Face Moisturisers & Creams

Every skin type needs a moisturiser, even oily skin! 

Moisturisers are designed to seal essential moisture into the skin and protect the skin’s defensive barrier. They reinforce the natural protective layer of skin by restoring the balance of water and lipids (oil). This is the primary factor in choosing your face moisturiser: What does your skin need? More hydration? More oil? Or a combination of both?​

Our face moisturisers contain powerful plant extracts, essential oils and antioxidant vitamins to hydrate, repair and protect the skin against the drying effects of environmental exposure, pollution and stress. Whether you have dry, dull, sensitive, oily, ageing or breakout-prone skin, you’ll find the right  face cream for your skin.

the best face moisturisers for oily skin 

For those with combination or oily skin, our oil-free Active Moist face cream brings the skin into balance and promotes a healthy microbiome with a unique blend of botanicals that improve skin texture and surface dehydration. If you’re a teen or in your early 20’s and wish to combat excess oil and give your skin a fresh glow, our Clear Start Cooling Aqua Jelly face moisturiser will leave your skin feeling balanced, bright and hydrated. With antioxidant benefits and a retinol-like bioflavonoid complex that refines the skin and combats excess sebum production, Cooling Aqua Jelly must-have for daily oil control for younger skins.

thick and ultra-nourishing face creams for dry skin 

Rebalance the skin’s natural microbiome and support a healthy barrier with our specialised range of ultra-nourishing moisturisers for drier skins. Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Echinacea and Centella Asiatica, our Intensive Moisture Balance face moisturiser helps improve the skin’s moisture content, lock in hydration and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For those looking to combat skin dryness, whilst helping improve skin firmness, invest in our Super Rich Repair - our richest face moisturiser that helps replenish, restore and defend chronically dry, mature or prematurely ageing skin.  

calming moisturisers for sensitive skin 

Defend against dryness and soothe skin  with our cooling Calm Water Gel. Formulated for those that experience dehydration and skin irritation, this light-weight, gel face moisturiser transforms into a skin-quenching fluid, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. It’s packed with hydrating and soothing botanicals, along with an advanced Hyaluronic Acid technology that hydrates at different skin surface layers. Alternatively, select our best-selling Barrier Repair skin moisturiser if you experience moderate to severe sensitivity or have fragile skin. This waterless, melting treatment moisturiser shields against stress triggers, while botanical actives help to minimise long-term discomfort and strengthen the barrier. By reinforcing the skin’s lipid barrier layer, this soothing, protective velvety moisturiser will restore your skin back to a healthier state. 

FAQs 

can Dermalogica help me find the right face creams for my skin?

Absolutely, that’s what we’re here for! 

You can select your moisturiser based on its weight. The heavier it is, the more oil it contains, and this will address dry, depleted skins. Lighter moisturisers in lotion or gel form contain more water and less oil—some are even completely oil free and ideal for oily to combination skin types.

Our most popular moisturiser is our medium weight cream, offering a combination of both oil and water. Ideal for a combination skin. Skin Smoothing Cream is a cult favourite, designed to balance dehydrated, combination skin.

If you need assistance finding a moisturiser or other products that suit your skin type, take our professional skin analysis online or book a free skin consultation with our professional skin therapists to find formulas to suit your unique skin and target your concerns. You can also reach out to our expert team for further guidance. 

what does a skin moisturiser do?

Dermalogica’s face moisturisers are enriched with active and targeted ingredients that protect the skin from environmental stressors, while providing unmatched nourishment and deep, long-lasting hydration. Those with dry or mature skin should look for heavier formulas that contain more oil. Whereas, those with oily or combination skin should select lighter options that help balance excess oil production, while leaving the skin feeling supple and refreshed. Regardless of your skin type or concerns, a moisturiser will seal in essential moisture and protect your barrier. They’re your final step in your skin regimen, along with your spf in the daytime.

why should I moisturise my skin?

Moisturisers are an essential step in every  skincare routine and every skin needs a moisturiser - even oily skins! Without topped up moisture levels, the skin produces more oil, holds onto dead skin cells and can become sensitised.  

A moisturiser balances your skin’s natural oil production, combats dryness, flakiness, and dehydration, and protects your external barrier against environmental stressors that can accelerate signs of premature skin ageing
