I'm a big skincare fan. Aren't we all these days? It's cool to be into skincare just like it's cool to be into working out and 'eating clean' (note: I feel irrationally stabby every time that phrase is bandied about). I have really enjoyed incorporating facial oils and serums into my routine over the past year/18 months so naturally a hybrid between the two piqued my interest.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil (£12 from The Body Shop) is that guy. It is clear, very liquid, and has a slight oily texture once applied to the skin. It smells, not offensive, but does have a slight floral/talc scent that is potentially something to be aware of if you are overly sensitive. Most importantly though, this stuff is goooooooood. It was the afternoon after the first use, when I was sitting amidst a pile of textbooks with my face in my hands, that I realised how soft my skin was. I had a few stubborn dry patches (leaving the house is a rarity at the minute, HYFR study leave! so I didn't care enough to get rid of them) that disappeared overnight and upon further inspection my complexion was noticeably brighter.
I have had this for just over two weeks and it has slotted very nicely into my life. In fact, I'd go as far to say that this is my face oil of choice right now; I pick it ahead of everything else in my possession most nights. I implore you all to go out and buy it - it is twelve pounds. Twelve. Probably less considering The Body Shop run deals at the same frequency as DFS. Get it, gurl.
