Does your regime already include night cream?
I normally use day cream both morning and night.
Is the cream easy to apply?
Easily absorbed. I didn’t notice any difference between the constancy of the two creams though.
How does it immediately feel on your skin?
Not heavy, easily absorbed.
Did you notice any instant benefits?
Did you notice any long-term benefits?
After two weeks use of the day and the night cream – no.
What do you think of the packaging?
The silhouette meadow flowers packaging on the box really appealed to me – very modern and attractive enough to make these eligible as a gift for a friend
Is it clear from the instructions how and when to use this product?
Would you buy this product?
Sorry, no! Despite the packaging being fresh and modern, and the name “Urban Veda" having similar connotations, the slightly old-fashioned smell of the creams seemed to be at odds with its brand image. Personally I found the rose fragrance of both creams unpleasant and overpowering. But someone who likes rose fragrance may love it.
I always look for a SPF 15 in a day cream even through the winter, but this day cream has no SPF.
Do you think it’s good value?
Based on RRP of £14.99 / 50 ml each at Holland and Barrett, no not good value. The creams felt no different, and delivered no obvious benefits above my usual budget cream (Olay essentials complete care £6.99 for 100ml) more than half the price for double the amount.
Have you had any comments from friends/family about your skin after trying the product?
Only that it smells old-fashioned!
