Skin Care | Favourite Moisturisers

Hi blog friends!!

As you may know, I am a skin care addict which means I try a lot of different moisturisers because I like to see what works for my skin, and because well I love buying and trying skin care haha!
Moisturiser for me needs to be chosen very carefully, I have combination skin which is very sensitive and can get quite dry (wow thanks skin for being all the things!). These four moisturisers have worked on my skin incredibly well and I chop and change between all four when my skin needs something different, so here we go!

All Time Favourite Moisturiser:

My number one all time favourite moisturiser goes to...Kiehls Skin Rescuer! This bad boy is my secret weapon to healthy, glowing, even skin! I got this on a whim whilst I was browsing the Kiehls website (by browsing I obviously mean purchasing). I claimed to do all the thing I wanted it too such as reducing redness, stress and signs of fatigue (the last 2 things synonymous with writing a dissertation). From the first application I could tell this moisturiser was the one! It has a light scent, kind of avocado-y, the formula is light and sinks into the skin so effortlessly. All in all this is my holy grail moisturiser and 5/5 from me!

Favourite Mattifying Moisturiser:

My favourite moisturiser for keeping me matte all day long, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat. This moisturiser is great for us combination skin girls because it regulates the amount of sebum the skin produces, therefore keeps you looking matte all day long. This can be used under make up as a primer or just as a normal moisturiser. The smell is very subtle but nice and the formula feels lovely on the skin, not heavy at all and sinks in very quickly!

Favourite Hydrating Moisturiser:

My favourite moisturiser for giving hydration all day is the Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream. First off I adore the packaging for this product, its so cute! But anyway, this moisturiser is so luxurious and thick and you can really feel it working on your skin. It has manuka honey in it which makes it super great for those of you with acne, as manuka honey helps to keep skin clear and feeling fresh because it has anti-bacterial properties! The smell is to be desired, I don't mind it as it smells like the Antipodes Aurora face mask! Overall this moisturiser keeps my skin feeling plump, fresh and hydrated all day, also when I use this under my make up, it seems to stay on longer!

Favourite Smelling/Glow Giving Moisturiser:

Finally is The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser. This one is great for those tired days, when your skin is feeling a little under the weather and needs a little pick me up. The formula is very gel like and is incredibly refreshing on the skin as it is quite cold. It gives you an instant glow that I have never had from any other moisturiser! This one definitely has my favourite scent, it is very fresh and invigorating, perfect for using in the morning to get that skin glowing!

So there you have it, my favourite moisturisers for my skin type! What is your favourite moisturiser?!

Lots of love
