Over the last two years, I’ve been on the hunt for high-quality serums and night creams that really make a difference, even after just one night. While I am still on the hunt, I’ve discovered face masks that are made to wear all night and treat the skin while we sleep — this is a real bonus!
Here are my four favorites so far:
My Clarins RE-CHARGE relaxing sleep mask
Clarins has some BOMB products, but they take some penny-saving to enjoy. If I’m correct, My Clarins is a limited line that offers high-quality ingredients at a more affordable price. Here’s the scoop on their sleep mask:
A relaxing herbal infusion that works as a night cream or overnight mask to quench, plump and recharge skin’s batteries while you sleep, so it looks radiant and refreshed by morning. Cream-gel formula, delicately fragranced with notes of Jasmine, refuels skin with a rebalancing blend of Huang Qi, Fig and Acerola seed extracts—plus detoxifying flower waters—for a healthy-looking, rosy glow.
My Clarins exclusive Healthy In & Out complex is comprised of Organic Coconut Water to put nutrients into the skin and Alpenrose extract to flush out toxins and pollutants.
Your VEGAN FRIENDLY recipe – free of phthalates, parabens, and sulfates – for healthy, radiant, balanced skin by morning. My Clarins is free of all animal-derived ingredients and was not tested on animals.
This mask is light and creamy, and it dries quickly (but isn’t drying or itchy) so it won’t leave a mess on your pillow. I always wake up to clear, calm skin after using this.
I’m currently using the My Clarins Hydrating Beauty Mist and it smells SO good!
YesTo Sleeping Mask
I absolutely love the YesTo brand and this was the first-ever sleeping mask I tried! They have four different sleeping masks — Detoxing, Brightening, Moisturizing, Calming, Recharging — and they are all fabulous choices.
My favorites are the Detoxing, which has salicylic acid in it so it’s perfect if you’re having a breakout, and the Moisturizing, which I feel like my skin could always use.
Just as with the My Clarins, this stuff dries quickly and almost gets to a powder finish, but still doesn’t dry the skin or feel itchy. It’s just amazing how it does not get on your sheets!
You do rinse this off in the morning, but your skin will look amazing!
Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment
This was the first Glamglow product I ever purchased, and although it was a bit of a splurge, the jar lasts a long time and it smells SO good. Here’s the scoop:
THIRSTYMUD™ uses the newest, most advanced, and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps deeply hydrate skin for a dewy, glowing complexion, while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel. GreenEnergy™ smooths and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.
This treatment is more like a heavy night cream that soaks into the skin instead of drying like the others. Perfect for dry skin or regular moisturizing treatments.
I bought this on a whim when Ulta was having a sale on Pacifica products and honestly, this brand never disappoints. If I had to narrow this list down, I’d say the YesTo and this one are the real game changers.
They are similar in the way they dry down but leave the skin feeling soft and hydrated the following day. Here’s the info:
Essential lipids, antioxidants and natural extracts help revive and hydrate. A no-rinse, non-greasy, non-sticky mask with aromatherapeutic benefits for relaxation.
• 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free
• Formulated without: animal testing, animal ingredients, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates, synthetic fragrance and petroleum.
• Smells like geranium and rose absolute
• A creamy mask to help replenish and quench thirsty, stressed, or sun damaged skin
Pacifica has a second sleeping mask that I haven’t tried — NAME HERE — but I’m definitely going to try it!
