This five-star Body Shop serum now boasts a brand new reinforced formula

This wonder product is already a fan favourite...

body shop drops youth concentrate reinforced formula

The Body Shop has long been a high-street favourite for those looking for more planet-conscious products.

And the brand has won over the hearts of skincare lovers with its iconic Drops of Youth concentrate.

The 99 per cent natural serum has become so popular for its protecting and nourishing properties that it now sells one bottle every 27 seconds.

With its powerful blend of plant stem cells, the gel-like concentrate protects the skin from becoming dry, dull and tired from environmental aggressors like traffic pollution, public transport and central heating.

And the serum’s benefits have now been amped with the addition of a new ingredient to the formula.

The bestselling concentrate has been reinforced with the addition of moringa seed oil.

The naturally-derived oil is known to be a strong source of antioxidants, meaning you’ll be getting an extra layer of environmental protection, as well as a shot of moisture to leave your skin healthy, fresh and glowing.

And fans can vouch for the already ‘magic’ benefits of the serum.

Nourishment in a bottle!’ raved one. ‘What a nifty little invention!

The consistency is more like that of a gel than an oil so a little most definitely goes a long way! It dries in really quickly and doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky at all.

‘It leaves the texture of the skin so smooth & nourished and makes such a lovely foundation for make up. My skin hasn't felt this good in quite a while!!’.

‘Amazing,’ added another, ‘like magic!

‘I bought this product five days and I have be blown away by the results already. Instantly your skin feels fresh, tight and smooth.

You don't need a lot per application, but it sits nicely under your daily moisturiser.

‘My skin looks much smoother and tighter after only five days’.

‘The Name Says It All: Drops of Youth,’ commented another fan.

‘I wanted to wait the full 4 weeks of dedicated use before I reviewed.

‘However, I saw great results after one week (my skin peeled as expected), second week I noticed a softer, smoother feel, and now on my third week... I notice a softer and smoother look and so does everyone else! I have been getting so many compliments on my skin.

About our deals

I use one drop and smooth it all over my face (even right under my eyes; no irritation). I do it right after my shower in the morning (before The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost) and at night after I wash my face.

‘This has worked wonders for my skin; combination (seriously either really oily or super dry) I find this product helps make my skin 'normal' again’.

Sounds like this bestseller is one worth investing in!

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
