My Take on the product: I Actually bought this Vitamin C Skin boost on a whim. I had gone to buy a Facial Spray but was very impressed with the Vitamin C skin boost when the SA demonstrated it. It contains silicones and hence really smoothens the skin out and works as the perfect makeup primer. It makes my makeup long lasting and keeps it fresh.

What I like about the product :

  • Really smoothens out the skin
  • Excellent primer
  • Makeup glides very smoothly over this
  • Fresh citrusy fragrance
  • Mattifies the skin
  • Just need 1-2 pumps for the face and neck
  • Packaging is travel friendly and the pump dispenses just the right amount of product
  • Plumps up the skin and fills pores to an extent
  • Doesn’t cause any breakouts

What I don’t like about the product :

  • It contains silicones
  • It is slightly on the expensive side
  • Doesn’t brighten the skin as it claims
  • It is more of a primer then a serum

Auerate bye or buy : Definitely, worth a buy.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost’s Review
The Vitamin C skin boost I feel is more of a cosmetic rather than a skincare product. I use it on face after Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. For days when I want my skin to Iook naturally beautiful sans makeup, I just use the skin boost and I am good to go. It really smoothens out my skin and gives it an overall healthy and radiant look. I don’t need anything more as I love the way my skin feels and looks after I use the Vitamin C skin boost. However, it does not help with long term skin brightening. I have been using this for almost 3 years even though it’s on the expensive side I would still go back and repurchase it for how it works on its own and also under makeup.
