Rated 4 out of 5 by Megolas Smooth and Mattifying
I use this product in the morning after I wash my face and put on a little moisturizer. I bought it thinking it would make my combination skin look brighter. In fact, it works a little differently, but the results are still a beuatiful, smooth complexion. However, this product isn't quite as natural as other Body Shop products, because it has many of the same ingredients as silicon-based primers.
I love how this product smells--it smells like oranges, actually. It's nice to put on because it glides on to skin so smoothly. It makes my face completely smooth and soft to the touch. Rather than brightening my skin, it actually keeps the shiny spots of my combination skin mattified so my complexion looks more even. Because of this, it's great to use as a primer for foundation. I also like to use it to enhance my complexion on days when I don't wear makeup. I also think this product must be beneficial for my complexion: since I started using it, I haven't broken out as much and my skin hasn't been dry and irritated as much either. So even though this product doesn't really brighten skin as much as it claims, I still use it everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShanLynn Wish I had tried this sooner!
I am a licensed makeup artist and have tried soooo many skincare products throughout the years. From drugstore products to high end products. Rarely do I find something that I A.) Notice a big difference with & B.) re-purchase. Because of the fact that I like to try any product with good reviews, hoping for that 'wow' factor, I am always moving on to something else. I can honestly say that i absolutely WILL be re-purchasing the Vitamin C Skin Boost. This product has been amazing for my skin. I have always worn at least tinted moisturizer or medium coverage foundation daily, but with this, I don't wear anything else. I apply a light-weight moisturizer that works for my combination skin & when that is absorbed, I apply this as directed. It gives my skin the glow & extra 'oomph' that i usually turn to tinted moisturizer/foundation for. I literally just wear this along with some color/shimmer on my cheeks, concealer under my eyes & viola! My skin looks like my skin.... but even toned, brighter, & glowing. Not only that, i used to get oily in my t-zone by mid day but that has not happened at all since I started using this product. My skin is balanced & all oil is under control. Not to mention, oh my goodness, my face literally feels like silk!! No joke. The smell is nice & refreshing as well. If you are like me & have combination skin & don't necessarily need a bunch of coverage, i highly recommend trying this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by newhope14 Not for me
After reading raving review about Vitamin C, I decided to buy this when its on sale. I hate it. Its leaving my face super oily and it just sit on top of my skin. Since it just sit on top of my skin, my moisturize just glide off. I decided to give it a chance so I used if for at least 2 weeks. I don't see any improvement for my dull skin. Not only that, my skin started to feel really dry so I stopped. I then switched to Origins High-Potency Night-A-Min (also claim to help with dull skin) and it does wonder for my skin so far.

This product makes my skin feel so soft. I use twice daily under my moisturizer. I usually buy it when it is on sale, so I can stock up. Although I am 50, my skin still breaks out if I use oily products that clog my pores. This does not do that. I love this skin boost.
