Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser, £4.49/50ml, Ponds
A classic that still delivers, Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser cleanses deep down, removes make-up – even waterproof mascara- and won't dry out your skin. It also makes a great facemask when applied and left for a minute or so to leave skin lovely and soft. Available from 080591720 and from Superdrug (02086847000/www.superdrug.com).
Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Eye Cream, £2.99/15ml, Superdrug
We love the no-nonsense Vitamin E range from Superdrug. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the signs of ageing, healing scar tissue and sun damage while helping protect the skin from further damage. The Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Eye Cream is light, non-greasy yet hardworking. It helps banish puffiness and dark circles as well as improving the appearance of fine lines – all for a steal.
Vitamin E Skin Oil, £2.99/30ml, Superdrug
Unlike many oils, Superdrug's Vitamin E Skin Oil isn't heavy or greasy, so it's a great buy if you suffer from dry or combination skin. Not just for your face, this wonder oil is perfect for tackling dry elbows, knees and heels and even works to improve scar tissue and stretch marks. And at that price we think it's a sound investment.
Lacura Wrinkle Stop £4.99/10ml, Aldi
To tackle common ageing giveaways, a serum should be part of your skincare regime. Designed to deliver intensive anti-ageing benefits in a lightweight formula, serums sink deep into the skin. We like the Lacura Wrinkle Stop, which contains a synthetic snake venom much praised by beauty experts worldwide for stopping new wrinkles forming. Clinical tests show a reduction of wrinkles by up to 52 per cent in 28 days. Plus it contains ingredients found in premium brands for a fraction of the price.
Simply Pure Face Scrub, £2.59/75ml, Superdrug
Regular exfoliation is essential for keeping your skin looking fresh and radiant as it buffs away dead skin cells that can cause your skin to look dull. The key to exfoliating is working with your skin type. If your skin is sensitive then avoid exfoliating every day, choose a gentle formula and don't apply too much pressure. We love the Simply Pure Face Scrub as it's fragrance and paraben free, hypoallergenic and dermatologically approved.
