However, with such a vast range of products available, choosing the best moisturiser for your face can feel overwhelming. To give a helping hand, we’ve put together a simple guide to help you choose the best moisturiser for you, whether you have oily, dry, normal, or combination skin.

What Is The Best Moisturiser Routine?
We always recommend moisturising twice a day: in the morning after cleansing and toning, and as the final step of your skincare routine before bed. Nighttime offers a great opportunity to apply a heavier cream or oil to help replenish and repair skin overnight.
Take a look at our guide to finding the best moisturiser for normal, dry, oily, and combination skin:
Best Moisturiser For Normal Skin
Suffering from neither excess oil or dryness, normal skin is happiest when treated with a low maintenance skincare routine. Our Sanctuary Spa Supercharged Hyaluronic Face And Neck Crème hydrates deeply without over-saturating skin. Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter deliver a replenishing moisture boost that last 24 hours, while Matrix Synthe’ 6™ plumps for a youthful glow.
Best Moisturiser For Dry Skin
Boasting a powerful duo of moisturising ingredients, with its unique blend of Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter, our Supercharged Hyaluronic Face And Neck Crème also effectively quenches dry skin without leaving any greasy residue. However, those suffering from dry skin may benefit from an extra dose of skin hydration in the form of our Hyaluronic Wonder Oil Serum.
A nourishing blend of Moringa, Jojoba and Pomegranate Oils offers instant and intense hydration to dry skin. This powerful serum and oil hybrid is lightweight and quickly absorbed, making it ideal for use during the day as well as at night. Simply mix 2-3 drops into your moisturiser for instant skin rejuvenation.
Best Moisturiser For Oily Skin
It’s a common misconception that oily skin doesn’t require regular moisturising. However, did you know that oily skin can still get dry? If it becomes dehydrated, oily skin can be triggered to produce more shine-giving sebum, which can cause congestion and clogged pores.
The best moisturiser for oily skin is one that is lightweight but still deeply hydrating . Suitable for all skin types, our Supercharged Hyaluronic Face And Neck Crème penetrates the skin to offer below-surface hydration without blocking pores.
And if you’re concerned about excess oil and congested skin, why not prep your skin with our Daily Glow Radiance Tonic? Applied before moisturising, it gently exfoliates pores with Glycolic Acid for a more even and radiant-looking complexion.
Best Moisturiser For Combination Skin
Finding a moisturiser suitable for both the dry patches and oily areas can be difficult. Applying a lightweight, multipurpose moisturiser, such as the Sanctuary Supercharged Hyaluronic Face And Neck Crème, all over the face will hydrate oily areas without clogging pores.
However, sometimes drier patches may need a little extra attention. Thanks to its precision applicator, our 10-in1 Super Secret Facial Oil can be applied to drier patches around the cheeks and mouth to further repair and protect the natural skin barrier.
By using a dual-approach moisturising routine, you can effectively hydrate both dry and oily areas.
Best Moisturiser With SPF
Along with moisturising, applying SPF is one skincare step that should never be skipped – even in winter. Using SPF helps to protect skin from harmful UV rays and prevent premature signs of ageing.
Luckily, our Sanctuary Spa Protect and Illuminate SP15 Moisturiser combines both steps in one with its ultra-hydrating Shea Butter-rich formula and important SPF Complex.
If you have normal or oily skin, you may find that our SP15 Moisturiser is hydrating enough to use on its own in the day. However, for those of you with drier skin, its Vitamin A and E-infused formula is lightweight enough to be layered over our Serum or Facial Oil.
Best Night Cream
Nighttime provides the perfect opportunity to give your skin a little extra hydrating treat. Apply our Overnight Replenishing Miracle Facial Oil on top of your usual moisturiser and wake up to beautifully radiant skin by morning.
Choosing the best moisturiser for your skin type doesn’t have to be complicated. From dry to oily skin, we’ve got your hydration needs covered at Sanctuary Spa. All there is to do now is enjoy the feeling of radiant, deeply hydrated skin!
