A LIGHT, MATTIFYING MOISTURISER TO HYDRATE & CONTROL OIL PRODUCTION
Creating a daily moisturiser that oily skins and those with acne will like enough for daily diligence isn’t easy but we did it. This likeable —make that loveable—moisturiser will quieten all your concerns about being lightweight enough, oil balancing, and mattifying. It’s pretty genius actually.
And no, Moisture Defence – Oily won’t clog your pores or make you break out. Trust us, we’ve got this. And now you’ve got this.
FOR OILY SKINS. ALSO SUITABLE FOR ACNE
Moisture Defence – Oily does all the things a good moisturiser should do, like hydrate and soften the skin. But it overachieves to ensure it doesn’t add excess oil to the skin or clog pores, both major concerns for oily skins and acne sufferers. In fact, this formula not only hydrates but it also gently exfoliates, helping to improve congestion and move dead skin cells along before they morph into blackheads and then acne.
KEY INGREDIENTS: Papaya Enzymes, Vitamins B3 and B5, Zinc complex
WHY WE LOVE IT:
It’s not just a light and lovely moisturiser, it’s the solution for oily and acne-prone skins who think they can’t use a moisturiser—or won’t —because they’re worried it will make them break out
It effectively hydrates and softens while balancing excess oil
It gently exfoliates with Papaya Enzymes
It has a mattifying effect to keep shine under control
HOW TO USE IT:
Use twice daily: in the morning before your application of Age Defence SPF50+ and at night as the final step in your skincare regime. Apply one pea-sized amount to face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.
Botanical extracts like Lemon Aspen and Lillypilly have a natural exfoliating effect on the skin and help to balance sebum to refine the appearance of pores. Though this moisturiser has an exfoliating effect on the skin to help manage congestion, it’s still gentle enough that you can (still) use it after dermal treatments.

“I think my skincare therapist was pretty horrified that I wasn’t using a moisturiser regularly but I was just scared it was going to make me break out. She put me onto Moisture Defence – Oily and only because I trust her, I gave it a go. It didn’t make me break out or make me super shiny and my skin just looks better in general because it’s being moisturised properly I guess. I like the matte finish also.” – Bella
