Lloydspharmacy YOUR Organics Replenishing Face Day Cream

RRP: £4.99 for 50ml

--What does the promo say?--
"A recent study has shown that pomegranate can stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in a mild thickening of the epidermis and dermis of the skin. It also helps prevent the breakdown of collagen fibres which can slow the signs of ageing. Containing SPF 15 the Replenishing Day Cream contains everything you need to face the outside world with the confidence that your skin is well prepared and protected."

A pump action white and turquoise bottle with a clear see-through lid. Very portable - be assured that customs won't frown on you at the airport with this.

Apply liberally to face and neck in the morning after cleansing and toning.

The pomegranate smell really comes through nicely, but it shouldn't interfere with any perfume you're using.

A white, slightly runny cream/lotion.

As stated above, perhaps a little too runny, but not to the extent that it slides down your face before you have a chance to rub it in. It absorbs well, too.

--How does your skin feel afterwards?--
Honestly? Not that much different. If you're looking for a wow-factor then you won't get it - but it is very light and therefore good for summer as it definitely doesn't make your skin feel bogged down.

--Effects over time--
While that uber-smoothness is never really achieved, dry patches are combated adequately and face is kept feeling plumped and well.

--Value for money--
Spend your fiver on the wondrous Eye and Lip Lift or night cream from this range instead, and for your moisturiser go to Garnier or Liz Earle.
