As I mentioned in one of my recent reviews, I’ve become a little bit obsessed with vitamin C serums. I love vitamin C’s brightening effect on my skin, and I have some peace of mind knowing that I’m being proactive about anti-aging. So, when given the opportunity to try Image Vital C Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion, I jumped at the chance to try out a vitamin C formulation for the body.Image Vital C Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion features “four highly active forms of vitamin C” and “stars anti-aging ingredients often reserved for the face” (imageskincare.com). It is formulated for dry and dehydrated skin, sensitive skin, and redness-prone skin. This is a bonus for me as my hands tend to become severely dry during the winter months.
Image’s Vital C Complex consists of L-ascorbic acid, BV-OSC, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, and Ascorbyl Palmitate. It also contains hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, and shea butter as moisturizing ingredients. According to Image’s website, this formulation binds water to the skin for lasting moisture, lessens the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and redness, and supports collagen.
Personal Use and OpinionsImage Vital C Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion has a very pleasant smell (orange candy comes to mind) and applies nicely. It leaves a slight sticky residue for just a few minutes but absorbs relatively quickly. It definitely delivered the moisture I needed for my hands this time of year and also helped quell the dreaded “winter itch.”
Luckily, my skin does not exhibit any obvious signs of aging just yet, so I can’t speak to its anti-aging benefits. However, I feel confident that Image’s Vital C Complex is helping to keep those signs away!
I really enjoyed using Image Vital C Hydrating Hand and Body Lotion. It is very effective as a daily body moisturizer and brings the added benefit of anti-aging.
