Find your perfect moisturiser, tailored to your skin type, for a match made in complexion heaven. Normal to dry skin types crave moisture and hydration, while oily to combination skin prefers something a little more lightweight in texture.

Skin that’s calling out for a supercharge of hydration needs look no further than our Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream.

Feel like you need help keeping your skin’s natural oils balanced? Say hello to our Seaweed Oil-Control Gel Cream. Beloved as The Body Shop moisturiser for oily skin, it’s designed for all-over shiny faces which are super at producing (perhaps a little too much) sebum and in need of shine control. This seaweed-enriched moisturiser has a lightweight texture that will help do all that, leaving your face looking mattified and feeling hydrated.

“An absolute revolution..I have very dry skin, sometimes I put moisturiser on and my skin sucks it up immediately. This stuff actually makes my skin feel soft for almost 2-3 days without needing to reapply. It’s insane.”

Spf cream


You’ll be in high spirits when you see how our Vitamin C Glow-Protect Lotion SPF30 helps to refresh dull, tired-looking skin while helping protect against the sun’s UVA/UVB rays.

There’s a lot to be said for a bit of shut-eye. The wee small hours are the prime time for our skin to regenerate and rejuvenate as it kicks the stresses of the day into touch. Drop a night cream into the mix, and you’ll help keep it hydrated and happy while you sleep. Beauty.

Oil cream


Putting some pep back in your step, our Oils of Life™ Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream is a vegan night cream that helps skin feel quenched and soft as velvet. This nourishing-feeling moisturiser is enriched with three precious seed oils – black cumin from Egypt, camellia from China and rosehip from Chile.

Oily and blemish-prone skin will rejoice for our Tea Tree Night Lotion, a lightweight vegan night cream that helps skin feel moisturised after application.

Sensitive skin needs all the help it can get with holding on to moisture, so our Aloe Soothing Night Cream helps provide your face with a soothed moisture, supremely moisturised feeling by the break of dawn.

Enriched with Community Fair Trade organic aloe vera, the gentle, velvety texture will have your face feeling like it’s walking on air.


The best time to apply moisturiser is in the morning and in the evening. Whether you’re a skincare devotee or a fuss-free slap-on-and-go sort of person, your best daily moisturiser is likely the bathroom product that needs no introduction. Yes, it might be a little thing in your day, but it’s widely considered fundamental to all skincare routines. Need to touch base on which order to place product on your face? Read our guide to building a skincare routine.

So, this is why a daily dab of moisture on your marvellous mug is so important. There’s a whole host of things out there that can sabotage supple skin – from the elements to the season – not to mention personal factors like age and skin type. Making sure your skin is moisturised with the best day cream will only help to counteract those potential effects. It could be tailored for a specific skin concern, infused with protective SPF or get its best work done while you’re in the land of nod. Regardless, all of The Body Shop moisturisers champion naturally inspired ingredients and help your skin to reflect your inner radiance, so you can shine on, superstar.
