The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet

I'm already a massive fan of the Body Shop's Vitamin E range, in particular the Serum-In-Oil (which I mentioned in my 'Updated: Skincare Routine' blogpost, so with the launch of this bizarre yet fascinating sounding product, I just had to try it out as I'm always on the lookout for a new moisturiser.

LOVE the smell, but as for the texture, I can't quite put my finger on it. When you apply it to your skin it feels really bitty and slightly strange. I only use this in the daytime before I apply my make up and the bitty-ness doesn't seem to affect the application of my make up at all, so all is forgiven. I really appreciated using this a couple of weeks ago when it was boiling hot as the 'sorbet' aspect of the cream, well it's more like a gel, just felt so refreshing after a shower. It's super cooling however if that sounds unappealing to you, it only lasts a mere couple seconds so no biggie.

As for it's moisturising ability, I would say that it is moisturising but it's not the best that I've tried. It does sort the tightness I get in my skin after showering but I've not noticed any 'aqua boosting' or a sudden moisture surge after using it. It promises a 24 hour moisture quench, which I suppose I could agree with but my skin is pretty normal so I don't think I'd notice any dryness throughout the day anyway. Maybe if I had severely dry skin, it would have more of an effect on me. It's a good product, but I wouldn't be in any rush to purchase it again, I don't think.

Does anyone with dry skin find this helps? I'd be really interested to know!


  1. I have dry/de-hydrated skin & I tried this in the shop and it sort of just disappeared like I didn't put anything on!x

  2. I have this sorbet too and like the cooling effect, especially in summer, when the skin is often hot... :)
