rose_day_cream.jpgNikki and I have been testing a number of natural moisturisers over the past few months. Here’s our pick of the bunch.

Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream: I used this moisturiser during the winter months and found it really good at protecting against the elements. – Available online from Dr Hauschka at £16 for 30mls. They also sell a trial size tube for £3.

Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream: I loved this one so much I’ve just gone out and bought two more tubes of it. It’s a repairing day cream, and leaves my face feeling moisturised (but not greasy) all day long. Perfect for thirty-something skin. – Also available online from Dr Hauschka at £16 for 30mls. Trial size tube £3.

Aimara Organic Rosehip Oil: Probably the best night “cream” I’ve ever come across. Been using this one for about 6 months now, and it’s really plumped up the skin around my eyes, making the fine lines disappear. The bottle lasts for ages. – Available online from Mariposa Alternative Bodycare at £8.45 for 25mls and £13.49 for 50mls. (Apparently it is also good for fading scars, so I’m going to be trying it on my daughter’s chicken-pox scars.)

Weleda Iris Day Cream: I liked this moisturiser. It’s light and non-greasy. Probably better for a teenager or twenty-something. – Available online from ThereMustBeABetterWay at £6.40 for 30mls.

Avalon Organics Vitamin C Moisture Plus Lotion with SPF15: Nikki and I both used this while on holiday earlier this year. It offered good sun protection, and was light and non-greasy, great for wearing during hot weather. Since coming home I’ve gone back to Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream, but Nikki is still using this and loving it. – Available online from Think Natural at £6.69 for 100mls. This is a bargain price, we’ve seen it for up to £11 in other shops.
