The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream – Review

I got it on a whim a few months ago. It says it’s suitable for all skin types – I sort of disagree with that.

Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream
This rich night cream replenishes moisture levels while you sleep.

My thoughts
Anyone living in Karachi would know that we get summers almost throughout the year. The winter months aren’t very cold. Moreover, it’s pretty much humid all the time. I have a combination skin type and my skin tussles between dry patches and an oily T-zone. My first impression about the product was that it’s a bit too heavier for my skin and I feared it might break me out as well. But then I figured out that if I apply too much, it’s definitely going to feel very sticky. So now, I just take a tiny amount of the product and massage on my face. Trust me, a little goes a long way in this case.

Soon after applying this, my skin feels baby soft and I love the mild scent it has. I like that it has a gel-like consistency and melts into my skin in no time. I don’t use it every night since like I said, it's heavier. I apply it every alternate night. I basically like rubbing it on my damp skin before I hit the sack. And no, It hasn’t broken me out yet.

If you have a dry skin type, you’re probably gonna love it. But if you live in a place that’s mostly hot and humid all year round and got a skin type like mine, I suggest passing up on this one and trying something else – perhaps another TBS cream that is specifically formulated for combination skin. Don’t get me wrong, I like this cream and what it does to my skin in the cooler months. Having said that, I would really like to try something that would work for me in warmer times of the year.

You might like it if…
  • You have a dry/normal skin type
  • Your skin struggles with dry patches
  • It makes your skin baby soft
  • You work tiny amount of product into your skin
You might not like it if…
  • You have a combination/oily skin type
  • You slather too much 
  • You think it's pricey
