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.

The Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayHi everyone! I am super excited for today’s post, because not only am I reviewing part of an amazing collection from The Body Shop… at the end you have a chance to win it all! A few months ago I reviewed the Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate and still use it daily – and now all 3 of these products have worked their way in to my routine as well.

Drops of Youth Concentrate | $36.00
The Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayThe Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayThe Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayOur certified organic range has been created for the first signs of ageing. This innovative concentrate helps to enhance surface skin condition, leaving it looking smoother, fresher and healthier.
• Helps enhance surface skin condition
• Smoothes
• Instantly moisturising
• 99% of ingredients are of natural origin
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Babassu Oil from Brazil

First off, the packaging is fantastic – the cap is a dropper, so your fingers never need to touch product that is going back in to the container. I use it every evening after washing my face, and first thing in the morning before applying lotion. It takes 2-3 drops to cover my entire face and neck, and it absorbs extremely fast. I have noticed a slight improvement in the hyperpigmentation under my eyes… but no real improvement in the fine lines. The reviews are through the roof though and I’ve only been using it for about 3 weeks, so maybe over a bit more time.

Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask | $30.00

Discover our Drops of Youth™ Bouncy Sleeping Mask, enriched with Edelweiss stem cells. Designed to be left on overnight, it leaves skin looking bouncier and feeling replenished.
• Youth-enhancing formula for bouncier, younger-looking skin
• Unique bouncy, memory shape texture
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Babassu Oil

Ohhhhhhh….. This is my everything right now. Check out that little spoon for scooping the cream out… it makes me feel so fancy! And every evening when I open the jar… it has completely settled in to itself and it looks brand new. Every night. I used far too much the first couple nights, and because I always end up sleeping on my side it was all over my pillowcase, but once I cut the amount I thought I needed in about half, I was in love. My skin feels extremely soft and smooth, and I love that I don’t have to worry about washing it off in the morning.

Wonderblur Face Primer | $25.00
The Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayThe Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayThe Body Shop - Drops of Youth GiveawayWonderblur™ face primer is a lightweight formula that instantly smoothes skin texture, visibly reducing fine lines and pores for an even, flawless finish.
• Smoothes the appearance of fine lines
• Flawless finish
• 12-hour hydration
• Formulated with Edelweiss stem cells
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Babassu Oil

The consistency reminds me a lot of Instablur but not as thick. It melts very nicely in to my skin and reduced the look of the pores on and around my nose significantly. I find I’ve been reaching for this over my hourglass primer serum lately which is great for my bank account too!

And now here’s your chance to win all 3! Check out all the ways you can enter below. Contest is open to Canadian residents, and closes on March 31. The winner will be contacted by email and has 24 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen. Good luck!!
