Spotlight On: The Rich Moisturiser by Skin Rocks

The Skin Rocks Moisturise category has expanded. Let us introduce you to The Rich Moisturiser, an intensely nourishing, barrier-replenishing moisturiser for skin that needs extra care. 

About the brand: 

The award-winning Skin Rocks product range is the culmination of Caroline Hirons’ 26 years in the industry,  offering results-driven skincare products without constraints. Working with the world's best chemists and formulators with no budget or target price to meet, all Skin Rocks formulas are clinically tested, with every claim backed up by clinical data.

The Rich Moisturiser:

Indulge your skin in intense moisture with our ultra-rich cream to leave skin feeling soft, conditioned and resilient. Powered by a curated blend of barrier-strengthening ceramides and lipid-rich oils that reinforce your skin barrier, reduce sensitivity and improve your skin's ability to retain water, this is your dry skin saviour.

Formulated with dry skin types in mind and available in both fragranced and fragrance-free, it has a luxurious, velvety texture and addresses dryness at its core by increasing the level of ceramides in the skin, integral to excellent skin barrier function and water retention. It also helps to combat the natural decline of the skin's lipids (fats), which can lead to dry and/or flaky skin. 

Whether your dryness is caused by genetics, hormones, cold weather, or prescription products, such as tretinoin or Roaccutane, this is a comforting blanket of nourishment for skin that needs extra care.

Clinical study results: 

Clinically proven to:

  • Increase moisturisation by 50% after 1 hour.*

  • Maintain the skin barrier.**

*Based on 53 people after a single application in a clinical study.
**Based on 52 participants with dry skin, using the product daily for 4 weeks in a clinical study.

Key ingredients: 

Indulge your skin in intense moisture with our ultra-rich cream to leave skin soft, conditioned and resilient.

  • Ceramides – Essential for skin barrier function, helping to increase long-term water retention and promote smoother, plumper skin. 

  • Cholesterol – Replenishes the skin’s natural lipid composition, helping to support the skin barrier and maintain the skin’s moisture balance.

  • Essential fatty acids and olive glycerides – Skin-conditioning ingredients that help to keep the skin balanced and healthy whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Oat kernel oil – Helps to soothe and calm the skin whilst reinforcing the skin barrier. 

Packaging overview:

Housed in a glass jar with a plastic lid, the packaging of The Rich Moisturiser is entirely recyclable.

As with the rest of the Skin Rocks product range, the lid of the cream features a handy measurement guide to show you exactly how much to apply.

The Rich Moisturiser vs The Moisturiser:

Think of The Rich Moisturiser as The Moisturiser’s richer, older sister that gives your skin that extra TLC and is formulated with dry skin in mind, whilst The Moisturiser is our go-to for all skin types and has a lighter, whipped texture.

Caroline Hirons says: 

This has a rich texture (in the best way) that still feels light on the skin and absorbs, layers and applies beautifully. It works brilliantly under makeup and SPF, and I love to use it before bed. The ultimate rich, nourishing moisturiser. 

You need this if: You want a rich, replenishing moisturiser for everyday use.   You don’t need this if: You prefer a lighter texture.
