Tried and tested (and I went through a lot, trust me!), a round up of my six all-time favourite face moisturisers.
The newest of the bunch, Sisley’s Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge is a dream to use. It’s super hydrating without being too heavy and has definiltey become a new favourite of mine. This moisturiser has been designed to fight the visible signs of ageing associated with three dimensions of ageing, being genetic, environmental and for the first time, behavioural. Scientific advances have shown that personal lifestyle (pace of life and stress) have an even greater influence on skin ageing than genetically programmed ageing, and the new Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge directly targets the cell’s lifecycle to fight against this. Lindera extract helps to resynchronise the skin’s biorhythms while Persian Acacia extract promotes optimal energy production and protects against and repairs skin damage caused by cellular fatigue.
A long standing favourite of mine (along with the rest of the Pro-Intense rage from Elemis), this day cream combines powerful, hi-tech plant stem cells and arjuna bark extract to tighten and plump, helping to restore the look of skin’s vitality. This moisturiser just sits so nicely on my skin and I love the consistency of it; it’s hydrating enough without being heavy. It leaves me with an even skin tone and smooth, hydrated skin.
La Prairie’s Cellular Radiance Perfecting Fluide Pure Gold is a lightweight, matte-finish, gold-infused moisturising fluide. It’s beautifully lightweight yet leaves skin hydrated and smooth while improving skin texture. As this is quite lightweight I’ll apply it over a moisturiser if I want that extra bit of added hydration. Being gold-inflused, it diffuses light and leaves skin glowing. This moisturising fluide enhances skin’s firmness, while promoting an even complexion and continuously refining and smoothing skin’s texture.
Another long-standing favourite of mine, I’ve been using the Olay Total Effects range for years and it’s always worked so well on my skin. The total effects range fights seven signs of ageing with its unique VitaNiacin Complex. VitaNiacin Complex, with Vitamins E, B5 and B3, exfoliates to enhance skin’s natural self-renewal process for healthier-looking skin.
This oil-free cream is beautifully lightweight and silky, and works to fade discolourations without the use of chemicals. Actiwhite and liquorice help to prevent and correct any discolouration whilst Vitamin C stimulates collagen production. This moisturiser makes my skin look so healthy and works really well in evening out skin tone.
Great for all skin types, Confidence in a Cream works to deeply hydrate skin, restoring radiance and reducing the look of pores, uneven texture and discolouration. Developed with plastic surgeons, this revolutionary moisturiser nourishes your skin with collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal. Confidence in a Cream helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines while improving the texture of your skin and delivering the ideal amount of moisture.
