John Gosnell's Original Vitamin E Cream.

John Gosnell's The Original Vitamin E Cream.
A good vitamin e cream seems to be somewhat of a staple product and is always something I love to have around. I tend to change my moisturiser fairly often but I always have a vitamin e cream in the mix somewhere. So when John Gosnell's & Co. were kind enough to send me some of theirs a few weeks back I was very happy to try it out. Based in Lewis, East Sussex, John Gosnell's is actually the UK's oldest cosmetics manufacturer and can trace the companies routes back to 1677! Their history is also really interesting and available on their website, if you are a history buff like me you will want to know more!

I have been using the cream for a few weeks now and I am really impressed! It is moisturising and nourishing, whilst still managing not to be too heavy. I have used other vitamin e creams in the past but have found that they begin to get a little too much. I notice my skin becoming oily, acne prone and very unbalanced. I have combination skin so this is always a bit of an issue but I found that The John Gosnell's Vitamin E Cream did a much better job than most, at controlling the oil fluctuations on my skin. It also seems to sink into my skin further and faster than other moisturisers I have tried. I think this is what helps maintain balance as it is not left sitting on the top layer of my skin, causing oiliness. It still manages to be really nourishing though making my skin feel really soft and it really does just drink the stuff up!

I have also been getting a few small patches of dry skin recently and I found that when I used The John Gosnell's Vitamin E Cream, it disappeared overnight and I have been able to use it a number of times since, when it flairs up. John Gosnell's uses natural ingredients for its sources of Vitamin E, including Shea Butter, Wheatgerm oil and Olive oil all of which are great dry skin. It also has that wonderful, classic kind of smell that I find oddly comforting. Perhaps because it reminds me that it has been well and truly tested by time!
