I don’t know about you but any product that mentions it contains vitamins, minerals, SPH or even sea weed I’m sold. It’s something about those words that scream healthy and helpful. Could Superdrug’s Vitamin E range scream it any louder?
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that neutralizes the oxidant effect of free radicals (molecules that damage collagen and steal healthy cells causing dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles).Therefor Vitamin E is an essential fat soluble needed for skin reproduction. Now you’re sold right?
The Vitamin E skin care range is huge. But I decided to pick up my beauty basics of moisturises and exfoliators.
The product itself is a creamy lumpy texture that contains oatmeal and horse chestnut to gently exfoliate the skin. I’ve always hated facial scrubs that utter the words ‘gentle exfoliation’ as sometimes the beads or granules are so fine and soft that they barely rid makeup let alone remove the top layer of dry/ dead skin. But even through the silky like cream I could feel the natural crushed materials buffing the outer layer. And although bits of oatmeal did scattered my sink as I was scrubbing away, it did leave my skin feeling super soft and plump without being too harsh. 8/10
Now this stuff reminds me of holiday, the smell although isn’t too strong takes a liking to sun cream but that’ll be because Vitamin E is a main ingredient in SPH creams. I purchased the intensive moisturiser because I’m a sucker for buying a cream that has that little added extra help and look at the size of that tub! The product is quite thick and so you needn’t scoop up too much but it sinks in a dream. Although it states 24hrs moisture I’d say it only lasted me about 8hrs before I noticed my skin drying a little. Although I did use this under a BB cream and my skin looked flawless and hydrated for the whole day. 7/10
I’ve now been through 2 large tubes of this stuff and it has become a personal favourite. The texture is a thick formula and so unlike most body scrubs the product clings to the skin so you aren’t left with half of it on the shower floor. The ingredients contain crushed horse chestnut and apricot kernels that once applied you can feel scrubbing at the skin to remove the top layer. I like the fact you can really feel the chestnut and kernels lightly scraping over the skin but without being too harsh as it left my body feeling and looking really clean and soft. The only negative comment I can make about this product is due to the thickness you really have to squeeze the tube with force. 9/10
First things first the tub is huge considering the small price tag of £2.99 and it has lasted me quite a while. Again the texture is very similar to the Intensive Moisturising Face Cream but maybe slightly thicker but then again it’s a body cream. When massaging it into the skin the product sinks in almost instantly and leaves a soft but non greasy feel. It did leave my skin hydrated for the whole day until showering but since discovering body oils I’ve noticed that it isn’t as intense as I’d prefer but still deserves an 8/10.
I’ve heard great reviews about the hot cloth cleanser and body oil so I will be buying more from Superdrug’s Vitamin E range.
