BB Cream -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream

on 12/11/2017 3:08:00 AM


This has no coverage, if I have to rate the coverage it would be 1/5. But nonetheless, it has a good smell and it helps with my very mild breakouts. It's also not sticky but the longevity is about 3 hours only. I only wear this whenever I have some pimples.

Moisturizers -The Body Shop -Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet

on 12/10/2017 7:34:00 PM


I'm really enjoying this product!! I'm cleansing with the chamomile butter to remove makeup, gel grapefruit cleanser from Malin+Goetz, after patting my face dry I will use one of various toners I have from the body shop ( tea tree toner if I am around my period or having any breakouts, aloe toner if im sensitive, or vitamin e toner with dry winter skin) gently swipe one of those with a cotton pad over entire face and neck.

Honestly Im not big on using serums lately, so I go in with body shops vitamin e essence lotion and pour some into my hand and pat gently all over my face, as my first layer of hydration. Then, during this time of the year being winter, I will pat a beauty oil over the essence and for me Josie Marans agran oil has been working beautifully. Then I finish everything off with this sorbet to help seal in everything I have used. This light weight cream has dimethicone in it which basically helps to keel hydration locked into your skin, preventing epidermal water loss. The problem some people are having with this is that they are treating it like plain moisturizer right after they cleanse and its not giving enough moisture. This cream is intended to use similar to Clinique moisture surge, works best paired with hydration underneath and this cream helps to lock it all in.

On its own, its very light weight and sits very well under makeup or used in place of a primer. Which is how I use it for day time, I will just tone with a cotton pad, spritz face with vitamin e face mist or another facial mist, then finish with this sorbet and my face is ready makeup!

Bottom line, if you are DRY or using for nighttime nourishment purposes, this is a finishing cream to lock in all your moisture from either oils, serums, creams, etch. If you sore oily/combination you can use as your moisturizer for a lightweight hydration.

As far as smell, it seems much more perfumey in the jar than it does on my actual skin. It does not smell like the rest of the vitamin e line, its a much sweeter fruity smell that may bother some sensitive noses but I think it dissipates fairly quickly after applying. I was hoping it would smell like the vitamin e toner or the facial spray which smell like rose water but this one is different,

Overall I would totally repurchase! I used to use Clinique moisture surge the same way I use thud sorbet, but this is a fraction of the cost. The performance is the same in my opinion but the main differences is that Clinique's is completely free of any fragrance smell and also the texture if the creams. Cliniques is a medium thick gel cream and this sorbet is like a thicker gel with very tiny gritty grains that you can't actually feel while applying to the skin. Both leave a nice velvety soft touch to your skin.

I recommend!

Masks -The Body Shop -Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow mask

Amazing mask - tightens my pores, minimizes breakouts and leaves my skin glowing. Massive pain to wash off though, the leaves/charcoal extracts like to stick. Price is reasonable and packaging is gorgeous.

Toners -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner

on 12/6/2017 4:30:00 AM


This stings my face really bad upon the initial application, I'm not really sure about this part, but I think it actually broke me out?? I think this too 'strong' for a toner.

It smells really bad as well. It's probably the smell of the tea tree, but it was too overpowering and 'spicy' for my liking.

Cleansers -The Body Shop -Tea Tree Oil Foaming Face Wash

I never had acne in my teen years but since I was 21 I started having acne in all my face, I was desperate to get rid of the spots and the tea tree was the solution.
