an economically moisturised face!

A really successful tried-and-tested ££ saving tip-

I've changed my night time moisturiser
for a bottle of Almond Oil
costing just £2.50 from the chemist.

It lasts for ages, is wonderfully hydrating
for dry ("mature" [ugh I hate that word]) skin
and you can add a few drops of essential oil
to the bottle if you yearn for girly scent.

And that's not all;
after you've massaged all those wrinkles
dab the leftover oil on your cuticles!

However. If anyone in your household owns and plays wooden craftsman made recorders (or similar), hide you almond oil lest they use it to oil their descant, tenor or bass when you're not looking.....

Almond oil? I have a bottle in my cupboard, obviously from some (never happened) beauty idea. I'll give it a try if I remember (usually I fall asleep while brushing my teeth).

I can hardly wait to try this, my skin hates most creams so the wrinkles are taking full advantage. Thanks sooooo much! xo

Not for me, I'm allergic to products containing almond, tried it once and my face was red swollen and burning :-(
Oww, all those wrinkles :-)
Nice weekend, Elaine !

Mmmmn - nice idea Elaine but oils make my skin 'break out'. Truth be told I never use nightcreams. Actually I rarely take my make-up off at night either (!) It was after I read a (Dr)Miriam Stoppard article where she said why take your make up off to go to bed with your lover? And I agree!!!

I bet it smells so lovely too. Thanks for the tip, I will have to add that to my long list. I'm in the middle of Christmas shopping! Oh it's such fun, is it not? Just trying to get motivated here.

Oooooo Elaine you will smell like marzipan and have skin as smooth as it's surface too :) I love almonds, and I am sure they are just as good for your skin if you eat them too!

Inspired idea. I will give it a shot. My skin needs all the help it can get.

Like The CLoth Shed I still use Nivea and baby oil to remove all traces of make up, I'll try almind oil though as it'll have a lovely smell :o)

Great tip! I use Bio Oil - cheapish, lasts for ages & really combats the drying out of you sking from being outdoors a lot in winter.

That is SO interesting...in France, when person has to be in hospital for eg an operation, massage therapy is always given - using almond oil! A physio-therapist I know says it isn't expensive and gives such great results

Great tip! Thank you for that one.. thank you also for your bloggie comment. Might put my feet up between the Shepton Flea and... who knows!!! xx

It is also nice as bath oil I find - especially with a few drops of lavender oil.

Sounds good to me.
Love to Kit! and thank you for turning me onto Fading Grace..her new little Tortitude is so precious..I need to get me another Tortitude! ♥

It's brilliant for taking your makeup off too as its not astringent but does cleanse the skin due to it's natural oils rather than synthetic "oil strippers". I love using almond oil on my skin too.
