elemis pro collagen marine cream is the best I've used - but at the moment I'm using the Aldi one!

Puppster Fri 29-Aug-08 16:42:55

Dermalogica skin smoother - v senstive skin, many things bring me up in lumps but this is great

woodenchair Fri 29-Aug-08 16:43:46

Olay total effects (again off ebay grin

I've started using biooil and that's really good too

Olay x 7 SPF15 touch of sun

Seems to do everything

I also snaffle dh's travel bags and the Elemis marine cream is brilliant (as is Kiehls ultra facial moisturiser butas its extra rich I only use as a weekly booster)

dermalogica barrier cream - hyper sensitive skin.

WilfSell Fri 29-Aug-08 16:47:11

Boots Time delay or protect and perfect (it's got real science donchaknow? grin)

SqueakyPop Fri 29-Aug-08 17:00:22

What science, Wilself?

WilfSell Fri 29-Aug-08 17:03:36

here Squeaky.

Not surprisingly, following the serum's success they make a whole range to fleece tempt us with. And I'm a sucker.

paddingtonbear1 Fri 29-Aug-08 17:05:25

OhYouBadBadKitten Fri 29-Aug-08 17:07:43

Sanctuary - lovely smell, light, and a friend just told me how I was looking much younger these days (shes a good friend )

saramoon Fri 29-Aug-08 18:41:13

No 7 for oily/combination skin and olay sunkissed whatever it is. Use a boots serum too for sensitive skin but have run out. Garnier/roc eyecream

pollyanna Fri 29-Aug-08 18:46:00

dermalogica active moist or skin smoothing cream (in winter usually or when my skin is drier)

beanieb Fri 29-Aug-08 18:47:29


Though I do sometimes buy fancy stuff if it'ss on offer.

WilyWombat Fri 29-Aug-08 18:48:46

I find a lot of the ones aimed at my age group are too rich and oily so they bring me out in spots - I really like the first wrinkle ones from Yves Rocher


janeite Fri 29-Aug-08 18:51:58

I like Olay Regenerist or Origins Perfect World. I am currently using a crap one that Davina McCall advertisers though; can't remember what it's called but it has lurid red bottles and is NOT GOOD.

janeite Fri 29-Aug-08 18:52:40

arghh - advertises.

WilyWombat Fri 29-Aug-08 18:54:28

Of course anything which claims to get rid of your wrinkles is really insulting your aint gonna happen grin

I know my friend in her em - late 40's swears by the Aldi eye cream - I may be tempted.
Though I fancy the one that the wrinkly puppy advertises.

Cappuccino Fri 29-Aug-08 19:04:19

what is the Aldi one called

<plans trip>

Romy7 Fri 29-Aug-08 19:05:13

but my cleanser and toner is all rocky mountain soap company, cooked up mean and green in a wood by a lentil weaver, and flown thousands of miles for my delectation lol.

going to try their day cream next. something's gotta work.
