Suitable for all skin types, the moisturiser aims to mattify, smooth, and protect the skin when applied in the morning after your current serum or on its own. I have applied this over hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and any other serum and it still applies perfectly without piling or flaking off and sits perfectly under any sunscreen.

The light textured cream glides over the skin easily with a slight floral fragrance that soon fades upon application. Absorbing quickly to leave skin feeling smooth and hydrated, the cream does leave skin looking mattified with no shine or greasy feeling detected. I think this is a perfect moisturiser for oilier skin types because it will balance out any oily t-zones whilst also it being ideal for drier skin types because it provides enough hydration without over compensating to help skin feel comfortable.
The Skin Chemists Advanced Caviar Day Moisturiser is the perfect product to sit in the middle of your skincare products (after your serum, before your sunscreen) to help improve the condition and look of the skin and give a boost to your skincare routine, x Neil.
