This product was a gift from my best friend when she came to visit me in the beginning of winters. I was very excited because who doesn’t know the benefits of vitamin E for skin and then the body shop products are always quite nice. I had also read decent reviews about this one. I am going to give you all a good insight into how this product actually is.

In Detail The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil Review
The packaging is a very classical serum oil packaging with a glass dropper to give you the exact amount of product as you want. I have used this religiously every day in the winter at night. I use almost 3-4 drops for my entire face and neck. I mean it depends, if I feel like my face is a but drier, I use a couple of drops more. It is a transparent serum so my husband does not mind it either 😛 It does have a little fragrance but it does not really bother me. It smells like a baby oil which initially gave me jitters that an expensive product like this, could it just be a diluted baby oil? To my satisfaction, that was not the case and the product actually was amazing.
I have a sensitive skin and I do experience occasional break outs. After applying this product, it sinks in very easily into my skin and of course there is this very thin layer of shine on my face but it is not something which makes me look extra greasy. Does not stain the sheets too. Next morning when I wake up, I feel like my skin feels so relaxed. It calms down any break outs on my skin. All the dry patches are gone and my skin feels much healthy and plum in a good way. I do apply this in the under eye area as well and it takes care of those wrinkles under the eyes, makes them less prominent. I really feel like a happy face whenever I have used this product in the previous night.
In short, I love this product specially if you are suffering from a little bit of dry skin during the winters, you must check this out.
