Over the past few years I have tried so many different night creams. I find they are always too thick and I could never get the quantity right for my face.
One day while in browsing in The Body Shop, I asked one of the girls about a face mask. She asked if I used night cream and I told her how I didn’t like the texture and how heavy they sat on my skin. I was given a sample of this Sleeping Mask and within 5 days I was back to the store to buy the Full Size Product.
Firstly, here is the science bit.
The Body Shop ‘Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask’ is enriched with Edelweiss Stem Cells – this herbaceous plant is native to the mountains of Europe. In the outermost layers (epidermis) of healthy skin stem cells constantly work away to renew the skin, helping with processes such as wound healing and giving you a whole new epidermis every month! As we age, these regenerating processes slow down and can lead to the loss of the skin’s firmness, causing wrinkles to occur. So for cosmetic reason, botanical-derived (plant) stem cells and their extracts are now more popular in products. Leave on overnight to leave the skin looking bouncy and feeling replenished.
Well with all this in mind I purchased the mask. The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is packaged in a glass container. It contains a spatula which saves you from placing your hands into the mask. Very hygienic from The Body Shop.
When you first open the lid of the jar you will instantly notice the calmness of the mask. On inserting the spatula you will see that the texture is like jelly. 1 scoop of the spatula is all that is required. I place the mask on to the back of my hand and then apply it to my face. I use this mask after I have applied my Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil.
CAUTION: You need to apply this mask about 15 minutes before you go to bed. A few times at the beginning I forgot and lay straight down and well it just felt sticky and heavy. Apply it, wait until it dries in and then go to sleep . Previously I stopped using night creams as they were too heavy and clogged my pores. This Mask however leaves my skin feeling silky smooth.
In the morning after you wash it off, continue as normal with your morning skin care routine, you will be amazed at how refreshed your skin looks.
Since using The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask, I have been asked so many times if I had a facial in the past few days.
If like me you don’t like the texture of night creams then this is the night time product you have been waiting for.
It costs €33.00 but….. This picture alone tells you the value for money.
