SAY HELLO TO HAPPY SKIN FEAT. THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C GLOW BOOSTING MOISTURISER + THEIR INSTANT GLOW ENHANCER REVIEW !

 HEY ALL! 

The Body Shop's newest addition includes the Vitamin C range which features the Glow Boosting Moisturiser and the Instant Glow Enhancer. 

We all live busy, hectic lives. For some it's a 9-5 full time job and for others it's a full time motherhood role. No matter where you are with life, it's always important to recognise the healthy benefits of using Vitamin C in your skincare products. For the Body Shop, it meant to release two beauty products that would leave skin looking less dull and tired. You really want the skin to give off a nice, smooth and fresh looking glow. We all want our skin to look healthy, happy and glowing. 


HEALTHY. HAPPY. GLOWING.
JUST LIKE THESE.   
JAM PACKED WITH VITAMIN C. 
Dr Terry. Global who is the skincare expert for The Body Shop quotes: "The number one question I get from my clients is how they can get healthy glowing skin. They know this makes them naturally look more radiant and gives their confidence a boost."

Fact: Did you know by drinking one glass of fresh orange juice, it's a really healthy way to start your day. It's packed with loads of Vitamin C which boosts your skin's appearance. What Vitamin C does is that it helps to maintain the health of your skin. Not just oranges are considered to be packed with Vitamin C, but also Camu camu berry has apparently SIXTY TIMES the Vitamin C power of oranges itself. Wow! 

So keep on reading below to find out what I thought of both skin care products that are newly released from The Body Shop. x
THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C GLOW BOOSTING MOISTURISER (FOR DULL, TIRED AND GRUMPY SKIN)

Say goodbye to grumpy, dull, fatigued skin with our gel cream moisturiser. Apply every morning to help.

My first impressions of the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser was that it was presented in a really attractive jar and the consistency of it was in the form of a gel cream. It smells very fruity of berries and oranges which is so refreshing when applied onto the skin. My skin felt instantly rejuvenated and definitely hydrated after using this product. How I would use this cream gel is that before I apply on my make-up, I would apply the moisturiser beforehand in the morning before I head out. I used this product also this morning today and knowing that it's extremely cold and chilly out there, it kept my skin feeling super hydrated. 

The main benefits of using this Vitamin C Glow boosting moisturiser is that skin is instantly clarified making it glow even more. My skin had a really natural glow to it which was quite nice. There was no redness or irritations from using the product which was good. The product's consistency is quite lightweight and is of an orange appearance. It's in a form of gel cream which makes it absorb really fast when applied on the skin. I could feel my skin instantly being refreshed and hydrated. If you're always feeling tired during the morning, it's ideal to pop some of the Vitamin C cream gel onto your face, because instantly you'll feel more awake, refreshed and full of energy. The fresh dewy scent of the product is so pleasant that I love putting the cream gel on every morning. I've been using the cream gel for more than a week now and I have found my face looking much better and hydrated in appearance. If you're wanting to treat your skin's texture and appearance, then this cream gel is suitable for that purpose. 

Vitamin C helps boost collagen to the skin which improves skin's elasticity. It's definitely great for if your skin is feeling a little dull and needs some glow to its appearance. Vitamin C also helps to protect skin against any external environmental factors which may affect your skin. I love how the cream gel made my skin feel and I found no breakouts through using it under my make-up. It's definitely perfect for those who have oily to normal skin - and so far it's been a perfect moisturiser for me to wear on a daily basis. 

POSITIVES:
  • Water based moisturiser. 
  • Gently looks to hydrate the skin. 
  • Aids a natural glow to the skin. 
  • Leaves skin feeling plump, nourished and looking fresh. 
  • Cream gel absorbs really quickly on skin. 
  • Does not leave a greasy feeling. 
  • Scent is of citrus oranges which is lovely. 
NEGATIVES:
  • None found. Really impressed. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Look to apply a small amount under your make-up and foundation every morning. 
  • Don't forget to wear sunscreen on-top of the moisturiser. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 



THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C, INSTANT GLOW ENHANCER

This is the perfect smart product which includes skincare and make-up in one cute sized bottle. 
What the NEW Instant Glow Enhancer combines is a light moisturiser, a tinted cream and also acts as a make-up primer at the same time. That's 3-1 benefits you get from the little bottle of beauty which is worth investing into. The lotion itself is of a light orange appearance and very lightweight. When I applied the Glow enhancer onto my skin, ensuring that I covered the T-section of my face, I found my face to instantly glow and my cheeks looked very rosy. My complexion felt much smoother and looked softer in appearance wise. This is the perfect Glow Enhancer to use before prepping make-up onto your skin, or you can use this after your make-up routine where you just apply it onto the apples of your cheek, nose, chin and forehead. I love how it leaves a beautiful glowing finish to my skin and helps to even out tired and dull looking skin. I definitely felt this Glow Enhancer brightened up my skin a little more and made it feel and look more refreshing in appearance. The finish is of a soft matte look which means I can skip applying on powder for some days and instead just use the Instant Glow Enhancer. If you're looking for a product that works similarly to a BB cream, then look to check this one out because it will definitely suit all skin tones. Don' be put off by the colour itself!

POSITIVES:
  • Pleasant citrus scent. 
  • Lightweight.
  • Soft-matte finish. 
  • Acts as a primer. 
  • Evens out skin tone. 
  • Refreshes skin by making it appear more glowing. 
  • Can be used as a light moisturiser. 
  • Tinted cream.  
NEGATIVES:
  • None found. Really impressed. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Look to apply a small amount under your make-up and foundation every morning. 
  • Don't forget to wear sunscreen on-top of the moisturiser. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

HAPPY MIND = HAPPY SKIN
