As have mentioned before, my skin has been suffering with the cold windy weather we have seen recently. I got this Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask in my advent calendar from The Body Shop so thought I would try it out.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask – My Experience
The lotion type consistency of the Vitamin E mask is a little strange. I am use to clay or peel off gel masks where this is just like a moisturizing lotion that you leave on for ten minutes before wiping off with tissue – no rinsing needed. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful antioxidant vitamins you can put on your face so I was looking forward to healthier skin after using it despite the consistency.
This vitamin E mask has a gel type cream consistency and lightness. It is not oily and it did not feel overly greasy on the skin. It is a pale pink colour (perfect for spa days) and has the regular scent of other The Body Shop Vitamin E products.
After using, you are meant to blend it into the skin then tissue off the excess. I found that I got a lot of build up if I do that, so I have been rinsed the mask off instead. It did not seem like the usual exfoliated skin build up, it was smaller and broke apart easily under your fingers, just dried cream I guess. Other reviews on The Body Shop’s website say they have left it on all night then rinsed it off in the morning and found that it gave better results than just leaving it on for ten minutes as directed.
My skin did feel soft the day after using it, but it was not long lasting compared to other masks.
Buy The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask
Available at all The Body Shop stores. $2 for a one time use sachet or $22 for 100ml. The 100ml is a much better option in terms of value (enough for 16 uses based on the size of the single use, but there is some waste in single use so maybe as many as 20 uses),
As with all The Body Shop products, you can use coupons online or wait for their 40% off skin care sale to buy it for less.
