Everywhere we look there is a new and fantastic cosmetic to be seen (and admired), but with all of the glitz and glamour that come alongside mermaid makeup or a snzzy new palette - we tend to forget about one really important thing.
When it comes to beauty products, and skincare as a whole, we are of the opinion that moisturiser is the true key to success.
A suitable moisturiser can help prevent and treat dry skin, protect sensitive skin, improve skin tone and texture, and mask certain unsightly imperfections.
Due to the fact that moisturisers hold water in the outermost layer of skin, they also act as a temporary barrier for your skin - so what's not to love?
Honestly now, there is no point in forking out a fortune on an expensive foundation if you're not using a good moisturiser, so we have listed the five best face creams on the beauty market right now.
