Overnight mask for busy mums

[By Big C]

Okay.. confession.. this is not only recommended for busy mums! It is also for the lazy mums, tired mums, and mums who like me, almost never fail to doze off while trying to get the little ones to sleep… Zzzz….

Yes, I doze off quite often especially when I latch Small E to sleep, and on those tired out days, I have no wish to climb out of bed for anything. But I still do try to keep to some skincare because my skin is sensitive (I have eczema and vasomotor rhinitis) and I dislike the uncomfortable feeling of dryness and random zit like stuff that pops up from no where…

So if you have read Small C’s post on Skincare Haul : CosRx, you might have guessed that I am recommending something from CosRX too!

CosRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask 60ml

Enriched with more than 68% of Rice Extract, this mask provides intensive nourishment and deep moisturization to help the skin clearer and softer.

INGREDIENTS

Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Betaine, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Kernel Oil, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Arginine, Carbomer, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum

KEY INGREDIENTS

Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract 68.90%
Niacinamide 2%

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and it  is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin.

The texture is thicker and is in white (see picture above). It feels richer on my face but it still absorbs without any sticky residue. I woke up in the morning with a moisturized and tender face. Usually I just splash some water, dab dry with hand towel, apply toner and everything else.

I don’t use this everyday. I alternate this with the Honey one. And sometimes I simply went to bed without anything! *Tired Mum*

CosRX Ultimate Moisturising Honey Overnight Mask 60ml 

Enriched with more than 87% of Propolis Extract and natural beeswax, this mask provides intensive hydration with refreshing moisture.

INGREDIENTS

Propolis Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Arginine, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carbomer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Beeswax, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Adenosine

KEY INGREDIENTS

Propolis Extract 87.26%

Propolis is commonly used for its healing, antiseptic and restorative capabilities.

I personally prefer this Honey one because it feels lighter and yet hydrating. It feels sticky shortly after application but turns smooth after absorption. Somehow I always feel that my skin is kind of healed overnight! The redness will be gone or my strange spots will be less stingy. I even used it as my day moisturiser at times and it doesn’t feel too much at all!
