The Body Shop Drops Of Youth Youth Concentrate Sheet Mask Review

The Body Shop brought out their first sheet mask Drops Of Youth, at the beginning of the year and since then they have released three more Aloe, Vitamin E and Seaweed. I have tried the Aloe and Vitamin E ones, which you can find reviews on here.

The Drops Of Youth Youth Concentrate Sheet Mask is suitable for sensitive skin. It contains 3 plant stem cells, Edelweiss from the Italian Alps, Sea Holly and Criste Marine from the Brittany Coast. The Body Shop says “the stem cells are one of the strongest regenerating powers in nature”. They have selected 3 plants that renowned for their protective, renewing and restructuring properties. The stem cells are infused in the Drops Of Youth concentrate. It contains 70% of the concentrate in a 30ml bottle of Drops Of Youth Concentrate. Also it is enriched in Community Trade Babassu oil from Brazil

The mask will give your skin instant hydration, leaving the skin feeling fresher, smoother, looking bouncier, healthier and more youthful. They say “after 4 weeks of using the youth-enhancing routine, the overall appearance of the skin is improved. Fine lines, pores appear less visible, more youthful, plumper, healthier looking skin”. 

The sheet mask is a single use and the actual sheet mask is biodegradable. On the back of the packet it says “Delivers an optimal soft and smooth feeling on the skin and is produced with environmental responsibility in mind. Its’ fibres are created using a sustainable and eco-friendly process and are developed to fully biodegrade in accordance with the European EN13432 standard”.

Remove the sheet mask from the packet. Unfold and apply to the face. Smooth over the skin and I like to massage the product into my skin a bit. Leave on for 15 minutes, then take off and massage in any excess product. 

As soon as I took the sheet mask out of the packet, I could smell the scent, which was quite strong. I could still smell it whilst wearing, but it wasn’t as strong. Once I had removed it, it left a subtle scent on the skin. Sometimes with some fragranced skincare products, they irritate my skin, but this one doesn’t.

The mask has lots of product on, even more than the Aloe and Vitamin E ones. There was lots of product to massage into the skin afterwards, so it does take a few minutes to fully soak into the skin and once it has it doesn’t leave it feeling sticky or greasy.

As with the Aloe and Vitamin E sheet masks, it was comfortable to wear and fits wells.

It leaves my skin looking so much plumper and feeling bouncier. I actually couldn’t believe the difference it had made. My skin looked fresher, smoother, so the pores were a bit blurred, so not as visible. My skin felt soft and smooth and really hydrated. I didn’t apply any other skincare products after using this, as I felt my skin didn’t need it. The next morning my skin was still feeling nicely hydrated. 

This is available to buy from The Body Shop UK £5 and The Body Shop US $6.00.

  1. I've been trying to get more into sheet masks but finding one that fits my face has been a struggle, so far on the pixi glow tonic sheet masks fit my face comfortably.

    1. I love sheet masks and use them regularly. I know what you mean with the fit of the sheet masks, I find each brands fit differently. At least you have found one that fits comfortably for you. Hope you find more soon.

  2. This sounds gorgeous, I'll pick it up next time I'm in store! xx


    1. It is a great face mask. You'll have to let me know what you think to it, once you've tried it out.

  3. This sounds lovely! I love sheet masks but the fact that they're single use has been on my mind recently so it's great that this one is biodegradable! xx

    1. It is a lovely face mask. I love sheet masks as well. Yeah its great that it is biodegradable. It will be interesting to see if other brands do the same.
