Hey ladies! I've been neglecting my skin lately and as it's getting colder out there, I could do with a good moisturiser. I have dry skin, and use fake tan, so a heavy duty one would be best. There's sooo many to choose from though! What's your favourite moisturiser?
Thank youuu :)

I always used Oil of Olay but have since moved onto the No 7 ones as Im getting older. Both Olay and No 7 have top reviews for their price as well. Ive been told my skin is really good but I have always moisturised since I was a teen as my mum made me (Im adopted so I dont know if I have good genes).

I love anything from Vichy, Biotherm and Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - that's all for face.

For me the smell is very important, and if it's an eye cream - it must not sting.

Clarins Hydrquench cooling cream-gel is the only one that sorts out my dry bits and doesn't make my t zone super shiny.

I'm with the Nivea Soft too - and I use the Nivea Q10 plus, anti-aging for my hands which is fab

We have a "ladies Locker" in our office for all those female related emergencies - you know tampons, deodrant, moisturiser, hair straighteners! And the guys have now clocked it and use the Nivea soft out of it too!
