The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream | ReviewThursday, June 18, 2015
Since becoming pregnant and being a new mum I have switched from my usual foundations to tinted moisturisers or BB creams due to my skin been even more dry than usual and not wanting the heavy feeling of a thick foundation. The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Creme* has definitely been one I've been reaching for most days.
It has a lovely thick creamy consistency which I like my BB creams to have. I was a little scared of the shade at the beginning as one shade for all but blended very naturally.
If you are wanting coverage this product is definitely not for you it is more a moisturiser with a tint. That said I think it definitely evens out skin tone making you look smoother and more radiant.
What Body shop have to say
Meet our skincare hero, Vitamin E Cool BB Cream. Our new take on BB cream illuminates, evens skin tone and protects with moisture for 12 hours. Available in one cool shade, the lightweight texture will effortlessly blend onto skin for a fresh and natural look.
Hydrates to protect
One cool shade effortlessly blend onto skin for a fresh and natural look.
I do think I agree with most of the comments above I think some could argue on the lightweight texture as I do think this is quite a thick cream which can take a few minutes to soak in. I don't have any problems with this as I like the feeling of it with my normally dry skin. Not sure how this will work on oily skin as find it hydrates and makes my skin look nice and dewy.
Price wise this product is £11 (here) so on the expensive end of BB creams but do I think it is worth it ... well I have repurchased and am still enjoying it. Only downside is no SPF so if you do purchase remember to put on a sunscreen or SPF moisturiser underneath especially now we finally have some sun.
