Hello to all my IBJ readers
Many of you must know that I am blessed with dry – combination – sensitive skin and often god gift me dry rashes and flaky skin around my cheeks and forehead. It was so severe that I even suffered from dehydration and discolouration. Today I decided to review one of my winter’s skincare heroes.

My Experience with ‘The Body Shop VIT-E Nourishing Night Cream’:
After Lush Angels on Bare skin (cleanser) this is another skincare hero, my HG product. I am very skeptic about applying anything randomly especially when it comes to skincare. Not many product suits my sensitive skin. This particular product work like magic on my dry flaky pastry type skin 😛 It claims to be all skin type but I am sure it’s not for oily-combination skin, The Body Shop must change the tag line.
The packaging is pretty pink 50ml tub and the night cream is soft baby pink colour. The consistency of the cream is super thick and very moisturizing. But hey, all night creams are like that especially when it comes for dry skin. But relatively, I feel this one is less sticky, and light. Gives cushiony texture on skin. I need a pea size amount for my entire face and neck. Therefore, one tube will last you 3 months, which is why I feel the price is justified. I had been using this since November’13 and I can see vast difference in my skin. My skin looks moisturized, soft and supple every morning. I not lying when I say I could see some glowing effects every morning…my skin feel more hydrated and smoother. Flaky days –Bye Bye!! 😀 I will give 2 thumbs-up for TBS night cream. A Must have for dry-sensitive ladies!
What I love about ‘The Body Shop VIT-E Nourishing Night Cream’:
- Very effective on Dry-Combination-sensitive skin.
- The thick texture, but feel light on skin.
- Need pea size for all over face and neck.
- Last you almost for 3months or even more.
- Add glow to dry dull skin, make it healthy and moisturized.
- Make skin smoother, soft and hydrated.
- Contain wheat germ oil, cocoa butter.
What I hate about ‘The Body Shop VIT-E Nourishing Night Cream’:
- Sometimes the price of course.
- So many chemical :O – Groups of Parabens, Alcohols, fragnances L I always thought TBS is a natural brand L
Of course yes! I am going to restock it again. Although it contains so many chemicals but then the way it helped my skin in bad phase is recommendable. Unless I get something better than this I will stick to TBS night cream.
