A few months ago I started to feel like the skin on my face was feeling dry and uncomfortable. I started off by trying my wife's moisturisers (she has what seems like a cupboard full of different lotions and potions.) but with little success. They were either useless or made my skin look shiny or smelled unpleasant to me. While some were OK I realised that it was worth investing in a "man moisturiser."
When I started looking for a suitable product I was shocked by the price. Most big name brands cost at least £15 and this is well above what I would like to pay. I tried a couple of different products that I found on sale at Boots and then Co-op pharmacy but didn't like the results or the price was too high when they went off sale.
When I was in Tesco Doing my 'Big shop' I noticed this for just £4. I also bought the Original and the Anti-ageing but this was my favourite. After I had tried it I went back and stocked up as it was on sale but it isn't usually over a fiver.
As soon as I put this on my skin felt a lot softer. I use this every morning and evening after washing my face and it feels great. After just one week the lingering sense of dryness had gone and my wife agrees that my skin is visibly better.
My face doesn't look greasy or shiny after I have put this on, like it did with some of the more expensive options (and some of my wife's). You couldn't even tell that I had used moisturiser unless you knew how dry my skin was before I started using it. Although my skin isn't that sensitive it feels a lot nicer using this than it did the original. There is a slight fragrance to this but it isn't strong and wouldn't interfere with any scent you wear.
My wife has some moisturiser that is just for under the eyes that I still use but apart from that I wouldn't consider using any other moisturiser, even if the more famous brands were the same price. As I get older I might consider switching to the anti-ageing but not for a few years at least.
