New in at The Body Shop: Drops of Youth – Youth Fresh Emulsion SPF20 PA+++

Hey Sweeties,

I recently received the Youth Fresh Emulsion* from the Drops of Youth range to try out and review from The Body Shop. The only product from this range I had tried previously was the Youth Liquid Peel (here), and having got on well with it, I was intrigued to try more from the range, which aims to tackle the first signs of ageing.

When I first saw the product and read the word, ‘emulsion’ I was ready to dismiss it as just another product to unnecessarily add into my skincare routine, that probably does the same job as something else already on my bathroom shelf. In addition, I really dislike products whose title makes me question what I am actually supposed to do with it, ‘emulsion’ being one of them.

Drops of Youth – Youth Fresh Emulsion

With an infusion of thyme and buddleia extracts and broad spectrum coverage using UVA and UVB filters, we’ve created an effective but ultra-light daily emulsion to help protect against pollution and enhance skin’s youthful appearance. This protective formula hydrates your skin and can be used as your daily moisturiser or in addition to it. First lines and signs of tired skin appear reduced, while pores and skin texture look refined.

The Packaging

I have to hand it to The Body Shop, I do not think I am yet to receive or purchase a product from them that I dislike the packaging. The Drops of Youth, Youth Fresh Emulsion comes in an attractive green glass bottle with a good pump attached to it for distributing product; it looks great on its own and it looks great sat on my bathroom shelf. I also like that you can see the product inside so you won’t get caught out when it’s empty.

The Product

Despite my comments earlier about not being all that keen on the word, ‘emulsion’ I liked this Youth Fresh Emulsion product pretty much from the first use. The instructions state to apply 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and massage onto your face every morning, which I have found easy to incorporate alongside my existing skincare, and I love the ultra-lightweight formula.

At the moment I’ve got to be honest, I have great skin –redness in the morning and the odd breakout, sure, but on the whole right now I do feel my skin looks good. The fact that I keep getting asked for ID every time I try and buy a bottle of wine at my local ASDA when I’m wearing little to no makeup, is probably testament to the youthful element of these products and amen to that, ha!

Have you guys tried any of the Drops of Youth range from The Body Shop?

Until next time x

The Body Shop New Liquid Peels from the Drops of Light & Drops of Youth ranges | Review

Hey Sweeties,

I’m here with two new products from The Body Shop today in the form of liquid peels*, one from each of the Drops of Youth and Drops of Light ranges. If you cast your mind back, I have spoken about some of the Drops of Light range previously when I reviewed the new Essence Lotion and Pure Clarifying Foam Wash here; the latter I still really love using. The only other product I have tried from the Drops of Youth range was the eye concentrate (here) which while I liked, I thought it wasn’t something I would end up persisting with and I was right if I’m honest.

In regard to liquid peels, it’s not something I’m too aware of trying before so I was both intrigued and excited by these liquid peels when they arrived for me to try out.

Two New Makeup Brushes from The Body Shop for Contouring & Highlight

Hey Sweeties,

Following my recent opportunity to try out The Body Shop’s new colour crush matte lipstick in 429 Osaka Plum (here), and the matte lip liquid in 022 Paris Peony (here), I now have the pleasure of reviewing two makeup brushes from The Body Shop; the contouring brush*, and the point highlighter brush*.

The first thing to note is their appearance, both brushes (which are of course cruelty-free) have super soft synthetic bristles and gorgeous wooden handles which are incredibly dreamy to look at and hold. As you guys know, I have a fairly large collection of makeup brushes (here) and on appearance, the contouring brush and point highlighter brush both make a welcome addition.
