Skinstitut Moisture Defence - Normal Skin by Skinstitut

Overview

Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Normal Skin is a lightweight moisturiser developed to hydrate and smooth rough complexions. Formulated with unique Peptides that refine and reduce the appearance of fine lines, this moisturiser is a great addition to any age-preventive skincare routine for normal or combination skin.


Key benefits of Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Normal Skin:

  • Softens, smoothes and moisturises
  • Increased moisture without clogging
  • Improves overall texture of skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines 
  • Protects skin cells against pollution and aggressors 
  • Provides antioxidant protection

A key ingredient of this ultra-nourishing moisturiser is Kakadu Plum, an Australian native plant. This indigenous fruit is the world’s most potent source of naturally occurring Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects against free radical damage, pollutants, and aggressors. Vitamin C also brightens the complexion and treats pigmentation and redness by strengthening the capillaries.

This face cream traps moisture and stimulates hydration within the skin, protects the skin barrier, smooths the complexion, and provides anti-ageing support.
Moisture Defence for Normal Skin has been specially formulated for skin that is more water-dry than oil-dry, so this cream is best suited to normal or combination types. It preserves moisture without clogging pores.


How to use Skinstitut Moisture Defence - Normal Skin:

  • After cleansing, dab cream around the fragile eye area, moving inwards and upwards.
  • Apply a small amount of product to the throat, chin, and forehead, massaging upwards and outwards. 
  • Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Normal Skin can be used daily and is recommended for morning use, followed by Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+.

Skin that is very dry, lipid-poor, mature, or irritated benefits from the extra protection and replenishment of specially formulated Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Ultra Dry Skin. Use a sun protection product such as Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+ in your morning skincare routine, under your moisturiser to fight uv damage that causes premature signs of ageing in the skin.

Great under makeup - 17-08-2018 by

I use this on days where my skin is feeling more dry and it works really well under foundation

My staple moisturiser - 16-08-2018 by

Daytime with a shake of Vitamin C powder, let it soak in, and foundation applies beautifully over it. At night time I add a couple of drops of carrot seed oil (I find carrot seed oil beats rosehip oil hands down). My skin's just not the same if I run out and use something else. Note to self: get more organised. Skinstitut - if you're listening - a day-cream with added SPF would be great, and then a fortified night cream. Yes? No? Its in the pipeline?

Lightweight - perfect for under makeup - 15-08-2018 by

I've got fairly dehydrated skin but I love using this product under my makeup in the mornings. It's very lightweight and doesn't feel greasy at all. The only reason for 4 stars is that I generally wouldn't use it before bed as I need something a little bit more rich and hydrating for night time. Great product - I've already repurchased again!

Lightweight good for normal skin - 14-08-2018 by

I’m 50+ and luckily have good /normal skin. There’s very little scent which is great. This moisturiser is very light and initially feels like it doesn’t have enough ‘oomph’ but after using for a little while I’m hooked. I do mix a little skinstitut vitamin C powder in for a bit more power. It absorbs very quickly, no oily or damp feeling residue and is sensational under foundations - liquid or mineral powders alike. A little goes a long way which makes this economical.

Average - 13-08-2018 by

Very lightweight and moisturising product, however made my skin look very oily and not glowy

Great for acne - 13-08-2018 by

I have found this to give me skin the moisture it needs without clogging my acne. I struggled to find a moisturiser for my oily acne skin for a very long time but I’ve finally found one that actually works!

Love - 13-08-2018 by

This mosturiser is amazing! So genrle on skin and leaves skin feeling so soft and fresh! A must have for my sensitve skin in my morning and night routine

Didn't do much for my skin - 13-08-2018 by

I tried this product but found it didn't do much for my skin. It is easy to spread and is easily absorbed however it didn't leave my skin feeling hydrated or any much different. Although my face isn't dry, I decided to try the equivalent moisturiser for dry skin and that worked much better. I'm not really sure what to expect with this product. It 'just did the job' which was provide a layer of moisturiser and that was it.

