For those whose skin veers towards the drier end of the skincare spectrum, this parched complexion quencher provides a well-equipped solution. Enriched with Thermal Spring Water (a brand signature), glycerin and sodium hyaluronate to hydrate, and broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun filters to protect, it leaves skin glowing.
Oily T-zone? Then this cream’s for you. With an impressive ability to leave it matte, not flat, a combination of plant-based ingredients including alpine willow herb and white tea helps to de-slick shine-prone areas while also leaving skin feeling cool, calm and collected for the day ahead.
It's easy to see why this non-greasy and nourishing day cream's a makeup artist favourite. With essential fatty acids from thistle and borage oils to calm skin, a balmy scent to calm senses and geranium oil to help rebalance sebum production, its non-cloying texture is ideal for those looking for fast hydration, but want to forego the oily finish.
Enriched with collagen and elastin-boosting vitamin A, antioxidants, shea butter, mango butter and other skin goodies to help even skin tone and texture, this moisturiser provides a valuable complexion pick-me-up with each daily pump.
As lovely to use as it is to look at, this sunny-looking oil-free moisturiser is multisensory in its appeal. Providing both style and substance, it adopts a multi-faceted approach towards prevention and protection courtesy of broad spectrum sunscreens, ingredients such as barley and wheat germ extract to strengthen skin barrier, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, peptides to plump and anti-irritants to keep skin feeling comfortable and conditioned from morning until evening.
Invisible by name, invisible by nature, this shine and grease-free pick glides silkily onto skin. We loved how quickly it absorbed and its traceless finish - a great combo for those whose combo skin veers towards the oilier end of the scale.
