The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost is perhaps one of the worst products from the popular beauty brand. I had been looking for a daily wear moisturiser that makes dull skin look bright and fresh, and leaves it looking radiant. The sales girl at the TBS outlet convinced me to purchase this, as a little test swatch on my wrist left it smooth and silky, and the tangerine fragrance was irresistible. But sadly, this expensive product was a waste of money.
I forgot to read the ingredients at the outlet, and this product is full of silicones which are harmful for the skin. Although the front label boasts of vitamin C rich Amazonian camu camu and Community Trada brazil nut oil, this product does little to bring a radiant glow. Upon application this serum based moisturiser gives a smooth and soft feel, but in the long run, this product made my combination skin breakout. This serum can also be used as a make up base but honestly, I didn't have the heart to try it out. Neither does it control oil, nor did it even out my skin tone, and it left my skin feeling irritated.
The product comes in a 30 ml bottle with a pump, but another con is that you can't see how much product you have used up. A single pump is enough to cover your face and neck, and will give you a 'temporary' glow, but it isn't worth to invest in.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost retails at $27 in the USA, and the product can be found in Britain for 15 pounds under the tag 'Vitamin C Skin Reviver'. Skip it, it's just expensive silicone with fragrance.