Lightweight and fresh - 08-08-2018 by

I love this moisturiser. It is lightweight on the face, yet still feels that it is providing deep moisture to my skin.

Great light weight moisturiser - 08-08-2018 by

This is a great light weight moisturiser. It has a gel like consistency. I use it as part of my daytime skin care routine. I need something heavier for nighttime.
My skin is combination and congested. This product would be great for those with oily skin.
My only criticism is that the bottle is quite small - make it bigger please.

A little goes a long way - 31-07-2018 by

Silky smooth, definitely moisturizing and i feel it will last forever as you only need a little.

Repeat purchase! - 25-07-2018 by

I have been using this sunscreen for over three years close to everyday (some mornings I'm rushed and forget!) and I cannot imagine straying.

It is well priced, seems to protect my skin, doesn't smell funky/chemically and it works well under makeup.

My skin is combination and can be picky with certain products but I've never had an issue with Skinstitut products.

Great product and price - 24-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and found this product really great, it leaves my skin hydrated without clogging my pores and causing pimples like a lot of moisturisers do. I would recommend this product.

Extremely hydrating! Love it! - 24-07-2018 by

Love this product! I suffer with normal/dry skin especially in winter and it has hydrated my skin so much. Even makes my makeup sit nicer on my face and smells amazing! I have slightly sensitive skin too and it’s so gentle and calming on my skin. Highly recommend!

Great everyday product - 17-07-2018 by

This is the first Skinstutut product I purchased after getting a peel at a salon and this product is what kicked off my Skinstitut journey. I have super dry acne prone skin that seems to be unhappy no matter what I put on it. But this range has calmed everything down and stopped my active breakouts right in their tracks.
I love the smell of this moisturiser and it leaves my skin hydrated and lovely all day. I have found in the winter that it is not enough to use day and night but I have purchased the Ultra Dry version to combat that.
My make up wears really well underneath it and I don’t get that tight feeling half way through the day that I normally get.
Big fan of this one

Great light, everyday moisturiser - 17-07-2018 by

I have combination skin that reacts to so many skincare products, but I've had no reaction to this moisturiser. I appreciate the consistency and lack of fragrance, but I don't find that it's quite enough for all day hydration. I mix it with a little rosehip oil for under makeup, and with the Skinstitut Repair Balm in the evening. I've just tried using a different brand for my everyday moisturiser and have noticed a negative difference, so will be repurchasing the Moisture Defence shortly. So happy with how my skin has been feeling, it's much clearer since switching to Skinstitut products!

It’s ok - 16-07-2018 by

This product does have a nice feel, pretty lightweight, quickly absorbed. I have combination skin but I find that it’s not quite moisuring enough for me, especially in winter. Good moisturiser for summer though.

Nice product! - 11-07-2018 by

I was recommended this product by my local laser clinic, and while I do love the skinstitut brand, I found my normal skin feeling tight and a bit dry by lunchtime but maybe that's just me! This would be perfect if you're looking for a light moisturiser that leaves a matte effect.

Great for my skin - 09-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and this moisturiser works really well for me, i use it twice daily. It doesn't break me out and leaves my skin feeling incredibly hydrated and nourished, without looking greasy or oily. This moisturiser works even well in combination with the other skinstitut products, like the gentle cleanser and the retinol cream. Such a good brand with truly effective products!

Amazing Everyday Moisturiser - 09-07-2018 by

I have been using this product for well over a year now, and will not change! It is light weight and works well pre-primer, as well as mixed with the skinstitut multi active oil in winter.

Nice everyday moisturiser - 06-07-2018 by

I have been using this moisturiser every morning for a month or so now and am quite happy with the results. It slides on nice and easily and gets absorbed quickly, meaning I don't have to wait long to apply makeup. Personally I feel like I need something a bit more hydrating though, especially in winter.

