So I have dry skin so I have a lot of moisturisers which are specifically for dry skin. It all makes sense so I thought I would run through some of my favourite moisturisers. I do have a few more, but these ones are probably the best for dry skin in my opinion. They all range from budget buy to fairly expensive, so there is something for everyone.
Most of these creams have a thick texture, but the thinnest out of them all is the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser* for dry/sensitive skin. I'm a big fan of Liz Earle and I used this moisturiser for two months solid so I really do like it. I'm nearly at the end of my current cream so I'm debating whether to go back to this for the duration of summer. At £19.25 for 50ml, you get a lot for your money and will keep your skin hydrated, especially if combined with their other products.
For a budget buy, Organic Surge is a brilliant brand to look into it. I have never been disappointed by their products and continue to use a few in my routine. The Overnight Sensation Night Cream* is a brilliant option for those on a budget but looking for a thicker cream for the evening. At £8.99 for 50ml, it's cheaper than the Liz Earle option and I would say that they're also very similar.
One of my all time favourite moisturisers, which is sadly coming to the end, is Perricone MD Nourishing Moisturiser*. I've spoke about it in full here and I have something else coming up all about the brand, but I love the brand a lot. It's pricey, the cream comes in at £62.00 for 59ml but I have noticed a big difference in the texture of my skin since using that.
However if you're wanting something similar to that cream, Benefit b.right Total Moisture Facial Cream* is almost identical. It's not going to have the same science behind it and it is fragranced, something I usually stay away from. But it's a lovely texture and it keeps the skin hydrated. It costs £28.50 for 48.2g of product and it will last you a while.
A few other options can range from Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream* which is highly raved about from Essie Button. I keep this small tube for when I'm travelling back home and to my sisters, as it takes no room up in my bag. For the full size it's £26.99 for 60ml, more for your money than the Benefit cream, but it's all down your preference. This particular cream is suitable for most skin types as it's pretty thin and not super hydrating. Enough moisture for day time for me but not enough for the evening.
If you're a sucker for beautiful packaging, Aesop Camilla Nut Hydrating Cream would be an obvious choice. Perfect for applying underneath make up as it leaves a matte finish to the skin and sinks in pretty quickly. It's created for dry, very dry and sensitive skin so it's great for them all, but also those who prefer a matte finish. It costs £33 for 60ml or £43 for 120ml so the obvious choice would be to buy the large size.
Last but not least, one of the first skincare brands I got into is Origins and this is the Make A Difference Plus+ Ultra Rich Cream*. I repeatedly use the Make A Difference Plus range and this cream was no exception throughout the winter. If you have very dry flakey skin, this will be your saviour as in the depths of the winter, this saved my skin. £34 for 50ml. it's a well loved brand and has a good reputation, but bare in mind that this is a very thick cream
