Today I am going to review The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser. Cleansers form a very important part of my skincare regime and I simply cannot do without one. I happened to pick this one up on my last visit to TBS, my previous cleanser was nearing its end and was on the lookout for a new one. I have indulged in most of the products from the TBS Vitamin E range and am satisfied with the results so far, so when the SA suggested this one I decided to give it a try. So lets see whether it fares equal to its siblings or not.
About the Product:
Formulated for daily cleansing and protection with a unique skin-softening complex.
Effectively removes make-up and impurities. Leaves your skin clean, soft and supple. With pure wheat germ oil and Community Fair Trade soya oil and shea butter.
Directions for use: Massage into skin with fingertips and remove using a clean cotton pad or muslin cloth. If product gets in eyes, rinse with clean water.

Packaging and content:
This cleanser comes in a baby pink colored bottle exclusive to The Body Shop Vitamin E range with a flip open cap that makes the bottle travel friendly. The small opening avoids excessive outflow and shuts tightly with a click. The content is white in color and is more like a thick lotion.
My experience with TBS Vitamin E cream cleanser.
I have used it both ways, directly on a cotton round to remove those stubborn traces of waterproof makeup and as a part of my daily cleansing and I am impressed with the results. It effectively removes all makeup and dirt and I can feel my skin clean, clear and moisturized. I can do without the use of a face wash but out of habit I prefer to use a face wash whilst removing makeup. The best part is that it is absolutely non greasy unlike most of the cleansers I have previously come across. My skin is of the normal-dry combination type and yet it used to have breakouts with my previous cleansers but this one absolutely not.
As you can see in the pictures how effectively it removes all the toughest of makeup in just two swipes and my skin doesn’t appear like a shining mirror either. I have used Chambor flowing lipstick, Chambor tattoo eye liner and Maybelline vivid and smooth eye liner pencil to show the results.A very small amount is required for the entire cleansing so do not use more than required as we all know that excess of everything is bad. This one has a slight fragrance and can be used on a regular basis.
Now summing up the pros and cons:
• Lives up to all its claims
• Travel friendly and hygienic packaging
• Non-greasy texture
• Suitable for all skin types
• Effectively removes dirt and impurities
• Makes skin supple and smooth.
• Removes all traces of makeup including waterproof ones
• Little goes a long way
• Has a mild fragrance
• Contains parabens
Other than this I could not associate any other cons with the product.
Will I repurchase: Absolutely, this one is light on the skin and also makes the skin soft and supple. I would certainly recommend it to everyone.
IMBB rating: 4.5/5 for parabens.
