Review | The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-In-Oil

Sunday, 5 October 2014



I've had quite a few dry patches on my face recently so picked up The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-In-Oil (£13/28ml). This product is a blend of natural oils, including jojoba, wheat germ and sweet almond oil, with a serum. It's a light and silky texture which aims to recharge and moisturise the skin.

When you have oily skin there's often the temptation to only use products devoid of oil, but when I've relied heavily on such products previously they've only served to make my face oilier, irritated and extremely dry in places. I now work on balancing the natural oils on my face (rather than stripping them away completely) and this product is quickly proving to be great for my skin.


I've been using the serum-in-oil every couple of days before bed after cleansing for the past few weeks and it's been keeping my skin really soft and moisturised. The dry areas of my face in particular feel much smoother and even. It's easy to apply, absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my skin greasy.


As Vitamin E is usually great for fading scars I really hoped this serum-in-oil would provide relief from some scarring on my face. So far I've not noticed any improvement but my skin has seemed brighter in general.

I'll definitely continue to use this product nightly to keep it soft and hydrated. I imagine I'll be reaching for this more often as the temperature drops and my skin gets drier.


Have you tried any products from The Body Shop?

  1. I find many of body shops products quite "lame". As much as I love their philosophy, I don't find their products very active. When you look at the ingredients list, the active product is very low down on the list. Even in their oils, oil is not the first listed product. Just the fact that they have so many other products than oil in their oils concerns me. I don't think they make any harm but I tinj it is pricey for products that are so diluted. The only product I really like are their shower gels.

    1. I know exactly what you mean but I guess I'm less picky when it comes to ingredients. I usually buy their products when they are on offer or there's 40% off deals as that makes the price more reasonable. I like their shower gels too x

  2. My favourite is the tea tree facial wash.
