Most Helpful Positive Review love it!
I love this product! I was looking for a facial moisturizer that wasn't going to make my face more oily than it already is and at the same time would help with the winter dryness and this products does it! It is a little expensive but a little goes a long way!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Impressed
I was in the market for a new moisturizer and I always purchase one that has SPF. I have combination skin: oily T-zone but my chin and the end of my nose are always dry and flaky. I purchased The Body Shop's Vitamin C moisturizer during the holidays when they were having a huge sale. I've been using it regularly for about a little over a month but I've decided I just can't deal with it anymore. The first time I used it, I had just finished washing and toning my face with some new products that were fairly harsh. When I followed those products with the Vitamin C moisturizer, my skin felt like it was on f i r e (Ulta would not allow me to post the word "f ir e." It's considered profanity now?). I waited it out for a minute and the burning eventually dissipated and I chalked it up to the face wash instead of the moisturizer. But I've since learned that it doesn't matter what products I use before this nor the condition of my skin, my face still burns when I apply this. I've used many other products in the past that contained vitamin C and citrus ingredients, so I know my skin can handle them. I'm not sure what else is in this moisturizer that causes my face to burn, but I've never had anything like this happen before (from a moisturizer, that is).
Aside from the burning, I felt the moisturizer was oddly heavy but not moisturizing enough at the same time. When first applied, it feels heavy and greasy. I still had flakiness plague me throughout the day after applying this, though. The product claims to help brighten dull skin but I haven't seen any brightening since I started using it. I'm really disappointed because I love the brand.
On a positive note, this product is a good value if it works for you. The tube is pretty small, but it would last a long time if I were to continue using it because a little bit goes a long way.

This product is great. The only thing that I didn't like is how small it is, and how the price for such a small bottle.
M Sand from Houston, TX
I have combination skin (Oily T-Zone & the rest of my face is dry to normal.) My morning routine consists of
1. I cleanse my face with a vegan, oil-free cleanser (not from the brand)
2. I then tone with their matifying tea tree oil toner
3. I moisturize with their vitamin C cream
& I must say I've never loved a sunscreen more. Despite my already oily T-Zone, I find that if I apply slightly closer to my hairline (as u should w/ sunscreen) rather than mid- forehead, I avoid the greasy shine. I also dab each cheek with a small dot of the product & it stays all day.

This product has a nice smell and it gives me a nice glow. However, it's too thick and takes a while to absorb.
Tara from Clearwater, Fl
First the smell is so strong it smells like you're putting a cleaning product on your face. Second I have normal to oily skin and this doesn't absorb into my skin. Third this irritated my skin immediately after each use and caused breakouts.
Chenise C. from Georgia
I love this product so much!!... Love the way it smells and it's so refreshing. It leaves my skin soft and fresh. Pricey but worth it!.
Ash3748 from Columbus, OH
I have very fair skin and it takes my skin forever to heal. Any sort of breakout typically leaves me with a bright red spot for a while, but I've been using this product for a little over a month and it's the absolute best. It does an amazing job at lightening the dark spots on my skin and evening out my complexion.
Love at first try
may from ct
if you have oily skin and hate the feeling of thick sunscreen on your face or the buildup of moisturizer as the sun cooks you, I would recommend this product. it is very light and easy to spread ( a dime size goes a long way). I love the smell as well.
With certain products
Janie the runner from Apex, NC
I have a dry forehead (flaky skin) and oily pimple-prone cheeks. I use the body shop tea tree face wash. I love it mostly, but it does dry my skin out just a tad bit. I use this and it brings back the moisture and gives me a nice bright glow! I would say it is a little greasy, but I need it since the tea tree wash strips a bit of my natural oils. Then I apply my drunk elephant vitamin c and B-hydra and I love it! At night I put drunk elephant tlc framboos and marula oil. My skin looks amazing!
I LOVE this product! Have used for years!
Supchez from Scottsdale, AZ
It absorbs quickly.... Is not greasy and smells great. Makes my skin feel nourished and ready for the day...even days I'm out in the sun for more hours than usual. Love the added advantage of the SPF. It's really the perfect moisturizer for me.

