My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream :
I got it a while back from the Body Shop counter and the SA promised me it is one of the best BB creams ever. It is available in only one shade which would only suit medium to dark skin tones. My fair skin only turned one shade darker!! I went ahead and applied it all over my face. Texture is thick and smooth. As claimed it does cool and hydrates the skin and very little product gives ample coverage. Being thick and creamy it took time to sink in and absorbed after massaging in for a bit and gives a cooling sensation. It does not cover any marks, only evenly tones the skin to a darker shade !! Comes in a 50ml plastic tube with flip cover which is travel friendly. It can feel oily and greasy within few minutes of application for oily skin.
Pros of The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream:
Cools and hydrates
Can be suitable for dry skin
Cons of The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream:
Only one shade
Does not mention if its not tested on animals
Not for oily skin
Not long lasting
Does not illuminate or even tone
Would I repurchase The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream?
Definitely not!! Far better BB creams are available for my skin tone in the market. I would recommend it for honey-dusky coloured girls with dry –normal skin. Always try it at the counter first to match the skin.
As of what I’ll do with the remaining tube, I have tried to contour with it, using it as the darker shade .
