The Body Shop is a brand that always excels with fabulous gift sets, and this Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare set is no exception. Consisting of The Body Shop’s Edelweiss Serum, Edelweiss Day Cream and a lovely ceramic roller for application, the brand still continues to support its fair trade partners with the production of these items too.
Containing their new skincare superhero, a unique antioxidant from the Edelweiss flower, I was consequently very excited when asked to try them. Since then, I have been testing the products contained in this gift set in a collaboration with The Body Shop, so read on to see my full review of The Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare Set.

There is something luxurious about this vegan, cruelty-free Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare Set. It is well presented, makes a lovely gift, and the products in it feel really fresh and invigorating when you apply them to your skin.

The Edelweiss Serum is light and refreshing
I have a bit of a soft spot for this serum. It’s absorbed quickly, doesn’t feel sticky, and has a lovely, cooling feel on application. After a few days of using it, my skin felt smoother and more hydrated than before. You also need only use a few drops of it, so it goes a long way too.
The Edelweiss Day Cream penetrates quickly
I find that some moisturisers feel like they are clogging up your pores and creating an impenetrable barrier between your face and the world! This day cream couldn’t be more different. With a pleasing, gentle fragrance, The Body Shop Edelweiss Day Cream is a light moisturiser that penetrates quickly, and leaves a great base for make-up too if you wear it.
Suitable for sensitive skin
My skin is very sensitive and can react very badly to new products. However, I have had no adverse reaction to these Body Shop Edelweiss products. They seem really calming and gentle and I have enjoyed using them.
Long ingredients list
There are a lot of ingredients in these Body Shop Edelweiss products. That’s not to say that is necessarily bad, although I don’t think they can all be classified as ‘natural’.
However, there are some good ingredients, including leontopodic acid, the unique and powerful antioxidant extracted from the Edelweiss flower.
The Body Shop does also provide a complete breakdown of the ingredients contained in all their products, and explains why they are there which is helpful. At least you have clearer information which can help you to decide whether or not you want to smother it all over your face!
Vegan Mum's conclusion on The Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare Set
I haven’t tried the whole range of The Body Shop Edelweiss skincare products, but I can honestly say that I have loved the two that I have used:
Edelweiss Daily Serum Concentrate
This non-sticky, light serum is a definite favourite with me. It really does have a fresh feeling when I apply it and it spreads and penetrates really easily, leaving my skin feeling smooth. You only need a few drops dotted around your face, and the glass dropper bottle with its pipette style lid means that you can measure out the right amount and not end up scraping unused serum back into the bottle! It works really well.
Edelweiss Smoothing Day Cream
I love this day cream because it is so light, absorbs really well and has a lovely, gentle fragrance. It contains hyaluronic acid and leontopodic acid from the Edelweiss flower – an extract that has 43% more antioxidant power than that old favourite, Retinol which seems pretty amazing. However, I’m not really thinking about that when I apply it to be honest, I’m just pleased with the results!
Overall, my skin has felt more hydrated, and I have not had any breakouts or reactions to the products which is great.
In addition, the packaging is glass. Whilst I appreciate the weight of transportation for glass is higher, it just feels better than using yet more plastic to me.
There are lots of good vegan, cruelty-free skincare products on the market and The Body Shop Edelweiss Skincare Set is definitely up there with the best in my opinion.
