The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask Review & Ingredients Analysis

I wanted to get hold of The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask when it was
first launched. But it was out of stock always and I assumed it was a Limited Edition.  When The Body Shop updated their packaging, I was glad I could find it.

Ever since cutting down dairy from my diet, my skin turned anhydrous and extremely dry.
Almond oil failed to provide nourishment to my dry skin. I needed a turnabout and this was it.
I started using it from the day I bought it and I made sure of noting down my usage and surveillance of first Five days.

I applied this using distinctive techniques. Because I was puzzled.

Night One: Used the Bouncy Sleeping Mask as a Night Cream. Massaged a dollop onto my face and neck till it was turned viscous to touch.

Night Two
: I practiced the same method above with Two dollops of this Sleeping Mask.

Night Three
: I practiced the same method above with Three dollops. And then layered a generous amount. (The layering was inclusive of the Three dollops)

Night Four
: Skipped because I was too tired to follow my night time routine.

Night Five: Used just One dollop of this Mask for both massaging and layering.

The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask Review India

My Five Day Experience:

I was anticipating quick results and glowing skin the very next morning. On the morning after my first usage, my skin was the same: Dry and dehydrated. When I used it on the second night, certain areas like my nose, eyebrows and sides of my nose were tingling, a bit much. And the tingling continued for rest of the night, all nights. The morning after my third night, my skin was plump, hydrated and my complexion clarified with a lasting dewiness on my nose. My paper-thin sensitive skin did not break out at all. I did not sleep a bit the third night but my skin still looked well slept but my eyes were drowsy with the lack of sleep. I skipped the fourth night because my sleep cycle was disturbed.

How I continued using the product:

I pretty much use the same amount: One dollop and massage half of it onto my skin and then layer the rest on the dry-dehydrated areas
I am using it since mid-June and I skipped the third week since I was a bit occupied. So after using this for Two weeks straight. My skin wasn't as dry as it was during the skipped period and I resumed my routine again on 1st July. I followed the same technique mentioned above.
This does not stain my pillow since I let it absorb but I make sure I change them every alternate day.
There is one bizarre thing I did from day one, I hydrate myself with a glass full of water before and after applying this.
Considering the Humidity level is 89% these days, I have stopped using this. I did wake up with congested nose and cheeks the other day. I have switched to Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Miracle Serum and it has been a week. I would resume again in Cold months or whenever my skin feels dehydrated. I don't think this would complement Acne-prone Oily skin.

Recommendation: This is life or death. I can skip moisturizing throughout the day and still expect my skin to be hydrated. I don't mind the gluey feeling or don't find it messy either for the results. I tend to skip sleep and some days I do have disrupt schedules and this had been showing its signs on my skin. To put in in one line: I can cheat my sleep with The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask & Caffeine!
I do recommend if your abrupt lifestyle affects your skin ;-)

Repurchase: YES though I would love to try a few other sleeping masks.
