LIDL Suhada Nature Rice Bamboo Night Cream – a review

Everyone that reads this blog knows that I absolutely swear by the Iseree day and night cream. It’s all natural that when LIDL had a new “brand” of cosmetics to offer, I felt compelled to try it. It comes in a tube rather than a pot and the screw-on top is imitation wood. A nice presentation touch that makes it appear a bit more upmarket compared to its Iseree cousin if you ask me. The cream in itself is quite thick and smells lovely to me. However, I would presume that said smell might put some people off (starting with my other half). I know I am prone to feel quite dry in the mornings due to our central heating kicking off ½ hour before we get up so I usually pile my night cream on. The usual Iseree one gets absorbed quite quickly. This one needs a good rub though but as previously mentioned and in its defence, the Suhada cream is actually thicker than Iseree’s. My skin still feel moisturised in the mornings. My only reservation is possibly that it may not be suitable for people with oily skin or serial clogging pores: I wake up with a bit of an oily film on my skin. Nothing seriously as unpleasant as how your skin feels in the morning before you wash it. The retail price in my local LIDL is £4. It’s definitely worth trying for that price.

Boots No7 Time Resisting Moisturising Day Cream with SPF15 – a review

I know this product is not what I would usually consider “cheap” but I was caught out behind the security gates at Heathrow airport without any moisturiser before boarding a 30hr flight… Spending that much time on a plane without a shower is bad enough already, I just could not do without a moisturiser. As there was an offer (buy £20 worth of No7 products and get a goodie bag worth £22), I ended up buying this particular one at Boots. On first inspection, the cream appears light and not overly fragranced. It also seems to penetrate the skin pretty quickly and feels refreshing. However, it only seems to penetrate my skin: it always leaves a residue that looks like dead skin on your fingers once you have rubbed it off… Not nice. It’s alright when you are on holiday in a relatively green country, but when you get back to London’s fumes and grime, it really feels yuk. I don’t even want to think about what that goop on my face has accumulated at the end of the day. Just for that reason I would not recommend this product, even more so when you consider it would set you back by £17. I have been let down before by other No7 products like their mascara (please see other post).
