Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Range

Skin Care Review #1

From around the age of 12, I have always had really bad acne prone skin. I would say it has pretty much stayed the same for years (by years, I'm talking over a decade now.. scary stuff!) but for the past month I have been using the Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care range along with some medication from the doctors and to my ever so happy delight its actually the only product that has started to give me a clear glowing complexion! It's still not perfect, but its 100 times better than it ever has been. And I mean to the point I'm no longer worrying about popping to the local shop without a face full of make up! I've always been dead weary of skin products as my skin is so sensitive, but this really is amazing, and at the price of the products, you really can't complain!

001. Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Oil 30ml (£2.99) I had heard great reviews about this product, so while it was on offer at just £1.99 I decided why not give it a go and I have to say it is now my favourite skin care product, ever! The oil contains vitamin E which is known for its strong antioxident properties.I use this every night after cleansing, toning and moisturising. I find that when I wake up the next morning my skin is soft, smooth, more radiant, and even better is any acne blemishes have been reduced. Really worth giving it a go!

002. Superdrug Vitamin E Night Cream 100ml (£2.99) As I have dry yet oily / acne prone skin I was a bit skeptical about buying a product that is so nourishing incase I had more breakouts. However after using the skin oil religiously and my skin continuing to improve, I decided to give it a go and switch from my usual 'Simple' night cream. This product claims to provide the following ''12 hour moisturisation. Naturally sourced Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which not only revitalises and protects the skin, it also helps combat the damaging effects of free radicals and shields it against the environment''. And I have to say it does exactly what it says on the tub! You only need the smallest amount as it is so rich, and when I wake up in the morning I find my skin is beautifully smooth and ready for the day ahead. Again I really recommend this product if you haven't already tried it!

003. Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser 200ml (£3.99) I'm so so sooo excited to tell you about this product! Its actually a miracle in a bottle haha! It comes in large 200ml bottle as well as a muslin cloth for the bargain price of just £3.99! Now I haven't used the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, however I have heard this product is just as good for a fraction of the price. It has a lovely cocoa butter type scent which I wasn't expecting, but the itself is a gorgeous thick, creamy texture and is brilliant for removing all traces of make up at the end of a long day. The muslin cloth is comes with is what you would expect for the price, I decided to invest in some Liz Earle ones though as I've used them in the past, and these in combination with the cleanser give great results! I feel it leaves your skin refreshed and exfoilated with visible results. Overall I think its a brilliant product, even more so because of the price!

Bit a of a ramble on I know but I've really enjoyed using these products over the past month so I thought I would share my thoughts on them. Have you used any of the Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Range and what do you think?

  1. This range is my faaaaavourite! I'm obsessed with it, you should try the Intense Moisture cream from this range, it's SO thick, i put it on as a kind of thin mask before bed and it sinks in dead quick so there's no pillow stickage! plus by the morning my skin is radiant :) Only £1.99 at the moment i think too
