I am actually rather angry at myself for not purchasing this product sooner. The Body Shop resurfacing peels have always been in high esteem throughout the beauty community, but I like to make my own mind up about products.
Drops of Light uses red algae extract, a Vitamin C derivative to brighten skin throughout the entire range. In regards to the Drops of Light Pure resurfacing liquid peel, transforming gel-to-peel technology traps and removes impurities and dirt. Revealing resurfaced skin, that appears brighter and smoother.
I am familiar with the range as I have previously used the cream cleanser and eye cream. The range is highly suitable and recommended for current and past acne sufferers, such as myself. Due to its brightening and resurfacing qualities, it can help improve acne scarring and the overall texture of the skin.
How does it perform?
From the first use of this product, my personal results were amazing. My skin looked and felt clearer than it has for probably the last four years.
However, I never get too complacent with the first usage of products. Ideally, you’ll need to use the product consistently for at least 6 weeks to see if it is compatible with your skin type. I find this particularly important with my skin, having combination skin means some products work very well the first time I use them. However, after regular use they can create adverse effects such as dry patches and breakouts. With acne prone and eczema prone skin, you realise the skin is sensitive.
Generally my skin can be a little bumpy from acne scars (or current spots, my daily annoyance), broken capillaries and open pores. After just one use of this peel my skin was fives times smoother than before and visibly brightened. Even my mother commented on how bright my skin looked, and trust me, she is usually so oblivious I could walk through the house with green hair and she wouldn’t blink an eyelid.
The peel literally removes the dead skin cells, and it feels like a salon chemical peel in the way that it works – and the results you get. Remember that although the peel is designed to be used on the face, it is not limited to this area of skin. If you have cracked heels, dry elbows or even dry patches on your neck, you can use the peel to shed that skin off. It really works anywhere!
I have been using the peel once a week for about four weeks now, and every time I get the same consistent results. Naturally after using something abrasive to the skin such as a liquid peel, you must ensure you moisturise adequately. I’d also recommend an SPF the next day.
Shedding the dead skin cells and pollution off the top layers of the skin, reveals an innate glow. And let’s face it, in 2019 who doesn’t want their skin to glow?
If you are looking to transform your skin this May, this is the cult product you need.
