The Body Shop “Drops of Youth” has some amazing products and in this post I am reviewing the Body Shop “Drops of Youth” Cream. This line is marketed as an anti ageing line and all of the products in this range have been developed using superior quality, stem cells from 3 extraordinary plants to make the skin look visibly smoother, softer and younger.
TARGET USER & INGREDIENTS
People with concerns of fine lines, wrinkles and it contains stem cells from 3 resilient plants – Edelweiss from Italian Alps, Criste Marine and Sea Holly from the Brittany Coast renownded for their renewing and restructuring properties.
Instantly: skin feels fresh, nourished, softer and appears smoother
Day after Day: pores and skin texture look refined, lines appear minimised, skin unveils and healthy luminosity and a youthful bounce.
The whole range of “Drops of Youth” has a colour theme of green and black based on their plant based ingredients and to signify evergreen skin. The packaging of the Youth Cream feels quite luxurious. It has a weight when you hold it in your hands as the body is made of glass. So, you have to be careful with handling this product.
This product comes is a single size of 50 ml and it costs SGD 52.90. It is definately on the pricier side so you might want to test out a sample before investing in it.
TEXTURE & FRAGRANCE
Before talking about the texture, I want to mention the fragrance. It is just amazing. The fragrance is so subtle yet so beautiful, very floral but not sweet. Its just a beautiful fragrance which makes the experience even better.
The cream has a very light whipped cream texture. It has a very soft cloudy texture and once applied it absorbs very quickly into the skin. I have dry skin and my skin feels instantly hydrated and supple. But inspite of being so hydrating, it doesn’t feel greasy. I usually use this under light makeup and the makeup goes on really nicely. I usually apply this morning and evening or whenever I feel like I want to smell this. 🙂
This doesn’t have any SPF so it is no ideal for sun protection. You will have to apply a layer of SPF for that.
For me, this cream was love at first use. I wanted something nourishing and hydrating for light daytime use and I got much more than that. This has amazing ingredients which do seem to work right from the beginning. I can clearly see that my skin feels visibly softer, smoother and the texture of the skin feels nourished and soft. The skin feels very healthy. I did not have much fine lines to begin with but I still feel that the skin feels smoother. This is definately worth the price and I will recommend this if you are looking to invest in a good day cream.
