You mom may take thirty minutes to type a text back but never doubt her beauty routine. The truth is that there are some products that have been around since way before she was born, and their results can be equal to some of the latest launches!
We searched for products that have been around for years and the best is that they work. Check down below some of these.
1. NIVEA CREAM
- Price: 4€
- Best for: Dry, dehydrated skin
Many people swear this is ‘the dupe’ for the (very exclusive and expensive) La Mer Cream. Well, I have to say that until this day my grandmother uses this cream every night, and her skin sometimes glows more than mine. When I talked with her, she said she used to use this cream before and after going to the beach. That time there were no SPF creams, so she used a big layer of Nivea cream (omg!!). Today we have a lot of good options with better SPF, of course. What we advise is to use this cream as a body moisturizer everyday, and after a day in the sun, we promise you’ll feel your skin soothe before your eyes. On the face…well…it all depends on what’s your skin type, because while dry skins swear this cream does wonders, oily skins may not think the same…
2. DOVE BEAUTY BAR
Best for: All types of skin
Known by its formula (1/4 of it is made of a moisturizing cream), Dove cream is the number one dermatologist recommended bar soap. Why? It effectively cleanses the skin without stripping it of essential oils and moisture. And can you guess it’s age? 60 years old!!
3. VASELINE INTENSIVE CARE LOTION
Best for: Dry
This line was born in the 1960s, and since then has launched a lot more products all designed to gently draw moisture to the skin. Who doesn’t know about Vaseline Intensive Lotion?

7. CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER

The gentle skin cleanser was first formulated in 1947 and since then it has become a suggested product by doctors, skincare pros, editores and beauty gurus.
