Hey everyone, my post today features my favourite day moisturiser, the one that I have been using since it was announced ‘best steal’ day moisturiser in the 21st Beauty Bible in 2006.
Now I’m not overly loyal when it comes to products, and do believe in switching products, but here is one that Ive yet to deviate from.
Some of the numerous reasons it was voted best moisturiser is because it is full of antioxidants, some of which are only found in quite high end moisturisers. Boots claim that it ‘boosts skin radiance’ which I have found to be true. The best thing about this moisturiser is that it does keep skin exfoliated and radiant probably due to its ingredient retinyl, a form of vitamin A.
It is SPF 15, it was SPF 8 in its original formula, which in my view was a downside however they seemed to have increased the SPF over the years. The cream itself is not too thick and not too runny. Its a good consistency and sinks in quite quickly on my skin. It has a nice fragrance which reminds me of sweets. Its a fruity/sweet kind of smell almost sherbet.
Despite the cream being an oldie, it is still written about which shows its continuing popularity. The Daily mail newspaper listed it under its article on best affordable skincare, it came in best for sun protection. The sun newspaper also gave it a mention in its article on the 5 ingredients that will change your skin forever.
Its usual price is around £11, and I tend to stock up on this when Boots have a 3 for 2 offer on or when its discounted. As I use the eye cream as well, it works out better to do this.
All in all it is very easy to continue using this moisturiser as it contains the main things required in any good anti-aging cream. A good level of SPF and antioxidants. Its also very affordable which makes repeat purchasing easy. Especially when you go through as many jars as I do!
