Aloe Soothing Day Cream – The Body Shop – £10
The Body Shop’s Aloe Soothing Day Cream has a lovely smooth consistency and is very easy to apply because of how quickly it absorbs into the skin. I love how it feels light on the skin, yet is incredibly hydrating. It leaves my face feeling soft, supple and moisturised without it feeling greasy. As the name states, it really does soothe the skin. If you have any redness then this can greatly help calm it down. One of the main ingredients of the product is Aloe Vera gel. Aloe Vera is meant to work very well at calming redness and irritated skin, so is a great ingredient to have in your skincare routine. This cream is fragrance, colour and alcohol free, so it’s perfect for sensitive skin and for those who hate fragranced products. My skin can be quite sensitive so I have to be careful with what I use on my face, but I’ve had no problems with this day cream whatsoever. I love how it’s very, very gentle on the skin.
This product has no SPF in it, which might put some people off it. It’s important to wear SPF daily to protect your skin against harmful UV rays (which are still just as harmful in Winter). This doesn’t bother me as other products I use contain it, but it depends if you’re okay with having to use another product for SPF.
Overall, I’m very impressed with this moisturiser! It’s excellent at keeping the skin hydrated and is perfect for those with sensitive skin. When this runs out, I will definitely be repurchasing. You can buy this product here from The Body Shop for £10.00.
