The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet ~ #Review

For the longest time I thought I had both dry and oily skin.  I knew I had oily skin because by the afternoon my face gets shiny and oily.  I have to use paper to blot it to remove the excess.  However, I have flaky skin around my nose so that is why I thought I had dry skin.  I was incorrect until I had my skin analyzed and found out I do have oily skin but dehydrated.  Regardless I drink plenty of water, but the air is sucking me dry.  You might assume it would be only the winter but it is actually all year round.  If you have dry or dehydrated skin, you have to try The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet (50ml, $20).

The Body Shop Aqua Boost Sorbet

With a burst of refreshing coolness, a velvety soft texture and deep hydration, Aqua Boost Sorbet helps your skin beat the heat. Aquasphere technology – microscopic moisture spheres that act like tiny reservoirs and hold hundreds of times their weight in pure water – delivers 24 hour moisture. Mineral particles help to absorb oil and mattify. Contains wheatgerm oil, Community Fair Trade shea butter and soya oil.  For All Skin Types.

The Aqua Boost Sorbet is one of The Body Shop's latest products that made my skin feel from "Grrr" to "Ahhh".  It made my face extremely soft and smooth which I could not stop touching it.  I have been using it a few days and my nose has not been flaky as usual.  This has a gel like texture so it is light and fast absorbing.  Each containers hold 2 million Aquaspheres which is microscopic moisture spheres that act like tiny reserviours and hold hundred of times their weight in pure water.  It does not leave my face greasy but leaves a matte finish so it is prefect for either day or night wear.

  1. I too have oily skin with flaking around my nose area. I guess I need to take a trip to the BODY SHOP

  2. That's the exact kind of skin I have. I definitely want to try this product.

  3. The winter weather is definitely causing me to flake up lately! This product sounds lush!

  4. This sounds like a very nice product and I love the name they've used too. My skin's not too bad in the summer but the in winter......
