The Body Shop’s Nutriganics Smoothing Serum

So my plan was to start posting reviews from my trip to New York City today but I’m still exhausted and don’t have the brain power to write things up properly yet.

But I do have enough negative emotion to write a quick review about The Body Shop’s Nutriganics Smoothing Serum.

This review could just be one line: Don’t buy it; it doesn’t do anything. But I will take a few paragraphs to explain my disappointment with this product.

I’ve been using this serum at least once a day for the past two weeks. Intended to fight the “first signs of aging,” the slippery product goes on easily but other than that, it has no redeeming value. I don’t see or feel any evidence that it, “Softens, revitalises and improves skin’s suppleness,” though it does make my skin feel slipperier (but not quite “soft”) for a short while after I first apply it.

I was thinking that at a minimum this serum would pump up my forehead lines, diminishing their appearance for at least a few hours but nope, forehead lines look the same.

The box says that, “For a more energised and healthy-looking complexion, we’ve included organic buddleja and thyme, with Community Trade organic olive oil and aloe vera.” That’s nice that this product uses Community Trade and organic products but just as nice would be ingredients that actually do something.  Maybe it’s just because I spent several days in New York but my skin is looking rougher than it’s looked in a long time.

Also, the scent of this product might be a big turn-off for some people. While I don’t mind its herbal, spa-like scent, I’m sure many people would hate it.

Would I buy this again: No.
Should you buy it: No.
