On a trip to Superdrug some months ago I ventured out and bought the Vitamin E Skin Care cream as they had an offer on all their products and I was looking to save some money. It had served me well as I bought a 475ml tub for only £2.99 and it has lasted me 3 months so far and I have only used 1/3 of the tub! I am forever browsing in Superdrug so on a recent trip I saw the tub of Vitamin E SPF 15 moisturising cream and decided to buy it as Superdrug had a buy one get one free offer so I got this tub for free! The cream comes in a simple large beige tub, with a basic, but well designed label with the Superdrug star for the brand and has a screw top lid. The packaging can look a bit bland, but it actually sits quite well and nicely amongst the toiletries in my bathroom and is simple but effective. I like tubs as I can easily scoop my hand in and get what I need too! The cream is really quite soft and gentle and we use it for all the family, from my 4 year old all the way up to me! I predominantly use it on my face and find it leaves my skin well nourished and moisturised. It is a nice base for make up as it absorbs in well and leaves my face refreshed and smooth. The tub states it has 12 hour moisturisation and is suitable for normal to dry skin. On my face I can get quite a greasy nose and T Zone and I find this cream has reduced this somewhat so it has done a good job for a really low price! The cream is an off white colour, with a very whipped texture and although it smells quite neutral it also has a soft perfumed smell, which reminds me of diluted cocoa butter. The texture is slightly runny, so if you dropped the tub it would splatter everywhere, but has some thickness so it can be picked up with two fingers and rubbed all over. It isn't greasy, so is a great consistency. Overall, I think this cream is brilliant and would recommend it in a heartbeat. Buying at the full RRP it costs £2.99 for a 100ml tub which I do think is overpriced as I got the large tub which is suitable for the "all over body" cream for the same price at 475ml! I can't complain too much as I got this for free in a deal Superdrug were having so I certainly advise any potential buyers to wait for the offers instore!
I have quite temperamental skin. I started getting spotty last year when I was pregnant and now after giving birth my skin is a lot drier than it used to be so I rely on a moisturiser to give it some life back. I actually bought this moisturiser around 2 years ago and have been using it every day/every other day since then so this little pot goes a long long way. It cost under £3 when I bought it but I can't remember its exact price. The packaging is nice and simple in its design in neutral colours. It has a screw on lid which I do not like. I find it easier when moisturisers are in a tube so you can squeeze out the cream but this is a personal preference and I will not deduct any stars for it. To use you have to dip your finger into the tub and then dollop it on to your face. I use around a fingertips size blob of cream to do my whole face. It is lovely and cooling when applied on the face and absorbs easily with no greasiness. The after effects aren't great. I find that my skin feels dry again after an hour and dry patches start to appear around my nose and on my cheeks. With previous moisturisers this hasn't happened. I may have high expectations but I expect my moisturiser to hydrate my skin for a good few hours. Due to the price of this moisturiser, I wasn't expecting it to be the best that I have ever used. I won't be repurchasing it as I think my skin needs something a little more hydrating but I would recommend it to anyone on a tight budget with normal skin.
=Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturising Cream= I do mix and match the creams, that I use on my face, as I do get dry skin, and find that some items are better suited to me than others, and sometimes the budget allows for luxury, others not so luxury moments. =Previous= About 15 years ago I use to use Superdrug brands regulary, so thought I would give them another try, and the product was Vitamin E moisturising cream. =Choices= I was really impressed to find that there was 3 choices within the range, more 2 if you narrow it down to day and night. The day cream, you can purchase with or without built in SPF15/ =Tube= The cream comes in a 100ml plastic tube, and this has a screw top, the whole range of Vitamin E is colour coded, with the Vitamin E, this colour is a like a beige colour, and the logo is a large E which is within an orange teardrop these are on the lower part of the tube. =Opening= This is where the product loses a star, as I was a bit surprised that there was not any seal on the tube, so really anyone could have gone across and opened the tube and tried the product. I always get one from the back. =SPF= The containers are almost identical, you have to look closely as the SPF15 is printed in small font, so its make sure you've got your glasses on! =Product Information (from the tube) Superdrug's Vitamin E SPF 15 moisturising day cream is designed for normal to dry skin. It provides sun protection factor 15 protection (a mid-range strength) and claims to contain vitamin E and natural antioxidants which defend the skin against environmental damage. It is designed to be effective for 12 hours after application. =Using the cream= I choose the cream with the SPF, as there are times where I don't put the full slap of make up on, or trowel full as my daughter would say, and having this built in SPF, just helps the skin. =The Cream= The cream is white, it i quite thick when you squeeze some out of the tube, but once you start applying the cream becomes more workable and is easy to apply, as though when it gets into contact with the skin, that it warms up and melts, you only need a little amount of these cream on. =My Thoughts= I was really impressed with this lotion, I would have paid around £2 for it, My skin felt soft and rehydrated, a little went a long way, what I did was swop this around with my Body Shop cream so that my skin was still getting Vitamin E, but at different ends of the price bracket. This really held its own.and a 100ml is priced a £2.99, which is excellent value. =Would I recommend= I would highly recommend this lotion it worked amazingly on my Winter Skin.
