The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate comes in a white roller ball packaging with a clear plastic lid. The tiny bottle has green sticker with details of the product printed on it. The cardboard packaging of the same colour scheme contains the claim, ingredients and other details about the product. The bottle comes with a tiny pump dispenser which also houses the roller (it’s a bit protruding from the neck of the bottle). So when you pump out the product, it stands around the edges of the roller ready to be applied directly to the skin.
I love this packaging! It is convenient, travel-friendly and totally hygienic. It feels so nice to apply this eye cream with the roller ball. The eye cream feels cool when directly applied from the roller ball. This helps in reducing the puffiness a bit for me especially in the morning. I like to take a few seconds to run the roller blade circling around both my eyes. Within a few seconds, the products warms up a little.
When I say warm up, I do not mean anything uncomfortable. But the difference in the temperature when it is directly applied and after it has been applied is considerable. It feels good and I think it helps the cream get absorbed well into the skin. I like to tap lightly with my ring finger to do this step.
I have been using this for so long and even though I love how it feels on the eyes, I have not seen any reduction in the appearance of fine lines on my under eye area. In winters, I used to apply my face serum over this (on under eye area) for extra moisture and it did help.
So even though, this one is geared towards people with slightly mature skin (drops of youth you see) but I think it will work great for everyone above the age of 20. It is not very heavy and feels nice on the skin. And the roll-on action just feels so good. It is so relaxing.
However, one of things I am not a huge fan of is that this eye cream contains silica, denatured alcohol etc. in its ingredients. I think the eye area is so delicate, these ingredients should be a no-no considering this is not exactly a budget item.

Overall, I think The Body Shop Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate is an eye cream which is soothing to the under eye area and can be used for massaging this area. It is moisturizing to the skin but is not too heavy so it can be used under makeup. The packaging is fantastic. This is not an affordable product but it does work well as an everyday eye cream. Since I have dry skin (under area area), I top it up with my face serum for added moisture. I think this will work for all skintypes and for everyone above 20! The only downside is that is contains alcohols and silica which may irritate sensitive eyes. It has worked well for me but I am not exactly rushing out to repurchase it!
