Today, The Body Shop is more than just a cosmetic brand that sells makeup and skincare.
Their dedication for being so involved with preserving and helping to rewild the world, enriching the environments of many endangered animals (like the Malaysian tiger ), helping wild animals to thrive in their natural habitat. The Body Shop is now a part of a new global cosmetics group Natura & Co working together with other cosmetic brands to make beauty a force for good and for change. All of their products are cruelty free and they are constantly fighting to end animal testing in cosmetics globally forever.
I simply love the fact that they are so involved in creating a better world for us, working fairly with farmers and suppliers and helping communities thrive through a Community Trade program, being 100% vegetarian and always and forever being firmly against animal testing and cruelty.
I am really grateful to be able to discover and incorporate some of The Body Shop products in my skin care routine.
Thanks to Hivency and The Body Shop I have received 2 skin care products from the Drops of Youth line: Youth Bouncy Eye Mask and Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Eye Mask (20ml), is a power-nap for your eyes in a small and cute green jar. This product is 100% vegan, dermatological & ophthalmologically tested and it has been designed to help with depuffing bags under the eyes.
Enriched with cucumber extract, Community Trade Babasu oil from Brazil and 3 plant stem cells ( Edelweiss from the Italian Alps known for its protective properties on collagen and hyaluronate levels, Criste Marine and Sea Holly from the Brittany Coast known for their renewing and restructuring properties ) this product can be applied to instantly give tired eyes a fresh and rested look or used overnight as a mask to boost and wake up your skin and make it look younger and healthier.
This refreshing, non-sticky formula helps address the first signs of ageing to help skin bounce back to a more youthful appearance.
I used it in the morning in a thin layer, before I applied my makeup and also during night as a mask and I was more than pleasant with the results. My concealer looks great over this eye gel, my under eye area looks and feels fresh, more plum and elastic. I find this product extremely moisturizing and calming, it feels like it cools down the skin around my eyes and seals the moisture in the skin. It does exactly what it says and it doesn't take a long time to see results. In less than a week my small dark circles were looking better, the skin was more bright and soft.
I used to wake up with my skin really dry but since I use this gel mask, my skin around my eyes looks amazing, refreshed and like I had a moisture injection while I was sleeping. With every application my skin around my eyes was more hydrated and fine lines appeared to be smoothed. This is one of those products that does what it claims without costing a fortune and without being tested on animals.
If you worry about mineral oil, paraffin and petrolatum,The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Eye Mask has none of that.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask (90ml)
Every single word in this description above is simply correct and true; once applied to the skin The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask instantly melts and becomes one with the skin, without leaving behind shine or a sticky film. This is a youth enhancing skin product that helps fight the effect of pollution on skin, helping to preserve a youthful and healthy appearance.
Just like the rest of the products from the Drops of Youth line, Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is enriched with 3 plant stem cells; Edelweiss, Sea Holly and Criste Marine, helping fight the first signs of ageing. Stem cells are the renewal engine of a plant. Making it thrive and renew, they are one of the strongest regenerating powers in nature.
I applied this product as a last step in my night skin care routine and instantly my skin felt super soft, supple, moisturized and really happy. My skin is really dry at times, specially during cold months and this night mask is really a life saver as my skin was so thirsty and uncomfortable. Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is non comedogenic and I think this will help restore your skin after a harsh and over drying acne treatment that sucked the life out of your skin.
When I woke up and I saw how plum and soft my skin was I decided to use this mask during day too, over my daily moisturizer and before my makeup, I mean why not ? Loved the result! Foundation looks really good over this because it has glycerin and dimethicone, so Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask not just for when u are sleeping !
This was for the first time when I used skin care with plant stem cells and I was really impressed with the results. I dont know if the plant stem cells really worked and regenerated my skin over night or if it was just a placebo effect that I got. Whatever it is it works really good and my skin looks happy and restored. What do you think about the use of plant stem cells in cosmetics, do you think it really works to revive and regenerate human skin ?
