Hope you all are well and safe at on your place. The weather is behaving awfully every where. Some of my friends are facing many problems due to the storm and floods. I always pray for their safety. I hope everything will be back on its track soon :). In my city, the weather is kind of unpredictable. I’m suffering from cold, sneezing for about two weeks. Really looking forward to fall, hey it’s almost September!
Coming on to the post, the product I’m going to review is a useful product to see the atmosphere of our cities. We have to face several problems as soon as we step out of our houses. Pollution is one of the biggest problem in our cities. It causes different kinds of complications in our skin and hair. The main concern that we get from it is the premature signs of aging. The two new launched products from The Body Shop are especially made for protecting our skin from pollution and to tackle the first signs of aging. Don’t they sound interesting?
You have read my review of The Body Shop Youth Liquid Peel here. Now this is the time to test the other one.
What company says…
With an infusion of thyme and buddleia extracts and broad spectrum coverage using UVA and UVB filters, we’ve created an effective but ultra-light daily emulsion to help protect against pollution and enhance skin’s youthful appearance. This protective formula hydrates your skin and can be used as your daily moisturiser or in addition to it. First lines and signs of tired skin appear reduced, while pores and skin texture look refined.

In the mirror of my own experience
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Youth Fresh Emulsion comes in a dark green glass bottle with a pump dispenser that helps control the right amount of the product. The bottle comes in a white outer box that is similar to the Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. It has all important information about the product printed on it. The glass jar remains safe in this outer box so I didn’t throw it. The packaging is great, the dispenser of the bottle works nicely and quite unique. The only concern is the glass bottle. One should be careful with it while traveling.
The product is milky white in color and has a very pleasant smell that can be called heavenly. It’s very mild and delicate and won’t bother the people with sensitive noses. I fell in love with the fragrance of this emulsion.
The texture is perfect, neither too runny nor thick. It’s called emulsion that is a lighter version of moisturizer. But this emulsion is quite different from Vitamin E Moisture-Protect Emulsion. It’s like a serum, slightly thick but completely light.
I need just 2 pumps to cover the whole face and neck. I apply the emulsion in the morning after cleansing the skin.
I take out the product on my finger tip, rub it and apply it on all over my face and neck by giving a light hand massage. The emulsion feels so light and spreads on the skin beautifully. After 1 minute massage it gets promptly absorb into the skin. At my first application of this emulsion, I was pleasantly surprised to see how effortlessly it hydrates my skin. Just two small pump makes my skin completely moisturize without making it greasy. My skin feels soft and silky just after applying it. No need to apply anything else after that as it also has SPF 20 PA+++ to provide sun protection.. The effect lasts for whole day or till I wash my face.
I have been using it for last three weeks and I must say that I’m totally impressed with this emulsion. My skin condition was not as bad before using it but still I can see the difference very clearly. My skin is super smooth, soft and radiant (touch wood) these days. I’m not working person though and occasionally go outside my home but still must say that it protected my skin from pollution. I go for an evening walk daily and Dehradun has become quite a polluted place since the last 7-8 years.
Coming to its effect on the sign of aging, I must say that the brand’s claim can be partly true as the product makes the skin deeply moisturized and nourished from inside so process of skin aging may be become slow. The only concern from this product is its high price. I suggest you keep an eye on the discounts and offers TBS occasionally offers.

It does a really good job at moisturizing my skin and making it feel amazingly soft. It has high glycerin levels to keep the skin nourished and also has protective SPF formula.
