My Top 3 Day Creams

Day Creams are hard to find, to suit my combination (to dry) skin type.
They either leave my skin with a film of cream on it, which means I then have to use a primer; or they are not moisturising enough and my skin still feels dry, and then my foundation sticks to the dry patches. (not a good look!)
I think I've found 3 day creams that offer the moisturisation my dry skin needs, but are the sort of creams that sink in quickly and enable me to apply my foundation without any problems.
So here's my top 3 Day Creams, let me know if you've tried any of these brands before?
Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream (below)
'Here30ml £40.00
Famous with celebrities, the Elemis Pro collagen marine cream has won countless awards.
It helps with hydration, increased collagen support and wrinkle depth.
What’s more you can see results within 15 days of use.
 I use this moisturiser if all else fails with my other day cream moisturisers.  Pro Collagen is an extreme light in texture, but intensely hydrating formula.  Your skin simply drinks it in!  
Serum Vegetal (below) from Yves Rocher
I blogged about the Serum Vegetal range a few weeks back 'Here'.  It’s a fab range of products and I regularly slot in either the night cream or day cream into my regime.
£21.00 for 50ml with a free night cream 'Here'
The Day Cream is very light and easily absorbed and is the perfect base for make-up.  I reach for this every morning, simply because there’s no faffing around and I know that my foundation will sink in regardless of how little I put on.
It smells lovely and refreshing too, which is a bonus and wakes me up as I apply it to my face every morning.  I think that the Yves Rocher skincare range will go from strength to strength in the UK. They offer products that do exactly what they say they do, with an affordable price tag.  
With science into each product built in for good measure!
L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream £46.00 for 50ml 'Here' (below)
I received this sample size of Immortelle a few weeks back.  I am an avid L'Ocittane follower so I was very much aware of the power of the Immortelle plant.  It corrects wrinkles, and restores firmness to the skin.  It has triple action formula that offers long lasting anti-ageing protection.
I really liked the light consistency of this crème, but the smell for some reason bothered me?
It smelt very flowery, and I think that’s the only reason I ended up going back to the Yves Rocher equivalent.  Other than that, it’s a great anti-ageing moisturiser that can be used during the day or at night time.
So what's your go-to day cream?  Have you tried any of my favourites?
