Search for the perfect moisturiser

Posted by Buls on 8:05 PM in , , ,
I am always searching for the perfect moisturiser. This is what 'Mr/Ms Perfect' should have:
- should be gel like... very light... since I have oily skin
- should not have an overpowering fragrance
- should moisturise (but obviously)... specially cover the dry patches
- will help if it can improve skin quality
- should not be very expensive... I am not willing to spend 1000 bucks on a moisturiser

I have not stayed loyal to any moisturiser till date. I decided to try something from Body Shop 2 months back.
I bought the Seaweed mattifying day cream for Rs 995 for 49 gm.
It comes in a plastic tub and so is easy to carry around. It claims to 'moisturise dry areas, control excess sebum and shine'.

The product is gel like in texture but feels creamy on application. It gets absorbed easily and becomes matte. It stays matte for most of the day. It is a good moisturiser for the summer but in the winter it is not moisturising enough. It does not cover dry patches.

Also, there is no additional benefit to the skin- does not improve skin texture or reduce pores or have SPF.

Will I re-purchase? No. It is too expensive without any additional benefits and definitely not to be used in the winter... even for oily skinned people.
