Currently using Fade Out with 25spf. I've used it before and liked it and my skin looks fine, but it feels dry, tight and itchy. Especially round my mouth. I'm mid 40s, not many wrinkles but quite oily and spot prone. I'm happy to spend up to about£20. Can anyone recommend a really lovely feeling moisturiser for winter months? Also after a good lip balm to use under or instead of lipstick.
Got one yesterday in Superdrug. It is the Simple one. A pot rather than a cream - has an spf of 15 and was £2.99 Bargain! Felt lovely on - I got the Superdrug Vitamin E night cream too (not quite so cheap but still...)
Are you looking for something rich or light OP? It sounds as though you have combination skin. I use Simple - they do an SPF one and also one without which is lighter - I find they sit really well on my skin - but I don’t know if those would be too light for you, if you’ve got dry bits to deal with ...?
Moisturiser can be the cheapest thing you spend on wrt skincare. The important bit is the cleansing and serum etc.
That said I love L'Occitane Divine and NY Frankincense. But I also really rate Nivea Q10 anti wrinkle, £4.99 from places like Savers. It is just as good as anything else.Anything from Nivea, Garnier, Superdrug own brand stuff, L'Oreal etc. All good. I also have the Body Shop Vitamin E which is lovely and the smell takes me back to my teens.
The Bourjois Colour Boost lip crayons are a sheeny balm with a hint of colour. The one in Proudly Nude is my go to everyday neutral colour. Feels lovely and moisturising and give a hint of colour and shine.
The NHS Salisbury sell my trusty sunflower cream and it can be found online at Superdrug. We found it after it was in the newspapers. It was developed to treat burns victims and my daughter has eczema and it is really good and comparatively inexpensive compared to lots of skincare creams. I think they do quite a few items online and if you get a Superdrug beauty card it’s free delivery, I have never found it in our local shop you can have things sent to a Superdrug for click and collect. Hope you find something.
Thanks everyone, I got the Simple Light Moisturiser for day and the new Nivea Q10 but Can night cream which was on special offer. I got the blistex lip cream and No7 BB lip colour. Mt skin feels lovely. I would never have thought of using the simple day cream but it's especially good under makeup and cheap as chips!