Great product - 04-07-2018 by

I've used some pretty average moisturizers in the past but this is by far the best. A little goes along way and it smells lovely. Really works

Great to mix with rosehip as daily moisturiser in winter. - 02-07-2018 by

I have freckled, fair, sensitive skin which is combination and I find this is product protective from the cold in the winter.

I mix rosehip with my moisturiser each day. Usually the laser aid of the same brand, which also settles my skin but is not quite as protective.

This product is not oily or thick as some are.

A great everyday moisturiser! - 02-07-2018 by

This product is wonderful! It’s not too thick and doesn’t have any nasty smell to it. I have normal to dry skin and have found the moisture level has been great for me! It’s easily absorbed into the skin and only requires a small amount of product. My skin definitely feels more plump and hydrated after using this product.

Really effective - 28-06-2018 by

I have dry/combination skin and found this product really great, it leaves me hydrated and refreshed without clogging my pores. This product does exactly what it says and I would really recommend!

INCREDIBLE - 25-06-2018 by

I really enjoy the more gel consistency rather than cream, as it doesn’t feel as heavy. This is nice and light, and quite fresh on the face. This one is a must have! It last ages too!

Lightweight and absorbs really quickly - 25-06-2018 by

I am more of a drier skin, but got this normal skin moisturiser in a pack. It is actually really hydrating for my drier skin, without it being greasy. I hate that. This really absorbs quickly because it isn't a thick cream, but keeps you feeling really hydrated. I love this brand!

Thin but good. - 19-06-2018 by

Good for a day cream or a light moisturiser. Light weight and absorbs easily.

Great feeling on your skin - 18-06-2018 by

This moisturiser feels great on your skin. It keeps your skin sipple and beautiful all day long. Wonderful xxxx

Great everyday moisturiser - 18-06-2018 by

I have pretty normal skin its not too dry or too oily. This is a lightweight moisturiser which feels fresh and is quickly absorbed. It has a cucumber scent which isnt overpowering and feels quite refreshing in the morning. I am using something a bit more high performance at night but i like this to go under makeup. Great price too.

Great Moisturiser for Combination Skin - 11-06-2018 by

I am happy with this Moisturiser - it provides a lot of hydration from my combination skin without making me break out. The only downside is that it is quite watery which means I end up applying a lot of product. It doesn't dry sticky or leave a residue.

Not Bad - 07-06-2018 by

This product is OK if your looking for a lightweight moisturiser, very thin quick to be absorbed, I do prefer the Ultra Dry as I get older, its a thicker product but I find I can use it under make up still, this product would be good for younger skin and maybe more mature skin over the summer, not bad but there is better products in the skintitutes range in my opinion.

Great Moisturiser for Combination Skin - 04-06-2018 by

I am happy with this Moisturiser - it provides a lot of hydration from my combination skin without making me break out. The only downside is that it is quite watery which means I end up applying a lot of product. It doesn't dry sticky or leave a residue.

Great moisturiser - 02-06-2018 by

i’ve never used any skinstitut products before but i love this moisturiser! it makes my skin feel really hydrated and soft. it absorbs into your skin so quickly. will definitely be repurchasing

Great - 28-05-2018 by

I love this product. As a beauty therapist I find this is my fave cleanser. It removes all my make up and leaves my skin so clean and soft

Exceptional - 25-05-2018 by

This has become my go-to moisturiser. I realllllly like how it's not a think cream but a very thin gel like formula. Very impressed.

Love - 17-05-2018 by

I love the way this moisturiser sinks into your skin quickly and doesn't make your skin look shiny. I have an oily t-zone and get occasional pimples and this doesn't clog my pores. It is light-weight and feels good on the skin. I will continue to repurchase this.

I really like this - 15-05-2018 by

I love how this is gel and not cream. Soaks in so fast and leaves my skin so soft.

Love it - 15-05-2018 by

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. It soaked in INSTANTLY leaving my skin feeling incredably soft and smooth. I highly recommend this if you like moisturizers that soak in fast!

