I love the Sephora Aloe Vera Sleeping mask! It hydrates and moisturizes the skin! After just 1 use your skin will feel softer refreshed! There was no irritation either!
No miracles but great last step punch of moisture
I have the green tea, pearl, rose and pomegranate. The first night I used the Rose I put it on my eyelid under my brows (because it said to use on eye area) and I woke up with puffy eyes. Since, I have not gone around my eye contour and haven't had any issues and love these masks. I like that i tape it shut and get a few days uses of it (about $1 a day) and then I don't have to open the next pack. I enjoy using different masks and often times I will open up a big jar then use it a few times then go to a new one, while the, often expensive, jar is turning bad. These are perfect for traveling as well. I like to put these on on top of my usual skin care routine at night, and sometimes I'll even wear them alone and each morning I wake up with nice soft skin. They do not perform any miracles and I have not noticed any changes in pigmentation or tightening but I still love these masks as a boost of hydration, and I was not expecting them to do much so I was not disappointed. In fact I haven't noticed much of a difference between them except I do favor the pearl and rose. This is why I find they are best used in conjunction with your usual products, as a final step to seal it all in, or on top of your actives/serums in place of a moisturizer.
Green Tea All the Way!
I own three of these sleeping mask packs: pearl (brightening & perfecting), green tea (mattifying & anti-blemish), and pomegranate (anti-fatigue & energizing). I've not used the pomegranate one as of yet. The pearl mask had me waking up with bright skin, so, yes, it did do what it claimed. As for the perfecting aspect, it did not meet my expectations. I'm currently trying to fade out dark spots, but after using the mask for a week and not seeing any improvement, I switched to the green tea, which I am presently using. I love the green tea mask! After 4 days, I've noticed my dark spots are fading faster, especially my chin, which I'd nearly given up on. This mask also combats oiliness, and it shrinks my pores into oblivion. I'm hoping the pomegranate is just as good as the green tea, but at least I've found the one for me!
I bought 3 of the pearl & 3 of the ginseng masks, both left my skin feeling hydrated in the morning, but the pearl one felt more hydrating and made my skin looked brighter in the morning; the ginseng one is supposed to be a firming mask but I never noticed any firming feeling, and my skin looked the same, noting noticeable, so the pearl one became the front-runner. I might buy the pearl again and even try the hydrating ones, but the ginseng never again. Another plus is that each packet gives you 3-4 uses depending if you apply it on your neck or not. The only issue here is that the packet is not resealable, but don't take all the lid off and put something heavy on top after until empty.
