4 Best Overnight Sleeping Masks
As a perennial dry skin sufferer, going to bed with a sleeping mask all over my face can feel like the ultimate pamper session.
When my skin is looking particularly parched or fatigued, I love an overnight sleeping mask to turn things around. I use them once or twice a week when my face needs a big drink of moisture. Combined with a good night’s sleep, I wake up with plump, moisturized, and hydrated skin.
Erborian BB Sleeping Mask – This is so good. Erborian is a wonderful brand that combines the best elements of French and Korean skincare into one. The BB cream from Erborian is also one of my favorites. This sleeping mask is moisturizing and helps reduce signs of fatigue.
Key Ingredients: Moisturizing glycerine, plant extracts, soybean oil, wheat germ oil, almond oil. Available online.
Black Rose Cream Mask by Sisley – Technically, this isn’t a “sleeping mask” but you can use it as one and I do. It’s the most expensive of my favorite masks and I want to get the most benefit possible by wearing it for 8 hours. It pains me to rinse it off after 15 minutes as directed and watch my money run down the drain. It smells divine and leaves my skin very hydrated and plump.
Key Ingredients: Black Rose, Shea butter, Provitamin B5, Glycerin, and Squalane. Available at Nordstrom.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I’m in love with this light-weight gel formula. It feels like a plumping miracle jelly on the skin and my dry skin drinks it up. It is an Allure Beauty Award Winner for good reason.
Key Ingredients: Glycerin, Apricot, Evening Primrose, Beta-Glucan, Zinc, Manganese, Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium. Available at Sephora.
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask – An excellent drugstore option, this mask is nourishing and hydrating. The one downside is that it’s heavily fragranced, not good for sensitive skin and annoying these days. The fragrance is mostly alcohol and I wish quality skincare brands would stop adding it. Chanel skincare is fantastic but it contains so much fragrance, I feel like I’m putting perfume on my face. That being said, it’s wonderfully hydrating.
Key Ingredients: Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. Available at drugstores.
