Quench face moisturiser
Lightweight face moisturiser for all skin types

What it’s like to use: Quench is a lightweight, non-greasy moisturiser that’s suitable for all skin types and perfect for everyday use. Quench can be used as a night cream, or in the morning as your daily moisturiser under make-up or SPF. Allow a few minutes for the product to soak in before make-up or SPF application. One tube is equivalent to three bottles of liquid face moisturiser so a little goes a long way and it’s best to start off using less than you think you’ll need.
Moisturisers are emulsions of water and oil which make them more moisturising than a typical serum on its own - perfect for dehydrated and dry skin. Quench is great for all skin types including oily skin because it contains ingredients such as niacinamide to help balance oil production and humectants that draw moisture to skin without the need for oils.

Ingredient spotlight: Niacinamide, our hero ingredient, helps to balance oil production and reduce the appearance of blemishes to promote an even skin tone and healthy-looking complexion. The formula is also infused with natural humectants such as hyaluronic acidglycerine and vitamin B5, helping to draw moisture to your skin for comfortable all-day wearability, without adding extra oils and shine. Jojoba features to promote smooth, healthy and hydrated skin.


The Perfector face moisturiser
Solid face cream for balanced, dehydrated and dry skin 

What it’s like to use: The Perfector is super creamy in texture and when applied to skin, it melts into a cream. The Perfector can be used in the evening as a night cream, or in the morning under SPF and/or makeup. If the latter, allow about ten minutes for the product to really soak in before makeup application.
Because moisturisers are emulsions of water and oil, this makes them more moisturising than a typical serum on its own and perfect for dehydrated and dry skin. The Perfector is formulated to soften and hydrate the top layers of skin with hydrating and occluding ingredients, which hydrated the skins surfance, but then prevents transepidermal water loss by forming a film over the surface of the skin. Long story short, The Perfector is dehydrated and dry skin’s best friend!
Ingredient spotlight: Kokum butter, renowned for its concentration of essential fatty acids and protective barrier-forming abilities, is incorporated with nourishing jojoba and hydrating hyaluronic acid to nourish even the driest skin.
The Perfector face moisturiser reviews
Great Moisturizer - I am super picky about moisturizers. I have very dry, sensitive, hormonal acne prone skin and maintaining the balance is near impossible. I originally tried this in a mini because face moisturizer was the solid product that scared me the most to try. I took my mini with me on a beach vacation and my skin was clear, smooth, and non-irritated the entire time. This moisturizer is heavy enough to revive sun and saltwater soaked skin, but also comfortable and soaks in fully for everyday wear. I have used the entire mini and purchased the full size and I have to say, the push up tube packaging makes this product even better, so easy to use.- Maryssa
great product - I love this face cream, i was really worried about switching to a solid face moisturiser but its been great! easy to use and my sensitive skin has had no problems with it at all. I plan on buying the full size as soon as the mini runs out. - Samantha

Face saving serum - Luxurious creamy soft moisturising bar -Alix
Brilliant, non-irritating moisturiser. I swear by this stuff, I far prefer it to lotions or creams and it's easy to apply, a bit like putting on chapstick, but on your face. My face stays soft for ages afterwards and I love it in winter particularly. -Ginny
