I purchased the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Night Cream and Serum whilst killing time in Covent Garden waiting for my Osteo. My best friend Ling had been raving about the Serum and it was on promotion with the night cream. I love an offer and had to have both.
I’ve been using both products for a couple of months and here’s my thoughts:
It does what it says on the tin -it’s rich, very moisturising, non greasy and my skin feels smoother and softer. I’d say this is very good for dry and dehydrated skin. What puts me off is that it has a really thick consistency and feels heavy on the skin. I don’t like caking my skin in a thick moisturiser at night. The cream is highly fragranced – it reminds me of Johnson’s Baby Lotion. I suspect a fair few chemicals were used to achieve the pink colour and fragrance and this turns me off completely. MISS!
Impressed. I’ve applied it on its own and also added a few drops to my moisturiser and found it worked both ways. Great for dry skin as it helps to soften hard skin, also good for hands and elbows. Really light formula which the skin soaks up like a sponge. Face appears brighter and skin is softer the next day. Not sticky, greasy and no cheap scent. What I really like is that this is a serum and an oil all in one which speeds up my night skincare routine (a little!) .Thumbs up! HIT!
