Aside from recipes & DIY, today I wanted to share with you guys a review of one of my favorite products that I've been loving for the past few months. You might remember this from my previous Target Beauty Box - For Her post which I purchased way back in December, so click through for an more in-depth review!

Price: Full size (80 ml): $23
I received this sample size 20 ml as a part of a Target Beauty Box that I purchased for $10, but the full size retails for $23 at Target. I feel like that this product in itself pretty much made the box worth it for me and I was suuuper excited to try it.
Packaging: As this was a sample product, the packaging was not as pretty as the full size product but it wasn't a major issue for me plus the small size is adorable anyway. You really don't need to apply very much since a little goes a long way. It's also made in Korea!
Texture/Scent: The water mask is a pretty baby blue gel that has a lovely fresh scent that's not overly perfumey or thick. The smell goes way pretty quickly after application. I love that it's not sticky and applies very smoothly.
Use: I apply this at night before I head to bed and it absorbs into your skin very well within about 10 minutes. It is intended for deep hydration/moisturization of dry skin (me me me!) and you really don't need very much to cover your face/neck. I am very pleased with this product because I wake up in the morning with super soft, fairly hydrated (!!) skin before rinsing it off. I'm not sure if this product alone or in combination with other products decreased the size of my pores but I do see a slight improvement.
- pleasant fresh scent
- non-sticky formula
- dries/absorbs quickly
- hydrates well
- makes your skin super soft
- a little product goes a long way
- a bit on the expensive side
Overall, I would highly recommend this sleeping mask and give it a 9/10.
