This Vitamin E overnight serum-in-oil smells delicious. It’s exactly the type of smell you would want to load your face up with behind going to bed.

It’s supposed to leave your skin feeling and looking fresh the next day. It also prevents your skin from ageing, removes age spots and scarring and is great for dry skin.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum

The Body Shop offers a wide range of skincare products, including Vitamin E Oil for nourishing and moisturising the skin.

I wanted to try this product as I have really dry skin and I’m getting a few lines here and there. Because I’m almost 30. So I purchased the Body Shop Vitamin E Serum to address dry skin concerns.

Almost 30, but still spotty. Okay, I’m going to prevent myself from going into a long rant here about how life isn’t fair and how come I went through all my teen years spot free and TAKE A LOOK AT ME NOW.

So yeah, vitamin E is supposed to help heal scars and a lot of the blemishes around my skin are scars. I was really hoping using this would help to remove the appearance of them as it makes me feel terrible about myself.

I’ve been using this for a few weeks now, not every night, but about 2-3 times per week. It really is good and hydrating, although I think it has been giving me spots around my normal problem areas, so I’ve just been using it on my forehead, around my eyes and cheeks and avoiding the areas where I get spots, like my nose, chin and around my mouth.

That disappoints me because I was wanting to use it in that area specifically!

I do enjoy the packaging though, it’s in this glass-pumpy-tube-thing. Wait – what’s the technical word for this?

Okay, I found it – it’s called a glass pipette bottle. That sounds better than glass-pumpy-tube-thing.

The dropper sucks up 2-3 drops and then you dispense it on your face. You only need 1 or 2 drops.

So this product is okay, but I’m a little disappointed that it caused me to have spots around the areas and I wanted to fade some markings! I’d say give this a go if you’re over your spotty skin stage. If you’re still going through puberty, like me, then it might be one to avoid. Body Shop Vitamin E Oil is great for dry skin, but not not spot prone skin.

Do you know of any good products that might help reduce scarring, but not cause more spots?

  1. Love the body shop- too bad the product didn’t work as well as advertised though. Apparently bio oil is supposed to be really good for scarring xx Yuki

      1. You could try Malissa KISS Skincare’s White Me Up. It’s a night cream and it’s a little on the pricey side but great for sensitive skin that easily breaks out. Prolonged use helps to balance out uneven skin tones and fade some scars a little 🙂

  2. I’ve always wanted to try Vitamin e products, but my skin is sooooo spot prone, and I know that I would have your problem of it causing breakouts. You should try products with salicylic acid in, it will help with your spots as well – it’s done my skin wonders!

  3. Too bad it didn’t work the way you hoped, it’s always hard to find something that benefits the skin everywhere. I know the struggle!

  4. I have this product and at first I liked it, but then I got a sample of the Khiels Serum and I realised how much better that one was! It just sunk into my skin and I really didn’t even need to moisturise after. But I felt like this one just sits on top of your skin? But it is a lot cheaper than alternatives! xx

  5. Vitamin E is so good for rehydrating skin and for scars. I have only ever seen the most spray in Bodyshop didn’t realise they did this product. Shame that it hasn’t worked on spots probably to rich. The best thing I have found for spots is clinque anti blemish foaming mouse works a treat Lucy x

  6. It is the worst when you get rid of spots, have to deal with scarring then get more spots from trying to do that! You could try lemon and a bit of sugar. Or Aloe vera gel. I use a jojoba oil each night which doesn’t break you out and I’m sure my apple cider vinegar toner is helping with scarring too. To be honest, I’m just letting time take its course!

  7. I bloody love this stuff, what a shame it’s not so good for you as it’s a total bargain as well! x

  8. i’ve been wanting to try this, but now i’m not too sure, haha. some people seem to think it’s amazing, so maybe i’ll just need to see for myself! xx

    1. It does seem pretty hit and miss. Body shop will give you a sample if you ask then you can try it for yourself.

  9. I kind of wanted to try this but I’ve kind of been put off now haha! I can break out so easily from serums and oils it’s probably just not worth the risk for me.

  10. I love the Body Shop, it’s really annoying when products break you out, shame this didn’t work for you
