I purchased the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Night Cream and Serum whilst killing time in Covent Garden waiting for my Osteo. My best friend Ling had been raving about the Serum and it was on promotion with the night cream. I love an offer and had to have both.

I’ve been using both products for a couple of months and here’s my thoughts:

Vitamin E Night Cream £11

It does what it says on the tin -it’s rich, very moisturising, non greasy and my skin feels smoother and softer. I’d say this is very good for dry and dehydrated skin. What puts me off is that it has a really thick consistency and feels heavy on the skin. I don’t like caking my skin in a thick moisturiser at night. The cream is highly fragranced – it reminds me of Johnson’s Baby Lotion. I suspect a fair few chemicals were used to achieve the pink colour and fragrance and this turns me off completely. MISS!

Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil £12

Impressed. I’ve applied it on its own and also added a few drops to my moisturiser and found it worked both ways. Great for dry skin as it helps to soften hard skin, also good for hands and elbows. Really light formula which the skin soaks up like a sponge. Face appears brighter and skin is softer the next day. Not sticky, greasy and no cheap scent. What I really like is that this is a serum and an oil all in one which speeds up my night skincare routine (a little!) .Thumbs up! HIT!

Winter Essentials – Clarins HydraQuench Collection

Clarins Hydraquench Collection | Sam Loves

Clarins Hydraquench CollectionThis is billed as a ‘moisture must-have’ and I couldn’t agree more. If you have normal to dry skin, this may well be worth a look as I have seen a visible improvement in the condition of my skin since using this trio. I periodically suffer with dry patches around my chin area and two to three days after using this they simply disappear. 

I use the HydraQuench cream and serum at night and apply the face mask once a week. The cream is thick, rich and emollient but it isn’t oily and absorbs quickly. It has a very pleasant scent that reminds me of sun cream and it doesn’t irritate my skin. The serum is light and has a watery consistency.  They all contain Hyaluronic Acid which holds one thousand times its weight in water and enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture and therefore skin appears plumper and smoother.

This is my current favourite SOS treatment for dry and dehydrated skin as it leaves my skin feeling nothing short of amazing. This is my second repurchase and is a staple in my winter skincare regime.

It’s currently on offer  -normally £34.00 now £23.80 at Clarins.
