Superdrug Gentle Moisturising Cream | Review

Hey everyone,

In my skincare haul, I mentioned that I'd pick up some new skincare bits and bobs from Superdrug for ridiculously cheap prices.

I've been using this moisturiser on and off for the past month.

It claims to be for all skin and keep your skin moisturised for 24hours.
It contains Vitamin E and Glycerin which is supposed to hydrate the skin and restore it's natural moisture.
It also supposed to be non-greasy and make your skin soft and silky. Can be used on your body as well!

I've been using it for a month now but not daily as I felt as an oily skinned person that this moisturiser was a bit too oily for me.
I used it before my make up once but didn't like the way my make up looked so I've refrained from using it during my morning skincare routine.
I only include it in my morning routine when I'm not wearing any make up that day.

As for the night, I used it on and off because I felt like it was breaking me out. I used it for the first week and my skin seemed to be struggling to get used to it.
I also noticed that when I'd wake up the next morning, my face would be oily.

As you may be able to tell from the picture above, the moisturiser is quite thick so using it lightly was a must after seeing my face break out and look porous.

I stopped using it for a few days and my skin seemed to go back to normal.
When I did start using it again, I only used it lightly and in combination with my Effaclar Duo[+] and my face was fine.

I am a bit apprehensive to use it daily by itself because I hate breaking out as my skin takes forever to heal up and it's just very irritating.

I like the packaging, just your stand moisturiser packaging. Superdrug do well in producing good packaging for their own brand which I quite like.

I'd say the price and the packaging are the best bits about this moisturiser. At 38p, I can't really complain, it just would've been nice to have a cheap moisturiser that worked.
The fact that it makes me break out has put me off repurchasing and I highly doubt I will.

If you have dry/normal skin, it may work for you however if you have oily/combination skin, it may affect you the same way it did me but you may be lucky!

Have any of you tried it, what were thoughts on it?
Did you only buy it because it was 38p haha I'd love to know!
