Fifty Plus Skincare: My Current Regime

My skin is pretty good but I do need help these days to keep the moisture in and keep the wrinkles at bay.


I start with Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash.  I love the smell and my face feels much cleaner with a wash than with a creamy cleanser.  When I first put it in the bathroom, the contents were disappearing alarmingly fast until my husband mentioned ‘that nice smelling hand wash’.  He’s now not allowed to steal it unless washing his face!

Next I apply Environ Super Intensive Moisturiser from Skinaddict. This is reassuringly thick and non perfumed.  Ideal for the winter months.  Interestingly my husband has also been stealing this and his acne rosacea has improved considerably.

I’m trying out Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster which I apply after moisturising.  It came in a Birchbox last year and I’ve only just got round to trying it.  The jury is still out because it has a peculiar orange smell and is quite sticky.  I’ll persevere for a bit longer to see if it makes any difference to my jawline and neck.

Finally, for daytime, I’m using Caudalie SOS Morning Eye Rescue as I’ve noticed that the skin under my eyes is darker than it used to be. This has a nice light formula and is easily absorbed and fragrance free.  It doesn’t cause any problems with my contact lenses either.

At bedtime I really love to use an oil as my skin feels dry by the end of the day.  My current favourite is Saaf Organic Ultimate Moisture Face Serum which smells divine.  Because using a facial oil has been part of my bedtime routine for so long, I’m sure it puts my brain into sleep mode.

With spring on the way, I’ll be updating my regime and would love to hear what other fifty plus ladies are using.
