I was looking at all these Asian brand “sleeping packs” and “gel masks” where you apply a mask with gel texture on your skin and go to sleep for the mask to work – usually for moisturizing benefits. It then struck me that I could do the same with a gel moisturizer! So I did my experiment and here’s a weekly treat I give myself 🙂
What you need is … a gel based moisturizer <- stating the obvious 😛
My gel moisturizer of choice is currently Vichy Aqualia Thermal Aqua Gel. Its quite new in the Vichy skincare range and is a light gel texture that’s translucent and feels watery and cool on the skin.
I was using it as a day time moisturizer before. It works great because its so light and non sticky and keeps my skin all lovely and moisturized and interestingly, cools down my skin too! But I’m using the Guerlain Super Aqua Triple Protection in the day now, so my Vichy Aqualia Thermal aqua gel is my weekly “sleeping pack” mask. Here’s how I do it.
