    I recently tried Garnier Hydralock ( half price in tesco ! )
    I was very impressed with it and for a cheapish price tag well worth checking out .
    I normally use dior hydra life which is fabulous but is a little pricey

    i was thinking of no7, but ive used the facewash and didnt think it was anything special. not tried the avon ones

    I used to use nivea soft. I've recenlty moved onto the Vitamin E intensive from the Body Shop and am finding that really good. Not the cheapest but a tiny bit goes a long way so not too bad.

    cheers dlm! may give that a go next time we get a catalogue

    Does you skin go oily a few hours after putting on your foundation? I use Boots No7 Balanced Results Day Sorbet and its fantastic. Spent a fortune trying a load of others.

    I am sure I have a £5 off voucher as its about £16 - let me go check and if I have will post it on to you if u like


    yip, got a voucher - it expires on 28th - this Sunday

    im using the oil of olay tinted moisturiser during the day as its not as heavy as foundation if that counts? :-D

    I have tried loads of things and finally the combination of using that day sorbet moisturiser - and this mineral foundation elizabethardenpurefinish.co.uk/ I can go about 4 hours before the shine kicks in and a quick touch up with the mineral powder keeps me goin now for another 4 hours. The woman at the Elizabeth Arden counter told me to brush my face lightly with normal face powder, then apply the mineral stuff - and its just great

    Bit pricey but worth it - think it was nearly £40 for the brush and powder

    i could never imagine mine lasting 4 hours. ive just bought a no7 powder to try once my old one has ran out. ive tried the mattifying creams you use before make up to stop shine but nothing works, i just make sure i have my powder in my bag and touch up every so often
