THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C FACIAL RADIANCE CAPSULES


THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C FACIAL RADIANCE CAPSULES

Hola amigos ^_^


A few weeks ago I reviewed TBS vitamin C facial cleanser.(haul post here).From the vitamin C range I tried the vitamin C capsules too.Capsules have concentrated vitamin C in them and can be applied only at night as Vitamin C is highly photosensitive.This was my first time of any skin beauty treatment.So read to find how it was....


THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C FACIAL RADIANCE CAPSULES









THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C FACIAL RADIANCE CAPSULES





Price PKR 2490.


The capsules come in a glass jar.You have to twist off the cap of capsule and apply the serum on skin.One capsule suffices for full face.The vitamin C has to be applied at night before night cream.

I would just do a short review on this one as there is not much to discuss.


GOOD POINTS:


1)-Very effective.The glow is visible on first use.

2)-Brightens skin and improves complexion.Reduces dullness and dark spots.

3)-Gives a silky smooth finish to skin.

4)-Very easy to use.

5)-Easily integrated in the night routine before moisturizer.

6)-Gentle


BAD POINTS:


1)-Contains silicones so its not pure vitamin C. Silicones can cause irritation to skin in some cases.

2)-Costly.

3)-The brightening effect is not permanent.Lasts for a few days after discontinuation of use.

4)It is not curative.It can not cure your dark spots although it does reduce them ALOT during period of use.

5)-May leave the skin a little dry.Girls with dry skin will need to use their night time moisturizer with it in all seasons.

RATING:


So,do I recommend it?Well I think there are better brightening products in the market, but obviously they all come with a hefty price tag too.So,these capsules can be a good addition to your current night time beauty regimen especially when you do not have lots of time to look after yourself.Also if you can get it in a sale or directly from UK then the price issue can be resolved to some extent.

Anyways,I am hope you find it helpful.Do you use any brightening products?What works for you best?

Stay pretty and blessed.

xoxo

    1. hi nissi.using it on hands and feet can be quite expensive I think.Why don't you try the good old fair and lovely on hand feet at night.
      These capsules should be used on face after washing face.Apply moisturizer above it..

    1. If you can afford to use it on hands and feet go ahead ^_^ As far as I am concerned I did not use on hands and feet but on face it did even up skin tone and reduced tan a bit

    1. with a good moisturiser yes :) dry skin can be a bit sensitive to active compounds like vit c so sensitivity might be an issue
