Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil Review

 Hello little kitties!

After a week of blog procrastination here I am again. I wasn't feeling that inspired to write... Don't know why. Maybe it's the weather. It's still crappy, I'm feeling crappy, I need sun, and warmth, and shorts! Like now!

So yesterday was the Oscar's (don't cry fellow Leo fans, one day will be him) and today's post has nothing to do it! Such a good introduction! I'm beyond myself with my own skills.

Today's post is in fact a review. I don't know why I keep trying to build suspense, when the post theme is on the title. But anyway, we will be reviewing the Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. I already bought it at the beginning of February, but I like to really try out things first, before saying anything. I don't trust any reviews in which the product was tested for like a week, or less!

But moving on! First I should tell you what type of skin I have. My skin is dry, with a little bit more oil on the T zone, not overly sensitive, very thin, and not very acne prone, only when my hormones decide to go crazy on me. Now, onto the goodies, for serum I used to use the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, because I like to be original! And I really like it, my skin feels supple, smooth and glowing from the inside. Of course any good skin day that i might have it's never only due to the serum, but it definitely helps! Especially because it allows me to customise a little.

I'll explain what do I mean by this. I apply the serum all over my face, and then, I only apply my night cream (Bobby Brown Extra Repair Moisturising Balm) on my cheeks, where I am most dry. But I am detouring. So, back to serums! I went into Body Shop and right at the entrance was a table full of the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. I got intrigued and it was so much cheaper than the Estée Lauder one, so i though "Why not?". Also the packaging is cute!

I only use at night, because even though they say it's non greasy, I think it would be too heavy for daytime, for me at least. So after a month of using it, it doesn't fall short in comparison to the Estée Lauder. And did I mention it's much cheaper? That's always a bonus. I can't talk for its effects on aging signs, but for hydrating, is really good.

Bottom line, if you're someone looking for an affordable, good quality, serum, that hydrates your skin, this might be worth a try!

That's all for today! I made chewy brownies and have some ice cream in the freezer, so you know what I'll be doing! Eating some healthy snack of course! What else did you though?

Anyway, I uploaded a new video on Saturday, so why not go check it out and subscribe, join the family instead of being here in ninja mode. I'm a nice person, I swear!

Stay Gorgeous!
