We all hear that antioxidants are good for your body and skin – but why? Vitamin E is an antioxidant that (basically) repairs and protects your skin. Vitamin E is known for being great on scars because of it’s reparative qualities.
I am a huge fan of The Body Shop and the first products I tried from their skincare line are the Aloe Toner and Vitamin C Face Wash, both of which I love. A little over a year ago I tried my first Vitamin E product, the Moisture Serum, and slowly started introducing more of these products into my daily routine. Let’s talk details:
Hand and Nail Treatment: I absolutely love this hand cream. It is very hydrating but unlike a lot of super hydrating hand creams, this one isn’t greasy. As someone with thin nails, I also appreciate that this hand cream is a nail treatment too.
Eye Cream: Eye cream is kind of tricky because you don’t know if it worked until a lot later in life! It’s very light and sits well under makeup. This eye cream isn’t a miracle worker but it also isn’t bad. This is my second or third tube, overall, would recommend.
Moisture Serum: Holy Grail. When I finished my first bottle of this, I switched to a caudalie serum just to switch things up. My mistake. Trying something I didn’t like really made me focus on what I do like about this serum. It is very cooling and is like a very thin gel. It is super moisturizing and makes a great base for BB creams, but also superchargers the moisture in your skin at night. I don’t have any complaints about this serum and it might be my favorite product from this line.
Nourishing Night Cream: I really like this night cream. It has a very silky texture and is softer than most creams. To me, the word “cream” makes me think thick and buttery, but this is very light. It’s a nice night cream, but isn’t revolutionary. I think it’s good but did buy a new one when this finished up, just because I like trying new products. If you want something basic though, I think this is very good.
Face Mist: For starters, if you don’t like rose scented products, you won’t like this. That aside, this mist is really nice. I use it as a perk-me-up and also to add some dew back to my skin after a lot of powder. While this is nice, I think I’ll go back to my elf Mist & Set after this one is gone. It’s cheaper and to me does the same job.
That’s it! I think this is a great line from The Body Shop. What’s your favorite Body Shop product? Let me know!
