Suitable for all skin types (and the most comfortable for oily skins), these super-lightweight moisturisers are perfect for our humid weather as they sink into skin quickly without adding shine to it.
Su:m37 Water-full Timeless Water Gel Cream ($108)
Besides being hydrating, this has fermented-plant ingredients – including snow lotus and bamboo water – that are said to promote skin regeneration.
Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream ($37)
Looking to the narcissus bulb’s ability to retain moisture even in harsh winter months, this gel-cream is 67 per cent molecular water infused with narcissus extract to boost production of hyaluronic acid.
Shiseido Waso Quick Matte Moisturizer Oil-free ($55)
Oily skin needs moisture as much as dry skin, because the more hydrated it is, the less oil it produces. This clear gel emulsion nixes excess sebum by mattifying the greasy spots. Also, find out how to pick the right foundation for oily skin and how to touch up your makeup if you have oily skin.
Dior Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Creme ($110)
Incredibly light and refreshing, the gel-cream supports skin’s natural moisturising ability with extracts of French mallow flower and haberlea leaf.
Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Creme ($136)
A gel-cream that promises 24-hour hydration and a stronger skin barrier that’s better at preventing water loss.
