Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet



Another day, another product from The Body Shop...are things getting a little repetitive around here? Hopefully not as I'm sure you all love TBS's wonderful products as much as I do. Anyways, I picked this up in a recent haul - link- and so far have been loving it so I thought I'd give it a little review.

Let me start by telling you that this is probably the best hydrating face cream I have ever used. After cleansing it was quite an experience to pop this on my face. I definitely wasn't expecting the cooling, soothing, and thirst quenching effect that it had on my skin. If I had to describe this I would say it is literally like a drink for your skin. Whats more is that it glides on like a dream and leaves absolutely no residue unlike most normal moisturizers. You can literally feel it sink under layers of skin straight away and the gel like texture means it does not in anyway interfere with the application of make up. In fact I would say it kind of enhances it as I have been using this under my make up without a primer for a few weeks, and it more or less does the same job that a hydrating primer would. 

I tend to apply make up pretty early on in the day as I'm normally a really busy person so my day is either packed full of work, blogging or something else just as time consuming. After a whole day I found this managed to keep my make up looking fresh which isn't always easy when you wear a heavy duty matte foundation. I found that where my T zone is normally a shiny mess halfway through the day it actually stayed pretty matte and shine free. 

This is one of those rare products that has completely blown me away! Keeps you looking matte, but yet still fresh, hydrates the skin but yet keeps oil at bay? This is definitely a winner. Huge thank you to The Body Shop for exceeding expectations yet again!

Purchase this online here.

What do you guys think of this product? Is it something you would buy?

  6. Wanna buy this, for some reason the texture and feel reminded me of the Clinique Moisture surge but for less than half the price. Great review certainly going to pick this up although with it having no SPF it might be a night time….or a cream before my SPF xx

  7. Thanks for the review Lisa. As I'm thinking whether to buy the hydraluronic moisture gel from Indeed Lab or buy this one from Bodyshop. This post makes me decide I should give TBS a try :)

  8. I've been needing a new face moisturizer, and I do love the fact that this is loaded with Vitamin E (so good for your skin) I think I'll definitely have to give this a go! Thanks!
