I love Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream. But it is £££. Can anyone recommend something like it for cheaps? Or am I just dreaming that such a thing exists?

Apologies if this has been asked a bazillion times sad

What is cheap to you? Some peoples cheap is under a fiver while others could be up to £20, big difference.

Nivea Creme is very rich (too rich for me actually and makes me break out - not terribly but it isn't great). My mum always swore by Astral cream and she used it all her life and looked a lot younger than she actually was so think it must have done some good!

Sorry, yes, I should have said - the Hauschka is about £16-20 on Ebay. So under £10?

I've been ill and dehydrated and have been using Aldi's Night cream as a day cream, it seems to be working well.

I used to use Elemis Marine Cream, stopped the middle of last year, threw a few cheap products, recommended on here, into my routine and if anything, my skin looks better.

Going to add another vote for Astral. My mum swore by it and has youthful skin at 70. I used it in my teens and early 20s and I think I have pretty good skin at 40+.

The Nivea Q10 night cream is lush. I'd definitely use it as a day cream if you don't usually use spf.

The new aldi caviar night and day cream. Fabulous smile

I love the old school Nivea creme in the blue pot, smother it on at night. I have quite greasy skin and no breakouts / doesn't make it any more greasy.

Have tried a range of rich creams recently for my dry sensitive skin - price ranging up to about 20-30 pounds. Best I tried has been Nivea soft (white pot). Absolutely fantastic and very cheap.

Old school blue Nivea is the richest I've found.

I am confused by all the many Niveas. sad They are on 3 for 2 at Boots, though, so maybe I can try a couple!

The blue one - is this the one that comes in a shoe polish container? Or the one in the tube? Or are those actually the same thing in different packets?

The soft and the Q10 - are these different creams? If so, does anyone know the difference?

The Astral cream: it says 'all over' on the label. Is this a face and body cream?

I love Eucerin for my dry skin. Not that cheap (in the UK) - about £18 -but always in the 3 for 2 in Boots.

Nivea in the little blue shoe polish pot.

Very rich, makes me look 20! <hopeful >

It doesn't quite cost your price point, but if you apply girly Boots maths (3 for 2 calculations!) Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Radiance Day Cream would be just under a tenner and is really good rich stuff with an SPF!

Nivea in the blue pot. I've gone from Hashuka Rose cream to this. There's also a lighter version called Nivea Soft in a white tub.

You can get small version of both for a quid each.

HooseRice Thu 11-Feb-16 13:06:52

Another vote for Nivea. Blue tub for night, nivea soft for day. I think actual moisturiser matters less than your cleansing and toning routine.

CadiM Thu 11-Feb-16 13:07:27

I like the classic Nivea (dark blue pot) or Astral at night but Aveeno is much better for me during the day (it absorbs well).

You should try the Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser

Nivea blue bot is very rich, too rich for the day.i use it at night mostly.

I use manuka honey a lot, I use it as a mask in the morning then wash off, my skin is lovely. Its cheap and natural.

The Dr Organics range in Holland and Barrett is really nice. I use the Rose Otto night cream. It is usually buy one, get one half price so works out around £7.50 per pot. I don't use the day cream as it doesn't have an spf.

Aldi night cream (the Q10 one)
