One of my favourite things about blogging, is when a product comes into my life, that I have heard very little about and yet I fall head over heels in love with it. That is what has happened to me with The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser. This little baby is my new love.This Vitamin C moisturizer is said to give tired, dull and grumpy skin a little nudge back in the direction of the much lusted after glow, while at the same time hydrating the skin.
The Vitamin C moisturiser has a light weight gel formula that instantly sinks into the skin offering instant hydration. What I really like about it, is that the second I apply it to the skin, it offers a cooling sensation and leaves my skin feeling super fresh. Exactly what is needed for the humid summer months. I have actually found myself reapplying this a number of times throughout the day, because I love the cool fresh feeling that it gives the skin. I can’t sing high enough praise as to how this leaves the skin feeling the second it is applied.
Another plus for me is that because of the gel formula and it’s water base, it sinks into the skin really quickly and as a result it doesn’t interfere with my makeup. Instead it offers a hydrated soothe surface to apply my foundation onto. This is a real plus for me, as sometimes I don’t have time for my moisturiser to take a few minutes to sink into my skin.
The Vitamin C moisturiser left my skin feeling moisturised and super soft and really did give my skin a boost if I was feeling tired. I am really not a morning person, but I found that after applying this to my skin, I felt my skin wake up a little more. I know that sounds awful corny, but its true. I think the fresh citrusy smell helps with this too.One whiff of this and you will feel a little more refreshed.
This is said to be suited to all skin types, but I feel that if you are on the dry side, this might not give you as much moisture as your skin needs. However, if you’re normal or oily,this is going to be great for you.
I am still in two minds as to whether it gives my skin more of a glow. I am inclined to say yes, but it is hard to tell because for the past few weeks that I have used it, I have been in the sun, so my skin was lovely and glowing anyways. Although from the reviews I have read, bloggers are raving about the glowing qualities it brings to their skin.
Overall I really really love this little tub of zesty goodness. From the gorgeous smell, to the instant cooling sensation it gives your skin, The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser gets a huge thumbs up from me.
