5 Hydrating Heroes To Stock Up On ASAP

5 Hydrating Heroes To Stock Up On ASAP
The best hydrating skincare should leave your skin feeling smooth, firm and plump. Creams and serums both offer hydrating benefits and you should choose between the textures depending on your skin type. Drier complexions will benefit from a rich cream, while a serum will be sufficient for oily skin.

To ensure long-lasting hydration, we recommend looking for formulas that include at least one of the following ingredients: ceramides, glycerin, hyaluronic acid and squalane. These are grade A ingredients when it comes to hydrating your skin and bolstering your skin barrier to ensure that moisture is locked in.

Here are five of the best hydrating skincare buys we’ve tried recently to help you find the formula for your skin…

Best Hydrating Skincare For 2023



Phytonature Oxygen Cream, £ 130,00

Best Hydrating Face Cream For Mature Skin
If you want your hydrating skincare to work a little bit harder, Dermalogica’s Phytonature Oxygen Cream is a good investment. The rich cream promises to help your skin utilise oxygen better with a host of natural actives from plants that thrive in environments with limited oxygen. The result? Smoother, tighter skin that has fresh glow about it.


Skin Rocks

The Moisturiser - Fragrance Free, £ 58,00

Best Face Cream For Sensitive Skin
Skin Rocks The Moisturiser has been very well received in the Space NK office – our Head of PR says it’s one of the best face creams she’s ever used. Knowing that not everyone appreciates scented products, Caroline Hirons created a fragrance-free option too. This cream is ideal for sensitive skin types craving a long-lasting dose of hydration.


Ren Clean Skincare

EverHydrate Marine Moisture-Restore Serum, £ 40,00

Best Hydrating Serum For Dry Skin
Looking for a lightweight, non-sticky serum that’s going to top up your skin’s hydration levels? Meet REN Everhydrate Marine Moisture Restore Serum. In terms of ingredients it goes further than the usual suspects and includes several types of moisture-binding algae to revive and rehydrate skin for up to 72 hours.



Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum 5%, £ 18,00

Best Budget Hydrating Serum
With four types of hyaluronic acid covering a range of molecular weights, Naturium Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Serum keeps your skin looking and feeling plump and hydrated for longer. It is hands down on of the best hyaluronic serums we’ve tried for under £20. We add a drop or two into our foundation to keep it looking fresh throughout the day.



Active Recovery Broth, £ 75,00

Best Hydrating Serum For Oily Skin
Not everyone needs a moisturiser on top of their treatments and serums. If you sit in this camp and your skin tends to veer towards the oilier side, you will love REOME Skin Recovery Broth. Jam packed with bio-fermented ingredients and a couple of types of hyaluronic acid, this is food for your skin and within a week or so you’ll notice the softer, smoother, dewier results.
