In Detail The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Eye Concentrate Review
TBS Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate was launched recently in India. Thanks to mom I got my hands on this a few days before it was actually launched in India. I have been using this for almost a month now and I thought this should be the best time to share my thoughts on it. It was so much hyped everywhere around that I already was expecting this to have miraculous effects.
TBS has absolutely nailed the packaging on this one. A beautiful sleek tube with craftily designed applicator. The concept is, we put our thumb in the little indented space right below the rounded top and give a slight press. This makes the product come out and spread evenly on the metal ball on the top. According to the instructions, I roll the nice little metal ball in figure of 8 motions around my eyes and then gently pat. It feels really nice and gives a cooling sensation because of the metal ball. In fact I sometimes keep it in the fridge for 5 to 10 minutes and it feels super amazing on my eyes. The metal rollerball helps reduce the morning puffiness due to fluid retention and saves me from displaying my tired eyes when I am in a hurry during morning.
The product is fragrance free and has a very thin serum like light consistency. The concentrate absorbs very nicely and pretty quickly. It makes the skin feel very smooth and sort of gives a taut sensation around my eyes. But this effect is not like permanent. It is a temporary effect and that “taut” feeling actually lasts for may be 3-4 hours normally.
Now, if you do go through the product description in detail, they have mentioned the use of plant stem cells. Some of you are wondering what are stem cells? Stem Cells are actually totipotent cells which every living thing has. These are the cells from which new cells arise. Consider them as parent cells. So basically what I do not understand is, in what way are plant stem cells supposed to work for human cells? Plant stem cells are made to make more plant cells. These are completely different from Human cells on the basic genetic level. All I can support is, they are rich is lots and lots of antioxidants and can help reduce the signs of ageing on human skin.
The product also has some aluminium powder. Aluminium powder is a cosmetic agent which provides a brightening effect on the skin and can help make the under eye darkness less apparent. When you actually look at the product very closely with naked eyes, you will be able to appreciate the tiniest shimmer particles which are because of the aluminium powder.
Because I do not suffer from problems of under eye bags, I cannot comment upon that. I would love to know if someone has an opinion about it, please leave a comment below and share with us.
Overall I am very happy with this product. It does takes away the morning puffiness like a dream. Reduces fine lines and makes the skin more taut. Gives a brightening effect around the eyes. Makes the skin very smooth to touch. However, not so sure about the long term benefits.