I am shook - 15-05-2018 by

I was not expecting to like this as much as I do. I was shocked when it came out more of a gel then cream, but I LOVE IT. It soaked in INSTANTLY leaving my skin feeling sooo soft and smooth!

light and moisturising - 08-05-2018 by

Truly love this moisturiser! I like the more gel consistency rather than cream, as it doesn’t feel as heavy. This is nice and light, and quite fresh on the face.

Great Moisturiser! - 19-04-2018 by

I am very happy with this Moisturiser - it is fast absorbing and makes my skin glow and is soft to the touch. Doesn't dry sticky. Very Hydrating for my dry skin. Would highly reccommened!

Depends on your preference - 12-04-2018 by

If you like super fast absorbing moisturisers, this one is for you. Doesn’t quite do enough for my skin in terms of moisturising.

Best product ever! - 11-04-2018 by

Best product ever! Its taken me years to find a good moisture that doesn't make my skin oily amd get pimples. This product is like silk! Highly recommend it.

Great - 03-04-2018 by

I love this product - I use the moisturiser every morning after using the gentle cleanser. I don't feel it clogging up my pores, it feels lovely and light

Great for pretty much any skin type - 13-03-2018 by

I love this stuff! Keeps my skin in tip-top condition, my skin looks radiant and healthy, and is perfect for combination skin types and has never broken me out.

The formula is fairly runny and has a yellow tinge to it. It doesn't smell of anything in particular, just a bit zesty if anything. You only need a pea-sized amount. I use twice daily and this tube will last me a month or two. I prefer to use this in the warmer months when my skin doesn't require as much moisture - then I will use the Ultra Dry formula (the two formulas are completely different from each other).

Mixes great with the Age Defence SPF 50+, Multi Active Oil or the Vitamin C powder from my experience. I would definitely recommend.

Brilliant ! - 21-02-2018 by

This works perfectly for my combination skin, I’ve never used a moisturiser that suits my skin as well as this. Yeah it’s a little pricey, but 100% worth it

Love love love - 19-02-2018 by

Love this product I mix with vitamin c powder . And great to use before makeup . Leaves a lovely finish when wearing no make up . I also use over retinol however just purchased the one for dry skin as retinol makes my skin very tacky after use so needs that bit of extra moisture at night . Will defiantly be purachaing again love skinstitut products

Great moisturiser all year round - 19-02-2018 by

I love this moisturiser, I can use it through summer and winter and it does not disappoint.

It smells amazing and absorbs reasonably quickly.

Excellent - 09-01-2018 by

I tried this after reading all the reviews and it did not dissapoint. You literally only need a pea sized amount so the tube will last ages. Skinstitute has such great products that are reasonbly priced. Only thing I dont like is the smell but it doesnt linger once rubbed in

Good all rounder and can’t beat the price - 28-12-2017 by

I have oily skin and use this and it doesn’t make my skin oily. It leaves it nice and smooth and sinks in. It’s so much better then most of the high end moisturisers at a fraction of the cost.

No greasy residue - 27-12-2017 by

It’s silky smooth, a little goes a long way and adds the finishing touch to my nightly skin routine without a greasy residue.

Ultra-hydrating + Great value - 27-12-2017 by

I love this moisturiser for the way that it hydrates my skin without clogging my pores (I have oily/acne-prone skin). It glides over your skin easily so you really only need a pea-sized amount for your whole face. Super-effective + Great value!

Amazing moisturiser - 07-12-2017 by

I love this moisturiser! I use the Ultra Dry formula in winter when heating is harsher and more drying on my skin, but in the humid summer months, this is perfect. I love the light almost gel-like consistency. It feels great and absorbs quickly into the skin with no slimy/oily film like other moisturizers can have. Works well with the Vitamin C powder to brighten up your skin. It also layers well at night with oils or serums underneath. Love it! Have gone through 3 tubes since I started using Skinstitut (but it lasts for ages!)

#1 Moisturizer - 04-12-2017 by

Highly recommend.

Works well with the gentle cleanser if you have sensitive skin.

