Dry skin needs quenching - especially in winter. The problem with formulas for the parched is that they can be too rich and pore clogging, and all too often they rely on petroleum derived ingredients.

Our picks have been thoroughly tested to ensure that skin drinks them up without imbibing the wrong things. Click on the product names for full reviews:
