Top 5 Moisturisers for Dry / Sensitive / Irritated Skin

Hey Lovelies, 

So, I have tried tones and tones of different moistuisers, lotions & oils to soothe my dry sensitive eczema prone skin and these are the ones that I find really help to get my skin back to normal .. 

Aveeno Moisturising Creamy Oil
Hate that sticky greasy feeling? Then this is for you! This is the lightest of the bunch but really soothes irritated skin. I find that this isn't quite enough moisture when my skin is superly dry but its lovely when the weather is warmer. It sinks in immediately and leaves you feeling so smooth. I like to use this one if my skin is more on the normal side.

Aveeno Cream
This is so silky and soft and really nourishes your skin. Its a medium consistency but sinks in pretty quickly considering!  I sometimes use this on my face if its feeling especially dry and it works nicely. Its thicker than the moisturising creamy oil but it isn't too heavy. 

Curel Itch Defense Lotion
This stuff is amazing for dry, rough skin. If my eczema is playing up this is what I opt for. It has a very thick consistency and it does leave a slight layer on your skin but it really does get rid of any dry flakeyness. This is not the best for warmer weather as it can feel a bit clammy but if you want a very moisturising lotion then this is perfect! I use this after a shower before bed and by the next morning 80% of the dryness has improved. I find this too heavy for when my skin is more on the normal side.

The Body Shop Aloe Vera Body Butter
This is the thickest cream of the bunch and it does leave a layer on your skin so if you don't like that feeling then this isn't for you. 

Khiels Creme De Corps Body Lotion
If you're not on a budget then this lotion is a lovely treat for dry skin. It has quite a light - medium consistency  but sinks in almost immediately. It leaves your skin feeling so so soft!

What is your favourite moisturiser?


  1. All of them sound great. I think its quite difficult to find skin products that don't brake me out and are good for how sensitive it is. I think I'll be trying a few of these :)
