I’ve always been cautious of overnight masks as I’ve always thought they are going to spoil my beautiful bed linen, I’ll be very aware of them and afraid to touch my face at night by accident; or deprive my beloved husband of restful sleep due to some funny smell – he’s not a big lover of aromatherapy in any shape of form.
But when I tried the Soothing Overnight Mask by Base Formula, my understanding of a night mask has changed.
This high quality product is not greasy at all; it’s light, odourless, and most importantly gets absorbed by the skin in minutes. So I can put the mask on just before going to bed and by the time I am ready to snooze off, I practically don’t feel the mask on my face and it doesn’t leave any marks whatsoever.
The next morning the mask comes off easily with warm water, and the skin feels smooth, nourished and plum. I feel like using it almost every day.
No wonder – this product was designed to support the skin’s night-time repair and recovery process. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, these intensely moisturising face mask absorbs deep into the skin, to boost hydration levels and promote a healthy, radiant glow.
The Soothing Overnight Mask is blended with Aloe Vera and natural plants oils to nourish and protect dry, sensitive skin.
Aloe Vera is always amazing in any product as it hydrates, softens and conditions the skin, and can help to calm redness and irritation. Lavender and Chamomile – two of my favourite calming essential oils – have soothing, healing, antiseptic properties which are also beneficial for a wide range of dry and irritated skin conditions. And finally, Frankincense essential oil has a rejuvenating, healing and balancing effect, whilst Cedarwood has antiseptic, anti-itch properties that are particularly beneficial for irritated skin.
The Mask also contains a bunch of other goodies such as Wheat Germ, Soya, Cotton Seed and Rice Bran Oils which are all rich in nutrients, essential fatty acids and antioxidant Vitamin E to moisturise, protect and condition the skin.
