B. Energised - Sunshine Vitamin Shot

Vitamin D is important to us because it helps to keep our teeth and bones strong, and we get vitamin D from the sunshine. But in the winter we usually stay in as much as possible - after all, who wants to go out when the weather is so MEH!

Although the Sunshine Vitamin Shot doesn't contain Vitamin D, it does have a pretty good mimic for you and sometimes the mimic products are just as good as the real thing. Like Vitamin D, you will find that Vitamin Shot will speed up the recovery of the facial skin with its clever combination of ingredients. The packet claims to give you a smoother, more youthful and radiant look. We were sent some Sunshine Vitamin Shot to review as part of Superdrug Blog Squad and here is how I got on.

The bottle looks quite chic and has the image of being a good quality product. The bottle has a pump action to distribute it, this means there is no mess and it is easy and fast to use as part of your daily beauty regime. To get the full impact of a review I decided to use the product on one side of my face, my left side. The left side of my face is drier than the right side anyway and will always benefit from some extra moisturisation. I love the smell of the Vitamin Shot, it reminds me of oranges on holiday, the Vitamin Shot went a long way, especially as I was only using it on one side of my face. I used it day and night as instructed on the bottle and when the Vitamin Shot dried, I felt my skin go tight and dry. As I wasn't sure if it was part of the process, I carried on using it for two weeks to give it a proper review. But my skin just felt drier as time went on and I was left with my dry patches looking even drier! The lovely smell of the Vitamin Shot is perfume, so I think that was the main irritant on my skin. The box stated it was for all skin types, but if your skin is sensitive or dry, I possibly wouldn't use this. My colleagues at work noticed how dry my skin was becoming and I soon stopped using it. Although it isn't suitable for my skin, it may well suit yours. It is covered with the 100% money back guarantee, so if you are not satisfied with it you can return it for 100% of your money back.

The Sunshine Vitamin Shot is available from Superdrug for £12.99 and at the moment it is a buy one get one free offer. It is vegetarian-friendly and carries the Leaping Bunny symbol, so you know it hasn't been tested on animals and neither have any of the ingredients.
