Last year, The Body Shop added new products to their best-selling Drops of Youth™ line.
The Drops of Youth™ range centres around four core ingredients:
- Sea Holly Plant Stem Cells from the Brittany Coast – Regenerates and revitalises skin structures, supports elastin and collagen cells.
- Criste Marine Plant Stem Cells – Improves skin elasticity and radiance. Speeds up skin cell renewal.
- Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells from the Italian Alps – Powerful, natural anti-oxidant to help firm skin and prevent collagen loss.
- Moringa Seed Oil – Moisturing high omega content, free-radical fighting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you cross-check these key ingredients you’ll find they’re also used by the big luxury skincare brands ie sea holly and edelweiss plant stem cells can be found in Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Definition Face & Neck Serum. Criste marine features in La Mer and Dior’s Youth Capture line.
Drops of Youth™ LIQUID PEEL 100ml £16.00
Smooth on our Liquid Peel and watch it transform from gel to peel. Rinse to lift away impurities, dead skin cells and pollutants, leaving skin looking clean and feeling fresh.
This is a must-have not only for the face, but to remove all traces of fake tan. Don’t be put off by the words liquid peel, it’s not a peel-off mask as I first thought, (I’m never going there again). It’s a thin, opaque gel that’s applied to dry skin, massaged in and rinsed off.
It’s a little gunky to use, so I massage it in then rinse it off in the shower. It pills and turns into gross little balls of dirt and dead skin.
At first, you think maybe it’s just the product itself clumping up but if you ‘repeat’ an area, then you won’t get those bits the second time around.
If you’re lifting off something like fake tan, the balls change colour and turn orange. It’s a bit ‘ewww’ but then skin afterwards is silky smooth and brighter looking.
I also find it really effective to lift every bit of makeup from your face, even if you’ve double cleansed and think you’ve cleaned every trace of foundation.
It’s very gentle and ideal as a ‘starter peel’ for sensitive skin. You don’t need much product either, just a thin layer.
Drops of Youth™ CONCENTRATE 30ml £28.00, 50ml £36.00
The gel-like texture sinks in quickly to leave your skin feeling fresher and replenished with moisture.
A total bonus for busy lives, we’ve also boosted it with protection from indoor and outdoor pollution. It forms a protective layer on skin to help it feel strengthened and suppler.
This is the best seller (one sold every 23 seconds around the globe) that started off the line and quickly became a cult favourite.
Reviews talk of fading acne scars, blurring out existing spots and softening the creases between eyebrows.

A gel-cream formula that acts like a second skin for ultimate moisture.

I love the term sleeping mask (it’s everywhere), but really this is an ultra moisturising night cream. Best to apply it a good hour before you go to sleep to let it sink in.
