The Body Shop are champions against testing and I love that it is easy to walk in and pick anything up to try without having to check if the product is suitable for veggies and cruelty free.
For the last couple of months I have been using the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask on and off and feel it’s time to offer you a proper review.
It comes in this pretty simple but elegant box and they do a matching eye mask in the same kind of box if you wish to be super dedicated to your night routine. I have chosen to use this 2 or 3 times a week and love that the inside of the box offers advice on how to apply the mask and massage it into the skin for anyone feeling uncertain.
The mask itself has a jelly like consistency which might look a little strange first time you try it. Fear not though, it melts onto your skin as soon as you start to massage it in. I do find it leaves a tacky feeling on my skin until it has been given plenty of time to dry.
Ingredient wise it contains Organic Babassu Oil which is rich in vitamin E, fatty acids and antioxidants, making it great as an anti-aging ingredient. It also has Edelweiss again high in antioxidants to reverse the signs of aging.
So the big question is, does it really work? Well, I will say that on the mornings after I have used it my skin DOES look smoother and more plump. Is this a short term illusion or is it preventing aging long term? Who knows. Downside is I do get the odd break out if I use it too often. I actually acquired 2 extra jars of the mask because 2 co-workers had the same problem with break outs (great for me but not so much for them as it costs £25 a pot).
The Body Shop do offer samples so if you are unsure if you want to commit to this product, call in and get a small amount to try and if you find you enjoy the effects as much as I do, I am sure you will be running back to give them your money.
