The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver

The Vitamin C Skin Reviver (€21) was recommended to me by Donna in The Body Shop in Liffey Valley (seriously, go see her for great skincare advice!). She said that this would be a good for adding extra moisture to the dry areas on my skin, which can sometimes feel tight, even after moisturising. This is kind of half serum/half primer. You apply it after moisturiser and before make up. There is some silicone in the ingredients and it feels quite like a silicone primer on the skin. It gives a kind of luminous effect to the skin and it feels unbelievably light and silky and smooth - the perfect base for foundation. Donna explained that they don't claim that the product actually adds moisture to the skin by penetrating it, rather it leaves a veil on top of the skin.

Well, I have used this every day since I got it. It is perfect to add on top of a moisturiser that is not quite rich enough, or under a foundation that is a little too drying for your skin (you know the ones, they cling to all your dry patches). I have also used it over makeup if I'm reapplying concealer on top of existing make-up in the evening. In this case, it does what it says on the bottle - it revives the skin. Oh and it smells SO GOOD. This is definitely a product I'll be purchasing myself when it runs out.
