How to pick the right moisturiser for your skin

April 09, 2019

How do you know if you need moisturiser? That’s a trick question. Everyone needs moisturiser— it’s just a matter of knowing which one is right for you.

Maybe you’ve read our post on how to figure out what your skin needs and, learning that you need a moisturiser, headed over to the Charles + Lee website to grab one— only to be stumped over which one to choose.

While it’s always good to have options, there’s no need to put yourself through decision fatigue. Take a look at our handy breakdown of your options and take the worry out of choosing the right moisturiser for your skin.

Regular Moisturiser

Our high-quality moisturiser is formulated to assist with the conditioning, softening and hydration of your skin. It’s suitable for most skin types and is what we’d recommend to most people starting out. It can be used day or night after washing your face.

Key ingredients:

● Shea Butter, Olive Oil and Vitamin E to deeply hydrate and soften
● Aloe Vera and Chamomile Flower extract to soothe and reduce redness
● Grape Seed extract, Collagen and Elastin to help fight signs of ageing

Oil-Free Moisturiser

Got oily skin? That’s no reason to not moisturise! Even the oiliest skin needs moisturiser to keep it in check.

You need something that’s hydrating without making your skin oily. Our Oil-Free Moisturiser is lightweight enough for people with oily-prone skin, so it won’t break you out. It’s also quick absorbing to restore skin’s natural moisture levels without shine.

Key ingredients:

● Sunflower Oil to lightly hydrate
● Aloe Vera and Chamomile Flower extract to soothe and reduce redness
● Carrot Seed extract and Vitamin E for antioxidant protection

Moisturiser with SPF

As you’ve seen from our damn impressive ingredients list, moisturiser can do a lot more than just hydrate your skin. In fact, did you know it can also act as a protectant from the sun’s damaging rays?

It’s no secret that too much sun is super unhealthy for even the most tanned Adonis. This harm is caused by the sun’s rays damaging your skin, which not only makes you look older but can have a grave impact on your health. Melanoma on your face? No thanks.

Choosing to use a Moisturiser with SPF during the day is a great way to give the sun the middle finger. Our SPF-fortified moisturiser protects against both UVA and UVB. That’s right, we’ve got all bases covered.

Key ingredients:

● Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E to fight the signs of ageing and improve skin texture
● Olive Oil to deeply hydrate and moisturise
● Grape Seed extract for antioxidant protection

Aftershave Lotion

Skincare doesn’t end at your face. It’s equally important to look after the skin on your neck, especially after shaving. This is because shaving can be quite drying and irritating to your skin.

Aftershave Lotion soothes and repairs skin after shaving, so is a great product to implement into your routine. It restores moisture to your face and neck and leaves you feeling super fresh.

Key ingredients:

● Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E to deeply hydrate
● Macadamia Oil to fight the signs of ageing
● Witch Hazel extract to prevent razor burn
● Green Tea and Native Australian Kakadu Plum extract for antioxidant protection
● Chamomile extract to reduce redness and inflammation
● Sandalwood oil to leave you smelling amazing
