The Body Shop released two new and innovative products for summer, one of the products is the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet, and the other one is the Body Sorbet. The common innovation between the two products are the millions of micro bead-like things in the ingredients which melt into the skin and provide a cooling sensation. The scent I have is mango and I have always been a huge fan of the Body Shop mango scent.
I love using this after a shower now that the weather is warmer. It is light, cooling, and feels refreshing on the skin. While it doesn’t absorb quickly compared to cream-based moisturizers, it doesn’t leave any filmy or sticky feeling on the skin. It’s also moisturizing enough for the summer, since it’s less dry and more humid.
I would also recommend checking out this product in the pink grapefruit scent, which I also love and would be perfect after a morning shower since the grapefruit scent is so invigorating.
The Body Shop Body Sorbets are available in five different “flavours”: mango, satsuma, pink grapefruit, strawberry and moringa. They’re out in stores now and priced at $15 for 200mL.

On a side note, I’ve tried the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet as well and unfortunately it didn’t sit well with my skin and I experienced a bit of a breakout, dryness and redness. On the one night I did use the Vitamin E Sorbet, I felt that it wasn’t moisturizing at all, even after a hydrating toner and serum. The menthol in the ingredients also agitated my sensitive skin and I felt a bit of stinging. Unfortunately if you do have sensitive skin like mine, I can’t recommend the Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet to you.
