Update: Read the last paragraph for my latest (and pretty gross) thoughts about this mask.
Sleeping masks seem very similar to night creams, but with sleeping masks you put on more product (maybe a thin, but still visible layer on your face) so that it can seep into your skin overnight. This is the general idea, but I'm not too fond of it. I put on one layer, which was very wet and smooth to the touch, and it easily absorbed like thick face cream such as The Face Shop's Olive Essential Cream. Since it's a sleeping mask, I put on a second layer that will hopefully penetrate my skin overnight. Surprisingly the product doesn't make my hair feel sticky or gross since it's more watery. When I woke up, there was a layer of cream that remained, which felt a bit gross. My face did feel smooth and a bit waxy (like using those thick night creams), so it would be a good base layer for BB cream, but the amount of mask still on my face was too much. I didn't want to wash it off either, because it would be like washing off lotion.
- The citrus scent is quite pleasant.
- It feels soothing on the face (except for on my zits).
- As a sleeping mask, it wasn't messy while sleeping. Definitely a plus!
- My face was smooth the following morning (but there was way too much excess mask still left on my face).
- Using this mask did sting my zits, but after about 10 minutes the sting was gone.
- It just feels like I'm putting on too much night cream...which is why I'll just use one layer next time, as a night cream.
