Do you know what a sleep mask is? Is it a facial mask? Is it a moisturizer? How do you use it correctly? On my review of the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask you’ll discover all that, besides how it can help you reduce blemishes and fight premature aging. Doesn’t it sound amazing?
Heeeello! Those who usually read my posts will remember this mask from my night routine to reduce spots. If you want to know why it is such a great product to help you reduce spots and to keep your skin perfectly hydrated, let me introduce it to you!
PRODUCT: FRESHLY JUICED VITAMIN E MASK
SKIN TYPE: TODAS
RECOMMENDED FOR: UNISEX
A few days ago I told you about Klairs in my review of their hydrating Supple Preparation All-Over Lotion (which you already know I love). This brand, of Korean origin, stands out for creating products of the highest quality, without overloading them with unnecessary ingredients and made to suit all skin types. For me, they are an unquestionable win.
Today I am going to talk about a very special product: the Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask. And why is it special? Well because it is a mask, but at the same time it is not. I know, it sounds strange, but this is a very particular product. You know that masks are developed to give our skin a boost of nutrition that sometimes our routine is not able to provide. In this case, Klairs have designed a product that can be used as a mask, as a sleep mask or as a moisturizer. So, if you want to use it as a mask then you can rinse it off and continue with your routine as you already know. If you want to use it as a sleep mask you can let it work all night and rinse it in the morning. Finally, if you want to use it as a moisturizer you just have to let it work at the end of your beauty routine.
And now that you know it’s such a versatile product, you’ll ask yourself: what does this product really do? Its content of vitamin E makes it a super antioxidant that helps you improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin. In addition, by containing niacinamide, it is ideal for those who aim to reduce spots and moisturize the skin in depth, because if you use products with vitamin C (like this The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%) it will allow you to enhance its effects for so rebalance better the tone and texture of the skin. So if you are looking to reduce spots, improve wrinkles and hydrate your skin in depth, it is a great addition to your routines.
One of the most curious things about this product (in case the possibility of using it in three ways wasn’t enough for you) is its texture. It’s sooo gelatinous, but at the same time it’s very light. When it comes into contact with the skin, it melts quickly, allowing it to spread out perfectly and without any patches or lumps. With the amount equivalent to a chickpea you have more than enough to apply everything you need. What makes its texture curious is that, once you remove it, the mask regains its shape inside the container (this is called shape memory cream), I recognize that I love seeing how it recovers its shape, it is addictive!
This cream has a bright white color and a wonderful fruity scent, using it is an experience that I highly recommend. It is relaxing, moisturizing and refreshing. For me, it is everything that a mask should be.
As I have mentioned before, this mask contains among its ingredients vitamin E, with antioxidant properties to keep your skin young, elastic and firm, and niacinamide, which helps to rebalance the tone and the texture of the skin to reduce spots. In addition, it contains ceramides, which help to keep the skin well hydrated and elastic. This mask does not contain perfumes.
This mask comes in a transparent plastic container with a metallic-looking lid and details in black and gray. In addition, it comes with a small plastic spoon to catch the amount of product you need without putting your fingers into the cream. As an advice, with half a spoon you have more than enough.
In case you doubt it, I am very happy with this mask. I really like to use it as a sleep mask and as a moisturizer and the result is fantastic. For me, it’s a great discovery and I completely recommend it.
HOW TO USE:
As I told you, this mask can be used in three different ways. You can use it as a normal moisturizer, you can use it as a sleep mask (and act all night) or you can use it as a mask and remove it with water before continuing with the rest of your beauty routine.

You don’t need to do all the steps from this routine (but you should always cleanse, moisturize and use sunscreen).
Remember it’s key to do a patch test every time you consider adding new products to your skincare routine.
