Cons: despite being called 'Aloe' day cream it doesn't actually contain any traces of aloe...which I only realised today upon researching the ingredients. Very disappointing, and now I feel like the price does not match what you're getting really.

Pros: This cream is wonderful and simple, it doesn't have any fragrance or anything harsh, which so many other moisturisers do (which triggers my dermatitis, this cream is great for it). I do have dry skin and agree with the other reviews that it wouldn't be suitable for oilier skin types.

I have been buying it consistently for years now, mainly because it gives me no trouble and I'm too slack to go looking and trying for a new one!.. (possibly that actually has any aloe vera in it.. )

I have combo skin right now but my t-zone is very oily and I am quite prone to acne. This cream was way too much for my skin. Despite a texture that seems very thin this left my skin so greasy and shiny that is wasn't even tolerable on a day off or night use. Did not break me out at all. Would be a lovely product for someone with very dry skin. Would not repurchase.

I used to use the tea tree oil moisture gel religiously but as I got older my skin started to get a little less oily and I didn't need the tea tree oil to strip my nature oil anymore. I hadn't been to the body shop looking for something new in a long time and the salesperson there recommended the aloe gel cream instead. I had tried the Alba Botanica green tea moisturizer that's similar but it broke me out really badly and I had to return it. At first, I didn't like this moisturizer at all but the more my skin adjusted to it the better it was. I just needed to keep trying it since my skin was so used to the other body shop moisturizer. This experience has been so good that I would consider buying more from the body shop in the future.

The best moisturizer ever, a blessing for my sensitive skin! Feels great, pampers my skin and leaves it soft as satin. Kinda pricey, like most of The Body Shop products but definitely worth the money.

I ended up trying it out one day, but not putting any makeup on. When I went out I went to wipe something out of my eye and brushed up against my cheek. I felt this greasy gross feeling and thought why does my face feel this greasy? Then I realized I put the lotion on. Never again. It felt like I rubbed a stick of butter all over my face.

Moisturises really well, and mild enough to use on my rosacea

This product was OK - I didn't find anything particularly great about it.

- It is fragrance free (by fragrance free I mean there is no perfumey or nice smell to it, doesn't really smell great).
- It did the job and made my skin feel moisturised however it was too rich for my skin and made it a little greasy. It also clogged my pores.
- Packaging is quite basic (plastic tub)
- It's literally just a moisturiser - didn't have any added benefits or make my skin look any healthier.

I've been using this product for six months now and I absolutely love this! The day cream doesn't break me out (I have slight acne prone skin) and is also very moisturizing. It takes about 5 minutes for this product to get into the skin.

The product wears well under makeup but if I don't use a primer my skin tends to get oily in the middle of the day. If I put it on my face before go to sleep, my T-zone feels a little bit greasy in the morning. Also, I run out of this very quickly.

Overall I do really like this product and I use it every day & night!

This product is good . Doesnt break me out . Does feel a bit greasy on face . But the main problem , is the smell of this product . The smell was pretty bad ... if not overall , this would be great . Too expensive for a small tube . Will not buy this product again .

Pros:
Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Doesn't break me out.
Not that expensive.

Cons:
Smeeeellls baaaaaad. Like really bad. It has a strong, gross plasticky smell that fortunately fades quite quickly, but is gag inducing on first application.
Absorbs quickly enough but leaves a greasy-looking finish - I get major forehead shine with this cream.

Oh well, it was worth a try.
