Boots Vitamin e Moisture Lotion

After being beyond with impressed with Boots Vitamin E toner, I couldn't wait to try the moisture face lotion from the same range. As nothing is easy with my small boots, I had to wait until last week till it came finally back in stock and that I could put my hands on it.


This is what they have to say about this £2.85 moisturiser:

Boots Vitamin E moisture lotion SPF15 contains naturally derived Wheatgerm Oil conditions, moisturises and nourishes the skin. Boots Vitamin E Moisture Lotion moisturises all day long to keep skin smooth, soft and radiant. The added benefit of SPF 15 protects against UVA and UVB rays

I couldn't believe how much product I could get for the price. Sadly this is when the fairy tale ended. I am not sure if I got my hands on a duff tube or what but this moisturiser actually never dried on my face and remained tacky to the touch… for ever!


With its widely recognised anti ageing ingredient Vitamin E and spf factor, I was hoping this would have my go to moisturiser but sadly I can't use it. I managed to keep the moisturiser on my face the two times I tried it but hadn't I put a drying foundation on top (I have tons of those unfortunately at home) I don't think I would have made it through the day without removing it. The fragrance was absolutely spot on, the price, the packaging equally spot on, but I just cannot make it work for me.

What: Boots Moisture Lotion with Vitamin e
Where: Boots.
How much: £2.85

How odd, I have used this for several years and find it absorbs fine. I hope they haven't changed the formula!!! :/
