Vitamin E – Moisture Cream

This week will be moisturiser-heavy, just warning you now. This is one I’ve used a few times over the years, it’s a basic face cream that does the job of hydrating without being greasy or leaving an unwanted residue. It’s relatively lightweight but it would be too heavy for me to use during the day, definitely something I would only use at night. It’s a nice size for travel, 50ml is fairly standard but the packaging is so compact it feels like less. I used to use the Vitamin E range a lot when I was younger, I guess I graduated from the Tea Tree and thought this would be more nourishing. It was and still is, a nice thing to have on stand by if my skin is reacting or breaking out to my regular routine as it’s really soothing. It’s formulated for all skin types but given that I am pretty oily right now it’s feeling a little heavy so it will go in the cupboard ’til the Winter cold deems my skin dry enough to need it.

Available online for £4.00 here and for those drier skinned girls there’s a heavier night cream available too.

    I’m a massive fan of the Body Shop’s Aloe Vera moisturiser but this one looks lovely too! I’ll definitely have to try this soon 🙂 x

      I’ve never tried the aloe vera but I can imagine it would be a great for my friend that has eczema, will tell her about it.

    I have been using this for a couple of years. My brother always buys it for my Xmas in a gift set. I like it for the colder months. Its really creamy & very nourishing. I always recommend it
