The Moisturiser I Cannot Do Without♥

Moisturising is one of the most crucial steps in my skincare routine. Despite having oily skin, I still moisturise regardless. I have been through various different moisturisers, some not even for oily skin but hey ho, sometimes they worked well. For ages now, I had been using my beloved Boots essentials cucumber moisturiser but after returning from my holidays, I decided I'd switch things up and try the E45 Moisturising Lotion.


E45 is a skincare brand whose products are created for people who suffer from dry skin. While I may not suffer from dry skin, I suffer from the complete opposite - oily skin. By no means does this mean that I cannot use this moisturiser because at the end of the day, it's going to hydrate and moisturise my skin regardless. This actually works really well with my oily skin - my skin feels extremely soft and doesn't clog up my pores as it's lightweight. I have found that with some moisturisers they can clog up the pores on my nose but fortunately with this one, it doesn't. I've noticed that there isn't any strong scent, and this is due to it being perfume free, meaning it's gentle enough for everyone to use.


After returning from my holidays, I noticed that some of my skin was going that dry, flaky way (especially my arms), so I popped some of this moisturiser on and it honestly helped my skin so much really quickly. Using it overnight helps with the dry patches, healing them. Very rarely from time to time my skin can become quite itchy but I find that this helps to sooth these areas. At the moment, I use it twice a day everyday for a facial moisturiser and I don't think my skin has ever felt and looked as good (apart from the odd few breakouts but this is my own fault for removing a lot of makeup late one night with a wipe - my bad!) but I can genuinely tell you that once I run out of this bottle, I will happily repurchase one again - it's certainly worth the money!

Unlike some moisturisers, this one is not thick, heavy nor greasy, it's lightweight, thin and my skin absorbs it straight away. People always assume that if they have oily skin they shouldn't moisturise because it'll make their skin worse with oil production but this is such a myth - it's still vital to moisturise as your skin needs it! That is why I love this moisturiser so much, trust me, I cannot hype it up enough. Regardless of whether or not you have dry skin, it's amazing - you will be left with velvet smooth skin.

Have you ever tried the E45 range? Share your experiences with me!

  1. This sounds like a moisturiser I need to try, I do have dry skin but from your review it does sound good for everyone. I will have to check it out once I've finished using up my current moisturisers.

  6. I've never tried E45 - I assumed it would be really thick and oily for some reason. I'm intrigued to give it a go now though!!

  7. I've actually never heard of this brand, but your review of it is great! I think my favorite body moisturizer would have to be anything from Hemp or TreeHut. Overall, awesome post <3
