    Hi
    I was wondering if anyone knows of good, everyday moisturising lotions. I want to try out a new product, my skin can be sensitive, so a product that is quite simple.

    Also, since i don't wear make-up, what kind of face cleansing routine would you follow? i just wash and clean my face and then apply astral. :confused:

    I use the Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion. Simple products in general are really good if you have sensitive skin.
    For a routine, I usually wash my face in the evening with an unscented soap (I usually use Dove), then put some Oilatum on, rinse that off. Then I pat my skin dry with a soft towel, use the cleanser (sometimes I skip it if I didn't wear makeup), and then I put an acne cream on because I get horrific acne otherwise.

    Always cleanse tone then moisturise your face. If your cleanser is ph 5.5 then you can skip the toner otherwise it is a necessity.

    I didn't know what a toner was, till like the other day. I don't think i'm going to use that.


    I always think that keeping it to a minimum, is best for your skin. For example, a face wash/cleanser and then moisturise. I wouldn't want to go above this, because ill end up ruining my skin. I see too many youtube videos of people having practically ten things on there daily skin care routine, that would certainly ruin my face.
    Btw, that rant wasn't aimed at you, just a general thought.

    Nope! They have a face wash, but I use the cream. It's basically like a moisturiser but also cleanses your skin. I also really like it for lazy days when I don't want to wash my face but need to clean it

    Keep it simple if you have sensitive skin. use gentle products. Cleanse & moisturise once a day.

    I've started using purechimp products for a few weeks now and my skin looks great. Simple are also a good brand for sensitive skin.

    I tried the simple moisturising facewash a few days ago and it didn't really like it. It made my skin feel a bit tight and kind of itchy. Perhaps its because i assumed that would happen ('m very cautious when trying out new skin care products)? I also used the vaseline aloe vera lotion straight after, so i don't know.
    I don't wear make up so i do i need a face cleanser? I thought my face wash is sufficient.

    I tried out simple moisturising face wash and it didn't feel nice on my skin. I mean, when i washed it off-face felt a bit 'tight' and slightly itchy. Might have been because i expected it (i'm kinda catious trying out facial products). Never heard of purechimp, is it ok for sensitive skin?

    Don't use a lotion meant for the body on the face as they are often not non comedogenic meaning they will clog the pores on your face.

    Good job i only used it twice. I thought it was for your body and face. That wasn't very nice on my skin either, hated the smell and stung a bit.

    I didn't find Sakare Body Butters greasy at all on my skin. However, body butters are meant for the driest areas like hands, feet, elbows, and the like. If you’re finding body butters greasy, only apply them to the areas that need a bit more moisture. I've found this body butter makes an excellent cuticle cream as well.

    The Simple moisturiser broke me out badly, both times I use it.

    Philosophy's Hope in a Jar is quite good, I use this in conjunction with La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo+ which is a moisturiser that helps with blemishes.

    Cetaphil and Eucerin are two very very good brands for moisturisers.
