Review: Palmers Cocoa Butter Moisture Rich Night Cream

1

I use this night cream almost every night and it is my one of my favourite night products. The cream is so light and not heavy on the face, it feels like I am not wearing any moisturiser at all. It is very suitable for me as this night cream doesn’t feel oily and it absorbs in the skin very quickly.  I really like the cocoa smell, it is really pleasant and not too strong and overpowering. This product definitely helps with dry skin. I would recommend this night cream if you want to prevent further skin dryness overnight.

Review: REDWIN Sorbolene Moisturiser with Vitamin E

I have used Redwin Sensitive Skin Sorbolene Moisturiser for a while now and I think this product is moisturising. It does have a waxy feeling at first and leaves white streaks which eventually disappears as it absorbs into the skin. It has a waxy, dull smell though because it does not have fragrance but it is normal because its for people with sensitive skin. Nevertheless, this is a good and cheap product that does its job as a moisturiser.
