Olay Essentials - double action night cream

A few blog posts ago - possibly the first of 2014, I mentioned that I wanted to try out some new products, either ones that have just hit the shelves or ones that have been out for a few years. It is time to experiment. 

I really need to take care of my skin so building up my skin care routine is the first step, I don't think washing your face with just warm water is good enough(here comes the gasps of all beauty bloggers).

Recently my face has been quite dry and I have also suffered a little breakout due to being extremely busy at uni and work. I picked up this OLAY essentials double action night cream from Tesco to try out, I chose this over a day cream as I never really like the way make up applies just after using a face moisturiser, it tends to rub off a lot quicker. Does anyone else think this? Another plus side of using it over night is that there are more hours for it to get to work regenerating the skins appearance and replacing the moisture lost during the day. 

You do not need to apply a lot of the cream when using it as little goes quite far which is a bonus, however it is really cheap at £4.99 if you are on a budget. I have only used this once and my skin did feel a little refreshed the next morning. I am hoping that this continues and I can notice a difference in the long run. If anyone has tried this cream then I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
