The Beauty Explorer Skincare Edit: COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

Who doesn’t want to wake up to gorgeous looking skin? Overnight masks are the perfect 2 in 1 combo to keep your skin on check while sleeping. The Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is the one I’ve been using for a few months now, and I’m absolutely lovin’ it!

Cosrx is a Korean brand that I’ve been using a lot of lately, and for a number of good reasons!

It’s not tempting and good-looking cosmetics. However, only thinking of your skin health, we maximized good components and minimized harm ingredients in reasonable price with our honesty. 

A brand that is transparent with it’s customers with regards to it’s ingredients will always leave an impact on me!

Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

The Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask helps transform our skin overnight with it’s soothing, calming, moisturizing and nourishing properties. Although the honey overnight mask is marketed as an “overnight mask”, it may be used in one of 3 ways:

  1. Overnight (applied at the end of your night time skincare routine and left overnight)
  2. Wash off mask (apply a thin layer then wash off after 15-20 minutes)
  3. Moisturizing cream (last step in your skincare routine)

How ever you apply it, the mask is easily absorbed in to skin leaving no sticky / greasy residue behind. This makes the overnight mask great for people with oily skin.

Appearance and Texture:

The moisturizing honey overnight mask come in a very minimalistic, fuss free and sleek looking package. It has a lightweight, runny gel – like consistency, that when applied, the skin absorbs it quickly leaving no residue behind. As the mask is made of 85% propolis extract and natural beeswax the mask has a light yellow tint to it. There are no colorants present in the mask. The mask is also almost scent free.

Application and Results:

The Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask has become a must have skincare product due to it’s soothing and moisturizing properties. I often find that after a long day and wearing makeup for 6+ hours, my skin NEEDS something really cooling and moisturizing. Although the Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask does sooth the skin naturally, I usually pop the mask in to the freezer for 10 – 15 minutes before slathering it.

Although the mask comes in a runny gel-like consistency, the mask spreads on to the skin easily and will not drip once applied. The results are fantastic as expected (not biased, I swear!). The mask definitely moisturizes and calms the skin, making it a must have mask for the hot Dubai summers. Nothing beats coming back home, washing all the makeup off and applying a honey mask that will cool your face down will nourishing & deeply moisturizing it.

Because I feel the mask performs better when left on the skin for longer hours (ie. overnight or as a moisturizing cream), I do not recommend using it as a wash off mask. The longer it stays on, the better the results. When left overnight, the results are spectacular – dewy, healthy radiant looking skin.

Recommend?

Yes! I would definitely recommend this mask especially as a summer mask. The mask is suitable for all skin types, however those with oily / combination skin would benefit the most from it. Those with dry / combination skin would be better off with the Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask (read my review here).
