Hello beauties!

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!

Have you tried this product? What did you think?

Hey there lovelies!

Today I wanted to tell you about a very exciting launch event that I attended last week. I was absolutely delighted to be asked by Danielle, the lovely founder of ground breaking new skincare product OhMySkin (OMS) to attend the event as a model to demonstrate the product and tell the audience about how my skin felt afterwards. I was super excited about not only being invited to such a brilliant launch event but also to try a product I had heard so many amazing things about!

 

The launch night was held in Walton on Thames, at Bridgeman’s luxury furniture showroom; the perfect backdrop for such an elegant event. When I arrived I was blown away by how beautiful the set up looked and the amazing decorations. The product was displayed pride of place of course which looked absolutely fantastic.

 

 

So what is the product?

OhMySkin is a new and exciting skincare brand which has burst onto the scene with it’s revolutionary Exfoliating and Resurfacing Mask for all skin types. The unique formula contains natural ingredients and active enzymes which remove dead skin cells and brighten the skin in a non-harmful way without using any microbeads or acids which are so often found in high street products. The mask is really flexible in terms of use and can be applied and removed as a ‘flash mask’ or left on for half an hour. One of the things that I find so unique about the product is Danielle’s inspiring vision for it. She told her guests at the event that she came up with the idea when, when she was working full time, she didn’t have the time to attend salons for expensive exfoliation treatments; the idea of creating a product which can give you professional results in the comfort of your own home was born! If you think you’d miss the pampering aspect of a salon – Danielle has thought of that too! The mask is sold with a luxurious Derma Cloth to remove the mask and maximise results as well as a salon headband to pamper yourself! It also comes with a 10x magnifying mirror (yes – you heard that right! And believe me what I saw in there was pretty shocking!!) which is so important to really see your skin and identify problem areas, and then to follow your journey with OMS and see the results for yourself!

 

 

Also, how gorgeous is the branding?! I am in love with that amazing green colour. So eye catching.

 

What I thought

Using the product for the first time on the evening of the launch event I was genuinely so impressed with it for several reasons. Firstly, I have very sensitive skin and I often find that exfoliation masks feel slightly ‘stingy’ on my face but OMS was gentle and worked wonders for my sensitivity. The only sensation was a slight warming feel which was really nice. Danielle applied the mask to my skin during the event to demonstrate how easy it is to apply and lots of people commented how, as it was clear, you actually couldn’t tell I had it on! Having left the mask on for 30 minutes and spritzing it with water to reactivate the enzymes I washed the mask off using the Derma cloth. I was really impressed with this too, the cloth is a really interesting texture which has a thick weave to it, it’s brilliant as it gave my skin that ‘super clean’ feeling which I love!  After removing the mask I could see that my skin was glowing softer and looked brighter, after just one application of the product I was really amazed with the immediate impact!

Something else that I was really impressed by was how Danielle has put a lot of thought into making her product eco-friendly. Microbeads and other ingredients found in many products can have a negative impact on the environment and OMS avoids all of this as well reducing packaging wastage by being totally refillable!

I was lucky enough to receive an OMS pack to take home and I have been using the mask on a weekly basis since the event a few weeks ago. I am so pleased to report that it really works and the results for me have been amazing! I am so pleased to have found this product was delighted to be part of the exciting launch!

 

The launch event was an amazing success and everyone loved the product – I got such a buzz from just being there! I was honoured to share my opinions and first impressions of the product with the guests which was easy – it’s not difficult to talk about something that you like so much! Danielle also spoke about her product with such passion it was really inspiring for me. I had a brilliant time and met some really lovely and interesting local ladies.
