Found! The BEST Organic Creams for Dry Skin

This article may use affiliate links. Eluxe Magazine only links to products we trust.

By Diane Small

Testing dozens upon dozens of beauty products every month is a tough job, but somebody has to do it–and that’s part of why I adore my post as a staff writer for Eluxe!  The whole team is inundated with organic beauty products every month, and we really do try and test each product we get.

In the winter, when the central heating is blasting, anything that’s creamy gets snapped up right away–lip balms, eye creams, face creams, body creams…they all disappear within a day.

There have been many balms, creams, oils and other potions we’ve tried, and after doing extensive research (okay, after trying a load of products) we’ve compiled what we think are the best organic creams for dry skin – and please note: none of these reviews were paid for whatsoever!

Best for the Face

Trilogy Age Proof Night Cream

Trilogy’s rich facial cream moisturises the thin and sensitive skin on the face and around the eyes. Using the power of concentrated horse chestnut, argan and sweet almond oil extracts, this gentle, unscented cream works with the skin’s own restorative abilities to  fight against fine lines. Comes in a lovely recyclable glass  bottle, too!

Trevarno Overnight Replenishing Cream

It sounds Italian, but this organic brand is handmade in small batches in Cornwall, the UK. Perfect for all skin types, this little purple pot combines the calming power of lavender with a unique blend of naturally beautifying essential oils including frankincense, rosewood and cedarwood. Meant to nourish and rejuvenate the skin on your face and neck whilst you sleep, our only complaint about this cream is that the jar it comes in is too small!

AEOS Enriching Pink Moisturiser

We’re all a bit crazy about this organic and biodynamic brand. AEOS uses the powers of not only essential oils and plant extracts, but also the energies of gems and crystals to deeply hydrate and soften the skin. This line is for those who don’t mind spending some time on their skincare routines: the moisturizer is the third and final step of the AEOS Skincare Sequence. But it does great things to  environmentally damaged or tired skin or skin  exposed to air-conditioned environments. No surprises that it was Natural Health Magazine’s Beauty Awards winner last year.

Kahina Giving Beauty Eye Cream

The skin around the eyes is the most delicate part of the face, and is prone to dehydration. For that reason, it’s essential to keep it moisturised, no matter what the age. Kahina’s award winning eye cream contains Vitamin E, Argan Oil and Green Tea to boost collagen production and reduce puffiness. It also aids in moisture retention, making the delicate area appear firmer and smoother.

Best for Mature Skin

By ‘mature’ we mean ‘over 35’ here. It’s around that age that skin slows down its regeneration of collagen, so a bit of extra help may be needed to help restore skin’s balance and hydration.

Arbu Black Caviar Cream

A full 86% of this thick cream’s ingredients are 100% organic, and the ingredient list includes rose, camellia and jasmine oils, which contribute a heady floral scent to the product, and of course, natural caviar extract, rich in nourishment. This Bulgarian concoction is a luxurious, decadent cream that comes housed in a black glass pot. Over time, the cream claims to restore not only moisture, but the skin’s youthful contours. So highly recommended, we chose to sell it on our site!

Subtle Energies Mogra Rejuvenating Gold Cream

Containing Mogra oil, Indian rose extract and 24 karat gold leaf, this decadent cream is well worth the price. Mogra stimulates cell regrowth, while rose hydrates and balances the skin. Real gold is used for its anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties. When blended together, these ingredients result in a unique Ayurvedic cream that restores skin’s natural balance, smells amazing and gives skin a bit of a glow. Their Rose and Cardamom hand cream is also a winner in our books–in just seconds, it stops hands from looking all lizardy.

1001 Remedies Soin Millenaire

With a delicate and hydrating texture, this 97% natural anti aging cream is based on extracts of maitake, and stimulates collagen production to ensure your face results in a smoother, plumper finish. Best for dry skin, you can use this both day and night. The pure, plant based ingredients smell refreshing on the skin, and clinical trials show that after just 4 weeks, skin elasticity increases by 11%, firmness by 12% and wrinkles are reduced by 14% – all without surgery!

Best for the Body

Sometimes, when your skin feels so tight it’s as though you’ve outgrown it, you just need to slather yourself from head to foot with something rich and fragrant.

MuLondon Rose, Rosehip and Rosemary Cream

This 100% organic moisturiser based on shea and coconut butter that’s been infused with delicious smelling rose otto oil, rosehip extracts and rosemary, which acts antioxidants. It  pampers, balances and nourishes dry, irritated and sensitive skin, leaving you in a silky film of softness, whilst leaving you smelling like a summer garden.

