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?
