My new skincare Philosophy

I recently decided to take the plunge and invest in some decent skincare. Philosophy had been a brand I had heard raved about on blogs and YT, however I wasn't sure about it's availability in the UK. This was all until recently I was delighted to see a big new display in Debenhams. 
Philosophy 'Purity' one-step facial cleansing wash - Debenhams, £17 for 240ml
To sample the brand I decided on the Purity one-step facial cleanser. I am quite sceptical of brands that claim to cleanse/tone/moisturise/removemakeup/eveneyemakeup but I can honestly say that this one lives up to at least some of its claims. This is undoubtedly the first facewash that just melts away my full makeup without leaving anything behind, even eye makeup. Despite this I have a bit of a soap-in-eyes phobia so I will be buying an eye makeup remover, it is nice to know this works though, in the case of an emergency! It is a moisturising wash, however there is still a definite need for a moisturiser after- saying that I do suffer from dry skin. I haven't noticed this breaking me out in the past 2 weeks of use, nor particularly clearing up my skin. I could be going through a purging phase though, overall I am very impressed!
The lady at Debenhams saw me eyeing up the rest of the skincare range and kindly filled my bag with some more goodies.
Hope in a Jar moisturiser: Generous sample that I have now finished. Seriously considering buying the full size of this although it did sting my eyes a little, however this could just have been my clumsiness.
I haven't used my Eye Hope eye cream or The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash yet, I will include them in another post when I get round to it.

To finish off my new facial routine, I need some advice from the beauty-savvy girls that read this. Can any of you recommend me any amazing moisturiser suitable for normal to dry skin? I don't mind a splurge!
