By Beauty Bay Thirst Class Rich Moisturiser

 I was hunting for a new, really rich moisturiser a couple of weeks ago when I came across the aptly named Thirst Class Rich Moisturiser from By Beauty Bay.

If you didn't already know By Beauty Bay is retailer Beauty Bay's own brand with a focus on vegan and cruelty free ideals and effective formulas with minimal ingredients.
I wanted something really hydrating, gentle and unscented to use both at the end of my pregnancy and while nursing a newborn and this one seems to tick all the boxes.

Perfect for dehydrated skin, Thirst Class is enriched with colloidal oatmeal and oat lipid. Colloidal oatmeal soothes and hydrates while oat lipid is ceramide-rich, helping skin to absorb and retain moisture.
Served up in a simple, screw top jar, the moisturiser is soft and buttery. In fact, the texture reminds me a bit of Lurpak that's been left on the kitchen counter for half an hour. Like all of the By Beauty Bay products, it's designed to be non-comedogenic, so while it's thick and gorgeous, it's not going to clog pores or feel cloying on the skin. A little bit of this does go a very long way, so if you try it I'd recommend using a little less than you think you might need and adding more of required. I also find that using too much does result in a bit of pilling, so I make sure to apply it sparingly and it's absolutely fine.

The inoffensive, unfragranced formula paired with a soothing, hydrating effect makes Thirst Class ideal for use after retinols and actives. I imagine I'm going to really enjoy it in the colder months too when cool air and heating really tend to dry my skin out.
By Beauty Bay Thirst Class is £7 at Beauty Bay. I'm keen to try some other bits from the brand and I think my next purchase will be the Butter Cup Cleansing Balm, which looks perfect for a first/ makeup and SPF removing cleanse.
