I am going to talk about a serum from The Body Shop.It is the Drops of Youth youth concentrate.It is a part of anti aging range of The Body Shop.I got this sample bottle in one of my MSM box.The Body Shop is my favourite brands of skincare products but the availability was an issue but they are now available on Nykaa.I love their hand creams and shower gels.This is my first ever serum from the brand .Lets see how it works.
Price :Rs 2995 for 30 ml

My thoughts about the product:
It comes in a green colored plastic bottle with a black dropper.The dropper makes it convenient to use and controls the amount of the product.I have the sample size so it is travel friendly.The serum is transparent and it absorbs quickly into the skin.I apply 2 or 3 drops and it spreads evenly.In the beginning it looks little sticky but the stickiness vanishes after couple of seconds.I use it at night after applying toner and before moisturiser.It is light weight and it is odourless.It is not too oily ,when it absorbs no greasiness can be seen on the skin.I was not expecting much hydration from this serum but it surprised me.I got soft,supple and glowing skin when I got up in the morning.It makes my DRY skin smooth.Now coming to the anti aging part.Firstly,I want to make it clear that I am in my late 20s and do not have significant ageing issues but it is a good idea to take anti aging product in late 20s.I do have some fine lines under my eyes I have used it for a month but it does not affect fine lines.It may affect fine lines if used for a longer time.
Overall,I am impressed with the quality and moisturisation which it gives to my skin.It is very important to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised to keep aging signs away.If used regularly this serum will definitely help to combat first signs of ageing and it claims the same too.If you are looking for a serum to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation you may not like this.Another con I think is that it is very expensive.
Thank you so much,
