The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

After having so many products lying around the house I made the decision a while back to put a halt on buying new stuff so that I could use up some of my older products. Some items I found I had completely forgot about so it was just like new anyway!

One of those items was The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion facial scrub. I purchased this about six months ago along with a few other Vitamin C products. It retails at a full price of £12 for 75ml, however with the sheer amount of offers on at The Body Shop you're likely to get a good deal.



The product I feel has quite a 'gritty' texture, the exfoliating particles are very small but there are a lot of them!  The product also has a lovely orange scent to it which I really do like, although, it could be a little too strong for some people. I have the Vitamin C Skin Reviver from the same range and I have to say I do find that a little overpowering sometimes.

I never really thought I had dull skin, so I'm not entirely sure why I purchased this, however after using it I can honestly say I do feel and see a difference in my skin. It appears much brighter, as if I've literally removed a top layer of old skin...gross! It doesn't make my skin feel sore at all, as in my opinion when rubbing it on it can feel a little rough. My skin afterwards is refreshed, much more radiant and ready to be moisturised.

At the moment I'm pretty sure I would re-purchase this, however not at the full price as I think the RRP for this is a little too expensive. Overall, I'm rather glad I came across this again as I really do like it!

*The Body Shop is a cruelty free brand, it is however owned by L'Oreal who conducts testing on animals.

  1. This sounds perfect - I love a scrub with small grains but lots of them. SHame I'm on a beauty spending ban!

    1. I think you have to stop every now and then, you can't just use up products within one week, they take time to use.

      Thanks Laura! x

  5. Great review, I like the sounds of it! Usually I don't find my skin boring/dull but in the winter it can look a bit... grey so maybe this will help combat that! I think you have stunning skin - your profile photo is soooo beautiful!
