    Looking for some reccommendations.

    I'm 24 and have never really used a moisturiser on my face before. My skin was quite oily and spotty as a teen so I just avoided them.

    Basically I'd like something that:

    - keeps wrinkles at bay (noticed a few on my forehead)
    - I sometimes get dryness on cheeks & nose but my forehead can be quite oily
    - reduces redness
    - not too many oil based ingredients as I get a few spots (mostly on my chin at that time of the month)

    Budget - definitely high street and under £10

    Hope someone can help!

    I use this but not the sensitive one - just the regular day fluid. It's really good for my skin and makes a big difference to how it feels even after one use. I have dry cheeks and an oily t-zone too.

    'simple' products are always good, they're usually on offer in tesco
    what face wash do you use because it works best if you use all the same brand on your skin

    I spent years working on skincare brands, and recommend anything by Simple or Nivea. Later on, if you want to spend more, go for Elemental Herbology.

    The Nivea Post Shave Balm is really good. I know it is a mens product but i saw it online once and it is really good. I have oily skin too and I find that this helps to reduce my oil levels under my makeup.

    also it is a fantastic cheaper alternative to a foundation primer as it gives your skin a tacky surface which helps your makeup to stick to your skin all day long.

    I don't suffer from acne but it is made for men after they shave so it is good for sensitive skin.

    Hope this helps !

    I use this: http://www.superdrug.com/Johnson-&-J...-50ml/p/213661

    I used to have really oily and acne prone skin and I found this was very light, yet moisturising on my face. I've used it since I was 17 and I'm 21 now
