferably something I can easily find at a chain drug store or online that actually works and doesn't cost a small fortune!

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    I like the Nivea brand "skin milk." I've used it all throughout winter and it's saved my skin from cracking and peeling!

    I like the Naturie Skin Conditioning Gel - a little goes a long way. I use the face wash too. Unscented and affordable, it's sold in drugstores in Japan but also on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%8A%E3%83%81%E3%83%A5%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A8-BU20X05468-%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AD%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B3%E3%83%B3%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%8B%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B0%E3%82%B8%E3%82%A7%E3%83%AB-180g/dp/B01BSJ5ZSI/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=naturie+skin+conditioning+gel&qid=1556153315&s=gateway&sr=8-3 (There's also a 'Hatomugi' brand (barley) that looks very similar but I haven't tried it.)

    My depends on Nivea Skin Milk and he applies it liberally because it’s cheap. For years, I've depended on shea butter (karite). Depending on your skin type, you might find it heavy at first, but it keeps your skin moisturized all day, and overnight if you apply it before bed time. It has almost no scent. In the shops, it’s hideously expensive. I’ve been getting it cheaper on Amazon. The price ranges from ¥800-1000 for 100 g. That lasts me about 3-4 months.

    I love and use Hada Labo! I don't know how dry your skin is but I recommend their Goku-jyun Milk for summer dry skin and their Goku-jyun Cream for super dry skin or in the winter! It is pretty cheap and you can find it in the drug store! http://hadalabousa.com/products/moisturizing/

    I have pretty dry skin, and recently tried Lululun's Precious Red face mask and I've seen noticeable effects in just a couple of days! I'm also on the hunt for a good moisturizer too though but highly recommend this sheet mask!

English Teaching Jobs in Miyazaki

I am planning on moving to Japan at the beginning of September as I got a job offer from a university, however, the pay is rather small and I have a husband coming with me there, so we kind of need to find a job for him as well. He has a bachelor's degree in English Philology, and he already speaks the language like a native, and I was wondering what could be the options in a place like Miyazaki for him. As I understood, English teaching jobs are popular for foreigners with a similar educational background as him, is there anything any of you could recommend to us?

Rainy Season Clothing

I've seen quick drying and rain resistant clothing intended for the rainy season in Japan, but haven't ever bought any. Do you have recommendations for work appropriate rainy season pants / trousers or other clothing?
