Your new favorite skin care routine, please. These overnight power masks moisturize your skin soft and radiant while you sleep.
Power in style
Grown Alchemist Age Repair Sleep Masque, 67 € /40 ml
Score: 4½ / 5
Promise: The Australian brand, known for its minimalist packaging, celebrity fans and products stripped of unnecessary ingredients, was launched in Finland towards the end of the year. Night mask peptides promise to improve skin texture and smooth out signs of aging.
Experience: Applying a creamy mask is a luxurious experience down to the scent and feel. The thickest-looking mask is quickly absorbed into the skin and does not remain sticky. Slightly flaky skin on the armpits wakes up in the morning softer and moisturized. Sure choice!
Biotherm Life Plankton Mask, 64.90 € / 75 ml
Score: 3½ / 5
Promise: The deeply moisturizing and revitalizing night mask helps the skin recover from the stress of the day and regenerates the skin during the night. Also suitable for sensitive skin.
Experience: A gel mask that feels cool is wonderful to apply on the face after the sauna. The gel dries to a matte finish on the skin and does not stick to the pillowcase. The skin looks clear in the morning. Ideal for normal, oily or combination skin.
Unna Nordic Lauha Nurturing Sleeping Mask, 51 € / 50 ml
Promise: In the night mask of the domestic natural cosmetics brand, the water has been replaced with moisturizing birch sap. In addition, the mask contains oat and track extract to reduce redness. Much-talked-about prebiotics have also been added to the ingredients right now to support the skin’s own microbiome.
Experience: The creamy texture feels wonderful – the skin, plagued by dry indoor air, really absorbs it. Birch sap smells fresh. In the morning, the skin feels rested and the reddening of the nostrils and cheeks are more evenly toned.
Tip! The mask remains fluffy when applied with a brush or the mini spatula provided.
For aging skin
Nivea Q10 Power Sleeping Melt-in-Mask, 15,50 € / 50 ml
Promise: The creamy night mask has twice the amount of Q10 coenzyme compared to the brand’s night cream, which promotes cell regeneration. It is found naturally in the body, but its amount decreases with age. The mask’s other main ingredient, creatine, fades signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Experience: The cheapest night mask for the test does its job. The skin feels more velvety in the morning. It is good to wipe off unabsorbed mask wrinkles in the morning. An odor-sensitive scent can feel dull.
Medik8 H.E.O. Mask, 66 € / 2 x 50 ml
Promise: The novelty mask of the globally award-winning skincare series nourishes and moisturizes chronically dry and particularly moisture-poor skin. The jar has two compartments: first a blue water-based gel is applied, followed by a white cream that nourishes the skin.
Experience: Although the spread is considered twice, the effort is worth it: the face is bright in the morning. It’s like having a facial! The makeup cream glides on the skin treated by the mask like a dream. Worth the price, especially when the jar contains as if two products.
The Body Shop Hemp Overnight Nourishing Rescue Mask -yönaamio, 31,90 € / 75 ml
Score: 3½ / 5
Promise: The active ingredient in night mask, hemp seed oil contains fatty acids that treat and soothe reddened skin. The mask promises to moisturize the skin for up to 72 hours without a greasy feeling on the skin.
Experience: The mask is greenish, but fortunately it is absorbed into the skin colorless – the pillowcase is saved. The strong odor also dissipates. The skin immediately looks more audible, and after a night the mirror clearly reflects a rested-looking complexion. Great for revitalizing dry skin.
