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. However, we’ll be sticking to cream-based formulas which have the primary function of moisturising.
Taking into account customer reviews, real experiences and the quality of products, here are some of the best moisturisers on the market in 2019!
Liz Earle Super Skin Moisturiser
Liz Earle’s moisturisers are regularly on the lists of top moisturisers. This superskin™ moisturiser is rich, luxurious and fragrance-free and is perfect for mature or very dry skin.
It includes a blend of ingredients to prevent moisture loss and improve the elasticity of the skin through GLA and omega 3. Plus, pomegranate fruit extract and vitamin E are full of antioxidants to help protect your skin from environmental factors.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream The Marine Cream by Elemis was voted the ‘best for mature skin’ in Harper’s Bazaar’s 150 Best of The Beauty Awards and won 2018 CEW’s best everyday skincare product.
