Just that, really. Mid-40s. Decent skin, but want to keep it as fresh as poss. So many recommendations out there - just wondered if anyone had any strong views. Don't want to pay silly money, but happy to go higher than Olay offerings etc.

Haven't heard Lacura or Cera di Cupra so will investigate. Many thanks for ideas. Easy to get stuck in a rut and I think probably good for skin to change products from time to time anyway.

The Lidl anti - wrinkle Q10 at £1.99 a pot is seriously the best night cream I've used!! Non greasy and not over perfumed like so many of them are. Will never spend ££ on night cream again..

Lacura is Aldi I think, it's a good range. I use L'Oreal Age Perfect (gold packaging), it's for 'mature skin' but I'm only 41 and use it and it does a brilliant job.

Origins night a mins.. I think that's what it's called. It's in a brown tub. The best I've ever tried.

Yeah Lacura is the aldi q10 cream range, dirt cheap for a great moisturiser. Cera di cupra is an Italian cream an 80something lady in tesco who looked around 60 recommended it to me and I've had great comments on hoe fresh my skin looks since using it!
Alongside either of these I'd recommend an exfoliating treatment which the revive cream is for me but its £££ so I get samples off eBay for a quarter of the price..look up other glycolic acid treatments

I'm finding the Olay creams, the cheaper products in the range are very good. I am your age.

I like waitrose's baby bottom butter. It's about £2.50 a pot, and absorbs really well overnight.

Ps I'm 40

I have been using the aldi soy serum at night and its fantastic and about £4

God all this Aldi bargain priced stuff sounds great. No Aldi near me, but am going to seek one out!
