The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser

Vitamin C Daily Moisturiser

Now I know I’ve only shown this recently in a monthly haul but I’ve been testing it out for a few weeks.  So what do I think of it?

The Daily Moisturiser* retails for £13 from The Body Shop and you get 50ml.  There is a light citrus scent which I quite enjoyed.  This is quite a thick cream and you only need a small amount for your face and neck.  It does absorb quickly but I found it left my skin feeling greasy, which is not what you want to start your day!

So a quick run down of the claims made on the website.  “This daily moisturiser enhances skin’s natural radiance and contains SPF 30.  Hydrates and helps protects skin.  Gives skin a bright, radiant appearance.  Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.  Contains SPF 30 for UVA and UVB protection”

Sadly I didn’t notice any improvement to my natural radiance to my skin, but I did only use it for about 2 weeks, so it may have taken longer for any noticeable difference.  I do think it helped to hydrate some of my dry patches and it did leave my skin feeling soft.  I have mainly normal/oily combination skin and I have large pores generally around my nose and cheeks.  This moisturiser clogged my skin quite a bit, to the point that I got black heads on my cheeks!   Not just one or two, but lots and lots of them.  I thought maybe it was just myself, but after chatting to a few folks on the various #bbloggers chats it turns out I’m not alone.   I have tried a sample of the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser and it felt much lighter on the skin, so it might work better.  I should point out I have used moisturisers in the past that have SPF etc and I do double cleanse every evening, so it shouldn’t be causing the problem.  This might be a great moisturiser if you have dry skin and no issues with large pores, but it definitely isn’t one for oily skin with large pores as it will clog up your face and blackheads on your cheeks are just not cricket.

  1. I use the face wash of this and I love it so was really interested in reading about this cream. It’s a shame it didn’t work for you – I expected it to be better but as you said maybe it’s more suited to dry skin. I am enjoying going through your blog xx
