This is a facial mask I have absolutely adore, which is also one of the exciting things I wanted to share this month! First I saw Dr.Jart+ Water-Max Sleeping Mask featured in Lisa Eldridge's last year's Christmas Gift Ideas video... I've been using it for about two months now, and I must say it has become my favourite winter facial! With my combo/oily skin type that occasionally gets a little dehydrated during the harsh months of winter, it is very difficult to find a hydrating mask that won't brake me out, and this one does not! The reason being is that it is incredibly light, its gel-type texture forms a protective layer and you only need two pumps to cover face and neck! It feels like you are applying a moisturiser rather than a facial as it doesn't sit on the surface of the skin but goes straight in, and in a minute or two it's dry to touch... It's fantastic for either skin type, dry, combo or oily! As I am currently learning, Japanese skincare is pretty amazing, very scientific, precise to the point, and free of anything unnecessary!
The idea is that you apply this facial after cleansing your face, ten minutes before going to bed leaving it on... This overnight treatment helps to create smoother skin texture, whilst the Oat and Cactus Extracts maintain moisture in the skin... One of my new-found favourite skincare ingredients, Hyaluronic acid, is a great anti-ageing active ingredient, which intensively supplies moisture to dehydrated skin... After this facial I wake up next morning with a hydrated and plump skin... In fact I am wearing it right now, couldn't resist as it is sitting on my desk staring at me... Oh and it smells lovely too, very light and fresh!
