THE BODY SHOP | Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer + Glow Boosting MoisturiserFriday, July 24, 2015
If you've ventured into The Body Shop over the past few days in NZ, you probably spotted these new bright orange products. Newly released into their Vitamin C range include a couple of glow and complexion enhancing products to combat dry, or dull skin.
Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser* | NZD $64.95
You can tell just from the pot that this is going to give the skin a bit of oomph that it might need during the Winter months. First off, it smells super fresh and very zingy with a distinct orange scent to it. The formula of the moisturiser is more like a jelly, which I actually really like it and I find it sinks into my skin pretty much instantly. It's not the most intensely moisturising moisturiser (how many times can I say moisturiser?), and I find for my oily/combo it is just right but I'm not sure how well it would fare on very dry skins. In the terms of 'glow boosting' it's not a major difference, but it's definitely not as dull as it usually is!
Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer* | NZD $48.00
The idea of this product is pretty great, but I'm still a bit on the fence about it. I naturally have quite a lot of redness in my skin so when I applied this [extremely scary orange] enhancer it didn't do anything to mask the redness, except for accentuating it a bit more. Obviously with foundation over top it dulled down the redness but for glow enhancing I'm just not sure it really worked so well for me. It's designed as a primer and it definitely adds a nice smooth canvas for makeup to go over top, which is something I really like about it. This would be a good one to get one of the staff members at TBS to try out on your skin.
Do you use any glow boosting products in your skin routine?
