This Sleeping Mask Was Made for the Dark

When you go to sleep, your body winds down from the active lifestyle you lead. Your skin, however, is a different story altogether. It is during the wee hours of night, when you are fast asleep, that your skin starts to restore itself. Since your skin undergoes natural self repair during deep sleep, it’s important to catch the recommended number of hours of shut-eye and follow a proper evening skin care routine. As far as your routine goes, moisturizing your skin is a must. You can use your favorite night cream before bed OR you could also use a hydrating sleeping mask that works the night shift. Enter: Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night. The brand recently sent over a complimentary sample of the Aquasource Everplump Night for the team to try, and we’re sharing our full review of it ahead!

The Benefits of Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night

This gel-textured sleeping mask that self-reforms and creates a makeshift second skin barrier to help lock in and replenish surface skin with plumping moisture all night long. It’s formulated with dark-cultivated algae extract and helps boost recovery and replenishment for an ultra-revitalized, well-rested appearance. Instead of waking up to skin that feels tight, dry, and uncomfortable, you can wake up to skin that’s intensely replenished and looking plump. With continued use (after at least one week), you can see skin that looks younger, firmer, and more elastic.

Who Can Use Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night

Good news! This sleeping mask is designed for all skin types. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or sensitive, you can reach for this formula when you’re looking to replenish your complexion with hydration overnight.

How to Use Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night

In the dark before sleep, apply a generous amount of Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night onto a clean face and neck. Massage the formula in circular motions for about a minute, avoiding the lip and eye contour areas. Wait for two minutes until the formula is fully absorbed into your skin before laying your head down on your pillow.

There are times when you come across an overnight mask so good, you wonder how you’ve ever gone to sleep without it.

Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night Review

I should start by saying that I’m a big fan of sleeping masks. They’re the ultimate lazy girl skin care product since they work hard while I snooze through the night. All it takes is a little pre-shut eye prep work and BOOM, wake up to benefits.

Long story short, the “minimum effort, maximum impact” is my go-to skin care motto on days where I’m just too tired to go through my entire routine. That said, the story doesn’t always end well. Over the years of trying countless sleeping masks, I have discovered that all formulas are not created equal, and some do not so much as come close to living up to their hype. (Harsh, but true.) There have been instances where I’ve woken up and noticed absolutely nothing different about my skin—no plump look or feel, no replenishing moisture, nada. It’s frustrating, sure, but then there are times when you come across an overnight mask so good, you wonder how you’ve ever gone to sleep without it. And that, my friends, is the perfect cue to talk about one of my new favorite sleeping masks: Biotherm Aquasource Everplump Night.

When the Biotherm team sent over a complimentary sample of Aquasource Everplump Night, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous jar. A gorgeous mix of rich, transparent blues and blacks—reminiscent of swimming deep in the ocean—this product is one you’ll want to keep front and center on your vanity. But what I found most interesting about this sleeping mask is that one of its ingredients, a dark-cultivated microalgae, is fermented in the dark. Only in the dark is the microalgae able to produce an extract rich in ‘energy-generating’ molecules. Typically, I apply all of my sleeping masks with the lights on, so my experience of masking in the dark with Aquasource Everplump Night was truly unique before I even got to catching Zzz’s.

Once the formula was applied, it absorbed within minutes and felt cool and comfortable on my skin. Upon waking, I noticed my skin felt intensely replenished with moisture and appeared more plump. I look forward to using it continuously to see even more results with time!
