I don't usually use moisturiser but feel that now I'm 50 I should to try to help keep the wrinkles at bay. I use miscella water to cleanse my skin morning and evening but I need help my skin is so dull

I've tried Olay and it made my eyes sore, Simple was okay but seemed to make my skin look oily after a couple of hours.

I get the odd spot but not too bad and don't have many wrinkles (yet) probably because my skin is oily

Can anyone recommend something to help.

What price range are you looking at?
There are hundreds of moisturisers out there so maybe give an idea of what you are looking for

Price range up to about £25. I'm always glowey due to my age and "the hot flushes" so Matt would probably be better I think. I'm so shiny and oily

Have a look at the Pixi range
They sell it in Boots and M&S, often with special offers

The la roche posay range is fantastic. The effaclar matt moisturiser would be suitable for oily skin.

I really like Clinque moisture surge intense.
I'm 45 and my skin is decent.

Sorry ignore my suggestion if you've oily skin. I should read every word and not skim blush

My 50+ skin is still more oily than dry with a chance of spots, I can’t use anything rich or age appropriate on my face.
My current go to is Clarins Multi-Active Day Cream with SPF 20 in the summer and without in the winter when I rarely go outside.
Working from home this is all I use every morning. If I have to do a client call or go into the office I add a little make up

Olly - your skin sounds like mine, I do think the oil helps reduce the wrinkles though so it's not all bad xx
