The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet face moisturizer - Review

Hey my loves!

I will be reviewing The Body Shop's Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet face moisturizer today, keep reading!

I'm a huge fan of the original Vitamin E face moisturizer from The Body Shop, so when they came out with the lighter version for summer, I was really excited to try it.

It comes in a glass container with a plastic screw on lid. 
(which makes it heavy, not ideal if you travel regularly) 

What stands out the most is the consistency of this moisturizer. It actually looks, smells and feels like a sorbet!
Now, if you have dry skin, or dry combination skin like myself, it's not going to do much for you in terms of moisturizing, but if you have oily skin, this could just be THE ONE! It moisturizes ever so slightly without leaving your skin feel oily.

On the down side, it does not come with SPF. 
I apply (and you should too) a separate sunscreen regardless of the SPF factor in my moisturizer, but, when you buy a moisturizer designed as a "summer time" moisturizer, you would expect it to come with SPF, just for that added protection.

But really, the actual problem I had with it is that, it BROKE ME OUT! And I read a few reviews online and realized that many women went through the same unfortunate experience!

I didn't feel any Vitamin E benefits either. (like hydration or brightness, like you get from the original Vitamin E cream)

All in all, it just broke me out terribly, did very little to hydrate my skin and gave no other benefits.
Sadly, I don't recommend this product.

That's it for today mi loves! Hope this helped you. Catch ya' later alligator!


  1. Omg such as shame it break you out I was hoping it would replace my clinque gel moisturiser but guess not:( , hope your skin has now cleared up.


    1. I just saying that you are looking beautiful. My my love.

    2. Hi Audrey, thank you for commenting. :)
      It is nothing like the clinique get moisturizer. Stay tuned for a review of that. And it took weeks for my break outs to clear up! but they're finally gone. PHEW!

  2. Oh! Where did my comment go? :-(

    I love this moisturizer and am so sorry it didn't work for you. I guess everyone reacts differently. My gosh, I once used Olay's Total Effect moisturizer for 2-3 days (a few of my friends swear by it) and broke out so badly that I was on Proactiv for 6 months! Yes, it was THAT bad!

    I love this body shop cream though. Its so light and I love the silky feeling the cream has. To Audrey above, I find it quite similar to Clinique's Dramatically Different gel and stocked up when the body shop had their 3 for 2 sale.

    My husband also loves this and is currently on his 3rd pot.. lol

    1. Hi Layla, thank you for your comment. It's great that it worked for you. Although, I am currently using the coliniques dramatically different gel, and I dont see the similarity at all.. :\

  3. Hi Jovita.
    Thanks for this honest review. I share the exact same sentiments, even though I did not experience breakouts.

    1. Really? Thank you for your comment:)

    2. Oh yeah!! IMHO this was an over-hyped, over-marketed and over-priced product with absolutely ZERO moisture properties. Am glad you also saw behind all the hype. Most reviews I read were generally positive; hence I excitedly tried the product much to my disappointment though.

  4. I was planning of trying this, but i'll stick to using the Neutrogena Hydroboost gel as it has an SPF and suits my oily skin
