The Body Shop's: Vitimin C Glow-boosting Moisturiser Review

Hello Everyone I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year! I,m sat here typing from my new Flip case tablet keyboard, and its magical. Today I'm writing a nice little review for you, so I can get back into the blogging flow of things, after the hectic holidays flipped everything upside down.

I have struggled with dry skin for quite a few years now, and this time of year is the worst. You know the feeling? Where your skin feels as delicate as china, and you avoid touching it in fear your entire face will just break into tiny pieces, it screams MOISTURE at you! If your one of those people who ignore those thirst quenching screams, Body Shop's new-ish vitamin C range could be for you. Its targeted at people who experience dry, tired, dull skin, with high claims to brighten and revive your skin, giving you a healthy, glowing complexion (that would make my year).

For a few months now I have been enjoying using their glow-boosting moisturiser. Even though I haven't seen any major differences in my skin, there are definataly still some benefits to be found in using this product.

For one it feels heavenly on your skin when you first apply it. It gently cools your skin, and leaves it feeling all lovely and smooth. The cream is thin and light, and it sinks in almost straight away, so your not left with a horrid sticky residue. A little bit definately goes a long way, so it lasts a little longer than most, however I do wish the pots were bigger. This product also smells like oranges, which to me there's nothing better, but if your not a fan, i'd probably stay clear. Though the scent itself is fresh and in noway overpowering. And lets not forget the reasonable price tag of £16, though I know its not the cheapest, and I wouldn't buy it for every day use, I can't deny I loved just using it, especially in the mornings, when it feels particularly refreshing.

Though I haven't noticed any major long term changes, it is genuinely a nice moisturiser to pop into your skincare routine. Perhaps this moisturiser would perform better when used along side some of the other products in The Body Shop's vitamin C range, which I am very eager to try out. But my hunt continues for the best moisturiser for dry skin.

What skin saviours have you all found? I'd love to find something spectacular that I've been missing out on all this time.

Also how are you liking the images? I'm liking my new 50mm lens, and totally recommend adding one to your kit if your wanting to improve the quality of your photos x
