The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream Review!~ ♥

Hello Sweethearts ~
Hope you're having a lovely Monday so far!

Now that I'm 20 years old I figured out that I should start taking care of my "Aging" thing
I know I'm not that old, but the sooner the better.
I didn't start using eye cream just because I was afraid of fine lines or aging, I started using it cause I've noticed that my eyes really do need an eye cream. So a while ago I wasn't sleeping that much or that good!
And then it all started, dark circles, a little bit of fine lines, and super duper dry under eye (that scared me the most lol)
Then I decided to start using an eye cream, and because most of them are on the expensive side, I went with The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream ($18.00)
Yes it wasn't the most inexpensive one but, I trust The Body Shop brand and I've been testing this eye cream since 3 months ago.

What this eye cream claim to do ~A moisturizing eye cream that helps protect the delicate skin around the eye area, reducing the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. Contains moisturizing shea butter and rose hip oil.
My experience does not agree with that much.


The packaging is nice, it is light weight and really easy to carry around especially for those who travel  it will be quit comfortable to travel with cause it is tiny and wont really break.What I love most about the packaging Is that it comes in a tube which makes it squeezable (What a word but oh well..) which means I can perfectly control how much product I want to use, also tubes are great cause you can get the product  without getting bacteria all over the it like when its in a jar.

To use this product you really just need a small amount, like just a tiny dot for each eye and that little will go along way, trust me. So I just take a dot and dab it under my eyes with my ring finger, gently.
It feels so moisturized and nice on the skin, and it does absorb really well, and it wont feel thick under your eyes.
instead, it is really light weight and it will make the skin really smooth and hydrated.
And God, I've been using the same one for 3 months and this product is still going strong and I don't think I will run out anytime soon.


After almost 3 months of use I can really say that I love this product and it's on my hit list but , the thing is as I mentioned before this product did not do everything that it claimed to do
After a couple of weeks of using it I saw a huge difference under my eyes, it looked more hydrated and soft.
For the "puffiness" and "fine lines" parts , I can't really give you my opinion on both cause I don't have them, but when I smile I do have a couple of fine lines under my eyes that usually my concealer sets in , but did this eye cream remove that? not really, but it does look better. Maybe I didn't find a huge difference because I'm still young, but other than that , it didn't do much.
For my dark circles, I do have less dark circles now because I've been sleeping a little bit better, so I don't really think that product did much for my dark circles but it looks slightly better now.

Now you probably wonder why on earth do I still like this eye cream??
I know it is confusing, but this really did a great job for my under eyes skin. My under eye skin used to be super dry and I even have a little tiny small pumps over there because it used to be so dry. Then when I started to use this eye cream it did a great job to give back moisture and hydration to my under eye, now my under eye is smooth ,looks healthier and better.


Overall, I really love this eye cream and I would recommend it for teenage and early 20's ladies, but if you're looking for anti-aging , or to help dark circles, this won't be for you.
Other than that, I love and enjoy it , it worked great to make my under eyes looks healthy and smooth.Part of me wish if this would help with dark circles more, cause if so then this would be a perfect eye cream that I will use for ever.
Last thing to mention that this product did not give me any breakouts and I haven't noticed any bad reaction from my skin, so its all good.

Would I repurchase it?? 
Yes, I know I will always have this as an option

Will I recommend it?? 
Definitely, but as I mentioned, only for teenage and early 20's ladies.

I would rate this 3.5/5
I wish it helped more with dark circles


Have you ever tried this product before??
Are you going to give it a try??
Also please let me know what is your favorite eye cream??!
Cause I would love to give it a try.


Best Wishes~
