I know it sounds biased, but The Body Shop is probably one of my favorite skincare line. All the products are 100% natural and not tested on animals. Some are even vegan! I stopped by the store this weekend to pick up this month’s goodies featuring the drops of youth skincare collection. I only had these products for a short time, but I will be going into depth how I felt using it and what the products aim to do. These products have three plant stem cells in it to leave skin clean and free from pollutants to achieve a healthy and youthful looking skin. All the product titles are clickable!
This was a product I tried back in November and absolutely love it. My skin gets very dry in the winter and this makes the perfect exfoliant for your face, hands, as well as lips to remove all the dead skins. For face, it is recommended to use 2-3 times a week or more if necessary to really get rid of all the dead skin cells on your face. This makes the perfect smooth application for makeup. For hands, use as needed. For lips, I find it best to use with a toothbrush to really brush the dead skin cells off. This will leave the lips very smooth so that any lipstick will go on so much smoother without any roughness or dead skin.
Face: Use 1-2 pumps and massage all over face after removing makeup and cleansing. Make sure face is dry. Massage in circular motions for about a minute. Repeat the massage to brush off all the residue. It is best to do this in the bathroom sink. Wash face with warm water after. Optional: Use a toner to make sure all residue is gone.
Hands: Use one pump and massage all over hand. Massage to remove residue and rinse with warm water. Repeat for opposite hand. Pat hands dry and apply lotion.
Lips: Use one pump and brush gently over lips. Use a napkin to wipe off all reside and rinse with warm water. Apply lip moisturizer after.
This serum is targeted to tighten up the face/pores, smooth out aging lines, and make the skin feel bouncier. This serum is non-sticky and absorbs very quickly so you won’t even feel like it is there. It does have a moisturizing effect, but I do recommend using the youth cream after as well for extra moisture.
How to Use: After cleansing and toning, squeeze 1-2 drops on face and massage until it all absorbs. Follow up with youth cream after.
Price: $38 (oz) & $54 (1.7oz)
This is a daily moisturizer that has the 3 plant stem cells as talked about above to leave the skin clean, refreshing, and smooth. This also helps reduce the first signs of aging. The cream is air-whipped so it is very light on the face, which makes it a perfect everyday moisturizer.
How to Use: Apply on face in a circular motion after cleanser, liquid peel, toner, and serum. Avoid the eye areas. A little goes a long way!
I always been a fan of sheet masks because there are so many out there and it’s just very easy to use. I love that the same drops of youth formula are in this mask, so I know the products are all natural and has the same plant stem cells as the other products in the line. This mask will leave the skin looking more radiant and feeling smoother after just one use.
How to Use: Open package and apply to face after cleansing. Leave on for 15 minutes and continue rest of your skincare routine (toning, serum, moisturizer).
