LUX LIST: This week’s top skin-care products to tackle dry skin. Here’s our verdict.
LUX LIST, give dry skin a glow-up with these hydrating and nourishing moisturising creams, lip balms, soaps and all-purpose wonder products.
All-purpose skin cream, Egyptian Magic
There’s not much Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream can’t do, which is why it has become the A-listers’ go-to multi-purpose product and we can see why. Firstly, the fact that it only contains six natural ingredients, olive oil, beeswax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and bee propolis is a great start. Secondly, the fact that the recipe has stayed pretty much unchanged for thousands of years proves the formula must be a winning one. The cream is easy to apply, smells nice and doesn’t stick. Apply it on your face, lips, cuticles or feet for instant smoothness and hydration. We applied some on our hands and left it overnight, only to wake up with baby-smooth paws.
Alpha-H Absolute Lip Perfector
Described as a multi-tasking lip treatment, a combined serum and balm, the Lip Perfectorworks wonders on dry and cracked lips. Infused with refreshing Peppermint, Wild Mint and Honeycomb Extract it smells divine. Once applied the lips immediately feels smoother and softer and the minty zing gives a super fresh sensation.
The Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream is described as a nourishing cream for sensitive, dry or damaged skin or those prone to redness or rosacea. After applying Goat Milk Cream our skin felt incredibly cool and soothing. A little goes a long way and the product glides on and really smooths into the skin without much effort. It is a great product for those with extra sensitive skin and it barely has no scent to it at all which makes it perfect for people who are sensitive to smells.

Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel
Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel is an oil-based formula from the makers of the best-selling Bio-Oil skincare oil. According to the brand the unique gel-to-oil texture absorbs easily creating a protective film to resist moisture loss and restore the hydration within the skin. It smells very nice and is easy to apply gliding on smoothly (a small amount is enough) which makes your skin feel soft and leaves a protective film on top of your skin. We applied it before makeup and it gave our foundation a nice glow.
Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm, Kiehls
You don’t need to travel to the Swiss Alps to get the benefits and freshness of Edelweiss Flower Extract. This creamy moisturiser is really melting onto the skin and providing a 24-hour hydration it leaves it soft and soothed. It’s easy to apply and although quite thick it feels light once on the skin and for any dry areas on your face, it’s a Godsend. And it smells super fresh and clean – just like the Alps!
Body Moisturiser, Nuebar
It’s not just the face that needs a good moisturiser. If you want to use bar products to reduce your plastic footprint, then try this amazing bar moisturiser from Nuebar. Firstly, it smells like a nice biscuit and secondly, it’s super creamy on your skin. You can feel how the Organic Shea Oil and Cacao butter is working its magic on your skin straight away.
