Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream

Hey girlies, I’m sorry for my lack of posts this week. It’s my first week back and I had a load of emails to get through plus an audit today, which I got 100% for btw! *happy dance*

Some of you will already have heard of this cream, it’s taking the beauty community by storm at the minute. I heard of it through Nic of Pixiwoo. It was roughly November time when they first mentioned it on one of their videos and it was around this time that I resembled a puff pastry sheet! I marched to Boots the very next day to get my own and I’ve not looked back since. Like Nic, I too suffer from dry skin on my face and nothing was working for me. A combination of the heating on at home, cold weather outside and a lack of drinking anything but Tea had taken its toll on my skin.

I have since got my Mum ♥ and my sister ♥ hooked on it too, the only downside to it being so popular is that it has been constantly out of stock on the Boots website for months! This product isn’t cheap it retails at £7.65 for a 50ml tube but a little goes a long way, I am now on my 3rd tube.

I use this in the morning under my foundation which I find I don’t have any problems with, some say it’s a little heavy for under foundation but I quite like the slip it gives.

What they say
“Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream is an innovative new therapy specially formulated to intensively nourish and help repair your skins natural barrier. Oilatum Natural Face Cream is suitable for dry and sensitive skin and is free from fragrances, preservatives and emulsifiers.”

Just a quick tip, do not throw away your tube without cutting it in half like me, when I thought I couldn’t get any more out of it I snipped it in half and got another week!

Long live Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream! It’s the dogs danglies!

Have any of you jumped on this bandwagon too? What are your thoughts?


  1. Been looking in Boots non stop for this ever since the Pixiwoo girls raved about it! I might have to order it online, I'm in need of a face moisturiser!xx

  2. @Lauren Rose - It has been sold out in my local boots for weeks, I'm so annoyed and it's out of stock on Boots website too, they need to get their act together! x

  3. I finally tracked this down yesterday, I have combination skin. So far, I really love it. It's a good night cream for me (I use Olay with spf 15 in the day as I usually walk to work)... x

  4. ps Lauren amazon.co.uk has it, including a bigger 75m size. I struck lucky yesterday, I wasn't even at Boots looking for that (I wanted Botanics makeup remover which I also found and love btw).

  5. I have to remember to mentione this product to my friend, she gets really dry skin. I think this would be too heavy for mine.
    Well done for getting 100% :D

  6. Nice blog...and great posts! :)

    Thanks for the great review !

  7. @Ruthy - I use it for daytime and find it's not too oily for me but i do have dry skin, thanks for the tip on Amazon! x

    @Katey - Thanks hun, yeah mention it to your friend I think she'll love it x

    @Tres Glamour - Thanks for following I will take a look x

  8. I've been using it since last year & after Pixiwoo mentioned it in their video it was impossible to get hold of. Anyway, went into Boots on 4 occasions over several months & it was always out of stock, same with their website. So, I emailed Boots & they got back to me saying they wouldn't be stocking in instore or online for the forseable future. I've been getting it the past few months from Lloyds Pharmacy [cheaper than Boots - £6] ... they always have it in stock so it's clearly not a supply issue with the company ... seems to just be a Boots issue. Anyway, I've had to stop using it b/c I've somehow developed dry patches on my skin & I've never had dry patches ever ... returned to using Embryolisse & that's sorted them out. There's definitely something in the Oilatum that doesn't quite agree with my skin, just took ages to realise!


Thanks so much for your messages girlies, they make my day! xxx
