Body Shop bits

I hold my hands up and admit that I don’t often shop in The Body Shop, I’m more of a ‘dash into Boots’ kinda girl, when I need toiletries. But I found myself wondering into The Body Shop last week when I was in Nottingham and I picked up some items which I thought I would give a go and after trying them out I thought I would review them. 

I bought three items (3 for 2 offer on so how could I say no?!) two different kinds of face moisturisers, the Face Mist and the Aqua Boost Sorbet as well as a BB cream, all from the Vitamin E range, which I was very excited to try!

Vitamin E Face Mist   

I had been looking for a face mist for quite a while, mainly to put on before and after I put my makeup to hydrate my skin and to help my makeup set. I have very sensitive skin, so trying new products often comes at a bit of a risk as some often don’t agree with my skin. With that in mind, I have been very happy with the results from this moisturiser. The face mist from The Body Shop is cooling and resfreshing and makes my skin feel great after application. I didn’t get any aggravation from this product which was a relief and my skin felt revitalised and fresh. In terms of its benefits as a setting spray, I could see that my makeup set quicker, however I wasn’t convinced that it made my make up last any longer, so I’m not as fond of this product in terms of a setting spray, however really rate it as a moisturiser, plus it’s really quick and easy to apply which is great!

Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

The sales assistant that I spoke to when I was in The Body Shop, gave me a tip when storing this product. She told me to keep the sorbet in the fridge so that its cold when you apply it.. and what a difference it makes! Applying this cold sorbet to puffy bags under my eyes was such a relief. I have also tried the product when it hasn’t been in the fridge, it still works well, however I personally prefer the cooling sensation the sorbet provides when it has been in the fridge. As well as the skin under my eyes, I apply the sorbet to my cheeks, chin and forehead and it seems to really do the job! Its so soothing and refreshing and I really have fallen in love with this product. Simple packaging and it smells divine.. all things which make me love it even more! Thumbs up from me Body Shop!

Vitamin E Cool BB Cream

This was my least favourite product of the three. I wouldn’t often choose a BB cream, I have in the past, but i don’t often by them, however I was feeling adventurous so thought I would try it out. Unfortunately, I wasn’t that impressed with the product. The coverage, lasting power or overall look of this BB cream weren’t anything special. I didn’t feel that it was good as others I have tried. I will say that this product is perfect if you want a thin coverage and a more natural look, but to get the medium level of coverage that I wanted, I had to apply a lot more products on top, which isn’t really what I wanted to have to do. If I’m honest, I don’t think I will be repurchasing this product.Photo 25-08-2014 17 50 56
