I am a great fan of The Body Shop Vitamin C range. Recently, they have revamped this range and added some new products, and I picked up a cleanser from this line called as “The Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish”. So, let’s get into the review.
Price: $26.95 AUD for 125ml
Remove dull skin cells and reveal radiance with Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish. This Vitamin C face wash gently exfoliates and is enriched with jojoba particles to effectively clean skin leaving it smooth and revitalized.
• Best for dull skin and those in need of a daily facial cleansing wash
• Contains camu camu berry with 20x more Vitamin C than an orange
• For a concentrated skin treatment after washing, pair with Drops of Youth Concentrate
My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish:
Vitamin C is an essential part of a woman’s skincare regime, especially when you cross your teenage. Vitamin C products provide a greater protection against the harmful UV rays, increase the production of collagen and decrease the look of fine lines and pigmentation that are the result of ageing. It also helps in making the skin look younger and firmer, and also aids in repairing the skin cells.
The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish comes in an orange squeezy tube packaging with a black flip open cap. As I said before, the vitamin C range from TBS has had a makeover, and they have given a black cap for their existing and new products. The cleanser itself is a pale orange coloured gel which contains some tiny microbeads.
This cleanser is a 2-in-1 product; it works as a mild exfoliator as well as a cleanser. This cleanser has a beautiful zesty orange smell, which lingers for quite some time. It is made up of Amazonian Camu Camu berries; Camu Camu is a cherry-like citrus fruit found in Amazon rainforest. Camu Camu berries are the highly documented source of vitamin C and also contain potent antioxidants, phytochemicals and amino acids.
A little of this cleanser is enough for the entire face. It gently scrubs away the dirt from the face and provides a mild glow and also lathers well. I am not a great fan of this product since it performs just like an ordinary drugstore cleanser. I expected it to do some miracles for its high price point but, it failed to do anything. Since it also exfoliates, I don’t think it is suitable for women with dry or sensitive skin. Overall, I am disappointed with this product. It does add some radiance to my face, but nothing that is long-lasting or extraordinary.
Pros of The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish:
- 2-in-product; cleanser and a scrub.
- Made up of camu camu berries.

Cons of The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish:

IMBB Rating: 2.5/5
Will I Repurchase/Recommend The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Glow Cleansing Polish?
No. It’s a pricey product that doesn’t do anything great. You can skip this.
