In the colder months, my skin always dries out completely. I find that I end up having dry, flaky skin around my nose, eyes and mouth. It’s not pretty.

I have to bump up my skincare routine to combat this. I end up using more serums and masks to keep my skin as replenished as possible.

Lately I’ve been using The Body Shop Drops of Youth line, mainly the Bouncy Sleeping Mask and the Eye Concentrate. They’re primarily to help with aging skin, but I feel as though any product designed to reduce the signs of aging has to be good, right? After all, there’s no harm in having younger looking skin!

Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

This product is designed to give you bouncier-looking skin. It has an unusual texture; kind of like jelly. You only need a small amount and it comes with a little spatula to easily scoop it up. When you first apply it it’s sticky, however it soaks into the skin in a couple of minutes and feels great! It also feels really refreshing and cooling. This product is meant to be applied just before bed and left on overnight. If you have a beard like me, I’d avoid the area as it leaves my beard with a weird powdery feeling.

I find that the following morning my skin feels great! My moisturiser soaks in better and my skin is practically flake free all day! Winner!

Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate

I’ll be completely honest; an eye product are always the first thing I skip in my skincare routine. I’ve been using this roll-on for the past month now and I feel like I’ll definitely invest in this again. It has the same cooling sensation as the sleeping mask, which feels lovely first thing in the morning! I use a tiny amount, not even a full pump. I’d definitely recommend this if you are looking for a straightforward eye cream to help with all different skin concerns. It helps to reduce the appearance of bags, lines and fatigue.

Products from the Drops of Youth line are enriched with Edelweiss plant stem cells. Edelweiss is a plant that grows in the mountains and overtime has developed many natural defenses in order to survive the harsh conditions. It has powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which I feel is essential in skincare.

Furthermore, I really rate this line. The textures of these products are definitely different, but once you get over that; you’ll learn to love them. They’re not the most impressive of products I’ve tried, but they’re reasonably priced and would be a great addition to a skincare routine.

Until next time,
