  • I've used Cetaphil lotion for the last 15 years. All of my other skincare is expensive, but that stuff is the best I've ever found and it's not expensive at all. A $10 bottle lasts me almost a year.

  • Aveeno.. It has spf and evens out skin tone and brightens skin. I love it I add a little bit of foundation and my skin looks great.

  • Damn they are expensive, aren't they?? I found the store brand of the Oil of Olay basic moisturizer with spf 15 is pretty good...I've used the CVS and Target brands.

  • Avon has a line called Solutions that is very reasonably priced. I am thinking if you used Deep Moisture, you probably want the blue jar which is Maximum Moisture. We also have a Basics line and the face cream is roughly 5.00 a jar. Once again the blue jar is Extra Hydration. is my website, go to shop now and type in the name of the product and it will bring it up for you. If you have any problems message me.

  • Olay Age Defying Anti-Wrinkle daily lotion is WONDERFUL!!! It's inexpensive and has an SPF of 15. Not greasy and it works great under makeup.

  • Okay, you're going to think I'm crazy but please try it ONCE and you will probably like it. : )

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    After you wash and dry your face just put a little on your fingertips and rub it into your skin. At first it may feel like it won't absorb but give it 5-10 minutes. I like to do it right before I go to bed and that way in the morning I don't even need moisturizer before I put on my make-up.

  • Some people swear by Petroleum Jelly, but I wouldn't want that on my face - not only for the goo, but also the petroleum base to it. EEVO is another thing I have heard a lot of people use.
