Liz Earle Superskin Overnight Mask


Sleeping masks tend to present women with a dilemma. Most of us are pretty wedded to a particular skincare regime, enjoying the benefits and aiming for incremental skin improvements that come from ritual use. But on the other hand, sleeping masks are wonderful things: skin-plumping, reviving, brightening – the eight-hours-sleep-in-a-jar vibe that weary skin sometimes needs, just as our bodies crave a really deep kip, now and then, to make up for lost zzzzzs.

What to do? Well, we’re firm believers in the power of sleeping masks –basically, richer and more intense versions of night creams – so we don’t mind being unfaithful to a regime to slip one of these in now and then.

The legions of Superskin fans, though, needn’t worry about missing a night of Superskin magic – because ta-dah! This Superskin Overnight Mask has joined the line-up, packed with radiance-boosting Persian silk tree extract, antioxidant pomegranate fruit extract and emollient buruti, borage, rosehip and cranberry seed oils, among other skin actives.

This three-step application technique is suggested for optimum benefits.

1 Apply a grape-sized amount of Superskin Overnight Mask to face, neck and décolletage.

2 Smooth over the entire area. Starting on the forehead, make large outward circles towards the temples, before gliding across the cheeks. Repeat three times.

3 Massage onto skin, avoiding the delicate eye area. Leave on overnight.

You could absolutely use this every night, if you wanted – though with a grape-sized dollop, you’d get through even 100 ml quite fast. Our recommendation? Once or twice a week – and if that means being unfaithful to your usual skincare, your secret’s safe with us.
