    Probably just over the £5, but cheaper when you go for the the multi buy offers - I really recommend Maybeline dream matte mousse - the coverage is excellent, I used to use Clinique super fit before this, but found it a little too expensive so when I tried a free sample of this I realised it wasn't really that different to Clinique, and as I said, the coverage is just the same.

    I have very dry sensitive, flaky skin and have tried various skin products, i never stick to the same creams I am yet to find a suitable one for my dry skin.
    Can anyone recommend a good moisturiser for my dry skin please?
    Many thanks

    If it's a facial moisturiser you're looking for, I have found Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance to be the best facial moisturiser for my very dry, sensitive & reactive skin. It is expensive (and completely at odds with the spirit of this thread), but it's made a huge difference to my life as I used to have days where I couldn't face leaving the house as my skin was such a state.

    I also had some success with Avene products (available in larger Boots stores) but Dermalogica has really been my life-saver.

    I love Vie at Home products and you will find the Clearance tab on their website has an under £5.00 section. These pages change regularly and worth multiple visits.

    Also currently have men's products too. ;)

    Just a little warning - a lot of people react with Dermalogica products. I work with the products on a daily basis and its amazing the amount of people who can't use them.

    I discovered Aldi's face cream £1.89 a pot and it's fantastic. They do day and night cream at same price, it was recommended:j on a Gok Wan program.

    Also Simple facial wipes (mentioned in another thread) are widely available in pound shops....

    Aldi Siana Anti-wrinkle night cream with Retinol Complex & Co-enzyme Q10 is great at £1.99 & Aldi do the appropriate Day Cream at £1.99 too. These products have been rated on a par with expensive versions & fantastic value for money. All Aldi skin products are good and their make up range is well worth a try. Aldi even offer a money back (with receipt) if you are unhappy about any of their products!

    Boots "Natural" range is good and Mascara is only £1.99. Sometimes they do 3 items for £5.
    Also Tesco Vit E face wipes are good and only 72p!

    Boots Time Delay Skin Treatments Radiance Booster is a fantastic substitute and its on offer at Boots for £4.84 (usually £6.84) so it makes the 'under a fiver' product search!

    I think its great.

    Johnsons 24 hour moisture hand cream is the business £1.99 for 50ml at Boots, but its often cheaper if you shop around, I think its half price at Tescos at the mo.

    Does anyone know a good wash off cleanser?

    Barbara Daly make-up is very good.

    My favourite is a Babyface cleanser from Lush - excellent at taking off make-up and not tested on animals (nobody needs to buy makeup and toiletries that have been animal tested, so why do it?)
