One of LANEIGE‘s hero products would definitely be their sleeping mask. It’s meant to be applied before bedtime so that it works throughout the night to restore moisture to your skin. This is the time when your skin is more permeable and receptive to what’s applied to it. However, it’s most susceptible to lose moisture during this time so it’s so imperative to have a hydrating and repairing nighttime skincare regimen to counterbalance this overnight water loss.
Many products on the market are named ‘cica’, which actually isn’t the name of an ingredient. This is the Greek word for ‘injury’. Cica products are used to care for damaged skin such as irritation or redness. Cica products contain an ingredient called madecassoside, derived from plant extracts, which helps to soothe the skin. LANEIGE’s Cica Sleeping Mask contains an exclusive ingredient to the brand that is more effective than madecassoside.
My skin is sensitive so it can easily react or breakout, so depending if I’ve endured a long day, or depending on the time of the month, many factors can influence my skin’s state, whether it be free radicals, lack of sleep, hormones or even other skincare products that I’m using. I love how the texture feels so velvety and luxurious on the skin. It definitely is a treat that I can indulge in once a week or even many times a week. It’s a hypoallergenic product, so thankfully my skin doesn’t go out of whack!
After cleansing my skin, I use a toner, serum and a moisturizer. As the final step, I take a dab of the product and massage it on the skin. A little goes a long way so the generous 60mL tub will last you a very long time! It also comes with a little spatula to avoid contamination.
SRP: $45 for 60mL