In one of my recent money saving efforts, I was searching for a moisturiser in Superdrug, and decided to try their own brand. On its own, this one costs £2.99 for a 100ml tub, but the range is often on offer so you can buy two items from the range for just £4. Bargain! The moisturiser comes in a tub which allows you to get best use out of the product and use every last bit. It claims to offer 12 hour moisturisation and is aimed at normal to dry skin. The skin on my face is slightly dry, but I can get spots if products clog my pores, so it's important for me to have something which moisturises adequately but isn't too heavy. The consistency of this moisturiser is more solid than I expected, it's the type of cream you can't really "scoop" as such, but instead just sweep your fingers across the top. This means that it lasts a good while because you're only using a tiny bit each time. I do find, however, that it feels just right on my face, being hydrating but not greasy or heavy. It sinks in really quickly, so I don't have to wait too long before being able to apply make up, and leaves my skin with a silky smooth finish. It doesn't really give off any noticeable smell which I don't mind because sometimes strong smells can annoy me in beauty products if they linger after use. The moisturising effects of this cream are really good. I have been using this one for a while, including over the winter months, and I notice my skin doesn't have any dry patches like it can sometimes as a result of the windy weather. This moisturiser is perfect for my needs, giving me great moisturising results without being overly heavy or causing spots, and I am reassured by the fact it contains Vitamin E that it is doing good things to my skin. I would never have thought that such a cheap moisturiser would give such good results, and only bought this at a time I was particularly skint one month, but to be honest I don't really notice the difference between this moisturiser and more expensive ones I've used, so for the time being I am happy to stick with this one.

INTRODUCTION A few years ago I found my face was getting itchy and dry after a shower, so I decided it was time to start using a decent facial moisturiser. After trying a few of the more expensive branded products out there I discovered Superdrug's Vitamin E range. Superdrug have three creams within their Vitamin E skin care range: day cream with SPF 15, day cream without SPF and a night cream. As I have fair, freckly skin I thought the version with added SPF would be my best choice. PACKAGING - PROS AND CONS The cream comes in a 100ml plastic tub with an easy-to-open screwtop lid. The entire Vitamin E range is colour coded, with the predominant colour being a biscuity beige. There is also a logo which makes the range easy to spot, a large 'E' within an orange teardrop on the lower part of the cover. The lid is not sealed so I would suggest selecting a tub from the middle or back of the display shelf in case someone has already opened and tried the front tub. Also be aware that the two day creams (versions with and without sun protection) come in almost-identical packaging. The only difference between the day creams is the words 'SPF 15' printed in a very small font. I made the mistake of purchasing the version without sun protection once, and had used it before I realised my mistake. As I'd opened it I couldn't return it. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Superdrug's Vitamin E SPF 15 moisturising day cream is designed for normal to dry skin. It provides sun protection factor 15 protection (a mid-range strength) and claims to contain vitamin E and natural antioxidants which defend the skin against environmental damage. It is designed to be effective for 12 hours after application. USER OPINION I don't like heavily-perfumed creams, so the very light fragrance in this product suits me well. The cream itself is white, very thick and spreads easily on the skin, leaving it feeling moisturised but not sticky. One 100ml tub lasts me around 6 months as only a small amount is needed at each application. RESULTS I was delighted with the almost-instant results I received. Firstly it eliminated the feeling of dryness I'd been dealing with. The product label claims the cream provides 12 hour moisturisation, but in winter I often re-apply the cream after about 8 hours due to the drying effect of central heating. The added SPF is what makes this product so good for me. I have very fair, freckly skin, so even in winter I need some sun protection, particularly as I get older. Unlike traditional sun creams this Superdrug product allows me to both moisturise and protect my face and neck in one application, minimising hassle and time-wasting. In winter I find my skin gets far less chapped than it used to, and in summer I use this day cream as a base coat under a more heavy-duty sun cream. I have found this reduces my risk of sunburn dramatically, even in tropical climates. CONCLUSION An excellent product that meets my needs. Ideal for those with sensitive, dry, fair skin. .
