I have always been a fan of serum and oils to apply at night but never gotten on really well with any particular brand or type of product. They have either done nothing spectacular for me, leading me to forget about them and letting them gather dust until rediscovered again or they've broken me out into a cluster of white heads the very next day. This, fortunately, did none of that. Often raved about by bloggers, skin experts and magazines, this is apparently the star product from The Body Shop's Vitamin E range. Although I've heard the entire range is to die for and is full value for money, even better, this baby here can give fifty quid serums a run for their money.
Loving myself a good old bargain, I slathered my skin in this quenching formula for a good few nights and guess what, I think I'll repurchase for life! I don't quite get the name 'serum in oil' as I feel they are already similar textures but regardless, I do get what they're trying to say. Some people like light weight serums in the evening and some, hydrating oils and this hits the perfect balance between both. You only need one drop from the dropper and it's enough to cover your face and neck. With the amount of slip it delivers, it calls for a quick 3 minute face plumping facial at least.
The serum is lightly hydrating initially and is great for getting rid of taut skin or any dry spots instantly. I love how it leaves skin looking well rested, plump and nourished in the morning. As if I've just started eating clean, drinking detox teas, working out and indulging in regular facials - life cheat much? Hah! It's got a high dose of wheatgerm oil which is packed with anti-ageing benefits, antioxidants and a bunch of vitamins. Once on, you don't need any more skincare on top of this for the rest of the evening. For £13, I seriously think they've got the price wrong for this one. Add this to your serum collection even if you have combination-crazy skin like myself. It will work just as well.
