    Body Shop Vitamin E

    Since turning 30, I have become more focused on my skin care. I always love to try ranges I have not tried before and those that have great benefits. So today I am sharing an old but goodie range from The Body Shop – Vitamin E.

    This range is a trustee favourite from the organic brand and do wonder why I have never picked this up earlier. So before we get into the nitty gritty of these fab products.

    Here are the benefits of this Vitamin E range.

    • Helps protect against pollution, cigarette smoke, and UVA/UVB rays
    • Protects the skin from premature ageing
    • Targets concerns of damaging effects caused by the environment
    • Suitable for all skin types

    I always pick up a selected few from a range I have not tried before to see how it works for my skin. So I selected these few that I felt would provide a great impact on my skin.

    So I love to add steps to my skincare routine (which is already pretty hefty!) But I wanted to add an extra step to help boost my skin and this beauty (as you can tell from the name) is a perfect choice. I use this after cleansing and is also the ideal base for my brightening serum. The gel is a lightweight formula and I apply this with a cotton pad. It instantly soaks into the skin and feels hydrated.

    After a week’s use:

    Skin feels softer and smoother

    Skin appears to be brighter and replenished

    Feels nourished and moisturised


    Vitamin E Moisture Cream

    Moisturising creams are always the first product I grab when trying any new skincare. For me its the most important part as its the essential product that locks in all the moisture and acts as a first base to your primer and rest of your make up. As I have oily skin, I love this cream benefits to all skin types. I tend to find with some products aimed for oily skin it can mattify the skin and remove too much of your natural oils. These oils are what keeps your skin looking supple and youthful.

    Enough of my rambles…. this moisture cream (one of the brand’s best-selling product) meant to protect and lock in moisture, with ingredients such as aloe vera and shea butter it keeps the skin hydrated all day and prevent dryness. My first use, this cream melted into the skin beautifully leaving a zingy feeling and loved its non-greasy feel too.

    After a week’s use:

    Skin felt plumper and more radiant

    Appeared to more softer and brighter

    Acted as a great base for makeup application


    Vitamin E Eye Cream

    Last but not least one of my favourite parts of my skincare routine – eye cream. This beauty is not only an improved formula but contains hyaluronic acid from France to help protect and hydrate the delicate skin around the eye. I love applying an eye cream it’s always my last step to both my day and night time routine. I find eye creams can take a bit longer than other products to see its long-lasting effects. This eye cream is meant to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. I have not seen these results instantly but loving what I am seeing so far. Hopefully, I will see more of a difference in the next coming weeks.

    After a week’s use:

    Feels hydrated and nourished

    Reduced puffiness and appears brighter

    Acts as a perfect base for my concealer


    Overall thoughts….?

    I am loving this range and impressed with its results only after a week. I love its pink packaging and authentic branding. The scent is subtle yet gorgeous and always get excited to use this every morning. I am more impressed with the essence lotion and day cream and definitely will be a continued product to use in my everyday routine. It’s gentle and nourishing for the skin and most of all I love the zingy refreshed feeling I get once I finish my routine. If you are new to skin care or have a basic routine and want to add more into it – this range is the perfect start for you. Price wise its great value and lasts for a long time too. Often more times than not The Body Shop often have offers where you can save a whole a lot more.


    Oh did I mention they currently have a 3 for 2 offer on their skin care ranges!
