Ageing skin needs Retinol (vitA)

I like Aveeno and so does my 93 year old nanny!

What Ken said. Amazing stuff but it is ££££'s

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 11-May-13 11:01:18

Neal's Yard Frankincense nourishing.

I keep buying Elemis when it's on offer (goddamn you MNers) and I love the smell with a true and passionate lurve, but I don't actually think it's as good as NY.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 11-May-13 11:35:29

I buy Elemis on offer and sometimes from eBay.
Must try the Neals Yard stuff too.

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 11-May-13 11:58:03

Elemis is on massive offer somewhere at the mo' . I got an email this week. Possibly salon skincare?

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 11-May-13 12:05:30

Yes, it's salon skincare. £85 for 100ml.

I am using Clarins Hydraquench preceded by the serum. Seems to be keeping the ravages at bay

Am also a big fan of facial oils. A little goes a long way and is v effective overnight.

Also exfoliate so moisturiser can sink in to parched skin.
I could get a job in the skincare hall at John Lewis at this rate,

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 11-May-13 12:11:47

Oh yes, I slop a handful of rosehip/apricot/sweet almond/argan (whichever bottle I grab first, I'll join you in the skincare hall Grace!) when skin is very dry.

Hydraluron has entirely changed my skin and I can't rave enough about it. It is not cheap, 25 quid for a small tube but its lasted me ages and I am more glowy than I have been in ages. It is a pre moisturiser treatment (so i just use it after cleansing like a serum) and you get it from Boots. Check out blog reviews esp Beauty Mouth. It is just brilliant brilliant brilliant.

Graceparkhill Sat 11-May-13 12:15:26

We would have lovely white coats and silk scarfy type things which don't unravel!

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 11-May-13 13:16:08

grin and no orange faces like the Estee Lauder laydeeez.

Oh, rabbit has just reminded me I am also using a hyaluronic acid serum at the mo' which is lovely.

What's so great about the Elemis Marine cream? There was a poster last year raved about it and i biught it though waaayyy out of my budget but didn't seem to do much.

Nerfmother Sat 11-May-13 19:43:59

Eucerin does a fantastic range in boots.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 11-May-13 19:57:42

Mustn't suit your skin then. Roche Posay is good too from Boots

hollyisalovelyname Sat 11-May-13 20:56:03

Thanks Ken

BestIsWest Sat 11-May-13 21:13:10

I second and third the Neals Yard Frankincense. It is the best I've tried.

CeeceeBloomingdale Sun 12-May-13 07:28:09

Aldi Lacura, seriously good and about £2!

Summerloading Sun 12-May-13 07:32:07

Tried Elemis marine too, falling for all the yepe, and meh. Will check out Neal's yard,sounds great.

Summerloading Sun 12-May-13 07:32:39

yepe? Damn iPad. Hype.

I've read very negative reports about Elemis on Paula's Beautypedia website.

I have used Clinique for years- all the versions for dry and very dry skin. Such as Moisture Surge and M Defence. But have been very impressed lately with Olay Regenerist 3-point cream, unperfumed version. Got from Amazon for around £10 instead of £30 in shops.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 12-May-13 08:05:11

Clinique is horrible on my skin , like paint stripper whereas Elemis is fantastic. Depends what suits you.
