Vitamin E Eye Cream | The Body Shop vs Boots


As nice as this lady's sunglasses are I like to feel confident without having to cover up my eyes (pretty sure that's not why she's wearing them but roll with it). Everyone and their dog raves about the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop and rightly so, but following the hype both Superdrug and Boots have brought out their own, much cheaper Vitamin E ranges. I picked up the Vitamin E Eye Cream from Boots to see how it compared to my go to Body Shop eye cream. 

Consistency // This is the first big difference. The Body Shop offering has a thin, easy to apply consistency making it super quick to use and meaning you can apply your makeup immediately afterwards; excellent for those like me who like to keep their morning routines speedy. In comparison the Boots equivalent is actually quite thick and takes longer to sink into the skin, but as a result feels really nice and creamy. This also means that you don't need to use quite as much of the Boots version so a tube would last you longer.

Ingredients // I'm no skincare expert so I only have one thing to say in this section; the Boots version has SPF in it, which is a huge winner in my eyes (har har geddit?), but The Body Shop one doesn't. This means that despite the longer application time, I am more inclined to use the Boots one in a morning when I'll be out and about in the sunshine (or at least outside, thanks England).

Price // I like to get my money's worth when it comes to beauty products so if I'm going to be paying for a more expensive version of a product I need it to be worth it. The Body Shop eye cream is £13 and the Boots equivalent is £3.99. 

In this case, I'll be sticking with the cheaper Boots version because I don't personally think it's worth shelling out the extra money for The Body Shop one.

Have you tried anything from either of these ranges? Would love to hear from you if you've tried out the Superdrug range too - what's that one like?
