I spotted these on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots, and picked up the day cream, night cream, and BB cream (review to come soon!). I find that my skin is definitely on the dry side and although there was an option for normal-dry, I thought I'd play it safe and go for the dry-very dry, a little more moisture couldn't hurt right?
I'll start with the No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream, I actually quite like this. I'll use it on a morning after quickly washing my face with water and spritzing on my Lush Eau Roma Water. It's not extremely heavy on the skin, but I do find I need to leave it on for that extra five minutes before putting on any makeup. Moisture-wise, it did last throughout the day and I didn't notice any tightness later in the evening. One thing I do like is the SPF 15 factor. It's maybe a little on the low side, but anythings better than nothing! The day cream is branded as 'hypo-allergenic', which is just a made up term that cosmetic companies use to sound better. No, really. My skin wasn't sore after using this, but it did increase redness on my cheeks and nose.
The No7 Beautiful Night Cream on the other hand, was awful. It did moisturise my skin as I'd expect it to, but it stung so badly each time that I've had to stop using it. Literally above my eyes and across my cheek bones would burn up every time I used this. Even my boyfriend tried some and said the same was happening to him. I find it pretty weird how a company can call it's products 'hypo-allergenic' when there are no official tests or standards it must go through. It's like a food company calling there food meat free, when in fact there could be meat in their products, but there are no regulations. I just feel pretty let down, and I wished I'd picked up something else in that 3 for 2 offer. And for £13.50, there really shouldn't be anything in a cream that could cause a reaction.
I don't think I'll be repurchasing these products. I really wanted to like them, and although the day cream is nice, it's not amazing enough to warrant a holy grail status. And the night cream, well.
