This pretty much did nothing for my skin, and I found the smell too strong.
This is the worst product I've ever used. It went on smoothly and gave me a nice glow. But I woke up the next morning with cystic acne- which I never get! I had a scar on my face for the longest time. Turns out this stuff I full of silicone and other things that clog your pores.
It does not absorb well into my skin and causes my skin to clog upon consecutive use of 3 days or so. I realize it contains silicone ingredients and thus have since stopped using on my face but on my legs instead. It did nothing much - no glow or radiance on my face during that few days of constant use in daytime.
ok so here I am at 49, with t-zone issues, and this stuff has created 3 lovely HUGE whiteheads on my face, one on the chin and 2 by my nose.....haven't had a zit in 20 years...used it for a week and I feel like a mid-life freak.
I recommended this to a smoker friend because I know that their skins need more antioxident ingredients; mostly vitamin C and/or green tea.
She's applying it every morning before the moisturiser to combat free radicals and has told me that it's worked as her skin is more hydrated and less dull.
So, this is a very nice product for people who need to take care of their skin as they're active/passive smokers.
I've tried soooo hard to like this product, but every time I begin using it again, it breaks me out. It smells amazing ( a very light citrus smell), and might make a good primer for some people. I would not recommend it if you are acne prone.
I use this serum daily as a primer under my foundation. It smells wonderful, and actually does brighten my complexion. I've been using it in conjunction with other Body Shop products and my skin has really improved overall.
This is a review for the Body Shop's vitamin skin boost. This retails at around £12, which is a little pricey, but when on offer, can work out at a reasonable price. This product has great reviews, so I tried it hoping it would live up to it's hype.
My mum commented on how tired I was looking, where my sister (who uses this) recommended me to try this. As always, I went on the internet and read the raves about this product. I mixed this product with vitamin e oil - and my skin was transformed, whereby it looked so much healthier! My mum, who is really skeptical of these type of products, was telling me to purchase it! However, the lovely glow that I had was only temporary.
The serum has a lovely velvety texture to it, and it would make a great base for foundation. It also gives your skin a lovely glow, though only temporary.
Before the small bottle finished, I would apply it at night mixed in with vitamin e oil, as is recommended on the bottle (it states vitamin c works better in conjunction with vitamin e).
Conclusion: I don't think it did anything major for my skin in the long term, as my skin texture and tone was still the same from before I started using it, but because of the short term glow it provided when mixed with vit e oil, I would repurchase.
I had to take this back to the shop as it really hurt my face. Tried several times, as I actually like the smell and feel, however, unfortunately no improvement.
This serum smells yummy like oranges, it has a clear gel texture and it left my skin satin soft with a radiant glow. I use it be fore I moisturize. A also use a special Japanese technique applying it.
