Superdrug Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream Review


Moisturising? Tick. Hydrating? Tick. Suitable for sensitive skin? Tick. Absorbs fast? Tick. And lastly affordable? Tick!

These are the main criteria I look for when picking a face cream and this cream from the Vitamin E range from Superdrug meets them all. The cream itself only costs £2.99 but it's often on offer with the other products in the range.


It's suitable for normal to dry skin and it claims to have a rich complex of many vitamins to leave skin looking soft, smooth and radiant. First of all, the formula is generally in line with other night creams, whilst it's not watery it's also not as thick as some day creams. I find that it really works for me as I can feel it absorbing into my skin instead of just sitting on the surface.

A lot of creams for dry skin tend to be very thick and I found that they didn't help my skin in the long term. Especially when they have SPF added I find them too thick that they can actually clog up my skin (I prefer to add my own SPF beforehand but that's a whole other issue). This is why I've started to use this cream as my day cream aswell (strange I know!) as I find that it's the only one so far that helps with my dehydrated skin. I even gave Eucerin a go, at £11, and my skin still felt dry afterwards.


The cream itself feels quite luxurious to apply, it massages in quite nicely and makes my skin feel a bit more plump. It instantly soothes the skin and my skin can be a little bit sensitive and it just helps to calm some of the redness down.

The main issue with my skin is that it's dehydrated so I'm drinking a lot more water to help but I have noticed a great decrease in dry flaky skin around my jaw since I've started using this. One of these tubs lasts me atleast 3-4 months and the fact that I've already been through 3 of these shows just how much I like it!


I would even say the night cream is quite similar to Simple's night cream (which I used before but it was a little less moisturising),  as the skincare ranges focus on simple products without all the added complexity.

Overall, it's a cream that I'll carry on repurchasing and I can't wait to give other products in the range a go (the naturally radiant range has a few gems too, like the hot cloth cleanser).

I hope you enjoyed this post!
Have you tried any products from this range?

  1. I keep hearing about this brand - at those prices I'll definitely be grabbing a few bits :) I have combination skin but overnight and as treatments I like to use something really hydrating xx

    1. It's surprising how affordable it is for the quality! I'm the same, I think that overnight products can have such a big effect on your skin :)
