Treat Mum Like A Queen With Vitamin E
This is definitely the last Mother’s Day post I do this year (I promise). Last Friday as I was having a lazy stroll around North London I walked past the ‘Treat Mum Like A Queen’ poster, and I had to share it with you all as it really did put a smile on my face after a very long week of work. I hope the actual Queen has been sent one of these limited edition sets (wouldn’t you like to see a queen selfie with cucumbers on her eyes?). As with everything The Body Shop do this campaign was fun, pink and everything a mum gift should be.
This Mother’s Day The Body Shop have launched a limited Edition Vitamin E range. Being a total fan of the Vitamin E range I didn’t need convincing, limited edition packaging or not I will always have some vitamin E stocked up on my shelf. The Vitamin E range first launched in 1977 and standing the test of time it has been a long time favourite of its users protecting their skin against the daily pollution that faces us all. My favourite item from the original range has always been the Vitamin E oil (which after speaking to one of The Bosy Shop’s skin consultants I later discovered had been discontinued). After a few silent screams – panic over, the original vitamin E oil has been replaced with the new Overnight Serum in Oil. Below is my review of some old and new products from the Limited Edition Vitamin E range.
The Overnight Serum in Oil is lighter and fresher smell than its predecessor, providing all the same benefits of an oil but with a non greasy formula. With it’s fast absorbing formula you dont have to worry about the serum/oil ruining your pillows. The packaging recommends 8 hours of beauty sleep for the skin. I envy anyone who gets eight hours of sleep during the week as I for one don’t. Whether its 6, 7, or eight hours the serum in oil still boosts the skin. If your not a fan of serum/ oils then why not try out The Vitamin E night Cream (which is super thick and luxurious) or the Bouncing Sleep Mask. I tend to rotate between all three on different days depending on how my skin is that day.
The Vitamin E Eyes Cube is a totally new product to me, and i’m mentally kicking myself now as I type this as i’m not quite sure if the cube existed before the new packaging or not. Either way it’s here now and something that I needed two month’s ago when the eczema/ dry skin was at it’s peak. Rubbing Vitamin E oil and then applying makeup over the top was a bit of a slippery game and the eye cube would have made my life a lot easier. The Eye cube is very lightweight, easy to apply and has a cooling element when applying to the skin. It’s also so small (a bit like a chunky lipstick) that it it easy to store or lose in your handbag. I know the cube is meant for the eye area but I have a feeling that i’m going to be using on other dry patches on my face.
The Vitamin E Moisture cream definitely sells itself. It’s light and hydrating and suitable for all skin types. I always have a pot of Vitamin E cream and I find that I use it more in the summer months and when I’m on holiday. Depending on how my skin is in winter I may need something a bit more thicker. But as with all beauty products what suits my skin may not suit yours but one to give a go!
