{Chandni Reviews} Vitamin E Moisture Cream by The Body Shop

Hello lovelies!

It’s one of those unusual grey gloomy days in the Sheikhland. But in the city where in a few months , we are going to have a bit too much of sun, days like these are celebrated, enjoyed and thanked for!

And so, yours truly is making the most of this day sitting all cozy with a duvet, a hot cuppa green tea, Adele playing in the background, a to-do-list procrastinated royally for tomorrow and the laptop, getting all geared up to churn out some long pending blog posts to share with you all.

Talking about what kind of blog posts you can expect from me in 2016, well we are gonna talk about a lot of things beauty, fashion and food this year.

So, let’s begin, shall we?

Today I am reviewing the Vitamin E Moisture Cream by Body Shop. Now, here comes winters and my skin goes really dry. But to my rescue came this Vitamin E Cream by Body Shop that was hiding in my bathroom cabinet for months and that I had completely forgotten about. I am sure, all beauty bloggers can relate to me here because as a beauty blogger, I end up buying a lot of products and then forgetting about a lot of them but in 2016, we are gonna deal with this. (ah … the every year kinda resolutions)

Vit E Cream

Anyways, so I gave this cream a try. It has a strong but pleasant smell which eventually fades away. 50 ml of the product comes in a cute Pink jar. I had got it for AED 65. It is for all skin types.

The cream is pretty light and gets absorbed easily in the skin. Doesn’t feel greasy at all. It does what it says on the jar – yes it’s a great moisturiser for dry skin and I use it daily after cleaning and toning my face and before putting my makeup on. You just need a little of this product to do the job and so expect the jar to last you for good 1.5 – 2 months even if you are using it daily as your day moisturiser.

So, when I first used it, I did not feel a major difference in my skin until 3 days of using it, after which I felt that my skin has become softer and looks supple.

Vit E Cream

What I like the best about this cream is that, it doesn’t make your face greasy and so its great to apply before makeup which then glides on smoothly on the moisturised face.

What I don’t like about this product is its packaging. I prefer creams in a tube rather than a jar, where you have to put your hands in. Also the texture of the product is such that the jar tends to become a little messy and the protector lid inside is not able to do a good job at keeping the product off the cap of the jar.

But do I like this product? Yes!

Will I repurchase it? Yes!

Will I recommend it to a friend? Yes!

So, with that I would wrap up this post here and go out and enjoy the drizzles that have just blessed the Sheikhland! After all, it doesn’t rain everyday in Dubai.

Hope you are making every bit of sun or no sun in your corner of the world!

Until I see you next,


{Chandni Reviews} – Platinum Lift Face Mask Sheet by Skin Republic

Motherhood does bring in joy and happiness, you cannot compare with anything else in the world but it also brings in responsibilities incomparable with anything else. The sleepless nights and days too in my case (we shall discuss the details in some other post) not only exhaust you completely but have a huge impact on your skin. For me, one sleepless night and my face looks dead the next day and here we are talking about months. Going to a spa looks like a dream as doing the 24 hour job a new mommy does not allow you time for such liberties.

But where there is a will, there is a way. Last week, I made up my mind to start taking care of myself and no matter what, invest at least 10 minutes for myself.

I have been very unhappy with my skin of late and hence I have just started exploring different products and even home remedies to nourish and treat my skin.

And so when the Platinum lift face mask from Skin Republic landed on my desk, for a review, I was pretty excited to try it as I had been hearing great things about Skin Republic in the blogosphere.


The mask promised toning and firming of the skin. It says on the packaging that the face mask sheet containing skin filler ingredients soaks into the skin. The concentrated extracts supply nutrients and improve the skin’s hydration.


So, yesterday I put this mask to test. I cleansed and toned the skin as was directed on the packaging and then put the mask on my face and left it for 20 minutes which is the suggested time. The mask sheet is very easy to place and there is a generous amount of serum in it that as advised can be applied on the neck and/or hands after taking off the mask.

After I took off the mask, I gently patted my skin to absorb all the goodness and left it for another 15 minutes to soak in all the goodness.

I washed my face with cold water. My skin felt soft and supple immediately but I was expecting a rejuvenated difference, which I did not see immediately but after 3 hours, I noticed a visible difference. My face looked and felt hydrated and refreshed.


Today in the morning, my face looked brighter and my skin felt happier.

I am pretty happy with the results but it is definitely not for the times when you want to see an immediate and noticeable difference. On my skin, the mask did take steps to culminate into a difference that could be noticed. But also not to forget, that it could be different for different skin types. Overall, I think this mask is worth trying. Also it says on the packaging that it is most effective when used twice a week for the first month and then as required.

So ladies, do give this product a try and let me know your thoughts on it. You can also connect me on Instagram.

Until I see you next,

Stay beautiful!
