The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Microdermabrasion - For Dull Tired & Grumpy Skin
I needed a new scrub and after looking around I settled for The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Mirodermabasion. I'm not one for a super gentle sort of scrub where you can hardly feel anything happening while it's on your face, so I had a feeling I was going to get on really well with this one after trying out the texture when I was at The Body Shop KLCC. I have been using the Vitamin C Glow Boosting Mirodermabasion since early September and I love it.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Mirodermabasion is formulated with Amazonian Camu Camu Berry, which is known to have one of the highest contents of vitamin C in nature. In fact it has up to 60X the Vitamin C power of an orange. Antioxidant Vitamin C encourages production of collagen, improves elasticity and protects against damaging environmental aggressors. The Community Trade Shea Butter sourced from Northern Ghana helps nourish, softens and refines the skin.
The ultra-fine exfoliating garnet particles gets rid of the dull layer and dead skin cells which leaves my skin feeling soft smooth and refereshed. It also stimulates cell renewal. Because it's meant for microdermabrasion, it's slightly abrasive, you don't need to apply pressure when massaging it onto skin, light circular movements will suffice. Personally I find it non-stripping and is in no way harsh on the skin. However it may not be suitable if you have sensitive skin.
I like to mask after the scrub, and all skincare products applied after just sinks in effortlessly making the results a lot better. I also noticed it has help my acne scars lighten a little faster. Although it's recommended to only be used once a week, I do use it some time midweek when I wake up and feel that my skin is looking a little rubbish. I squeeze out a small amount with my cleanser and cleanse my face. It just perks up my skin!
The Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser is a perfect pairing if I use the scrub in the morning because the moisturiser is light and feels refeshing on the skin (review here).
