Daily Battle

I have a few moisturises that I’m really enjoying at them moment, so I though I’d show you what I am using as my Day & Night Creams. I have a few more tucked away but these are my goto ones for the colder months.

So I have 5 winter staples this year 3 day creams and 2 night creams. The No7 Protect & Perfect Day Cream is so hydrating and moisturising. I’ve been through a few pots of this and my skin really likes it. Its great under makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft all day. It has SPF 15 and a 5* for UVA which I like. This pot lasts me at least 4 months so you get great value for money – £22 for 50ml

My Avene Redness Relief Moisturizing Protecting Cream is amazing. I do suffer from redness on my cheeks and it gets worse in the colder months. This Avene Cream really helps. It’s quite thick and green toned but that fades on the skin. I find it takes a while to sink in, but once it has it really helps keep my redness in check. Obviously it doesn’t make it go away completely. This cream is anti irritating and is perfect for those of you who like me have sensitive skin. It also has SPF 20 in. £13.05 for 40ml

The Origins Starting Over Age Erasing Moisturizer with Mimosa this is a lovely creamy face cream with a strong botanical scent. That might be to everyone’s taste but I quite like the smell of this cream. I have been using this for about 4 weeks and so far my skin has reacted will to it. It’s really hydrating and glides on my skin. It’s meant to have great anti ageing qualities in & at 34 I could use some of those. I can’t comment too much on that but I am hoping its doing is job. I will continue with this and see if I can see any significant improvement. £38 50ml This pot came as part of the Starting Over set and so is only 30ml

Now on to Night Creams – The Avon Anew Genics Treatment Cream has been such a great night cream for me. I have noticed some discolouration on my cheeks lessening. I have some acne scaring and it’s really helping with that. This is thick but not greasy at all. By morning my skin is smooth and bright. After 2 months of using I really like the results I’m seeing. I can’t find where to buy this online. Only on Ebay for between £15 – £20 for 30ml

Now I have saved the best for last. My beloved Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cream. There is no denying I simply love this night cream. This was also part of a kit & I used the Mega Mushroom Toner and Face Wash & loved them too. The face cream is very highly scented and it smells strong on your face. So I think that might put a lot of people off this. This is not specifically a night cream but it’s really thick and strongly scented so I like to use it as a night cream so I can apply a thick layer of it. This cream is aimed at reducing redness - something that I suffer with and also I have found it helps stop be getting breakouts. I have a 30ml pot but you can buy the 50ml pot for £46

What face creams have you been using and what couldn’t you live without?

    I love the No7 creams too, I have Lift and Luminate for my day cream and Essential Moisture for my night cream. I get such dry skin in the winter and the night cream is super hydrating. I’ve always liked them because they sink in nicely, I hate it when you have greasy skin for ages after applying moisturiser! I like the sound of the Avene one, will look out for that!
