I use this one...I LOVE really really love it...but I simply cant spend that money on it anymore sad A tube lasts 3 weeks

I need something that does the same job but for less then £5

Well it's on offer, 3for2 at the mo.... wink

I know sad but dammit I caaan't <weep>

CQrrrneee Wed 20-Jul-11 00:52:24

have you tried the aldi one?

cakeoholic Wed 20-Jul-11 00:53:32

What about the KM one?

It's more than £5 though, can you stretch to £5.10? grin

CQrrrneee Wed 20-Jul-11 00:54:19

sorry but KM looks old for her age <miaow>

CQrrrneee Wed 20-Jul-11 00:55:10

Although my mum used nivea and she has good skin for her age <she's 75 but there you go>

cakeoholic Wed 20-Jul-11 00:57:30

Can you just use half the amount you use just now? That would make it last twice as long and also cost £5.10(and a half!)

What about using a few drops of something like rosehip oil at night to stretch it out and just use the S&G one in the mornings?

MilkNoSugarPlease Wed 20-Jul-11 09:02:52

Have tried Nivea, didn't like it at all-far to thick...though frankly I'll give it a go if it makes me look like KM grin wink

Have used it as sparingly as possible sad

I only use moisturiser in the morning, but am really funny about them. I used to use the Light Simple hydrating one but I went off it-think they changed the formula!

Have bought this we'll give it a go!

I just loved the radiency, energy aspect part of the S&G one sad

Just mix a little bit of highlighter in with what you are using to add a bit of glow.

i love this one.

I use a clarins face wash/exfoliatior/cleanser.

i was using a heavier type mositurizer but it was too much.

Olay Complete Care

Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream is great and very light. Not at all like the KM cream. I used it for many many years before switching up to Dermalogica.

EnSuiteShed Wed 20-Jul-11 09:58:19

Oh yeah and you can add any sort of shimmer to that with a cheap liquid highlighter.

I have a nearly full tube if you want it! Used it once and it gave me spots sad PM me your add if you're interested...

Can you stretch to 7 quid? The Olay Total Radiance in a yellowish tube is bloody fantastic!

I know you're not talking about this price range but I've just been talking about this on another thread and I honestly can't get enough of it because it's working as a day and night cream, and you only need one pump and I've been using it for a month and I'm not even half way through. I think it's going to be a really good buy plus it's the only thing that's calmed down my post-preggy/b-feeding hormonal freaky skin.

Oooooooo just bought Olay's new serum and moisturiser combined ( purple )

It's lovely and only 6 quid instead of 12 in Boots and Tescos if you buy it in Superdrug!

Seconded for Olay (or Ulay as it will forever be in my house!)
