Here is another review from my favourite brand “The Body Shop.” It is the Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.
Hydrate and enhance your skin’s natural radiance while protecting it from damaging UV rays with a lightweight, easily-absorbed lotion.

How To Use:
Contains Amazonian camu camu berry, which is known to have one of the highest contents of vitamin C in nature. Vitamin C encourages collagen production, improves elasticity and protects against damaging environmental aggressors. Sunscreens provide medium-level, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection. Community Trade sesame seed oil softens skin and strengthens skin’s natural defense system.
My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30:
I bought this cream with very high expectations and hopes. I am a crazy fan of “The Body Shop” and I love almost all their products. I have tried most of their ranges except the ones for the matured skin. So far, it has done pretty well in my expectations, but this one is a slight letdown, but just a bit. I am still happy with it, but have few recommendations for it!
The best thing is the packaging in which the cream comes. It is a petite tube that is pretty handy to carry and is also lightweight. The tube is not air filled, so the cream comes out neatly. The cream is very light in texture and gets absorbed very easily. It has a slight citrusy fragrance which is decent. It moisturizes my skin nicely, so that is another plus, and yes, the SPF. It contains SPF 30 that gives some protection from the sun. The cream may not give you enough moisturization for dry winter season, but it certainly does a good job in keeping the skin moist and hydrated. It is also light to use, but some may find it heavy in summers.
The only little problem I have with this product is that it gives me a slight burning sensation for a few seconds. The sensation chills down in just moments though! My skin is a little sensitive, so maybe, the sensation is a problem only for sensitive skins and as per the claim, I have not noticed any radiance in my skin after 15 days of using the cream, maybe I will have to wait for a few more weeks.
Pros of The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30:
- Cream is light, that is easily absorbed.
- Contains high amount of vitamin C that is a boon for the skin.
- It carries a light citrus-y fragrance.
- Cream is quite moisturizing in nature.
- Easy to carry around.
- Contains SPF.
- The tube goes a long way as just a drop is enough for one time application. As shown in the pic, this much is more than sufficient for one application.
Cons of The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30:
- Gives a slight burning sensation.
- It does give a shine, but it is temporary.
- Price is on the higher side compared to the claims it makes.
This would be ideal for people who have dull and dry skin as it is a good moisturizer.
