My skin is facing a severe meltdown at the moment. I’m talking dry skin, blemishes, oily patches, the works. I think it’s down to a mixture of a bad skincare routine so I deserve a slap on the wrist for that, the harsh weather and the air con at college. So to defeat the dry skin, I popped into Boots to pick up the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser but being a student means I can’t afford that kind of luxury so off I went in search of a budget friendly moisturiser. I’ve heard of Una Brennan before, mainly through Caroline Hirons, so I picked it up for a reasonable £14.99 and thought it would do the job.
It looks very humble in it’s tube but this is definitely a go to product in my life from now on. It claims to help balance, hydrate and soothe for healthier looking skin and I’d say it definitely does the job! After just one use I could already see and feel the difference in my once moisture-less skin, and after a couple of weeks of using this my skin felt so much more hydrated and softer. I guess this is down to the ingredients: shea butter, arnica, aloe vera and milk, all of which are renowned for saving dry skin and promoting cell renewal.
I generally use about one to two pea sized blobs which is a good amount for my face and neck and it sinks in like a dream. It’s suitable for sensitive skin and in my experience, hasn’t broken me out which I was delighted to see and it’s also fragrance free which is something I look for in a moisturiser. So it has the thumbs up for all you dry skin ladies and gents!
I can’t sing it’s praises enough so if you’re on a mid-range budget and looking for a new soothing moisturiser then definitely check this out in Boots!
