Everybody knows that skin is most problematic during the teenage years and we are always being told it's never too early to start looking after your skin, yet there are very few products out there aimed specifically at tweens and teens. That's where yoyo skincare comes in.
Launched in the Spring of 2014, yoyo is a new British skincare brand created specifically for young people. Made of high quality and natural ingredients, yoyo only uses the best in its products including fresh carrot and kiwi cells which are packed full of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that have many benefits for the skin. As it is a fairly new brand, there is currently only 3 products available online, this is the hand cream, day cream and bodywash. However, a cleanser, exfoliator and body lotion will be joining the yoyo family soon.
I have been using the yoyo bodywash for the past two weeks and it is definitely one of the best I have used for a while. This bodywash is packed full of wonderful ingredients including liquorice and aloe barbadensis leaf, both of which help to reduce redness and stinging on the skin. I found this particularly soothing as I had burnt myself whilst away in Greece, most bodywashes tend to irritate whereas this one actually cooled and reduced the redness of my burn. I also suffer from excema which can be easily irritated, again I had no troubles with this product so I would definitely recommend it to anybody who suffers with skin conditions or allergies.
The clear liquid is in a 200ml pump action bottle, I really liked the idea of the pump bottle as it allows you to easily dispense the bodywash into your hand, I always have trouble with squeeze bottles in the shower as they tend to slip out of my hands, however the pump is quite stiff for the first few uses and requires quite a few pumps of the liquid to be enough.
I love the smell of this bodywash, when I saw one of the main ingredients was liquorice I was quite worried it would be liquorice scented (I hate the smell of liquorice) but it actually has a very subtle, light citrus-y and clean smell to it, it's not overpowering and is a perfect unisex scent.
You can find this bodywash on the yoyo website for £14.50, this is quite a pricey product, however, it is of a very high quality and definitely worth it for how delicate it is on the skin and the wonderful scent.
