The Body Shop started in Brighton, England in 1976 by founder, Anita Roddick. It was one of the first to offer “natural” products. The Drops of Youth range is made with three plant stem cells: Edelweiss, Sea Holly and Crest Marine.
“The Drops of Youth™ Youth Liquid Peel exfoliates and gently peels off impurities from your skin, lifting dead skin cells and residuals. Infused with a blend of three plant stem cells, this revolutionary gel-to-peel leaves skin clean and purified from the day’s pollutants. Continued use will leave a fresh, smoother and more luminous youthful-looking skin.” – The Body Shop Website.

HILARY SAYS REVIEW:
Firstly, plant stem cells do not work on human skin, unless your skin is trying to grow some stems/leaves/fruit; and they have to be living to even do that. All they will do is work as antioxidants at best.
Secondly, there are no ingredients in this product that will exfoliate your skin. It is packed with surfactants/emulsifiers so all you will get from it is a pretty good cleanse. The product dries up and clumps into sticky balls but I don’t know how effective that will be at exfoliating.
There are definitely other exfoliating products that will do a much better job. I’m actually quite disappointed at the entire Body Shop Drops of Youth Range. I will not recommend it.
