Looking for a moisturiser for my very dry skin on my face- creamier the better. Tia x

I use the intensive Aveeno one. It has a dark blue cap. Wonderful stuff; really makes a difference to my dry, irritable skin.

@scampiesandchips thanks for your reply- funny because I actually use aveeno on DD and never really considered it for myself- doh. Will keep an eye out for it!

If you have dry skin you might be better layering an oil under your moisturiser. A few drops of a facial oil on damp skin before moisturiser can do wonders. Also thin layer of Vaseline after moisturiser before bed seals it all in.

@wilts09 No worries. I discovered it when my GP recommended it for DS' eczema. Brilliant stuff.

nivea Q10
in winter I use the night one during the day.

@mintbiscuit oh great thank you. It's mainly worse around my nose and mouth- probably due to weather. I'll give it a try x

Eucerin, available in larger Boots etc. I use the eye and face xream. Very moisturising!
