    I swear by Johnsons Baby Soothing Naturals Lotion for dry skin, I had skin so dry on my knees/elbows that it would bleed (lovely I know) had went to the doctors, even tried olive oil to no avail, tried this and it was amazing :) used it morning and night for a few weeks and had a great improvement, I use it few times a week now and my skin is alot better, think it's about £2 from supermarkets. It's the one in the green bottle.
    The frontier is never somewhere else. And no stockades can keep the midnight out.

    I have just discovered Asda's Young Skin Matt Finish Moisturiser (£1.03). It's great! It really works well at mattifying my skin and seems to last all day!

    I completely agree with you. I have been using this since the summer and it is fab! Beforehand I was using a Garnier one but bought this one day I was there as though it can't hurt based on the price and was converted! xxx

    My latest finds:

    ELF mineral eyeshadow primer.£3. Makes even my cheapie eyeshadow look true to colour and last longer.


    Where do you get ths from? I don't use foundation, let alone an eyeshadow primer. It would be nice to have it last.

    Can I just give a big thumbs up to Aldi's Lacura range? I noticed the men's range was mentioned earlier but the women's range is good too.
    Particularly the serum, lovely, lovely stuff. All of Aldi's ranges are unbelievable value - not just the cosmetics and toiletries. As my daughter works for Aldi, I often have them as Mother's Day, birthday and Christmas gifts.

    I'm another fan of the Aldi Q10 face creams (day & night). Also love their serum & eye creams. I've used ROC eye cream before & reacted badly to the retinol in it. Was wary of trying an eye cream again but this was great.

    Oddly I also had a bad reactio to the Lacura body lotion (smells of oranges) & my eczema flared awfully.

    I got a bargain yesterday in Boots on Norwegian Formula Body Lotion. RRP for a 250ml bottle was £5.10 & they sold for £2.55. But you could bet 2 for £3.82 (thereabouts) so I brought home 4 bottles! Manageress told me the smaller bottles are being discontinued.

    I'm also a fan of Avon. Bubblebaths & the glimmerstick eyeliner - often of offer for about £3-4.

    This is ELF's website:

    Their face primer is really lovely too (not tried the eyeshadow primer)

    Yes, you can use this without foundation. It makes my skin feel really soft and smooth (and makes my laughter lines less visible which has to be good!). It also makes foundation look better, probably because it has a better "surface" to work with, if that makes sense!

    If anyone is interested in body butters (made with cocoa butter, shea butter etc) and other natural products for less than a fiver, this website has travel sizes for £3.75.

    Not very cheap, but great if you only use small quantities, and the quality is fantastic.
