The Body Shop is known for launching new in skin & body almost every other month. Their latest skincare range was Drops Of Light that works on skin brightening. I was quite excited to try out the range because dullness is something I always struggle with. I tried this range for good one month and will share my experience with you all. There are 3 products – Pure Brightening Serum , Day Cream & Foam Wash
Our Drops of LightTM range is made with the nest raw ingredients that are sourced from around the globe. We harness the skills of artisan farmers and add our expertise to create these effective products that are ef cacious to use. Community Trade marula oil from Namibia is used in our Purifying Foam and Community Trade aloe vera from Mexico is used in our Essence Lotion and Serum.
The range has white & rose gold packaging. It has 3 products –
Drops Of Light Pure Clarifying Foam Wash (Rs 1525 for 125 ml)
Cleanse and clarify your complexion morning and night with this rich, creamy foam wash. Massage gently into a luxurious lather that puri es without stripping the skin.
The foam wash comes in a wide tube with a flip top cap. Pretty basic yet effective packaging that is travel friendly as well. The cleanser has a nice mild scent and a pearly fluffy texture. I take a pea size amount and massage it gently on face & neck.
It lathers up pretty well and makes skin squeaky clean. It takes off dirt & grime but my dry skin feels stretchy after using it. I avoid using it more than once because it kind of strips off moisture. This face wash would be good for oily skin though.
Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Day Cream (Rs 2050 for 50 ml)
Nourish skin with this highly moisturising day cream. Its silky texture melts onto your skin and is clinically proven to signi cantly 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.
The cream comes in a heavy glass jar with a huge plastic screw cap. The cream is of white translucent texture. It almost feels like a gel-cream. The texture is water like and absorbs into the skin almost immediately. In a day cream I always prefer some level of sun protection especially when it has brightening properties.
I used it for almost 4 weeks and didn’t see much difference. Also I find it a bit too rich for my acne prone skin. I would love to use it again during winters since it is rich but not greasy. I like how my skin looks plumped and smooth after a week long use. Also since it doesn’t have spf you can use it as a night cream as well.
Drops Of Light Pure Healthy Brightening Serum (Rs 2450 for 30 ml)
Now coming to the most important product from this range. The Pure Healthy Brightening Serum comes in an opaque white heavy glass bottle with a dropper. I prefer droppers over pumps as you can control the amount of product you want to use each time. I used to take 2-3 drops of this serum and apply it all over face & neck in patting motions. The serum is translucent with a mild fragrance.
I find the brightening serum quite moisturising, during summers you can get away only with the serum. I follow up with a sunscreen during the day and a moisturising cream during night. I used it twice daily but didn’t see much change in my skin. It looked the same with blemishes and dullness still there. I used it continuously for 30 days but apart from moisture didn’t see it doing anything.
