So my Gran is 72 and she looks absolutely amazing, hardly any wrinkles. People always gasp when they hear that she is 72 years old, people assume she is in her fifties. My gran brags about only ever using astral cream! She started using it at the age of 16, she tells people that she believes it minimised the amount of wrinkles she has and that is why her skin looks so good! I am a teenager myself, so I decided to use it. I bought it two weeks ago and there is no going back, it is the best... (read more)

Started using Astral for make-up removal when I was about 15years old as my Mother always used it. Have used it ever since and find it the best product around.Some years ago I found Astral lotion, which was brilliant for day time wear. Sadly it was discontinued, but now I find Astral Light is available,so very happy I can stick with the Astral brand. I am now 66years old and my skin is very good with hardly any wrinkles despite doing a lot of smiling/laughing!!! (read more)

I have been using Astral cream since I was 15 and am now 56. I have tried every expensive face creams out there and nothing compares to Astral.

After 40 years of using astral and trying others in the meantime, it's the Astral cream that keeps my face looking fresh and young looking. Glides on gently and re hydrates effectively. ill get gasps of surprise when folk are told my true age - 61. Well done Astral for being there for the girls all this time and not short changing us.

I have been using Astral cream for as long as I can remember. I am age 72yrs. I use Astral cream first thing in the morning and last thing at night for clensing. I prefer the original Astral cream but I like the lighter one for moisturising my body. I put the Astral cream on my face fairly generously and then remove with soft tissues.

I've tried all sorts of moisturisers over the years, some very expensive, but I always go back to my tried and trusted Astral. I started using my mum's when I was a teenager, and 40 years on, I still use it every day. I've got very dry skin and most moisturisers just melt into my skin and leave it feeling dry and tight again within minutes. Astral rehydrates my skin and keeps it feeling good all day. If I'm putting make up on, I leave it for 20 mins before applying foundation, otherwise it... (read more)

I have used "Astral Cream" for over 30 years. It's a wonderful cream for a moisturiser, also to use under make-up. I would buy it in England when every I visited my Mother. I no longer go to England, and would love to know where to buy it in Ontario Canada. If any one knows where to buy it I would appreciate it. There's nothing I don't like about this cream, except I can't buy it. (read more)

This is a great moisturiser which I have been using since I was a teenager. I am now 31 and still get ID'd on occasion when going to buy alcohol so I think it does a great job of keeping skin looking youthful. As others have said it is quite greasy, and in summer months it is a bit much to put on in the morning. I still use it then but sort of 'rinse' the excess off with a splash of cold water after a few minutes. (read more)

This product is just an amazing,I've been tried so many products b4, but nothing like astral.
I'm extremely happy with it,after read so many good reviews.
It's very cheap and very good,So why not give it a go.
I used the original one on my body and hands and light one on my face
But if you use it on your face I'd suggested small amount otherwise goes flaky.

Astral Moisturising Cream is a lovely lovely cream!
I've been searching for a good face cream which leaves your skin feeling hydrated and moisturised.
I went into panic mode after the Body Shop finished making their vitamin e rich night cream which id been using for the last 20 odd years.
I've tried lots of other creams in hope I'd find another just as good, but none seemed to do the trick, they were just not thick enough and they seemed to absorb into the skin much too quickly leaving my... (read more)

On the whole Astral is a good moisturising cream, but I do feel that it could become GREAT if only the texture was a little softer! When you are applying it you feel that you are pulling your skin all over the place just to get it absorbed satisfactorily!
Also, why on earth don't they make the pot more attractive, rather than looking like something that looks more at home on the odds and ends shelf of the local chemist! If the two points above were taken into consideration, I reckon far... (read more)
