Adds all to basket

If we're honest, we're all searching for that holy grail product that we can rely on to rescue our skin from the depths of dryness and make us look and feel glowy.

Even if you don't have a 12-step skincare routine, most people will definitely use a moisturiser at some point in their lives - it may even be the one product they always do use.

Depending on your skin type, some moisturisers can make your skin more dry, oily or even cause you to break out, so it's great to hear from real people on what really works for them.

Luckily for us, Redditors are always willing to give us their opinions, and r/SkincareAddiction is a sub-reddit you NEED to get involved with if you want to learn more about the best products. These guys know their sh*t.

The community is currently in the midst of a huge schedule of content called HG Products & Ingredients Threads 2020, where followers can share their most favourite products. This week was moisturiser week, and we've been gifted a whole load of brilliant recommendations (thank you!!! 🙏).

Here are a selection of moisturisers with glowing reviews, many of which took the top spots in each of the categories. Feel free to check out the full thread here.
