Recently my bestfriend/flatmate bought us both a load of stuff each from the Lloyds Pharmacy range as she spotted lots of their beauty products heavily reduced recently. This product usually retails at £4.99 but my mate got us one each at the price of £1 a tub and I couldn't wait to get it tried out!
50ml of this cream comes in a frosted glass, round shaped tub with a white plastic frosted lid to the top of it which simply screws on and off. On the front label which is white and turquoise in colour we are told that it is Lloyds Pharmacy 'Your Organics' Anti-Ageing Night Cream '2 in 1' and that it contains Vitamin E and that it is 99% natural and the size is listed (as I've stated already). Other information on the back of the tub lists the ingredients used, being told how to use it and contact details for Lloyds are given. Simple looking, informative enough tub this is and very unisex looking in its style as it looks so basic so suitable really for anyone to buy and use!
The Cream Itself:
Well the cream itself is actually a very light beigey colour and reasonably thick with what I can only describe as a rather odd smell to it but saying that, that odd smell is rather fresh and not all that apparant anyway but sorry no idea what it smells like I can only say it isn't loral or fruity or anything in your face like that!
A small amount of this goes a very long way indeed. You simply apply it to a thoroughly cleansed face and it is so mild you can rub it gently into all over your face (including on and around sensitive eyes). It melts on touch with the skin and sinks in within a minute of finishing massaging it in and leaves skin feeling moisturised from the inside out and soft to the touch. Its very lightweight, none sticky so you can forget it is there and go to sleep and let it get to work!
I have had no skin irritations at all since using this and my skin does in fact feel in better condition. I can't report it has taken any years off me or softened lines/wrinkles or stopped any new ones arriving but like I say my skin does feel more comfortable and elasticated and smoother to the touch.
At £4.99 a tub (the usual price) I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this again but then I wouldn't tell you to avoid it either.... however the results you see and feel with this are minimal so I'd say for a quid its a brilliant buy but add more money to an anti ageing product if you really do expect more!
Only available in Lloyds chemists, £4.99 a tub.
