Review: Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask Ex ★★★★★
Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask Ex is a cream-textured overnight mask that provides soothing moisture without excess residue, leaving skin glowing by the morning. It is meant to be applied at the final stage of skincare, after the occlusive step, avoiding the eye and lip area.
Scutellaria root, walnut extract and Angelica Acutiloba deliver extra nourishment and nurtures the skin while sleeping. Organic Respiration Layer (ORL) technology creates a soft and light texture, leaving the skin hydrated and supple.
I bought this as a Christmas present to myself as I’ve been converting after it for the longest time. Its pretty and focuses on natural herbs like ginseng, which happens to be one of my favorite skincare ingredients. The opportunity presented itself when I saw it offered as part of a Mask Trio Set. I think this is a great segue into Sulwhasoo for anyone who’s just starting out as the set contains their best-selling masks in deluxe sizes. I’ve reviewed the Clarifying Mask here.
Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask Ex is contained in a sturdy golden-brown soft plastic tube with a brown screw on cap, the packaging is perfect for dispensing the desired amount while being hygienic.
The product has a creamy consistency and spreads out easily. On normal days when I just feel like giving myself a treat, I’ll spread a thin layer over my PM routine for an extra boost. On days when my skin is super dry, I’ll use this like a regular moisturizer. A little goes a long way and my wallet is the most glad about that!
This product smells absolutely divine! I’m not good at describing scents so I’ll just say it smells like oriental herbs. The immediate finish on my skin is soft and velvety.
Side note: I sleep on my side in a fetal position and I’ve had many a sleeping mask nourishing my pillow case instead of my skin. But not this one. Unlike most sleeping masks, this becomes one with the skin and does not sit on top and potentially get wiped off.
They’re not kidding about the claims of hydrated and glowing skin! Unlike most sleeping masks where the effects are felt in the morning, Sulwhasoo’s continued till the next day! Perfect for someone with a busy schedule who hardly has time for skincare yet do not want to compromise on the health of their skin.
I was skeptical about all the hype surrounding Sulwhasoo products until I’ve tried this. I loved this sleeping mask from the moment I used it and have been using it ever so sparingly since. I’ve even converted my Mom! It is indeed on the pricey side but I personally do not think it is overpriced. Check out more Sulwhasoo reviews here.
