JUST 3 BRILLIANT MOISTURISERS
By Maybelle Morgan, 9 March 2018
Find yourself staring in disbelief at your overflowing bathroom vanity, or exhausted by performing a 42-step Korean beauty regimen every night? This might signal that it’s time to strip back your beauty arsenal and start from scratch. A good place to begin is a solid high-performing face moisturiser. The dream cream can give you the perfect makeup base and target problem areas while restoring your skin’s natural barrier. Here are three brilliant moisturisers for every budget…
First Aid Beauty has garnered somewhat of a cult name for itself in the blogger-sphere. And it’s no surprise why with its affordable line of products that actually target specific issues. Eczema, ageing or distressed skin? No problem. And drumroll please for the golden child… the Ultra Repair Cream: a rich, antioxidant formula, infused with shea butter, oatmeal and eucalyptus oil, designed to soothe and protect skin. Oh, and there's no greasy film after – an absolute bargain.
Hands up if the wrong moisturiser has left you at risk of breakouts, makeup slide-off, or been the root of your T-zone resembling an oil slick by mid-afternoon? Well, Perricone MD has the answer with its lightweight face cream, which manages to be intensely hydrating and oil-free at the same time – psst, so it suits pretty much every skin type. The nourishing formula includes turmeric (super ingredient, alert!), green tea and olive leaf. Plus, it absorbs quickly, making a huge difference in how your makeup goes on after. Trust.

OK, OK... We’ll put our hands up, it’s pretty lofty in terms of price. But, if you’re looking to really – like, really – overhaul your skincare, this is the actual one. Containing a super-potent blend of vitamin C (brightness, baby), bee venom (firm it all the way up) and sodium hyaluronate (hydration for the nation), this cream brings the goods when it comes to combining the most advanced anti-ageing and nourishing ingredients. A life of plumper, softer skin awaits.
