Guest Post | The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

Today's guest post comes from the lovely Lizzie from Lizaboo.

My sunday pamper ritual is dominated by all things beauty. I can never deny myself a long hot bath, with candles, bubbles and all the works, washing away the weekend and refreshing myself for the new week ahead.
But disaster almost struck recently when I had completely forgotten to re-order one of my trusted Liz Earle exfoliators. I can’t start a week without a good scrub, and this goes without saying for my face.
However I was just in luck, as during the day I’d been to Body Shop to purchase a gift for a friend, where I was completely sold a bucket load of products by the sales assistant, and typically ended up walking out with far more than I bargained for.
At the time I kicked myself for being so naive, but come Sunday night when all I had was my Body Shop Vitamin C Scrub, I was quite thankful I’d been taken advantage of.
She must of seen beauty blogger written all over my forehead!

I’m telling you this long winded story to make you realise that I didn’t choose the Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion scrub, it found me.
And as it wasn’t a choice that I’d made. (Trust me when I say, beauty purchases usually involve far more research.) I thought I would give it the benefit of the doubt, and let it be my scrub for one night, and one night only.

But just as I was ready to wave goodbye to it after a sunday night stand and lose it forever to the top shelf of my bathroom cupboard, it completely stole the show!

Now for those of you that are new to this fandangled word ‘Microdermabrasion’, it’s a technical facial procedure where the outer layer of dead skin is removed by light abrasion, revealing a softer more youthful look to the skin.
So wanting to achieve this in a scrub, Body Shop have combined very fine beads with Vitamin C to give you that Microdermabrasion facial at home, and without any scary machines.

Layered in a rich formula of Shea Butter, this has to be without a doubt an unsung hero in the world of exfoliators.
Not only did my skin feel super soft afterwards, but it also glowed with health and warmth.
As a lover of the citrus variety anyway, it smells like summer in a bottle. Sweet and juicy with that well-known clean feeling.
Personally I apply this after cleansing my face, and squeezing just a little into my palms before rubbing it vigorously across my face.
I honestly never thought it would make a difference. But isn’t it wonderful when a product surprises you? A little bit like you’ve just found gold.
Body Shop have certainly been out of my beauty bag for a while, but I can see that I’m probably going to be spending more money there soon, and without the help of a sales assistant this time around.
