Hey guys! I am a longtime fan of The Body Shop products for a number of reasons and this daily cleanser highlights one of them: The Body Shop pretty much rocks at producing no-fuss, reasonably priced products for a streamlined morning or night skincare routine.
Vitamin E Cream Cleanser is totally old school- think Pond’s Cold Cream or classic Oil of Olay. This medium weight oil based cream cleanser is super gentle, fantastic for removing dirt and makeup and will never strip your skin. You can use it with or without water and it leaves my face feeling super soft.
I would recommend this product for dry, sensitive skin types only. If you have acne prone, combination or oily skin, this stuff probably won’t work for you. I found this cleanser to be great on days where I had used an exfoliating product or had a facial. It was also perfect for throwing into my gym bag for post- workout washing.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser has a light floral fragrance, which smells to me like rose and day lily. A few cons: I love skincare products that help shrink my pores, and this really didn’t do anything for that. Also, I noticed that after use, this cleanser can have a very slight numbing effect on my skin.
At the moment, I won’t be repurchasing this, but if I’m ever on the market for an extra gentle, moisturizing cleanser, I might consider it. I purchased this full size 6.75 oz. bottle for a very reasonable $16.00 at Ulta Beauty.
Have a lovely day!
