A little something something…. | The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising face spritz

One of the perks of having combination skin is that you can often get dull, lack lustre looking skin. It’s true… our plight is real and very frustrating. We combat dryness and oiliness on the same canvas, but now we have to put up with skin that’s got as much life oozing from it as a baked potato. I may be a little dramatic but my pain is real and really affects my self esteem.

Whilst skin care shopping in the Body Shop, this little bottle of Vitamin C Energising face spritz magically found itself in my basket (that happens a lot aye) and for the price of £10! You might think that’s expensive, but you get 100ml and this product has lasted a while!

What does it actually do? If you’re having a dull day or you want a pick me up, this product is the one for you! Enriched with Vitamin C, it gives an instant boost and subtle glow to your face whilst drying to a matte finish – so all you oily girls (and guys!) don’t shy away! Its also made with aloe Vera to smooth the skin if its feeling a little irritated.

When do you use this? I use this product before applying moisturiser (and after if its looking particularly dull) and allow to sink in well. Its great because it doesn’t affect the application of your foundation or concealer, if anything it makes it glide on more evenly and gives you a radiant boost… who doesn’t want that? I love to give my face a good few sprays during a hot day at work to re-awaken myself! Don’t worry about this product smudging your make-up, even if you have a smoky eye!

Is it convenient to use? Yes! If you want the short answer ha ha! The bottle is compact, sleek and the perfect size to throw in your handbag so you can take it on the go! It comes in a spray form so you don’t to worry about using your hands! The spray covers a large area on my face, so two or three sprays and you’ll be good to go!

Is it worth the money? This question is always hard to answer because it depends on your budget and how much money you want to spend on an ‘accessory’ product like this. These types of products are always a luxury rather than a necessity but I would miss it if it wasn’t in my collection!

Overall verdict… its good, but not a show stopper! 

Would I recommend to a friend? Yes!

Scoring out of 10? 8

Have you tried this product, if so… what did you think?
