Don’t you hate it when the weather starts to change and your skin starts to act up too? Even slight change on temperature can affect a lot, crazy… Recently, I purchased The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet. I was looking for a lightweight product and the sales assistant recommended it and I like Vitamin E range so I thought why not…

I haven’t used sorbet before, so I didn’t really know what to expect and how it will be on my skin. The best way to check how a skincare product will be on your face is “Clean your face, apply the cream/serum on one cheek and don’t apply to other one. Then touch your cheeks every half an hour or an hour”, and it will give you some idea. Just do it when you’re at home and you want to try a new product. This is how I checked that sorbet. Even though I have oily skin, when it gets cold my skin goes through a phase and I start having dry patches, so after applying this product on one cheek it felt flawless and the other one felt rough and dry.

Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet is a really light product, which has a “gel-like” consistency and it sinks into skin quickly. My skin feels well moisturised, hydrated and so soft. What I also like about this product is that it’s not oily, so the skin doesn’t get greasy. Oily skinned people will know the struggle finding a product, which will hydrate the skin and doesn’t leave the skin oily; well this is one of them. Also, I think it is a great base for the makeup, it kinda acts like a primer for me, so no extra product on the skin is needed.

If you want a cooling effect, you could put this one in the fridge and then apply it (this is what the sales assistant told me in the store); I tried it and I can say it actually works. After a thermal mask, this is great for cooling down the skin. The only thing I don’t like is the fragrance, as I mostly choose unscented products. It is only lightly fragranced so it is nothing major. Nowadays, it is hard to find fragrance-free skincare products anyway.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sorbet

I’ve been using it a lot since I got it and I am glad I did… It is light and doesn’t leave my skin greasy and makes my skin so soft.

Have you tried anything from The Body Shop Vitamin E range? What’s your favourite lightweight skin care product?

  • SamanthaSeries

    I’m using this product right now! I’m not sure what I think of it though…. I feel like it’s awkward to put makeup over it because of it’s consistency. However, it does make my skin feel very cool & moisturized which is nice.

    • I don’t apply the makeup straight away, I always wait a little for my skin to absorb it xx

  • Lauren Letizio

    oooh this looks kind of amazing. I love skincare products (a guilty pleasure)! I think I would try it in the fridge for the cooling effect!!

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    Nice review, very detailed and informative. =) I haven’t tried anything from the Vitamin E range yet, but I’m definitely planning to… Sounds like it’ll be perfect or me x x


    • You should definitely check this range. There are some great products and also Vitamin E is great for the skin 🙂 xx

  • I love the Vitamin E range also, it’s such amazing quality for the price (especially when you pick it up in one of their sales). I have dry/dehydrated skin though so I usually go for something richer in texture, but this sounds like it could be a lovely option for summer x

    Beauty with charm

    • totally agree with you. Amazing quality for the price. It is perfect for summer as it can be cooling too xx

  • Margaret

    • Consistency is weird, something I am not really used to however I got used to it now. My skin feels soft after applying it. You should check this out <3 xx

  • My skin has been acting very weirdly since the weather has changed! I always try this one when I am in a Body Shop store, and it feels lovely , at least on my hand!

    • That’s how I tried it and thought well it feels good so let’s get it. I am happy that I did, it feels good on my face too, it is doing pretty good job x

  • Ellie Adams

    This is definitely one of my favourite ranges from The Body shop, such a lovely, light texture and feels amazing on the skin!


    • It is one of my favourite too, it feels really light on the skin! xx

  • This sounds lovely! I know what you mean about the struggles of oily skin – needing something hydrating but not wanting a grease ball for a face by mid afternoon! One moisturiser I can always rely on is La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo – amazing!! 🙂 x

    Brenda BusyBee

    • I heard great things about La Roche however haven’t had a chance to try it. I will definitely give it a try when I find it. xx

    I have never used vitamin E. I should try this sorbet and see whether I also get positive results. Have a great week!

    • Vitamin E is great for the skin, have a great week! xx

  • Sounds like an interesting product and I’m lured in because of the vitamin e! I know it’s great in helping with dark circles, so I’m wondering if it would help with dark spots. I’ll definitely have to look into, your review was awesome, thank you!

    I hope you have an amazing day, beauty!



    • I don’t have dark circles so I can’t really say anything about it but it is good for leaving a soft skin 🙂
      Have an amazing birthday xx

  • Josie Stewart

    I love the usual Vitamin E range and this sounds great! Would probably be better suited for summer for me though 🙂 x

    Josie | Sick Chick Chic

    • It is probably better for summer however it is still warm here so why not use it 🙂 xx

  • The Vit E eye cream is one of my all time favourite but I have yet to try anything else from the range. This sounds like a little miracle in a jar, hopefully it’s not too light for dry skin?

