As mercury increases and days get warmer, you need to up your game in terms of skincare , so that your skin stays moisturised and luminous. Overnight sleeping masks is a new category of beauty products that caught my fancy. Night is the best time for any kind of nourishment to the skin as the product stays for long. Also can you think of a more relaxing moment than this? A moment just for ourselves, with a mask on our face, soft music and a glass of wine or a piece of dark chocolate in your hands.
These masks can help in detoxifying/ purifying the skin. Each of these masks is based on a different formula to suit different skin needs. They are easy to apply and do not feel greasy or oily on the skin plus there is no need to rinse. I decided to try sleeping masks from two brands : Sephora and L’Oocitane
Here’s the detailed review :
- Sephora : I tried the rose sleeping mask which is intended to give intense moisturising and an instant radiance boost. It has a gel like consistency and feels very light on the skin. The mask is priced at 400 rupees and is for a single use but it has enough product to be used 2-3 times. I did not feel any moisture surge or radiance on my skin after getting up in the morning. The sheet masks are a much better alternative both in terms of quality and pricing.
- L’Oocitane: Pivoine Sublime Mask – This non-oily, light-textured gel-mask is aimed at reducing signs of fatigue like dullness and dehydration. This one too gets absorbed quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all. I couldn’t notice much of a visible difference when I got up in the morning , as in my skin did feel a bit more soft, but it didn’t wow me. Given the pricing (390 rupees), I had more expectations.
I ordered L’Oocitane one from Amazon and the Sephora one from their online store. Hope you find this post helpful, do tell us your experience with any of the sleeping masks that you have tried. Ciao ❤️❤️
