It makes perfect sense for @laneigeca Sleeping Mask to have lavender infused into the formula. Lavender is a calming ingredient, the essential oil has been known to help with stress and sleep when diffused in the air or sprayed in a room. Having it in a night cream to help calm and soothe the skin, but the light scent could also help with sleep as we use it before bed 🌙 The texture of this sleeping mask is a really light gel-like texture, with almost a watery flow. I use this once a week as a night cream and I’ve never felt so hydrated. Another lavender product I’m loving is @niu.body lavender toning mist which I spray on at night, and at to my custom masks for a soothing effect. The lavender scent doesnt slap you in the face, its actually nice and light and refreshing. . As always, you can save 20% off @niu.body with my code Leena20

Products That Put The "Beauty" In Beauty Sleep
😴🌙 Bedtime stories. Laneige gifted me their Eye Sleeping Mask & Lavender Water Sleeping Mask and I've been enjoying them so much. Both products have a very light texture and they give you an 𝒆𝒙𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒎𝒆 𝒃𝒐𝒐𝒔𝒕 𝒐𝒇 𝒉𝒚𝒅𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 💦 to your parched skin. I especially love the Eye Sleeping Mask's ceramic ball applicator which makes it so easy and gentle to use. And the Water Sleeping Mask's airy lavender scent helps me to relax right before drifting away to dreamland. Zzz. LANEIGE - Lavender Water Sleeping Mask LANEIGE - Eye Sleeping Mask
A little I can’t live without 💦
LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask was my first full-size k-beauty purchase and I’m so glad I made it 😍 this mask works for me in all seasons - I stick to the original formula but they have other wonderful variations now: LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask& LANEIGE - Lavender Water Sleeping MaskI apply an even layer at night and wake up to plumped skin that is glowy & hydrated 🥰 no fuzz, I wash my face and continue on with my morning routine. Using this a few nights a week has really improved my skin! And it’s such an affordable night mask! If you haven’t tried this one yet I highly suggest it!
Having a rose moment with products that have changed my resistance towards rose scented products 🌹 I’m typically very sensitive to rose but Fresh Beauty rose sleeping mask and it’s the least rose scented product I’ve tried so far and not overwhelming in any way. I have used a lot of sleeping masks but never seen a 2-step one like this. The first step is a rosewater gel made with rose and cucumber extract that has a very nice cooling sensation. Texture reminds me of PTR's cucumber mask and I used to use that by putting it in the fridge, so this could be a good trick for the summer! The second step is a water-cream that blends well with the gel and sinks into the skin really nicely. It's a really nice replacement for a moisturizer and/or oil and I feel like the gel in the first step could even replace a serum for summer days when your skin doesn't need that much hydration. I'll be using this again tonight for a nice wrap-up to a busy weekend! 🌹

You’re the Toast and this is your Avocado Spread
cleen beauty - Avocado Hemp Butter Sleep Mask For $10 you can smear this green butter on your face and become your favorite cafe staple, the avocado toast, and get that boost of hemp seed oil that has become popular in skin and health lately. Two fads for the price of one! All joking aside, this sleep mask is bomb. It’s smooth as silk and the fragrance is natural and very light. You use it every other night at the end of your routine, and like many other sleep masks, you rinse in the morning. I have dry skin, so I feel like I’m constantly pumping hydration into my skin. I don’t, however, like going to bed feeling like I have tacky glue on my face just to keep a moisture barrier going overnight. This stuff soaks in quickly and nourishes overnight, leaving me looking hydrated in the morning which is honestly a miracle because my apartment’s AC is on the fritz so I’m hotter than fresh toast. I will repurchase this mask because I love the light texture, the light smell, and the gentle hydration. If you’ve seen my other posts, I really like cleen beauty products for their clean ingredients, cruelty-free production, and cheap price. It’s the benefits of an expensive clean brand for an accessible price.

Treat yourself! A fun “extra” product
I recently got this sample size of the FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask , and after a few uses it’s safe to say that I love it. This mask claims to leave skin soft, supple, and plumped with intense hydration. It contains ingredients like honey, propolis, royal jelly, and glycerin to soothe and deeply moisturize. This mask is supposed to warm upon application, which is worrying for sensitive skin. Even though it wasn’t irritating for me, I associate warmness with a product irritating my skin so it was strange for me. I normally think of soothing products and being cooling, so just be aware that this is SUPPOSED to warm up upon application. This has the consistency of honey, and it smells faintly like honey as well. It turns white as you massage it in, and I find that it washes off easily and leaves my skin feeling super soft and plump. I leave this on for about 30 minutes and the warming feeling lessens by the time I wash it off. This mask is $38 for 1.7oz or $56 for 4.1oz. I think that would last a while with once a week or so usage, so I would say it’s worth it if you want a good moisturizing mask that feels luxurious. I definitely don’t think this mask is a necessary step for me, but it’s certainly one that I enjoy using. I would recommend trying a sample first if possible to make sure the warming effect doesn’t irritate your skin.

FARMACY - Honey Potion 3/5 💮 ——— Claims to hydrate, soothe and revitalize - Hydrate: Yes! / Soothe: No! / Revitalize: Yes Texture - Syrupy honey like which transforms to cream Scent - Wax and plastic Parabens - No ——— I have a love-hate relationship with this mask. It makes my skin really warm, like it’s on fire, which I get is the point but I do not like that feeling and it also leaves my skin really sensitive! It’s red for the longest time after using it. I can’t have it on more than 5 minutes. And I don’t know why because I don’t have sensitive skin! But, the big BUT is that it improves glow and radiance of the skin! So I don’t enjoy using it, and it doesn’t show immediate results but once it does I really like it for it... This is why it is getting a mediocre score. I get why people love it and oh it is a cult favorite but it wasn’t for me. I also have a problem with the smell? Is anyone with me? I expected honey, not this plastic and waxy smell... It improves radiance and it gives me a glow! I felt soft and moisturized but it’s just not comfortable using it. The first time I used it I had it for the suggested time, 10 minutes, and it burned on the part between my nose and my lips so bad I had to wash it off on that part... it wasn’t the best first impression. I find other products giving me similar results which are more enjoyable to use. What I really like though is the consistency and how it transforms from a honey-like texture to a cream when putting it on the face! Not for me though. I can occasionally use it.... or maybe not. I haven’t decided. If I feel a little sadomasochistic maybe. Purchased at Sephora - ~$45 (got the mightiest mini set)

As someone who struggles with insomnia sometimes, anything that can soothe my senses, like the laneige Lavender Water Sleeping Mask , is more than welcome. If you were worried about it having an overwhelming lavender scent, don't be! It's actually very subtle and mellow and just enough to be soothing but not to tickle my nose 😁. The watery texture is lovely and hydrating without feeling siliconey or sticky. Love it! I actually think I prefer this to the original!

Best Sheet Masks
I don’t usually use sheet masks but I love having these with me on the go, especially when I’m traveling My favorite from the line is the calming mask, it has the perfect balance of a soothing and hydrating effect. A delightful blend of jasmine, known for its healing, moisturizing properties, and relaxing chamomile in this natural cotton sheet mask work to instantly restore skin – and being – into a calm, soothed state. These are really inexpensive and do a good job of what they’re meant for - would highly recommend especially to have with you in the go peach slices - Calm mask
