This post was originally published almost two years ago (!!!) but I updated it a bit because I am still loving this product so so much – it’s a favorite that I always forget about but every time I go back to it I’m so happy I did. This luxuriously bouncy breathable sleeping mask is one of my all time favorite go-to products for hydrated, more radiant skin and it will be one of yours too! It smooths and perfects skin while you sleep and what is better than that!? Seriously, I don’t know why I don’t do sleeping masks every single night – they are the most amazing little multi-taskers.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask
I am obsessed with this sleeping mask, and I promise, it’s not just because it smells *exactly* like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. But it does, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the scent. It’s truly uncanny.
I love sleeping masks because I am lazy and like the idea of letting a mask do its work while I’m asleep. I mean, why not put that time to even better use? After cleansing, I apply SK-II Treatment Essence and then brush on a thin layer of this mask with a brush (I know you are going to ask – I use this one… I bought a few on Amazon and l-o-v-e applying my masks this way… keeps hands from getting messy and just makes for a more luxurious masking experience! I’ll usually apply it 20 minutes before I plan to fall asleep (ideally before I get in bed to read) so that it has a little time to dry.
It’s packed with hyaluronic acid (to plump + hydrate) and AHAs (to exfoliate). The result is bright, glowy, super soft skin the next day. (And of course, literal sweet dreams – you’ll dream of Jolly Ranchers.)
The formula is a bouncy gel, and the best part is that it’s pillow-proof so it won’t get all over your pillow and/or stain your linens. (I can attest that this is true… I used it every other night for the past week and a half and it did zero damage to my beloved silk Slip pillowcase… yes, I sleep with a silk pillowcase every. single. night. because, wrinkles, but that can be another blog post for another day!)
When to Use It.
This mask is great for ALL skin types (yes even oilier types), and is really amazing to use whenever your skin is feeling dull and uneven. It instantly boosts radiance and you don’t have to do any work!
Why it Works.
This product is packed with AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) that work to gently exfoliate while you sleep (these help with the dullness and roughness).
It’s oil free and really lightweight (making it great for all skin types, including oilier types) and it also contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates and plumps skin, ensuring you wake up looking glowy and awake.
The AHA/hyaluronic acid combo is a real winner as the AHAs smooth your skin and exfoliate dead skin cells and rough surface cells while hyaluronic acid moisturizes. So you wake up with skin that’s exfoliated AND nourished/hydrated.
How to Use The Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask.
Wash your face. Of course. Always, always wash your face before bed. But you already know this!!! You can also gently exfoliate beforehand too, if you have time.
Apply toner or essence (if you use those things) and then pat your face dry.
Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face. As I mentioned above, I love using a brush but you can totally just use your fingers!
Allow to dry. I read in bed for a while, so that helps… but I would say you should definitely allow at least 15 minutes!
Fall asleep and let it work while you sleep. 😉
When you wake up, be sure to wash thoroughly in the morning.
