The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost Review


Here is another product from The Body Shop. It is TBS Vitamin C Skin Boost. It costs INR Rs 1795 for 30 ml pack. It comes in a plastic bottle with a pump out dispenser and got a transparent cap. This has got a citrusy smell.

What The Body Shop claims about The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost ? : Best if you want to create instant smoothing radiance with a silky smooth finish. Its an ideal skin pick-me-up to enhance your glow and our favourite Vitamin C product!
Best for :-
  • Dull skin
  • Contains Amazonian camu camu berry, which is known to have one of the highest contents of Vitamin C in nature.
  • Antioxidant Vitamin C brightens skin.
  • Encourages collagen production.
  • Improves elasticity.
  • Works alongwith skin softening Vitamin-E to protect skin from environment.

How to use : Apply in an upward, circular motion after moisturizing for a smooth base and a healthy looking glow.

So i have been using this The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost for sometime now, everyday at least once. The texture is creamy when you take it on your palms, and once you apply on face it seems to be silky smooth as you start massaging on the skin. And it absorbs without a trace, flawlessly. The product is slightly orangish in color and dries up very fast. The smell vaporizes after a few seconds. This TBS serum wont moisturize the skin, and if you have dry skin, you would need a moisturizer to cover it up. I think this would suit more for the oily skinned people as it is non-oily and is not hydrating enough.

Talking about the packaging, its quite neat and simple and travel-friendly. The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost however does not have any SPF so you just cant use this alone if you are going out in the daytime. I think, this is fine if you are looking for a good primer or a makeup base. After applying the serum, skin gets smooth and the complexion looks clearer than before definitely, but cant really say anything about the radiance. I did not see any such visible glow, but yes the skintone becomes much clear and clean instantly. Overall, this is a nice serum to try out, but the price is a bit too much as i dont think this delivers anything more than a good makeup base and making the skintone look clean.
