Superdrug Vitamin E: Moisture Boost Facial Serum

Okay guys so when I initially purchased this product I was in high hopes that it would work. I read really good reviews on the Superdrug website and that they pride themselves for being ethically sound; by this I mean, they going out of their way not to put ingredients in a product that can potentially harm you as a consumer.

Oh boy was I wrong!

I would usually talk about the ingredients but I don’t think it’s worth mentioning as this serum is JUST a serum that comes with no benefits.

Let me break it down for you in my unique way!

What I liked about the product:

Okay I’ve thought about it and here it is; I like the fact that this product comes in the form of a pump that makes it easy to dispense the product onto my hand and apply evenly. You can also get value for your money in a sense as it lasts for a maximum of 3 months if you are only applying it once daily.

I also like the fact it has a white thick consistency and how it absorbs really well into my skin without it feeling like I’ve got a thick layer of product on.

While using this product as part of my night time routine I found that it promoted hydration as my skin felt hydrated and soft the next day.

Key Ingredients:

  • Castor oil: promotes hydration and aids nourishment that leaves skin feeling soft; hence why my face feels like a baby’s bottom when I wake up in the morning.
  • Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract: ideal for eczema hence why it is hydrating
  • Retinyl Palmitate: is a mild form of a combination of Vitamin A, and retinol that acts as an antioxidant.
  • Vitamin E: is amazing as it promotes hydration in the skin, it is great for improving skin texture – I’ve found while using this product my skin felt smoother however, in regards to my skin tone there were no changes identified.

What I disliked about it:

I found the scent in the product to be really overwhelming it kind of reminded me of Johnson baby lotion – when I did check the ingredient list all what was mentioned was ‘parfum’ which can mean anything technically speaking as most cosmetic companies tend to use ‘parfum’ to actually avoid writing down the actual ingredient that was used. Apart from the smell there was nothing else that I hated about this product.

Guys also take note that is product has ‘Polyortbate -20’ in it that has been linked to allergies so if you are that type of person who suffers from skin irritation and has an allergy I would not advise you to take this product but I would advise you to seek advice before purchasing this product.

Would I buy this product again?

Meh not really as the disadvantages outweighs the benefits so I would call it a miss and not worth my pretty pennies.

Where can I purchase this product:

Superdrug £ 3.99
