Mid 40s, combination skin with crepey cheeks. All suggestions gratefully received!

Cleansing balm (just finished Clinique TDDO balm and like it but would like to try something else)
Hydrating anti ageing serum - anyone tried the Boots Lift and Luminate?
Eye cream (anti puffy/anti fine lines)
Primer with SPF that doesn't go greasy (yes, Laura Mercier, I'm looking at you)

I used Lancôme most of my adult life but felt recently my skin was dry and more red than usual. I switched to Bare Minerals skin care and I actually can't believe the difference in my skin. Pores are smaller, dry areas are gone and the eye cream is lovely. I bought it all on LookFantastic and got a good discount.

I like Elemis pro collagen cleansing balm

I got a trial size of skyn Icelandic eye cream in the m&s beauty advent calendar and have already repurchased as it has sorted out my puffy eyes brilliantly

The Emma Hardie morninga cleansing balm is amazing if not a tad pricey. I alternate between that and body shop camomile cleansing butter.

Thanks for the ideas! I'm too scared to even google the price of Marine Cream as I know it's megabucks. grin

I get the elemis products from QVC when they're on a tsv - I never pay full price for them smile

No 7 primer is good

What's a tsv?

Is there a particular No 7 primer, or is there just one?

TSV is today's special value, there's one every day from midnight, and the elemis ones are usually worth getting
