  • Rosehip oil will give you moisture,you only need a drop or two and it is wonderful!

  • Sorbolene is great for dry skin but if you’re really concerned you should try & see a dermatologist who should be able to give you something suitable for your skin on prescription. Dry skin can be so frustrating!
    Best of luck.

  • Rosehip oil overnight, bio oil or generic version, a popped vitamin E capsule, directly applied to the face or olive oil. Your skin will feel greasy, but when you wash it off in the morning it will feel renewed.

  • I too have dry skin and have found that using just 2 drops of Rose Damescena Essential Oil. It’s about $20 a bottle but lasts so long with only using the 2 drops. And it smells so nice…no need to use anything else.

  • Have you tried making something? I love using olive oil and coconut oil.
    Also if you have primrose oil capsules and you can put them on your face you wake up with the softest face.

  • I’d be buying a jar of coconut oil at the supermarket and using that. It’s magic!

  • Sorbolene is really good and very inexpensive. The addition of vit e really seems to give it a boost. As it is so cheap, buy the best quality you can and use it morning and night. It does make a huge difference.

  • QV may seem expensive to buy but it goes a long way and keeps well even has been opened.

  • Aldi face cream is actually really good. If you don’t have one nearby, I would try a bit of qv intense moisturising cream. Comes in a little tub at the pharmacy.
