Packaging:- The face wash comes in a cute baby pink colored opaque plastic tube with a transparent flip opening. The cap is sturdy and can be carried while travelling without worrying about product spillage. I really like the girlllyyy soft pink color of the tube


My experience with The Body Shop Vitamin-E Gentle Face Wash:-

The Body Shop Vitamin-E Gentle Face Wash has rich creamy texture which is slightly thick. The color of the face wash is same as the tube yes its baby pink. How cute is that! The fragrance is mild and similar to other products Vitamin-E range. I like its fragrance and find it very pleasing.

It doesn’t lather much due to its gentle formula but cleanses up my skin pretty well and also removes the removes the make-up just like any creamy cleanser. I used it to remove my eye make-up too and guess what! it doesn’t sting into my eyes that proves that it is mild and can be safely used by sensitive skin too.



The face wash rinses away easily and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without any dry/stretchy feeling. I find it moisturizing for my dry skin and keeps the dry patches that haunt me in winters due to normal foaming face washes. Despite being moisturizing and creamy it is gentle on my skin and doesn’t clog my pores or break me out.

I use it along with the TBS Vitamin-E night cream in winters and together they keep dry-patches at bay and moisturize my skin well.
