Dear The Body Shop,
Thank you for inventing your little pot of Aloe Soothing Day Cream. I strayed from using it when I became skeptical of its powers, but immediately regretted my decision. Once I switched back to using your Aloe Soothing Day Cream, any damage that had been done to my skin by trying a drugstore brand – including hideous dry patches around my nose and cheeks – healed in days. Days. Within one week they were completely gone and you would never know my skin had been peeling horrendously from a bad decision.
Just a little dab erases any dryness or irritation on my sensitive skin. When the redness on my cheeks flares up, your cream calms it down. My skin is never greasy or oily. A little bit goes a long way. It is so light and absorbs so quickly, that it’s hard to believe it actually works. It has never interfered with any makeup I’ve worn after applying it. I don’t smell like an old perfume after putting it on, either.
The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep cosmetic database scores The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream as a 1 on its level of toxicity and danger. A 1. As in, it’s basically water and aloe and you can’t get much more natural than that. Making your product baby friendly, pregnancy friendly, TTC-friendly, fertility-friendly, earth-friendly. Awesome.
Oh, and your products are made from fair trade farmers, which doesn’t exploit workers in third world countries. Thanks for that, too.
Your price, at $15, doesn’t break the bank and your stores typically have great deals so that it’s even less expensive.
If I ever cheat on you again, The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream, it will be because I will need a moisturizer with an SPF if my makeup doesn’t have any. But fortunately, I see you have an Aloe Soothing Moisture Lotion SPF 15. That’s very good news.
Thank you for this all around awesome product. I will never need to search for a moisturizer again.
