I've been using this product for just over a week now, and am pleasantly surprised at how well I'm getting on with it. It was an impulse buy, and while on the way home I was disheartened at how many negative reviews were floating around about it. I have cystic acne with a good helping of pigmentation scarring and was worried this moisturiser was aggravate my skin problems as others have mentioned.

The packaging is very hygienic, tube instead of tub. The bright orange certainly helps me find it in the mess that is my skincare cupboard! SPF 15 is generally a pretty standard level, any higher and I tend to find a white caste is left- which this moisturiser doesn't do.

Immediately after application it seems a little sticky but quickly soaks in, leaving a smooth finish much like after applying a primer. It reminds me of a moisturiser I had for dermatitis a few years back which was designed to dry with a protective layer of dimethicone. As this moisturiser does contain dimethicones, perhaps the same is true here. Either way, I tend to have to apply two layers to adequately moisturise my face which is always slightly annoying, doubling the amount of time before I can get on with the rest of my makeup routine.

I haven't had any breakouts from this product as of yet, a few more whiteheads than usual but less angry red bumps. I'm more than happy to trade the cystic acne for a few whiteheads for a while, to be honest. It sits well under my makeup as long as it's given enough time to soak in (approx. 10 minutes, same as most other moisturisers) and, despite combination skin, I haven't noticed any unusual excess of oil- even in my t-zone.

Overall I'm happy with this product so far, and so long as it doesn't start to play havoc with my skin in the next week or so we'll get along very well together. Price is, as always for The Body Shoo, a little steep but nothing overly shocking about 20-25 AUD for 50ml. If it continues as it has and lasts longer than a month or so I can definitely see myself rebuying.

NEVER AGAIN!
IT RUINED MY SKIN!

The reason i wanted to try this out because they say it will help with pigmentation on the skin.
I'y used this once and next day it was horrific!
The sales assistant at the body shop applied it on me and I had it on all day and night.
I've only used this once and next day it was horrific! I had cystic acne all over my face, redness, irritation and I was mortified! I never ever get acne on my face and this product did all of that.
It was so greasy and sticky on my face and I have DRY skin!

Only thing I liked about it is the citrus smell. If I could give it zero lippies I would. Fuck this.

well, i suppose cream with spf doesn't suit fr oily skin.
i feel like sooo oily and also i blame this, for giving me 3 huge pimple.
i give this three star, cause i am not sure whether it work it's job: to protect my skin from the sun damage or not.

I absolutely love this moisturiser. I've been having a recent turn around in thoughts about overly priced face creams and the miracle claims and endless ingredients.

I decided to go with nature and having researched amazing benefits of vitamins on the skin have been taking myself to the bodyshop. I have just fallen in love with so many of their products since doing so. This being one.

Never has my skin looked so youthful and bright with this cream. A little does go a long way. It's highly moisturising but hydrating. It smells fresh and orangey and uplifting. It feels and smells healthy and it delivers.

Along with the seaweed Matt moisture and pomegranate night face firming cream these are absolute favourites. These are all known for antioxidant properties which is the key to young healthy skin and vitamin c boosts collegan.

I just my skin looks great way better in fact than when I have spent fortunes on expensive cream brands.

Oh. My. God.
This stuff is amazing.
I have combo skin, which makes finding good moisturizers kinda difficult. But this one doesn't make my skin greasy at all, and makes my skin feel hydrated. Plus, after using it for a month or so, I've noticed that my skin is brighter and my acne scars seem to be fading! I'm so happy I found this and would recommend this to anyone!

I was surprised to see how many people where on the fence about this moisturerizer as I love it! I love the citrus-y smell and I feel like the cream is the right weight- creamy and luxe w/o being greasy and overly thick.
I have been using this during the day along with some of the other Vit C Body Shop products at night and I really feel like my skin is in good shape. Plus it has SPF 15 :)

This day cream is kinda thick.. I have oily skin and this really makes my face super shiny. I've been using this for about a month and I don't see any visible results, nor does my skin feel softer. The smell is quite strong so I'll recommend you go try it in the shops first before buying.

I like the packaging though, the squeeze tube makes it hygienic. And you only need a small amount to cover your face. I got it at 30+ SGD, which was a lil steep for me, but considering how long it can last, maybe it's not that bad. I'm quite undecided on this product, not sure if I'll repurchase this.

I have tried this for a couple of days and I simply dislike it.

I have oily skin and was actually recommended to use this product by the sales staff. God knows why! Even a tiny drop makes my skin feel oily, it doesn't feel like the product gets absorbed into my skin at all.

I believe my chin is starting to breakout because of this and it seems my skin is worse than a week before.

Not buying this again, will just use it as a handcream or something.

I finished my second bottle of this, but I won't rebuy it, since I had a feeling that it made my skin oilier and sweatier these last couple of months. Normally, I have quite normal skin, so this wasn't really the product for me, I guess. Good though, that it has an SPF of 15.
