Aine is looking for a good moisturiser for her dry skin and she has stipulated that it must have an SPF. She’s been using Dermalogica Active Moist and loves the consistency of it, so something along those lines would be perfect.
Active Moist has quite a thin consistency so immediately an Olay product sprang to mind. Their Complete Care Moisturising Fluid has a very light feel and is a really good effective moisturiser for the price (about a tenner). It contains UVA and UVB protection in the form of SPF 15 and is non pore-clogging.
If that’s not heavy-duty enough for dry skin then another I have used and found to be incredibly effective is elave’s dermo-cosmetic daily skin defence lotion which contains a whopping SPF30+. The consistency of this one is also very fluid and it’s a cinch to apply and absorbs quickly. It costs â‚¬45 and can be bought online or in pharmacies.
Lastly, a product from a range I’m really keen to try myself – Vita Liberata (left). Their Deep Daily Moisture with Collagen SPF 15 is a light, fluid anti-ageing moisturiser that “penetrates deep into the surface of the skin, softening, smoothing and refining on the way“. This is a range formulated with anti-ageing in mind and every product contains natural goodies to prevent just that. As it’s an Irish brand it’s also really easy to find. You can get Vita Liberata products in Arnotts as well as at a host of other stockists country-wide. The Deep Daily Moisture cream will cost you â‚¬45 – it’s on sale with 30% off on the Vita Liberata website right now too, bonus.
