Beauty | Three From Vitamin E

There's always been a massive hype around Vitamin E & how beneficial and protective it is for our skin!
What's so special about Vitamin E is that it acts as a barrier, repelling any everyday nasties away from your skin, so things you wouldn't necessarily think of such as environmental pollution, UV radiation, even smoke, these products will all stick two fingers up to them. Not only will popping some form of Vitamin E product onto your skin will eradicate any nasties, but it also helps to moisturise & rejuvenate the skin... So all in all, it's a pretty handy Vitamin to get mates with.

Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator.
When I think of my exfoliator collection (because I have a few) I think of really gritty & texturised products that'll literally scrape a layer of my skin off... This however is very different! The grains inside are so super duper tiny & the product has a really creamy texture. It's so soft and gentle and leaves the skin feeling really hydrated, which is pretty unusual for an exfoliator, especially if you have a look at my sandpaper-esque collection. I've really enjoyed using this product, it's amazing! I use it once a week and find it brightens my whole face area massively. 

Vitamin E Cool BB Cream.*
Because it's been so hot outside, I've been using this so much recently - It's taken over from my usual foundation. It's much lighter & leaves my skin actually feeling like skin. Surprisingly this BB Cream has quite a thick consistency, so I find it applies best like my foundation, with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. The shade is absolutely perfect for me and blends amazingly well to leave a sun kissed dewy finish. 

Vitamin E Overnight Serum In Oil.
I feel like this is probably the most hyped product of the lot! Landing on The Body Shops shelves last year it seems every blogger and their dog has tried this product, the majority of whom have sang it's praises to no end! 
As the name suggests its between a serum & an oil, so it's a very unusual texture and consistency when applied to the face. This product recharges the skin overnight so when you wake up your face feels much softer and so much healthier. It's especially good if it's been wet & windy the day before, the bad weather plays absolute havoc with my skin so popping a bit of this on overnight works absolute wonders.
I have enjoyed using this product & it's grown its way into my overnight routine however I can't help but feeling a little bit lack lustre with it - Sometimes I think products can get hyped way to much (this being one of them) so when it works well & not outstandingly well you can be left feeling a tad peeved. Does anyone else get like that? I think this product is great, but I don't love it love it! I much prefer the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask - Now that is a product I love love!

Have you tried any of these products before? What else would you reccomend from The Body Shops Vitamin E range?

Lots of love | xclaireabella
