The Skin System Radiance Day Cream | REVIEW

Just last week I spotted The Skin System Range in Asda – it’s a super-affordable range designed specifically for the supermarket – basically own-brand skincare at crazy prices. The Day and Night creams were just Β£2 each which sounds little too good to be true. So I decided to grab the Day Cream and test it out!

First Impressions

The first thing that drew me to this range was the design – for an own-brand supermarket product it’s actually really pretty! The box had a really nice, clean design and looks a lot more expensive that it actually is!

Inside, the frosted glass jar is so pretty, although the silver lid is a little lightweight and does feel cheap.

Opening it up, the smell isn’t unpleasant. It smells nice and clean but it’s nothing special – I wouldn’t exactly go out of my way to find something like this.

What’s it Supposed To Do?

So according to the packaging this is a Radiance Day Cream with SPF15. It’s supposed to:

  • Maintain skin’s natural balance
  • Fight the first signs of ageing
  • Help tired and dull skin
  • Improve luminosity – leaving skin with a healthy glow
  • Protect against sun damage

But how much of this does it actually do?

I Try It Out…

When I first put it on my face I realised that you really can’t put too much of this on or it just sits on your skin, it struggles to absorb too quickly.

Once I’d managed to rub it in my skin did look greasy for a good 20 minutes or so but after that it began to go back to normal but it still looks a little shiner than normal.

In terms of my skin tone, it feels like it does look a lot more even and, I’m not sure if I’m imagining it, but I think the pores on my cheeks look a little smaller.

By far, the best thing is how soft my skin feels though; it’s really, really nice!

Is It Worth It?

Well for Β£2 it’s definitely good but is it better than spending a little more? I’m not sure…

I feel like if I’m staying home all day it’s nice to use it in the morning to give my skin that soft feeling all day and not worry about the shininess. However, if I was going out or wanted to put makeup on, I don’t think this is something I’d want to start my day with.

Overall, I’d maybe give it a 6/10.
