Looking for a good moisturiser for very dry skin? Help!

Nivea in the blue tub. From a convert who has suffered years of dry skin!

Body or face? Aveeno is amazing for the body

Blue nivea here too, very dry skin and it is fab

I have super dry and sensitive skim with mild psoriasis and swear by Astral as a night cream. For day Clarins Hydra Quench is good enough and not too greasy so that makeup doesn't slip off.

Blue nivea too. I have greasy skin but I use it as a night cream.

I use Simple Regeneration on my face, Aveeno on my body. I have very dry and sensitive skin, but this combination works really well for me.

Regular exfoliating also makes a huge difference, and I occasionally use facial oil before bed.

I love Boots essential moisture

Boots No7 range!

Physiogel with 3 drops of Rosehip oil. Works wonders.

Nivea in the blue pot here too. Has changed my life, skin wise. I wish I'd known about it 20 years ago.

What's the difference between the blue pot and the white pot?

White is Nivea Soft - I think there were a few posts about people having sensitivity to the Soft one though.

What about SteamCream?

Tesco sell it (I had a quick sample of it, I don't like lavender, but I thought if its nice, I could try and overcome the revulsion)

It is nice (and vegan) hurrah but it is too lavendery for me.

You can get it much cheaper online

Allergenics from Holland and Barret, best thing I've found for dry skin.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 10-May-15 08:15:53

Steam cream stinks, and I like lavender!!grin It goes off very quickly too and their customer service is dreadful ime

<waves to petitgrain, fancy seeing you on a skin care threadwink >

Dr Organics Aloe Vera. Best cream I've ever used (and I've used a LOT!)

Bursarymum Sun 10-May-15 08:22:48

Elemis Marine Cream. It's very expensive though so the kind of thing you might ask for as a birthday treat. It is excellent. The other moisturisers they do are cheaper and also very good though.

I was always a fan of MD Formulations but unfortunately that is no longer available in the UK.

Vichy Normaderm Anti ageing..its fab on my combination skin

Nivea in a blue pot broke me out.

Aveena do a good one for dry skin, as do Origins.
