When it comes to naturally sourced, quality ingredients, I trust The Body Shop to deliver on excellence and efficiency. With each new innovation the brand is improving formulas and staying on-trend with cutting edge technology to improve treatments that target a variety of skin concerns. Today I am sharing a few of the newest additions to my daily routine which have been yielding fabulous results!
The Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion has a water based serum-like consistency formulated for use after cleansing. The light, cooling liquid enhances the complexion with a blend of Wheat Germ Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Argan, Aloe, Antioxidants and Biotin. It also plumps the skin with lush layers of moisture while increasing the absorption and efficacy of all products that follow. Adding this extra step to your skincare routine is definitely worth it because it eradicates dryness, soothes and softens! I use it in the morning before moisturizer and at night before my serums, treatments and oils. Since it is quite watery (in a skin quenching, hydrating way) you do have to wait a minute or two for it to dry before applying anything else but on hot summer days it feels calming and refreshing! The Lotion retails for $20.00.
The Drops of Youth Essence Lotion is similar to the Aqua Boost in that it is also meant to be used after cleansing and prior to product application. Even though both products are categorized as “lotion” they aren’t your typical face creams. The watery base feels like a quenching drink for dehydrated skin and instantly revives your face. You can use one or the other depending on your needs but I’ve been using them together! With an invigorating blend of botanical and plant extracts, this lightweight gel-water formula deeply replenishes, locks in moisturize, plumps and minimizes pores for a luminous finish. Once the formula dries my skin feels rejuvenated, resilient and supple! The Drops of Youth Lotion Retails for $22.00.
Lately I’ve been very fond of Vitamin C for its ability to brighten, protect against pollutants and fade dark spots, discoloration, blemishes and hyperpigmentation for a flawless complexion. The Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturizer targets “dull, fatigued, grumpy skin” to promote natural radiance, hydration and softness.
This lush orange gel has 60X the Vitamin C power of an orange and coats skin in light, dewy layers that works well under makeup (once dry) or as a night treatment. It retails for $25.00 and a little goes a long way!
I’ve been a big fan of The Body Shop’s Oils Of Life Collection and last Christmas I even gifted the ladies in my family some of the fabulous oils and moisturizers. The new Intensely Revitalizing Sleeping Cream pampers and repairs your skin as you snooze with 7 essential oils sourced globally. This cushiony, anti-aging cream has a silky gel consistency that soaks in and hydrates all night with a potent blend of: Egyptian Black Cumin Oil (high in antioxidants), Chilean Rosehip Oil (high in omega 3 and 6), Chinese Camellia Oil, French Lavender Oil, Tunisian Rosemary Oil, African Geranium Oil, Roman Camomile, Mediterranean Marjoram Leaf Oil, Orange Peel Oil from South East Asia and Lavandin Oil from Provence which stimulates the fusion of elastin and collagen. Because of all the natural ingredients, the cream does have an earthy, botanical scent with hints of spice but I don’t mind the smell because my skin looks smooth, blemish-free and healthy! The Sleeping Cream retails for $44.00.
