Research with leading dermatologist Dr Tabi Leslie indicates that 1 in 5 women are embarrassed by their dry skin, a complaint which can affect all ages. Astral is also very reasonably priced, the key stockist is Superdrug and it retails at the following prices:
· 50ml – ‘the handbag pot’, which is perfect for on-the-go indulgence (£1.52)
· 200ml – with all the different uses of Astral, many women get a few 200ml pots and keep one by the bed, one in the bathroom, one by the kitchen sink or any place where Astral might come in handy (£4.28)
· 500ml – Astral prides itself on being a premium quality product with a great value price (£8.16). With the 500ml pot, women get even more for their money. [I’ve seen the 500ml in my local black hair shop (Asian owned) for £5!]
After a couple of days using the cream, I received compliments left and right. My mom rushed out to buy it upon hearing it was the old favourite, Astral all over moisturiser!!!
Joanna Lumley says: “I’m thrilled to try all sorts of face firmers and wrinkle-reduction creams, but the one I always come back to is plain, simple Astral cream.
