My skincare regime is terrible and its starting to show! ATM i use face wipes twice a day (any brand, usually Johnsons or Loreal) and Neutrogena grapefruit moisturiser. Once a week i use the Neutrogena grapefruit scrub.
I posted last week for anti ageing moisturiser recs and i am definitely going to get the Soap snd Glory 21 day collagen one that everyones raving about but now i need to find a nice cleanser and daily moisturiser when not using the Soap and Glory one. Few things i am bearing in mind : -
I am 36 but my skin looks older.
I can get spot outbreaks but i cant usually use products for oil control as they dry my skin out so much it looks like i have wind burn. My skin can be quite sensitive. As well as having oily patches my skin is also very dry.
I am short of time with a 4yo and a newborn so nothing too faffy.
It has to smell nice!!
Has anyone tried the peaches cleanser

Sorry that went before i finished!!
Has anyone tried the Soap and Glory peaches cleanser?
What about night creams/under eye creams etc?
Basically i need to control the oily/dry issues and use sonething to brighten my skin. It looks so old and dull. I have birthday money to spend so fancy sonething more expensive than my usual £4 pack of wipes but nothing so massively expensive i can only buy it once and never replace it. Soap and Glory kind of pricing....
Please sort me out!! Thank you!!

I think you need to go into a department store and speak with and test different products. There is so much on the market these days it's baffling.
I use the nutrogena pink grapefruit daily wash. Then S&G Wish upon a jar over night and my Loreal Ultralift day cream of a day as it's much lighter. I remove all makeup with vitamin e products from Superdrug.

i'm 37 yrs :-) I currently use Liz Earle cleanser polish cloth in the mornings followed by any moisturizer with a sun factor in it or a BB cream (currently No7) in the evening I've started using No7 overnight radiance boost serum followed by No7 intense night cream (for ages 35-45). I tried S&G last year but didn't see any real difference so I've not used that again, although I do love S&G products.

Also if I've used the BB cream (which has foundation in it) I always take my make up off with Johnsons Baby lotion and cotton wool before a quick wash :-)
I am currently on the look out for a good eye serum/concealer..

The main reason I've started with No7 is I always seem to get No7 vouchers from boots, with £5.00 off which is always a bonus and smells nice.

I'm 33 and I use the lid Earle cleanse and polish too. It's really easy to use, removes any traces of make up, and smells and feels lovely. I've not tried their moisturisers etc but I've heard good things about them.
Tesco have started doing their own version which I'm trialling at the moment, it's about a quarter if the price and so far it seems just as good. I intend to vary which one I use dependant on how rich I feel!

Ive got the S&G one and although at first I noticed a difference, I not dont think its that much better than anything else I use religiously, so will have a look for something else.
I;ve heard great things about clarins which although expensive, last ages. I want to go to boots at the weekend and see what is available. My skin is dull and I need brightening!

I love this for my skin- use day and night. www.feelunique.com/.../Elemis-Rehydrating-Rosepetal-Cleanser-200ml and I have the rehydrating toner. I use the day cream too, which is fab as it isn't too heavy.
I used It's Potent until recently but have now switched to Lancome after a recommendation when I had my makeup done. It's brilliant, I actually prefer it- www.feelunique.com/.../Lancome-Hydra-Zen-Yeux-Neurocalm-Eye-Contour-Gel-Cream-15ml

The first thing I'd recommend is stop using baby wipes. I used to do this, then I used liz Earle cleanse and polish with a muslin after and goodness the grime that continued to come off.
I only use the liz Earle cleanse and polish plus toner and moisturiser daily and one of their masks once a week roof my skin gets bad. There is also a spot lotion that I spot onas required. I don't use anything else yet but guess ill need to consider it soon.
