Skincare: Moisturisers

If there's one thing that annoys me all the time its my skin, at times it's extremely dry and patchy and at other times it's extremely greasy. On top of that I have sensitive skin (eczema) which flares up quite regularly so because of this I have had to find moisturisers that help with my dry/greasy problem as well as work with my sensitive skin.


1. Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream
I bought this face cream when I had a bad eczema flare up on my skin back in April and I must say it worked very well out of all the products I bought to help. It took a few weeks of using it daily to completely get my skin back on track but it really was miracle product especially considering I was at the end of my tether in regards to which products to help my skin. The Oilatum face cream is suitable for dry and sensitive skins as it is free from fragrances, preservatives and emulsifiers. 

2. Simple Kind To Skin Vital Day Cream
I use this moisturiser mainly during the Autumn/Winter months as it is slightly thick to help with my dry skin but manages to not be too greasy at the same to too which is great if you have combination/dry skin. I have no complaints about this moisturiser at all  and I have been using it for years and it does last a very long time. However, due to it being a more heavier moisturiser I don't use it in the summer months as that is when I am more oily on my face. This moisturiser as also comes in a version with sunscreen which I purchase next when this runs out.

3. Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Moisturiser 
I tend to reach for this moisturiser in the summer months as it is very light and non greasy which is what I need because this is when my face tends to be more oily and shiny. This moisturiser manages to give me the right amount of moisture I need in the summer months without overdoing it. The oil balancing ingredients in this product are: 
Natural Zinc PCA - absorbs excess oil, Phytosphingosine - to help reduce blemishes, Corn Starch - to mattify the skin.

I have been using Simple products for a few years and I find that they work very well for me which is due to the natural ingredients they put in the products, I will now also be repurchasing the Oilatum face cream once it finishes too.
