(Re-Gen Cream – £7.99)
Say hello to the best kept secret in the world. Literally the best moisturiser and skin saviour I have ever used. I bought a tub of this about 3 years ago in an Aldi store for £3 I think it was. Me and a friend were drawn to the fact it looked like a rip off of Bio Oil with the white and orange branding so we both thought what the heck and went for it. At first I used it for its purpose of treating stretch marks, scars and dry skin by applying it to my thighs as a part of my ‘losing cellulite’ routine. Yet, after a few weeks I put it into my draw never to be used again, until… About a year ago I started getting really dry skin around my eyes. I attributed it to the Mac Painterly paint pot as it seemed to be the only new thing that could have caused it, but anyway. I needed a moisturiser that would sort it out and quickly. I found this in my draw and figured I’d give it a go on dry skin. It took about 8 days, but it cleared up the dry skin perfectly. After that I realised that I had three blemishes on my cheeks that had remained after three awful spots had taken a while to clear. They had totally scarred my face and I could not for the life of me get rid of them. I decided to give this a go and really massaged a small amount of the product into the blemishes each morning and night. Within about 7 days, the blemishes had disappeared and I knew I was onto a winner.
The actual product is light and fresh and barely scented. If anything it just smells like natural, medicinal ingredients which actually makes me trust it more. Unfortunately they do not sell it in Aldi anymore, yet Asda sells it and I found it on Amazon from a seller based in Preston, the products are made here in Manchester. Good work! So I now apply this under my makeup everyday and most nights before bed. I love the way it feels on my skin and the fact that it is aimed at clearing dry skin and scars. The chances are that it has a number of great products inside that are brilliant at protecting and repairing the skin. And if not, I dont want to know. I think its amazing and I want to keep it that way :)
