Lightweight but effective and not expensive face moisturiser?
Looking for a lightweight but effective face moisturiser (i.e. one that feel heavy on your skin or leave it feeling tacky, but not an 'oil free' one) that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I currently use Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream, which I like a lot apart from the price. Any alternatives you lovely people can suggest?
I'm trying out a Superdrug one that Sali Hughes recommended a couple of weeks ago. Erm glyco phyto age something. It's pink which I don't love but I like the feel of my skin after it. Good makeup base too (I think, don't wear much). Will find the link.
This Nivea Q10 one is my absolute favourite. Never need to buy it full price - somewhere always has 2 for £10 or £12 going. Light, great base for make-up, non-scented, lasts a while - and apparently fending off wrinkles! And being spf 15 is great too (though perhaps all good moisturisers have spf in them now).
I use the Lidl hyalauronic acid anti-wrinkle moisturiser. It's the nicest moisturiser I've ever used and it's really cheap. I live in fear of them discontinuing it so I keep about 4 tubes in the house.
