What we say:
‘The “Energetic Face Protector” was quite a name for a moisturiser, so I was quite looking forward to seeing what it could do for me. I have a 2-year-old son, who doesn’t believe in sleep so am in need of any and all beauty help that promises to energise and hydrate my skin. Over to the Peruvian Maca root and Community Trade Brazil nut oil… it has a nice firm texture, with a fresh pleasant smell (thanks to the Community Trade aloe vera). I know I am definitely helping the South American Community traders so I felt quite socially responsible. Unfortunately, I over heat with sticky moisturisers and found that due to the SPF it was a little too oily and didn’t sink in nicely. Although much lighter than other sunscreens, I think I’d enjoy it if it was possibly an SPF 30 but at 15, it needs to feel a bit lighter.
‘If you’re a fan of The Body Shop, it’s another wonderfully smelling socially responsible product – unfortunately just not for me.’
