{Beauty Box} Review: The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

In today's hectic, stressful life, a good night's sleep is very important to keep us going.
Till last year, the night-owl in me used to be up till the wee hours of the morning coz my creative juices seemed to flow more freely during those unearthly hours! But, along with many other changes in my life post-marriage, my sleep patterns have changed too; and since now I can't afford the luxury of waking up straight to brunch, I am compelled to go to sleep considerably early. 
But all these years of nocturnal adventures had left me with quite a few unwanted gifts including dark circles, dull skin and indigestion. 

So, understandably, even though I know how much some of you love those silent hours in front of the laptop, accompanied only by a mug of coffee, some sinful (and totally guilt-inducing) midnight snacks and the occasional distant call of a night bird; I would strongly advise at least 6-8 hours of sound sleep at night for the body to function properly throughout the busy day-time schedule.

And what's more! The Body Shop has just launched its new Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask to help rejuvenate your skin while you rejuvenate the body & soul!

A new addition to their best-selling youth-enhancing range, the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is designed to be left overnight as it moulds itself like a second skin, giving you fresher & bouncier skin in the morning!

When I was sent the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask for review, I did some market survey on the product and asked The Body Shop sales staff about the response to this new kid on the beauty block. They said that so far the response have been pretty good, so much so that the product was completely sold out from the store!

The jar containing the 90ml cream is quite sturdy & heavy and the green packaging itself signifies the refreshing power of the product inside. The cute little spatula that comes with it helps in taking out the cream while applying so that the formula doesn't get spoilt due to the regular contact with our (at a microscopic level, unclean) hands.

Here's a swatch of the cream. The consistency is soft and a bit runny, but the cream gets absorbed quite quickly once you massage it into the skin. 

I have been using this cream for a few nights now and I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the skin does feel refreshed in the morning! I'm sure regular use of this youth-enhancing formula will just do wonders to my almost-thirty skin cells!!!

All ready to let the Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask work its magic on my skin!

I'm also sharing this helpful video where Dr. Terry Loong, Global Skincare Expert from The Body Shop shows us the correct technique of applying the cream.
Watch. Follow. Sleep.

Just apply properly at the end of your nightly beauty regime, pull on the eye mask and drift into a much-needed 'beauty sleep'!!! :)
