Get your beauty sleep

I have been using sleeping masks for a while now but it wasn't until I tweeted about them did I realise that not all my readers know what I am babbling on about. I hope that this little summary is helpful to you as I really enjoy using them.

What are sleeping masks?
Well they are gel type moisturisers that can be used 2-3 times a week as your final skincare step before you hit the sack. Sleeping masks boost the moisture levels for your skin with the aim of you you waking up with a glowy moisturised face.

I know that ladies with oiler skin types use these masks alone before bedtime. However, my dry skin needs my normal night cream etc beneath it to see real benefits in the morning.


Laneige Sleeping Pack



This is probably the most popular sleeping mask available. Thanks to Vanity-Fashionista, I got to try this for myself.




I love this mask and have since ordered more! It has a light texture that sinks right with no sticky residue. I like the light clean and fresh fragrance and find that it dissipates after a few minutes.

After using this, I wake up in the mornings with super soft plump skin. I would not hesitate to recommend this to fellow dry skinned ladies.

Innisfree Green Tea Pure Sleeping Pack




I am a fan of most things green tea and so it was only logical for me to try this.



I am very happy to report that I like this too! The Innisfree mask leaves a slightly sticky residue on the skin but I don't mind this at all as it is probably more moisturising than the Laneige one above. I use this in winter and when my skin feels super dry and I always wake in the morning with skin that feels well nourished and
bright.


Oh the little white particles you see above dissipate on the skin when applying the mask I think they add extra moisture!

The Mutli Tasker
Although these are essentially wash off masks ( you are supposed to wash them off in the morning), I think that their uses are far reaching:

  • I never fly long haul without the Laneige Sleeping Pack. This stuff works wonders against cabin air.
  • I keep the Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping mask in the fridge and use it on hot days after sun exposure and it is extremely cooling and comforting and great to use on the body too.
I have a few samples of these sleeping masks and will be offering them up to my UK followers very soon so do keep your eyes 'pon the blog.

  9. I just started using sleeping masks by Naruko and I'm still experimenting. I still love my sheet masks more but I think sleeping masks for long haul flights are genius — you get the hydration without the scare factor ;-)
