You will probably know from my previous posts that I suffer from very dry skin and eczema, and because of this I have very sensitive skin and I do have to be very careful with which products I use. I first heard about My Trusty Little Sunflower moisturising cream last year on the BBC One show, as it was describe for sensitive skin and it intrigued me then, and I liked the background story of My Trusty Little Sunflower cream - with it being created by the NHS in Salisbury for it's patients. So when I was offered to review it, of course I said yes please.
My Trusty is based on an original formula developed within the NHS and 100% of profits generated from the sales of this product are re-invested into patient care. The cream’s RRP is £6.99 or if you sign up to the subscription service, they send you a tube each month for the reduced price of £6.29 per month, which can be cancelled at anytime.
For this review I opted for the lavender scented option, this is because I like the smell of lavender, and mainly due to its natural healing, soothing & restoring qualities. The My Trusty is also available in the original unscented option, and both are available in two sizes, 100ml tube or 250ml dispenser.
- Rich in essential fatty acids
- Formula developed with clinical scientists
- Quickly and easily absorbed
- Not tested on animals
- No parabens
- Contains 5% pure sunflower oil
- Free from perfume, lanolin and colour
- Sunflower oil contains abundant amounts of an essential fatty acid called Linoleic Acid which may have a beneficial effect on the functioning of the skin.
I have been using My Trusty as a night cream on my face, and it has been working quite nicely, i.e. I have not had any flare ups on my very sensitive skin and it has been very moisturising. It is a non greasy cream that sinks quickly into the skin, and I find it very nourishing overall. In addition you can use it on any part of your body, not just for the face, as I have also been using it on my arms and hands which is just as moisturising.
For the low price of £6.99 this multi-use moisturising cream is excellent value for money and the fact that all profits go straight back into the NHS, is an extra benefit also. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
