The Body Shop | Drops of Youth

The Body Shop is one of the brands I was introduced in my very early age (as early as 8-year-old), one of the first skin care items that I owned at that age from the brand was the cute animal fruit soap. The brand have been one of the most trusted and are well-known for their body care. I was actually got hocked off the body care from them for a while now, as a beauty blogger I get to try new stuff where some times I do realize I do miss on some of my stables that I have loved for ever. And here we’re once again with one of my favorite brands The Body Shop. I was sent out a couple of new skin care items from their Drops Of Youth collection. The collection carries a great range of skin care from cleanser to serum, moisturizer, eye cream, masks and even essence. The Drop OF Youth collection is enriched with 3 plant stem cells: edelweiss from the Italian alps, criste marine and sea holly from the Brittany coast and Community Trade organic babassu oil from Brazil and 100% vegan. I got to try out:

  • Youth Gentle Foaming Wash
  • Youth Bouncy Eye Mask

Up first is the Youth Gentle Foaming Wash (C$20 for 150 mL) which instantly cleanses and removes impurities, leaving skin fresh and replenished. This Foaming wash is enriched with 3 plant stem cells and works great on all skin texture even sensitive one. The Youth Gentle Foaming wash doesn’t dry out skin at all, I’m really particular with my face washes for the fact that I already have a very dry and sensitive skin and using cleanser with harsh chemicals do rip off my skin. I love to use foaming cleanser during my nightly routine, its light, removes my makeup and doesn’t dry out my skin.
The packaging is very practical, and easy to use. I found two pump was good enough to clean my face and nick area.

Up next is the Youth Bouncy Eye Mask (C$ 32 for 20 mL) is a hydrating mask that instantly give tired looking eyes a power nap. It’s enriched with cucumber extract and plant stem cells. You can use it as a sleeping mask after your nightly routine for more smother looking under eye skin that looks healthy or apply it during the day for an extra boost to tired looking under eye area. The formula is non sticky and addresses the first signs of aging by bouncing back to more youthful looking skin. It helps to depuff under eye bags and fades under eye darks circles. The formula is light and carries a gel like texture and works like a protecting thin-film on skin.

Bottom line I find the products are promising and works effectively on skin. You see instant results with both Youth Gentle Foaming wash and Youth Bouncy Eye mask skin feels and looks soft, smooth and fresh. The Drops Of Youth collection carries a great range of skin care, there are some products like Youth Concentrate Face and Eye serum that I really want to test. You can now find the whole collection of Drops Of Youth in store and online at The Body Shop.
