You may be wondering, is facial moisturiser really necessary? The answer is yes. It’s as essential as that morning glass of water. Apply your daily moisturiser in the morning and at night (after cleansing and exfoliating) if you want healthy-looking, glowing skin. Most formulas help to replenish the skin’s moisture and lock in hydration. Some contain humectants that help hydrate, or emollients that smooth. Clinique also has oil-free options, perfect if you’re looking for a moisturiser for oily skin, because even oily skins need lightweight hydration.
The benefits of moisturising your face are many, from softer, smoother skin to a younger look. Every day, your face is exposed to the sun and the environment, and moisturiser can help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier from potential dehydrators. Facial moisturiser also plumps skin with hydration, so dry, fine lines may be less noticeable.
At Clinique, face creams go above and beyond with treatment benefits targeted to your top concerns. Our anti-ageing moisturisers target the look of lines and wrinkles, while our brightening creams target uneven skin tone, and our SPF moisturisers provide day-long protection for healthy skin.
For specific skin concerns, Clinique has Even Better™ moisturisers that help brighten skin, Clinique Smart™ anti-ageing moisturisers that target visible signs of ageing, and our Pore Refining Solutions Stay-Matte Hydrator to help reduce the appearance of pores. Our watery face lotions provide a powerful jolt of moisture that rehydrates skin quickly.

For best results, you should use a face moisturiser in the morning and at night–every time you cleanse your face. There’s a difference between moisturisers labelled night and day. Night creams are typically richer in texture and have anti-ageing ingredients designed to help support the skin’s natural nighttime renewal and repair while you sleep, while day creams usually contain SPF and antioxidants to help protect your skin from free radical damage.
To find the best moisturiser for your skin, start by assessing your skin’s needs and decide which benefits are your top priority. Is your skin dry, oily, or a combination? Do you want to minimise the look of dark spots or would you like a face cream that focuses on the look of lines and wrinkles? Are you blemish-prone, or do you have sensitive skin? A quick chat with a Consultant will help guide you to your best moisturiser.
You can also get a quick Skin Diagnostic. In a single scan, Clinique plots over 80 data points on your face against models built on 50+ years of skincare expertise and 1+ million face scans. Using these diagnostics as a guide, we translate your results into customised skincare recommendations, including the best moisturiser for you.
