Zzzzz-ing with Sleeping Mask - The Face Shop Lovely me:ex Waterful Grapefruit Mask

I am very lazy -let me put that out there very clearly. I like nothing better than curling up on the sofa reading a nice romance novel and sipping juice/chocolate. So for skin care, if I find stuff that I can do while cooking, while doing housework, at office and even during sleep, I grab it.

I got introduced to the whole concept of Sleeping Masks from a sample I got from The Face Shop - check my review here on the Raspberry Roots mask.

The idea that my sleep time can be used for applying face mask to do my skin a bit of good really appealed to me. I was checking out some masks at my local Face Shop store, when I saw this and I went - 'thats soo cuteeeee'. I must say, Korean companies really knows how to package - the coral pink color and nice price tag is enough temptation to buy without much deliberation.

This is priced around $6-8 CAD, not sure as I got this on some sale.

My Experience:

The product comes in a nice tub with wide mouth so its easy to scoop out. The consistency reminded me of a cream pudding. It kinda smell fruity too.It is pretty easy to apply as it spreads without much effort. It doesn't remain as a layer on the skin, so its easy to apply and go to sleep after 5-10 mins. I remove this in the morning, with a wet wipe soaked in warm water. Remember to apply a moisturizer or cream like any other masks.

I have been using it for past 2-3 months and here is what I recommend:

Do you have combination to oily skin? Are you looking for long lasting effects? Are you more concerned about the product quality than packaging?

If you answered Yes to 2 of 3 questions, then this product is not for you. What this does is:

1. Look pretty on your shelf- it does..

2. Gives a nice hydrated soft look for your face the next day; effects lasts for that day
3. Works well on dry to normal skin and for me [normal skin] it worked pretty well this winter

 So, don't buy this expecting any wonder.

This is more like a 'pick-me-up' product after a tiring night. If you have oily skin, it may cause break-out. It didn't for me, but the texture is such that it feels quite capable of that.
