I’m a workaholic by nature and I absolutely love the idea of products toiling away for me as I’m catching up on my zzzzzzz. For a workaholic like me, making time for spa/facial seems like a tall order therefore having products that work on my skin overnight is like a dream come true. It’s the least disruptive way of treating your skin and when you wake up its plump, hydrated and refreshed.
I have trialed few products which I use in a rotation:
Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask ($25) – Fruity aroma, thick cream texture and I occasionally use it as my night moisturizer. I’m pretty sure Origins don’t recommend using it every night, but I do and I love it! It doesn’t cause any breakouts and my skin feels seriously hydrated next morning.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask ($23) – Light bluish color gel consistency with no noticeable smell. It absorbs instantly in the skin with no tacky residue.
Super Facialist Una Brennan Rose Intense Moisture Mask (£8.99) – I just want to take a moment and rave about heavenly rose scent. OMG if you love roses, this is it!!! Anyway regular cream texture which forms a part of my aromatherapy overnight mask.
Derma E Evenly Radiant Overnight Peel ($16.95) – Now this product doesn’t specifically get categorized as an overnight mask however the results it delivers next morning are nothing short of fabulous. I use 3-4 pumps of this cream on my AHA toned skin, slight tingling sensation but nothing dramatic as such. Next morning, my skin appears to be well rested and noticeable improvement in overall tone and texture.
Beauty Diary Arbutin Refreshing and Whitening ($15.99) – As we all know these are the mask sheets and you might wonder why do I have these under overnight masks category. The serum/liquid/goodness the mask sheets are soaked in, provides the skin with wholesome goodness. After the mask sheet has completely dried, usually there is a bit more liquid left in the packet which I don’t toss away but liberally apply on my skin.
Schaebens Feuchtigkeits Maske (with Aloe Vera + Avocado + Urea) – Ok its easy to be put off by the word Urea on packaging! I totally get it. This mask comes in thick creamy texture, I use it like Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask and results are similar.
