The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost Instant Smoother: Skincare Review

Smooth, soft skin is what everyone desires. However, when the exact opposite outcome occurs, consumers frequently find themselves wondering why their skincare regimen isn't producing the desired results. And like everyone else, I have skin imperfections such as uneven texture, dryness, flakes, pimples, or dullness. For these reasons, I'm looking for a skincare routine that will help me address these problems. I definitely can't wait to try The Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost Instant Smoother, which my friend suggested.

According to The Body Shop, this product is a light, refreshing serum with mineral glowing particles that boosts skin’s smoothness, radiance, and vitality leaving it soft to the touch. The product is also infused with Amazonian Camu Camu berries which help to invigorate the skin and protect against damaging environmental elements.

Utilizing this product was different for me than using a clear, watery serum that I had previously used. I can feel the product in its package, so when I look at it, I honestly believe that the contents will be thick and rather dry. Despite this, I can't wait to use it. Since my friends use this product to reduce pores and blemishes, I've heard a lot of positive things about it. And because I currently have those type of skin condition, I thought this would work wonders for my skin and tried it right away the night I got it.

The product includes vitamin C—which, I believe, everyone can agree is the color that corresponds with vitamin C—and because of this, I feel that the packaging truly lives up to the name of the product. I also appreciate that it comes with a pump instead of the standard dropper, since I believe the product's thickness will prevent the dropper from extracting content if it is utilized. The product's pump bottle is a great option as it makes use of less effort for consumers. 

I became aware of the product's texture's thickness after pumping the contents. I believed that the pea-sized amount I had would be plenty for my skin. I also thought the product was rather strong because it gave my skin a tiny tingling sensation when I applied it all over my face. For this reason, I only used it twice a night at first, but after two weeks, I started using it more frequently until my skin became used to it every night.

The product has no scent, as far as I can tell. I noticed that the product had a matte finish and a cottony soft touch when I applied it to my face. Even though they advised me to use it as a primer for makeup, I chose not to test it as I thought I would prefer to use it at night due to the slightly stinging feeling it caused. I worry that using it in the morning may cause my skin to burn and turn red from exposure to the sun. I'd thus prefer to let the idea drop. Nevertheless, since my friends are using it as a primer, I believe it will be safe to use to some. However, since this product contains vitamin C, which is extremely sensitive to the sun's damaging rays, always remember to wear sunscreen.

After using it for a month, I saw that my chin-area zits dried up and that the imperfections were gradually going away. Additionally, I observed that each time I apply this cream and feel a tingling sensation, it indicates the beginning of a pimple. Based on what I've noticed, this product is keeping the pimple from getting worse. And that's one of the main reasons I adore this product.

I wholeheartedly suggest this product to anyone who has rough, dry skin, blemishes, or even pimples since it will undoubtedly have the ability to gradually lessen the types of skin problems that everyone is dealing with.
