The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Eye Concentrate 10ml
About this deal
Personally, my tastes for eye products leans towards the emollient, so this is a tad too light for me. The soothing, antioxidant and skin-protecting abilities of oat are so well-established that it is an active natural ingredient covered by the FDA OTC Skin Protectant monograph in the US, meaning that colloidal oatmeal can be claimed as an active ingredient on the INCI list and Aveeno is a mass-market brand built around oat-containing products. And while I didn't review it last year either, the Nutriganics line also had a Bouncy Sleeping Mask too.
As the formula absorbed into my skin I felt a tightening and firming sensation, but not excessively, it’s highly moisturising too. With a unique cooling applicator that gently presses onto the skin, this eye cream refreshes on contact with the skin leaving your eyes feeling awake. I definitely recommend this product for anyone who wants to start off with a good, economical eye treatment! Completing the trio is the liquid peel, which has a gel-like consistency and is, curiously, massaged into dry skin. To maximize the benefits, use Eye Concentrate both AM and PM by rolling the applicator in an 8 shape around both eyes.e. pressing it down as far as it goes), you will end up with a huge glob of serum that’s too much for one application.
It does have shimmer in it, that does help to brighten the eye area and improve the overall appearance of the eye. Known to retain up to 1000X its weight in water, it helps to keep skin looking plump with moisture and feeling soft and smooth. My favourite product, obviously, is the Bouncy Sleeping Mask - not only is it super fun to play with because of its novel texture, it's also moisturizing but lightweight. The cooling metal roller-ball applicator is also a pump making this hands-free eye treat a perfect traveling companion.You can usually find it right in the very first spot of the ingredient list, meaning it’s the biggest thing out of all the stuff that makes up the product. Anyway, we'll be looking at all these products in the Drops of youth collection - Lotion, Eye Concentrate, Youth Concentrate, Cream, and Bouncy Sleeping Mask, and as always, we're going to take a closer look at how these products work! Joining its counterpart for the face from a few years ago, this refreshing take on an eye treatment delivers more than just younger looking eyes. The Youth Concentrate - I started using a daily serum after I experienced unexplained skin flaking at the workplace.
It’s an ingredient whose safety hasn’t been questioned so far by anyone (at least not that we know about). This is sort of more like a cross between a gel and a cream, and also like all the other products in the line, has that gorgeous fresh citrus scent (again, thanks to the citrus fragrance ingredients - not that great for skin in large amounts, but they smell great). The ingredients in the Drops of Youth Essence Lotion are Water, humectants (Propanediol), and Alcohol Denat.INCI is a list of the standardized and internationally accepted names used in the declaration of ingredients on cosmetic and personal care products. Enriched with Community Trade organic babassu oil from Brazil, with three plant stem cells: edelweiss from the Italian Alps, criste marine and sea holly from the Brittany Coast. Instantly refresh your eye contour and smooth out the appearance of lines, bags and fatigue for younger-looking eyes. But I wouldn't recommend this as a product for exfoliation per se, because the level of Salicylic Acid is probably quite low, and when I tested the pH of the product, it came out to about pH6. Some people may have concerns about the alcohol in the product, but I'm guessing it's present in there to aid penetration of the lotion, as well as any subsequent skincare products.
We also checked Prospector for sodium hyaluronate versions actually used in cosmetic products and found that the most common molecular weight was 1. It also contains antioxidant polyphenols, tocopherols (types of vitamin E) and carotenoids and it's one of the best plant sources of skin-identical emollient, Squalene. I know for some people, a lightweight texture is important for sleeping masks, because they don't want the sleeping mask to get all over their pillow and end up waking up to a sticky pillow. So citric acid is an exfoliant, that can - just like other AHAs - gently lift off the dead skin cells of your skin and make it more smooth and fresh. Once I’d worked that out I applied the formula in a sideways figure of 8 shape around the contours of my eyes, patting the area just lightly to help in any excess formula absorb into the skin.
After using this product religiously morning and night for a couple of weeks, I really do think it’s making a difference to my under eye area, it really helps to smooth my skin first thing in the morning before I apply my make-up and is a lovely cooling treat on my extra tired eyes last thing at night. While it's hard to tell, it could be indicative of a lower alcohol content, which means that given my preferences for less alcohol in my products, I definitely prefer the newer version. I'm not a fan of some of the citrus fragrance ingredients (Linalool, Citronellol, Limonene), but they are there in such small amounts that it probably shouldn't bother anyone. We’re talking a mere flight of stairs here Sweeties, no real effort by far but do I want to be doing that on a routine basis?
