Which is the best moisturiser?

25th Feb 2019

We caught up with SenSpa's Boutique Manager, Laura Shackell to get her insight to the best moisturiser depending on your skin type.

Moisturisers are an important part of any skincare routine. Without a moisturiser your skin can become dry leaving it feeling uncomfortable as well as looking dry and dull. All skin types need a moisturiser as they provide all round hydration with some helping to firm, tone and combat different skin conditions. Natural and Organic moisturisers are recommended to use. Manmade synthetic moisturisers can give you the impression of hydration, but they end up sitting on the skin and not actually being absorbed which doesn’t benefit the skin. A moisturiser works in one of two ways: either by trapping moisture in the skin to keep it from escaping, or by restoring moisture in the outer layer of skin that’s already been lost.

If you are uncertain about which product would be best for your skin, I would recommend a skincare consultation to make sure you are using the best moisturiser that suits your skin type and combats any skin concerns you may have. 

‘Finding the perfect moisturiser depends on your skin type, because not one size fits all'

Whether you're dry, oily or a combination of the two, there's a moisturiser for you.

Here are the best moisturises dependant on your skin type:

Sensitive Skin Type - Laura recommends Eminence Calm Skin Chamomile Moisturiser

This lovely moisturiser combines the soothing properties of chamomile and the healing properties of Arnica. These natural ingrediants help to reduce redness that is associated with sensitive skin as well as Shea Butter and Calendula to help hydrate the skin.

Oily / Acne Prone Skin Type - Laura recommends Eminence Clear Skin Moisturiser

This Ultra-light but effective moisturiser helps to not only balance the skins oil production but also helps to minimise the appearance of blemishes, pores and inflammation.

Combination (Oily T- Zone) Skin Type - Laura recommends Eminence Balancing Moisture Duo

This two part moisturiser has two compartments, one with Green Tea for the T-zone and one for the cheeks. The amazing benefits of vitamin rich Green Tea help to reduce the appearance of blemishes and oil on the skin. Willow bark and tea tree oil soothe and repair the look of skin, leaving behind a moisturised and revitalized complexion.

Pomelo Juice, Goji and Gingko help to hydrate as well as effectively fighting the signs of ageing and reduce the signs of fine lines.

Dry Skin Type - Laura recommends SKN-RG Cellular Moisturiser Dry / Sensitive

The blend of potent bio actives and essential skin building blocks ensure correct skin function. Revitalises, hydrates and energises, skin feels comforted, moisturised and protected from pollutants. 

Normal Skin Type - Laura recommends SKN-RG Cellular Moisturiser  Normal combination

A cellular energising cream that hydrates and balances the complexion, normalising areas of combination. The cream reduces over sebaceous areas and moisturises the skin without blocking the pores delivering actives where and when you need it most. Skin is perfectly balance, youthful and shine free.

Night Anti-Ageing Cream (Suitable for all skin types) - Laura recommends Willow Advanced Intense Repair Cream

An advanced, intensive repair formula to help restore & renew the skin's vitality & plump out fine lines. This concentrated botanical essence includes our miracle oil, Barbary Fig, combined with Chickweed extract, known to soothe inflammation and repair tissue, plus soothing Rose & revitalising Orange oils.

Age-Preventative (Suitable for all skin types) - Laura recommends Willow Sorbet-Glow Radiance Day Cream

This hydrating day cream combines the benefits of soothing Shea Butter with the collagen rich pomegranate to help smooth and firm. The power fruit of pomegranate contains compounds to help against environmental and free radical damage.
