    In your experience, whats the best moisturiser for combination skin? ie skin that can be both oily / prone to acne and also dry in places
    i am prone to acne, which i manage with cream i got from my doctor, except it dries my skin out so much it sometimes cracks / bleeds a little, so i need a moisturiser that wont give me any more spots but keeps my skin moisturised.
    thanks

    liz earle. pricey but well worth it. and it lasts a long time. (: the good thing is that you don;t have to use it with other liz earle products either..just combine it with whatever else you use and it still works its magic..or at least in my case and many others..

    i loved biore oil free moisuriser - left my face not oily at all, hydrated dry skin, and seemed to keep spots at bay. it was £5 for a pretty small bottle, but i loved it. the boots skin clear oil free moisturiser is nothing in comparison to biore

    I like Vanishing Cream from Lush. But tbh, you are going to get loads of different answers from everyone. Everyone has a different opinion! Altho...I have heard lots of good things about Liz Earle. and alot of people have had a bad reaction with Simple products.

    I find the standard Olay beauty fluid the best combination skin, cos it moisturises but doesn't get greasy. I also love Benefit's You Rebel. It;s a tinted moisturiser that gives really good coverage. I wear it instead of foundation cos my skin is quite dry and foundation dries it out even further. But be warned You Rebel is quite greasy.

    I use Olay, it's lovely. Simple makes my face feel a bit greasy (I have combination skin...) I also like Neutrogena.

    Simple Derma is great, i use it as i have funny skin (it likes to erupt in random red splotches every now and again) and it is one of the only beauty products that my skin likes!

    Nivea soft for oily days.
    Nivea creme for dry days. xD
    They never fail me & always leave my face looking dewy and feeling hydrated.

    Btw ~ I'm working on a promoting team with Sure Girl who have just realised their new antiperspirant Dance Energy. The gorgeous smelling spray guarantees confidence boosting protectiong throughout the day for those of you who LOVE to dance & more than anything have loads of fun. ^__^ So yeh ~ I hope you guys will decide to give it a go.

    Any moisturiser is fine with me as long as it is labelled 'NON COMODOGENIC' .... My skin is prone to acne aswell.... grr! I hate 'em.
