One brand I really seem to be using a lot in my skincare routine in the past few months is The Body Shop. In particular their Vitamin E range. I’ve been using their Aqua Boost Sorbet for the past few months, and figured it’s worth talking about. Retailing at £13.00, it’s certainly not the cheapest moisturiser on the market, but if you have a loyalty card with The Body Shop, you can get this slightly cheaper, so that’s worth considering.
The product itself is packaged inside a glass jar, which contains a decent amount of product. That or I just make it last a long time, since I’ve watched the level of the product slowly lower down the jar and I’m only halfway. I’ve been using this for at least 3 months so far, and it’s another product I’ve used where a little can go a long way.
The texture of the moisturiser is somewhat bizarre as it does resemble a sorbet to some degree. It’s extremely easy to blend over the skin, and has a fantastic light-weight feel. This has been great for summer time, and even now as the weather gets colder, I plan on using this until I run out. It’s great for oiler skin types like myself, as it doesn’t feel heavy at all, and you don’t need to apply thick layers to feel the benefits. The only drawback from such a lightweight moisturiser is that it doesn’t have any sun protection, so you will need to use a separate product for that. I don’t hold this against the moisturiser, since it does its job well, and so far hasn’t made my skin oilier or caused irritation. I have also started using this for my t-zone at night as well, since I’m struggling to find a moisturiser for nighttime which doesn’t clog my pores or cause extra oil production.
Other than the price not being ideal for individuals with smaller budgets, it is a good product. You can make this last months and months if you use it sparingly, which has really made the price justifiable for me. I personally wouldn’t travel with it because the jar is very likely to break if dropped or if it collides with something in your luggage, but otherwise, I’m very happy with this product.
