I wasn't planning to buy a moisturiser when I bought this but it was included in a travel sized selection of goods on three for two in Boots and I just bought this to keep in my handbag for emergency dry skin moments.
This is a 50 ml pot with a screw top lid and it is nicely coloured in cream and beige plastic. Inside the pot is a thick white cream with no extra lids or seals. It is a nice sized pot that fits in the palm of your hand and will last me ages as I probably won't have daily use from it.
I have had the Body Shop's Vitamin E range before and enjoyed using it so was fairly confident the Boots version would be OK. It says it gives rich and nourishing day moisturisation with antioxidant protection with 24 hour moisturisation. It is suitable for all skin types.
The cream is so thick it is easy to pick up a dab on your fingertips. You don't need a lot to do your face and neck and it rubs in easily. I did enjoy long lasting effects with this moisturiser and it also worked well underneath make up.
I paid £2.50 for this product in a 3 for 2 deal with Boots so got points as well. For this price I really don't think you can go wrong.
I think this moisturiser is OK and will most likely buy it again at this price. It is nice and thick and definitely one I would want to take on holiday with me. The only thing I would mention is that this is quite highly fragranced, a floral scent and I think this won't suit everyone (but I don't mind it). It reminds me a bit of M&S Magnolia range so from that point of view I guess it may be aimed at an older audience. This is a bit of a no frills product but definitely delivers long lasting moisture to skin. Recommended.
I picked up this moisturising cream in boots in a 2 for £4 offer, but have since bought it also in a 3 for 2 offer. It is an every day cream to moisturise your skin, with added Vitamin E which the pot claims to be an powerful antioxidant which helps protect skin from the damaging effects of the environment.
This is a very small pot of cream, it is only 50ml, however I was surprised at how long this cream lasted me. It has lasted me a good 2 and a half months, using it every morning before applying my make up. The cream in the pot looks slightly thick but when you dab some onto your finger, it feels really thin and creamy, and it spreads on your face really nice.
You only need a small amount, and my skin looks just as it did before I used it, but less dry. You cannot tell you have put it on your face, as it doesn't look greasy in any way. The cream makes your skin feel lovely and soft, and it has really helped with my dry skin on my forehead that I suffer from.
This is a great base also for my make up. The cream sinks into my skin straight away, so I have no waiting around in the morning getting ready like I usually have with other creams. I have no problem applying my make up straight after using this cream. The pot is so small, it fits in my make up bag perfectly, and it hardly weighs anything. It has a screw top lid which is really easy to undo and shut again, and fastens really securely, and this has never leaked in my make up bag.
I absolutely love this face cream and I am glad I found it. I will definitely be sticking with this one, my skin is so soft and well moisturised, and for such a small pot, it is so cheap and lasts so long! I highly recommend you try it!
Boots Vitamin E Moisturising Day Cream comes in a 50ml pot and retails between £2.50 and £3, however they are often on offer at two for £4. The pot has a peach coloured lid and the product itself is a very pale peach colour and smells quite clean, exactly like all of the other Vitamin E products that Boots make.
I bought this product just before Christmas, when I started getting dry patches on my face (something that happens every year around that time), and this was on the two for £4 offer, so I picked up a pack of their face wipes too.
This product is quite thick, but rubs in quickly, although it does leave a slight greasy sheen to my skin which isn't very attractive. However, this greasy sheen does protect your face from icy wind, even though it doesn't look great. The problem was that wherever I had dry patches (my nose, cheeks, chin and forehead), the product stung like crazy when applied. It worked fantastically once I got past the initial sting, but it wasn't exactly comfortable.
Overall, I do think that this is a good product to use if you have normal skin, if you apply it around 20 minutes before you need to go anywhere. I wouldn't recommend it to others who have dry skin patches as it hurts once applied.
About a year ago I started to think my skin looked a bit dry on my face. I used to just use any old moisturiser in the morning before my make-up, but I decided to get proper day and night cream. I don't know a whole lot about cosmetics and I never spend a lot of money on them so I just bought this Boots Vitamin E moisture cream. I bought a day and a night version for about £3 each for a 50ml tub. They are great value for money because I have used them almost every day for almost a year and I still have some left.
