Superdrug Vitamin E Radiance Cream


I love to come across a good product from the high street that is a proper bargain and this stuff certainly fits the bill! I first  saw this on a blog a few months ago- apologies as I cannot for the life of me remember whose blog it was! and seeing as it was only £2.99 I had to try it out. I have heard loads of good things of a variety of the Vitamin E products in the Superdrugs own range, but what sold this to me is the idea of it being a pretty good dupe for Mac's Strobe cream. Now I dont have a bottle of strobe in use at the moment so apologies for the lack of comparison swatches but as you can see from Superdrugs version it is pretty stunning! 


First off I am a big fan of the fact this comes in an easy to carry (and travel with) 50ml tube, hygienic, practical and fresh looking makes it a winner on the packaging front. I love that with the tube you can be in control of how much you are getting out, and the click close lid is properly sturdy so there should be no mishaps in your make up bags.

When blended in it gives a gorgeous golden shimmer glow- without gathering in my crater pores, as you can see from the snap it does have a really golden shine which you can mix down with some moisturiser like I do for day time, or wear on its own under your base for a night time look. I have been using it for a while now and am really happy with the finish, It absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn't feel overly greasy whilst still giving that golden glow I like. I think this is going to be great for summer time as you could easily wear this alone on tanned skin to get that healthy look, and it would also look fab on the collar bones, or up the front of bare legs to make them look longer. Right now for winter is definitely doing to job of perking up my dull looking skin, those light reflecting particles are amazing.


I am in love with it because it also has SPF 15 in it, which is something I like to look for. I haven't experienced any flash back while wearing it for photos which is a must know for beauty bloggers :) Overall I am thrilled with this little find, a totally inexpensive but versatile product that performs well.

I really want to try the Vitamin E face oil next, I have heard some excellent things about it! I noticed on Superdrugs Website today that it is 2 for £3.99 on the Vitamin E range so now might be the time to try it out.
