What is a sleeping mask?
A facial mask that you can use throughout the night while sleeping with it. Specially formulated for overnight use, one needn't worry that the product will absorb moisture from your skin.
How to use?
After your nightly skincare routine - cleansing, toning, serum, moisturizer, the sleeping mask is the last step of your regime. You can also skip your night cream and see the mask instead since sleeping masks have hydration properties too.
Apply a thin and even layer all over your face and neck, and go to bed. When you wake up the next morning, simply rinse the mask off.
It is recommended to be used twice or three times a week.
The Face Shop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask
This advanced lifting line formulated with Wild Himalayan Raspberry Roots instantly lifts tightens pores and re-contours the skin that lacks resilience.
It has a gel-like texture and gives you that slight cooling effect. The smell of the Raspberry Roots extract is so refreshing too! I like that the product is easily absorbed as you massage it into your skin, so I don't have to worry staining my pillow.
The best part - Normally I would wake up to a matte skin, but upon applying the sleeping mask, my face feels exceptionally smooth & hydrated, and there's a slight brightening & uplifting effect!
Etude House Moistfull Massage Mask
A moisturizing facial massage + hydrating treatment + overnight pack which contains Baobab Tree extract to supply skin refining moisture.
3-in-1 massage applications:
1) Facial massage -
massage gel for 2-3mins & rinse off with warm water.
2) Hydrating treatment -
apply a thick layer, rinse off with warm water after 10-15mins.
3) Overnight pack -
spread a thin layer before bed time, rinse off in the morning.
This jelly-like texture has a warm floral scent but might seem too strong for others. I like to keep it in the fridge for that chilling effect when I apply it on my face. I resent the stickiness feel that I couldn't wait to wash it off. The worst part is, it's tricky to wash it off since I had to apply a thicker layer to better enjoy the hydyrating properties.
As a sleeping mask, the absorption rate is so much slower in comparison with TFS. I had to apply it 30-45mins before I go to bed, compared to the immediate absorption with the Raspberry Roots mask. However, it does provide a decent hydrating effect the next morning.
