Boots Vitamin E Body Butter
Posted August 27, 2012on:
I was flattered when a woman in supermarket complimented my smooth & fair skin recently, which probed basic skin care would be enough to maintain good skin. Protect against UVs, exfoliation, balanced diets, exercise and using moisturizer when skin is dry.
I hardly use body moisturizer nowadays since weather here is humid and I don’t sleep in air-conditioned room now. This body butter worked fine while I was in Bangkok but found it rather rich in all-year humid climate of Malaysia that it just sat on skin and never sank in properly.
Nevertheless, this was the product I had been using frequently when I was in Thailand. Strictly speaking it was not excited me but surely something that I felt worth of penny, ideally for slightly dry skin in mild weather.
It smells mild, vanilla-like, sweet and powdery. It is non-greasy, non-irritating and inexpensive. It retails THB150/200g normally, always on promotion for sure.
I am on the third jar of this. Many months ago, I had a small patch of skin rash on my leg, which triggered by certain foods that I allergy to (assumed). The skin rash healed slowly and no longer felt itchy after I reduced/stopped eating those foods but the skin texture looked a little bit plate-like and the skin tone appeared darker too. During the period, I had tried natural AA body butter, aromatherapy body massage oils and this Boots body butter on the area, obviously the AA body butter improved the skin texture best in my case. That would not be difficult to judge, ingredient make a difference.
Would I buy again? Frankly, may be. I continued searching for better one …
