Just as I warned you in my recent 'Shower gels' post another purchase from The Body Shop! I received the Skin Reviver for my birthday having mentioned how much I used to love it in a recent catch up chat with friends. I was first introduced to this a good 4 years ago by my Mum who suggested I try it!
The Body Shop 'Vitamin C Skin Reviver' is marketed as a radiance booster that refreshes and smoothes skin helping to enhance your natural glow, even in the Winter! To achieve this the Skin Reviver contains light- reflective particles that to the eye looks like an apricot-y shimmer. It was perfect last Summer for those evenings were foundation was too much faff to wear alone without having to worry my skin looked dull and lifeless! The scent, just like all products from The Body Shop smells gorgeous, a citrus orange that is great for waking you up in the morning.
The gel like consistency applies effortlessly over the face with a soft, velvet texture that makes you want to keep applying! The Body Shop advise you to apply after your moisturiser and before your make up as a primer like product to help you achieve a flawless base. It's extremely easy to apply with your fingers just like a primer. This works well for my dry skin but if you've got oily skin or are having trouble with it I'd recommend cutting out the moisturiser step and seeing how you get on.
Although this product is similar to a primer after trying the Benefit Porefessional recently they are very different products. If you are looking for something to help the longevity of your foundation I would hands down recommend the Porefessional however if its a radiant glow you're looking for the Skin Reviver should be next on your list!
