    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, non-greasy and easily absorbed! <3 I have been using this product for over a month now. It's very light, it doesn't feel sticky on my skin and it gets easily absorbed by the skin (most skincare products feel thick & heavy on my face leaving me wondering if I still need another layer on my face). With the Drops of Youth Essence Lotion, I can still apply serum and moisturiser without having to worry having too much on my face. I use this with The Body Shop Aloe Toner (day)/Tea Tree Mattifying Toner (night) and I apply Drops of Youth Serum a few minutes after the essence lotion dries up. Doesn't feel sticky even after 8-10hrs of sleep :) It's totally worth the money and I'm definitely getting myself another bottle when I run out! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An essential step of your daily treatment Allowing myself 6 months of using this product before coming to a conclusion: this guy is good. First of all, only a third of the bottle is used during that period of time, this is very worth your money. You would feel a bit too much to spend $29 for only 160ml of product, but you honestly only spend $2.5/month to use it. The consistency of it is like thick water, but not as thick like shower gel. Personally, I prefer to pour it on fingertip and apply on face (the cotton pad will absorb the liquid quickly and you don't have much left to use). Secondly, the scent is as lovely as the rest of products in Drop of Youth range, light floral and very "bless". It doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, absorbing quite quickly and for the first 2 times using it, I clearly saw it help minimize pores on my nose. Sometimes if I'm in a rush, I would definitely choose this lotion over any serum or cream as the only product to put on, just to say how good it is.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from "So have another drink of green elixir" Every time I use this product, I can't help but singing songs from Wicked. This 'green elixir' has been great for my skin! I use it in conjunction with the Drops of Youth Concentrate as well as the Day Cream, and my skin has never felt so good. The dry spots are finally disappearing after 2 weeks of use, and my make up stays on and doesn't flake. Absolutely love it and will continue using it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow- What a difference! I am a no frills girl- not going to get swindled by some gimmick- always keeping m eyes open. So when I enjoyed a body shop party recently I was introduced to the Drops of Youth range and loved testing them with my friends. Everything was normal - yes cleaning felt lovely etc etc but then "try the Youth Essence Lotion on ONE side of your face and not to the other and now lets moisturise" well I did so and OMG you can actually instantly, tell the difference! No tricks, no swindling, my skin feel so much softer and smoother on the side of the Youth Essence Lotion then it did with the Moisturiser alone. My cheeks looked more even as well. So I bought the lotion and suffice to say it is still doing an amazing job to this very day. I highly recommend having a party and testing a few of the lovely items with your friends because sometimes you would never try one at the shops or online. This Lotion has hugely improved my daily routine and that alone puts a smile on my face.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magick in an elegant green bottle! Already seriously in love with the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask, and very happy with all the other products in this range, I am sure that I was not alone in being excited by the release of the two new Drops of Youth products! How elegant and enticing this lotion looks in its refreshing green bottle; and how attractive it looks alongside the golden colour of my Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Essence Lotion! I am feeling totally spoilt for choice: and greatly enjoying this experience! Currently, I am using this with all the other Drops of Youth products, morning and night, and loving what they are doing for my skin, in improving the hydration, the softness and the tone. Like the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Essence Lotion and several of the serums, this lotion is sticky after it has been applied. To allow time for the stickiness to disappear - it does with both lotions - this has become my time for selecting which fragrance best suits my mood and slathering myself in body butter and body mist! And now that I have The Body Shop Facial Massager, I am also greatly enjoying using that, sometimes just the once after applying the moisturiser, sometimes twice - after this lotion and then again after the moisturiser. It feels great! Very stimulating! And it makes perfect sense that it will help maximise the effectiveness of all these products. One of the beauticians on one of the excellent videos featured on the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Essence Lotion page advises alternating the products one uses to get the best from them, so that your skin does not become too used to any one beauty treatment. I have always done this with shampoos. I cannot see myself ever choosing between the Drops of Youth and Oils of Life ranges. I love them both - together with some of the Pomegranate products - and will undoubtedly use one range for a few weeks and then switch to another, and keep alternating. As well as mixing them up a bit. If you have not tried this lotion, buy it now, as I believe you will love both it and the Facial Massager!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lotion/serum I've been using the drops of youth line for ages now and I love them all! I use the lotion immediately after toning and before moisturiser and it's wonderful. Very light gel/water like texture like a serum and soaks in fast. Feels fresh and it has made a difference to my overall skin look and feel. I would highly recommend all Drops of Youth products!
