Astral Light & Creamy
Astral is a bit of a beauty legend: like Pond's Cold Cream, Vaseline or Nivea, it's the go-to moisturiser for a surprising number of women who could afford Crème de la Mer - but love a beauty bargain as much anyone. (That includes Joanna Lumley, who's a long-term fan.) Not everyone, though (and that includes us) is a fan of Astral's very rich texture. But we're delighted by this new spin on the original: with antioxidant vitamin E and aloe vera, it lives up to its light and creamy name. And though it's non-greasy, it moisturises skin beautifully while sinking in fast - creating a perfect canvas for make-up.
Astral call it an 'All Over Moisturiser': though fine for faces, you can slap it on thirsty bits anywhere.
Actually, at this price, you could almost afford to bathe in it...
