We’re strict on our moisturisers and, asides from ampoules, spritzes and serums, they fall into two groups — day creams and night creams. Day creams are protectants which get the skin ready to face a day of pollutants, grease, stress, bacteria and time spent indoors and outdoors. So with such a big role to play, it pays to invest in a good day cream.
These are some of our favourites:
Dr. Hauschka Revitalising Day Cream 100ml — Which is moisturiser for dehydrated and dry skin. Enjoy a radiant complexion with Revitalising Day Cream. This light emulsion is formulated with premium botanical extracts and oils to support the skin’s natural process of oil and moisture production for a supple, fresh complexion. Dry skin is moisturised and balanced, while pallid, tired-looking skin is revitalised.
Extracts of anthyllis, witch hazel and carrot refresh and invigorate. Botanical oils balance the skin’s natural oil content. Each morning after cleansing and toning, apply evenly to the face and neck. Include décolleté, if desired. For ideal daily care for combination skin, mix Revitalising Day Cream with a few drops of Clarifying Day Oil in your palm, then apply to the face (avoid the eye area). Revitalising Day Cream is an ideal base for make-up. In the evening after cleansing and toning, we recommend applying a Dr. Hauschka Serum for daily, oil-free night care. For advanced care, Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner may be used for a 28-day period several times a year.
Dr. Spiller Biomimetic Skin Care Cellular Day Cream — A fat-absorbing cream rich in Lipids and Vitamin E to nourish, moisturize and balance the skin. Refines the skins texture, increases elasticity and helps maintain its moisture content for a fresh appearance. A strengthening lipid-rich day cream to hydrate and nourish mature skin. Vitamin E, Grenoble Walnut and Panthenol refine the skin’s texture, increase the elasticity by improving the tightness of the skin’s surface and promote a fresh complexion.

REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream 50ml — Formulated to leave sensitive skin optimally hydrated, calmed, soothed and protected this moisturizer combats chronic discomfort, redness and sensitivity to ensure skin glows with renewed health and stays looking younger for longer. Over time it will train your skin to be less sensitive.
It contains Omega 3 and 7 oils that work to reduce inflammation and boost the skin’s lipid content, restoring moisture and providing a natural barrier against pollution and irritants. Omegas also encourage cell division, helping to repair damage to delicate skin, and the calendula and chamomile oils soothe and reduce redness. Beta Glucan extract calms the neuro-mediators that regulate the skin’s reactiveness to stress, effectively training the skin to be less sensitive and so be less likely to flare up. Lastly, there’s REN’s Global Protection Complex, a potent blend of bio extracts that fights free radicals and oxidants to protect the skin from UV damage and inflammation.
- Hydrates and replenishes.
- Skin feels calmed and soothed.
