So, for a while now I've noticed that ny skin dries up after wudhu and I don't particularly like the feeling and I feel bad for my skin; I avoid using lotion tho cause I've read on some Sunni site that it invalidates your Salah and not your wudhu either. 

I know it's better to use non alcoholic lotions but it's hard to find and also why shouldn't you use alcohol containing products after wudhu? 

Is it fine if you wait a little and let the alcohol evaporate (like perfumes for examples)?

There are plenty of oils you can use for skin if you get dry skin, coconut for example. Palmer's Cocoa is good, I don't think that has any alcohol in.

The alcohol in cosmetics isn't the drinkable sort, my understanding is it is halal to use products with this in, and according to Ayatollah Sistani he seems to say there is no issue using perfumes with it in:

2Question: What about using the families of alcohol that are synthesized from petroleum and are used in perfume, medicine etc are they Najis and cannot be used during prayer?
Answer: All kinds of alcohol (whether extracted from wood or other sources) are Tahir (ritually pure), and are not permissible to drink, except for wine which is also Najis, and Beer (Maa al-Sha'eir) which is also Najis (ritually impure) as an obligatory precaution.. 
So, the medicines and the perfumes containing alcohol are pure and can be used. 
It is also permissible to eat such food if the amount of alcohol is very minute, e.g., 2%, except for wine.
3Question: What is the ruling about using perfume containing alcohol?
Answer: There is no problem in it.

How about moisturizers? If I apply them at night do I need to scrub them off before I do Fajr Wudhu? :confused:

Unless you apply the correct amount, a lot of moisturiser ends up going on your bedding anyway. The rest you do have left will likely absorb into your skin, anything still on your skin will come off during ablution anyway. So I don't think you need to scrub.
