Review: The Body Shop Roots of Strength Firming Shaping Serum

By 17:12 , ,

Definitely at an age now where some sort of firming product is a must in my routine. Loss of volume is real and that's where anti-ageing or products that help firm and lifts the skin comes in. I have tried quite a few firming products with varying degrees of efficacy. Some may not be as desirable as others, for example a suspended cheeks episode I had with this one product which changed the look of face, a story for another day. Perhaps my face wasn't ready yet for such an outcome. So currently what I look for is something that works, with natural results.

I've been trying out The Body Shop Roots of Strength Firming Shaping Serum over the past month and a half, and I like what I see. It's a new range targeted at reducing the appearance of wrinkles, plumping and firming. The outcome is meant to make your face contour appear as if 're-shaped'. This serum is infused with three root extracts, including ginger from Madagascar, ginseng from China and ruscus from Europe and Community Trade soy oil from Brazil.

I love the lightweight gel-like texture that not only absorbs easily but also gives extra hydration to the skin. Hydration is always important in any anti-ageing routine. It has subtle earthy scent which doesn't linger. I did actually start noticing promising results after two weeks. Six weeks on, my face is looking firm, a bit more plump when I first started and my laugh lines are less visible. The noticeability of my lines is usually how I gauge whether firming product is actually working, because they can get really obvious. With regards to the serum giving that 're-shaping' effect, I would say that it gives my face a natural lift, giving it that youthful look. Instead of a, "My face is looking kind of different" look, never what I go for. I only use one pump of this, spread it evenly and do a quick lifting massage. More of often than not I only use this serum as night only as I prefer minimal products during the day, but it is recommended to be used twice a day.

So if you are looking around for a firming product at an affordable price, I recommend you try this out, I'm loving the results. There is also a Firming Shaping Essence Lotion and Firming Shaping Day Cream from the Roots of Strength if you want to compliment the serum better. Best things about this serum - it's 100% vegan, 99% of ingredients are of natural origin, dermatologically tested and formulated without mineral oil, paraffin and silicone.

The Body Shop Roots of Strength Firming Shaping Serum is priced at RM168.87 (30ml) and is available at all stores and online.
