We've all had those moments when we've bought a new dress and unceremoniously ignored all of the other dresses in our wardrobe upon its arrival. Well, it seems that a lot of us have been doing the same with skincare. There are so many juicy, exciting and hardworking products out there. From serums packed with actives to peels you can do at home, the options are endless. So the moisturiser has kind of been pushed to the back of the bathroom cabinet.
With so many affordable skincare brands on the scene that have chucked out all of the filler and noise and focus on the ingredients that work, spending tons on a moisturiser isn't the norm anymore. Plus, our skin changes quite often, and there's nothing quite like the disappointment of buying a pricey cream for dry skin only to find your face decides to shift onto the oilier side of the spectrum.
