The Budget Buy: Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream


What's this? A new category? Yes, I'm going to be testing out all the best budget buys (all products will be under £15) for you all, whether it's skincare or make up, they will be popping up on my blog every now and then. But for now, this is my new perfect moisturiser, Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream. I would say I've stripped it all back to basics, but the basics are all new products I've been trying out for this category. As you all know, I have dry/dehydrated skin, more so dehydrated at the moment so I need all the moisture I can get. I have been drinking a lot more water recently to help that and I have seen a difference already. For the oily/combination girls out there, I have something up my sleeve in the skincare category for you.

Back to the moisturiser, I use this on a morning before I apply my make up. As Pixiwoo say, "it's the perfect base for foundation" and it really is! My base glides on my skin perfectly after using this. On a morning I don't usually use loads of skincare; if I have enough time, I might apply a little serum underneath but mostly I just slap some moisturiser on as I'm usually in a rush. It's not too thick and it's not too thin, it sits right on your skin and you're left feeling moisturised all day. I have a feeling this will work on all skin types, maybe not the super oily faces out there, but it shouldn't be too much for others. What more can I say? I love it and I have no idea why I haven't bought it sooner.

Have you tried it before? What would you like to see on the budget buy category?
