As far as skincare goes, the simplest problems of all can often prove most difficult to solve. Take your daily moisturiser, for instance. With endless possibilities (from sensitive skin solutions to resurfacing creams, and from hydrating gels to intricate retinols), finding the right formula to soothe your dry skin isn't as straightforward as it sounds. That's why we’ve selected eight major moisturisers and broken down exactly who they’re for and what they do – to turn that lotion lottery into a nailed on morning routine.

If you're prone to oily skin

Thanks to its botanical oil absorbers (micro sponges that reduce shine), Dermalogica’s ultra-light, fuss-free formula controls shine by targeting oily areas, while also acting as an SPF. In short, you’re left with an optimal matte, but nonetheless hydrated, finish.
