After much trial and error- the gals at TBS suggested this line. I tried the Vit C, seaweed and nutriganics. Nutriganics was ok but the others broke me out. this is nice and light... absorbs quickly and my skin has taken well to it. I wish the fragrance wasn't so powerful though. Kinda overwhelming at first, but does fade fast.
All in all, I like it, but don't love it. Will continue to use until I can find something else.

I first picked this up in the winter, since I suffer from combination skin (but the dry bits get REALLY dry in winter). It left my skin feeling so smooth and dewy without being oily looking and I was in love. I thought this was my new forever moisturizer.
Then summer happened. When the temperatures started to rise and I was sweating a lot, I found this moisturizer is just too thick for use when it's hot. My skin looked oily and I started breaking out a lot.
Once I switched moisturizers, my complexion went back to normal, so I know it was this moisturizer that made me break out.
I DO recommend it for the winter, or to anyone who suffers from dry skin year round, but for oily skinned or combination women it is not a good choice when the weather gets warm.
I will buy it again once the weather turns dry and cold.

i brought the vitamin e cream with spf15 as i had been using Clarins for about 9 years and it had just stopped working was getting loads of breakouts and scars from picking. Also wanted to try using drug store brands.
I thought the spf 15 and vitamin e would help with healing and stop pigmentation occurring.
The cream absorbs too quickly and leaves me feeling really matte and thye vitamin e hasn;t helped scars at all.
Packaging is good and hygienic but i won't be buying again, i don't feel two bad because it was about £9.
During the mission of rescuing my skin i started using olay 7in 1 face wash and it was great but thats another story!

I picked this up a couple of weeks ago when The Body Shop had buy two get one free. I was a little unsure as it has a pretty heavy consistency. After using it since then I can tell you this moisturizer is amazing! I was a bit nervous as it comes in such a small size for what you pay, but you need so little each day that it is going to last a long time. It gives my skin a dewy, glowy, feeling without being too heavy. I normally opt for moisturizers that leave a matte look, but now that I've switched to this I won't go back. I have combination skin and this is just right for moisturizing the dry parts and keeping the rest in check and from getting to shiny. I highly suggest you go pick some up today! This is my new forever moisturizer. And with SPF you can't go wrong.

I am not sure if this is for the facial moisturizer or a body lotion. I am a huge fan of the facial moisturizer - it absorbs quickly and is a great primer before foundation. I have had problems buying again - clerk at store said there was problems getting product from "fair trade" routes? Not sure but I hope they work out issues soon. This stuff is great!

I got this to try as my day cream, as it had spf 15. Unfortunately, I found it too oily for my combination skin. It made me break out, so I had to give it away.

Great everyday moisturizer for most times of the year. I get a little dry in the winter with this sometimes and it can be a little heavy during the heat of the summer, but it works great the rest of the year. It has a light scent and spreads easily.

This is actually a very good product. Comes in a medium sized squeeze tube with flip cap.
The moisturizer itself is a white creme with the *perfect* consistency.
This is important to me as I mix concealer with sunscreen/ moisturizer every morning.
This has great spreadability. It isnt too thick like nivea cream which you have to fight to spread over your skin. It glides right on! Its not thin, sticky and pasty like many sunscreens.
It leaves no whitish cast just a subtle "im a hot 16 yr old with glowing skin" kind of gleam which I find perfect. Not matte, not dry just youthful, virile, beautiful glowing skin!
Its very moisturizing on my dryish skin but doesnt look or feel like and oil slick.
And did I mention it has the most delicate rose scent. Not at all overpowering as some have mentioned just subtle and really lovely to catch during the middle of the day.
It hasnt bothered my allerigies and was so faint I couldnt even pinpoint where it was coming from for a while but very pleasing!
Only SPF 15.
I personallly like to think my face is really being protected the ravages of sun. SPF 15 everyday doesnt cut it! If I found this formulation in spf 50-70 it would be my HG. I might even settle for SPF 30 but this is not enough.
Price $18 for just 2.5 oz is a little much to spend on something I use every day and have to constantly repurchase. Also I prefer my staples to be drugstore items so that theyre easily accessible. Dont like driving to a Body Shop.
Love this but have since switched to Coppertone NutraShield Faces in SPF 70. Not as spreadable and moisturizing but better protection.

Pros: moisturizing, broad-spectrum protection, non-greasy, bought on sale
Cons: rose scent, parabens
I've been meaning to purchase this product for awhile but either I've been too busy or I was over my credit limit. The Body Shop stores were on sale here in Manila and I was feeling depressed that day, and buying makeup/lotions/etc is my way of making myself feel better. I was browsing the store when this very persistent SA kept well pestering me to buy this, buy that, mainly because they were on sale, (10-30%). I went over to the Vitamin E section, convincing myself that I need a moisturizer, since my Olay moisturizer just ran out. Anyway since it was on sale, I figured, what the hell? The SA even managed to convince me to become a Body Shop member. That day, I was suffering from a cold, and obviously I wasn't really bothered with the smell since most MUA members kept mentioning how annoying/cloying the scent was. Now, the first time I used it, I was really impressed. I kept looking at my skin and it was glowing! Since I live in a very hot climate, most moisturizers tend to make my skin greasy mid-afternoon, greasy and sweaty. But this moisturizer didn't do that at all, my skin still looked halfway decent, and best of all, my skin looked glowing even when I was sweating profusely.
Ok, the downside. I had to put in more than a pea-sized amount of moisturizer. With olay, I would put in a very small amount because it can make me feel very greasy and sweaty, hate that feelling. With this, a small amount would make you reaching for that tube again. And now that my cold is halfway gone, I would say that the rose scent annoys me. I never was fond of that scent anyway and I felt that it's a bit strong. It does fade througout the day, its just annoying when it's freshly applied.
I might repurchase it again if,,i don't find a better moisturizer and it's on sale. Everything would have been perfect if not for that rose scent.

I had bought this too quickly and got it confused with the Vitamin E moisture cream that I sampled before haha.
The scent is a strong baby powder smell that makes me want to sneeze
and the lotion absorbs too quickly; do not use under makeup especially.
I gave it to my mom