I have rosacea, acne break outs, combination sensitive skin. The moisturizer is gentle and soothing.

I use the calming range in the Skinstitut products and due to the active ingredients, I believe it works well and actually helps my skin in comparison to other products which either make your skin worse or just maintains your cleansing routine.

Amazing!!! Holy grail - 29-11-2017 by

My skin type is sensitive, dry and dehydrated but I use normal moisturizer as I also use the multi active oil and I don't want to over moistrise.
My skin concern was dry and spot prone and I love this product because it's so light weight and absorbs so well!

Great for combination skin - 28-11-2017 by

My skin never knows when its oily or dry and this product is absolutely amazing! My skin feels so hydrated and all my family and friends have seen such a huge difference in my skin. I recommend this product to everyone.

Fantastic for combo skin! - 22-11-2017 by

When I initially started using skinstitut I was recommended the moisture defense for normal skin and it worked perfectly on my skin until it become a bit dy and I switched to the moisture defense for ultra dry skin which is my holy grail. The tube also lasts about 3 months which is a major bonus and you only need a pea sized amount as it recommends. :)

Works just fine - 20-11-2017 by

Lightweight and good if you like to leave heavier creams for the PM. Doesn't really smell like anything (which can be a pro or con depending on what you like). I have pretty dry skin in the winter so this would probably be not enough then, but for the humid summer my skin normalises and this is just right.

Great product for combined skin type - 10-10-2017 by

I have been having concerns with my skin lately - forehead and skin oily, some pimples etc
This cream works wonders for me, leaves my skin moisturised but never oily.
It's my second time to order it!

Great for combination skin - 05-10-2017 by

I have combination skin, dark hair and brown eyes and have always struggled to find a skin care range that Is suitable for my hormonal breakouts but could also could also cater to my dry cheeks and oily T zone. I was tossing up between this or the gel for oily skin but I am very happy that I have chosen this product. It gives me enough moisture but also is not heavy on my skin to cause breakouts or leave me looking oily. I use this day and night and it sits well under makeup. I highly recommend this to anyone with fussy combination skin, this has been a life saver.

Great moisturiser for a great price - 02-10-2017 by

I really like this, it's nice and lightweight and doesn't make my skin go oily. It does come out of the tube too quickly, as you don't need a lot, but I just make sure I don't squeeze too much out.

Fabulous product - 02-10-2017 by

I really wanted to try this after seeing all the great reviews.
Its amazing i have pretty oily skin but dry in some places i found that it did not make me oily at all infact i stayed oil free and was still very moisturising and a little goes a long way.

Great lightweight moisturiser that doesn't cause congestion - 27-09-2017 by

I have dealt with congested skin for years and years, tried tens if not hundreds of products to clear my skin up. This is a great lightweight moisturiser that didn't congest my skin like alot of other moisturisers do. A small tube but a good price, would recommend.

All time favourite moisturiser! - 14-09-2017 by

This is my new go-to moisturiser. It smells fresh, absorbs into the skin quickly and does not leave my face feeling sticky like other moisturisers have. I have sensitive red rosacea like cheeks and this helps my skin stay calm and clear. It does not make my face flare up, it helps with my redness and does not make my skin too oily. I would recommend this to anyone!

My new go-to moisturiser - 12-09-2017 by

I've been using this moisturiser for 4 months now and it's become a permanent addition to my skincare regime. I have combination skin so this moisturiser has been a lifesaver for dealing with dry and congested areas!

Great moisturiser - 03-09-2017 by

I have bought this moisturiser several times now. I am happy with the light texture and the fact it doesn't smell too fragrant nor test on animals. I think i have 'normal' skin, am in my late 30s and i use it through both a Sydney summer and winter.

Affordable lux product - 21-08-2017 by

Love that skinstitute products are just as good as some of the high end products but a fraction on the price,

I use this on my skin morning and night as my last step and since using it my skin has been fantastic, I barely get breakouts and my skin isn't dry like it usually is during summer.

