Vitamin C Radiance Capsules - The Body Shop

A few months ago I decided to put in an online order to The Body Shop. In the past I have rarely used any of their products and had seen some fantastic reviews. One of the products I bought was these Vitamin C Radiance Capsules.

When I bought these they were in the 40% off sale. This product is usually £15 and I would never normally pay that. For £15 this product is extremely expensive! This jar contains 28 capsules which are one use each and contain a tiny amount of product. That means that these capsules are more than 50p each! The capsules are only meant to be used once a day but that still means that this product costs £15 a month to regularly use.

Now for the product itself. The capsules are very easy to use, you simply twist the thin end off. The product is easy to squeeze out and the contents are the prefect amount to cover the face.

I instantly didn't like the feeling of this on my face. I can tell this contains silicone and I hate the feeling of silicone based products. I had read reviews of instant brightening of the skin but I noticed no change personally.

After 3 days my skin was still no brighter or more radiant but my chin started to break out in spots. The spots continued and got worse until I finally stopped using the product.

Obviously this a fail for me. It's not just the breakouts, as I realise that won't happen for everyone, but the product also had no positive affects and is extremely overpriced.

Have you tried this?



  1. It's a shame you didn't like this product, I'm on the hunt for my holy grail product for skin brightening as mine has got quite dull! It's definitely overpriced though, I'd never pay that x

    1. Yeah it's far too expensive!
