It’s been a while since I’ve done a good old beauty review post, and I miss it! I don’t know about you but sometimes I get stuck in the same old products which I use again and again; I love them, but it’s great to try out some new things. I’ve recently seen a lot beauty bloggers and influencers raving about The Body Shop’s new range called Drops of Youth, in particular the liquid peel, so I decided to give it a go and see if it lived up to these high expectations!
So, is it worth the hype?
The simple answer is: yes. For a home use exfoliating peel the Drops of Youth is one of the best I have ever come across for doing it’s job. I mean seriously, if you like proof that a product is working then this is the one for you; you can actually feel and see the dead skin coming off under your fingertips!
It’s super easy to use, I literally applied two pumps to my face and massaged onto my skin. The packaging recommends massaging for 30 secs – 1 min about I could feel the dead skin being removed after a few seconds! I don’t really know if this is a reflection on my skin, perhaps it’s very dead?!! And it’s quite gross to describe really but I loved the feeling of all the horrible impurities and dead skin coming off and being able to wash it all away! Afterwards my skin felt soft, fresh, clean and looked significantly brighter. The sensation of the peeling may not be for everyone but if you like your skincare products to pack a punch I would thoroughly recommend it. It also does all of this without stinging or making the skin red or sensitive at all; top marks from me!
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel retails at £18 which I think is reasonable for a naturally active skin peel. It also is part of The Body Shop’s 100% vegan and cruelty free range which is even better! Overall, I was super impressed with the product and I’m very keen to try the rest of the range!
