Overnight face masks. I can’t live without them! Here are 2 that are great for normal to dry skin. They are Trilogy Age Proof Overnight Mask (RM153, 60ml) and The Herb Farm Hydrating Overnight Face Mask (RM138, 50ml). Overnight masks are masks you apply as the very last step of your regular evening skincare. I usually apply my skincare after my evening shower, but I wouldn’t go to bed yet. So I apply the mask about half an hour before I head to bed. That gives enough time for the mask to sink in so that it wouldn’t stain my pillow case. Some overnight masks allow you to use it in place of moisturizer, but because I have dry mature skin, I always apply my moisturizer.
Both Trilogy and The Herb Farm overnight masks promise to boost hydration, and it’s good to note that the Trilogy Overnight Mask has vitamin C in the ingredients. It is quite high up in the ingredients list, so I’m assuming the dosage is significant. Vitamin C works very well on my skin, keeping it even toned and bright. Glycablend and L22 are derived from a blend of oils that basically improve elasticity of the skin. So other than hydration, this mask will help to brighten and firm.
The Herb Farm Hydrating Overnight Mask does hydrate and I wake up to bouncy skin. I take it as the main purpose, because once skin is hydrated, lines are softened, skin just looks more youthful. The same goes for the Trilogy Overnight Mask. I don’t use a lot of it, just a thin layer, massaged in half an hour before bed. I do this twice a week and have been religiously alternating both masks for the past few months. I notice my skin look softer and more glowy. This addition in my skincare has definitely given my normal routine a boost.
Do you use overnight masks? I like wash off masks as well, and I use those as a quick pick me up. Overnight masks are great as regular guys who come once or twice a week just to kick things along. If you’re looking for something to give your skin a boost in hydration, I suggest these. Inexpensive, and effective. As usual, if you’re in Malaysia, you can always order online from TNS Skin Lab. I notice they have promotions quite often, so it’s worth a look.