I'm hooked! - 06-08-2017 by

I was recommended skinsitut products by a dermatologist and have been using this regularly for years now and it definitely has made a difference!
Love these products!

No more breakouts! - 27-07-2017 by

I'm 28 and still suffering from hormonal acne......fun times. This moisturiser effectively moisturisers my skin without causing more breakouts. No other moisturiser has been able to do that. It smells nice and is smooth to apply to my face and neck. You only need a bit, don't worry if your skin feels dry or that you haven't applied enough product, after an hour or so your skin feels hydrated minus the oil. 100% recommend to people with combination skin.

Love this - 19-07-2017 by

I recently started using Skinstitut products as a recommendation from the laser clinic I attend and this is the range most suited to my skin.

I get break outs, I have rosacea and I am very very sensitive.

This product is a cosmetica brand so it actually helps your skin as apposed to sitting on top of your skin (or something like that)

The moisturiser is calming, does not leave my skin oily and a pea size goes a long way. The bottle is quite small which made me sad but it is definitely worth it.

love the skinstitut brand - 31-05-2017 by

I have been using skinstitut for quite a while now and I love their products, for a start they are made in australia and are affordable. The cream is quite light, non greasy and is easily absorbed into my skin. I use it morning and night. During the day I team it with the skinstitut age defence 50+

Ticks all the boxes - 11-04-2017 by

This moisturiser ticks all the boxes. I have a combination skin and tend to get really dehydrated. This light cream plumps, hydrates and moisturises but absorbs quickly. I often find that to feel moisturised enough I need a heavier cream which sits for too long without absorbing. This moisturiser is the perfect day cream.

Best face moisturiser I have used to date - 08-03-2017 by

Leaves my face feeling smooth and looking fresh without makeup.

Great moisturiser - 13-02-2017 by

This product is light weight and easily absorbed! My skin is combination, with my T-zone being quite oily but my cheeks prone to dryness, so this product suits my skin perfectly in that it's not too heavy but delivers hydration where I need it.

Pricey for moisturiser but once I used it I could see why - 29-01-2017 by

I hate buying expensive moisturisers but I knew i needed to invest so I bought this one when adore beauty was having a 10% off skin care sale. I will buy it again even if its not on sale!! I live in far north queensland and it is hot an humid so every moisturiser I use slides right off my face or makes me feel hot and oily but this one seemed to sink in and I didn't get that hot sweaty feeling.

Great Product - 15-11-2016 by

I have sensitive skin that's mostly dry & sun damaged due to my freckles, this product is great because it just soaks nicely into my skin without leaving any residue & it leaves my skin feeling soft and has improved my complexion already by reducing some redness & repairing some of the sundamage on my cheekbones. Will be purchasing the full skinstitut range :)

Great all rounder - 17-07-2016 by

Lovely, hydrating and comforting. I have combination/dehydrated skin and was after an all rounder moisturiser to use over serums and at night. Great value, as is all the Skinstitute range.

love the product - 27-05-2016 by

Love it, feels lovely on my skin, only downside is the packaging,. Comes out too quick so i do have some waste, find this in the whole range. But the product its self i love.

Great Moisturiser- - 09-11-2014 by

I love this Moisturiser for my very sensitive and acne prone skin! Doesn't have a strong if any scent!!!
Downside with the new packaging is that my pump stopped working very soon after i purchased it, and now I have to take the lid off and always squeeze too much out! going through it a lot quicker than i hoped.

Great Product - 21-01-2014 by

This moisturiser is easy to apply, absorbs well and doesn't leave an oily feel after. I have a combination skin with some dry patches and this product helps the dry but doesn't cause any breakouts to the oily parts. Pleasantly surprised, one of the better products I have used and will keep using, Only down side is that you cant see when the bottle is getting empty.

Fantastic! - 29-06-2013 by

I love this product, it's for normal skin but works a treat on my combination skin. Absorbs quickly, leaves my skin feeling soft. Very lightweight yet effective. Best moisturizer I have used to date!
