The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Cream

I've never really had a go to moisturiser - one that I just have to repurchase over and over. When I run out of one, I tend to just grab the next product that catches my attention. However, lately my skin has become a lot more oily than usual, and my current stash just isn't cutting it anymore. On my hunt for a less rich, more balancing moisturiser, I discovered Cosmetic Lad by Lush, and I'm pretty sure that I've finally found 'the one' in terms of balancing my skin and keeping the grease at bay. Unfortunately, however, the sample I had ran out more quickly than I would have liked, and, until I can make my way to a Lush store, I have to make do with something else. Lucky for me, one of the amazing products in my #OxMeet stash was The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream*. Originally intended to be an interim product, I'm actually super impressed with how good it's making my skin look! Not so great at tackling the oil, I feel like this will be the perfect product for me once my oil slick of a t-zone has returned to normal.

The Body Shop's bestselling moisturiser, it applies really lightly, almost to a watery consistency, and absorbs into the skin almost instantly. This is a godsend for my early morning starts, as I don't really have the time to sit around, leisurely waiting for my skincare to settle before I start slapping on my daily make-up. I absolutely love the way my skin looks and feels after using it - I almost glow. I think it might be the antioxidants of the Vitamin E that are giving me the supermodel sheen that I've been trying to perfect for years Whatever it is, it's amazing! As I stated before, its a little much whilst my oil levels are creeping up, but when they calm down, I'll be happily dipping into my little pot of vitamin goodness all the live long day. The only thing that it's lacking is SPF, which is so important to me, but hey, I guess you can't have it all, right? I'm so impressed with this moisturiser for creating the perfect base for the dewy complexion I crave. I'm sure it won't be long before I'm ducking into The Body Shop to get my mitts on the rest of the Vitamin E range - Illuminating Moisture Cream, I'm looking at you!

  2. It's so good! And I didn't realise how popular it was until I started looking into it for this post. It's a bit of a cult product, it seems! Xx