Superdrug Vitamin E SPF 15 Moisture Cream is a daily moisturizer which is part of Superdrug's own Vitamin E range which ranges from Cleanser to Body lotions all at affordable prices. Last winter I had finished my old moisturizer and wanted more of a thick cream rather than a thin lotion, therefore opted for this, a moisturizing day cream with SPF that claimed to give 12 hour moisture, suitable for normal to dry skin. This cream cost me £2.99, about average for a daily moisturiser and came with 125ml of product ( this has now been reduces to an airline safe 100ml). This pot is convenient to get hold of and the pot of this size will easily last you 9 months ( as mine has) if used daily. Superdrug claims that "Our naturally sourced Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which not only revitalises and protects the skin, it also helps combat the damaging effects of free radicals and shields it against the environment." The moisturiser comes in a transparent simple cylindrical pot with a cream/pink lid with a stick supplying you with the directions for use ingredients etc. This can be unhygienic as you are dipping your fingers in daily but if de-potted, or you ensure hand are clean before application, this should not be a problem. I definitely think that this moisturiser lives up to its claims and that this does protect the skin and makes it more dewy. Along with dewiness though does come grease. This moisturiser, when first applied, does leave the skin greasy/shiny but rest assured, this does sink in easily and quickly disappears and you are left with moisture smooth and glowing skin, without the excess oil. I also found when I started using this (months and months ago) that my skin started to look brighter and more radiant and I broke out less frequently. Overall I think that this isn't a product to be missed and anyone with Dry-Normal skin should own this. Thank you for reading.
I originally bought this product as I needed mosituriser and it was the cheapest one there. However I was strangely surprised...... The product was nice smelling, thick, sank into my skin easily and kept my skin moisturised all day long. It was also a nice base for my powder foundation. It also contains Vitamin E which is good for clearing up skin problems! I have combination skin and it seems to work well with that. However I don't know how it would work alongside greasy skin?? The pot itself I think is also within plane restrictions so you can take it in your hand luggage which is always a bonus! I usually buy something more expensive such as clinique however can honestly say now.. after a few weeks of using this product I haven't noticed the difference!! I definately recommend this as part of a consistent skin regime! Any questions please ask away :)
As you will already know from my previous review of the Superdrug Vitamin E eye cream I am a huge fan of this skincare range not just because it works so well but because it is incredibly cheap. Like the eye cream the Vitamin E facial moisturiser is fantastic, easy to use and also a bargain price tag. The moisturiser comes in a 125ml round clear tub with a screw top lid. This makes the cream very easy to get out of the tub and it seals perfectly after making sure none of the cream leaks out. The facial day moisturising cream is part of a growing range of vitamin E products from Superdrug and is currently priced at £2.99 per tub (or currently on offer at 2 products in the range for £3.99). Other products available in the range include: - Nourishing Night Cream - Skin Oil - Face Scrub - Illuminating Face Cream - Cleaner and Eye Make-up Remover - Eye Cream The moisturiser itself is said to revitalise and protect your skin as well as providing extra hydration and nourishment to keep your skin feeling soft, smooth and radiant. The cream is white in colour, has a non-greasy feel and absorbs easily into the skin. It also contains a SPF15 protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, which for the bargain price is an excellent feature as creams with a SPF contained are usually much more expensive. To use the cream it advises to use your fingertips to apply the cream in gentle upwards movements and to use daily. You only need a small amount of the cream and a tub can easily last a few months. It states that the cream lasts for 12 hours on the tub and I always find that I can go the whole day and still have beautifully soft skin right up until bedtime. In conclusion I think this cream is an excellent product and definitely worth a try if you are on a budget. I have been using this alongside the other Vitamin E skincare range for some time now and have never experienced any problems even though I do suffer from eczema and sensitive skin. I always find the cream absorbs easily and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
-Factual information- The product comes in a 125 ml tub and will cost around £2.44. It is dermatologically tested but apparently 'Superdrug are against animal testing' and the product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Directions for use: Using your fingertips, apply to your face and neck in gentle upward movements. For best results use daily. SPF 15 -How I came to buy this- As I've mentioned in previous Body Care reviews, I like to follow a cleanse, tone and moisturise regime. Partly because I'm acne prone but also to keep my face looking fresh and youthful. I used to use Garnier Stop Cream as my moisturiser, which I found to be very effective, sadly I had an accident with it in the bathroom one day. I dropped the tub and it went EVERYWHERE. So a trip to Superdrug ensued. I decided I might as well try something different, as I've always believed variety is the spice of life. I wanted to go for value for money rather than brand name, as I'm currently relying on small student funding as an income. I decided Superdrug's own brand would be a safe bet, and I picked this up. Priced at £2.44, I thought I couldn't really go wrong. I noticed it had a night cream counterpart, so, slightly impulsively, I bought that too, for the same price. -My opinion- Before I say anything else, I will say that I like the fact