1. Derma-Rx Intensive Moisturizer, $109.

With ingredients such as bisabolol (an oil extracted from camomile) and antioxidant-rich prickly pear cactus extracts, this rich moisturiser soothes and calms irritation while plumping skin and supporting its barrier function. Perfect for skin that is easily irritated by pollution or air-conditioning.

2. Dr Wu Intensive Hydrating Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, $99.90.

Hyaluronic acid is the quintessential ingredient in most hydrating skincare products and you get three types of it in this serum. I love the light gel texture, and the scentless formula is great for those who are sensitive to fragrances.
