I recently reviewed Superdrug's Natural High Radiance Balm, which is a product I really like. So when I discovered the Natural High range on offer for two products for a fiver, I decided to snap up a tub of this cream, along with a tub of night cream. At full price, this cream is £4.99, so my night cream cost a mere 1p. Result! Even at full price these are not priced at all badly, as the tub is 75ml so a good size for the price. The packaging, as with all the range - which is available just in Superdrug - is a nice, very pale green with simple illustrations - this tub has a leaf on the top. It's very inoffensive packaging that's easy on the eye, and I guess it reflects the low price. The cream claims to be naturally high in aloe vera (which soothes and firms the skin), cereal extract (to hydrate, soften and prevent premature ageing), ceramides (to improve the skin's firmness) and French rose petals (to decrease the damage caused by the environment). The cream is dermatologically tested and suitable for vegetarians. It's simple screw-top tub, and inside the cream is pure white and looks very rich and thick. The smell of the cream is really lovely - clean, fresh and slightly fruity. I find the scent very pleasant and this makes applying the cream all the more enjoyable! The cream itself is as it appears - very rich and creamy and it's a thicker texture than other day creams I've used. It's easy to rub into skin and it feels pleasant - soft and smooth. It absorbs into the skin instantly leaving skin immediately feeling softer and smoother. I love using this cream. Although I wouldn't say it has any instant, magical effects on the appearance of my skin, it is very pleasant to use and a great moisturiser. It also smells lovely and leaves my skin feeling soft all day. For £5, I would say this is a fantastic day cream and, if it does help slow down the ageing process then that's just an added bonus! It's also a really good cream for dry skin as it is so rich, and it's a perfect day cream for the winter months, as that cold weather wreaks havoc on our skin. Thanks for reading!
