Sleeping masks or sleeping packs would be something most of us are familiar with by now. It’s a popular skincare product in Asian, particularly Korean skincare ranges and can be found in all ranges, from the wallet-friendly budget priced ones to the higher end pricey ones. I find it interesting that few Western brands have hopped on this trend, because I think sleeping masks are the best thing ever!
The reason I often get lazy to use a mask (yes, I get lazy too!) is because I get lazy to clean my face twice (or 3 times) in one routine. Often, a hydrating or treatment mask comes in a cream form that you apply, leave on then rinse off before going on with the rest of your skincare routine. With a sleeping mask, you apply it, leave it on and go to sleep. HOW EASY IS THAT? Why aren’t more brands making sleeping masks? Who knows! But I’m glad the Koreans are.
And I’m especially glad to have picked this one up from department store (and slightly more luxurious) brand, Sulwhasoo. I remember a few readers telling me in the comments last year, just how lovely this mask is, and one day when I was passing by the counter, I decided to splurge. I can’t remember the price anymore. It’s been too long but it could be something close to RM200.
But man, do I love this! Previously I used to use the very popular Laneige Sleeping Pack, which is pretty good if you ask me, but this aging skin needs MORE! More attention! More treatment! More revitalizing goodness! And this Sulwhasoo Overnight Revitalizing Mask gives me all that 😀
