Having a proper skincare routine is crucial to protect our skin from pollutants and to ensure that our skin will still be in tip-top condition 30 years from now. But let’s be honest, skincare can be a time-consuming process and sometimes we just want to go to bed as soon as possible after a long day. If you’re looking for a quick and fuss-free way to enhance your daily skincare, we highly recommend getting sleeping masks. No more waiting for 10-15 minutes before rinsing masks off, with sleeping masks, just apply and go to bed! If you’re new to the whole sleeping masks craze, follow along and we’ll guide you through recommendations for various skincare needs!
1. Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalising Mask ($73.00)

The mask contains ingredients such as Scutellaria root, walnut extract and Angelica Acutiloba that gives the skin extra nourishment while you sleep. This mask also makes use of the Organic Respiration Lay (ORL) technology, which helps to create a soft and light texture that will leave your skin hydrated, bright and supple when you wake up.
Promising Review: “The Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask is my favorite. The others work alright depending on the time of year, but the Sulwhasoo actually calms the redness on my face. It also makes my face feel nice and hydrated the next day. Totally recommend this mask!” – Florence.
COSRX is a popular Korean skincare brand with products made from quality, safe and natural ingredients. The COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask, (Available on cosrx.sg) uses rice water which is a natural ingredient that gives your skin a smooth and brightening effect upon application.

Promising Review: “I have quite sensitive skin, so I need to be careful on which products to put on my face, and this mask hasn’t given me any sort of irritation in the two months I have been using it. It is really hydrating, and I mainly use it overnight, although I occasionally use it as a moisturiser after my routine in the morning. I have noticed that my skin feels definitely softer after leaving it overnight and it does give you that subtle glow/brightening effect in the morning, which I believe is due to the rice component. Don’t expect drastic changes, but I think it’s definitely worth buying and incorporating it into your routine.” -Michelle W.
