Product Review for the Skincare Beauties
I must confess. I LIVE for incorporating new skincare products into my routine. My ongoing obsession consists of me diligently researching skincare products with high ratings, placing it in my cart, and then never ordering it! Seriously, I do this with almost any online purchase I'm about to make. So, I did just that with my online purchase at The Body Shop. When I was ready to actually buy my items I was so sad to find that The Body Shop had sold out. I decided then and there that I'd make a trip to the mall to see if faith could be restored. To my surprise, the entire Vitamin C line was waiting for me on the shelf. I had a full-on "Treat Yo' Self" moment and decided to purchase 3 products (woot-woot for sales!) -- the Glow-Protect Lotion, Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion Facial Exfoliator, and the Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel. The Vitamin C line is targeted for those experiencing dull, tired skin and it is one of the more popular collections on the site. What attracted me to this collection is the Camu Camu berry ingredient -- it comes from the Amazonian Rainforest and contains 60 times more Vitamin C concentration than an orange! No wonder it can breathe life back into grumpy skin.
I'm going to share with you my first impressions of the Vitamin C line. So let's get to it.
Glow Protect Lotion
I was looking for a daily SPF face lotion that was low on oil and high on protection. The Glow Protect Lotion is SPF 30 and blends easily into my skin. As a girl with a medium-tone complexion, I loathe sunscreen that leaves a white-purplish tint behind. This lotion doesn't do that! Plus, it can be used prior to makeup application, so that's a win in my book. Smells delicious and the 50 ml tube seems to last a good while.
Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion Facial Exfoliator
I try to exfoliate once a week and I like how the product always leaves my skin soft and smooth. The exfoliator is somewhat rough, so I gently massage my face in a circular motion. I especially like the refreshing, citrus scent. A tip: use a small amount on your lips before applying lipstick for a smooth finish!
Glow-Revealing Liquid Peel
This product is a bit tricky. I like to work the peel into my skin section by section, since it's a gel to peel consistency. When you work the product into the skin, you'll start to see the dead skin cells collect into tiny balls. This peel is definitely gratifying because you can instantly see the difference.
Out of the three products, my favorite is the Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion Facial Exfoliator. It's my go-to when I need a quick pick-me-up and the scent is beyond satisfying. Clearly, this exfoliator is a fan-favorite because it's currently out of stock online. All this talk makes me want to treat myself to a treatment. Let me know if you have a most-loved facial cleanser, exfoliator, or general favorite. I am always on the lookout for new beauty finds.
