The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser

The Body Shop Vitamin C moisturiser is something I’ve had on my wish list for a while, so when I was sent a pot to try out, I was pretty chuffed!

I love their vitamin E range, and was intrigued by this one which claims to give tired, dull skin a boost and healthy glow.


Aqua/Water (Solvent), Alcohol Denat. (Solvent), Glycerin (Humectant), Propanediol (Viscosity Modifier), Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer (Viscosity Increasing Agent), Ethyl Macadamiate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Isostearyl Lactate (Emollient/Skin Conditioning Agent), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance Ingredient), Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil/Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Sodium Hydroxide (pH Adjuster), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Sodium Hyaluronate (Humectant), Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Antioxidant), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), Hexyl Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Skin Conditioning Agent), Myrciaria Dubia Fruit Extract (Skin Conditioning Agent), Citral (Fragrance Ingredient), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Malic Acid (pH Adjuster), CI 15510/Orange 4 (Colorant), CI 15985/Yellow 6 (Colorant).

The texture of the cream is quite gel like, rather than your typical cream. I was a bit worried at first that it would sit on top of my skin rather thank sink it, but it took to my skin pretty well after about 20 seconds of an initial ‘tacky’ feeling.

I wouldn’t say it did an amazing job at making my skin ‘glow’, but I did see a slight difference and my skin always feel moisturised after using this.

It has a slight fresh, citrus smell. But it’s not over powering.

I’ve used all of this pot up now and I must say, I enjoyed using it. I think I do prefer the vitamin E alternative, mainly because like the way the vitamin E one smells more. But if you’re wanting to give your skin an extra boost in these awful autumn months, then this one might be for you!

    I love the colour, but I’m not sure if that is the best to approach to buying a new moisturiser.

    I have a huge TON of skincare to finish so I don’t think I will be purchasing anything new soon but I’ve read pretty good reviews on this!

    They have quite a few products in this range that I want to try. Vitamin c I would imagine would be quite acidic but this sounds quite nice. I love their vitamin e cream which is useful for so many things especially scars Lucy x
