A while ago, I was offered the opportunity lớn try the newly available Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser by The toàn thân Shop. This is part of what seems to lớn be a revamped vitamin C range from the brand. I used to be quite a tín đồ of the vitamin C Skinboost Serum, although I’m not sure if it’s still available now. So, not having used much from TBS for a while, I agreed khổng lồ give it a try.

Part of the reason as well, was due khổng lồ the clever description on the tub which proclaims it lớn be for “Dull, tired, grumpy skin” Grumpy skin! Yes, I have that from time khổng lồ time LOL!

I dug into this after running out of my regular day moisturiser (which I happen to lớn love btw) & while I was going through a period of dull skin, no thanks to lớn stress and poor sleeping habits. I was hoping that the light gel texture would help my dull, tired & yes, very grumpy skin. The question of course is, did it?

Well, I’m sad khổng lồ report that it didn’t.

The Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser is a lightweight, gel-textured, water-based moisturiser that is quite perfect for our warm, humid weather. This is especially so if you have oilier skin & aren’t keen on using a moisturiser.

The key focus is to lớn hydrate your skin và give it a glow, thanks to the vi-ta-min C extract of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate which is said to be a more stable version of vi-ta-min C, lớn protect your skin by being an antioxidant, and to give it a glow, by brightening your skin.

It is also coloured orange, & has the scent of oranges; something that seems khổng lồ plague anything infused with vitamin C. I wish for once that it wasn’t so because the synthetic scent of oranges/citrus can be quite off putting. I found it a bit strong in this moisturiser, and also a bit sweet. But I will not deny that it is a refreshing boost in the morning, so if you lượt thích that, then its fine.

The packaging is far more luxurious than I remember body Shop products being packaged in. The heavy, almost glass-like tub it comes in has a nice heft và solid built, & it feels (and looks) good.

But that’s where it sort of ends for me.

Unfortunately, I found that the TBS vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser broke me out. It wasn’t anything too serious, but I now know my skin enough to know when a hàng hóa is giving me bumps under the skin; và this one did.

I also find the gel texture a little heavy, almost silicone in feeling (although I don’t seem to detect silicones in the ingredient list), which I’m not much of a fan of. I like gel-textured moisturisers in the day, especially when the days are long and hot lượt thích they are now, but I don’t like that silky-touch feeling to the skin.

So, unfortunately for me, my grumpy skin only got grumpier
