Who doesn’t love face moisturisers? They keep our skin happy and healthy, soothe away dryness and tightness and leave us with a supple, plump, smooth complexion.
But if a moisturiser smells funky or unpleasant, we are that much less likely to use it regularly. That’s exactly why we picked out these 12 best-smelling face creams to keep your skin, and your nose, happy.
Aside from the adorable pink packaging, this iconic oil-free moisturiser hydrates and soothes dry, irritated skin without leaving a sticky or tacky residue behind. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and amino acid-rich watermelon extract, this face cream works hard to protect the skin against environmental aggressors while reducing the appearance of fine lines.
The smell: 90% of this moisturiser is infused with watermelon extract, so expect a fresh watermelon scent that isn’t too overpowering.
This rose-scented moisturiser doubles up as a hydrating cream and exfoliator in one. Infused with illuminating pearls, it’ll help smoothen out your skin and refine pores to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion. This cream also works on all skin types, and its lightweight texture makes for easy application as it settles down into the skin rather quickly without feeling tacky.
The smell: This fresh, light rose scent infused in this cream makes for the perfect pick-me-up, whether in the morning or mid-day at the office.
The formula is made up of citrus fruit extracts and fruit acids that gently refine and smooth the skin. It is has a super weightless gel-cream texture that smooths on easily.
The smell: A burst of fresh citrus fruits. Mouthwatering
A gel-textured skin quencher that infuses skin with moisture plus the brand’s signature plankton extracts that promise to keep skin healthy, balanced and supple.
The smell: Fresh with water-like notes.
Great for oily and combination skin, this hydrates and mattifies at the same time. We love the soft velvety veil it leaves on the skin and that it doubles as a makeup base as well.
The smell: Slightly green and vegetal with a hint of floral notes, reassuringly natural-smelling.
The luxurious iconic healing cream, in a lighter texture. This boasts the brand’s signature Miracle Broth, a marine algae based complex that rejuvenates skin.
The smell: A very unique scent, almost indescribable but quite comforting. It is little medicinal, a little floral with a hint of marine notes.
This radiance enhancer fights dark spots and also has a multi-protection urban shield that blocks out UV, pollution and free radicals to keep skin clear and healthy.
The smell: A blend of fresh-smelling essential oils.
This luxurious fluid moisturiser shields skin from UV damage and protects it from dryness and daily external aggressors. It promotes skin’s resilience and boosts natural radiance.
The smell: A pleasant, subtle musky floral with a soft creamy trail.
A gel-like cream that feels cooling on the skin and instantly soothes dryness and tightness. It also leaves skin supple and moisturised thanks to squalene that strengthen skin’s barrier.
The smell: Refreshing with aquatic, watery notes.
This has a blend of six rose stem cells and rose extracts to aid in skin repair, regeneration, and rejuvenation. It deeply nourishes, intensely hydrates, soothes and plumps and firms too.
The smell: Like dew-covered roses after the rain.
This hydrating fluid is a light moisturiser and a radiance-booster in one. It has silicone spheres to smooth skin texture, as well as pearl particles to reflect light and blur skin imperfections.
The smell: A fresh, elegant floral.
This lightweight cream has essential oils and a potent dose of vitamin C that gives dull, tired skin a much-needed boost.
The smell: Slightly vegetal like most natural skincare do. But with a touch of aromatic essential oils.
