Quench thirsty skin with the best moisturisers

Sukin Facial Moisturiser (HK$95/125ml)

It is a mild and gentle moisturiser that is ideal for oily and combined skin types. Lightweight and quick absorbing. Contains avocado, wheat germ oil, joboba and anti-oxidant. Those with dry skin should apply liberally.

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream (HK$360/48g)

This wonderful facial cream captures and maintains water on the skin and feels light when applying. It contains mango butter and a natural plant-based emollient, offering a nice subtle fragrance. A great product for the season.

Apivita Personal Day & Night Cream (HK$300/50ml)

A super-rich cream perfect for the dry weather. But the concept of adding essential oils to 'personalise', according to your skin type, adds to the already high cost.

LANEIGE Water Bank Moisture Cream (HK$280/50ml)

Formulated from mineral water and grape seed oil, the cream is tailored to lock in moisture. It is light and soft upon application, but tends to break out after a while at the t-zone.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator (HK$350/50ml)

From the box it's easy to expect a thick, greasy cream, but instead the moussy contents are light and luscious. It absorbs easily and will be a gift to dry skin. Apply just before sleep.
