The Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare

The Body shop has renamed and rebranded its best-selling Drops of Youth range to Edelweiss.

Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells from the Italian Alps – Powerful, natural anti-oxidant to help firm skin and prevent collagen loss.

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.

Apparently, the decision to change the name from Drops of Youth to Edelweiss is a bid to tackle the language of ageism in the beauty industry. This sadly, is very much a real thing, look how menopause is still a dirty word for middle-aged women losing their marbles instead of a natural process that causes a huge amount of women mental and physical stress.

As a young woman, I remember the argument that if men had periods there would be all sorts of procedures in place to make their lives easier. In fact, tax on period products was only abolished in 2021, yet retailers still haven’t passed on the 5% saving to consumers. Imagine if men went through menopause?

I applaud The Body Shop for their stance but on a personal level, if I’m looking for anti-ageing products, I’m going to type anti-ageing into the search bar.

Hopefully, things will change, the problem is you don’t think of getting older until it happens!

EDELWEISS Liquid Peel 100ml £20.00


Made with 95% ingredients of natural origin, it only takes a couple of pumps of our new Edelweiss Liquid Peel to gently exfoliate and leave skin looking smoother, more luminous and feeling fresher.

The gel-to-peel texture gently lifts impurities, pollutants and dead skin cells to leave you looking fresh-faced and glowy. Did we mention It’s suitable for sensitive skin too?


Smooth a couple of pumps onto dry skin 2-3 times a week.

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 afterward 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.
