Review: Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil

So i've not been the best with my blog this last week, so apologies! Been a little busy but i'm back on track now.

So this is my second ever product review.. woo!

I was sent a product to review from The Body Shop at Fort Kinnaird and I couldn't wait to try it.

Now as someone who has pretty rubbish skin in general, I was excited to give this a go. Anything that will make my skin behave is always good in my book.

The product description on the website goes like this:

Wake up to beautiful skin with new Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil, a technical innovation combining the power of a serum and oil to indulge, replenish and recharge skin with moisture overnight.

  • 8h beauty sleep for your skin
  • Skin feels recharged, replenished and softer
  • Skin looks fresher, rested and more radiant
  • Our highest concentration of wheatgerm oil
  • Non-greasy, fast-absorbing formul
 All sounds good right?
So onto how I felt about the product!
The packaging is pretty adorable and in general, is one of my favourite things about The Body Shop. I find they have a really nice vintage look with their products.

The Oil comes in a glass pink bottle with a dropper. 
I have to be honest here, the dropped had me completely baffled at first. Like how can one girl get so confused by a dropper?

So being the rubbish girl that I am, I did wonder how I was to get it on my face. Did I put my head back and drop it on there? Obviously, that was not the case.
All you need to do is drop a little bit onto the palm of your hand, give it a rub and then apply to the face.

At first I was a little wary of putting oil on my face, I don't need my skin breaking out anymore, but it really absorbs into the skin and feels pretty nice.
I found that it does leave a little layer of oil on your face but nothing that bothered me when I went to sleep.

As you can see it is very clear. It has a slight scent to it but I didn't find it overpowering at all. 

Once you have rubbed it to the skin gently, it pretty much absorbs in quickly. 

So after a good week of using this, I feel like my skin is a lot softer and even a little bit brighter. It's almost like it wakes up your skin.
At first, I may of put a little bit too much on and did have a slightly oily face in the morning but after that I knew exactly how much my skin needed.

Overall I was pretty impressed with this product and think it will be great for when the winter comes. 
If you are someone with dry tight skin, I totally recommended this to you. 
(Just don't be as stupid as I was with the dropped situation!) 

It's £13 for the 28ml bottle which is a bargain to be fair. Especially since you don't really need to put too much on, I think it will go far.

What do you guys think of oil based products? I may be a convert now!
Thanks to The Body Shop and Fort Kinnaird for giving me the chance to try this out.
My skin thanks you!

Till the next time
