"I'm in my 50s and the Dermalist All Serum Skin Perfector has been my game changer this year. My skin was looking grey and unhappy. I knew if I had a complicated routine that it wouldn’t work for me, but I purchased it and got into the habit religiously, and it paid dividends.

"I even venture out (occasionally) without makeup, I feel so pleased with the look and feel of my skin. Nothing in it for me, I just love the product." - Karen.

Redwin Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser, $9.99.

"For my 47 years young sensitive skin, I have found that Avene range to be really lovely to use. The savey Redwin Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser is also great. The SPF is also 100 per cent on point." - Mel.

Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner, $11.95.

"Another favourite of mine is the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. My mum was an EA beautician so our family has been using it since before I was born. We all have at least two tubes in our houses so it is always accessible." - Kate.

Alpha H Liquid Gold, $59.46.

"A couple of other staples is the Alpha H Liquid Gold and Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Daily Moisturiser SPF50. Both of these products I have repurchased more than 10 times. I cannot see me ever replacing them." - Kate.

"It's certainly pricey, but the Teoxane RHA Serum would have to be my favourite skincare pick. I've tried a lot of different products, but I feel this just works for my skin. It makes my (usually dry) skin feel hydrated, smoother and brighter." - Monica.

"I often wake with puffy eyes and I slather on Natio Eye Gel (it's amazing!) while I make my coffee. I also love the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Hydrating Eye Mask, $55, for a shot of moisture." - Luisa.

"I’m a self-confessed fan of Solarcare Vitamin B3. I’ve been using the original which has five per cent niacinamide in it, and have just bought their new one, which has 10 per cent niacinamide. I have a touch of rosacea and it took the redness out. I’m now working on my pigmentation spots. [It feels] lovely and light on my 50+ mature skin." - Carmel.

"I’m 42 and a half, and just discovered Dose & Co Collagen to put in my coffee and it’s made a huge difference!" - Grace.

"It’s a great all rounder, has vitamin A and C but still suitable for day use, and great for sensitive skin. My skin is plumper and I find it’s enough on its own or it can be layered. Absorbs well and feels hydrating. Can you tell I love it?!" - Lana.
