In stores now, the Body Shop’s vitamin E special edition skin care collection has novel takes on two wonderful favourites plus a new release.
The new range has the added bonus of wheatgerm oil, which is the highest source of vitamin E found in nature. The body doesn’t produce vitamin E, but it helps protect the skin and gets rid of free radicals.
We’ve been in love with the Body Shop’s Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet (NZ$37·50 for 50 ml), which was perfect for the summer: it hydrates and refreshes and the package almost felt like a small ice-cream tub. The Body Shop says there are two million moisture-releasing aquaspheres in each jar; we just know it feels great on the skin and we’re happy to see its return this winter. It offers 24-hour hydration for the skin.
Along similar lines is the vitamin E moisture cream, with the same floral scent. It’s not as fruity as some of the Body Shop’s other releases, but there’s a sense of substance when you open the jar. However, when applied, it’s light and fresh, and works particularly well. The bonus this season: the jar is now a larger 100 ml, and retails for NZ$45, for a limited time.
The brand-new offering from the Body Shop is the Vitamin E Eyes Cube (we love the pun), a stick which you apply to the eye area to help you feel refreshed. It feels very cool on the skin when applied, and the effect lasts very long, helping with fatigue. It’s been one of our favourites in our tests and retails for NZ$34·95.
