Hello beautiful and welcome back to my blog!
So you may or may not know that I have a YouTube channel which you can find here. I was recently invited to The Body Shop event in which they introduced the Drops of Light range. Anyone who follows my blog or my YouTube channel will know that I am an avid skincare fanatic so this was right up my alley. I am very open and honest in terms of whether skincare products work for me or not because I believe that I would never review a product I do not believe in or that does not work for me. So grab a cup of tea and get ready to read all about this new range!
P.S: Due to the fact that I do not really suffer from dark marks, I asked my mom to put this to the test as well so this is not a bias post and is completely fair. She does suffer from dark spots on certain areas on her face.
ABOUT THE DROPS OF LIGHT RANGE
The new Drops of Light Pure Healthy Brightening range is a daily regime with red algae extract that helps to achieve multiple dimensions of brighter, healthy-looking skin. Brighter skin isn’t only about reducing dark spots, which is why they’ve created a 5-in-1 formula to improve healthy brightness, translucency, even tone, minimize the appearance of pores, while leaving the skin feeling smooth and supple.
The multi-benefit range is suitable for sensitive skin (big plus for me, as I’m very sensitive to certain skincare products), it combines the natural power of red algae, known for its brightening and anti-dark spot correction benefits, plus the power of vitamin C, one of the most potent antioxidants renowned to support brightening and plumping skin with moisture. Helping you to be the best and brightest version of yourself every single day!
In my range I have the Clarifying Foam Wash, Pure Healthy Brightening Serum and Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream.
CLARIFYING FOAM WASH
Cleanse and clarify your complexion morning and night with this rich, creamy foam wash. Massage gently into a luxurious lather that purifies without stripping the skin. This retails for R150 for a 125ml bottle.
My Thoughts: It’s a great face wash. It really makes my skin feel so clean and fresh while smooth at the same time. In my opinion it does not really foam that much so I wouldn’t call it a foaming face wash. Other than that, I loved this. My mom loved the face wash just as much.
PURE HEALTHY BRIGHTENING SERUM
Replenish and illuminate skin with this lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-sticky serum. It glides effortlessly to deliver efficient brightening brightening whilst leaving skin feeling instantly supple and hydrated. Apply 1-2 drops to skin morning and night and massage in. After 4 weeks skin imperfections and yellowness are reduced, pores look minimised and skin looks brighter and more translucent. This retails for R295 for 30ml.
My thoughts: I loved this serum after the face wash. I feel it is hydrating, however it is what it is – a serum. I would love to test this as a primer for my skin before make-up application and then see how it works. My mom feels that it’s not super beneficial to the skincare regime but it is very hydrating and she loves the glow it gives her skin.
PURE HEALTHY BRIGHTENING DAY CREAM
Nourish skin with this highly moisturizing day cream. Its silky texture melts onto your skin and is clinically proven to significantly reduce the number, size and intensity of dark spots while delivering 24H hydration. Instantly skin texture is smoother, softer and re-plumped with moisture. After 4 weeks skin is brighter, looks healthier, more even toned and clarified. This retails for R240 for 50ml.
My thoughts: I loved this cream as I’ve never felt a face lotion so hydrating. I’ve only been using the product for 2 weeks so I still have to deliver the final verdict, however my mom has definitely noticed a significant change in her dark spots. They seem to have brightened, however they are still there so do not expect miracles to happen overnight.
Overall I can honestly say that these products are really great. They did not irritate my skin at all and they really helped in terms of reducing the size of pores. I’m impressed by how my mom’s dark marks have lightened and I would definitely recommend it for people struggling with dark marks!
