Which Moisturizer Is Best for Me?

Which Moisturizer Is Best for Me?

Sensitive skin? Skin that is always dry? Cracked skin? Irritated, red skin? Damaged skin? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one dealing with some kind of skin situation. It seems that everyone we talk to has a skin problem, or at least knows somebody who does. What started as one original MooGoo cream has now grown into a range of over 40 products that help people with their skin and scalp issues, all of which are suitable and safe to use for all skin, all over, and all ages.

Not sure which one to go with? We created our creams with specific solutions in mind, so there is a method to the sizeable selection of moisturizers we offer. Here’s what each of our moisturizers has to offer so you can make a confident decision on what will suit you the best! 

Skin Milk Udder Cream

Perfect For: Dry, Dull, and Fragile Skin

Key Ingredients: Milk Protein, Rice Bran Oil, Sweet Almond Oil

RRP: from $17.99

This is the infamous Skin Milk Udder Cream, the one that started it all. You know the story, right? If not you can read all about how MooGoo came to be. This moisturizer is full of naturally nourishing and soothing oils like Rice Bran Oil, Sweet Almond, and Olive Oil that penetrate into the skin to restore skin hydration and provide all-around protection from skin stressors. We also included Aloe Vera to soothe the skin, and Milk Protein to increase skin elasticity which helps it remain youthful and supple. As with all MooGoo products, it’s free from parabens, phenoxyethanol, and other nasty chemicals commonly found in skincare.

Because of these potent soothing ingredients, many medical professionals began noting Skin Milk Udder Cream's effectiveness as a moisturizing cream for oncology patients suffering dry and damaged skin following radiation treatment and chemotherapy. Today, our Skin Milk Udder Cream is recommended by several oncologists and nurses nationwide, and its success in clinical environments.

Skin Milk Udder Cream is suitable for everyone and if you're new to our moisturizers, it's a great place to start. 

Full Cream Moisturizer

Perfect For: Dry Skin

Key Ingredients: Olive Squalane, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil

RRP: from $20.99

Our Full Cream Moisturizer was the second moisturizer we made. The difference between this and our Skin Milk Udder Cream is that our Full Cream Moisturizer is targeted at those with more flaky dry skin. It’s thicker, creamier (hence the name), and, richer as well. It features the same soothing properties as the Skin Milk Udder Cream, but with some tweaks for extra hydration.

For example, we added Coconut Oil and Olive Squalane both of which are high in the types of fatty acids that healthy skin needs and loves. This means deeper, heavy-duty hydration can be achieved! We also went the extra mile and created a proprietary fragrance blend that is phthalate free and hypo-allergenic. The combination of Apple Cider Vinegar, natural Pear and Vanilla scent makes our Full Cream Moisturizer smell like a delicious dessert. Not one that tastes so great, but even if you did decide to eat it the ingredients are so safe there’s no need to worry! 

Soothing MSM Moisturizer

Perfect For: Sensitive, Red, Itchy and Irritated Skin

Key Ingredients: MSM, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil

RRP: from $23.99

Our Soothing MSM Moisturizer is for when things have really gone array. Had a long day at the beach and resembling a tomato more than a human? Soothing MSM Moisturizer will calm and soothe your skin, and you'll even feel the heat fade from your pores. Chemical burns? Severe reactions? Or simply just extra fussy skin? Our Soothing MSM Moisturizer will help comfort any stress your skin may be under. The star ingredients in this beautiful medium-weight wonder? Olive Squalane, Allantoin and MSM.

Wait, what is MSM? MSM is organic sulphur, and stands for Methylsulfonylmethane (try saying that five times!). In the human body, MSM acts as the “glue” that holds together our amino acid chains – aka the building blocks of all tissues. Not only does it combat inflammation caused by redness (hello, sunburn), irritation, and sensitivities, but because of its positive association with collagen, it also wards off wrinkles by decreasing the breakdown of collagen beneath the skin. What a show-off! It is even believed to improve hair and nail growth, fight against cracked or thinning nails, and improve the overall health of cuticles – so we implore you to try it as a hand cream as well.

Those dealing with painful acute acne may also find relief due to its calming and anti-inflammatory properties from the likes of Sweet Almond and Coconut Oil – both high in fatty acids that healthy skin needs and irritated skin loves. 

Fast Hydrating Lotion

Perfect for: All Skin Types, Including Sensitive

Key Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Squalane, Niacinamide, and an Advanced Emulsion System for quick absorption.

RRP: $29.99

We made this moisturizer after getting a lot of requests from our customers and stockists to add a light(er)weight formula to our moisturizer range. Our classic Skin Milk Udder Cream has generally been our suggestion for those looking for an all-around restorative cream, but it seems that there are many people that prefer something even lighter, particularly when dealing with thin, very sensitive, or damaged skin. Heavier creams are great for deeply nourishing, nurturing, and protecting dry skin, but they can also take a little longer to apply, especially all over the body on a regular basis. Ain’t nobody got time for that! So, here is a time-saving lotion that will get the whole family hydrated, dressed, and out the door ASAP.

But don’t be fooled into thinking that lighter means less because the Fast-Hydrating Lotion still packs a protective punch. Using an advanced emulsion system, this one still features our favourite moisturizing oils like Sweet Almond and Olive Squalane, as well as soothing and repairing ingredients like German Chamomile and a low percentage of Niacinamide; excellent for strengthening the skin barrier. All of this in a quick-absorbing, hypo-allergenically scented lotion that rubs in s-MOO-th and absorbs quickly. 

Still Not Sure?

If you’re still feeling confused about what moisturizer is right for you that’s A-okay! We have countless ways for you to get in contact with us. Whether it's over email or through our socials, we got you (and your skin) covered. Get it?
