I am a moisturising addict - I confess, I've been applying cream to my face and neck since I was about 15 years old. As I get older, the need to introduce more moisture into my skin becomes ever more important, so I'm always happy to try out creams, lotions, serums, any product that holds out the hope of better looking skin, fewer wrinkles (laugh lines), or staving off that dreaded turkey neck.
My neck is one of my sore points - in that it is the place that bluntly demonstrates in the mirror that I'm getting older. Looking at the skin on my neck sometimes makes me want to weep - you see in my head, I'm still 18. So I'm big, big, big on neck creams.
Therefore I was very happy indeed to try the Q10 moisturising milk and Q10 neck cream by DHC.
I was impressed with the look and feel of the milk as it has the texture and lightness of a serum. Unfortunately for me, it isn't rich enough and doesn't seem to have any effect on my skin at all. I reckon it would be great for somebody in their 20s, but sadly that's no longer me.
The neck cream however I like. I'm not too keen on the fragrance (perhaps that's because it doesn't have a fragrance) but the cream seems to improve the texture of the skin on my neck, even taking away a few lines temporarily. It's light, non-greasy (despite the face it contains olive oil) and it sinks in fast. A keeper I think.
