This Mother’s Day treat mom like a queen and show your appreciation by giving her the gift of gorgeous skin! The Body Shop is celebrating a British icon- the original Queen Bee herself by artfully packaging their best selling vitamin E range in a fun, regal design.
If you read the ingredient list on your skincare bottles like I do then chances are you will see the inclusion of vitamins, oils and other nutritive properties. Vitamin E is a powerfully versatile antioxidant that protects and repairs skin by decreasing free radicals that damage collagen, cause dryness, fine lines and wrinkles- everything mom wants to avoid!
The Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet has a refreshing gel-cream consistency and velvety soft texture to quench dry skin for up to 24 hours. The lightweight moisturizer absorbs quickly with no greasiness and smells like summer in a jar with a fragrant burst of flowers. It is also packed with skin conditioning emollients, rich shea butter, wheat germ and soybean oil to efficiently hydrate without making you look shiny as the day heats up. If you spend a little too much time frolicking in the sun and need something to rejuvenate and soothe this formula cools on contact and gently softens. The Aqua Boost is suitable for all skin types and retails for $20.00.
The Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil is a wonderful addition to your skincare routine and as you get your beauty sleep it deeply penetrates so you wake to radiant, healthy looking skin. Vitamin E also helps heal scars, lighten brown spots and recharges the complexion with a boost of moisture. Although this lush serum-oil concoction provides long-lasting hydration it does have a dewy finish that is discernible on the skin so I like to apply it early in the evening after cleansing so that it dries and soaks in before bed. The oil replenishes without causing breakouts and I love the handy medicine dropper! The nutritive formula also works wonders on dry cuticles and rough cracked heels, it retails for $28.00
The Vitamin E Eyes Cube is an anti-fatigue stick that revives and refreshes by diminishing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and unsightly bags. It is a fabulous moisturizer for the sensitive skin around the eyes and it helps reduce the look of fine lines and crow’s feet for smoother, youthful looking skin. The formula is very creamy and melts in effortlessly. You can apply it directly from the tube or dab it on with a finger and I like to rub some on my eyelids to prevent dryness which improves the look of eye makeup. The handy little tube is ideal for travel and retails for $15.00.
If you want to kick things up a notch and really give mom the royal treatment there is also a limited edition Mother’s Day tote that includes the vitamin E body butter, bath puff, pink grapefruit shower gel, Eau de toilette, body scrub and the best selling vitamin E moisture cream- an $80.00 value for just $30.00!
