I am a member of a product testing and review site called Bzzagent and was sent a full size bottle of 2 different E45 products along with some samples to share with my friends in return for our feedback on the products. One of the products I have tested is E45 lotion.
The lotion comes in a white bottle with a flip top lid, on the front it says in bog bold writing E45. E45 do many creams and lotions, this is their most simple and basic lotion and I have to say I love it!
The lotion is white and unscented, I am used to using a range of different lotions because I have a weak spot for nice smelling things, but it was actually a nice change to try something which is just a simple lotion with not scent to it.
I have mainly used the lotion at work, as I work in care I spend much of my shift wearing gloves, this plays havov with the skin on my hands and it is often sore and dry and cracked. So I started using the lotion regularly throughout my shift and I have really noticed a difference.
How well my skin reacted to the lotion made me wonder if I could use it on my face too - on the bottle it does say it is suitable for use on the face however I had some doubts as my facial skin is very sensetive, but again I was very pleased with the results. I have been able to use the lotion twice a day on my body and face and have found that my skin feels great and has a natural fresh glow to it - I have only been using it for a week and am really happy with the results.
The lotion absorbs well and does not leave any greasy layer as some lotions do, there is no scent left on the skin and really makes the skin feel hydrated.
The bottle is £4.50 in Sainsburys where I usually shop, but a quick look online shows that in Asda it is only £3 which I think is pretty good value. I have been using the cream once a day on my full body and twice a day on my face for the past week and have used about 1/4 of the bottle so I would say this bottle lasts around a month for someone like me who uses it liberally.
I definitely would recommend this to anyone who wants an efficient lotion at a reasonable price.
Summary: a nice simple yet effective lotion
