The Body Shop has created some new gems in their latest releases. The new Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening range containsÂ red algÃ¦ extract sourced from the waters of the North Atlantic sea. Combined with vitamin C, the products help to improve the skin by correcting dark spots and brightening the skin’s natural glow.
The first product that we sampled is the Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Serum (NZ$81Â·95). This product has aÂ convenient oil dispenser which distributes a drop of cooling oil when applied to the skin. It rubs in easily, instantly refreshing the skin’s surface. There is also a subtle aroma of the red algÃ¦ and vitamin C which is pleasantly invigorating. Apply twice a day, morning and night, to achieve desired results.
The second product sampled in the range is the Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream (NZ$63Â·95). This tub is incredibly nourishing: it definitely melts into the skin, without feeling heavy and sticky. The product is light with an aroma of red algÃ¦ extract, promising to reduce the size and intensity of dark spots while hydrating the skin 24 hours a day. You should apply this liberally to reap the rewards of dewy skin.
The Body Shop may not have found the fountain of youth, but claim to have found a few drops of it in its new Drops of Youth range.Â Inspired by the regenerating cells from plants, the team used stem-cell technology to harness the active ingredients sourced from the globe into their products. Cells from edelweiss, sea holly and criste marine have been sourced for the youthful skin care range.
The edelweiss plant is known for its protective properties, originating from the high alpine mountains of Trentino-Alto, Italy. Sea holly is known for its firming properties, originating from the shores of southern Bretagne, France. Criste marine is known for its skin-renewing properties. The products are infused with these stem cell properties to hydrate and regenerate the skin.
The first product sampled is the Drops of Youth Lotion (NZ$58Â·50). It is infused with all the stem cell power to prepare and activate the skin. The product activates the senses with a fragrant aroma of the triple infused plants. It glides on to the skin effortlessly, softening the texture.
To further enhance the skin’s appearance, the second item sampled is the Drops of Youth Youth Cream, (NZ$59Â·95). When placed on top of the lotion, the cream revives the nature of the skin, giving it a soft dewy complexion. The dual power of the lotion and cream works well to enhance the youthful cells of the skin.
