Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisturising Cream & Hemp Hand Protector |

Anyone notice a running theme with Body Shop lately? i just cant seem to get enough of the products that they have. All of these codes and offers they have i just cant resist. I have been wanting these two items for a long time but i have never got round to actually buying them until now.

The first product is the Vitamin E Illuminating Moisturising Cream. My latest post for these range was the facial oil which i love so much and i also have the sink in moisture mask which is another favourite of mine. I love this range and i think it would really help with all skin types as everyone needs added moisture some more then others. Now this cream is slightly different as it contains a slight glow to the skin which is fairly noticeable. The product itself feels abit like a paste to look at but it sinks into the skin beautifully and isnt heavy on the skin. The actual glow is a real winner as it looks like your skin is healthy and perks you up. This is something i would recommend if you have dull skin or if you just want abit of added radiance to your skin with no fuss. It brings it in terms of not being too sparkly but i think for problem skin it can draw our the imperfections more which is way i like to use this just on my cheekbones before foundation and instead of a hightlighter. Its a lovely subtle product that would be great for going out or if you have any special dates and you want to look radiant. At £10.00 or cheaper with any offers they have its a product that i think im going to get a lot of use of.

The next product that was actually a free gift offer going on at the body shop so i decided to try the Hemp Hand Protector. Now the weather is colder my hands are such mess with broken dry skin and even broken nails. My hands just cant take the cold weather. This hand cream is exactly what i needed to sort them out. It really has worked wonder and one of the things that i really like is that even after you have used this and then wash your hands again your hands still feel so soft and moisturised. Im not overly keen on the scent as i think its abit manly for my liking but its packed full of lovely moisturising ingredients so i cant complain if it does the job. Its not greasy at all but it can be if you apply too much and you only need a small amount. Really love this cream and its a must if you have dry chapped hands.

 Have you brought anything from the body shop lately?
