Hey people! We are in the final month of my BP 2 month skincare challenge and I am starting to roll out the updates and reviews! I wanted to test products out for the full month before reviewing them, this way I have a better understanding of them. I haven’t reviewed any serums yet because I want to use them for at least 5 weeks. So far, I have reviews up on Japan Fusion Pure Transforming Cleanser and the Hydra Prep Lotion. I also have a review on the Invisible SPF 25- coming soon. I have picked up some new products and I have my updated BP routine here.
Today’s post will be a full review on the Super Healthy Skin Daily Moisture Lotion which I have been using as my AM moisturiser and occasionally as a PM night cream when I skip the retinol moisturiser. The lotion promises to brighten, soften and smooth the skin whilst providing an energy boost. It is also fragrance-free. The key ingredients of the lotion are shea butter, antioxidant plant extracts, peptides among others.
I have been using this cream as an AM every day and occasionally as a PM night cream when I skip the retinol moisturiser. For AM use, I add a few drops of my resveratrol and ferulic acid serum from The Ordinary for antioxidant protection( I have been doing this since last spring with all my AM moisturisers) but I have also used it a few times without the drops to test how it performs, there is not a huge difference. The additional drops give it more of a luminous finish which is expected as the ferulic acid feels and looks like oil even though it’s oil free. The drops don’t add any moisture or hydration so doesn’t impact the claims of the moisturiser.
Beauty Pie describes this as a lotion but I think the consistency and texture are more of a cream. I think of lotions as fluid and light and whilst the Super Healthy Skin Daily Moisture Lotion feels light on the skin, the texture is definitely creamy and thick. It feels luxurious on and sinks into the skin without an oily residue. It doesn’t leave the skin tacky, it doesn’t clog pores or emphasise texture.
This cream sits as the ‘meat’ in a sandwich of products yet I have experienced no piling with it. Underneath it, I have my toner, essence and serum, and on top of it, I have a generous helping of SPF. It is softening and I really like how it feels on the skin.
My skin feels soft, comfortable and moisturised all day with the Super Healthy Skin Daily Moisture Lotion. Occasionally I would layer my YourGoodSkin SPF 30 on top of this during the day for an SPF topup and it is then I would feel like my face feels heavy with product and when it starts to pil. I think this is understandable because by then, my natural oils have peaked through (I don’t wear makeup during the week), I have on my morning skincare PLUS an additional generous helping of SPF.
A well-formulated moisturiser that provides all-day moisture and comfort to the skin. It’s luxurious, softening and goes onto the skin well. I really like this cream and will recommend it. I personally like it better with my additional drops of ferulic acid for that luminous finish and antioxidant boost but the lotion also has antioxidants in it and its perfectly fine to use alone. This comes in a 50ml tube. I have normal to oily combo skin and I find the moisturiser worked well with it.
If you pick this up, make sure you use an SPF on top of it for sun protection. I have a small amount left which I reckon will last me a week and a half. Depending on how much you use, the cream will last you about 5-6 weeks( I admit I am heavy handed with my products) I have repurchased this but I won’t be using it right after this one because I have an ‘old’ unopened moisturiser I really want to get rid of before the spring.
I hope this helps! I have really enjoyed this challenge (I do miss rotating my products though) and falling in love with some new products. Be sure to check out the other reviews I have on BP products and my updated BP routine.
Super Healthy Skin Daily Moisture Lotion is £6.34 for members or £35 full retail price. Whilst I think it is an excellent moisturiser, I think the price point is high (this is something I will address more in my final brand review of BP). I think it should be in the £20-25 range.
Catch you later
