I should know better, but I’ve been neglecting a few areas of my skincare routine recently. One is using a facial exfoliator, the other is using a mask. No particular reason for this except being lazy! But I decided to rectify this and try a mask that I’ve had in my collection but never tried, called Night Night Soothing Face Mask from Nails Inc.
Thought they did nail polish? I’ve known of Nails Inc because of their polishes and nail treatments. But over the last few years they’ve expanded into skin care products. This was the reason why I bought this mask, out of curiosity. I’ve used their polishes before, nice range of colours and effects….but skin care? And this being half price at the time of purchase convinced me more to play guinea pig and buy it.
What is this mask supposed to do? This mask is designed to be used over night, and gives the skin a fresher appearance. Helping it to recover from the stresses and pollutants it comes across during the day.
Packaging. The mask comes in a little pot which in itself sits in a card board sleeve. The pot needs to have its lid pulled back to get to the product ( think of the sauces you get from certain takeaways and that’s pretty much the same type of packaging ).
Consistency. This reminded me very much of a gel type serum. White in colour, quite thick but the texture had an almost waxiness to it.
Scent. Delicate but a beautiful clean, floral with a slight sweetness to it. This smelt more like a body lotion than a facial product but I found it so enjoyable to smell.
How to apply. Onto clean skin, massage a thin layer of mask over the face ( avoid eye area ). Leave on over night and cleanse as usual the following morning.
In use. You get 10 ml of product which is one application. I felt that was a lot of mask to put on my face so used only one third. This was enough to give me a thin layer over my face and neck. Easy to apply and very quick and clear with no colour on the skin. It felt as if I had applied a night cream onto the face because of it’s texture. To look at my skin it was obvious something was on it because there was a slight shine to it but didn’t look oily. The scent from the mask wasn’t obvious and perfect strength while on.
The morning after the night before. My skin didn’t dramatically change when I woke up. But I did expect the mask to have sunk in, which surprisingly it didn’t…well not totally anyway. My face still felt as if there was something on it as I felt a light waxiness to it, although not as much as when this was first applied. My skin wasn’t matt in look, it looked like I had face cream on it. Didn’t feel dry, felt very nourished and treated.
Washed off. I cleansed my face as usual. Again, no massive change to my skin look wise but it did indeed look and feel more rested which was what I wanted. Not dry but hydrated, and ready to start my morning skin care routine.
Any surprises? I expected this to sink in after a few minutes which it didn’t. After accidentally touching my face a couple of hours after applying this, I found the feel of the mask still there. The remainder of the mask I thought would be left on my pillow yet all it left was a feeling of protection ON my skin and not anywhere else!
Who would this be good for? This mask is designed for all skin types but for me the skin that would benefit from this more is the dry type. Dry naturally, or dried out due to extreme weather ( heat/cold ). If I was lucky enough to go on holiday abroad this year this would be slipped into my suitcase for sure!
Recommended? 100%! Affordable, easy and quick to use and does what its supposed to do which is to give your skin the rest it needs from the day before. Great scent, provides protection and hydration, what more can you ask for? Perfect mask for the lazy skin care lover.
