I'm planning to ask for advice about skincare products and get colour matched for foundation. My skin is dry and dehydrated, fine lines and slight pigmentation around eyes. Any products that you think would be definitely worth trying?

They have just sold our to Estée Lauder. Such a shame.

Buffet is lovely. I really like retinol but my skin is not very sensitive so it doesn't react badly to it! Enjoy - I think their stuff is wonderful.

Marula oil for dry dehydrated skin.

Gus, I'm a bit scared of retinol but will see what they say! I have heard good things about Buffet so will find out more

There's both Retinol and retinoid. The latter is much milder, I can use it every day.

namechange that's really bad news they had strong ethics on not testing on animals I guess there is a chance they will now sell in China now they have sold out to EL. I've just emailed them but not hopeful.

I got Serum foundation, hyaluronic acid and matrixyl thanks to a very helpful gentleman in the store. Will report back smile

Just in case anyone is interested regarding the animal testing issue. Deciem responded and commented EL bought a minority share and they have no control over Operations so good news.
