the best overnight masks

face-maskI love a good face mask. I’m one of those people who is very easily sucked in by beauty marketing and will buy just about anything promising ‘radiance’ or ‘intense moisture’, which translates into my bathroom being littered with about a zillion different products, masks being one of my favorites, in particular┬áthe overnight mask.

Have you used an overnight mask before? I feel like all of a sudden just about every brand offers a sleeping mask, and I for one am a fan because they’re so simple and a lot of them are super effective. I know a lot of beauty jargon is exaggerated just to sell products (it works!) but there is plenty of research explaining why creams, serums and masks work especially well when used overnight, when the skin is regenerating and repairing itself. My absolute favorite is Clinique’s Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, but I’ve tried a few others that are really great as well.

Here are a few I recommend (let me know if I’m missing out on anything amazing):
