• The Body Shop | Vitamin E Aqua boost Essence Lotion

    No matter what skincare products I use I tend to always find myself seeking things out at The Body Shop.  I have long loved their Vitamin E range and while walking by a store I spotted the new Vitamin E Aqua boost Essence Lotion in the window...so naturally I had to go into the store.

    Essence Lotions are very popular in the Korean beauty market and I have noticed that slowly more and more brands are starting to introduce this into their product offerings.  So if like me you wondered what an Essence actually is, quite simply put, it is basically a light-weight serum that is slightly less potent than a traditional serum.  Essence products contain active ingredients that are meant to be used after you've cleansed your skin, similar to how you would use a serum. The purpose of them is to add another light layer of hydration to your skin in a way that you won't necessary overdue it with products on your skin.  After applying an essence you then follow up with a serum and your normal moisturiser.

    The Vitamin E Aqua boost Essence Lotion is very light in consistency and quite runny.  It comes in a bottle that allows you to easily control the amount you use.  After applying it to cleansed skin, my skin immediately feels moisturised and the products absorbs so quickly.  My skin feels soft and not greasy at all after using it. What is great about this is that you start off with a surface that feels as if there is nothing there so you don't feel as if you have too many products on your skin when you follow it with other products.

    The essence lotion contains antioxidants to protect your skin from free radicals as well as biofermented Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate your skin.  In winter time, I do need extra hydration and find that including this in my skin care routine has definitely helped get much needed extra moisture into my skin.  A bottle costs only R160 for 100ml which is such a great value for money. I love this so much that I use it across my entire face, neck and chest area. A little goes a long way so I don't mind using a bit more.

    I seriously love that The Body Shop continues to grow their Vitamin E range in ways that are exciting and still affordable.  (Click here to view past reviews I have done on The Body Shop products)

    1. I had seen this over the weekend and had wondered what it was all about. My skin loves this range so I definitely think I should look into this new product especially as you said it does help add a bit more moisture to the skin in winter.

      Thanks for another awesome review!
