My Scheming Sakura Night Jelly is a moisturizing gel sleeping mask that can be used to restore hydration to skin over night. There are such an array of sleep masks available from Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and other Asian countries they tend to all run together for me as sometimes they aren’t all that amazing.
I must admit I did like this one though!
The My Scheming brand might be familiar to you as they make some excellent sheet facial masks. They kind of started out like My Beauty Diary by creating a variety of sheet facial masks but proceeded to start releasing smaller skin products recently including peels, cleansers, and sleeping masks.
This is a water based gel which can be used in several ways. The most traditional use would be as a sleeping mask. It’s one of the last products you’ll apply at night prior to heading to bed. Simply apply a thin layer, allow it to absorb, and wash it off in the AM. The gel is lightweight, has a rose scent that’s quite pleasant, and absorbs fairly easily.
It actually does a fairly good job of refining my skin and smoothing rougher, drier areas. The sides of my nose and cheeks were flaky and this softened the areas and got rid of the flakes. It made my complexion smoother overall.
You can also multitask the product and use it as a lightweight moisturizer or as a facial mask which you can rinse off after wearing it for 20 to 30 minutes. As a lightweight moisturizer it’ll work fantastic for those with oily skin as it hydrates gently without feeling too greasy or oily or leaving a shiny finish.
Overall, if you can get it for an inexpensive price tag it’s worth picking up as you will see results after use particularly on drier skin. Sasa.com sells My Scheming for a fairly good price as well as a few other online shops and stores. A jar should cost you around $6 to $8 but I wouldn’t spend more.
