The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream

I usually refrain from posting about skin care a lot, because it is something that seriously is different for everyone. My cleanser might break you out, your moisturiser might make my skin go flaky. But for someone with the same kind of skin as me (combination but mainly dry) this could work wonders for you. It claims to be for all skin types, so it might even work for sensitive/oily people.

 Pretty standard pink plastic tub, won't look awful on your dresser!

I used to just throw on an extra bit of moisturiser at night, even though I knew my skin was dry. It was just less hassle. But my skin suffered so I thought I'd give it a bit of a helping hand. I'd heard fabulous things about The Body Shop's Vitamin E range, which included a night cream. So away I skipped to pick it up.

Can I say that it's thick but feels light on your skin? Am I contradicting myself? Well I'm saying it.

I'm not lying when I say I could feel the effects the next morning. My skin just felt smoother & more hydrated. Now sadly I'm not faced by the same amazement every morning, but that's just because the effects are lasting. If I do forget to bring it with me for a few days, etc, my skin doesn't regress to its shoddy state, but after starting to re-use it, I can tell that it was needed.

It's not extremely thick, but I do always use thick moisturisers. It feels quite light for a night cream, & non greasy for sure. I may have used it once or twice in the morning when I didn't need to do my make up straight away.. If you're in the market for a new night cream, & could do with some nourishment, it's definitely a contender. You get 50ml for about €16, which isn't the worst!

Do you use an extra night cream?

I'm also counting my exams down by my blog posts. When this publishes, I will have one exam done, & will probably still be awake studying for today's. No-body said college would be like this.

  1. Love the sounds of this, I know exactly what you mean when you say it's thick but feels light- perfect night cream combination! I haven't tried this range but it sounds great, I always use a night cream now otherwise my makeup starts looking flaky and dry the next day even if I moisturise really well in the morning x

  3. I also know what you mean, it sounds a lot like the Garnier one for Dry skin, the little one in the pink tube - I use that at night & since I've started using the extra cream, no dry patches on the side of my nose in the morning! It's definitely worth using an extra product at night. x

    I've tagged you in a 'this or that' post on my blog if you'd like to look at it? Although I'm pretty sure you're going to be busy for the next few weeks.

  5. I love Body Shop skincare, I use the Aloe Day and Night creams and love them for my sensitive/dry/normal skin! I have the Vitamin E moisture mask and use this to quench my skin when it's particularly dry. I agree with youd description "thick but light on the skin" - the moisture mask is the same. It's lovely and rich but not at all heavy and doesn't make the skin feel clogged. X