that it's got SPF 15. I think it's nice to use something that's meant to care specifically for your face in order to protect it from harmful sun rays. I've always found it reliable in that department. It's great to put on before applying make-up because any mistakes are much easier to rub off, and it gives powder eyeshadow a slightly creamier effect. Unfortunately I have no other nice comments to make about it. I haven't felt it tingle on my skin, I haven't felt like it was having any positive effect on my face at all. It just seemed to make my face look oily and greasy. I couldn't see any improvements in the texture or look of my face after using this. The night cream and the day cream are very similar to each other with the exception of maybe one ingredient. I'm not a body care expert so my opinion is just my own and someone else might find that they appreciate this cream a lot more than I do, but I think next time I will buy my Garnier Stop Cream again, despite the higher price tag. Until then I will keep using this because I don't like to waste things.
This is a 12 hour day cream which is also available as a 12 hour night cream. The moisturiser is part of the superdrug brand. The vitamin e range also includes all over body lotion, cleanser and exfoliater. At first I thought that this was maybe just another cheap moisturiser without any substance but when I saw it had spf and it was on offer I thought I'd try it. It has spf of 15 which is really important for me. Skin that is overexposed to sunlight causes pre-mature aging (wrinkles) which I want to avoid for as long as possible. I always look for day facial moisturisers with spf as during the day I tend to be out a lot and my face is exposed to free radicals in the form of UV (these cause skin damage). I always feel that sun protection is never really promoted in the UK very much and this is really dangerous. In the summer months it really is essential but even in the winter I wear spf moisturisers. This is only £2.99 for 125ml and I got it when it was on special offer of 2 for £3 which is basically buy one get one free. I was really surprised it was so cheap especially as it has spf and so I want really expecting much. I tend to experiment a lot with moisturisers because my skin is a bit of a pain as its sensitive and I easily get breakouts if its greasy, especially in the T zone. I am also prone to dry skin on my checks that show up. The moisturiser comes in a round tub with a twisty lid and there is no seal. Because there is no seal it means that anyone can have open the tub and touch the moisturiser and this makes it a little unhygienic. When I opened the tub I found that quite a lot of the moisturiser was stuck to the inside of the lid and even when I tap the top of the lid it just sticks to it. I'm not quite sure what it smells like. To me it smells like a mixture of coconut or coco. I always get coconut smells confused with coco smells but it smells more like coconut. The smell is very subtle and it fades away quite quickly. Because it is so cheap I thought it may smell a little like medicine but it feels and smells like a much more expensive moisturiser. I find that my skin stays moisturised (dry free) for about 8ish hours and so it lasts long enough for a working hours. It provides moisturisation for 12 hours according to superdrug but this varies with skin type and environment. I find one application is enough to keep my face moisturised for working hours and I use night cream after work. The moisturiser is easily absorbed. My skin feels much smoother and hydrated after application without causing outbreaks and my skin is matte. The moisturiser is a white cream which I find becomes more viscous (runny) in the hot weather. At the moment in the hot weather it isn't very thick but it isn't liquid either. The vitamin e in the moisturiser helps to combat free radicals and harsh environment conditions. This is something that I really need and look for in a moisturiser. The moisturiser is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and is dermatologicaly tested. The bottle is transparent so you can see how much is left. For me the 125 ml lasts at least 6 months which I think is a long time. Because of the relatively low spf and I tend to use this moisturiser in the winter as opposed to the summer. In the summer I find that it's too heavy and can make my skin greasy. I will continue to use this as a facial moisturiser for the winter months. This is an inexpensive moisturiser but has all the qualities of a expensive premium branded product. Recommended
This cream is by far the best value for money you will get for just £2.49! I was so shocked with the price when i saw how big the tub was and just how long it lasts. I have had mine for 6 months now and its still going, still smells brand new and still smooth. The packaging of this tub is simple but effective, and really drew me in as i thought it looked very relaxing. In addition, the packaging is very durable which is always a benefit. The cream itself is rather thick, but unlike most expensive creams is not greasy in any way, it settles on your skin lovely giving a nice glow but not a greasy shine. Your skin really soaks up the goodness of this cream and it gives an all day smoothness to your skin, making it a fantastic basis for make up. I personally go from dry to oily skin throughout the seasons and found this is just as effective in the hot summer to the cold winter where my skin is awfully dry. Even applying once every few days gives an amazing feel and smell to my skin which is really a benefit for someone who doesnt always have time to apply this sort of product. The smell of this cream is gorgeous coconut-y smell and really lasts all day even with make up underneath. You only need to apply in small amounts with this cream which is outstanding value for its price! My mom also found it helped her wrinkles which is amazing! I barely get any to myself now. I would really recommend this for all age groups with different types of skin. I have personally used more expensive brands such as nivea but would definetly pick this one first. Don't think i will ever change back!
