The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

Hi everyone! Honestly so excited to write this post, absolutely love buying things I've had my eyes on for ages and sharing my thoughts on them with you! I've basically been on a mission this year to improve my skin because it's so problematic, I don't suffer with acne or anything like that but it honestly is so dull and dry and tired looking that I was finally like "I need to do something about this" so I've been trying out a few different products and a few different skincare routines and I've finally found one that I love! I saw The Body Shop's Bouncy Sleeping Mask from their Drops Of Youth range in one of Zoella's favourites videos and instantly I really wanted it, it looked so fascinating however I was put off by the price. I was just unwilling to spend £24 on a face product (sounds daft when I was previously using a Kiehl's moisturiser) however on my birthday I got sent a £5 voucher for The Body Shop since I'm a member there so I finally caved this month, £19 is still a lot don't get me wrong but I wanted to use my voucher somehow plus I've been desperate to try this product for ages!


This is a mask designed to be left on overnight and it claims to have a youth-enhancing formula for bouncier looking skin, a unique bouncy memory shape texture and is enriched with Edelweiss stem cells. I'm not really that fussed about anti-aging products at the minute, I'm more concentrating on getting a nicer skin texture however I love the thought of my skin looking bouncy and youthful so the description had me sold! I was really reluctant to spend £24 on this however you really get value for money, there is 90ml of product but you only need to use the tiniest amount so I already know this will last me ages.



The texture is definitely one of the most interesting things about this, it is very thick in the pot and it kind of does have a memory foam like feel, if you press your finger onto it, rather than completely sinking in it just leaves a little dent and then it returns back to normal, you get a spatula with this to scoop product out so you don't have to try and shovel it out with your finger. Thankfully though it doesn't feel heavy or thick on the skin at all, I know it's for wearing during the night but I really hate feeling like I have a heavy mask on when I want to go to sleep.

I can honestly say that I have fallen in love with this! I thought I'd like it anyway because it was really cool but finally I have started to notice a difference in my skin after using this. When I apply it my skin feels so refreshed and cooled down instantly but the biggest thing is that when I wake up my skin really does look bouncier and more glowy, it sounds so ridiculous to say your skin looks bouncy but if you try it you'll get what I mean! I feel like finally makeup is starting to sit nicer on my skin, and it really does look more youthful. Another thing I love about this is that it smells so gorgeous! It's a scent I really can't describe, you'd have to just smell it to see so that's another bonus. I'm just so happy I've finally found a product where I can wake up in the morning and see a visible difference and I haven't even been using it that long. In terms of tackling my dry skin it definitely does help, my dry patches are basically non-existent now and my skin just feels so much more supple and refreshed. I can't really comment on how it would work on those with oily skin but if you are normal to dry then you would definitely love this. So glad I splurged and bought this because I'm so in love with it, it's definitely my favourite skin care product at the moment, let me know in the comments if you've tried this and what you think!

  8. I've tried a previous version but this one sounds much better! I feel like my base never goes on right at the moment. I wonder if you could get this with their 40% off or it might exclude this range :)

  12. I'm actually pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so whenever I see something I can just slap on before bed I'm like SIGN ME UP!!! I suffer from dry skin to and was pretty disappointed with the Origins overnight sleep mask (the name slips my mind right now but it comes in a green tube?). Will defffo be giving this a try next time I'm at The Body Shop!
