I received this mask for review from Elizavecca, and am super excited to show you my results! This mask comes in a jar with a cute hygienic lil spatula. The mask itself has this super cool bouncy, gelly texture, which you can see in action here:
As a sleeping pack, I applied it at the end of my nightly routine, swapping it out for my regular nightly moisturiser. Lately, I’ve been using the ‘7 skin method’, a popular method where you apply multiple layers of a hydrating toner to maximise hydration. I only need 2 layers to experience good results, so I popped the Aqua Coat over 2 layers of Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion. I woke up to AMAZINGLY well-hydrated skin - definitely better results than with my regular night moisturiser.
Again, the only drawback was that water alone wouldn’t rinse it off. When using this mask, it’s super important to remove any leftover residue to avoid blocking pores and causing acne. Unfortunately, I haven’t been using it for long enough to determine if it’s brightening claims on dark spots are working, but it does leave me with a nice, moisturised glow.
We can take a look at the full ingredients here:
Purified Water, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Caulerpa Lentillifera Extract, Adansonia Digitata Seed Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Water, Rosemary Extract, Origanum Vulgare Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Thyme Extract, Lavender Extract, Adenosine, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl PEG/PEG-10/1 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, 1,2-Hexanediol, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance.
It's great to see niacinamide so high up the list - it's definitely the key ingredient for the brightening claims this mask makes.
Overall, I give this a 4/5 - the point is knocked off for the scent. I'm just not sure such a strong, lingering scent is necessary!
Have you tried this, or any other sleeping pack before?
1 - Terrible: Negative effects on skin.
2 - Mediocre: No change in skin/claims not met.
3 - Average: Performs as expected.
4 - Good: Would repurchase unless I try something better.
5 - Amazing: Meets trifecta of perfect packaging, formula, & cost.
