Today I thought I’d share my thoughts on some skincare I was recently sent to review.
Essential Vie Hydrating Moisturiser
🍓Highlighted ingredients were organic Argan Oil and Vitamin E.
🍓Suitable for sensitive skin (very important for me)
🍓Not tested on animals.
🍓Free from parabens and sulphates.
🍓Made in the UK
This is a medium thick daily moisturiser, lightly scented from ingredients not added perfumes. It absorbs quickly and leaves the lightest of residues on the skin during absorption.
I did struggle with the pump at first as it seemed to get clogged and stop working, only allowing tiny amounts out. But I persevered as it seemed like a cream my notoriously stroppy skin could get on with.
I avoided areas where my eczema has flared as that really needs something a bit more ferocious and steroid-y (prescription time!)
I had no bad reactions to this and overall it’s similar I think to Superdrug’s Vitamin E cream in texture and consistency.
You can get this from Boots priced at £9.99 for 100ml.
Essential Vie Anti Stretch Mark Oil
🍓Highlighted ingredients are organic Argan Oil and Vitamin E.
🍓A blend of essential oils designed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
The only fragrance is from the oils, this is easy to use and suitable for the whole body.
I used it on some rather angry looking marks on my arm from blood tests that have always bothered me. It seemed to lighten the skin a bit, and certainly added some moisture and improved the overall appearance of my skin.
I had no negative reaction and found this nicer to use than Bio Oil which I find slightly unpleasant to smell or feel. This didn’t leave my skin greasy or my hand after application.
You can pick this up in Boots priced at £11.99 for 100ml.
