The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

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.

  • With vitamin E

  • 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.

Overall: Very nice gel-cream moisturiser that hydrates the skin. This sorbet cream is much lighter than the rest of the products in the Vitamin E range so I love it heaps. It almost feels and gives the impression of Clinique’s Moisture Surge products. I can use this in the morning or at night because it just feels so fresh and non-greasy. I can easily layer this with another moisturiser on top because of how light-weight this is and it doesn’t interfere with other products. Definitely a good moisturise to have if you are looking for something hydrating especially for summer time.
