I bought this Superdrug Vitamin E Night Cream on somewhat of whim whilst on a recent trip into town. I have used and been impressed with Superdrug’s own brand skincare before and have been needing a new moisturiser for a while so I thought I’d try out this one.
I’ve mentioned a few times before that I am going cruelty free. Now this is a long process for me because I can’t simply throw away products that are not cruelty free because – well, bitch I ain’t that rich. So I am slowly using up these products and replacing them with CF products.
For the longest time, over 4 years to be exact, I have been using Avene Hydrance Optimale Rich Cream and really loving it. I’ve mentioned it on my blog multiple times, even in one of my first ever posts. And I do still think it is a good product. I’ve repurchased it over 30 times after all, so I would recommend it if you are not bothered about whether a product is tested on animals or not. But my stock (yes I used to stock buy it when it was on sale) was finally nearing an end and I needed to try out a new moisturiser.
Luckily, the first and only one I’ve tried is great and I’m happily sticking with it now.
“Superdrug’s Vitamin E Moisturising Night Cream provides 24 Hour Moisturisation. High in antioxidants. Defends the skin against environmental damage.”
In case you are unaware Vitamin E has been having a major moment in skincare and rightly so. Here is just a quick list of some of its skin benefits.
- Nourishing & moisturising
- Lightens scars
- Minimise stretch marks
- Reverses signs of ageing
- Promotes healthy skin
- Minimise dark circles
- Protects the skin from sun damage
- Protects against free radicals
- Prevents wrinkles
- Treats chapped lips
My first experience trying Superdrugs Own Brand Skincare was after purchasing their Natural Radiant Glycolic Toner. I enjoyed this enough that I repurchased it along with a few other products. Just to quickly surmise my thoughts on all of these products; I like them. So if you are interested in finding a new skincare brand that is super affordable, cruelty free and actually good, then head over to Superdrug.
Review: Superdrug Vitamin E Night Cream
This 100ml tub costs £2.99! For that alone I’d say it’s worth buying.
I am actually so impressed with this moisturiser. Side note: why are moisturisers called night creams or hydrators or lotions now? When did the word ‘moisturiser’ become not descriptive enough?
It kind of smells like suncream to me, but it’s not unpleasant or overpowering. I haven’t found it to clog my pores like some products do and I have suffered from no extra breakouts in the couple of months I’ve been using it. It leaves me with soft, plump and just overall healthy looking skin the following morning.
It’s consistency is on the thicker side and a small amount goes a long way. It’s not sticky or tacky and feels very silky when applying. It dries nicely, soaking into the skin and is really moisturising. It claims to keep your skin hydrated for 24 hours and I would say that’s more than a fair description. Whilst I have only used it during the Summer months I do think it would be more than capable of keeping my skin soft and moisturised come Winter too, especially as it is formulated for normal to dry skin.
Vitamin E can provide protection against damaging free radicals that cause premature wrinkling and damage our cells and DNA. This damage can play a role in the developing of cancer and other health issues. So where possible it is best to limit the damage that free radicals can cause. I’m obviously not saying that using a Vitamin E cream will prevent skin cancer altogether; but when you are moisturising anyways and Vitamin E is a good source for nourishing your skin, why wouldn’t you use it over something else?
Overall this is a great product and amazing value for money. I will be repurchasing it again and all of my family members who have tried it have gone and bought their own too.
I tell you, each time I buy from Superdrug’s own skincare range I want to try more from them. If you haven’t yet tested them out I really think you should, especially conisdering that most of their products cost around £2.99 and they usually have deals on them.
Have you ever tried Superdrugs Skincare? And what have you thought?
