Bloggers Christmas Beauty Brawl; Day One

by - Thursday, December 01, 2016

Good Morning!
I hope you are having a lovely week!

So it is day one of the Bloggers Christmas Beauty Brawl! If you want to get involved in updates, chats etc you can use the hashtag #Beautybrawl16 on twitter and instagram, where we will all be sharing our daily posts for the next ten days! I'm so excited to take part in the beauty brawl as I have never done anything like this before and it will be something rather different for my blog! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Superdrug are absolutely wonderful and kindly sent me a bunch of products and this beautiful coconut scented day cream was included in the fabulous package! This is their Optimum Birch Water Day Cream which you can currently pick up for £7.45 instead of £14.99! Grab it whilst you can! 
"The Superdrug Optimum PhytoHydrate range consists of specially forumlated products that immediately comfort and replenish the skin's moisture levels, helping to improve the signs of ageing caused by dehydration. This contains moisture-intensive Nordic Birch Water sustainably tapped from Silver Birch Trees. Birch Water is recognised as a pure, potenti, anti-ageing ingredient by Nordic women. It helps to cushion skin with refreshing moisture whilst providing intense nourishment for a comforted, supple and radiant complexion."
Why I Like It;
I absolutely love this day cream because 1. It smells like Malibu, you know, the alcohol. It's incredible. If you're not a fan of the coconut scent, you definitely will not like this (I know my mum doesn't). 2. This day cream isn't oily. I have combination to dry skin and I usually have a slightly oily t-zone, but this doesn't affect my t-zone at all. I've found by the end of the day my skin still looks great and I've found I do not have really shiny skin either. (Some moisturisers make your skin look so shiny, asif it's wet). Lastly, this day cream makes my skin feel incredible! It's a very creamy consistency but it isn't a heavy cream, so you can hardly feel it on your skin! It's fantastic. For a day cream which is currently half price, you just can't really go wrong with it.

How I Use It;
Simply wash your skin in the morning to ensure there isn't any dirt or left over makeup from the previous day in your pores. Pat your skin dry with a towel and then pump one squirt of the day cream into your finger tips and massage into your face and down your neck too. It's as simple as that!

The Results;
I've found whenever I have used this product, my face has a lot more of a "glow" too it and is more radiant. than if I didnt use it. My skin feels so much fresher, this is probably because of the birh water and shea butter which is included in it. Usually if I leave my face unmoisturised my skin feels very dry and tight by the end of the day. However, when I have used this beautifully scented moisturiser, my skin hasn't felt dry by the end of the day.
Any Cons;
As of yet I haven't found any negative aspects about this product. It's light on my skin, it's not oily and it smells incredible. My skin hasn't broken out either which I am so grateful for too!

Final Thoughts;
For £7.45 I cannot complain about this product. Even if it was it's full price I'd still buy it! I pay £13.50 for my No7 day cream and I'd say this is just as incredible but it smells better! I'm impressed with how radiant my skin is once I have used this and how my skin doesn't feel dry by the end of the day (which it usually would). I'm so impressed with this, especially as it's Superdrug's own brand.
