MOISTURISERS, CREAMS & BALMS...

My skin is dry. It drinks in moisture. I religiously use serums and oils to do the harder working jobs in my skincare and I treat moisturisers as the final barrier to keep the goodness in and environmental elements out. Texture is everything and on a daily basis I will only entertain a lightweight yet rich (a tricky combination to get just right) moisturiser. That said, in harsher conditions (high sun or the winter extremes of cold outdoors to the drying effects of central heating) I will turn to something a little heavier like Skin Food and Josh Rosebrook's Vital Balm Cream once or twice a week for an extra boost.

JOSH ROSEBROOK

Vital Balm Cream

A barrier in the true sense of the word. Perfect for extreme weather protection: sun or snow, this will keep the dryness out and the moisture in.

WELEDA

Skin Food

Thick, heavy and nutrient rich. This is marmite but if you have mature or dehydrated skin, it will do the job and you'll wonder why you haven't tried it sooner.

GLOSSIER

Priming Moisturiser Rich

Light, fragrant (lavender) and rich. I absolutely love how supple this makes my skin feel whilst smoothing, plumping and locking in moisture. 

KIEHL'S

Ultra Face Cream

Another affordable solution for very dry skin. This is gentle and light. Offends no-one. A small pot but excellent for thirsty skins.

RODIAL

DB Hyaluronic Moisturiser

Another light one with a beautiful subtle fragrance and excellent absorption with the added bonus of SPF that leaves no residue. 

CHANTECAILLE

Flower Harmonizing Cream

Indulgent, luxurious, healing, nature inspired and divine. A total skin treat: if you can afford it (not many can), this is self-love in a pot.
