The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel

Purchased by me

Exfoliation is essential for aging skin. Turning over those nasty dead skin cells is crucial to revealing radiant youthful skin. The Body Shop Drops of Youth Peel ($25) is a quick and easy way to recapture that youthful glow. All my beauty blogger friends have been raving about this, so I had to see what all the buzz was about. I purchased it when The Body Shop had a 40% off sale recently and snagged it for only $15! *pats my own back*

This clear exfoliating gel morphs into a peel as you massage it into your skin, gently lifting away dead skin, dirt, and any residual makeup. You apply two pumps to cleansed dry skin and massage in (avoid the eye area) for about 20 seconds until the gel balls up as it grabs onto the dead cells and impurities on the skin. Being the skeptic that I am, I wasn’t convinced that those balls of goo were actually my dead, dry skin so I tried it a second time and no balls! This also assured me I had done a thorough job of exfoliating. Complete by rinsing and patting dry. There is something both gross and satisfying about seeing those balls of goo!

I didn’t experience any tingling or irritation and the peel is much gentler than some scrubs which is perfect for my sensitive skin. I was amazed at how the dry patches around my nose had immediately vanished! My skin felt so fresh, and squeaky clean with no tightness or dryness. It was so soft and supple, had a luminous glow and I didn’t have to use harsh exfoliating beads or acids! I then applied my current overnight facial oil and woke to bright, happy skin.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Peel is made with edelweiss, sea holly and criste marine plant stem cells and is 100% vegan. Directions say to use twice a week which I feel is a good measure. If you are new to exfoliation his would be a great product to start with.

Bottom Line: This stuff is amazing! It’s a safe, gentle, super effective peel and doesn’t cost a months rent. Highly recommended especially for over 40 gals!
