At the moment its M&S Royal Jelly & Honey there is a night cream and a light SPF face cream. I use Aldi Lacura Serum. I am 32 and fairly good skin, oily T Zone and monthly jawline spots on occasion so I tend not to put too much product on this area. I don't tend to use eye cream.

Ester Lauder daywear. I'vector sensitive stroppy skin (not a technical term!) which occasionally breaks out in response to things it doesn't like.

PurpleDaisies Tue 26-Jan-16 10:10:30

I'vector?! I've got sensitive skin is what that should say.

Nabootique Tue 26-Jan-16 10:13:41

I'm not loyal. I'm a face cream ho and have 15 - 20. If I had to pick only one though I would say Clinique Moisture Surge, which I'd never thought about before but it's good to know for future reference!

Nabootique Tue 26-Jan-16 10:14:41

Oh, normal to combination (t-zone can get oily sometimes), prone to dehydration (smoker and I eat too much salt).

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream. It's so light, I love it.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Tue 26-Jan-16 10:15:44

Normal, prone to dry skin.

Body Shop Vitamin E Cream. I have used it on and off (mostly on) for decades (the Intense version now I'm ancient), it's as good if not better than any expensive brand I've tried. I'm 46 with dry skin but most people seem to think I'm a good decade younger.

Korrs rose. Its lovely for sensitive dry skin and It's the only one that doesn't sit on my skin.

turkeyboots Tue 26-Jan-16 10:18:10

I stick to Olay but various things from the range. Seem to react to anything else. Have dry very sensitive skin.

L'Oreal Age Perfect Day and Night cream. Estée Lauder syrum.

MiniCooperLover Tue 26-Jan-16 10:28:45

Serum even ...

Hellojoe Tue 26-Jan-16 10:45:59

Love Clinique moisture surge, perfect for my dry combination skin

handslikecowstits Tue 26-Jan-16 10:50:15

Clean and Clear Oil Free Moisturiser
Amazing stuff. Can't use anything scented. Doesn't make me oily or bring me out in a rash.


La Roche Posay Redermic at night

38 years old with normal to combination skin really.

ouryve Tue 26-Jan-16 10:53:03

I have very sensitive skin, prone to both flakiness and zits and reactive to far too many things for comfort, but otherwise looking pretty good for my 46 years. I stick with the plain yellow clinique moisturiser. Only needs a tiny bit, so it lasts for ages.

Annarose2014 Tue 26-Jan-16 10:53:11

I'm a ho as well, but if you put a gun to my head Olay Complete spf30. It's the one I've repurchased most often. It's a good price and it's not greasy.

I'll throw anything on my face as long as it's got an spf.

mowglik Tue 26-Jan-16 10:53:26

I use three but my favourite is Elemis pro-collagen marine cream. I also use a ceramide gel for days when my skin is feeling sensitive and a honey based cream when my skin is feeling dry

Annarose2014 Tue 26-Jan-16 10:53:46

Should add my skin is normal and non reactive.

cressetmama Tue 26-Jan-16 11:15:29

Bioderma Hydrabio range: always the serum, sometimes followed by the moisturiser which comes in light and heavier weights (winter/summer). I'm 59, normal skin which can occasionally surprise with a tantrum. Mid-price, similar to LRP I guess. Hyaluronic is in pretty much everything in the range and it really works for me but I have to get it online. No UK retail presence.

Not religiously loyal, but there ar a few products i have been using for a while and no plans to change.

Trilogy rose hip oil
Aldi Lacura serum
Nivea light moisturising day cream SPF 15 (for dark winter months when I need less SPF)
Biore factor 50 facial sunscreen - the best EVER, not greasy/chalky. I wear it from about March-November every day.

I've tried many expensive face creams that I quite liked, but none enough to fork our 30/40/50 quid+ for on a regular basis, tbh.

SchnitzelVonKrumm Tue 26-Jan-16 11:23:50

Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is lovely but my skin was no better using it than Vit E cream!

In the past I've never been that loyal but I've been using Aldi hyaluronic gel every evening and in the morning my skin feels lovely and soft. It was a special so they only do it every 6 months or so but I reckon the bottle will last at least a year. In winter I'm using it in the morning as well but come summer I'll probably switch to my Nivea because of the sunscreen.

My skin is normal and non-reactive. FINALLY seeing the benefits of having greasy skin as a teenager - normal relatively wrinkle-free skin in middle-age!
