12 of the best moisturisers for every skin type, need, and mood


TextKaleigh Fasanella

Whether you’ve got dry skin or oily skin, are eco-conscious, or on a tight budget – we’ve got you covered through 2021 and beyond

As far as skincare golden rules go, moisturising is a major one, as it helps to replenish and protect the skin from a number of environmental stressors, including but not limited to: pollution, blue light, and aired indoor heat (all of which we’re exposed to on a daily basis).

For this reason, anyone and everyone can benefit from using a moisturiser – yes, even you folks with oily and acne-prone skin. But because the market is so inundated with options, it can definitely be difficult to determine which one will be best suited for you.

That’s where we come in. To help you find the perfect moisturiser for not only your complexion but for your lifestyle, too, we compiled a list of tried-and-true face creams and broke them down by different needs – whether you’ve got dry or oily skin, are eco-conscious, or are on a tight budget. 

Without further ado, scroll to find your new favourite moisturiser to see you through 2021.
