Beautiful Skin

At the start of the year I made a conscious decision to really look after my skin and try and improve it’s overall condition to acheive #beautifulskin

I have Oily/normal combination skin and suffer from scarring and oversized pores, so if I don’t follow a strict skincare routine, I find the texture of my skin becomes really rough and oily and my pores become super magnified meaning my makeup doesn’t blend in well

As a result I visited The Body Shop. It’s not a store I’ve ever bought from, but, I thought I’d try it out as I kept seeing some of my fave YouTubers rave about their products and loving the results.

I explained to the sales assistant what my main skincare problems were and what I wanted to tackle, and she gave me some really useful advice. She recommended two products in particular…

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter – This is a product that i’ve wanted to use for some time. As I wear makeup practically everyday when I’m going to work, but one thing I find hard to do is take off my makeup before I go to bed – I know it’s really bad!

This cleansing butter is a miracle product, it has the same consistency as coconut oil. In the tin it’s solid, but once you warm it up by rubbing it in your hand you apply to a dry face of makeup, it turns into an oil. The oil gets to work immediately and saturates your makeup, after I just wipe clean with a muslin cloth and warm water.

This product smells great, it’s relaxing and works a treat so I’d definitely re-buy and recommend as it’s so much better for your skin than using a makeup wipe and just as easy to use.

My next step is to moisturise using the Drops of Youth… This product is from one of the newer skincare collections and I was not immediately sold, but thought I’d give it a try and it’s proven to be great.

I’ve been using both products for over a month and I’m really enjoying using them as a duo. This moisturiser has a weird oily consistency – a gel to water liquid care- to be correct, which I wasn’t too keen on as I have oily skin, however, once applied and massaged into the skin, it dries more matte – perfect!

The Drops of Youth also contain plant stem cells, which help restore and repair the damaged and unhealthy skin, leaving the skin softer, smoother and moisturised.

It’s safe to say that I’ll be back to try out some of their newer collections, do you have any recommendations?

  1. I have oily/normal skin too and I’ve never considered the Body Shop. I really need to start taking better care of my skin, I’m just so lazy and that’s so bad! I’ve heard fab things about Body Shop, so maybe I’ll give it a go!
