Who doesn’t know about The Body Shop products, right? If there is any sale, I rush to the nearest store all the time. The thing that made me love TBS so much is the fruity fragrance in almost every product I have used. When I saw this Vitamin E Moisture Cream, even before knowing what it is made for, I was drawn to it by its baby pink packaging.

Once I realized what it is for, I had to get it because it was just the thing I was looking for – a deep moisturizer for the harsh winter. My skin is combination during summer and dry in winters.

So, now that “winter is here,” this moisturizer was a perfect option. It has been three weeks since I have started using it. For my first use, I didn’t know how much quantity to use. So I took quite a lot, and that made my skin very greasy. My heart almost broke. But the next day I took a little smaller quantity, and it worked so well. Since then, I just take a small amount, and that itself is enough to cover my whole face and neck.

So these three weeks have been such a lovely experience with The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream. It makes my skin moist in the right way, does not make my skin greasy and it feels so soft. I haven’t had any breakouts as well (phew!).

And yes! The smell! I wish I can say something positive about it since I love TBS mostly because of it. But unfortunately, this particular cream does not share the same trait like the ones I love. And though the packaging is pretty, having to scoop it with my finger all the time feels unhygienic.

PROS

Non-greasy

Improves skin’s health

Quickly absorbed

Light

Provides deep moisturization

CONS

No SPF


I have been using this Vitamin E Moisture Cream at night for the past one month, and I’m telling you, the way my skin wakes up in the morning is amazing. It provides the perfect amount of moisture, doesn't feel sticky when I go to bed and even when I roll onto my pillow.

I have very dry skin in winter, but I use it just like my night cream because it does not have SPF. And with dryness, my skin is sensitive too. So I need every bit of sun protection there is.

I will be continuing the same routine for the summer as well because happy skin equals to happy me.

PROS

None

CONS

Not for oily skin

Expensive

Does not get absorbed well


I was so excited when I got this, but I was quite surprised to realize that it does not get absorbed well into the skin. The oiliness on my face becomes more prominent, especially on my nose. I am not happy with it. My heart breaks for the amount I paid for it. I think it works better for dry to normal skin.

4.8/5

PROS

A little goes a long way

Long-lasting effects

Provides intense hydration

Mild smell

Makes the skin soft and supple

CONS

Tub packaging


The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream has been my go-to moisturizer since last year for winter. Even for this winter, I bought a tub. I just take a tiny amount, and it covers all my face. The moisture it provides is everything for my dry skin.

On application, my skin feels moist and plump throughout the day. My skin never feels dull or dehydrated. No wonder it is one of the world’s best-selling moisturizers!

This cream from The Body Shop can be used throughout the year. It is mild and light but moisturizes richly with Vitamin E. However, during summers, oily skin types can skip it as it might be slightly heavy.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream is suitable for all skin types. The formulation is light and mild on the skin. It does not cure acne per se but does not promote it either.
