After months of central heating, heavy duty moisturisers and skin treatments, it is safe to say my skin has lost it's glow and isn't as bright as it once was. Sure I could book myself in for a facial or maybe even a skin peel but as those are pricey, require time and of course are not something I can do at home -well with ease at least - I'm not overly keen. I want something quick, easy, that can be used everyday should I wish. Enter The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum: a lightweight, affordable and nourishing dose of moisture that gently hydrates and brightens the skin in one quick step. Glowing skin shall be mine and yours too.
As far as the packaging goes in regards to The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum, it really is a case of what you see, is what you get. A small, white opaque bottle that will prevent any active ingredients from loosing potency over use, coupled with a hygienic dropper style dispenser - it is quick and easy to use, prevents spills and of course general waste of product.
The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum is a moisturising product but one with a difference, it has been created to brighten the skin and reduce dark spots too, all with a velvety soft texture that is quickly absorbed by the skin - there is no greasy residue nor heaviness and yet it leaves the skin beautifully soft. The two main ingredients are: red algae an anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory ingredient that boosts the skins circulation to create a lit from within glow; Vitamin C again to brighten the complexion and to a degree improve collagen levels. As with any serum this can be used alone after cleansing (both day and night) or layered with moisturiser for a more intense result. I've also taken to adding a few drops of The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum into my foundation to soften coverage levels, and to add a little extra radiance - additionally great if you have a dry complexion. I should add that this can be worn under make-up as it is in no way oil based, and as such will not alter the finish of any product applied on top.
Thus far I can not comment on the long-term results of The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum, as it is a fairly new product, however I can vouch that it is a very comforting serum that not only moisturises and nourishes my skin but provides a subtle radiant glow too. I have read that with continued use this may help to fade hyper-pigmentation (acne scarring and dark spots), something that I would imagine takes time but good to know none the less.
Add The Body Shop Drops of Light Brightening Serum to your shopping list and routine, if you want a quick , gentle fix to dry and dull skin without the need for a heavy or greasy textured product.
