It’s always important to moisturise and protect your skin in the morning, even for oily skin types! We’ve rounded up 3 great moisturisers for day wear and all three sit well under SPF and makeup so don’t stress!

Benton Deep Green Tea Lotion
For Oily, Dehydrated, Sensitive

Key Ingredients
- Green Tea Extract from Boseong, Korea
- Sunflower seed oil
- Centella Asiatica Extract

Key Points
- Deeply hydrating and promotes oil-water balance
- Revitalises skin and increases radiance
- Soothing and cooling

Benton’s Deep Green Tea Lotion is most suitable for those with dehydrated oily skin and for those prone to sensitivity. It doesn’t leave any sort of sticky residue on the skins surface after application and sinks into the skin extremely quickly. 

Formulated with 50% Green Tea Leaf Water, Green Tea Leaf extract and Green Tea Seed Extract, this lotion is able to deliver hydration and soothing effects to the very depths of our skin to rehydrate and revitalise our skin. Green Tea is known to be extremely rich in antioxidants which neutralise free radicals, improving the health of our skin and increasing the radiant glow in our skin as well. Plus, it also has some amazing anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties making it a great ingredient for oily, acne prone skin types. 

The lightweight lotion is also formulated with Centella Extract; another ingredient known for its soothing and healing abilities. It is another great lotion for all year round as it also helps to balance your skin’s oil-moisture ratio! 

THEFACESHOP Chia Seed Hydro Lotion
For Oily, Normal, Dehydrated

Key Ingredients
- Chia Seed Extract
- Vitamin B12

Key Points
- Deeply hydrating and nourishing
- Promotes healing and revives the skin

Another nice lotion for oilier skin types is THEFACESHOP’s Chia Seed Hydro Lotion. This lovely product is actually quite similar to the Green Tea Lotion in the sense that it re-hydrates all layers of your skin. BUT, instead of green tea, its formulated with Chia Seed Extract!

Chia seeds are actually able to hold 10x their weight in water, making them a great hydrator for our skin! So you can consider this lotion acting like a chia seed inside your skin, rehydrating and slightly plumping! Chia seeds are also a great source of antioxidants and fatty acids (omega-3 in particular) so they help to nourish, soothe and keep the skin radiant. 

Vitamin B12 is another key ingredient in this lotion. B12 helps with the regulation of pigments and is also a very effective healing agent. This means it will help to promote skin cell turnover, smooth the skin’s complexion (very slightly!) and once again, improve the radiance of your skin!

The Chia Seed Hydro Lotion is most suitable for Oily, dehydrated skin types looking for a little nourishment. Its extremely, lightweight texture doesn’t burden the skin and is quite enjoyable to apply. Need something to revive and hydrate your skin? Well this is it!
