I haven’t tried many products from The Body Shop’s skincare range. However, the few products I have tried, I did really enjoy! I recently received The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel and I couldn’t wait to try it out.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth range has been formulated to tackle the first signs of ageing, helping to get rid of any wrinkles and fine lines before they become clearly visible. The Drops of Youth Liquid Peel is a new product in the range, and contains plant stem cells, edelweiss, and sea holly. It promises to exfoliate the skin and gently get rid of any impurities by peeling off dirt, dead skin cells and residuals from the skin, and leaving your skin feeling fresh and youthful-looking from the first use. With continued use, it claims to make your complexion appear smoother and more luminous – and who wouldn’t want that!?
The first thing I noticed about this product is its very unique consistency. It’s described as a ‘gel-to-peel’ consistency, so once you pump this onto your hand it feels like a gel, then as you start to rub this into your skin and continue to do so for about 20 seconds using circular motions, it transforms into a peel – similar to a peel-off face mask. As it turns into a peel, the product grabs hold of any impurities from the surface of the skin, leaving your skin feeling fresh and smooth once you rinse it off.
I really enjoy using this product and love how innovative it is. It also leaves my skin feeling super fresh and cleansed, as promised. However, the only thing I don’t like is that it’s not one of those products you can use in a rush. Once the product transforms into a peel, it can take some time and effort to rinse off. I normally use a flannel to do this, and it does get the job done, but I would prefer this to rinse off a bit quicker. Having said that, it isn’t recommended to use this every single day, but around 2-3 time a week, so I happily use this on those days when I’ve got a little bit more time to dedicate to my skincare routine.
