Top 4 Moisturisers...

My name is Alice,
And I have these obsessions...

People seem to think that as soon as summer hits, moisturiser is no longer an important part of their everyday routine. They are crazy because your skin is constantly drying out, being damaged and renewing itself. A good moisturiser will help your skin out more than you think. I thought I'd share with you my top 4 moisturisers.

Clean & Clear Essentials Moisturiser
Oil Free
I use: At night before bed, after cleansing, alongside tea tree oil
I am sure, whether you have read 4 of my posts or all of my posts, that you've seen me talk about this product before; my skin loves the guts out of it. It doesn't clog my pores, is oil free and is a good base for make up and making additions to. By making additions to, I mean adding things like tea tree oil which is something I have been doing at the moment to try and fight off my breakouts. I wish this moisturiser was sold in larger bottles than the 100mL because in summer it would be the perfect all over body moisturiser due to how light it is and how quickly it absorbs.
Natio Acne Clear Day Moisturiser
Oil Free
I use: In the morning after cleansing my face
When I originally bought this moisturiser, I bought it alongside the cleanser. I think I was so disappointed by the cleanser (claimed to clear acne and breakouts but didn't do anything for my skin throughout the use of the bottle) that my opinion of the moisturiser was also changed. Now that I have stopped using the cleanser and am using a new one along with this moisturiser I am loving it. It moisturises just enough, doesn't feel sticky and I don't sweat it off (something I am very prone to). I also feel like it really does help with my pimples and breakouts.
L'Occitane En Provence Dry Skin Hand Cream
20% Shea Butter
I use: At night before I go to bed
This one is very thick and moisturises so much better than the regular hand cream from L'Occitane. It has a baby powder scent and is probably better suited to winter than summer because of the consistency and formula. I use it non-stop when I get little cuts on my hands or after cutting my nails because of how super moisturising it is.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula
Vitamin E
I use: Mostly in winter due to the thick formula but it is perfect for summer sunburn or following a beach day
I haven't needed to buy another bottle of this is a little while because of all the other moisturisers I have been using, but I will always go back to this one. Recently, I bought an epilator and it has been making my skin pretty dry, mainly because I haven't been moisturising after using it, and after about a week of using this every night on my legs, they are back to their former glory. It also smells delectable and is amazing for your entire body. I even use it on my face because of how nicely it absorbs, as well as not leaving any oily residue on my skin.
There are my top for moisturisers. What is your favourite moisturiser at the moment? I think out of the four I showed you my favourite will always be the Clean & Clear one. I will forever rave on and on about it.
