Winters and Vitamin E seems to be pretty good companions! When everyone has a well hydrated skin as a goal in winters, getting something or may be a lot, extra, turns out to be a pretty good deal. And if that comes from a brand that is organic and cruelty free, you’ll always feel guilt-free! I am talking about none other than The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Protect Emulsion which I have been using since a few days and today I am going to tell you a lot about it!
About The Looks!
The product comes in a slender cylindrical plastic bottle that is pink in color with a black cap. The bottle has the white stickers which has the name of the brand, the product, the key ingredients and other properties printed on. Towards the back, there is the price, shelf life, quantity and other information printed. The bottle comes with a pump top that makes it super easy for the product to come out and feels pretty hygienic too! The quality of the packaging is super and we can’t expect any less than this from The Body Shop! The bottle looks very pretty and feminine. The pink color kind of gives a feeling of blushing winters! So, in short, I really love the packaging!

My experience with The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Protect Emulsion!
Emulsion is a lighter form of a cream, so its quite less thick as compared to the latter. Hence, it becomes suitable for sensitive and in fact all skin types. While, I was ready to try the product for the first time I was expecting the formula to be pretty light. And the very first pump, proved me right! The product is white in color is pretty much in a liquid form. It will drip down slowly if the hand is upside down or a little tilted. It smells like sunscreen but I can feel a bottom note of something really nice in it, something flowery. In other words it smells like a good smelling sunscreen.
Now coming to the application. Just one pump of the product was enough for my face and neck. Initially I could see a slight shine on face, but it disappeared after a few minutes. The emulsion is light in formula but doesn’t compromises on the hydration part. While applying, I could feel the richness and the level of moisturization. My skin felt super soft, smooth, supple and bouncy all day! You know, you feel the difference when you touch your skin even after hours of its wear and its feels really great to see your skin glow and radiant!
Now, while keeping the skin well fed with moisture, this emulsion also kept my skin sun safe. With SPF 30 PA +++, It actually provides a decent sun protection. Now I would like to mention that this amount of SPF is good for 3-4 hours and you would need to touch up the sun screen after that.
The anti-oxidant power of the Wheat Germ Oil and the Moisture Power of the Hyaluronic Acid are the key for that good effect on the skin! Wheatgerm oil is one of the richest sources of antioxidant vitamin E that helps protect the skin from moisture loss and environmental damage such as free radicals. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and acts as a moisture magnet trapping up to 1000x its own weight in moisture, helping to improve your skin’s moisture content. The Body Shop’s Hyaluronic acid is of 100% natural origin, derived by bio-fermenting it with wheat; a bi-product that would otherwise go to waste.
So now you would understand that your skin is in good hands with this product! There are other formulas in the same collection, in case your skin needs extra. I can see myself using this product the entire winter season! I love it!
