The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

Skin care beauty

The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Microdermabrasion is one of their best
selling products, and it’s easy to see why. This face scrub has fine
micro particles and crushed garnet stones (fancy) that remove dead skin
cells to (hopefully) produce a brighter and more even complexion. I’ve
been using this for a couple of weeks now and I’m really impressed with
this product. My skin is immediately smoother after use and remains
smooth overnight to produce a lovely base for makeup application. I’d
advise those of you with sensitive skin to go gently with this product
because it can cause irritation if you go gung-ho. Gentle circling is
just as effective.

There’s a lot of tiny grain in this
orangey (think vitamin c capsules) smelling scrub so you only need a
tiny amount. It spreads easily and washes off surprisingly well, there’s
no tiny bits left after you’re finished. I like to use a facecloth to
get everything off. Skin is left soft and super-smooth. This really is
an excellent exfoliator and it’s currently on sale at The Body Shop
website for £7.80 rather than £13.00.

    It is really a similar precious stone peeling microdermabrasion hardware that your darling spa utilizes just that it is more convenient and it accompanies a more reasonable sticker price.high frequency machine reviews
