New from E45


posted by on E45, Skin Care


E45 has long been recognised as a brand that deals with the troubles sensitive skin throws up.  My mum is a faithful fan as E45 really soothes her dry, itchy skin and I am sure many others swear by it with the same relief.

Well the experts at E45 have launched a new range designed to give skin a touch of special treatment while at the same time, maintain health skin. 

If you’re a sensitive skin sufferer, the choice is extremely limited when it comes to fragranced and indulgent products that are well tolerated by sensitive skin.  What’s left is dull, odourless lotions and creams but now that’s thankfully changed with the arrival of this new range. 

There are three different lotions: Silky Radiance (gold), Touchably Smooth (green) and Nourish and Restore (pink), each clinically proven to provide 24 hour hydration and Hypoallergenic.  Also there is a fourth addition called Intense Recovery (red) for very dry skin.

The products contain E45′s unique formula to replenish lost hydration and vitamin B to restore suppleness, apparently in just 3 weeks.  It’s ideal for mature skin though anyone of any age can use it.

I’ve always shied away from E45, mostly because the original product never really filled me with much excitement but I am fortunate not to have over-sensitive skin to need it.  However recently I was sent this new range to try so it was going to be interesting from my perspective at how I got on with them.

I’ve been trialling these regularly for a few weeks and the benefits are noticeable straight away: they’re non-greasy and absorb into the skin quickly so I can get dressed fast and not worry about the lotions staining my clothes.  They are lightly fragranced too but I feel this isn’t obvious, which doesn’t affect me wearing my favourite fragrance. 

More importantly the lotion keeps my skin moisturised for hours so I’m good to go after one application.  I even took it with me for a recent spa weekend and favoured it over using the hotel’s posh toiletries.

Out of the range, my favourite is Silky Radiance simply because it contains a subtle shimmer, which shows up beautifully on my arms.

The new range from E45 is available from Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets nationwide, priced at £3.99 for 250ml and £5.49 for 400ml except for Silky Radiance which is only available in the 250ml size.

Back in February, I revealed Yardley would be launching a new scent to mark the Queen’s 60 years of reign.

Well, their fragrance Royal Diamond is inspired by the upcoming Diamond Jubilee, which is this coming weekend (in case you didn’t know).

So what can be said about Royal Diamond?  Not surprisingly Yardley has remained loyal to its beliefs of creating a sophisticated sweet fragrance that echoes of all things quintessentially English.  It is also special for another reason: it is their first floral bouquet perfume.

With delicate hints of pear and bergamot with a subtle note of honey, the fragrance is wrapped up in a bouquet of floral fancies, nodding at Yardley’s classic range of rose, peony and lily of the valley scents.  The finishing touches come from soft cedar wood, benzoin, vanilla and sandalwood, which makes for a enchanting and sparkling perfume.

The bottle itself is vintage Yardley yet charmingly understated.  Less is more after all and unlike a lot of products marking the Jubilee celebrations, this one isn’t for a limited time only.

I consider Royal English Daisy (which launched last year) as one of my favourite scents, and Royal Diamond is most definitely another I am happy to add to my collection.  It’s not heavy or sickly sweet, and is perfect for everyday wear.  It’s also made in England, something I am proud to see.

The Royal Diamond collection includes: Eau de Toilette (50ml) priced at £9.99 and the Body Spray (75ml) at £2.49.
