A good moisturiser should be the staple of all skincare routines, especially for mature skin which is more susceptible to dryness.
Moisturisers for mature skin can encompass anything from day creams to anti-ageing creams oils and serums, we’ll be sticking to cream-based formulas which have the primary function of moisturising.
For our lists we take into account customer reviews, real experiences and the quality of the products, to help us identify some of the most efficacious formulas on the market.
