The product

When you hear the word edelweiss, you’re probably inclined to start humming the entire The Sound of Music soundtrack. But as it turns out, edelweiss isn’t just a banger of a musical theatre song, it’s also the key ingredient in The Body Shop’s skin-smoothing serum and face cream. 

The Body Shop Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate and The Body Shop Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Cream harness the powers of edelweiss to smooth and strengthen the skin in equal measure. The result? Smoothed texture, a refined complexion, minimised pore size and hydrated skin. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this natural serum and face cream duo. 

The panel

Beauty Crew sent The Body Shop Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate and The Body Shop Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Cream to a panel of women aged 18 to 34 with a range of skin types, including sensitive skin. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about The Body Shop Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate and The Body Shop Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Cream.

The way they smoothed skin texture: Reviewers were very complimentary on the serum and cream’s skin smoothing abilities, with a number noting that they saw an improvement in their overall skin texture, tone, and the size of their pores. 

How hydrating they were: Review Crew® members also kept mentioning that their skin felt extremely hydrated after using the serum and cream. Bonus: the hydrating formula didn’t leave their skin feeling oily. 

The lightweight, fast-absorbing formula: According to reviewers, both the serum and the cream are lightweight and absorb quickly into the skin. 

The verdict

“From the moment I got my hands on [The Body Shop Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrates] little green bottle I was excited to use it. A light, non-sticky and fast absorbing formula, with a light scent, it was easy to apply and just 3 drops went a long way, from my face to my décolletage. I felt over time this cocktail of ingredients did an amazing job of increasing the hydration on my face, neck and décolletage. It left my skin feeling soft, supple and most importantly, hydrated. I will continue to use this and will be purchasing time and time again.”

“I loved using [The Body Shop Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate] - I originally planned to mostly use it at night, but I found a thin layer before starting my make-up routine helped my daily make-up to stay even longer! After cleansing, I applied just a few drops of the serum, and spread it out with my fingertips. It spreads beautifully, has a slightly tacky texture initially but is fantastic once it sinks in. I paired it with the smoothing cream in the same range. After using these products my skin is firmer, smoother, and brighter. It's made a genuine difference in the look and texture of my skin. I love the subtle scent and how effective it was at improving my skin.”

“[The Body Shop Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Cream] has the most beautiful texture, it is so light on the skin, soaking in so well and leaving the skin smooth, soft and hydrated. I have quite dry and sensitive skin, and this has been a life saver, especially with the change of season. I wake up with hydrated, glowy skin in the morning after using this at night. I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out and would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking for a new hydrating moisturiser!”

“[The Body Shop Edelweiss Intense Smoothing Cream] is non-greasy and I love the silky texture and feel of it on my skin. My skin appears smoother, clearer and hydrated. I can definitely see a difference in my skin after using the product because it’s plumper and glowing from the effects of the product retaining my skin’s natural moisture. I like the smell of the product too and it’s perfect for my sensitive skin. The recyclable packaging is an added benefit too.”