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I have some dry bits at the moment, I use it after exfoliating then I don’t have any problem. It is suitable for all skin types so I think it would be fine for dry skin too xx

  • This sounds lovely, I really love The Body Shop skincare but sometimes I forget about them when I’m buying new products!

    • The Body Shopr has some great skincare range, Vitamin E range is one of them.

  • MsSole

    I love lightweight moisturizers as well and vit E is excellent for the skin.

    I blog here:

  • I’ve heard a lot about the creams but never about the sorbet. It sounds interesting as I put on a lot of cream and then it can get quite shiny so I might have to look into this 🙂

    • I know the struggle, most of the time I feel like I need to wipe my face so get rid of the shine. This one is doing good until now 🙂 x

    • She is so right! Check The Body Shop’s range, there are some great ones x

  • I’ve heard such lovely things about this moisturizer. It’s on my wish list if I manage to make it to the Body Shop next time I’m abroad shopping or I may see about ordering online at some point. 🙂

    • Vitamin E range is great, you might really like it. Just give it a try 🙂 x

  • I really love the body shop but haven’t tried this range before! Looks lovely x

  • Haven’t tried anything from this range but it sounds so good. I have an oily skin, so finding a good hydrating cream is a pain in a certain area. They either too oily or do nothing. Might need to try this one out 🙂

    • Ha ha you made me laugh 🙂 Totally agree… pain in a certain area 🙂 This one seems to be doing good for now, I hope it stays that way xx

    • Living in a big city is a problem, you always need a decent skin care routine. x

  • This sounds wonderful! I used to use the seaweed mattifying moisturizer, but it started to react badly with my skin.
    I will have to check this out next time I visit!

    Thank you for sharing 🙂

    • What a shame… This one is doing good at the moment so I am happy with it 🙂 x

    This must be an amazing product. Need to give it a try.

    • When I have dry patches, first I exfoliate then use it. It works great that way xx

  • Georgie Mullen

    I love anything to do with the Body Shop, I just love that they are against animal testing. I wish more of the big brands were the same.

    • Totally agree with you. At least some companies changed their policy so they’re against animal testing.

  • sofia

    Sounds like a pretty amazing product ! I definetly feel like I need to go on a Body Shop Spree when I get to london! I have a new post up, would you mind checking it out? Xx Sofia
    p.s thanks for the tip on how to test if a cream works! really useful 🙂

    • It is really good! The Body Shop is good at skincare 🙂 x

  • Kelly M

    OOOO I like the sounds of this one! I totally hear you on the temperature change and how it makes skin go absolutely nuts. Looks like you’ve found a solution 😉


    • It is good for now, hopefully it will stay that way 🙂 xx

  • Such a great idea for trying out new skincare products! Totally stealing that idea 🙂 This sounds like a wonderful product and yep! I am constantly trying to find something that keeps me hydrated without adding to any oiliness. xo

    Kelsey |

    • That method is working for me 🙂 It is good and my skin feels so soft and hydrated 🙂 xx

  • Yes! I always have to switch up my medicine cabinet with the seasons because my face just gets all kinds of crazy! Hahaha. I’ll have to look more into this!

    Kristyn Cole | Contrast of Effect | IG

    • Totally agree with you, my face gets the same! It is doing fine for now 🙂 x

  • The vitamin E range from the Body Shop is such a life saver for someone with really dry skin like me!

  • I have tried the vitamin e facial oil (and its so amazing) and I’ve tried their body fruit sorbets (really didn’t like them) but I haven’t tried this combination of the too. seeing as how I didn’t enjoy the body sorbets, I probably won’t go for this.

    • This is the first time I’ve tried sorbet and for now it is doing ok. Texture is definitely different but it is a light product.

  • I love putting gel products in the fridge! This product sounds so intriguing, passed by it in store a couple of times, will definitely give it a sniff and swatch next time I’m in store! <3

    Stephanie | Beauty Bucketeer

    • Definitely do it, it might be a good product for summer 🙂

  • I had this sorbet too , I have finished it and I loved it !I even kept the tub to remind me to buy a new one as I love the texture and more importantly it is a great product for my skin.

    • It is really good, I like using in day and night 🙂

  • Elizabeth Breygel

    I love the packaging, it looks so simple and classy! And I love the pictures you`ve made 🙂

    The Body Shop products are amazing! I have a night cream similar to this one and my skin is always glowing when I wake up.

  • I used several bodyshop products but cant say I do love them however the sound of sorbet and especially vitamin E is very tempting to give it a try! Thanks for sharing x
