When looking for a good mask, I always overlooked the Overnight category. I wondered how does someone sleep in a way that it won’t get everywhere in the morning?!
I never gave it the time to think about how many ways masks like this really can be used, now I have I can’t believe I didn’t look into it sooner.
COSRX Full Fit Propolis Honey Overnight Mask is a multi-use gold mine. Especially with an active ingredient like Propolis Honey.
Let’s talk about Propolis and its benefits, this ingredient is one of natures best and its rapidly increasing in popularity in skincare.
Propolis is a combination of tree sap and beeswax made by bees to fill in honeycomb crevices for protection. One of its main benefits in skin care is its Antibacterial properties, this can help with Acne and any other kind of inflammation. Propolis is also associated with all those good words we like to see I regards to skincare: Smoothing, Softening, Moisturizing, Soothing, the list goes on.
The bonus of this product is that it’s amazing for sunburn, its natural properties soothe and help speed up the healing process. TIP: store this mask in the fridge so you’re ready after any sun heavy days!
The texture of this mask is so soothing and easy to apply, it’s not sticky or overly thick. It creates a lovely smooth light barrier on the skin that I felt comfortable to leave it on for several hours.
The tube is clean, hygienic and easy to not dispense too much product at once. It has no fragrance which is always a plus for anyone with sensitive skin.
In my opinion, the best way to use this mask would be post shower for an extra hit of hydration. Especially if you plan to follow with a heavy face of make-up, followed by your normal skin routine this would create a great hydrated base.
I would recommend this product to people with sensitive skin, small acne areas of concern and dry to slight combination type.
For me with combo to oily skin, it was not quite hydrating enough. If you’re looking for a heavy mask to really plump up your skin, you may need to consider another product.
However, for sensitive skin this will be a dream. It’s light, fragrance free and full of amazing active ingredients to help with a range of skin concerns.
I will definitely be keeping a bottle of this in the fridge during summer for when I spend a few too many hours in the sun!
