Affordable moisturiser

Hi Everyone,

I'm nearly at the end of my current daily moisturiser (think its a Boots Botanics one) and wondering which high street brand ones are any good...I usually buy whatever is on offer and just wanted to hear what others thought of various ones.

I'm looking for a non greasy day cream which contains SPF for less than £10 if possible.

Superdrug own brand moisturiser is good.
I like the vitamin e range & it's cheap too.

I used Nivea Q10 for ages and loved it - it might not always come in under £10 (more often £11ish), but it's frequently on offer at Boots so you could definitely buy it when you see a good deal even if your previous pot hasn't quite finished.

I like Simple moisturisers. They sink in well and don't leave a residue on your skin.

I was going to say Simple as well. I get distracted by expensive brands and always end up going back to Simple.

Superdrug's own range is good. Very inexpensive. And completely cruelty free. Their Totally Radiant range is especially nice - they have a serum (I think that's what its called) in a little pump bottle that lasts ages, moisturises well and isn't heavy or greasy.

The simple water boost day and night moisturisers are really good!

Mojitomogul · 21/11/2018 17:18

Another one for superdrugs own vitamin e, sinks in and feels lovely and not heavy at all, i use the body mosituriser from that range too, great tub sizes that last ages.

Aldi Lacura £2.99 or about £7 for the caviar cream. Wins loads of blind awards, smells like nivea and as good as the Clarins I used to spend a fortune on for years.

ShellsBells76 · 21/11/2018 17:21

Another vote for the Superdrug Vitamin E range, the serum is so lovely and a great make up base.

OriginalGeordie · 21/11/2018 17:41

I use the Simple one which has SPF 30 in it. Think it’s on offer at Boots the moment for under £5.

OHolyNightOwl · 21/11/2018 18:29

Olay Regenerist is great

DeadCertain · 21/11/2018 18:30

Aldi Lacura Caviar.

pattyhoo · 21/11/2018 18:44

I get the same as @MrsMariaPolouvicka ! It has the SPF too - it's amazing value 

IvysMum12 · 21/11/2018 19:32

Another vote for ALDI's Lacura range. It's lovely.

caffelatte100 · 21/11/2018 19:53

bodyshops vitamin e cream bought on line on (one of the many) special offers they have when you order online...

Rebeccahammond · 21/11/2018 20:11

I used to use Nivea but I switched to this about a year ago and it gives me a really nice glow.

Bobbybobbins · 21/11/2018 20:14

Agree with Superdrug vitamin E range - it's amazing!

raindancemumma · 21/11/2018 20:17

Aldi Lacura Caviar, it's about £6/£7. I tried the super cheap one (looks like the Nivea Q10 cream, but wouldn't recommend that one)

cheeseismyspiritanimal · 21/11/2018 20:19

Another Aldi caviar fan here. It's the nicest face cream I've tried.

OnlyTheDepthVaries · 21/11/2018 20:27

I've just opened a pot of the Aldi caviar one...seems really good so far!

chapthedoor · 21/11/2018 20:36

Nivea Soft or Simple

goingonabearhunt1 · 22/11/2018 14:23

Ooooh this is interesting, may have to try the Aldi one (love Aldi in general!) I have got on with Superdrug Vit E and Nivea in the past, Simple doesn't agree with me for some reason. Thanks everyone.
