So, I know I’ve been missing in
action the last week, life outside of blogging has seriously taken over at the
moment. I expect it will be like this for the weeks running up until Christmas,
so yeah, my posts when they come will be extra special as I’ve managed to work
them into my rather hectic schedule!
Before I start on today’s post I would just like to say congratulations to Catherine for becoming the winner of my Body Shop Fragrance Giveaway! Thank you all for entering, I appreciated it very much.
Today I’m going to do a
review of the No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for normal/oily skin. I have
been using this moisturiser since July, so I feel I can give an honest review
on the product.
excuse the slightly battered packaging for this, it has been used every day so
yeah, general wear and tear. This moisturiser is aimed at those with
normal/oily skin which is where my skin type falls; it aims to hydrate the skin
and control oily breakouts throughout the day.
factor which initially pulled me to purchasing this back in July was the added
factor of SPF 15, along with a 5 star UVA rating. I always forget to use sun
cream etc and I know we should all protect our skin as much as possible so
having this already in my moisturiser was a huge plus for me.
to say I really do like the packaging for the No7 range, I’m aware that it had
a revamp over the summer which I think was a pretty good move by No7. My only
gripe with this particular type of packaging is that it is in a tub rather than
a ‘pump’ bottle which I don’t like as in its current format it is much less
the product itself and I can honestly say I cannot fault it in terms of what it
has done for my skin. I’ve read bad and negative views on this product which
makes me sometimes doubt my own experience but then again, I have to remember
that everybody’s skin is different; what works for some may not work for
that once applied this moisturiser gives me plenty of hydration for throughout
the day whilst controlling oily breakouts. It is a nice creamy consistency
which isn’t too thick, it applies lovely and it mattifies well leaving my skin
ready for makeup. I believe that this product has worked very well for me as I
don’t appear to be suffering so much in terms of an oily t-zone on a whole
anymore, which is great news!
product costs £12.50 from Boots, which I feel is rather good as it has lasted
me a while, I still have a bit left now nearly five months on.
moment no however that is not because it isn’t a good product as I have enjoyed
using this very much. I know that I would re-buy this again yet my reason for holding off for now is that being
the beauty blogger that I am I wish to find and try other brands; I really enjoy trying
an afterthought, I also have the Night Cream in the same range and I think it
is just as good, my skin is super, super soft in the morning when I wake up!
anybody else tried this moisturiser? If so, let me know what you thought.
