Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet ($22) from The Body Shop has me absolutely blown away. I think I’ve mentioned this a time or two already, but today I wanted to share all of my thoughts and give a full review on this moisturizing wonder.
I found this product totally by accident. I had been looking through the full stock of Vitamin E products on The Body Shop’s website, and saw that they had just released a new moisturizer. Being the beauty lover that I am, I snatched it up as quickly as I could (with a name like “aqua boost sorbet” can you blame me?). When it arrived, I wasted no time before applying this all over my face, and was instantly impressed.
This sorbet is described as “an instant cooling sensation for all day hydration. This silky-soft moisturizer hydrates and refreshes skin with an ultra-light light formula.” Almost immediately after application, I noticed a light cold feeling on my face, like I had just stepped outside into the cold winter air. It wasn’t tingly or minty feeling, just extremely cool and refreshing. The consistency of this moisturizer is unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It’s kind of like a gel-silicone hybrid, almost reminiscent of a face primer but creamier. It doesn’t feel sticky or greasy at all, and absorbs quickly into the skin making your face feel intensely smoother and more supple. This also smells fantastic – very light and pretty, and somewhat comforting (but maybe that’s just me, haha).
I’ve been using this moisturizer in my morning skincare routine for the past few weeks and it has completely helped my face. It’s added so much moisture back into my skin that the cold winter air has sucked out. My skin feel plump and hydrated, while looking brighter and more even-toned. I think adding this little pot of moisture to my skincare regimen is the best beauty decision I’ve made this year.
Have you tried the Aqua Boost Sorbet yet? Would you add it to your skincare routine?
