    Hi guys,

    I currently am using dermologica products for my face (Skin Smoothing cream and solar defence booster sun cream

    I have realised both these products are very expensive - the skin smoothing cream costs me £26 + and the sun care one is around £30+ very expensive - I would buy more if they supplied more which means that the creams run out very quickly so someone please help me find cheap products. Whenever I come out of the shower my skin feels dry someone told me the more natural the product's ingredients is, the better.

    Also I have researched about cocobutter oil/cream is that any good?

    Please note that I have had laser surgery so I am not sure how the products you recommend will react on my skin - so any creams that would be good with my laser treatments please let me know!

    So help me TSR as I am running out of creams!

    Thanks x

    I use baby lotion and it works perfectly fine on my skin. If your skin is more dry, try a thicker cream like nivea or diprobase (avaliable in most drugstores).

    I use the Garnier Soft range in winter and at the moment I'm using the No7 range. I've found either of those to be quite good.

    Perhaps try products by NeoStrata - they don't really contain natural ingredients but they are designed for use post procedure (laser surgery etc). It's also designed for use on generally fragile/delicate skin and so after I'd tested the tube I was sent I gave it to my gran (who has really sensitive skin, barely has to touch something and she bruises!) who found it fantastic, really soothing.

    My favourite facial moisturiser is Olay multiradiance fluid. It's only around £8 and comes with SPF 15.

    olay have a super cheap one for around £4 which is really good. it's called Olay beauty fluid, non-greasy moisturising fluid.

    i use the normal/dry/combination skin one, and it makes your skin soo soft! also it dries super quickly so it's not greasy at all. you can also use it as a base for make up i you wish.

    cool - thanks girls.

    I have also noticed that when I use the sun cream on it's own my skin turns out really dry or feels really dry- I will continue to do my research but I don't get it my skin has been feeling really dry lately :-/
