Review of The Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturizer SPF 15

Reader Review of the Day: The Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturizer SPF 15

Maybe you know that vitamin C is an antioxidant responsible for fighting the signs of aging or that this essential nutrient helps burn fat. But, when reader Brig482 tried out The Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturizer SPF 15 ($15), she was disappointed by the paltry amount of actual vitamin C in the list of ingredients. Here's what she had to say:

I was on a mission to find a good vitamin C product for my face, and before I did my research I was talked into buying this from The Body Shop. Bad idea. It's a decent moisturizer, but the actual amount of vitamin C is less than 1 percent! For a vitamin C product to work effectively, you need at least 10 percent.

a lot of products claim to have vitamin c but they usually are in minimal concentrations; not sufficient to make any considerable improvement on the skin. that is why it is always best to read labels. i suggest skinceuticals ce ferulic serum (for dry skin) or phloretin cf serum (for oily skin). dr. obagi's professional c serum is also good.
