The Body Shop Drops of Youth

the body shop drops of youth
I was introduced to The Body Shop Drops of Youth line back in 2015 and like almost all products from The Body Shop, they were an instant hit. One of the products I reviewed then, (the Youth Concentrate) is also below… but the packaging has changed and because this is my current routine I wanted to include it again.

I had been using Murad’s White Brilliance line which I love, but my bank account does not. I still use the Murad White Brilliance Cleanser with my Clarisonic, but with my resolution of simplifying skincare I am going to try and stick with these because my skin feels great, and they are more budget-friendly. I have been using all three of these since the middle of November, so while the originals were PR samples, the photos are of the new ones I bought as I was almost out of the cream and new products photograph better.

too faced naughty kisses & sweet cheeks


Lip injections are not something I’ve ever thought about getting, but I’ve always been intrigued by products that say they make your lips look more plump. None have ever worked for me, but I’ve never used one that was literally called ‘Lip Injection‘ until this past weekend.

This festive lip and blush set features a deluxe-size of the Lip Injection Ultimate Lip Plumper, two Lip Injection Glossy lip glosses in deluxe sizes, and three coordinating mini sizes of the Love Flush Long Lasting 16-Hour Blushes—all wrapped up in this pretty package. It includes Lip Injection Glossy lip glosses that deliver ultimate lip sheen and three coordinating mini blushes for flushed cheeks. Treat lips to tints of juicy color with the mini, bestselling Lip Injection Ultimate Lip Plumper, and create a pretty pop of color with Love Flush Long Lasting 16-Hour Blushes in Baby Love, Crazy In Love, and Dream Lover. Give it as one gift or gift each pair separately.
