Face Creams I've tried!

Seeing as I'm desperately on the hunt for a perfect cream for my horribly dry and uncomfortable skin this winter, i thought I'd show you the collection of creams I've picked up and left due to it not helping my skin... At all :(. Is anyone else have a real hard time finding a cream to solve their skin problems? I hope I'm not the only one.
Garnier Moisture Match Creams - Found in any beauty/drug store for around £3-£5
I picked these up a few months ago, as i'd already tried out most of the samples so i had high hopes for these little bottles. As i hadn't has the sample for a dry skin cream i knew i had to pick it up and try. But alas, the formula is way to thick for my skin, it doesn't seem to blend into my skin enough without it feeling really thick and horrible on my skin. I did like the Combination to Oily skin though, it helped out the shine on my forehead and cheeks a bit, but not enough for my satisfaction.

Usage/Effectiveness 6/10.

Nivea Day Cream - £1.99 in Bodycare
I'd seen this cream around a lot before but never picked them up, i only recently got this cream so it's hard to judge on a long term period, but so far this cream is looking quite good. It's not too thick to apply and it has helped the awful dryness around my nose and cheeks. Considering it's on sale for under 2 quid at the moment, it's a pretty good cream and I'm considering stocking up while it's at such a good price.

Usage/Effectiveness 9/10.

Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream - Just under £5
Now i had NEVER tired any Olay product before, shocking i know. So i was open and ready to use this without any opinion beforehand. But the only nice thing about this cream for me is it's fragrance, it has such a lovely soft smell and isn't too strong for my skin. But it didn't do nothing for me unfortunately.

Usage/Effectiveness 5/10

Johnsons Hydrating 24hour Day Cream - £2.49 in  Bodycare
Considering this item was just for normal skin, i would have never picked it up. I actually started using my brothers girlfriends just to test it out and surprisingly it worked really nicely onto my skin. The only downfall it's usage only lasts a few hours, I'd apply it on around 7am for work and by about 12ish you would see the dryness coming back through. But then again it isn't specifically for dry skin so it's still a great cream for every day use. 
Packaging 9/10
Usage/Effectiveness 8/10.

I'm using 2 of these products still, but I'm not satisfied to how much it's helping my skin, so if anybody with the same uncomfortably horrible dry skin could help recommend any skin creams, I would deeply appreciate it! 


  1. I'm looking for a new face cream so this has been really helpful! :) I tried Garnier Moisture Match in the orangey packaging in the summer which was lovely!

    1. Aw that's good! I never had them in the summer i reckon they'd work better for me then x

  2. Hi Vicki, I would like to let you know that I have nominated you for the Liebster Award! Visit my blog for the details :)


  3. You're definitely not the only one who struggles! The trick seriously is just to try copious amounts of products and switch up combinations until you find something that really works for you.

  4. I've used the Johnsons cream and really liked it as my skin is only a little bit dry so it worked well for me. I'm currently using the Nivea one and am quite happy with it - I didn't know it was on sale so I'll have to stock up now - thanks for letting me know!
