It might only be September but if the 28-degree days over this weekend were anything to go by we are well and truly on our way to a beautifully hot Aussie Summer.
While we love nothing more than balmy nights and sunny beach days, the harsh Australian sun can really leave our skin feeling dehydrated and dull. You too?
Never fear because here is a list of the best Kbeauty moisturisers that will rejuvenate your Aussie skin.
If you wake up feeling like you skipped your moisturiser the night before then the Jelly Ko Bubble Tea Steam Cream is your new best friend.
This deliciously moisturising cream will minimise the appearance of fine lines and inject a much-needed dose of hydration, leaving you with plumper, softer, kissable skin.
Use this as the final step in your skin care routine and apply to your face and neck. We recommend applying this morning and night, and a little goes a long way so you really do get bang for your buck.
Plus, who doesn’t love some Bubble Tea in Summer?
Summer + oily skin can sometimes spell disaster but with d’Alba Piedmont Peptide No Sebum Repair Cream your moisturising routine will be sorted!
This dupe for Drunk Elephant’s Protini Cream is from one of Korea’s hottest trending brands.
The vegan formula targets lack of firmness, elasticity and wrinkles while also nourishing your skin. This cream is made with a slightly acidic Ph balance of 6.5, which helps prevent bacteria from breeding. It also has a beautifully lightweight texture so your skin won’t feel clogged or sticky.
As skin ages, it becomes more easily affected by external environmental factors. This means it can really use some extra loving in the Summertime.
Never fear because APLB’s Healing Moisture Snail Cream has your back (or should we say face?)
We love it because it combines some of our favourite K-Beauty ingredients; snail secretion filtrate, Centella asiatica and beta glucan.
These beautiful ingredients work together to soothe damaged skin, and provide rich nutrition. Your skin will be left feeling hydrated, fresh, and comfortable.
If you're new to K-Beauty's snail mucin obsession there's no need to stress because this product is completely cruelty free. No snails were harmed in the making of this cream!

Ok… we admit it, even we are guilty of having spent too much time in the sun at one stage or another.
iUNIK's Centella Calming Gel Cream is an absolute God-send for skin that’s not in its best shape.
Packed with niacinamide and 70% Centella asiatica leaf water, this translucent gel is amazing in summer because it lowers the skin’s temperature.
This colourless, oil free formulation has a minimal aroma and calms and soothes your skin while also brightening.
SIDE NOTE: We also recommend the Benton Aloe Soothing Mask Pack for those days when your skin has had an overdose of Vitamin D. Pop it in the fridge for an icy cold refreshment for your skin.
The name might be a mouthful, but this cream really is a miracle!
Packed with tea tree plus the 3 key acids (AHA, BHA and PHA), this moisturiser works to remove dead skin, dirt and sebum. These can block and clog your pores leading to breakouts.
Its excellent acne-fighting properties make this cream perfect for those with post acne marks, large pores, excessive oil production, blackheads and whiteheads.
If you are looking for an entire skincare haul, we highly recommend the Some by Mi AHA BHA PHA Set.
While looking after your skin in summer can require a few product changes, the most important thing is always to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP!
Make sure you pop on your sunscreen everyday and if you are outdoors be sure to reapply every 2 – 3 hours. For more tips on how to reapply while wearing makeup, check out our past blog post here.
