How to use
I use this moisturiser as the last step in my morning skincare routine
I used this as a day moisturiser as the last step in my morning routine.
Overall opinion
Overall it’s not a terrible day cream, and for £2.99 having spf is a bonus! But it doesn’t leave my skin feeling overly moisturised and because of the white cast on my skin I have to wait to do my makeup which is not good in a rush. But it does come with a lot of product which last’s a while!
Overall I hate this product and couldn’t wait to use it up! It’s not hydrating, there’s glitter particles in the product which is very obvious on the skin! It doesn't sit well underneath makeup if anything it makes your makeup ‘roll'. I wouldn’t recommend this, it is horrible. 


If I had to recommend one it would be there bog standard day cream but even then I would say a pay a little bit more and go for yes to, soap and glory or No7. 

I hope you found this comparison useful!
See you soon!
