What’s the best The Inkey List moisturiser for YOUR skin type?

At roughly £10 a pop, it’s tempting to haul them all and put them to the test yourself. But what if something goes wrong and you end up with a bunch of pimples on your face or flaky patches where your skin used to be silky soft?

That can happen when you use the wrong moisturizer for your skin type. Bummer!

Save yourself money and heartache and get it right from the get go. Here’s a short guide to The Inkey List moisturisers to help you pick the best one for you:

The Inkey List Multi-Bionic (£12.99)

What it is: A soothing, non-greasy lotion for oily and sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients: The Inkey List proudly promotes yogurt powder for its probiotic properties, but I could’t find any proof it does anything for skin. Instead, the real heroes here are:

Texture: A lightweight lotion that sinks in quickly, without leaving a greasy residue behind.

Who should use it: Oily, acne-prone and/or sensitive skin.

Who should NOT use it: Dry skin (it’s not moisturizing enough for you)

Available at: Asos, Cult Beauty and Feel Unique
