Advantages: Packaging, the product itself
Disadvantages: Price is a much. Appears greasy afterwards
First of all I'd like to say that I never used to moisterise my face. I thought that Nivea Creme was the only moisteriser available and was oblivious of any others. I disliked Nivea Creme as it left my face incredibly shiney for AGES and didn't rub in very well etc. So when a friend suggested this I gave it a go. Moisterising your face should be part of anybody's daily routine especially those with eczma and other dry skin issues and will keep skin moisterised and supple, it will also improve skin circulation as you rub it in and massage your face.
E45 os a well trusted company that has been around for absolute YEARS. My mum used to use it on me when I was a baby 18 years ago and E45 has become a house hold name. They do mostly moisterisers for anything such as feet, nappy rash, face, body etc.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that might not work and so I got the 200ml bottle which has a cap lid, rather than the larger bottle with a pump lid. I decided to buy a little water spray bottle so I could put some into it and still have that lid, and it worked.
I bought this 200ML bottle from Boots for £2.58 which can be considered a little pricey, but you can use this for absolutely anything and will last a long time.
The product comes in a clean looking white bottle with E45's usual blue writing. It says it's perfume free which is a bonus as I have very sensitive skin, and it also has a use by date of 12 months after opening.
Applitcation: After I had taken off all my make up and pinned my hair back, I used this on my face and neck and found it very easy to apply. Unlike Nivea Creme, E45 is very easily spread onto the face and so you need less of it which will make it last longer. The product dried quite quickly, no walking around the house for 10 minutes before you can do anything! The product left my skin very soft and supple, including my hands.
What I thought:
I absolutely love this product. Especially, I lke using a little of it then applying my foundation in the mornings as it gives my skin a nice glow. I have found after I've been using it more regularly that it leaves my skin slightly greasy, which will probably vary from person to person as I have oily skin anyway. The product also didn't smell and went on clear on my face which is good if you're in a rush. In all I think this product is great and an absolute must have.
Summary: Great. Loved it
