The lightweight formulation perfect to be used as a moisturizer as it absorbed into the skin quickly leaving the skin well hydrated and silky smooth like baby skin.

ULTIMATE MOISTURIZING HONEY OVERNIGHT MASK SPECIAL INGREDIENT

Propolis is an incredible ingredient often used in Korean skincare products. Let’s get to know what is propolis and where it came from. In short, propolis is a resinous mixture produced by bees that are used to fill in honeycomb for protection. Bees collect the sap and combine it with their own discharges and beeswax that turn sticky and brownish substance used as a coating to build their hives.

Lots of research have shown that propolis provide amazing benefits for skin such as anti-inflammatory properties, powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal, and high in antioxidant. Propolis is also effective in treating Vulgaris acne, increasing collagen production and is soothing to the skin. This makes propolis as one of the most beneficial ingredients for all skin types, especially for acne-prone skin conditions!

This overnight mask is loaded with 87% propolis extract, an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient that accelerates the healing of acne and skin sensitivities. It also contains beneficial and moisture-sealing beeswax that provides long-lasting moisture to the skin.

Propolis Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Arginine, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, BeesWax, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Adenosine.

PACKAGING, TEXTURE & SCENT

COSRX have been attentive to their users and changed the overnight mask packaging from a tub into a plastic tube packaging which makes it more hygienic and user-friendly. It comes with 60ML/2.02FL capacity packed into a slim, off-white tube packaging. So it fits in every bag, even small pouches.

The sleeping mask is a slightly yellow-ish gel and is translucent. Due to its lightweight and non-sticky formulation, the gel quickly absorbs into the skin. Cosrx have followed their traditional way of pairing a scentless products together. Almost all of COSRX products are scentless which make them suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. For this overnight mask, I didn’t detect any particular scent, just a subtle scent of sweet honey. 

3 WAYS TO USE THE OVERNIGHT MASK

  1. As an overnight mask (sleeping mask)
    At the last step of night skincare routine, apply an adequate amount on the entire face.
  2. As a wash-off mask
    Apply a generous amount and spread out evenly. After 10-15 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water or wipe it off.
  3.  As day moisturizer
    Can be used during the day as a face moisturizer as it is formulated with non-sticky and non-oily formulation, making it perfect as a day moisturizer.

MY THOUGHTS

At first sight, the gel does look slightly like honey and as soon as the gel touches the skin it gives a cooling and soothing vibe to the skin. It absorbs nicely into the skin without leaving any film residue behind.

The overnight mask also provides intensive and long-lasting hydration to my skin as I always wake up with plump and well-hydrated skin. I think this overnight mask even works wonder on its own. To test the intensive hydration claim, I tried applying this mask alone without any pairing it with other products and I was amazed at how plump my skin looks when I woke up in the morning.

I gave more points to this product as it didn’t irritate my skin in any way. This is not a mask that can help in treating acne but, if you need something that provides hydration to the skin this mask will be a great help. As the ingredients are full of anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation properties, it won’t trigger your sensitive skin. In short, it is very “friendly” to my acne-prone skin as this mask didn’t make my skin break out.

I love using this as an overnight mask or day time moisturizer. But due to the hot and humid weather, I prefer to use it as a day time moisturizer because it doesn’t make my skin feel greasy thanks to its lightweight formulation. It also works well under makeup as it smoothes out certain dry patches on my skin especially around my mouth and nose area. I don’t recommend using the mask as a wash-off mask since it works great as a moisturizer and I think it such a waste to wash the mask off since it contains lots of beneficial ingredients to help with skin’s healing.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

Overall, the gel base formulation of this product will be very suitable for normal, combination and oily skin type due to its lightweight gel texture all of the above skin types will love how it feels on top of the skin because of the non-greasy formulation. It sounds simple but hard to fulfill since I’ve tried a few moisturizers that claim to be lightweight but still feels heavy and greasy on the skin. Furthermore, with the promising ingredient lists especially propolis extract, this mask will most likely suit the majority of skin types. YMMV.
