Christmas gifts: The Ten Best Moisturisers

By Gemma Hayward

Make your skin glow in the harsh winter weather with a protective moisturiser which softens and nourishes your face.

1. Confort Extrême night cream

£107, Sisley, 020 7591 6380

Extreme conditions require extreme care and that's why in colder climes a night cream should be used for extra nourishment.

2. Replenishing Face Cream

£12.29, Eucerin,

This is a good, affordable option for those who suffer from very dry skin and the effects of pollution. It's fragrant and colour-free so great for seasonal eczema.

3. SuperDefense

£26, Clinique, 0870 034 2566

Fans of Clinique prepare to be wowed by the science behind this products. Red microalgae extract – a stress-neutralising sea extract – helps neutralise uneven skintone.

4. Daywear

£37, Estee Lauder,

There are many factors which can make skin irritable. With its creamy texture, this cream battles against all the causes of premature ageing.

5. Skin Rescuer

£12, No7,

Enriched with vitamins and minerals and blended with shea and cocoa butters, this multi-tasker soothes dry skin on the face, hands and body.

6. Super Rich Repair

£58, Dermalogica, 0800 591 818

The richest moisturiser in the Dermalogica range is aimed at parched, ageing skin. Shea butter, evening primrose oil, coconut oil and Vitamin E all combat dryness.

7. Hydra Sparkling Cream

£39, Givenchy,

Freshen your complexion with this lightweight cream which gives a luminous effect to skin, due to its hydrating and energising technology.

8. Calendula Weather Protection Cream

£6.95, Weleda,

Mild enough for babies, but effective for sensitive adult skin, this provides a protective layer whilst still allowing skin to breathe.

9. HydraQuench Intensive Serum

£39, Clarins, 0800 036 3558

This product aims to keep skin hydrated in both cold and warm climates, both of which may stress sensitive skin.

10. Skin Caviar Luxe Cream

£258, La Prairie,

Yes it's astonishingly expensive, but what do you expect when it contains the extravagant ingredient of caviar extract? There is science behind the luxury.
