I’ve recently been trying out The Body Shop Vitamin E Skincare Range, specifically the cream cleanser, toner and aqua boost sorbet. The Body Shop claim the Vitamin E range can help protect against pollution, UVA/B rays and from premature ageing.
To start with, my skin-type is oily/combination, with quite bad dry patches on the apples of my cheeks and my chin area. I initially bought the Aqua Boost Sorbet, back in July at Manchester Airport, after asking the sales assistant what products would help my skin, and this is what she recommended. Then when I visited Molly is Newcastle later on in the year, she asked if I’d like the cleanser and toner, as it hadn’t been working for her. So, I’ve been able to trial a few products from this range.
I use the Vitamin E Cream Cleanser (RRP. £7.50) daily, to remove any makeup and dirt from my skin. It is a soft consistency, and glides your makeup off easily, leaving my skin feeling clean and fresh. You only need a small amount of the products to remove all your makeup, as a little goes a long way.
I’ll then use the Vitamin E Toner (RRP. £7.50), with a cotton pad to remove any residue or leftover impurities. If I’m completely honest, although it does the job and leaves my face feeling refreshed, I would not rank it much higher than cheaper alternatives. Although, it makes my face feeling ready for the next step…
…that is the Aqua Boost Sorbet (RRP. £14). The woman clearly knew her stuff in the store, because this product was great, especially while on holiday in Croatia. It left my face feeling so moisturised and cooled yet not oily, not even in the slightest. the product achieves this by using an aquasphere technology, which drenches the skin with moisture, for all-day hydration. This has to be one of my favourite moisturisers ever!
Overall, as much as I do love this range, especially the Aqua Boost Sorbet, obviously it is not a product designed to aid my blemishes and acne-prone skin. So, although it left my skin feeling softer and helped clear up the dry patches on my cheeks, I definitely want to try out The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Cleaner and Toner, at some point in the future, to see if they work as well as these products, but at the same time, target my spots and blemishes.
Has anyone tried any other products from The Body Shop Vitamin E range, and what do you think of them?
