Where I got it: I got it from my local The Body Shop for $39.50. I haven’t bought a moisturiser from The Body Shop in a while and I usually get products from their Tea Tree Range, I haven’t bought anything from their Vitamin E range before because it gives me an impression this range is for dry skin and it would be too oily or greasy for my combination skin.
What I got: This is a 50ml tub The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet. This refreshing and mattifying facial moisturiser with aquasphere technology, drenches skin with moisture for all day hydration. Leaving the skin feeling cooler and softer. Now formulated with plumping hyaluronic acid, wheatgerm oil and vitamin E.
- Suitable for all skin types
- With vitamin E
- Improved formula, bio-fermented hyaluronic acid from Pomacle, France
- With Community Trade soya oil from Brazil
- With aqua-sphere technology
- Facial moisturiser
- 24h hydration
- Mattifying finish
- Cooling formula
How I find it: This sorbet cream has a very interesting texture that is hydrating, cooling and mattifying at the same time. From the jar, the gel-cream looks like it has tiny little lumps in it, almost like white lumps. The surface of the product isn’t glossy, but semi-matte. I use a spatula to pick up the product and apply onto my face with fingertips. This gel-cream glides on smoothly and is absorbed quickly leaving a semi-matte finish on the skin. However, that mattifying effect doesn’t last very long but the skin is hydrated.
