These days when our climate is changing, we face horrible changes in the weather. Sometimes too much of heat and sometimes unbearably chilly winters, apart from that, we also face a lot of pollution, dirt, and dust in our atmosphere on going out, our skin loses its flexibility, firmness, and moisture. We need something extra to keep our skin firm and supple for a long time. The Body Shop has come with a solution to this problem with their new launched product the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask by The Body Shop.
This is one of their best-selling youth enhancing skin care range. Usually, I don’t use sleeping masks because I’m a bit lazy when it comes to these things but after using Drop Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask from The Body Shop, I can say that it’s not as difficult as I used to think. So, I’m here with this mask after my own experience with it, let’s start!
Firstly, you should know what is it, & is recommend to be use during night only. Sleeping mask is just like any other night moisturiser or cream but they have “mask like” treatment while you are sleeping. Leave it overnight and you can see much difference when you wake-up! Also works great if you are traveling..

In the mirror of my own experience
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask comes in a green box packaging, inside the box, the mask comes in a glass jar with a white lid. The packaging is beautiful sleek and luxurious, but it’s so bulky and heavy. It’s not travel-friendly. There is not any extra protecting cap provided with the jar, opening the cap directly leads to the open mouth of the jar. The other thing is that the jar is made of glass so you need to handle it with care.
Smell, shade & Texture
The mask is in off white color. . I love the fresh green scent and also the cooling sensation. The texture of The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is a bit sticky like thick yogurt and gel. It’s not too heavy or creamy.
Application & Effect
To apply, you are provided enclosed a spatula to scoop a spatula-end sized amount out. I put it on to the palms of my hands, I wait it to melt before massaging it into my face just like my night cream. it is cooling and relaxing on the skin and feels absolutely pleasant. Once on the skin it doesn’t absorb immediately, at the first time, it finded it quite tricky sleeping with a wet feeling because the mask makes a thin film on the skin and doesn’t absorb into it. I felt a bit sticky whenever I touched my face accidentally while sleeping. After my first experience, I learned that I should apply this mask almost half an hour before going to bed to sleep. During this period, the mask becomes almost disappeared and absorbs into the skin.
I apply it all over my face including my neck after my night skin care routine ( I skip my night cream when I apply it) and go to bed.It is really relaxing. One of the main ingredients is the Edelweiss stem cells for skin rejuvenating.
Coming on the effect, the next morning when I washed my face I was really amazed to see how supple and silky my skin was! My skin was looking shiny (not oily) I think you can understand the meaning of mine. I never felt so healthy looking skin in the morning before. I was truly happy to see its effect on my skin because if you see your skin so hydrated and healthy looking in the morning, your whole goes well, Don’t you think so?
I have used The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping mask just 2-3 times. I only use this when I feel my skin is quite dull and tired, after a very busy schedule of the day and trust me, I feel very relaxed and while sleeping I’m assured that my skin will be prepared well for starting a new day.
The secret behind this mask is Edelweiss plant stem cells. Edelweiss is said to thrive in the harshest of conditions high in the Alps. The Edelweiss stem cells are then carefully extracted to deliver potent skin-cell renewing properties, which helps the skin feel plumper and smoother in the morning.

Sleeping with a wet sleeping mask is not easy sometimes
Finally, I’m very happy with The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping mask. It’s really a nice product especially for these days when life is running very fast in metropolitans and women have no time to take care their skin due to their very busy lifestyle. I recommend this sleeping mask to you if you are looking for an everyday firming sleeping mask that hydrates really well. I’m really impressed with the quality of this sleeping mask. My only complaint with it is its high price, It’s really costly. How can I recommend it to all my readers when I know it cannot be afforded by everyone. Anyways, It’s a wonderful sleeping mask and I wish the price was on the lower side.
Also Dr. Terry, a skincare expert appointed by The Body Shop Global has specially designed a massage technique you can use when using this Sleeping Mask. It helps to stimulate your lymphatic system that encourages better absorption.
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is now available at all The Body Shop counters and stores.
