Finding the perfect face moisturiser is just one of those things that takes a while to get right, we totally understand. You’ve spent the majority of your 20s experimenting with, and trialling different brands, formulas and products and as years go on, you’re still doing just that.
The beauty world is saturated with different moisturisers (no pun intended) promising to give you the skin you’ve always dreamed of, and it’s fair to say that not all live up to their hype (which is super annoying considering how expensive some of them can be).
While we understand that every skin type is different and there are way too many factors to consider to warrant a ‘one-size fits all’ approach, what we do know is that there are a number of moisturisers that can be confidently labelled with a ‘cult-favourite‘ status that is sure to fix one of your skin woes.
Here are 7 you’ll find on your favourite beauty blogger’s shelfie (and now on our Amodrn e-shop!).
As one of Australia’s best-selling moisturisers, Drunk Elephants’ Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream needs no introduction. Inspired by a classic, old-fashioned formula (think; the creams your grandmother used to use), this whipped moisturiser delivers instant hydration in a lightweight feel. Infused with rich, African oils and plant extracts designed to heal and renew, fermented green tea works to combat ageing and inflammation while promoting firmness, density and elasticity.
Containing sea kelp, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, lecithin, vitamins C, E and B12, plus oils of citrus, eucalyptus, wheat germ, alfalfa and sunflower—there’s nothing that this moisturiser doesn’t do. Luxuriously lightweight and silky smooth to touch, this cream works to penetrate deep into the skin and replenish moisture. It’ll visibly strengthen the look of your skin and leave your complexion feeling youthfully radiant.
Formulated with a Super 7 Complex specifically designed to minimise and prevent visible signs of ageing, this daily moisturiser delivers intense hydration and boosts radiance. Further enriched with maca root extract for enhanced luminosity, this is the perfect multi-tasker for those wanting to achieve glowing skin, and fast.
Super lightweight and hydrating, the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream will leave your skin looking and feeling visibly refreshed. Made from a unique combination of ingredients to help keep your complexion smooth and soft and provide protection against environmental elements, this everyday moisturiser makes the perfect base for your makeup thanks to its barely-there feel.
For unrivalled radiance, look no further than the ORIGINS GinZing energy-boosting moisturiser. Packed with antioxidant boosters including Panax Ginseng and coffee beans to jumpstart hydration levels, dull skin will be rapidly refreshed and revitalised to create a healthy, vibrant glow.
Fun fact: This effective formula was developed by plastic surgeons, yep! If you want a quick-absorbing product that instantly transforms your skin, Confidence in a Cream by IT Cosmetics combines collagen and hyaluronic acid for a supple and plump finish while niacin and peptides activate upon contact to enhance firmness and minimise the look of pores.
Replenish stressed, dehydrated, lifeless skin with the highly-effective Hyaluronic Moisture Cushion by Dr Dennis Gross. As its name suggests, it’s enriched with hyaluronic acid which works to bind moisture to skin in a lightweight manner. Complete with a unique gel consistency, its easily absorbed into the skin and doesn’t leave greasy residue.
