What is the best...

Postby madeline » Sat Sep 15, 2007 10:05 am

Facial moisturiser/cream you ladies know of? I'm willing to spend up to $90, and I'd like one with SPF15+, but mainly as a precautionary measure to keep my skin young and wrinkle free.

Any recs?

i've been using an ella bache moisturiser since mid-april & i think it's pretty much the best my skin has ever been. no spf though.

i've also used gatineau ( products in the past & i really liked them as well.

the thing i usually like to do is go to a beautician and let them tell me more about my skin & what sort of moisturiser i needed.

best thing to do would go to a few of the counters in Myer or David Jones and get them to do a skin analysis for you and then you will have a few to choose from.

I did that and now use Clinique products for pretty much everything and I love them, but everyone has different skin so what works for me might not work for you.

I have been using my mums at the moment, she gets it from her laser place (skin treatment thingo), I think its about $60 but it has a SPF and is anti aging. Makes my skin feel soooooooo good!

I cant remember the name of it, i'll see when I get home.

Dont bother buying anything from kmart or target, they dont do anything. I would suggest going to Myer or David Jones, saying what you need and they can help you out.

Ooooh Biotherm is good too!

I have a Lancome moisturiser and I love it! But Im not sure if it has an SPF and im not sure on the price, lol.

I agree with Ella, go to myer or david jones, they usually have the best selection and plenty of people to help you out! :D

Clinique, dramatically different moisturising gel. $75

I use to do the whole cleanse tone and moisturise thing but my face would still be yucky. I realised after going away to basic training (where I didn't wash my face for 4 weeks), my skin actually cleared up quite a lot (got a few pimples from the cam cream, yuck). Now I just wash my face with water, pat dry and apply moisturiser and my skin is almost completely clear. Other moisturisers irritate my skin, this one was good though. My mum bought it for me when I was 16 because my pimples scared her.

I use Ten-o-six. I like it cos it's ultra light, cos on really well and doesn't make me feel clogged. It also smells fantastic. But then, I'm a tight-wad, and have never tried anything that costs over $10... ;)
