Eyes are the windows to the soul. It’s a timeless saying that holds more than an element of truth. Eyes reveal the story of your life and highlight the beautifully unique aspects that make you who you are. An instant indicator of your true self, your eyes express an expansive range of emotions from happiness and joy to sadness and distraction – all in a single glance.
THE BODY SHOP OFFERS A FEAST FOR YOUR EYES
Here at The Body Shop we are proud to be purveyors of feel-good products for the face, body, and soul. We are constantly working away to deliver the best products with the best benefits. Some areas (such as our eyes) require extra special care and targeted ingredients that deliver the ultimate in protection, alongside gentle make-up that is capable of creating a stunning look without damaging the fragile skin around the eyes.
KEEP IT SIMPLE: OUR TOP EYECARE PICKS
We know how confusing it can be trying to find the perfect products for your needs, so we’ve narrowed it down to our three favourites. Here is our guide to looking after that sensitive eye area and bringing back the sparkle in your eyes!
ALWAYS REDUCE PUFFINESS
One of our most popular products for men and women, the Elderflower Unperfumed Eye Gel is an elderflower-enriched gel that cools the skin to specifically target tired and puffy eyes. It’s a simple, unscented favourite that is a perfect partner for all skin types – even sensitive!
SMOOTH AND REVITALISE
Too often the precious eye area is the first to show signs of ageing and deserves a bit more care. To help counteract this, The Body Shop developed NEW Oils of Life TM Intensely Revitalising Eye Cream-Gel, a deeply nourishing yet incredibly lightweight formula that gives new life to your eyes. By infusing three precious seed oils known for their revitalising and repairing properties into an ultra-light and airy smoothing texture, we created the perfect solution to revitalise the eye contour and visibly reduce signs of ageing. So comfortable that it can be used daily as a cream and weekly as a mask!
ROLL TO BRIGHTEN AND REFRESH
Uncover the secret to younger-looking eyes with Drops of YouthTM Eye Concentrate. This magical formula featuring Edelweiss plant stem cells helps to refresh the eye contour area and minimise the appearance of fine lines, bags, and look of fatigue.*

EYES TO KILL FOR: MAKE THEM UP
Now you’ve taken good care of your eye area, it’s time to show off all your hard work! At The Body Shop, we pride ourselves on developing cruelty-free make-up that enhances your natural beauty. Here’s our guide to creating the perfect eye look!
STEP 1 – PRIME-TIME
The best start to any eye look: our first eye blur that instantly perfects the appearance of the eye area. . Instablur™ eye can be used alone to smooth and conceal imperfections and create a natural look, or under eyeshadow as a primer to enhance and prolong wear.
STEP 2 – MAKE THEM POP
Our NEW Eye Colour Sticks are the perfect partner to provide depth to any eye look. These multi-functional sticks are incredibly easy to use, and are highly pigmented to create a striking look. The brighter sticks can be used in the inner corner or centre of the eyelid to create a “spotlight” effect; whilst the darker shades can be smudged inwards from the outer corner or upper crease of the lid to create a super easy smoky-eyed look.
STEP 3 – ADD DRAMA
Our Down To Earth eye shadow palette and quads contain naturally beautiful blendable shades that will not crease or crumble. Just 100% vegan make-up, with no added parabens, no mineral oil, no petrolatum and no carmine - they’re even suitable for sensitive eyes!
STEP 4 – HOLD THE LINE
Eyeliner is a perfect way to make your eyes stand out. Make sure all eyes are on you with our black matte kajal liner. Perfect for creating a smoky eye look, a smart, easy-grip pack ensures mistake-free application every time. This super flexible liner is suitable for lining above and below the eyes, as well as on the water line – so you can personalise your liner to suit your individual eye shape and style.
STEP 5 – LASH IT OUT
Complete your look with fluttering lashes! Our classic Super Volume Mascara gives lashings of volume, intense colour and coats without clumping. The sensitive formula is suitable for contact-lens wearers, and is capable of generating the appearance of voluminous lashes without irritating sensitive eyes.
STEP 6 – GET WOW-BROWS
No look is complete without perfectly symmetrical brows! OK, perfectly symmetrical might be a bit unrealistic… but our Brow and Liner kit contains everything you need to create close-to-perfect brows. The double ended brush provides extra precision to line and fill your brows, and each kit contains two blendable shades to ensure the closest possible match to your preferred colour.
EASY ON THE EYES: GENTLE REMOVAL
Your precious eye area deserves an extra dose of special care. Our Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover gently melts away make-up within seconds, while also conditioning the skin. It’s suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers.
