My Experience with The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow-Boosting Microdermabrasion
The body shop Vitamin C Glow boosting Microdermabrasion kit is in a plastic tube in a cheery orange color. The store lady told me to use a very small quantity twice a week for best results and that’s what I did. The product is whitish grey in color and infused with tiny particles…I later learned that these are garnet microparticles. There is no fragrance which is okay as I am not a big fan off added artificial fragrances. I rub the product in gentle large circles on my face, leave it on for a couple of minutes and wash it off.
There is a visible difference in my skin after the first application and wash off. I have pesky blackheads on my nose which go away after I use this product…only to come back after a couple of days (this is the usual nature of blackheads). After constant use for a month, my skin looked brighter and smoother. However, the blackhead reoccurrence remained and they became as stubborn as ever when I skipped using this product for a week. I concluded that the results of this product will appear only with constant and regular use and will disappear once use is discontinued.
Given the price point, I expected more permanent results….
Honestly, this product has me hooked…even though it didn’t solve my blackhead problem permanently. I like the way my skin feels smoother and the T zone feels lighter after I apply this exfoliator. I also love the tingling sensation on my skin and the clean fresh skin I sport for at least the next 30 hours. However, the dullness and the rough bumps around the T zone reappear much before my next scheduled use of the product.
I thought of using the product at a higher frequency…like 3 times a week but I am scared of potential side effects. What’s disappointing is that the label on the exfoliator tube has no ingredient list and neither is the website clear with ingredient information.
Would I recommend?
If the price is not an issue…then go ahead and buy the body shop Vitamin C Glow boosting Microdermabrasion. I will use this product as long as I cannot find a better product at a lower price point.
