Beauty Sleep, Literally

Beauty Sleep, Literally

The concept of beauty sleep is nothing new to me – to be honest, I'd sleep all day long if I could. But as I embark on a hectic spring/summer filled with school and an exciting new career, I'm thinking about the concept in an entirely new way. 

Lately, I've turned to overnight beauty masks to ensure I look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed no matter how many hours of sleep I truly got. And of all the overnight masks I've tried, none compare to those I've tried from Laneige. My love affair with Laneige all started when I had the opportunity to test the Water Bank collection, which featured the Water Sleeping Mask – see the full review here. But it wasn't long before my love grew to include the Firming Sleeping Mask and Lip Sleeping Mask as well.

After such an incredible experience with the Water Sleeping Mask, I decided to test out the Firming Sleeping Mask. The formula is slightly heavier, and features a 'semi-solid memory form gel that melts into skin to support its natural elasticity retention and visibly tighten natural contours'. I will admit that the texture confused me at first, but the second it hits skin, it melts into a light-weight gel. I tend to use this mask when my skin is feeling extra sluggish, and is in need of a serious overhaul. It's revolutionary formula features sleePOP™, which visibly firms with resilience-building peptides and hydrating tuberose. Plus, it also features the aromatic sleepscent™, so I rest easy and awake to skin that looks and feels firmer, refreshed, hydrated, and radiant.

Of course, as someone who is on an endless search for hydrating beauty products, I found myself head over heels for the Water Sleeping Mask. After trying endless overnight masks that delivered nothing but a painful experience when I had to rip my face from my pillow come morning, I was ecstatic that I was able to wake with little pain, and a plump and a radiant complexion. This unique mask is formulated with highly concentrated ionized mineral water and ceramides to deliver intense doses of moisture to stressed, parched skin. And it smells incredible thanks to its Aromatic Sleepscent™, a blend of orange flower, rose, and sandalwood.

Finally, I've acquired quite the addiction to the Lip Sleeping Mask. Although the intention to hydrate and moisturize my lips throughout the day is always there, let's be real, it rarely happens. So I adore coming home to this thick softening balm. 'Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its berry mix complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses.' Plus, its exclusive moisture wrap™ technology features hyaluronic acid and minerals, which coat lips in a protective film that locks in moisture and active ingredients all night long. The results? I wake up to flake-free, supple lips, that are ready to take on another day of babbling!
