No matter what I do every year as soon as the weather gets cold my skin really starts to suffer. A combination of oils and hydrating face masks usually helps and this year I've been testing out the new Body Shop drops of youth bouncy sleeping mask:
There were 2 things which drew me into this face mask. One being that it's a night time treatment so I don't have to invest any extra time into my skincare routine and the other being the unique bouncy texture that it has. It reminds me somewhat of Illamasqua hydra veil in that its jelly like and after use always magically smoothes itself out. It comes with a little spatula which I'd definitely recommend using. Normally I wouldn't bother but without a spatula it's near impossible to scoop up, not to mention that the fact that it's such a big jar that I'd be worried about contamination if I used my fingers.
So what does The Body Shop drops of youth bouncy sleeping mask feel like on the skin? The jelly texture melts down on contact with body heat and becomes a light gel creme texture which spreads easily on the skin. It's a little sticky to touch initially but soon sinks into the skin and doesn't leave behind any marks or residues on my pillow.
I've been using this in place of a night cream and generally it does a good job of keeping my skin nicely hydrated and plump. I need to use an extra face oil for any particularly dry patches but overall I think this is a good face mask/night cream if have normal to combination skin. Drier skins may need something more but as the summer months approaches I can this being really popular thanks to the light quick absorbing texture.
