Review: Superdrug Vitamin E SPF 15 Moisture Radiance Cream

Hi Girls! I don't know about you but my skin is a nightmare around this time of year. I suffer with dry patches and the occasional spot rearing its ugly head, so I tend to switch up my skin care routine to prevent it happening. You may remember when I featured this little beauty in a mini haul (read it here) a month or so ago, and I used it for a few days before putting it back into a box and pretty much forgot about it. But last week while sorting through all my products I found it again and I'm so glad I did! At £2.99 for 50ml of product it's a real bargain and really does what it says on the tin. What Superdrug claim:

"Contains light reflecting pigments to give an instant healthy glow to the skin, whilst providing 12 hour moisturisation and helping to protect your skin against the sun's UVA and UVB rays. Enriched with naturally sourced Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that will help to shield your skin against environmental damage and premature skin ageing by combating the harmful effects of free radicals"

It all sounds a bit scientific to me! But after using this for some time now I absolutely love it. Just like Rimmels Wake Me Up foundation, it contains tiny speckles of light reflecting particles so it gives the skin a gorgeous glow, and not so much you look like a discoball in sunlight. I'm usually partial to a matte finish on my face, but this adds definition to areas I need it most like my browbone and the tops of my cheeks. I'm a bit fussy with moisturisers as I have to make sure that I have a product that contains a minimum SPF 15 so I don't get crows feet before I'm 30. Highly doubtful but I'm not taking any chances! It claims to moisturise for 12 hours and I can really feel it hydrating my skin throughout the day, although before I apply my make-up it does feel a little bit stick and thick on the skin. I reviewed the Hot Cloth Cleanser from the same brand of products and mentioned that it smelt amazing, and this is no exception. It smells so fresh and it's definitely one of those products that I look forward to using each morning.
One thing I've definitely noticed since using the Superdrug Vitamin E range is that my skin doesn't look as dull in the mornings as it used to. I don't know whether it's down to the ingredients but whatever it is, it's working wonders. I also love that it's so compact and something you can just pop into your handbag when you're on the move.


  1. I have heard great things about this line's hot cloth cleanser, never knew there was also a moisturizer! Great review, will need to check it out. Just started following your lovely blog! xx


  2. I've been wanting to try this out for ages, and the hot cloth cleanser from the same line too! :) I'm a new follower hun, your blog is lovely! :)


  3. Ooh I've always sworn by the Body Shop Vitamin E Moisturiser, but it's £10 for 50ml, definitely gonna pick a Superdrug one up when I'm next in!
