I have often read about how good Vitamin E is good for you and how it should be part of your skincare routine - among its many benefits are its antioxidant properties protecting the skin from cell damaging free radicals. UV light, pollution and other nasties are all things that can age your skin prematurely and using Vitamin E regularly helps protect it. Vitamin E helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Taken orally it also has benefits.
I seemed to ignore all this advice and didn't really think of trying it for whatever reason, I suppose preferring to get en-wrapped in the glamorous advertising and packaging of the more prestigious brands and trying many many moisturisers and not really being happy with the results and wondering if I will ever find a great moisturiser. Having reached my early thirties and reading again about the importance of Vitamin E I decided to purchase a Vitamin E based moisturiser and at the price that I found the Superdrug one, well if I wasn't happy it wasn't a real hole in the purse and I am really excited to tell you about my latest find..
This product is fantastic, it delivers what it says it will do on the jar - 12 hours of moisturisation. It is quite thick, but I think to get the benefits of the SPF15 it should be applied generously. When I usually apply a moisturiser my skin feels tight about 10 minutes after application but this made my skin feel soft and great all day. It gave a lovely healthy glow on application which I thought was super and my skin lapped it up supplying a great base for the rest of my skincare and make up regime. The scent is a light coconut which reminded me of suncream but I although I am not a fan generally of that smell it wasn't lasting. I think for the surprisingly low price it really delivers and I urge you to try it too.
