Purity Facial Moisturiser

RRP: £5.99/50ml

--What does the promo say?--
"A light mousse moisturiser with a blend of coconut based ingredients plus sweet almond oil, shea butter, and vitamin E which assists in retaining moisture and leaving your skin soft and balanced. Product ingredients: sweet almond oil and coconut oil to soften, moisturise and condition skin membrane; shea butter to soften and condition; beeswax to soothe and protect; vitamin E to act as an antioxidant; aloe vera to soften."

A plastic pot with a screw-top lid; standard white and purple lid in accordance with the rest of the range.

After cleansing (and toning, if like me you're a bit of a toner junkie), rub this into your face at the start of the day. Complement with Purity's overnight moisturiser in the evening.

Natural coconut and almond smells are the most prominent. Delicious.

Stiff, white lotion that leaves no visible residue on the skin once rubbed in.

Weirdly, it feels more like I would expect a night cream to feel: very thick, luxurious and soft. However, it rubs in very well, not needing extra time to sink in like a night cream would. I like a bit of luxury in the morning, so could definitely get used to this...

--Effects on the skin--
High levels of softness and strokability that see you right through to bedtime. It didn't improve my acne, but it didn't make it worse either, and in any case it never claims to do this.

--Value for money--
A lovely, luxurious and yet light moisturiser for daytime at a reasonable price. What more could you want?!
