The Body Shop Skin Defence


When The Body Shop released the Vitamin E SPF this week, I did an audible 'about TIME'. Well they've already brought another one out, and it's only Friday. :)

This new Skin Defence is SPF50 PA++++ and superbly formulated to be really light and almost water-like upon application. Used after moisturiser and under foundation, it's non-greasy and leaves no greasy film or residue. 

Out May - £16.00 for 40ml. More details to follow.

The Vitamin E SPF is already available here: TBS/VitEspf £14.00 for 50ml.

  1. Hi Caroline! Would this be alright to use on oily, acne prone skin? Thanks

  2. I'm literally just about to order the Zelens SPF. Which one do you think feels less 'SPF' like under makeup? Thank you :)

    1. Oh Caroline. Knowing how much you love Zelens (I think you worked with them at one point?) and the Dr I love you for your honesty. I've been thinking about getting the Zelens one precisely for the spf-less feeling....you saved me about 40 quid :) :) :)

  10. Is this formulated with sunscreen agent that is a physical or chemiclai/combination of of the both? Does it contain fragrance (my biggest issue with Body Shop and Pixie for that matter is their induction of perfume in products FOR NO REASON. I am highly sensitive to any fragrant ingredient, even "natural" ones, and would really like a post/video highlighting only sensitive skin friendly products! ANYWAY: end rant! LOVE the way you structure your blog posts! Keep it up!

    1. I bought this the other day and it does have a pretty strong scent,IMO. Also the 2nd ingredient is alcohol which I presume gives it its light feel and it made my face sting - shame as I love the fresh feeling

  12. I have a question about my skin. I don't know if anyone else has this problem or has dealt with this in the past, but I have been struggling with a rash/cracked skin in the creases of the sides of my nose for about two years. Originally it was an allergy to fluoride, so I no longer use fluoride. Then, it was an allergy to clindamycin, so I stopped using my prescribed spot acne treatment as well. But, it is back and nothing has helped. My skin is literally tearing open and no matter what I do/use it will not heal. If I use my prescribed lotion I get acne in there, which is very painful. If I use acne lotion there it dries my skin even more then tears more, which is very painful. I am beyond self-conscious about it and no dermatologist I have gone to has given me the time of day to figure out how to help me. If anyone has ANY suggestions I would really appreciate it. Lots of love, (and sorry for the long post) Sarah xox

    1. Hi Sarah, my sister has a similar issue with cracking but in her nostril. It's from issues with allergies and blowing her nose constantly. The only thing that has helped is a barrier cream for sensitive skin which hydrates and protects it from the elements. She is having good luck with Mary Kay extra emollient cream, it's about $10 US. It has a Vaseline type consistency but is mild and can be used on children. A very little goes a long way. Good luck, I hope you find the answer!

    2. Yes I also have allergies and I get cracking in my nostril as above poster. The most effective thing I have so far is Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm, which I am sure you can get in the US (I'm UK), to act as a barrier. It is inexepensive and may be worth a go x

  13. That sounds very painful and upsetting so I hope you get a solution to the problem. I am wondering if you might Google "seborrheic dermatitis" and "perioral dermatitis" and see if your symptoms match either. If you live in the UK then be pushy with your GP for a referral to a good dermatologist! Good luck.
