The Body Shop Vitamin E Cleanser Review

File_002

Don’t we spend hours and hours to get a smoother and softer looking skin? Well, I do!! My skin is always just so dry be it summers or winters. So, I like to take extra care to get rid of dry skin and get a smooth and lively looking skin.

I have been using this cleanser for few weeks now and I really like it. I love using cleansing milk and cleansing creams on my skin because they give me a hydrated and soft looking skin without taking the moisture away. The texture of this cleanser is very similar to cleansing milk. It’s not too thick nor like a liquid consistency. I like to apply this with my hands on my face and massage for few seconds and wipe off using a cotton ball or cotton pad. I like to use mainly during morning because it’s a very gentle cleanser followed by The Body Shop Vitamin E toner. Vitamin E is known to hydrate and clear your skin and I do believe this has worked for me. When I am wearing full makeup I do like to double cleanse my face. So, first I use my Garnier Micellar Water which removes all the makeup followed by this cleanser. This doesn’t leave any oily or sticky residue. I love this cleanser as it’s very gentle and makes my skin look fresh and soft.

The packaging comes in a plastic pink peach bottle with a tight cap and I love how it looks. Now, this cleanser comes with totally different packaging. This cleanser does have little fragrance in it but that doesn’t bother me much.

The Body Shop Aloe Vera Protective Restoring Mask Review

TBS Aloe Vera Mask

Hey loves,

This review is so overdue. Today I am here to talk about TBS popular product “Aloe Vera Protective Restoring Mask” which I picked few months back.  Lured by some awesome deals which TBS offers I picked up one of this in their buy 3 get 3 free deals.

My Review:

I picked up this product because of the redness on my face and sensitive skin due to heat and sunlight. Summers are bad where I live so I grabbed this one because it’s a aloe vera mask which will soothe and calm my skin. The first time I used I applied this mask and left for 20-30 mins to dry and then wiped of using a cotton pad. My skin felt so smooth and soft as I have very dry skin as well. I was amazed as to how my skin felt throughout the day after applying this mask. My skin didn’t feel dry and flaky and also redness was gone and hence was left with smooth and hydrated skin. The next time I used I applied this mask at night and I woke up with smooth supple and plumped skin. I was totally amazed on how it worked at night. And since then I have been using at night post cleansing and after applying this mask I don’t apply any apply moisturizer because after wiping this mask off my skin feels little greasy which is good for dry skin so I skip moisturizer. A little goes long way and the formula is neither too thick nor thin and no scent at all which is great.  Also, when I am out in the sun the whole day I like to use this mask to calm and smoothen my skin. Not that my dry skin as gone by using this but whenever I use my skin fees smooth and hydrated which  I really like and hence enjoy using this mask.

TBS Aloe Vera Protective Mask

Talking about packaging, it comes in a tub jar with a tight screw lid. It can be unhygienic and also messy to just put your hands in the jar and use the mask. I like to use a brush to apply this mask.

I would recommend it to almost anybody except those with very oily skin. Those with normal or combination skin could use it as a mask for a boost of hydration or to moisturize dry spots during colder months, while people with dry skin (like me) can  use it all the year round.

TBS Aloe Vera Mask

Pros:

  • Hydrating mask
  • Works great as night moisturizer
  • Leaves skin smooth and soft
  • Works well for dry skin
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-free
  • No scent
  • Little product goes long way

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Packaging is little messy

Price: $23

My Review:

Toners are a must for everyday skin care regime. A toner should be used at least twice a day. I like to use every morning and night. Recently, I came across The Body Shop Vitamin E Toner and so far I love it. It hydrates my dry skin and makes it feel smooth. I use this toner every morning after shower and at night post cleansing. It is so gentle and refreshing. My skin doesn’t feel dry after applying this. It definitely adds more moisture to my skin leaving it feeling less dry.I also like to use this toner as after lotion on my upper lip post waxing. The redness around my upper lip which causes by waxing vanishes within few minutes once I use this toner. It really soothes and calms my skin.

The consistency of this toner is little thick than water. It feels like a gel oil toner but once applied the toner completely gets absorbed into your skin which makes skin more hydrating and fresh.

There is very little fragrance and it smells more like a baby lotion but it disappears within few minutes.

Lastly, about the packaging it comes in a plastic bottle with a tight cap but still looks nice. I like to put this toner in my small spray bottle and just spritz all over my face. I also carry this in my handbag  at times when I am out in sun. I just spray little bit of product all over the face to get a healthy looking skin and feel fresh throughout the day.

  • Extremly hydrating
  • Makes skin smooth
  • Refreshing toner
  • Antioxidant benefits
  • Vegan

My Review:

I have combination skin but more on dry side. I use this twice in a week and I love the glow that it gives me. It’s a very mild scrub which contains honey and oats. Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants. It is great for slowing down aging. It also boost your complexion is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow while Oats removes the dead cells, irritation, and redness, leaving a soft, moist skin.

To start with, first I cleanse my face and then spread this mask all over my face until it is opaque. I leave it for 15 minutes. It does not dry completely so before rinsing my face I gently massage my face in circular motions to exfoliate the skin with the oats. Lastly, I wipe off with a face. Voila!! say hello to beautiful, soft skin!

It helps to restore the moisture and remove impurities. I totally love how my skin feels after I use this product.

Here is a setback! When you apply, it really stings a lot for a while. The sting settles to a tingling sensation after a while and then it’s totally gone

It has a strong honey-oat smell. It comes in a tub with a screw lid and  I am already planning on what I could do with the empty container, once the scrub is over 😛

Pros:

  • All-in-one, easy to use.
  • A little goes a long way (doesn’t dry off).
  • Makes skin soft
  • Restores and moisturizes skin
  • Totally cost efficient.

Cons:

  • Smell might seem overpowering.
  • Stinging feeling
