The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist Review

Hello everyone,

A few months ago when I was at the The Body Shop store to get my shower gel, I bumped into this while randomly going through the counters. I was really intrigued because it was a facial mist (if you don’t know, I love facial mists), it was from my favorite The Body Shop Vitamin E range (especially the TBS Vitamin E cream) and the thing that mostly attracted me was the 50% off written on the counter.

So read to know if The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist, a random buy of mine, is worth buying or not…

The Body Shop says:-
“A quick skin pick-me up and excellent for setting make-up. Spritz it on for instant refreshment, moisture, and protection. With a delicate rosewater scent.”

INR 895 for 100ml. I bought it when it was on discount at The Body Shop.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist:-

PACKAGING and PRODUCT Description:-
Lets start with the packaging. It is a simple, sturdy pale pink plastic bottle with a transparent cap and spritzer. Love the fuss free packaging.

The product is itself clear liquid and 2-3 sprays are enough to cover my entire face. It has a strong rose fragrance which vanishes within a few minutes.  I have a sensitive nose, but this one doesn't really bother me.  The product takes about 30 minutes to fully set when used on clean skin and about a minute when used over makeup, which I don’t think is too bad.

The first impression:-
The first time I used this, it was at The Body Shop store and was a tester. It was a scorching, itchy summer day and as I sprayed this on my face, I was instantly rewarded with a very comfortable and soothing feeling and the itchy feeling I was having for a while just vanished. I bought the baby home and since then I have been using this every now and then.

When I use/ When you can you as well-
·         Need a moisture boost? Spray once or twice and pat with fingers.
·         Feeling tired? Spray to feel refreshed instantly.
·         Use it as a primer before makeup.
·         Use it to set makeup for that dewy finish.

An absolute love or was just an infatuation!
As I said before, I love face mists and that was the main reason for buying this, and that’s how I love using this the most. It feels really refreshing in the hot summer days, freshening up my whole face and makeup. Sometimes I just use it as a moisturizer after washing my face, the moisture boost it provides without making my skin look oily and sticky is incredible. It didn’t break me out or formed any closed comedones. It keeps my face soft, supple, glowy and hydrated. The dewy glow is impeccable. While sometime I use this for setting makeup as well, but I just love to use this alone. However, you can definitely use this over your makeup for that dewy finish , just keep the quantity in mind. Overdoing can melt and move your makeup. When I used to set my makeup, my makeup stays longer and looks more natural. I prefer to spray, wait for few seconds and then gently sponge for a seamless finish. I also love the fact that it is a clear liquid.

So overall, this is love

WORDS of CAUTION: The Potential pain:-
I have normal skin that becomes a little dry in winter and a little oily in summer (if that makes sense) and this product suited me very well. But while going through reviews on Google, I found that many people were complaining of pimple attack after using this. So I would advise to use it wisely. Just don’t overuse. Keep the quantity in mind; too much can lead to pimple attacks and can also cause your makeup to melt down. So don’t use for than 2-3 sprays.
Also, don’t forget to close your eyes before spraying this on your face.

Are you the ideal person for this product?
If you need a face mist with moisturizing properties, then this is your thing. I would personally recommend this mostly to people with normal and dry skin. Oily skinned beauties, try to get hold of 1 or 2 sample sachets first to see if it suits you. Or buy when there is a discount, that way it won’t hurt much if it doesn’t work on you. Also this wont suit your need if you are person who loves matte finish.

Lets Sum Up the PROs and CONs:- (Again? Yes, because all the ranting wasn’t enough)
What I absolutely love about The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist:-
Gives an instant moisture boost.
Refreshes skin.
Gentle on skin.
Gets absorbed fast.
Skin feels soft, supple.
Doesn’t feel greasy.
Imparts a healthy glow.
Works as a primer before makeup.
Can be used to set makeup as well.
Adds a dewy finish to your makeup.
Decent fragrance.
One bottle will last for about 3 months even if used regularly.
Nice, travel-friendly packaging.
Easily available.

What you may not like about The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist:-
It might break you out, especially if you have an oily skin.
If you are looking for a matte finish, this isn’t for you.

Closing Ceremony: MY FINAL THOUGHTS:-
A lovely, lightweight moisturizing facial mist, perfect to add a moisture boost to my skin, refresh face on the go and also to set make-up. The bottle is travel-friendly, the spray is very fine, the fragrance decent. I have used this throughout the year and it seriously fits every season. It makes my face adequately moisturized, gives a dewy finish without looking greasy. I carry this in my bag, and love it’s refreshing touch. 
The spray dispenser is a beauty.

4/5 :)

  1. I haven’t tried this one but I love Caudalie Beauty Elixir - so refreshing in the morning

  2. I've never tried a face mist. This sounds nice and soothing! Great in depth review!

  3. I love the idea of a face mist with rosewater! I didn't realize you could pat it down after spraying - thanks for the tip!

  4. I like that it can also set your makeup!

  5. I'm not a rosewater person but I hear so many good things about TBS facial products. I've used their masks with success.

  6. The only facial spray I’ve really tried have been Mac Fix+ for setting my makeup and I’ve also tried the Evian spray.

    I may have to check out this one!

  7. I only have 1 face mist and it's just a makeup setter. But this sounds fantastic!

  8. Love things with Vitamin E now I just wish they'd leave out the rose!

  9. Loved reading your review! I don't mind facial mists -- I like them...but my problem is remembering to use them, lol

  10. Thanks for the word of caution! Vitamin E is a fairly thick substance so I can see that it can potentially be pore clogging for people who are acne prone.

  11. The scent is a con for me even if it was one of your pros. I enjoy face mists as well, especially over the summer, but I don't think this one would work well with my combo skin. Thanks for your thorough review!


Hello, pour in your wonderful thoughts; would love to hear from you.
