Can anyone recommend an anti-aging skincare routine for me?

Elemis pro-collagen marine cream. But it is £££.

Bumping this thread in the hope that someone can recommend an excellent anti-aging moisturiser that is NOT £££, preferably just £s smile

Clinique Moisture Surge for very dry skin. I find that with very dry skin, which I definitely have (am 38), having a fabulous moisturiser suited to my skin makes me look younger (plumping up skin etc). I also use Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair serum which I think is miraculous. Not cheap but worth the investment I think.

I'm going to try this Olay Regenerist serum (Amazon) when my current serum (also an Olay cheapy from as its got good reviews and its a good price on Amazon

These are really good!

The Olay Regenerist stuff is v good and often to be found on offer. Somebody on here recommended Superdrug's Vitamin E oil though and it is excellent for overnight use and only costs pennies too. The moisturiser is fine as well, for the price, but I don't like the eyecream. Will deffo continue to buy the oil.

I'm also mid 30's and used the blue lid Nivea, I've now switched to the aldi - yep that's right aldi one for mature skin, it's £2, and I really feel like my skins improved!

I love Dermalogica's intensive moisture - is rich but not thick and has helped my sensitive post baby skin. Is around £20 for a small size but it lasts ages. I buy professional sizes via eBay - bought last one in June last year for £30 and still have half of it left. Is one of the original Dermalogica products - forget all the gimmicky Age smart stuff they do- this is the best.

Boots time delay products are on offer right now. Serum is about £9 and moisturiser about £8. The ingredients are fair cop.

Or soap and glory are buy one get one half price in boots. I haven't tried their moisturiser, but their serum is dead good. The serum is £20 and moisturiser about a tenner.

Thanks, had bad reaction to Dermalogica and Olay previously. t
The soap and glory night cream was good but reacted to the day cream.

Avene seem quite reasonable price wise so after spending all morning reading the reviews think im going to give them a go.

My routine has sorted out my skin - Avene gel cleanser followed by La Roche Posay Cicaplast moisturiser. The moisturiser is fab - it's very soothing and moisturising but also antibacterial, so perfect for my dry but clogged skin. And after years of thinking daily exfoliation was key, I think simple decent cleansing works best for me, no scrubbing, no harsh chemicals.

the best anti-ageing factor you can include in your skin care is a decent SPF in your moisturiser - Avene/LRP have v good ones.
