I recently had a reader e-mail to ask me about sleeping packs. Let’s dive into the mail bag and see what she had to say!
I <3 your blog so much! Thanks for bringing such great reviews to us all. I seen some talk about a sleeping pack on a forum and I wasn’t sure what it was, how it was used, and if I needed to use one?
Have you heard of this?
I hope you can tell me some more info.
Thanks so much for the great e-mail.
It’s honestly not a surprise you’ve never heard of a sleeping pack or rather a better term of use would be sleeping mask. Sleeping mask brings to mind a cloth or silk-like mask that we cover our eyes with to block on the daylight or lights as we sleep. Sleeping packs (masks) are commonly associated with actually beauty masks in the Eastern market.
The Western market hasn’t quite caught on to this fade so it’s probably not something you’d commonly see in drugstores or at counters.
What is it?
It’s a cream mask which you massage on in a thin layer or “paint” on using a brush. You leave it on overnight and as you sleep it does any number of supposedly miraculous things for your skin such as ones that contain anti-aging ingredients, whitening ones, plus obviously it hydrates and moisturizers skin. In the morning, you simply wash it off and poof! Instantly gorgeous skin!
I’ve used alot of various ones and the promises are all big however the actual results aren’t necessarily all that amazing.
As a moisturizing treatment they work a treat but for whitening, brightening, or easing fine lines, well, I’ve never seen major results in that area and the results I have seen are more temporary than long term.
Do you need a sleeping pack?
It’s just a fun extra to add to your skincare regime if your skin needs a little pick up in the middle of the week! In most cases results are temporary but still even temporary results are worth it sometimes!
Hope this helps Heather!
