E45 Overnight Hand Cream + Lotion

Monday, February 23, 2015
I hosted a giveaway featuring E45 back in January and it went down so well, from the comments most people have tried and love E45 products. I have tried it years and years ago but I was excited to try their products again along with one of their newer releases. 

The product I was most excited to try is the *E45 Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream (£3.99, 50ml) which as a sufferer of eczema and very dry hands this product sounds like a dream to me! I started using it during the day and it works so well at reducing the appearance and feel of dryness as well as the tight feeling associated with dryness and eczema. The cream doesn't irritate the eczema I have on my hand and it absorbs fairly quickly. Since finding a faster absorbing hand cream for daytime use, I have been using this product solely overnight with cotton gloves which leaves my hands so smooth and moisturised; it reduces the look of eczema on my hand too. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

Next up is one of their original products, the *E45 Moisturising Lotion (£4.70, 200ml). I haven't tried this product before and from the claims it sounds like it is great for dry, sensitive skin types which apart from my face and hands I don't really have. However, it is a lightweight but moisturising lotion that doesn't leave any residue and it absorbs relatively quickly. I would personally want to use a body butter rather than a lotion but if you don't like heavy body butters or if you do have sensitive skin then this would be a fantastic product to try. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Overall, E45 is such a fantastic, back to basics brand that is perfect for those with dry, sensitive skin, including skin conditions such as eczema. Both products are effective and lovely to use although the overnight hand cream is the one that will be on my shopping list when it runs out! 

Have you tried either of these products or any from E45?

  1. These products look amazing! E45 is brand I always see around but have never actually got around to trying yet. I will definitely give their hand cream a go as my hands have been so dry over the colder months. Great review x

  3. It's always great to hear about products that really target dry skin. I tend to have very dry skin (not so much on my face but body) so I am always looking for very hydrating products.

  4. I used to use the lotion a lot as I used to swim almost everyday - it was great - chlorine is not your skin's friend! ;)

  6. My dry hands need this like NO BODY'S business. I neglect my hands way too much and they are always too dry. I need something to use that's simple and effective like this overnight cream!

  12. I sometimes suffer from eczema. It's been a while now, but I think I should be prepared regardless! These products seem really good to have just incase. They're not breaking the bank either and my boyfriend is using this range aswell!
