Sephora Sleep Masks – What The Hell Are They?

Sephora Sleep Masks – What The Hell Are They?

There are so many different types of masks out from your normal face and eye masks to ones for your hands and feet, but until I made a recent trip to Sephora while in Paris I had no idea sleep masks existed.

The idea of them is to apply a thin layer over your skin and sleep with the mask on to allow it to sink into your skin and do all manner of wonders including hydrating and pumping. I’m up for trying most things and am a sucker for spending money so I popped two varieties of the masks into my basket (I then bought two more when I was in Copenhagen *oops*)

It wasn’t until about three or four weeks later that I remembered about them and thought I better try them. At roughly Β£2.70 per pot ($4 each) they seemed a little spendy as I thought they’d last just for one use, but when you open up the little pot you’ll find quite a lot of product. You only need a thin layer of it so I’d say a pot would last 3-4 goes depending on how much you use. As you can see from the below image I had used this 3 times already and there’s enough product for another go.

Sephora Algea Sea Mask

I was a little worried about mess because I like to sleep on my side and I didn’t want to end up with greasy and sticky pillows, or a horrific looking fringe. I put on a bandana to protect my hair but found even within the ten minutes from applying it to laying down in bed the product wasn’t dripping or runny as a lot had already started to sink into my skin *hooray*

In the morning, my skin actually felt really hydrated and I was quite surprised at how awake my skin looked even though I certainly wasn’t. The thing which usually puts me off about face masks is how messy they can be, and how annoying they are to take off so these fit perfectly.

I’ve tried four varieties how which are the Algae, Lotus, LingzhiΒ andΒ Ginseng, but in all honesty I can’t really see much of a difference in what they do so if you are going to grab some just opt for scents you like.

Have you tried a sleep mask before?

    I have a few eye masks but was not sure how to use them (I got mine whilst I was in Korea and the instructions are in Korean lol) I will try mine soon too

    I have never heard of a sleep mask either. But I guess it’s good to make the most of that time that you are asleep.

    These look very good for the night before the morning where you have to get up early – to give you a head start as it were.

    I’ve never tried a sleep mask but it sounds like a lovely little luxury at that price!

  5. May 24, 2016 / 8:58 pm

    No I have not tried a sleep mask before but now I want too.

    I’ve tried the sleep mask from Aromatherapy Associates and that was lovely, I will definitely be picking up a few of these when I go to USA Sephora later this year, they sound fabulous πŸ™‚

    I love sleep masks. I’ve actually got a few of these ones to try. I’ve used one from Origins that I really like too.

  8. May 25, 2016 / 8:31 am

    The only sleep mask I have used is the Origins one and it is literally the best thing I have ever used in my life! Try it and you wont be disappointed at all, I’m up for trying these though if I can get my hands on them as I’m always looking for more hydrated and awake looking skin x

    I so need this. It’s good to hear it isn’t a messy product as one might assume it was when looking at it.

    I have got some of these, the red ones and I havent yet tried them, so I am interested to see whether or not I think anything of them x

    I’ve never tried a sleep mask before but these look great. I would be worried about lying on my side too

    These sleep masks sound perfect because like you I don’t like removing traditional masks.Must look out for these as I would actually use them:-)

  13. May 25, 2016 / 2:07 pm

    Ok, cool. I need to check those out. I’m a bit fascinated with it now!

    These look perfect! I often get tired and puffy eyes due to hayfever seems like these would help πŸ™‚

  15. May 25, 2016 / 3:34 pm

    Ohh these sound really interesting – I might have to try and get some for myself πŸ™‚ x

    These sound and look so great. Its a shame that there isn’t much of a difference between them as I love using masques for specific purposes but they’re definitely something I’d give a go xxx

    I have honestly never tried a face mask… πŸ™ But I’d love to. I wasn’t sure about the price to start with but reading on they actually sound great for the price!

    Oh these look great! I love a good face mask. Especially sleep masks. I also like the fact your get 3-4 goes out of one little pot and that they’re not too messy πŸ™‚

    I have some sephora masks I need to try. I didn’t pick any of this particular type up though!

    I’ve never heard of these but I like the idea of pampering myself before bed but not having to worry about washing it off etc. Did it help you to sleep better with the scents? X X

    I’ve never really tried sleep masks before either, but I should probably start experimenting and looking after my skin better! πŸ™‚

  23. May 26, 2016 / 8:38 am

    Wow I’m surprised you managed to get a whole four uses out of that tiny little pot! Definitely worth the money then. I have dry skin so I’d better try these out!

    • May 26, 2016 / 10:19 am

      It’s surprising how much is in them! And how little you actually need x

  24. May 26, 2016 / 10:27 am

    i wasnt sure you would be able to get that many uses but its nice to know your get more than one which is what i expected

  25. May 26, 2016 / 10:36 am

    Ooh, these look like exactly my kind of thing! I’ve never used a mask overnight before, but I really fancy trying these out

  26. May 26, 2016 / 6:15 pm

    These look fabulous. Like you I’m always worried that they’ll drip and make a mess or that they’ll be impossible to remove without irritating my skin.

    Oooo these sound fab I would have been put off at first but if it settles on the skin quickly then that sounds perfect x

    Great results but could really be messy which I think will not be a big problem for my side. πŸ™‚

    i like the sound of these! i’m just using frankincense and coconut oil at the moment and it’s making such a huge difference to my skin, but i really love a good facemask!!

  30. May 28, 2016 / 8:53 am

    I commented but not sure where my comment has gone :/ I have to say the Ginseng one sounds great and I would love this to refresh my skin.

  31. May 28, 2016 / 11:18 pm

    I’ve never heard of sleep masks before, I’d totally try something like this!

    I love Sephora but I’d never seen those before! I’ll definitely keep an eye out for them next time I’m in France. x
