It started when I was a teenager, reading all those glam magazines and realising that my skin needs hydration and that it will continue to look young if I take proper care of it.
It continued in my adulthood when my thyroid started playing up, leaving my skin feeling dry, especially during winter and spring months. And then, my collection of hand creams, body lotions and milks continued to grow, to the point that now, there is always a tube in every bag I own and a pot in every bathroom(we have three in this house), on the kitchen sill and a couple of “emergency” ones in the bathroom cupboard, for the unlikely situation of me ever running out of hand cream🙂
So you can imagine my reaction when I was offered the opportunity to review My Trusty Little Sunflower Cream. I had no hesitation saying yes and was very curious to try it out since it came with high praise.
You see, the cream has been used in the NHS system(more precisely in the Salisbury hospital) for a while now and has been designed specifically with skin patients in mind. It contains sunflower oil(hence the name!), aimed to help replace essential fatty acids and leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft. I have no skin conditions but people with dermatitis swear by its efficacy.
What did I think of it?
I chose the lavender version and was pleasantly impressed with the subtle smell and velvety feel. It did leave my hands feel soft, although be it a bit greasy, so try applying it on the back of your hands rather than on the whole surface, especially if you drive.
At £11.99 per 250 ml dispenser, it would be a bit on the dear side but considering the fact that ALL proceeds go to the NHS, so hopefully, back to our care, it is a fair deal.
If I got your interest and want to give it a go, head to their official website and have a look for yourselves.