My skin is fairly normal with occasional dryness and I don't suffer from breakouts. I bought this because it says it is suitable for all skin types and it certainly works on mine. I apply it at night after I've taken my make-up off and in the morning after my shower and before I do my make-up. It's a white lotion with a slight peachy tint. It does contain Parfum fragrance and smells a bit like Johnson's Baby lotion, but it's not strong and doesn't linger on your face. It's not a greasy moisturiser and rubs in very easily with very little residue - the only place I get a bit of residue is if I rub it over my eyebrows and then try to immediately apply eyebrow pencil. I occasionally accidentally get some in my fringe when applying it to my forehead, but it rubs off without leaving a greasy patch.
After nearly a year of use I was convinced the day and night creams were the same, but having read the ingredients there is one very small difference; the night cream has shea butter in to keep you moisturised all through the night. The vitamin e in both creams is an antioxidant which protects the top layer of skin from pollution and damage while keeping it smooth and soft. It also reduces inflammation and the effects of sunburn.
The only disadvantage I have is that it tastes really bad. It tastes like strong shampoo and because I apply it all over my face I can sometimes taste it on my lips. Very very unpleasant, but it's not for eating so it's not really a criticism of the product - just something to watch out for.
This works very well and clears up any dryness straight after applying. For the price I will definitely be buying more when I run out as I don't see the need to splash out on anything fancier.
i have been using the boots vitamin e moisture cream for a few months and am very pleased with the results. I bought it on offer it was 3 vitamin e products for the price of 2 so i picked up the moisture cream, the vitamin e night cream and the eye cream. The 3 products altogether came to less than what my usual olay product would have cost me. It comes in a 50ml tub and claims "rich and nourishing daily moisturisation with antioxidant protection." It is suitable for all skin types and has a lovely creamy and thick texture, is a yellowy creamy colour and it feels like a high cost product would. It has an easy screw top lid and the cream is lightly fragrenced, smells nice and summery. My skin was in good condition before starting the use of this product, it has kept its good condition but feels a lot more supple and soft. The size of the pot means it is handy for fitting in a handbag and the pot has an attractive design. The cream contains wheatgerm oil which is what makes it so nourishing to the skin. I would definately recommend this product and will be continuing to use it.
Recently I was looking for a cheap moisturiser to replace my normal Garnier moisturiser, which I was feeling a bit disillusioned with as its performance just wasn't up to scratch. I noticed the new Vitamin E range on offer in Boots, with 2 items for £5, and decided to try it.
I purchased a Vitamin E day moisture cream and a Vitamin E night moisture cream, but as there is only a general moisture cream listed on the Boots website, I will be reviewing both items under this name. They are very similar anyway so it should be easy enough!
The day cream costs £2.49 for 50 ml and the night cream costs £2.99 for 50 ml. These prices are really impressive when compared to other mid range or even cheap moisturisers which often begin at at least £5 for 50 ml and can go way, way above that!
The description on the website for this cream is: 'Boots Vitamin E moisture cream contains Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, to help protect the skin against environmental damage. Naturally derived Wheatgerm Oil conditions, moisturises and nourishes the skin.'
The creams come in cute little beige pots. The pots aren't glass so this probably cuts down on the prices a little. They obviously don't look high end but they don't scream 'cheap' either, they are perfectly attractive!
Inside the pot is a white cream that has a nice delicate, inoffensive, classic smell to it. The day cream is slightly lighter than the night cream but they are otherwise very similar. The day cream spreads very easily into the skin and sinks in immediately, leaving skin soft and supple. The night cream takes a little longer to sink in and feels sticky for a minute or so, as you would expect from a slightly thicker cream.
The creams have a nice cooling sensation when used and I find that they moisturise better than my normal Garnier cream. After using them my skin feels nice and silky and I have suffered with less dry and itchy patches since starting to use this. I also think I may have slightly fewer spots!
These are really nice creams at an excellent price and I will definitely be purchasing them again. I am sure that they don't contain all the miracle ingredients of more expensive creams and if I was very well off then I would be using higher priced products as in the long run they will probably have a better effect. However I am not rich and so these creams will do fine for me for the time being!
I may even try some more products from the same range, as it includes a facial wash, facial wipes, other lotions and moisturisers and an eye cream. I would recommend this range to everyone looking for effective bugget skincare.