I have been using this product for many years. I love that I always have sun protection on even in the winter as I do work outside sometimes.
Over Powering Scent + High Price
ann from ny
for the price of how little you get honestly you would expect it to be better than it is . when i put this on it makes my face look purple , but having a medium skin tone that's normal w/ products that have spf . also the scent is way too strong . it's takes about an hour to wear off & the site is scent gives me headaches . probably will not be buying this again .
Idk from Ga
The people that are calling this product greasy are so weird lol it leaves you looking dewy. Maybe if you're used to a completely flat face you will feel that way but it's fine. Sometimes it slightly tingles and it makes me feel like the vitamin c is doing something. My skin overall looks brighter and less dull which can help with dark spots
Good Product for sensitive or acne prone skin
AuthenticMe from USA
I like this product. I use RetinA at night so I need a good moisturizer / sunscreen. It will be a little thick or some say greasy because of the sunscreen but it keeps my skin moisturized all day without needing more product. Helps with dry skin, peeling and protects. My skin is sensitive and sometimes acne prone, product helps. I like the smell as well. I like it and will buy again.
Smells great and protects well, but SO GREASY
Rgonz from Santa Barbara, CA
Love that this has Vitamin C and has a nice light scent, but it's way too greasy and heavy. It doesn't seem like this absorbs into skin well and leaves my skin looking very greasy, even after allowing it to absorb for 20-30 minutes before I put makeup on. After a couple days using it, I also noticed I started breaking out. I do not recommend this product.
Nicole from Connecticut
This is the worst moisturizer I've ever used! It doesn't absorb into your skin at all and the grapefruit odor is so strong that it stays on your face all day! Seriously don't waste your money
Kat from Minnesota
Such a great moisturizer. Brightens my skin and protects very well. Skin feels soft, hydrated, and looks bright. Only need a tiny amount to cover the whole face, (can get the oily "sunscreen" appearance if using too much).
Favorite daily cream
Dry heat from Tucson, AZ
Use daily as a daytime moisturizer. Appreciate the SPF since I spend a good amount of time outdoors. Does not feel heavy or make face feel hot. Smells nice also plus the Vitamin C is brightening.
Super hydrating, smells amazing!
Annie from Brooklyn center, mn
I use this product everyday in the morning and it gives my skin life! It actually does make my skin glow and makes my face look so healthy. The only thing that I cant do anything about is I tend to get more oily throughout the day, but nothing a tissue or blotting sheet wont fix.
Courtney from Aurora, co
This product works amazing and leaves my skin with a sun glow appearance and little goes along way!
A bit greasy for an combo skin
Brianna from Virginia beach, Va
Being someone who has a combo skin with hyperpigmentation, vitamin c with spf seems amazing! That's what I thought when I purchased this. But after wearing it, my skin felt super oily and greasy that I had to blot my face with paper towels.

Love this stuff. Worth every cent.
For DRY Skin!
Kim from Fort Worth, TX
My skin is super DRY. This moisturizer gives me a glow without being greasy. I also have sensitive skin and this product has not caused any reactions.
Just doesn't work for me
KimNessa from Arlington, VA
I actually purchased this in store. I was happy to find it because it was sold out online at the time. I have horrible, acne prone skin and wanted to incorporate more vitamin c products in my skincare regimen to help brighten and even out my complexion. I was pretty excited about this moisturizer because it has a pretty high SPF content along with the vitamin c (it also has a nice citrusy scent). Unfortunately, it's super greasy, and it made my chin break out horribly. I really wanted to love it, but it just didn't work out. Also, I think it's a bit overpriced for how little is in the tube—there's less than 2 ounces in there!
So heavy and greasy
De from NH
Skin was oily all day. I had to wash my face at work to try to get the moisturizer off. Returned
