The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
Advantages: Provides good moisturisation and feels nice.
I recently bought some of this Bodyshop Vitamin E Moisture Cream after initially trying another product, the eye cream, in the same range. I was so impressed with how the eye cream was performing that I thought the moisture cream could also be beneficial to my skin. This cream is sold by the Bodyshop as part of a large range of products infused with the Vitamin E rich formula. They also sell things like soap, body butter, night cream, BB cream and more in this range. They also sell different varieties of the moisture cream such as an 'intense' version and an 'illuminating' version. I also bought the night cream to use alongside this moisture cream, which I believe is intended to be used as a daily day cream.
The product is sold in two different sizes - either a small 15ml (0.5 OZ or 14g) pot or a 50ml pot. The price difference is £4 for the little tub or £11 for the larger one. I decided to be cautious and buy the smaller size product since I'd never used it before. I think the smaller tubs are handy to keep in your make-up bag and they make great travel companions as they are really lightweight. To be honest though, it's probably more economically wise to get the bigger size tub as there is not all that much cream in a 15ml sized tub.
The product is packaged in a little pale pink plastic tub. This has a screw off black lid. The packaging is made to be durable and secure. The tub is so small the label is made to be double backed and you have to peel it back to reveal information about the product such as ingredients and product benefits.
The cream is a pale blossom pink shade, exactly the same colour as the plastic tub. It has a silken, milky consistency which makes it easy to transfer from tub to fingertips. It feels soft and smooth when you work it into your skin. A little goes quite a long way and I find I don't need to rub very hard to cover a large area of skin. The cream spreads easily and then sinks in as you gently caress the area. It then softens that area of skin in an instant but doesn't leave the skin feeling wet or greasy. If I moisturise one side of my face and then feel the difference between that and the non moisturised side it is a very obvious difference. The moisturised side of my face feels like the soft skin of a fruit, hydrated and bouncy to the touch. The cream also makes skin look better instantly too. Skin appears brighter and more alive than before using the product.
The moisture cream is really good for applying in the morning both when you aren't going to glam up or as a base for make-up. I find that all of my make-up products are compatible with the cream. I like the fact that the cream feels light on the skin and doesn't leave my skin looking shiny. This means I feel comfortable using this cream and baring my face even when I'm wearing not a scrap of make-up! The cream also makes me skin feel cool and refreshed.
The cream gives long lasting moisture and lasts me through the day until night time when I can cleanse my face and then apply the night cream. I'm really pleased with how my skin is looking and feeling as I'm using this cream. It always feels protected from dryness when I'm using this cream. It also feels healthy and looks brighter and more youthful. Vitamin E is renowned for it's anti-ageing qualities and as I'm in my thirties I need that!
This is a good moisturising staple that I'm happy to use daily. One thing that would deter me from using it is the fact that it has no SPF factor and during the summer my UV sensitive skin needs extra protection. As for now though, in these cloudy spring time months this cream is suitable for me and performing excellently and I'm using my little tub everyday. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light but long lasting moisturiser.
Price wise this is a little expensive. I would recommend going for the bigger tub and looking for an online deal to reduce the price.
Summary: Pleased with my purchase.
