A few years ago I reviewed The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream and noted that it quickly became a firm favourite. This is still the case but I do think it is important to revisit loved or even loathed products every now and then to see how things change. Luckily I still enjoy The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream and unlike my first review way back when I have learned a little about why it works too.
If thick eye creams are not something you enjoy or perhaps need I would urge you to try out The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream as it is super light weight but gently nourishes the under eye area. The great thing about it is the texture is not greasy in the slightest so you can apply make-up over the top without it creasing or caking. It moisturises, de-puffs the skin and cools in one quick step. I like to keep a tube on my desk for when I'm working on the computer and one in my bathroom for morning use (if this contained SPF it would be my dream eye cream). I know this is slightly gross (okay a lot) but sometimes I wake up in the morning with eye cream crust. Not sleep but eye cream that hasn't sunk into my skin. Glorious I know but you will be happy to know that The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream doesn't do this. It fully sinks into my skin regardless of what time of day I apply it. I will be truthful and say that I don't think this will do much for mature skins but for younger complexions looking to branch out and begin using an eye cream this is the perfect starting point.
So what does The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream contain? Vitamin E (of course) which is an antioxidant that will help to protect and repair the skin.To ensure that the formulation is light but extra nourishing and moisturising in one step The Body Shop have relied on shea butter and lastly we have rose hip oil which is derived from roses and contains vitamin A, vitamin C and the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. This oil can promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation along with eradicating dark spots and is of course moisturising making it a stellar ingredient. It is hard to believe an eye cream that costs a mere £10 can do so much but it really does. As I said I wouldn't recommend it for those who want to ward off father time but everything else it gets 10/10!
