Superdrug Optimum Swiss Apple Overnight Skin Renewal Serum

You may remember that I raved about the Superdrug Swiss Apple cream recently.  To update I am still using the cream and am liking it very much although for my super dry skin, that is now being wrecked by having to increase some medication that I have to take, I have had to add some Simple moisturiser into the mix, just to make sure that my skin is suitably hydrated.  I was sent the Swiss Apple Overnight Skin Renewal Serum to try alongside the night cream and again I have been as pleasantly surprised by this as I was by the cream for during the day.

Nice glass bottle with a pump, perfect for dispensing - I use about 3 pumps of this to do a good slather on my face and neck.  Like the day cream this has no real smell and unlike the day cream no slight tingle either, which is nice - I am happy for the day cream to tingle on basis if the tingle increased and felt like it was causing a problem I could deal with it, with night serum if similar happened I might sleep through and wake up with ravaged skin!
The serum feels lovely when you apply it, nice and cooling which I like as often my face feels over heated, its quite thin so doesn't feel like its clagging up your skin and I have added a drop of facial oil afterwards a couple of times when my skin is feeling particularly parched, ladies with normal skin would not need the addition I suspect, my skin is super dry!

I have to be honest and say that a couple of times a few people have commented on how radiant my skin looks and whenever someone has passed comment it is the day after I have used the serum the night before - sometimes I am a bit rubbish and forget to use it! 

So for £14.99 would I recommend this?  I think I would in all honesty, it is lovely to use and whilst my skin hasn't been transformed it does seem better when I used this serum.  I have to point out that my skin is having a complete meltdown at the moment, partially hormonal and possibly because I haven't been too well recently so I think anything I used that was going to give really visible results would have to be a tiny bit short of a miracle.  I think if you are in your 30's and wanting to ward off early on set wrinkling this could be a good thing to try.


  1. Swit swoooo! Where is this available to buy Debs? xx

  2. Thanks Simone forgot to add the link:
    and online you can still buy the day cream and the night serum as a bundle for £19.98. Or of course you can buy in Superdrug.

  3. I have this but I must have an older bottle as it is like a dropper top, which is annoying. I have been using it for about 2 weeks but haven't really noticed a great difference, but will keep trying it :) x

  4. sounds good, i think ive read a few other good repots on this one too xx

  5. I really really struggle with serums. I don't like the texure or feel of them as they just sit on my face. Do you think they are more beneficial to drier skins?

  6. Hi Nic, I have a facial oil with a dropper top which I liked the idea of - very apothecary which appealed, but the reality is that it makes it tricky to use!

    Nicoletta - I do think its good value and worth trying!

    Annabella - My dry skin craves serums and I generally find them very calming and cooling which is a huge help too, I always think they are more concentrated source of hydration/soothing/moisture which is why I like them!

  7. I've tried many different belly creams and stretch mark prevention products and this is by far my favorite. It's a little pricey but I figure it's worth it. I'm currently pregnant w/ twins and rub this in every night and most mornings. I also use the belly oil. It smells great and absorbs quickly. No greasy feeling.

  8. Thanks in favor of sharing such a nice thought, article is nice, thats

  9. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to
    start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
