Face masks, we love! But who has the time?! Still, our skin could use the pampering. That’s why these face masks are extra amazing — you can do them all in your sleep. These eight are the best face masks on shelves now, and each has a slightly different goal, (and a different mix of ingredients) so you can get exactly what you need, plus some Zs. That means you can literally sleep your way to better skin.
Rodial’s take on a sleep mask incorporates one of the brand’s signatures: dragon’s blood (not real), which plumps and hydrates. It’s a thin, fun-to-apply gel which smells a bit like fruit punch and feels potently moisturizing from first application.
The Kiehl’s take on the skincare trend is all about replenishing the skin’s water reserves. On at night (you’re actually meant to tissue off all but a thin layer to sleep in), rehydrated by morning.
Formulated with hyaluronic acid + Tata’s signature essential oils, this mask has a serum-like texture and a calming, bedtime-appropriate smell.
A light as air gel mask that’s all about hydration. This one feels so good to put on that its tempting to use significantly more than the recommended 2-3 pumps.
Erno Laszlo’s formula is literally to face masks what a tempur-pedic is to pillows. It’s pale pink, weightless, and bouncy texture glides on the skin making a dent in the product, but when you go to re-apply the next day, the surface is smooth again–like magic. It relies on ingredients like desert succulent, prickly pear, and Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids to re-hydrate and plump the skin.
This Korean skincare brand (so you pretty much know they’re good) formulates their sleep mask with walnut extract and hyaluronic acid for hydration, while white mulberry extract helps to calm redness and irritation.
If you’ve never tried Boscia’s tsubaki (that’s the camellia flower) line of products, here’s one to start with. With it’s lovely light fragrant, smell, and potent mix of Asian power-ingredients (in addition to the tsubaki oil there’s Japanese sea kelp and rice bran oil, this feels like a treat to go to sleep in.
Some have compared this magic mask to botox. With ingreidnets like black tea ferment, black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract, and lychee seed extract, Fresh’s mask works to inhibit damaging free radicals and helps to improve skin’s elasticity. If you’ve tried anything from the Fresh black tea collection, then you know the scent is light and refreshing.
