It’s my very first haul at Body Shop and i’m really excited about my purchase.One of my friends suggested to try their Vitamin E range.And I got myself a lip balm and illuminating moisture cream.I needed a highlighter and after seeing illuminating cream I thought of giving it a try.So lets review the illuminating moisture cream.
About The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream :
The Body Shop® difference:Modern life can steal your skin’s natural beauty. Exposure to dirt, smog, grease, smoke and other pollutants, as well as lack of sleep, can lead to the formation of free radicals that are detrimental to the health of your skin. A good night’s sleep is essential for cell renewal, which is why sleep deprivation and increasing levels of pollution both lead to dull skin. Our Vitamin E daily moisturizing cream combats damaging free radicals to protect your skin from its environment, while the light–reflecting mica minerals boost your skin’s radiance.
A daily moisturizing cream with light diffusing particles that helps to protect the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth with a luminous, healthy-looking glow.

My experience with The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream :
It comes in a tub like packaging with inner lid.I personally don’t like exposing the entire product to air while applying.The cream is really thick and baby pink in color, and has a light texture.
I was very excited to use it because it said it provides illumination due to mica particles. I decided to use it with foundation. It gave me a nice glow I didn’t have to use highlighter and also it doesn’t cause breakouts. I also used without foundation but I found it gives pinkish tinge to skin and It looks very prominent under sunlight.
But it is a good moisturizer and also contains Shea butter and I feel my skin was soft during harsh winter months. I didn’t like the fragrance though it smelled like bad odour. This cream lasts for 3 months and I’m really happy about it. This cream works well with any brand BB cream and it’s perfect for evening parties .
Well I won’t buy this product again because I personally expected some kind of good illumination and I don’t like pinkish tinge when applied directly without foundation.
What I like about The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream :
- Good moisturizer.
- Doesn’t cause break outs .
- Gives a Light weight feel.
What I don’t like about The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream :
- I wish it comes in self dispensing tube packaging.
- No fragrance.
- Gives pinkish tinge when applied directly. Either use a BB cream or Foundation.
Price:$13.88 for 50ml.
Availability:Body shop India.
Will I repurchase: No. I would rather buy Intense Moisturizer version of the Vitamin E for moisturizing.
