This serum in oil by The Body Shop has took the beauty world by storm the past couple of months since it’s launch. With all the major YouTube gurus and Caroline Hirons marking their stamp of approval for this serum in oil I had to give it a go.
My skin prefers an oil to a moisturiser of a night but I was a bit confused, what is a serum in oil? Well apparently it’s just that, a two in one that offers the benefits of a serum and oil in one product. Marketed for all the lazy bones out there (me).
The Body Shop say:

I just love the scent of the Vitamin E range by The Body Shop and this is no different it’s scent is so fresh and lovely (maybe a bit much of a scent) It’s a light oil that dries a lot quicker than any oils I have tried before. I am thoroughly enjoying using this and for £12 I don’t think I will be without a bottle now.
It`s a oil that I could use every night opposed to the thicker and more intense ones I own (Clarin`s Lotus Oil I am looking at you, You know I love you) This is targeted for night use but you could (if you want) so use this of a morning as it dries on the skin a lot quicker than usual facial oils.
My skin is super sensitive and if it doesn’t like something well it tells me loud and clear with spots and dry skin calling my face their new home (yak) but no complaints as yet. My skin is feeling rehydrated and smooth. My skin feels and looks pretty much the same as when I have been using other more high end oils. I really like it and I have been using it every night for the past 10 days and can highly recommend giving it a whirl for the bargain price that is £12. My only complaint about this product is all the fragrance ingredients jam packed in it. There is 10 YES 10 no wonder it smells so frigging good! Replace these with some ingredients that are more beneficial to our skin The Body Shop then I think this would just be perfecto.
