Philosophy Back to Nurture Beauty Sleep Mask

I am currently obsessed with Philosophy Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Beauty Sleep Mask ($55). This is a super rich sleep mask that replenishes moisture and hydration to skin overnight so you’ll wake up with smooth, soft, well rested skin that looks freaking incredible.

Dry, dull skin?

You need it!

Philosophy Back to Nurture Mask

I purchased Philosophy Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Beauty Sleep Mask during one of Philosophy’s many sales this month (there’s a sale right now for those interested with up to 30% off your order using promo code hotsavings! It’s a tier based promo code so the more you spend the bigger the discount which ranges from 10 to 30% off your total).

If you’re never used a sleep mask you should definitely read my article giving you more info on what sleeping packs or sleeping masks are.

I don’t always find sleeping masks very beneficial to my normal routine and I actually prefer a regular PM moisturizer so I was highly skeptical about trying this. Sleeping masks aren’t very common in the US market but the Asian market is flooded with them and the ones I’ve tried aren’t super hydrating so I just prefer using a regular anti-aging moisturizer vs a sleeping mask. Granted, sleeping masks aren’t the end all in moisturizer but they are something nice to treat your skin to once or twice a week. But as I said most aren’t moisturizing enough for me so I don’t really bother indulging.

Philosophy Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Beauty Sleep Mask

Now, Philosophy Back to Nurture Deeply Replenishing Beauty Sleep Mask is expensive and I had my reservations about indulging but I was able to get it 40% off during a recent Philosophy sale so I felt a lot better about the price. However, I will say that at the full $55 price I would indulge again because I loved it!

Philosophy skincare almost always impresses me (sometimes I get a little miss here and there but a majority of their skincare is very good to my skin!) and this is a product I feel comfortable raving about!

Of course, at the moment it is a little useless to be since along with the warmer weather my skin is producing a lot more oily so I need a lot less moisturizer! But in the Winter? My skin is going to love this stuff!

This is a very thick gel-like texture and it smells a lot like Miracle Worker Moisturizer with a fresh, floral scent. I use it once a week but in the Winter I imagine I’ll use it more often. I simply take a quarter size amount and I rub it gently between my fingers, now I press it gently onto my face. Don’t massage it on, you don’t want it to fully absorb, just press it gently onto your skin. You can even palm your face if you like by gently placing the palms of both your hands on your cheeks, forehead, and chin to allow the mask to absorb. It doesn’t leave a film behind and it does fully absorb as you gently work it into your skin. You can even give yourself a little massage with it should you like!

Now head to sleep!

In the morning, your face will feel incredible smooth and soft. This is highly moisturizing! It not only gives my skin a much needed boost of moisture but my duller skin looks brighter and well rested in the morning. Seriously, this stuff gives you that eight glasses of water look!

Loves it!

Big Muse Approval for this one.

    Thanks for the review! My skin has gone from oily all year to combo in the summer and very dry in the winter and I’ve had to change up a lot of my products. You always talk about your dry skin and you’ve been a fantastic resource for me while I’ve made this transition to dryer skin. I’ll pick up a sample of this in the fall.

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure my dear! When you try I’d love to hear your thoughts 😀

  • Susan T.

    I have really dry skin and find that most sleeping masks don’t moisturize enough too. I’ve tried quite a few Korean brands but surprisingly my favorite is from Julep. I love Philosophy and this sounds great but it is pretty expensive. I like to slather mine on with a trowel! Lol!

    • Isabella Muse

      haha Susan! 😀 beleive me you won’t need a trowel! A little bit does the job well 😀

  • Liz

    You said “Don’t massage it in!” Then in the next paragraph you said ” You can even give yourself a little massage with it should you like!”.I don’t understand the controversy…Are you NOT to rub it in ??

    • Isabella Muse

      Don’t panic, there’s no controversy. As I explained you just want to leave it a thin layer on your skin and you can very gently massage it on allowing it to not fully absorb. No matter how you apply it, it’s very, very effective at it’s job of adding plenty of moisture to your skin.
