Two or three days of sun and already the skin on my nose is dry, flaky and peeling a little
help a fella out
The 'Sensitive' one, it's bob on. I don't think you can go wrong with Nivea stuff.
The white tub is nice and soft and gets in your skin well
there's one not far from me
there's a small one (50ml) in an orange squeezy thing which is excellent. Bit pricy but worth it.
or rather, I'll recommend it to my girlfriend who will buy it and then I will check it out
on the peely bits, as above nivea is good, then light moisturiser for the bits that aren't yuck, simple is really nice.
or elizabeth arden's 8 hour cream if you're feeling extravagant.
and whereas it's GREAT on winter whipped chapped lips it doesn't seem to do much good on the peely nose
i've exhausted the realms of my womanly knowledge of products.
combination skin is a hassle.
I used it for a while and it made me look good
it reminds me of my mum, sometimes i use anti ageing creams as a preemptive measure.
like pre emptive botox but not a completely mental idea.
I think if you reverse the signs of ageing early enough then you'll just always look young.
although can go too far the other way, a friend from home's mum offered to buy her botox for her 18th. :(
but all the makeup i use is sun protecting and last summer i got this base off my mum that had an spf of forty, great stuff but i can't remember who made it.
Surely she doesn't have any wrinkles to straighten out!
Most make up about has some kind of sun protection in it. I use a cheap superdrug moisturizer which is nice. Kinda smells like it has cocoa butter in it but it doesnt!

for some reason the extreme cold scandinavian winter moisturiser types don't work on me during the 20 hours of sun a day part of the year
Palmers cocobutter. As the jamaican lady opposite me says. If you would not eat it, then you should not put it on yeeeer face.
