Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Cool BB Cream
You might remember from the packaging that this new BB cream looks really familiar. It is a reformulation of the former Vitamin E Tinted Moisturiser. Eventhough this BB Cream is named “COOL” BB Cream, do not expect this to be like the MAC Cooling Powder which gives you a cooling sensation when used. I did however experience an initial hint of “coolness” when i first touches my skin.
“Experience beautifully fresh-looking skin in an instant. Vitamin E COOL BB Cream illuminates, evens and corrects your complexion for a refreshed skin-look. What’s more, this hydrating BB Cream drenches skin with moisture for 12 hours.”
The BB Cream is enriched with wheatgerm oil, one of nature’s richest sources of Vitamin E.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. Antioxidants are agents that neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Yup, this is the same kind of antioxidant found in berries and avocado.
This BB Cream only comes in one shade. So it’s kind of like a one shade fits all. It has the consistency of cream foundation but not as thick and tacky as some other BB Creams out there.
- This is one of the most hydrating BB Cream I have ever used. It doesn’t sit into any lines at all.
- I love the illuminating dewy sheen it leaves behind but it can feel a little sticky and needs to be lightly set with powder.
- The coverage is extremely light so don’t expect it to cover any scars. However, it does even out the skintone, especially if you have mild redness or hyperpigmentation.
- On the whole, it’s a nice product, great as a base before foundation.
The Bodyshop Vitamin E COOL BB Cream is available at all The Body Shop stores at $26.90 each for 50ml of product.
