FACE CREAM RECOMMENDATIONS???
« on: June 13, 2020, 09:05:26 AM »

Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any recommendations re face creams? So many out there & quite pricey at that. The skin on my face is reasonably good (aged 42yrs), not particularly dry, not particularly oily either. Over the last few years age spots appearing, would like something light, smells nice and to keep me youthful looking - not asking for much!!! Any ideas? x

I use Boots no 7 instant Radiance,it's very light but gives a nice dewy look,even though covering well
I think they have changed the name of it, but still the same foundation

Oofle dust - I can't think of anything else to prevent aging skin  >:(
Except to turn the clock back and never expose your face to the sun. Too late for me so I might as well sit outside in the sun  8)

Oofle dust ........ that's a phrase from the past  :D

No soap on the face, Grannies washed with rain water collected in a barrel and I think 1 used Ponds face cream twice a day.  As well as 4711 behind the ears.

I find that 'vaseline' hand cream [the yellow one] as good as anything or a good quality sun tan lotion at this time of year.  Then after sun to sooth.  I don't spend much time in front of the mirror to see if I have wrinkles  :-\

Keeping hydrated internally is important too.

Thanks ladies. I've always used Olay (my mum used it) did have a spell where I used no7 serum and i liked it. Otherwise I find it all very confusing with all the promises they make and medical/dermatalogical sounding phrases to make you buy them! Never heard of oofle dust, but I have never used anything other than water to wash my face. Limited exposure to the sun, living in Scotland & only been on three foreign holidays in my life. Probably diet etc alot to do with looking after your skin and ageing. x

Look at the small print on the adverts.? '85% of the 29 ladies questioned'  ::) not a representative of the female population then.

Most start their ingredients with 'aqua' which really is a clue ;-)

Our Dentist hates those adverts because he says that they are simply not true. "Posed by models" as dentists are not allowed to recommend in such a way.

You've never heard of Oofle dust?? Am I horribly old or did you miss out on childhood (suspect the former  :(). Do you remember Sooty and Sweep? Offle dust is the magic powder Sooty used. Seems to work every time  :)
