Mask Monday: Sleeping Masks

IMG_0807

What are they?
A sleeping mask is used as the last step of your skincare routine to provide added moisture, brighten & purify, and help seal in your serum, oil, and moisturizer. Different masks have different ingredients so depending on that, you can use more of less frequently. You can use over a moisturizer or in place of, up to you.

I, personally, don’t like to sleep in these masks. I don’t like the feeling of something heavier on my skin when I sleep. After I remove my makeup and cleanse, I apply the mask, and leave it on all night. Right before I go to bed, I rinse it off and then finish up with my serum, moisturizer, and eye cream. I also like to keep mine in my skincare refrigerator for an added calming effect.


LANEIGE LAVENDER SLEEPING MASK

Claims– Delivers intense hydration while you sleep :: helps dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture :: brighten and purify

Price– $25 at Sephora, laneige.com :: ~$20 on Amazon for 2.3 oz

Product Range– Lavender and Original

Pros– Smells SO good :: ingredients–hyaluronic acid :: affordable :: no paragons, phthalates, or mineral oil :: like the lightweight, gel texture :: leaves skin soft, smooth, and plump :: cooling effect

Cons– Cruelty free :: availability–online or Sephora stores only

Final Thoughts– I really love the lightweight formula as lots oh hydrating masks can be very thick. I love the smell and it’s so calming. Even though I don’t sleep in the mask, I can still keep the benefits of it. LOVE this mask!

BELIF AQUA BOMB SLEEPING MASK

Claims– Replenishes and revives dull, dry skin for a dewy, radiant glow :: pillow proof formula that absorbs quickly.

Price– $34 for 2.53 oz at Sephora, belifusa.com

Pros– No parabéns, sulfates, fragrance, dyes, synthetic preservatives :: dermatologist tested :: lightweight, gel formula :: leaves skin soft, smooth, and hydrated :: cooling effect

Cons– Not cruelty free :: expensive :: availability–Sephora or online only

Final Thoughts– I got a sample of this, but I got several uses out of this so the full size would last a while. The cooling effect feels so good and makes me feel like the mask is really working. Again, I don’t sleep in this, but I can still feel a difference in my skin after a few hours of wear.

Conclusion
–I like both, but the Lineage is cheaper ad works the exact same, so I’d go with that one.
–Neither one of these products are cruelty free so keep that in mind if you only purchase cruelty free products.
–Drugstore option 1) Neutrogena Hydro Boost Overnight Mask Pod :: very similar to the belief mask
–Drugstore option 2) Aveeno MaxGlow No Mess Sleep Mask :: smells amazing, no mess application
