My skin seems to forever suffer from being oily and also the treat of dry patches. As soon as I believe I’ve eradicated them for good and breathe a sigh of relief, they return from the dead for a repeat performance. So, when I discovered this new product from IT Cosmetics, I was literally beside myself with joy (yes, a little sad, maybe). It Cosmetics truly deliver on their promise – this lotion provides 72 hours of hydration. It deals with dryness and moisturises without causing an oily riot on your skin.

This almost weightless liquid is readily absorbed into the skin, taking with it a host of highly nourishing skincare ingredients that really take care of your complexion. Infused with ceramides, glycerine and cactus flower, the formula offers antioxidants, moisture-locking properties and nourishment. This liquid ensures your skin looks healthy and luminous. Perfect for the summer sun. Verdict: Impressed!

Oily skin types work better with gel moisturisers due to the fact that they are lighter and not oil-based. Kiehl’s Gel Cream intensively hydrates, moisturises and conditions the skin. Enriched with Imperata Gylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine to firmly lock in moisture. Once you apply this cream you will notice fast absorption and an immediate cooling effect.

This formula offers 4-hour hydration and effectively keeps control over shine. I love this!

For the purposes of hydration, coverage and protection, Dr. Jart’s is a true hero product. Loaded with glycerine and dimethicone to draw in and keep moisture, providing superior coverage that isn’t going to put your dry patches on stage and with an SPF45, I think we have a winner.

This organic BB cream from Australia boasts an array of natural ingredients to hydrate and gently nourish even extremely sensitive skin, as well as those with acne and eczema. Better yet, their lightweight formula achieves good coverage that soaks into the skin with ease. Result. The only downside is that it seems to be available in only two shades – light and medium.
