Tried and Tested: Moisturisers

Ask any old lady with peachy skin her secret and the chances are it will be moisturiser. In fact many dermatologists say that a cheap pharmacy product such as aqueous cream can do just the trick despite the lack of buzzwords and medical-sounding affixes such as micro-this and bio-that. Don't always believe the hype.

Many dermatologists believe that over-moisturising can also destroy your skin's natural balance. However, in this climate it's important to keep the skin hydrated ideally with a moisturiser containing an SPF. It doesn't have to cost a small fortune either. Here's some of our most effective moisturisers on the market.

This week Confidential recommends moisturisers.


Garnier UltraLift Pro-X £11.99

(best for normal/anti-ageing)

“This is a great moisturiser.

My skin type is normal and although I don't need anti-ageing products yet, I don't think it's ever too early to start.

This cream leaves your skin feeling not only moisturised, but revitalised, smooth and plump.”



Dermalogica Active Moist £20

(best for oily)

“This is light and soaks in fast. The main thing is that it isn't greasy at all. It's more of a lotion than a cream which is better for oily/problem skin. It also smells botanical and natural which is a bonus.”


L'oreal visible results £7.89

(best for combination)

“It absorbs easily and contains SPF. It manages to moisturise well without bringing me out in spots.”


Clinique Super Defense £24

(best for t-zone and best SPF)

“They have specific variants according to your skin type, which all include SPF 25. It sinks into the skin well and leaves it plump and hydrated without greasiness.”


Crème de la Mer £135

(best expensive)

“At £135 for a 60ml pot you have to question your sanity buying it. However, whereas with something like Nivea you just slap it on and buy a few pots a year, because this one is so pricey you use a minimal amount and treasure it. It makes your skin feel amazingly smooth.”


Astral £1.19

(best budget)

“Astral is whipped cream. It's light and airy. It's as good as many of the more expensive creams and works for all skin types.”

Being a man's man I only use Dettol and a wire brush to keep my porcine phyzog glowing pink.

And very nice it looks too, Warren! I like to rub gravel and Brasso into my hair for that fashionable just-got-out-of-the-skip look I put on for my public engagements and champagne and canapé Culture Company jollies.

For feck's sake! It's about moisturiser and you still try to turn it into some fecking political satire. Funny though.
