Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer from The Body Shop. It claims to lift, awaken and soothe dull, tired and grumpy skin and encourages a healthy glow. It’s formulated with the Vitamin C rich camu camu berry which is found in the Amazonian forest. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps keep skin smooth and plump.
I’ve used this moisturizer a few times since it landed on my desk, in the morning and throughout the day. It’s a very lightweight, gel-like formula with a pleasant citrusy fragrance. It glides on easily and absorbs into the skin quickly.
I can definitely feel the effects of this moisturizer, especially when my skin has taken a bit of a beating. I applied some after getting home on Thursday (I flew to Cape Town for the day) and my face felt instantly refreshed. In terms of glow I can’t really say but my skin definitely did look more relaxed. The only issue I have is that it is a little light for Winter. Reapplication is necessary to keep the skin fully moisturized. I would definitely get this in the summertime and pop it in the fridge for a cool, juicy boost. Let me just add that Shuaib noticed it on my dressing table and he’s been using it now and he loves it! He has a pretty stressful lifestyle too so it’s the perfect moisturizer for him.
I would recommend The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer if you have a stressful lifestyle or if you are often in an environment that is artificially heated or cooled or polluted. If your skin feels dull or overworked this is definitely what you need.
You can find the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer at The Body Shop stores where it retails for ZAR155. You can also get your hands on the Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer (ZAR140) for a quick fix.
Until next time
Love and sparkles
