I have always loved products from The Body Shop. It suits my sensitive, dry skin very well. I have been using The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream for over two months, and it has benefitted my skin. So when I went to the store to restock this night cream, I went ahead and purchased The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash.

It comes in a baby pink tube with a flip-open cap, and the texture is creamy. Overall, the size and the packaging is very practical and convenient.

I use it daily in the morning and at night before applying the night cream. Its texture and feel are amazing. My dry skin wakes up like a new skin in the morning. I love how rich this facial cleanser is. It does not dry out my skin, nor does it feel stretchy. It removes all dirt from my face without stripping off its natural oils. And trust me, my dry skin needs every bit of moisture available.

There is nothing in this world that is fault-free, so I do have some glitches regarding this face wash. Compared to other TBS products I have used, this does not stand out. It has a very distinct chemical smell. It does fade away once I rinse it off though. To add to that, this face wash does not form enough lather. Since it is creamy (which I have no problem with), this face wash is a little slippery. Thankfully, it washes off easily.

The positives of this face wash outweigh the negatives so I will still repurchase it unless a better one comes around. For now, I am OK with it.

Does not remove waterproof makeup
2/5

PROS

Convenient packaging

Removes excess oil

Decent cleansing

CONS

Contains silicon

Does not remove waterproof mascara


The Body Shop Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash does a fine job of cleaning out all impurities and excess oil, but I am quite disappointed with it. It fails to remove waterproof makeup, and when I checked the list of ingredients, I found out that it has silicone. My skin is very delicate so I cannot have silicon in my skin care products. I cannot compromise on that. I feel like I am at a loss here because of the high price I paid for it.

My skin is baby soft!

PROS

Gentle

Cleanses skin well

Does not strip off moisture

Promotes healthy skin

Smoothens skin

CONS

Expensive


This face wash is one of the best I have purchased so far. I have sensitive skin, so this creamy face wash works very well on me. After two weeks of use, I went ahead and brought the Aqua Boost cream to compliment this facial wash. Now it has been a month, and these two combined is the best! My skin is baby soft and well nourished. My winter is going so smoothly with these two products. I have noticed my skin getting healthier and more glowy. All thanks to The Body Shop!

Makes my skin soft and smooth
3.5/5

PROS

Suitable for dry skin

Rich texture

Lathers well

Just a little amount required per use

Does not leave behind any residue

CONS

Strong fragrance

Expensive


I added this Vitamin E Facial Wash to my skincare routine one and a half week back. But with the results, I can’t help but write an opinion about it. This facial wash does not smell good like all the other TBS products I have used before. But it makes my skin soft and smooth. The thing I like the most about it is it takes just a little amount to form a good lather that covers my whole face and neck. The creamy texture feels so rich which is perfect for my extra dry skin.
