Today I’m going to talk about the Vitamin E Moisture Cream by The Body Shop. I saw recently that The Body Shop was bought in June by Natura from L’Oreal. I was delighted to see this. I had reservations promoting products under the L’Oreal umbrella as they test on animals in order to be able to sell in China. Specifically, The Body Shop products aren’t sold in China and are cruelty-free. This means that I would have used them if gifted, but I wouldn’t buy them because of L’Oreal. Now everything changed and I can buy The Body Shop products without a second though. Natura is a cruelty-free brand from Brazil. They aren’t selling in China and they stopped animal testing in 2001, according to their website.
I mentioned it briefly last month when I reviewed their Peppermint Intensive Cooling Foot Rescue cream. Now almost 2 months had passed since I started using it and I’m very happy with it.
Vitamin E Moisture Cream can be used for day or night time. I’ve used it mainly for night time as I have another day face cream. The texture of the Vitamin E is very nice, not oily at all and lightweight. The cream absorbs easily and it moisturizes the skin.
The colour of the cream is nice too and the smell is not too powerful. I use a bit more than I used before with other creams that were more oily. Even so, a 50ml cream is enough for 3 months for me, used once a day, in the evenings. I think it’s great value for money.
The downside, for me, is that the container is made of plastic. For a cream that is £13 for 50ml and £19 for 100ml, I think the container feels a bit cheap. This wouldn’t put me off from buying it though.
Would I buy it? Yes. As you can notice in the picture, I still have a few Vitamin E Moisture Cream jars, but I would buy it when I finish them.
