    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does what it claims, but for all the wrong reasons I got this product as a gift. Normally, I'm huge on reading ingredients before a purchase. With that being said, I personally would not have bought this product. While this product does give an "instant smoothing radiance," it's essentially smoke and mirrors, and after using this product until the very last pump (an only this product, barred my cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunblock), I have seen no actual results to my bare skin. It doesn't leave the skin underneath looking brighter, smoother, plumper, etc once it is washed off. Of course, if you looked at the ingredients, it's easy to see why. The first four ingredienst are silicone. While there's nothing inherently wrong with silicone in a beauty product, and it can work wonderfully as an occlusive to the rest of your routine, sealing in all the goodies, all that silicone is what gives the illusion of a smoother face. Mica comes up high on the list too, which you can see if you look closely at the product. Mineral glitter, essentially. That's what gives that "radiance." It's certainly disappointing when the first active ingredient (the Vitamin C) in this product comes well down the list. There are many great Vit C serums out there for half the price (see perhaps SkinActives, Drunken Elephant, or The Ordinary) where Vit C is the third or even first (!) ingredient you see. Another problem I had with this product is the fragrance. While it disappears some time after application, it's a strong smell that smells very much like those old waxy canned car air fresheners. If your skin is sensitive to fragrances, steer clear. All in all, this isn't a completely bad product... but that's assuming you use it as, say, a primer. But it's an expensive primer at that. If you're looking at this product hoping it would give you all that Vit C magic you've been hearing about, I would not recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this!!! I am a junkie with make up and skin/body products. I buy a lot of items bec I like to try new things. I notice that several of my repeat purchases are from The Body Shop. This item is always on stock in my bathroom. It may be good genes but at 53 (gasp!!!), most people think i am in my late 30s. No tanning, no smoking and Vitamin C Skin Boost daily.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pump doesn't work This 'boost' is great, felt good on my skin, smelt great, went on nice and smooth... however after only using it twice, the pump doesn't work anymore.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but good product I use this every day ever since I got it in the mail. It's good for smoothing out and prep my skin for makeup. I use it at night too because it's not sticky and it smells good. The only problem is that it's a bit pricey for how much product you actually receive. I will think twice before I repurchase.

    What should I use after this serum? What will help seal in the serum so my skin will absorb the serum's full benefits?

    Asked by: Buddy
    Along with the serum I use the Vitamin C Moisturizer with SPF. It's works wonderful with the serum. Both products keep you skin smooth feeling refreshed.

    I got this and the cleansing polish as a present. Do I need to get a moisturizer from the series, or will this product be enough for moisturizing

    in the morning and at night?
    Asked by: lysytsia
    I only use this in the morning. If you use a powder foundation a little after, you will notice dead skin cells flaking off. I use a heavier moisturizer at night.

    % Vitamin C

    What is the percentage of Vitamin C in the Vitamin C Skin Boost?
    Asked by: BMWgirl
    In an answer to another person's question they say they "can't" share the percentage, so I assume it's not very much.

    Does this help fade acne scars?

    Asked by: tigerlillies
    This product has not faded any of my scars or dark spots and I've been using this product for a little over a month every day. However, I still like how this product makes my face look and feel while wearing the prodcut. I've read reviews about the Tea Tree Mask and people said the mask has helped their dark spots or scars fade.

    How does this product work on oily skin?

    I have oily, acne skin.
    Asked by: 10Dory
    Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Vitamin C Skin Boost is a light, refreshing primer that smooths you skin and adds a touch of glow. Because of its lightweight texture, it works well for oily skin. Also, for spot treatment of blemishes, we recommend Tea Tree Oil.

    Does this have an expiration date? Do any of the products have one?

    I still have a full bottle of this, but I want to buy this one now because of the discount. Can I do that, or will this product work less if I start using it in about 3 months?
    Asked by: Hansilein
    18 to 24 months, once used.
