The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Review


Skin benefits of Vitamin C

  • Limits damage done by UV rays
  • Fights off free radicals
  • Improves skin texture
  • Protects against skin discolouration
  • Replenishes & plumps up the epidermis
  • Helps wounds heal quicker
  • Increases collagen production

About Vitamin C

  • Exfoliation enhances Vitamin C absorption
  • Vitamin C + Vitamin E offers more protection when applied topically


I used to have mainly combination/oily skin, but since giving birth to #3 things have changed. The oily patches on my face (t zone, cheeks and chin) have suddenly gotten extremely dry, not to mention a lovely bit of hyper pigmentation around my nose.

I’ve been using this “scrub” religiously for about a month now and I’m so happy with the results I felt the need to share.

This exfoliant is very creamy and non drying. It’s contains Vitamin C, Amazonian Camu Camu and Shea Butter.

It’s very gentle. The little granules in it are super tiny and aren’t as harsh on your skin as some other scrubs on the market. I’m used to using an apricot scrub and this was nothing like that at all.

I’ve been using my Vitamin E day cream from The Body Shop with this for added moisture and my skin is no longer dry and flaky. The dark marks (hyper pigmentation) around my nose have cleared up and best of all my pores look way smaller. Which in turn has made my skin look way smoother.

On the downside, I have to admit that I thought it was going to smell like oranges and it doesn’t. It has kind of a weird orange cleaning product type smell.

Some people say it’s kind of expensive for the amount of product you’re getting ($20 for 75ml) but The Body Shop always has sales going on. I picked my tube up for $12 during a special promotion.

Definitely going to repurchase this. What’s your favourite Body Shop product?

Mini Lush Haul

Hi lovelies! I went a little crazy during a recent Lush visit & wanted to share with you. There was so much pink and its smelled so good, that I just couldn’t help myself…

Milky Bath | Bubble Bar

Made with cocoa butter, skimmed milk & olive oil, it’s supposed to be soothing & softening. It even has a little sparkly cocoa butter bottle top to it for extra softness. This one has a very light orange scent to it.

Rose Jam | Bubbleroon

Smells like sweet strawberry jam with a hint of rose, it’s beyond delicious! It contains white coconut oil and shea butter to soften & condition along with rose oil & lemon oil to balance, uplift and refresh. This one is great for the winter & soothing dry, sensitive skin.

Pink Flamingo | Reusable Bubble Bar

This is brilliant! I love that this little guy is reusable, just give him a swirl under a running bath tap for loads of sweet smelling bubbles. Filled with fragrant rosewood and sexy ylang ylang, this guy is going to get some serious use.

The Experimenter | Bath Bomb

I picked up this one because of a video I saw on Instagram. It fills your bathtub with loads of bright almost psychedelic colors. Plus it pops!! Like popping candy, how fun is that? It smells of warm, creamy vanilla with a subtle spiciness to it.

BubbleGum | Lip Scrub

My daughter made me buy this one. I’m not sure about actually eating it, but apparently you can. It’s made from fair trade sugar and moisturizing jojoba oil. It’s great for exfoliating dry, chapped lips before putting on for lipstick.

Prince Charming | Shower Cream

Why does this one have to be limited edition? It smells absolutely heavenly, like pomegranate & vanilla. So yummy! And so moisturizing because it’s made with fair trade organic cocoa butter…and it’s pink! Does it get any better than that?

I also picked up the ButterBall Bath Bomb, but he didn’t last the night. Long day at the mall with the hubby & kids…a warm bath & glass of wine were definitely in order.

What’s your favorite Lush product?