Rahua Body Lotion

I love how this feels on my skin, and how it smells! A little bit like vanilla ice cream, in my opinion – creamy and fresh, but not too sweet. Full of exotic ingredients like quinoa, rahua ungurahua oil, Sacha Inchi oil and other all natural ingredients, Rahua’s new body lotion was designed to moisturise and repair dried-out, flaky skin we get  from environmental damage. This antioxidant rich formula helps skin recover and maintain elasticity, and in my own experience, it smoothes and softens from the first application.

Green People Nurture  Body Cream

This rich hand and body cream is not only free of harsh, chemical ingredients that could damage your skin, it’s also almost 100% organic. The squalane from olive and shea provide deep moisture for thirsty skin, and bergamot lends a lightly citrusy, floral scent to this hardworking all-over cream that works for all skin types.

 

Pure Skin Food White Chocolate Body Mousse

This luxurious brown glass jar is packed with a product that’s become a cult favourite, and with good reason! It not only hydrates dry skin, but it regenerates it, too, thanks to the high concentration of certified organic healing oils like magnolia, argan, grape seed, sunflower and almond oils. But the best part is the way this smells…chocoholics will be transported to a creamy, dreamy place every time they apply this rich formula.

 

Best for Hands & Heels

No matter what your skin type is, you’ve surely suffered from wrinkly hands, cracked heels and flaky cuticles. Here are the all-natural solutions for those hydration issues.

Bamford Organic Jasmine Hand & Body Lotion

A favourite of Kate Moss’s, this rich formula smells divine, deeply moisturizes, and rejuvenates the skin on your hands thanks to its free radical-fighting antioxidants that promote cell renewal for more vibrant, youthful-looking skin. Naturally perfumed with the brand’s unique blend of sweet Jasmine, tangy Orange Blossom and earthy Cedarwood oils, this luxurious yet lightweight formula relaxes the mind and lifts your mood.

Ruby Red Shea Butter Peppermint Foot Cream

As rich and creamy as the inside of an After Eight chocolate, this also smells as delicious! We love this balm for not only feet, but elbows and shins, too. It’s super rich and thick, and the mint oil seems to be there more there for the scent than its cooling effect–it’s far gentler than we expected.

Best Balms for Really Dry Skin

Elbows, knuckles and shins are the flakiest areas on our bodies in winter. So what’s the solution to keeping these parts–which have very few sebaceous glands–soft and supple?

True Organic Sweden All You Need Is Me Cream

This Vaseline-like gel is the better, organic ‘Eight Hour’ cream. It can be used on just about anything you’d put Vaseline on: elbows, cracked heels, chapped lips, or dry skin–but unlike Vaseline, there’s no petroleum products in here, just all natural goodness that your thirsty skin will be happy to absorb.

Karmameju Calm Balm 02

This multifunctional balm is fairly solid to the touch and smells gently of chamomile, lavender and kanuka oil. It’s perfect for the whole family: men can use it on their faces after shaving; babies can have their nappy rashes soothed by it, and it can smooth the dry skin of everyone of all ages. It even works as a lip balm to cure chapped lips! A must-have in any bathroom cabinet.

Weleda Skin Food

So rich it’s almost gooey, this lemon scented product is more like honey than cream–maybe that’s why they call it ‘skin food’. But it’s seriously hydrating, refreshingly scented, and at only around €7 a tube, it’s perfectly affordable. Personally, I slather this on my elbows every winter. It’s so gentle, it’s even suitable for sufferers of psoriasis and eczema.

 

Best Beauty Bargains

Neal’s Yard Frankincense Hydrating Cream

this purely all-natural, super-rich cream is the perfect product to slather on to protect your skin from the signs of ageing. It boosts elasticity, has collagen-stimulating properties, and absorbs thoroughly and easily. Neals Yard has a whole collection of Frankincense products that are totally worth checking out, especially since your purchase helps  support the livelihoods of women in Kenya who harvest the Frankincense.

Pacifica French Lilac Body Butter

This gorgeous, smooth cream is based on Shea Butter and will leave you smelling like a French garden in springtime! All its ingredients are naturally derived, including the Lilac Oil that gives this heavily hydrating product its feminine scent. In fact, its scent is so delightful, it could double up as a perfume! Sold in many health food stores for under €20 for a 250 ml tube, the dual function of  this body butter makes it a real bargain.

    These are some good organic moisturizers. I tried few from these with my daily use cream. The result was the best I ever expected. My skin looks well hydrated, is soft, glowing and the dryness disappeared. Thanks for sharing.

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties.

However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.
