Ridiculously brilliant skin oil for £2.99

Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Oil
I should probably start this post by mentioning that I’m not affiliated with Superdrug in any way cos I’m gonna rave about this face oil so much there’s a good chance you’ll think I own shares in the company :)

This was one of those spur of the moment purchases that I made a couple of months back, having just read an article on the wonders of Vitamin E. I already loved the cream cleanser from this range and figured that whilst the oil was on sale I may as well give it a try. The packaging is simple and fuss-free and the plastic bottle has a teensy tiny hole in the top to dispense the oil. I applied a very thin layer before bed on the night I bought this and when I woke up the next day my skin was smoother, softer and brighter than it had been in months

I know this might seem odd but it didn’t actually occur to me that this change might be because of the face oil. I’ve bought so many products that have promised so much but delivered so little that when I tried something that gave results straight away I didn’t believe it! I figured it’d take weeks for the oil to effect my skin in any real way so I just enjoyed my good skin day and used the oil on nights when my skin was particularly dry and tight (stupid heating/cold weather plays havoc with my skin n hair!)
After a while (about 6 weeks!) I noticed a trend; I’d apply the oil before I went to bed and the next day my skin would look a million times better. I catch on fast :)

Anywho, I’ve taken up swimming again and was at the pool 4 times last week. The chlorine always dries out my skin a little but when you combine that with central heating and the cold weather when I’m walking my dogs and the results aren’t pretty; I ended up with little dry patches on my cheeks and chin. Now these were proper dry patches that actually flaked off like dandruff. Revolting but true. So I resorted to my good old face oil and within 2 days my skin was moisturised and flake free

I honestly can’t recommend this product enough because it’s left me with brighter, softer, smoother, more refined skin and smaller pores. It’s also helped fade the pale acne scars around my chin and jaw line.

Summary

Size : 30ml
Cost : £2.99
Tip : Less is more. I use a couple of drops of this over my whole face
Scent : Smells like a summer holiday… it has that lovely cocoa butter and coconut smell that I always associate with sun cream

I was looking for an oil to help with scarring from spots and that helped with moisturising today, but the assistants in boots just told me to use more scrubs! Glad to know there is something that's exactly what I was looking for, will definitely be trying this xxx

Helen said...

I must try this out! Love to try new products. I do suffer from spot breakouts sometimes. Do you think this oil will make it worse? Lovely blog xxx

Thanks for all your comments!

Helen I suffer from dreadful acne (I'm currently using Duac and Dianette - my doc started prescribing them about a year ago) and this hasn't made my skin breakout. I know there's no guarantees when it comes to skin care so if you try it I really hope it works for you :)

Romanian Princess and Blair Villanueva I'm always on the lookout for awesome new blogs so will be popping over for a nosey!

Beauty World thank you so much!! I really really appreciate and will enjoy passing it on too ♥
