Replenish & Recharge

Hello! During the time when my skin was really thirsty and showed it, I appealed to the beauty bloggers of twitter to help me out. Someone suggested something that I was too desperate not to try and even now that my skin has been rehydrated, I can't help but continue to slap it on!

The Body Shop's Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil is what has been an absolute savior to my skin. I had been trying all of the moisturizers I owned, layering them up, using honey and olive oil but nothing worked to help sooth my skin back to it's smooth state. However, after roughly 3 consecutive nights of using this there were barely any signs that there was anything there anymore that resembled a dry patch. It wasn't completely normal and it took about 2 weeks for my skin to completely calm down and return to it's old self but this was definitely what got it to that point.

I've seen that some people find this too heavy for overnight but if my skin is feeling at all tight or I've been out in this glorious weather we are having I will drop 3-4 drops from the pipette (super handy for oils and serums!) onto the tips of my fingers and massage it into my face really well. If I have any excess I will massage it into my hands really well or apply it to the ends of my hair and it just keeps them tame! Yes, it gives you that oily appearance (not in your hair if you're only using the excess!) but it's so worth it for how my skin looks in the morning. I think my make up goes on really smooth, it doesn't break me out and it makes my skin look really healthy. It does exactly what it says on the tin: 'Replenish & recharge moisture' and for that I am so grateful.

Have you tried this or anything else from this range?
