The oddest face mask I've ever used: The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

The Body Shop Bouncy Sleeping Mask Review

I love a good face mask, let's just get this out there. I always have a few on rotation that swoop in when things get tough and work their little magic. I certainly didn't need another but as my skin is forever dry and I do love a bit of The Body Shop I ended up picking up The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncing Sleeping Mask (£22) recently.

First things first, this is such an odd mask! It's a bit like a bouncy jelly and really hard to actually get out of the tub at first, even with the little spatula that I'm bound to lose. Once you've (finally) managed to scoop a bit out it settles back down completely flat, just like magic. Very similar to Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer if you've tried that. The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncing Sleeping Mask is definitely a marmite product I'd say. Not everyone gets on with overnight face masks so if you've never liked them in the past then I doubt you'll like this one sadly.

Once you've got past getting it out of the tub and onto your face, it's a dream to massage in and even has it's own little massage technique which is pretty neat. You can apply it either after cleansing on it's own or after your full evening routine and then you're good to go. It does feel a little tacky on the skin so give it a while before you go to bed as it will transfer onto your pillow case and hair if you're not careful! Come morning my skin was definitely more nourished and happy, and after using this once a week for the last three weeks I haven't broken out at all which is always a positive! It definitely provides an intense level of hydration that exceeds your average night cream and my skin is super soft and brighter in the morning. The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncing Sleeping Mask is extremely similar to the Origins Drink Up Intensive mask so if you're a fan of that like I am then you'll get on with this just fine.

It's not the cheapest product from TBS at £22, but it definitely delivers and the tub is mahoosive so I think it would last absolutely months which is pretty good value for money.

Have you tried this yet or are you tempted? Also I was thinking of doing a series of posts on my different pamper evening routines (there are many!), would this be of interest to you guys? Let me know in the comments.
