On a recent trip to Clarks Village in Street, Somerset, I popped in to The Body Shop Outlet Store. I haven’t been to Street in about 9 or 10 years and while much has changed in the outlet village, The Body Shop remains a constant.


I popped in to stock up on some of my regular Body Shop items such as the Olive Shower Gel, which I’ve been using for over 10 years now, the multi-purpose Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera Gel.

This time I added the Drops of Youth Serum, as I wanted to try it out and see if it’s as good as the Drops of Light serum (which I have been using for the past 5 months and absolutely love! Review coming soon), and the Drops of Youth Night Mask.

The other new item for me is the Aloe Vera anti-perspirant. I’m trying to use fewer aerosols particularly as the spray deodorants are quite harsh on my skin and almost always cause irritation. I’ve been using the Aloe Vera roll-on for about a week now and no such sensitivity. I’ll give it a month or so to really see the effects and will review it properly then.

The big deal however is the price. RRP of these items comes to almost £70. I paid just over £41 and earned £4 points on my Body Shop card. Winning!
