A million years ago an ad on the television spoke of it being a 'hard road to finding the perfect woman'. I feel the copywriter of said ad ought to have kept that nugget, replaced 'woman' with 'moisturiser' and put it in a skin care ad. With so many on the market, and with our skin's needs to take into consideration, finding the perfect moisturiser can involve a whole lot of trial and error... or in this case, trial and success! Check out our Top Ten face moisturisers as rated and reviewed by Beauty Review members...
1. L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Golden Age Rosy Redensifying Day Cream
Beauty Review Member Justinet says: The L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Golden Age Rosy Redensifying Cream really is a little bit of magic in a jar. I have quite bad rosacea and this cream provides a nice little bit of masking for it, while treating it at the same time. My skin, even after only a couple of weeks, feels softer and is quite noticeably firmer. After using this cream, you feel as though you've had a lovely rejuvenating facial.
2. Essano Rosehip Night Creme
Beauty Review Member Daile says: I was really surprised by this product. Gentle on my sensitive skin, super soft and creamy, not too thick and easily absorbed, it has become a real treat in my evening routine. Highly recommended
3. L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Intense Nutrition Night
Beauty Review Member Judith says: I found my skin was much softer and more supple in the morning - something that I haven't felt for a while. My skin felt hydrated and much softer and made applying foundation etc so much easier and no caked on look which gave my appearance a more natural look.
4. Trilogy Mattifying Moisturising Lotion
Beauty Review Member anudeva says: I just love this product. It left my skin feeling very soft and hydrated giving my face a healthy glow. My complexion has also cleared up since I have started using this lotion. I absolutely am in love with this lotion and definitely recommend it to all.
5. Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Face Cream
Beauty Review Member Kershia05 says: It is a thick cream but it absorbs really nicely into the skin & best of all doesn't leave an oily mess, despite being quite rich. My skin feels comfortable & doesn't appear dehydrated after using this. It makes makeup application a complete breeze as well. I can't sing it's praises enough.
6. Dr LeWinn's Recoverëderm Cellular Defence Rich Replenishing Day Cream
Beauty Review Member Lenore says: I really liked this product, I have minor sensitivity and this moisturiser soothed and hydrated my skin. It is a rich cream but absorbs well with no oiliness. I can be prone to breakouts I had zero issues in this space. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin.
7. L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler Night Cream
Beauty Review Member SandieNZ says: The texture is this beautiful silky soft creamy serumy sort of feel. It is not at all greasy or heavy, and absorbs into the skin just perfectly. This left my skin feeling amazing, plumped and just so nourished.
8. Trilogy Very Gentle Moisturising Cream
Beauty Review Member MrsO says: My skin felt soft and hydrated and lines and wrinkles smoother. It did not irritate or inflame my sensitive skin and I would recommend this cream if you want a natural gentle moisturizer.
9. NIVEA Soft Moisturising Cream
Beauty Review Member Lisa-Lou says: It is lovely and thick, exactly what I want in a moisturiser. It says it can be used on the face and body. I have used this all over and thankfully got no irritation on my face, I always have to be careful as my skin can be very sensitive. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft.
10. Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion
Beauty Review Member isabellah says: I have had a lot of trouble finding a facial moisturiser for acne though I know that I need one for a good acne routine. I found this one and I haven’t let go. It is light and doesn’t clog my pores, I’ve found that my acne is even smaller after I use it.
