Pros: adds radiance, makes skin soft and supple, smells great, works as makeup primer
Cons: expensive, too rich for oily skin

I love The Body Shop for their different ranges of skin care.  My skin is different depending on the season- oilier in the summer, very dry in the winter- and the Vitamin C Skin Boost is a perfect product for my skin in the winter.  The first thing I notice is that it smells like oranges, which is fruity, refreshing, and invigorating.  Once on my skin, it has the most silky, luxurious feeling, making my skin velvety smooth.  I've honestly never used any other product that makes my skin so soft, but the downside of this is that I can only use this product in the fall and winter, when my skin needs a lot more moisture.  I have tried it in the summer, but it leaves my face feeling and looking oily and greasy, instead of supple and radiant.

This serum can actually be used a couple of different ways, which is a plus.  You can use it after cleansing and toning and before moisturizing, or, depending on you skin type, it can stand in as your moisturizer.  It also works as a primer before applying your makeup, after you've already moisturized.  It gives your skin a smoothness that helps you apply your makeup flawlessly.  Because it's such a rich texture, I would only recommend it to those with dryer skin, and definitely not to anyone with an oily complexion.  If you have the right skin type for it, however, it brightens your complexion and really does add radiance.  

The only other con to this serum is the price.  It's from one of The Body Shop's higher priced skin care lines, and is really more of a luxury item that I only buy when it goes on sale.

    The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost is a serum that is suppose to make your skin glow and make it look and feel healthier. Although I am not a big fan of citrus-y smell, I think people who does will really like it. It's aroma is closer to the smell of freshly squeezed oranges. Read more
