Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Optimum Phyto Brighter Triple Action Illuminating Black Moisturiser which I’ve been using as a night cream since late January.
This product promises to reduce age spots and skin discoloration, to help prevent further skin pigmentation, and to boost complexion radiance. It also claims to make skin feel and look firmer and more youthful. Now read on if you’d like to know if this product is any good. 🙂
First of all, this moisturiser is really black! Once it’s massaged into the skin, it’s hardly visible. However, it does leave a slight greyish residue on the skin, and the black pigment seems to act as an eyebrow mascara! 😀
I think this moisturiser hydrates my skin very well. However, it doesn’t contain sunscreen, so I can’t use it as a day moisturiser (which is why I’m using it as a night cream). There’s one more thing – this moisturiser smells awful. I can’t really describe it, but if Etat Libre d’Orange were to make a fragrance with the name of “un air de toxic waste”, this would be it! And yes, I’m sure the product hasn’t gone off!
All in all, I know I won’t be buying this product again. I’m actually glad it’ll be finished soon! Superdrug Optimum Phyto Brighter Triple Action Illuminating Black Moisturiser is available as 50ml for £12.99. I paid £6.45 (half price offer).This product is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo), and it’s suitable for vegans.
