Skinstitut Moisture Defence - Ultra Dry by Skinstitut


Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Ultra Dry Skin is a special version of the bestselling Skinstitut moisturising face cream, original Moisture Defence. This enriched formula is perfect for very dry, mature, or irritated skin types.

Skinstitut Moisture Defence - Ultra Dry benefits:

  • Intense hydration and nourishment with biomimetic peptides
  • Jawline lifting appearance
  • Improves the appearance of lines and loss of elasticity
  • Provides antioxidant protection
  • Soothing, anti-inflammatory and healing
  • Assists to relieve irritated or itchy skin with conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • May be used at night for a complete remodelling effect

Lightweight and non-pore-clogging, this product relies on nourishing Shea Butter to replenish the skin’s natural lipids. Shea Butter is a fatty acid that works to plump, soothe, and hydrate, making it a perfect skincare ingredient for eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis sufferers.

Developed with the patented anti-ageing peptide Progeline, this face cream also works to inhibit collagen and elastin breakdown and promote firming in mature skin to lift the jawline and fight wrinkles and fine lines. The cream’s intensely hydrating formula plumps and replenishes the driest of complexions.

Green Tea, Olive Oil, and Oat Extracts add anti-inflammatory, healing, and strengthening benefits to this rich anti-ageing moisturiser. Moisture Defence for Ultra Dry skin provides antioxidant protection and improves the skin barrier to relieve irritation and nourish dry, red, and flaky skin.

Moisture Defence for Ultra Dry Skin can be used daily for extreme protection, or for intense overnight replenishment.

How To Use Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Ultra Dry Skin:

  • After cleansing, dab cream around the fragile eye area, moving inwards and upwards.
  • Apply a small amount of product to the throat and rub cream upwards to the edge of your jawline. 
  • From the centre of your chin, move your fingertips up and out. 
  • Finally, apply a small amount to the centre of your forehead, massaging out and towards your hairline. 
  • If using in the morning, follow with Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+ for protection from sun damage.


For skin that is oily due to dehydration, a moisturising formula designed for water-dry skin is recommended instead of this lipid-replenishing cream. Skinstitut Moisture Defence for Oily Skin has been specially formulated to treat oiliness caused by dehydration.

All time favourite - 05-06-2018 by

I suffered quite dry skin when pregnant with my first baby and a close friend of mine who works in the beauty industry suggested I try Skinstitut products and I’m so glad she did! This moisturiser has been a life saver for me! Really hydrates my skin and keeps it feeling soft, I worried it would make my skin oily in my t-zone but it absorbs really well. I use it daily after I cleanse in the shower or after I remove my makeup and it helps a great deal with that “tight” feeling some products can leave on your skin. The absolute best moisturiser for winter but I’m a big fan of it throughout the year.

A little goes a long way - 23-05-2018 by

i have very dry skin especially coming up into winter and this product is great. You only need a little bit. i used it for a few days and i didn't have anymore dry patches or flaking on the skin which is great.

Okay product - 16-04-2018 by

I do like this product to use on dry patches however, to use alone during the day for a moisturiser to make my skin look moist it isn’t enough . It’s quiet thick but goes on thin . I would use for patches only and for under makeup . Prefer the normal skin for a fresh skin day look .

Loving it! - 12-04-2018 by

I found my skin was drying out a bit with the skinstitut products so added this in and am so glad I did. Great hydrating qualities, but not heavy and hasn't caused any breakouts or dermatitis (I have sensitive skin). And a little goes a long way. Love it!

My go to moisturiser - 06-02-2018 by

I love this moisturiser, occasionally I switch it up but I always end up re-purchasing this product. I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. It's not super greasy and absorbs really quickly. They did change the formula a couple of years ago (didn't notice the change per say, I only know as I couldn't get my hands on it for a few months) and during the change the name went from Dry Skin to Ultra Dry. It still feels like it's just for dry skin, I sometimes do get super ultra dry skin and wish they had another moisturiser for us girls who get really flaky throughout the winter!

My Go-to Moisturiser - Especially for Winter! - 29-01-2018 by

This is my favourite moisturiser for my dry, dehydrated blemish-prone skin.

It's nice and thick but goes on very easily and feels very comfortable and hydrating. Never breaks me out. Works well mixed with the Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+, other serums/treatments and under makeup. So it's perfect for day or night use. It's a great moisturiser that contains good, high-end ingredients but doesn't go as far as to break the bank for me.

Okay but not mind-blowing - 23-01-2018 by

I really thought this would be a holy grail type moisturiser but it more of an average moisturiser. It does keep my face moisturised for the most part and I like how quickly it absorbs but not my favourite.

My go to moisturiser - 18-01-2018 by

This moisturiser is really lovely and nourishing on my dry skin. It soothes any irritation that I sometimes get having sensitive skin, and makes my skin feel really soft. I have tried several moisturisers and this is the best one I've tried by far.

A great night moisturiser - 09-01-2018 by

I love to pop this moisturiser on before I go to bed, as it's much thicker than the Moisture Defence for Normal skin.

Best moisturiser for my dry skin! - 22-11-2017 by

This stuff is amazing! I have tried soo many moisturizers as my skin can go through different stages of oiliness and dryness. I started using the normal skin moisture defense and found it worked until my skin didn't feel it was getting enough moisture. I switched to the ultra dry moisture defense and haven't had any issues for months! I love this stuff - and it lasts forever as you only need a small amount!

Great product! - 30-10-2017 by

I have been through a few moisturisers trying to find the perfect one for my skin for when I have those days of extreme dryness. I have been using this product for a few months now and I absolutely love it! You only need a small amount so it lasts a really long time, it smells divine and it absorbs into the skin well. Definitely my go to product from now on!

Great moisturiser - 24-10-2017 by

This moisturiser is fabulous on my normal to dry skin, which is just starting to show some slight signs of aging. I have fair skin and red hair, which has some sun related damage.The light weight formula of this product penetrates well into my skin without feeling greasy and provides excellent hydration. I use it at night in conjunction with several other Skinstitut products and have definitely noticed a difference in reducing my skin's level of dryness.

I was introduced to this range three years ago and have loved it ever since. - 20-10-2017 by

The products are good for my mature skin as they go on smoothly and my face does not feel as if it has 'layers' of product. I have been happy with everything I have tried in the range and would recommend it for mature dry sensitive skin. I have medium coloured skin with natural mouse brown hair.

Great range of skincare - 04-10-2017 by

I love the Skinstut range of products due to trying them at a laser clinic. The Laser Aid is also a great product for after sun and using that with the moisturizer makes your face feel absolutely soft and hydrated


This moisturiser is amazing for all skin types - even oily! it makes your skin baby soft with a soothing effect on any redness/irritation. Love putting this on at night, gives me the confidence to not wear makeup. recommend it to anyone. works every time.

LOVE IT - 14-08-2017 by

I've been using this product for about 7 weeks now and absolutely love the way it leaves my skin looking and feeling .. definitely one I will continue to use ❤️Love it

Fabulous Moisturiser - 23-07-2017 by

I've been using this moisturiser for almost 12 months and love it. It's hydrating, smells good and feels great on my skin. Highly recommend to those with dry skin.

Great product for mature skin. - 19-07-2017 by

This is a great product for a great price. Makes my face feel soft and the it is easy to apply as it is not greasy.

Good value and it works! - 23-11-2016 by

This works well on my dry skin. Feel so much hydrated especially in winter.

Ticks all the boxes - 22-07-2016 by

This moisturizer leaves my skin so soft and hydrated.
