Sleeping pack concept is very popular in Asia as well as this jelly thing. Most Asian creams are not really creams but more like jelly light gels which penetrate easily (a necessary thing in a warm climate!). What’s even more popular are the sleeping packs or masks: these are special night masks that you apply instead of your night cream. I’ve tried such kind of a product before (Laneige Sleeping Pack, I was not impressed though) and I decided to give it another try. The brand Inoherb is a very popular mass market brand in China that you can find practically anywhere so I decided to give it another try.
As you can guess, Inoherb Revitalizing Sleeping Mask is supposed to hydrate your skin and rebalance it. The packaging is very simple: it is a big pot of gel:
The texture is really light, it’s almost like water. It is shaky like a pudding:
You won’t need a lot of it for the whole face but you can apply several coats if you need more hydration. Once applied it gets transparent and penetrates quite quickly into the skin.
I would say that this product is more for a yougn skin: it gives a tiny bit of hydration which is not enough for me. It calms my skin and it feels so cool when you apply it which I like. I apply it several times a week instead of my cream but I can say that I prefer my cream because it gives me way better hydration. So I am definitely not impressed with this product. Also, I don’t like how it smells: Chinese love their skincare products to smell very natural like different kinds of grass but to me it smells more like medicine, the fragrances are quite strong. I am not sure I’ll keep using it on my face, maybe I’ll just use it up on my body and I definitely will not repurchase.
Overall note: C+.
Where you can buy it:
It’s everywhere in China: in Watsons, Vanguard, Mannings. I’m not sure if you can buy it elsewhere though.
