Whatever you call them—overnight masks or sleeping masks—I’ve never really liked them. I realize this might be a surprising statement, considering I’m a beauty editor and I’m here to gush about one, so let me explain. I have dehydrated, redness-prone skin. Even though I sound like someone who could use an overnight mask, I never found one that worked for me. In the past, most of the overnight masks I tried were too heavy or fragranced for my sensitive skin. After using them, I would only see more redness, more irritation, and (surprise!) clogged pores in my T-zone. It’s like they were doing the opposite of what an overnight mask should do.
I had all but given up on them completely until I saw one that was trending on TikTok. The reviews were so convincing that I decided to give it a shot. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but I’m going to anyway: I love it. After one use, I woke up with calm, glowing skin.
