The body shop month ii: review; vitamin c skin boost instant smoother


A while ago, I was offered the opportunity lớn try the newly available Vitamin CGlow Boosting Moisturiser by The Body Shop. This is part of what seems khổng lồ be a revamped Vitamin C range from the brand. I used to lớn be quite a tín đồ of the Vitamin C Skinboost Serum, although I’m not sure if it’s still available now. So, not having used much from TBS for a while, I agreed khổng lồ give sầu it a try.

Part of the reason as well, was due khổng lồ the clever description on the tub which proclaims it lớn be for “Dull, tired, grumpy skin” Grumpy skin! Yes, I have sầu that from time to time LOL!

I dug inkhổng lồ this after running out of my regular day moisturiser (which I happen khổng lồ love sầu btw) & while I was going through a period of dull skin, no thanks khổng lồ áp lực and poor sleeping habits. I was hoping that the light gel texture would help my dull, tired và yes, very grumpy skin. The question of course is, did it?

Well, I’m sad khổng lồ report that it didn’t.

The Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser is a lightweight, gel-textured, water-based moisturiser that is quite perfect for our warm, humid weather. This is especially so if you have oilier skin và aren’t keen on using a moisturiser.

The key focus is lớn hydrate your skin & give sầu it a glow, thanks to the Vitamin C extract of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate which is said khổng lồ be a more stable version of Vitamin C, to lớn protect your skin by being an antioxidant, & khổng lồ give sầu it a glow, by brightening your skin.

It is also coloured orange, và has the scent of oranges; something that seems to plague anything infused with Vitamin C. I wish for once that it wasn’t so because the synthetic scent of oranges/citrus can be quite off putting. I found it a bit svào in this moisturiser, và also a bit sweet. But I will not deny that it is a refreshing boost in the morning, so if you like that, then its fine.

The packaging is far more luxurious than I remember Body Shop products being packaged in. The heavy, almost glass-lượt thích tub it comes in has a nice heft & solid built, và it feels (và looks) good.

But that’s where it sort of ends for me.

Unfortunately, I found that the TBS Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser broke me out. It wasn’t anything too serious, but I now know my skin enough khổng lồ know when a sản phẩm is giving me bumps under the skin; and this one did.

I also find the gel texture a little heavy, almost silicone in feeling (although I don’t seem lớn detect silicones in the ingredient list), which I’m not much of a bạn of. I like gel-textured moisturisers in the day, especially when the days are long and hot lượt thích they are now, but I don’t like that silky-touch feeling khổng lồ the skin.

So, unfortunately for me, my grumpy skin only got grumpier
