This is my current moisturiser. Eucerin AQUAporin Active Rich Moisturing Cream.

”Aquaporins are natural channels located in the cell membranes. By enabling water to flow into and out of the cells they help regulate the distribution of moisture in the epidermal skin layers. After years of research Eucerin has now developed AQUAporin ACTIVE, based on nature-identical Gluco-Glycerol that supports this natural network (in-vitro / ex-vivo). Moisture is optimally distributed even in deeper epidermal skin layers. The result, skin is provided with intense moisture, even in deeper epidermal skin layers. AQUAporin Rich is suited to dry and sensitive skin”.

Despite the fact that this is termed a ‘Rich’ cream, it neither thick nor thin in consistency I find it to be somewhere in between and once applied, it absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy residue on my skin. It is actually a lovely base for make up and is non perfumed and non irritating. This is a perfect cream for sensitive cream in my opinion as it’s so gentle.

It really does a great job of plumping up my skin and keeps it well hydrated, soft and smooth. Eucerin also do the AQUAporin Active cream in a light version for normal to combination skin, and an SPF 15 + UVA version for normal skin.
