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.
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.
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
