The Review | The Body Shop's Vitamin E Eye Cream


Having turned 20 not so long (or kind of long) ago, I made a promise to myself to start establishing a better skincare routine so that by the time i'm 30 my skin look as youthful as ever, and as most people probably know it is believed that the key to that youthful looking skin is a good eye cream (and spf but that is a whole different ball game). So with that I purchased this little thing, The Body Shop's Vitamin E cream.

What drew me to this product was the idea that it claims to reduce the appearance of dark circles, along with fine lines and puffiness. I have struggled with dark circles almost all of my life, no matter how much sleep I get or water I drink I always have them and I have had to accept the fact that they are here to stay. So anything that claims to reduce the appearance of them I am more than willing to try.

So did it work? Yes, it makes a difference but it is not miracle worker. For 13 euro I of course wasn't expecting my dark circles to completely vanish, but I am happy with the slight difference it has made to them. The area around my eyes seems to be more hydrated and with that plumper so the darkness is slightly less noticeable. I have also noticed that having used this the night before, my make up goes on easier around my eyes and it hardly creases throughout the day. I will definitely continue to use this product, but I think I will keep a look out for any other creams that could give me better results. However, having purchased this I can now confirm that I am an eye cream convert and for anyone looking for an affordable cream that does the job I would recommend trying this, or any of the other eye creams available in The Body Shop that may tailor to your needs a little better.

Has anyone tried this or a similar eye cream before? I would love to hear your thoughts!

  2. I've never tried this eye cream before but it sounds like a great product. I'm someone that struggles from dark circles as well so I might give this a try after my current one is done.

  4. Definitely worth investing in eye cream at an early age, I wish I was at 20! The Vitamin E range is always a winner from the Body Shop xx

  7. I'm using a Drops of Youth eye roller by The Body Shop at he moment and loving it for the reduced effect of dark circles, though like you've said, they're not miracle products! Great idea to establish a good skincare routine now by the way :) Have a lovely week ahead!

  8. I don't think we can ever really expect miracles from any products can we? But it's such a bonus when they make some difference!

  9. I've considered buying this eye cream so many times. I have used eye creams for a few years now but still not found the right one for me. I need an anti ageing one but also something that hydrates and reduces dark circles as mine are getting worse as I get older. I'm glad you found it at least somewhat helpful and it really is a great price. Great review and post! And by the way thank you for commenting on my blog, I really appreciate it. I followed your blog on Bloglovin and can't wait to read more. Katie xx

    1. Oh I definitely think this will do the job for you, as I said it hydrated the skin under my eyes, which makes my make up go on so much easier x

  10. I've been wondering how this works- especially for those who want to use it as more of a preventive care product. I'm glad it has helped! For the price I think that's a really good deal :)

  15. I got a sample of Benefit's eye cream, and I've been using it for a couple of weeks now, but I can't say it's done anything special.. not sure if I even can see results in such a short period of time, but I guess we'll see :) Great review xx

  40. I've tried a few months ago. Again, it's great but it doesn't make wonders. I have a puffy under-eye area and I saw no difference about that.
