Morning everyone! Happy Monday, as I always tell my students! A bit sarcastic, of course, haha. 😉 Mondays are always heavy coffee days.
I felt the urge to write this review because I’d actually set this product aside for a bit to try out new things, but all of last week I’d been neglecting my new products and had been falling back to this one! I even set aside my super-moisturizing Missha snail sleeping mask!
Why? Because last week I had a couple breakouts (as I mentioned in my FOTD post last week). This sleeping mask is both moisturizing and effective in treating my acne.
Water, Glycerin, Glycereth-26, Butylene Glycol, Agrimonia Eupatoria Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Arginine, Carbomer, Trehalose, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Disodium EDTA, Salicylic Acid, Yellow 5, Blue 1.
On CosDNA, the following were flagged as a (1) for irritation/acne:
Butylene Glycol (solvent, moisturizer), Carbomer (emulsifier)
So here’s what it looks like under the hood:
It’s clear on the skin and does not dry sticky at all. It has a gel-like texture that really reminds me of the Nature Republic 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel. It doesn’t take forever to absorb. Like all sleeping masks, this should be your last skincare step of the night.
I was hesitant to use it too much at first because I thought it might dry out my face a bit with the tea tree and the salicylic acid. But it turned out to be very moisturizing on top of being really effective at keeping my face clear! The morning after, my face is free of redness; my acne won’t be gone, but it will have calmed down. For banishing acne, I’ve been using something more potent (which I will tell you about this week!).
In conclusion, I am really loving it and will scramble to repurchase this when I run out! Luckily, for now, all I have to do is run to the store. I’ll have to keep careful stock of this when I move back to the States!
It’s 30 ml of product, so that’s a decent amount, and the ingredients aren’t too shabby. I took this picture when I first got it. I’ve used it for about a month now (with somewhat regular use), and I’ve gone through about half of it, so it should last you roughly two months – less if used daily.
In Taiwan, you can buy this at your local Watson’s, and it’s pretty cheap (around $150 NTD?). You can find it online for about the same price at RoseRoseShop or TesterKorea.
Have any of you guys tried A’Pieu sleeping/wash off masks? I’m excited to try out their other varieties!
