So many to choose from what do you like to use and why ?

Coconut oil from H&B it's not too expensive, lasts forever as you only need a tiny bit, and works wonders for me.
been told it's taken 5 years off me and only been doing it for 10 days.
I'm 50 and smoke, so if it works for me it will work for anybody

Astral, have given up trying other expensive creams because this is brilliant. I also use cheap face washes. St Ives sensitive scrub, palmers foaming cleanser then boots traditional glycerine and rose water.

I loove this one:

Bit of a niche choice perhaps, but it smells amazing.

Lancome hydra zen
Haven't had dry skin since I started using it!

Nivea creme (dark tub) or Astral.

Dr organic olive oil day cream (you.can get it in Holland and Barrett). Everything else I've ever tried gives me spots. I have oily skin with a dry nose!

This won't help at all, but as I have even tempered skin all the following have been fine for me:

Boots Protect and Perfect
Superdrug Naturally Radiant
Aldi Lacura cheapie stuff
Bodyshop vitamin E
Virgin Vie (although that is no longer available)

I have combination skin BTW and the only stuff I have never got on with is Nivea as it is just too greasy for me.

Roche posay
Body shop vit e moisturiser and serum

I love Astral too. Seems to be one of the few things that doesn't sting my eyes.

The body shop new oils of life sleep cream is divine. It has really improved my skin.

I recently bought some Cetaphil for the first time. I really like it - it's light, absorbs really quickly and has virtually no scent.

goshhhhhh Fri 15-Apr-16 17:50:59

I've started making my own using the naturally thinking base. It's working well & my own face oil. I really liked the balance me stuff but quite expensive

Nivea Q10 night cream.

Silverstreaks Fri 15-Apr-16 17:55:30

I'm using this Baobab one. It's light but incredibly moisturising, non sticky, non greasy and just amazing.

No instant gratification though as you'll need to order it from Korea but it's definitely worth the two week wait.

I use the Baobab moisturising toner from the same company too.

Ooh yes Hydra Zen rocks. Also Eve Lom TLC radiance.

I have used multiple products over the years and used to use very expensive products. Now I use Aldi face cream at £1.99 a pop and it is as good as any of them.

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine cream does it for me.

I have the Aldi Caviar day and night creams. They absorb well, are not greasy and don't react on my skin. Plus they are cheap !

Blueberry234 Fri 15-Apr-16 19:08:00

ESPA 24 hour balancing cream

treaclesoda Fri 15-Apr-16 19:09:24

Aldi Caviar day and night creams. I've tried all sorts, expensive and cheap and these are the best I have ever tried.

sergeantmajor Fri 15-Apr-16 19:09:28

I find that Neals Yard Frankinsense cream makes a visible difference to my skin

applecatchers36 Fri 15-Apr-16 19:13:02
