Micellar water is amazing and you get it from the pound shops. I use Original Source toner, can't remember how much it cost but it lasted me ages (like a year or so) so however much it was, it was worth it. Body shop vitamin E moisturiser is fab and if your budget can stretch to it they do a facial peel thing (£18 for a largish bottle but you use it once a week and only a small amount) and it makes you skin feel amazing and really glow. Nivea and Dove moisturisers are really good too. Quite thick so best as a night cream.
This range from Superdrug is great on a budget. Lots of makeup artist/columnists like Sali Hughes etc rate it highly too. I like the hot cloth cleanser and the glycolic toner (which is apparently a dupe for the Pixi glow)
Oh that Garnier Rose looks lovely and I've lots to choose from now. I think I'll just have to try them all over the next year to find the right one.
I did used to use Nivea, but it was a bit greasy and felt wrong so I stopped using it and didn't replace. Got so fed up of crepey dry skin so I'm going to stick with it this time for your brilliant suggestions.
