My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer:
I love TBS products. I have tried most of their ranges and products. It is winter here in Australia and my skin has become so dry, tired and dull, and I was in search of some quick fix for my poor skin. So, when I spotted this “Instant Glow Enhancer” from their Vitamin C range, I quickly grabbed it.
This comes in a slim orange tube packaging with a black cap like other Vitamin C products from TBS. The tube packaging makes it easy to pop into your purse, which makes this product even easier to use on the go. Out of the tube, the product is a bright, peachy orange colored cream, but when applied to the skin, it just melts away without any setback. This product can be worn solo or under the makeup. I usually wear it after my CTM routine, when I need a quick perk up on my skin.
I also wear it under my makeup; it acts as a good primer base as it smoothens the skin. This product is a hybrid of skin care and makeup. It is more like a rosy tinted moisturizer which imparts a subtle healthy glow to your face and makes it look radiant and young. Sometimes, I just wear this alone without makeup, and I love how it beautifully transforms my skin.
The peach colored appearance of this wonder cream both, moisturizes and color corrects the complexion. As you may know, peach color correcting products have long been called upon to erase any signs of dullness, and in some cases, dark circles, and that’s what exactly this does.
This is more like a subtle strobe cream coupled with good skincare, and I love the fact that it is compatible with all complexions. I am in love with this product. It works like a tinted moisturizer, primer, strobe cream that brightens the skin and eradicates any signs of dull skin. This is one product that can be used as a standalone product to brighten and nourish the skin, in one quick step. This is a clever and easy way to create a radiant and healthy complexion without dragging any highlighting products.
