We all grew up knowing that Vitamin E was good for you, be it in a face cream, body lotion or healthy snack. It’s one of those core ingredients that helps to protect and pamper for healthy skin, inside and outside. Jo Malone have their very own Vitamin E skincare range and have just launched a Daily Moisturising Creme to join the rest of the great products. Not only does the formula contain rosemary leaf and grape seed extract, but it also had broad-spectrum UVB and UVA (SPF15) protection to help shield skin from harmful sun rays. The surprisingly light and moisturising formula has a delicate scent which isn’t overpowering, nor does it aggravate sensitive skin that you’ve rubbed red raw with tissues for three days straight. (Tested on a cold-ridden nose and it still works!) You can work it in without getting any of those moisturiser flakes that can sometime drive you round the bend.
It contains barley extract and wheat germ to strengthen the skin’s barrier and reduce water loss, meaning your skin will be smooth, supple and moisturised from within. It really does soothe and comfort skin well, leaving your complexion radiant and plump. It doesn’t take ages to sink in either, so you’re safe in the knowledge you can use it as part of a wider routine and not have to wait an hour for it to do its job. As you’d expect from Jo Malone, the ingredients are fabulous, the scent subtle and the package elegant. This doesn’t come cheap at £50 for a pot, but you most definitely get what you pay for – it’s not just a face cream, but an experience. Yeah you can pick up a cream for a fiver and it’ll help, but this is in a league of its own. An expensive league at that.
Available now at all Jo Malone retailers.
