My skin sometimes seems to have a life of its own, last summer it was really dry and sensitive whereas recently it has been more oily and slightly dull looking. Combined with the fact that the cold weather ensures that my lips are always chapped and you do not have a recipe for a happy face. You might remember that recently I posted about Skinetica which seemed to be helping me combat the little spots that I'd been getting (particularly on my forehead) and my skin seems to also be less oily than it has been (I'm not 100% sure what I have to thank for that), but I still felt like it just looked a little bit dull and a little bit lifeless. I needed something to give me a bit of a boost, and that's why I was so excited to try the Daily Skin Booster by Radiant C. I've been using it each day for the last two weeks so I thought now was a good time to share my initial reactions with you.
The whole Radiant C range is packed full of Vitamin C and claims to rejuvenate your skin leaving it luminous and invigorated. The Daily Skin Booster is to be applied daily after cleansing and before you put on your moisturiser and makeup to brighten and improve the texture of your skin.
My first impression of the product was that it reminds me of a Maybelline primer that I used to have in terms of texture. The product describes itself as a 'gel-creme' which fits it well, and when applied to the face you really can feel a difference in the smoothness of your skin. I can definitely agree that the product does what it says on the tin in terms of improving texture. In terms of 'invigorating and rejuvenating' the results are less immediately clear but I can honestly say that I did look in the mirror the other day and notice that the bags under my eyes had lessened slightly and my skin looked a little bit more 'even' overall.
On the negative side, I do think that the price (£24.20) is a little bit steep for a 30ml product, although it does look like it will last for quite a while. I also got a little bit confused about the fact that you can't find the product in stores or order it directly off the site, instead you have to contact an independent distributor to arrange buying the product through them. This is great if you're not sure what sort of thing you're looking for and you want to discuss what would work best for you, but not so great if you know you want a particular product and you'd quite like to just pop it in your basket and pay straightaway.
Would I repurchase it? I'm not 100% sure yet, I have noticed an improvement in my skin in the last two weeks so if by the time I finish it I really can see a massive difference and it did last a while then yes I would probably splash out and get it again.
