Vitamin C has a lot of great benefits for the skin and if you want brighter glowing skin, it’s an ingredient worth incorporating into your skincare routine! The Vitamin C range from the BodyShop has a lot of products but are they actually worth it? Because they’re not exactly the cheapest! Today’s review will be on the BodyShop Vitamin C Skin Reviver which I have been using for the last months now.
The BodyShop Vitamin C Skin Reviver is an instant smoother for dull and tired looking skin. It promises to enhance natural radiance and give skin a silky-smooth finish. It also contains light reflecting particles.
What’s there not to love about this little product?! It comes in a pump bottle and the scent is a delicate orange scent: really pleasant and refreshing. It’s very lightweight in texture and easily spreads over the face. The serum has a hint of colour but it doesn’t leave any of this on the skin. There is also a hint of shimmer but this disappears as you smooth it over your skin.
I use this serum as the last step in my morning skincare routine on makeup free days, which is now almost every day lol. The texture is very similar to that of a primer and so it blurs (a tad bit) pores and leaves your skin looking smooth. I only use half a pump for my entire face and neck because I found that using a full pump was too much and it settles a little bit around my neck area.
To me, it doesn’t really add any moisture to my skin and it doesn’t look or feel oily either. It feels light weight and leaves a satin finish. A lot of reviews I have read state that this is excellent as a makeup primer. Although I haven’t used it as such, I think it would be a great alternative as the textures are very similar. The skin reviver as mention earlier also has blurring properties although I won’t say it’s as much as a primer
Verdict– I have been using this skin reviver and the Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser (review pending) and I must say they work really well together. It also layers well on top of other lotions/creams I have used. I love this skin reviver and it’s definitely worth a repurchase!
It’s a must have for me on makeup free days and I love how smooth and healthy looking it leaves my skin.
