Skincare | Top Five Summer Moisturisers

Now, I might have said summer moisturisers but honestly these five are great all year round, it just happens to be the end of summer! I'll also preface this by saying my skin is combo/oily!


best summer moisturisers

The Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream RRP £45 for 50ml* is a creamy but lightweight moisturiser and acts as a great base for my makeup as well as hydrating my skin throughout the day but also works well overnight! It is patented with Active Hydramesh Technology to give skin 48 hour’s worth of hydration and also protects against environmental stressors. I haven’t gone a full 48 hours without doing my skincare routine but the biggest indicator this works for me is how plump my skin still looks after a full day of work and activities! Full review here!


Sticking with Dermalogica and their Biolumin-C Gel Moisturizer RRP £65* became a firm favourite last summer! It’s a lightweight gel moisturiser and my skin looks instantly brighter when I use it. As well as Vitamin C, it contains five types of hyaluronic acid and squalane so keeps my skin hydrated, barrier protected and leaves a glowy finish! I love using this in the morning as my makeup sits so well underneath and it’s got a subtle citrusy scent that doesn’t last on the skin! Love this formula and it’s become one of my favourite Dermalogica products! Full review here!


Something a little more budget friendly this time but equally as good is The Inkey List Omega Water Cream RRP $14.99*. Out of the Inkey List moisturisers I have tried this is by far my favourite they have! It’s a water-based gel that contains three omegas to help prevent water loss as well as glycerin to hydrate and niacinamide to control oil and brighten skin. It sinks in quickly and works well under makeup and leaves my skin feeling hydrated all day long! Full review here!


Next up, the Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel RRP £65* is another favourite. It’s oil-free, lightweight and instantly hydrates, plumps and locks in moisture. It’s made up of five vitamins (B3, 5, 6, 9 and E), five minerals (silicon, iron, zinc, copper and magnesium) and five peptides to smooth skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve tone and texture and restore the skins barrier. A little goes a long way with this one and like it promises, my skin feels and looks plump, smooth and hydrated, fine lines are less visible and it provides a lovely base for makeup, working well SPF as well! Full review here!


Lastly, probably my most repurchased moisturiser ever, the Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream RRP $65! This one feels like more of a balm than a standard moisturising cream but never leaves my skin feeling greasy. It’s packed full of five different ceramides, glycerin and panthenol and locks hydration in all day. It sits well under makeup and a tube lasts a long time taking me right into the winter season where it works just as well for my skin! It’s both lightweight enough for daytime but also rich enough for overnight and my skin drinks this stuff up and I always go back to it! It’s hydrating, soothing and restoring! A must have!

  9. I'm always on the look out for a really good moisturizer, especially since the weather where I live is starting to chill more and I will need to make sure I don't let my skin get too dry. Thanks for sharing these products!

  10. These all sound excellent. Summer moisturizers are key if you live in a very humid environment as if they are too heavy you can breakout. I like to use lighter moisturizers in the summer months. Now I need a good winter one!
