This super-hydrating sleeping mask is a memory foam pillow for your face

The Body Shop 'Drops of Youth' Bouncy Sleeping Mask is the best friend that you will not be able to ‘sleep’ without

In search of that one holy grail product to shake up your routine in time to combat the cranked up indoor heat and harsh wintry weather conditions? Well, we might have just the thing.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you might be aware that sleeping masks are really having a moment right now. With Lancôme, Kiehl's, Charlotte Tilbury all buying into the latest trend in skincare, it can be quite the task in distinguishing if sleep masks are a ‘must buy’ or just another skincare fad that will soon become a thing of the past.

I recently had a reunion with The Body Shop’s Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask when my skin was looking a little dull, lacklustre and in overall bad nick. At first application, I wondered why I ever stopped using this gem. Think of it as a memory foam mattress, but for your face. The Bouncy Sleeping Mask results are immediate. True to its word, it will leave your skin feeling plump, hydrated, and with a visible healthy glow that’s full of restoration.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask €33

What is it?

Think of it as your all singing and dancing super hydrating best friend in the form of 90mls of cold, white jelly texture, topped with a white floral-esque scent.

Who is it for?

This little jar of heaven is for all skin types but does measurable wonders for those of us with parched, dehydrated or dry skin. Which let’s face it, could be the majority of us it as 'tis the season, after all!

How do I use it?

Apply a thin layer after your serum phase of your nighttime regimen. It appears like a wet film at first, but will absorb within minutes. I would recommend allowing the product to soak in for about 10-15 minutes before hitting the hay, ensuring that your skin reaps the benefits and not your pillow case.

Giving ‘beauty sleep’ a whole new meaning, the magic ingredient for this star buy is simply ‘sleep’. You will wake up with your skin feeling bouncy, fresh and visibly brightened. After recommending to a few friends, they have all reached the unanimous conclusion of a massive thumbs up.

How much is it?

The retail price is €33 at The Body Shop stores nationwide. It would also make a good introduction for those who are particularly new to the sleeping mask phenomena and would like to give it a go with a price tag that won’t have you compromising this month’s light and heat bill. Bring on the cold!
