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.

The texture of the cream is quite gelled 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 slightly fresh, citrus smell. But it’s not overpowering.
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 I 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!
