My nightly skincare routine is VERY important to me as I think of it not as just downtime for me, but for my skin as well. I pamper it and make sure that I put it to bed hydrated and happy. After cleansing, toning and applying serum, every other night I always use a hydrating mask that I can comfortably wear to bed. I have tried a couple of different sleeping masks and some are so sticky that I find my face sticking to the pillow or covered in cat fur so I do prefer a mask that absorbs quickly.
So far, I have found one sleeping mask I like and now, I have found the second. The Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial ($48 CDN) is a sleeping facial/mask for ALL skin types and is formulated with Wild Rose oil and Vitamin C to combat premature aging and environmental stress. Its weightless and soufflé-like texture work to improve skin texture and promote even and brightened skin tone.
Contained in a glass jar, this sleeping mask looks and feels just like a thick moisturizer, but melts into skin right away. It also smells creamy and is not heavily fragranced.
Final Verdict: I have used Korres for years so I am familiar with the “goodness” and quality of their products. They use absolutely none of the scary stuff and stick to natural formulations (95% natural content) so I feel really good about using their products on my skin.
Wild Rose Oil: Rose oil is a dry oil that absorbs quickly into the skin without that greasy feeling making it perfect for creams and moisturizers. Like a lot of skincare ingredients, rose oil has a number of benefits and is a moisturizer, anti-depressant, antiseptic and is also able to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. This is mainly due to the fact that rose oil also contains Vitamin C which is often used in skincare for brightening and fading dark spots.
I don’t have a lot of hyperpigmentation, so I cannot truly attest to that claim and truthfully, fading dark spots does take months. What I can say is that I loved the texture and feel of this sleeping facial and that when I woke up in the morning, my skin felt just as hydrated as the night before. I take really good care of my skin so personally it’s hard to say whether this sleeping facial is better than what I was using before, but I do enjoy using it because it felt like a big drink of water for my skin! Going into the drier season, this might be a mask/moisturizer to consider!
Korres Natural Products can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada.
Sleeping facials? Is it something you’ve tried or do you see it as just another confusing product to add to your skincare routine?
