ALOE PROTECTIVE SERUM

The Body Shop Aloe protective serum has a gorgeous thick consistency and instantly soothes when applied to the skin. After washing my face and removing all traces of makeup, I like to apply this before my moisturiser and find it perfect for hydrating and calming the skin beforehand.

Pre-Moisturiser: Aloe Protective Serum c/o
It’s very refreshing and smells very warming and soothing, best described as warmly baked oats mixed with aloe plant gel, it has a nice relaxing scent and just smells divine! The thing I love about this is the fact the serum is thick but when applied to the skin it instantly soaks into the skin to leave a beautiful dewy glow and even complexion. 
 
This sorts out redness and hydrates the skin, I also find it makes my skin silky smooth before applying my moisturiser. It’s very luxurious and you only need the smallest amount to get great results! The pump dispenses just the right amount of product and doesn’t clog up like other dispensers I have used in the past from different brands! I could definitely see this lasting a good couple of months at this rate. 
 
Perfect for all skin types during the colder months to hydrate, calm and soothe the skin from harsh weather conditions, this works even better for sensitive skin types, as it’s fragrance and alcohol-free. Like I mentioned above this does have a slightly warm, soothing fragrance to it but nothing strong or irritating. 
What’re your thoughts on this?  Have you tried anything from the Aloe collection?

    I LOVE the Body Shop. This is high on my “to try” list. I’ve always been addicted to their tea tree products. I’m sure I’ll feel the same about this one. (:
