Vitamin C Glow Revealing Serum


The vitamin c glow revealing serum from The Body Shop provides antioxidant and anti-aging benefits whilst also helping to improve overall skin tone. Enriched with a 10% stable vitamin c derivative and also containing Bakuchiol, the serum can be applied both morning and evening to hydrate and illuminate. Incorporating a vitamin c product into your skincare routine is ideal to protect your skin from environmental aggressors and it works great by boosting your sunscreen's performance, whilst also applying at night will help support the skins repair process from the stressors it has occurred during the day.

The 3-O Ethyl Ascorbic Acid included in the serum offers all of the primary benefits of pure vitamin C which is known as ascorbic acid. The stable, water- and oil-soluble derivative has to be converted to vitamin C within the skin but this helps it be more tolerable by having an acidic pH range of (4–5.5) and is ideal for those who have found they cannot tolerate 10% or higher vitamin C serums. Featuring bakuchiol which chemically has nothing to do with any of the retinoids you may have seen or have used in your skincare products, it does regulate and influence skin cell behaviour which means producing more collagen such as collagen I, III and IV while also decreasing the enzyme in the skin MMP which attacks collagen resulting in loss of firmness and the signs of aging. Influencing hydration factors within the skin it also has melanin-inhibiting properties by reducing the oxidative process which in turn can help improve photo damage and skin tone.

The full ingredients of the vitamin c glow revealing serum:

Propanediol, Alcohol Denat., Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Propylene Carbonate, Hydroxypropylcellulose, Parfum/Fragrance, Linalool, Palmaria Palmata Extract, Limonene, Geraniol, Bakuchiol, Benzyl Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Citral, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Alcohol.

Applying to the skin after you have cleansed, vitamin c should be the first product applied to gain the maximum benefits because other products can block its absorption minimising its potential. The dropper tool is perfect to apply a couple of drops to the face and neck with a slight citrus scent that soon disappears when it has absorbed quickly. It can feel slightly sticky if you apply too much but applying or following on with your current skincare routine (day & night) which would be a hydrating serum or moisturiser, this effect soon wears off. I love using this serum because not only does it deliver what it promises and works brilliantly with other products applied over the top, it will awaken tired and dull complexions to reveal a natural radiance!