Having combination skin that changes from day to day - hour to hour it can be tricky to find a descent moisturiser that can stand up to it all. I had previously used the highlighting Vitamin E moisturiser by Superdrug so on a recent shopping trip to Superdrug I discovered the Moisturing Cream. It cost £2.49 for a 125ml pot which seemed very good value. The packaging is basic and it states that not only revitalises and protects the skin but it will also help to combat the damaging effects of free radicals. It is not tested on animals and is suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans. The cream is white in colour and seems to have a thick consistancy in the pot. The fragrance is gentle and has a slight hint of coconut about it. Once applied the the face and neck it does not feel thick but silky and smooth. It does leave a slight tacky feeling for a minute or two after but this does disappear very quickly. It does not leave you shiny and makes your skin glow with natural radiance. I also use it on my hands and feet when they feel dry and it soon brings the softness back. It is a great base of your foundation and when mixed with your foundation for a tinted moisturiser this works really well too. It moisturisers right throughout the day and contains SPF 15 to combat harmful UVA and UVB rays. So if you are looking for a cheaper moisturiser that offers great results then this Superdrug Vitamin E Moisturising Cream will not disappoint.
I have dabbled in expensive creams in the past and was shocked when a friend let me use some of her superdrug's own vitamin E cream. Having normal to sometimes dry skin, a lot of products are caked with complicated chemicals which over do it with my skin and also can be quite greasy or leave a 'film' on my skin, or make it shiny after I use it which ruins my make up. However, this product feels really refreshing and cool, even in room temperature. There is a light clean smell which doesnt over fragrance the product and makes the experience more pleasant. It is thin but moisturising enough and is refreshing enough for it to feel relief when it goes on my tight morning skin! It never leaves any residue or grease and entirely absorbs into my skin. Sometimes my face goes a bit red when i put it on probably because I am moisturising it, it is not an irritable product as I have quite sensitive skin! It has no effect on my make up thought you could probably blend it with foundation if you wanted a thinner one. The packaging isnt particularly amazing as it is a superdrug's own product. It is a simple plastic translucent pot which goes in at the bottom in the centre. The lid is a creamy pink and is opaque. There is some dark red text on the plastic pot. The product seems to last for ages as you don't need loads of it and one pot usually lasts me 3 months using it day & night! The best part about it is the price at £2.44 for 125 ml. It is a extremely good product at a great price, don't buy into fancy packaging!
I have quite sensitive skin which has often been a problem when looking for an appropriate face cream. I'd tried plenty when one day, on a whim I picked up this product and took it home, expecting to have irritated skin all day long. However I not only found my skin to be soft to the touch, it didn't leave a greasy residue nor did it irritate the sensitive skin on my legs. I fell in love and I haven't bothered to try anything else since. Also the added value of 12 hour spf 15 attracted me in the first place as I have very pale skin and even in bleak sunlight I can burn, so it's a piece of mind and can help prevent ageing of the skin. I'd like to point out that this product is not an SPF cream and it is advised that in actual sunlight we all wear factor 30 or above - who wants sun damaged skin. I was so impressed with this product that I now also regularly use their nourishing night cream which again doesn't leave my skin greasy nor clog up my pores and I use their daytime moisturising lotion.
