Body Shop Drops of Light Peel

This peel from The Body Shop claims to quickly brighten the appearance your skin after the first use. The gel formula transforms to peel and gently peels off impurities and dead skin cells to reveal healthy looking resurfaced skin.

  • With brightening Red Algae Extract harvested from the North Atlantic.
  • Rich in vitamin C, minerals and nutrients, red algae has grown in bracing oceans for millions of years.

It’s a bit weird, really. Because it’s not a peel that you put on, wait for it to dry and wash off. It’s a gel that you rub into your skin, then clumps form that make you wonder if it’s dead skin cells/dirt or the product itself clumping as your rub. I have no idea if this thing is a gimmick or not or of it’s actually taking my skin cells off. I saw a review where someone claimed to have tried on a plastic surface with rubber gloves and the lumps still appeared. So who knows. It reminds me a bit like PVA glue. If you’ve ever put PVA glue on your hands as a kid and then rubbed it off, you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t, then you missed out.

If it’s real dead skin cells or not, it’s satisfying.

I like this product a lot. My skin felt very clean after use and a bit bright. Woo.

    Oh it sounds interesting! I’m like you I think the novelty factor would keep me using it, as I don’t have any products like this at the moment.

    Not sure if it would be gentle enough though for my sensitive skin? The word ‘peel’ has me unsure, haha!

    I had the biggest allergic reaction this this which was a super shame BUT I have found it’s brilliant for keeping feet soft and smooth!

    I love PVA glue for the therapeutic ability to peel it off so this product really appeals. It’s good also that you skin felt more moisturised I will have to give this a go Lucy x
