7 Moisturisers That Work For Everyone

Hyaluronic Fix Extreme4 2% Hydration Hybrid Gel Cream, £24.95 | Nip+Fab
Few ingredients are more moisturising than hyaluronic acid and, if your skin could do with a refresh, this hybrid gel cream promises to plump, soften and revitalise. It does so by holding water inside the skin's barrier to dispel the appearance of dryness, while a naturally derived source called tremella – also known as ‘snow mushroom’ – means it works double time to tackle fine lines and wrinkles.

BEST FOR COMBINATION SKIN
Cloud Dew Oil-Free Gel Cream Moisturizer, From £16 | Summer Fridays
This sorbet-textured gel moisturiser is one of Summer Friday’s most popular products – and for good a reason. Featherlight and oil free, it works especially well on combination-oily skin, delivering a staggering 72 hours of hydration for bouncy, dewy finish. We loved how well this worked under our make-up – unlike some moisturisers, this won’t cause products to break down or slide around come 4pm.

BEST LUXE OPTION
The priciest choice on this list, the Silk Cream’s results are worth it if you’re serious about good skincare. Formulated with a liquid silk protein, it’s rich but never overpowering, delivering a comfortable but hydrating veil over the skin that locks in moisture and keeps it looking youthful and glow-y. Dermatologically tested and free from fragrances, we love that it comes with a mini spatula to help with application.

BEST FOR DRY SKIN
Hydrance Aqua-Gel Moisturiser For Dehydrated Skin, £25.25 | Avène
Using Avène’s signature thermal spring water, this gel locks in water for up to 24 hours at a time, while Cohederm – an innovative active ingredient – helps restore natural hydration levels. The results last longer than a typical hyaluronic acid, while the calming formula also soothes irritation with a cooling feel that’s seriously satisfying.

BEST CLEAN FORMULA
Vinosource-Hydra Grape Water Gel Moisturiser, £23.20 (was £29) | Caudalie
The texture and feel of this cream are unmatched – especially when you consider it’s been formulated without silicones. Made using 98% natural ingredients, it instantly gives skin a refreshed, supple feel. Apply it after your serum, morning and night, and watch as your complexion drinks up the hydration. Even better, there’s no oily finish here, so make-up sits beautifully over top.

BEST FOR BRIGHTENING
Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream, £20 | Innisfree
This satisfying water-jelly moisturiser is just the ticket if dullness or a tired-looking complexion is your primary concern. Not only is it formulated with Jeju Cherry Leaf Extract – which helps brighten and liven up the skin – it also uses niacinamide to gently boost radiance and glow.

BEST FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Hydra Essentiel Cooling Cream Gel, £38 | Clarins
When your skin has had a flare-up and feels red or irritated, few things will relieve it quite like this gel. Using an organic, medicinal kalanchoe extract – which is a powerful natural hydration activator that increases the skin's natural levels of hyaluronic acid – your complexion will be left feeling hydrated, comfortable and radiant. The best bit is it’s shine free – great for anyone prone to an oily T-zone.
