Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

Hey Ladies! I have YET another review for you. I actually have them all lined up! I will be doing a review on Reviva Labs products next week and Jafra Cosmetics a little bit after that and i have two swaps coming in!!

What they say: The Body Shop® difference: Our Vitamin E Cream works with any skin type. No wonder it’s one of our best-selling products worldwide. Because your skin is constantly being bombarded with environmental aggressors, such as the sun, pollution and smoke, it is important that it is defended every day. Free radicals can react with the proteins in the cell’s collagen and lipid membrane, resulting in loss of elasticity, slackness, lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant power of vitamin E in this moisture cream helps prevent premature aging and damage from free radicals when used as part of your daily skin care regime, protecting your skin’s future. For more effective, longer-lasting hydration, use our Vitamin E Moisture Serum first.

Ingredients: Water, Isopropyl Palmitate, Sorbitol, Lanolin, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Esters, Steareth-2, PEG 100 Stearate, Ceresin, Triethanolamine, Tocopheryl Acetate, Steareth-20, Carbomer, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Red 4.

 I got three travel sizes from a swap. I still have 2 more. 

Smell/Texture:  It has a really watery texture. It smells nice, fresh. Because of the watery texture, I was worried that it wouldn't be too moisturizing. 

Packaging: It is in a pink plastic jar with a black top. Standard screw top. Nothing more. 

Effectiveness: I have a lot of problems with this. So i have really really dry skin. My left undereye lid is so dry right now, that it flakes. It's really gross. It says that this is good for all skin types. Well, its not. It's really watery so it's not really moisturizing. It doesn't give too much moisture at all to my very dry skin. By like 2 hours after application, my eyelid starts flaking again. When i work out, the sweat STINGS my skin because of the dryness. 

Price: 1.7 oz 16 dollars. It's kinda expensive. 
Recommended: Only to people with normal to oily skin. To people of dry skin? No. Also, I have 2 more travel sized BN jars. Email me if you want them!
