Uncertain weather wreaking havoc on your skin? We’ve got the goods.
Welcome to Hit List, a weekly roundup of all things best and present in the world of beauty and fashion. This week, we lather up with the best moisturisers, from the ultimate protection of Estée Lauder, to the youthful glow of YSL, to the stress-relieving powers of Kiehl’s. So take a look, grab your bag, and quench that skin.
Estée Lauder Daywear UV SPF50
The Estée Lauder Daywear UV SPF50 could be dubbed the heavyweight of moisturisers. Firstly, this miracle concoction is a broad-spectrum (that’s UVA and UVB folks) SPF50 sunscreen. Additionally, Estée Lauder packed the formula with anti-oxidants for the ultimate protection from those pesky free radicals.
Available £30 from esteelauder.co.uk
YSL Forever Youth Liberator Creme with SPF15
YSL has already garnered buzz regarding the Forever Youth Liberator Serum, and now we get the same benefits in a creamy moisturiser. The range boasts a surprisingly visible reduction in wrinkles — and unlike many creams, the Youth Liberator Creme has no age limit, working to revitalise older skin and preventing damage of a youthful glow.
Available £60 from yslbeauty.co.uk
Givenchy Hydra Sparkling BB Cream Glow Moisturizer
Givenchy is always a brand that dabbles in dark romance. Its new Hydra Sparkling formula is technically a BB cream — but before you throw your hands in exasperation at the thought of another BB, let us tell you this cream really does the job. Providing a light tint to hide pesky blemishes, a matte finish and a sensuous scent, this is the film noir of moisturisers.
Available £28.50 from Givenchy stocklist: 01932 233 824
Chantecaille Healing Emulsion
There’s a reason this baby’s got a hefty price tag. The Chantecaille Healing Emulsion contains magnolia to prevent inflammation, lily to brighten and reduce redness, and jasmine to tone and lift — all combined to make a powerhouse moisturiser with a sweet flowery scent.
Available £105 from Libertylondon.co.uk
Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer Daily Hydrator
Kiehl’s is the brand that gives you that homeopathic feel — but it actually works wonders. Its new Skin Rescuer is formulated with Rosa Gallica to reduce signs of stress and fatigue. Considering the hustle and bustle of our crazy, wild lives, a moisturiser developed to combat pollution isn’t just smart, it’s a natural choice.
Launching in July £29.50 from Kiehls.co.uk
