The Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask is a strange one! It’s a little bit like pink ectoplasm when you open up the jar. The formula is a wobbly, water-jelly like substance that feels both wet and cool when you put it on your face. But then it does a weird thing and starts to feel more like you’ve put oil on your face. I loved trying this out just because it’s very different indeed, although I would say don’t put it on immediately before bed otherwise you’ll end up with a wet pillow – wait at least five to ten minutes for the wetness to go and the oil to take over.
See, if I was offered this as a dessert, I’d tuck right in!
The remit of the mask is to plump and hydrate overnight (with some anti-ageing elements as well) and I think its use is best for one-off skin boosts rather than as a regular part of a routine. At £95, it’s eye-wateringly expensive so it really needs to be saved for special occasions!

The Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask uses some interesting ingredients such as prickly pear extracts, mugwort, winged kelp (kelp with wings? seriously? but it’s omega packed with or without wings) and raspberry and tomato stem cells. I do raise a brow when plant stem cells are included in skin care for humans – they’d probably make a plant really pretty but I’ve a feeling this is more hype than reality when it’s used on people skins.
From my sample, I have no way to know what else is in it, but it really does do a great job at hydrating the skin while you sleep. My skin felt turbo-plumped and moisturised the next day – and you know, if it’s working, I’m not going worry about a few pointless ingredients dressing up the list.
Erno Laszlo has legions of (wealthy) fans – I don’t think you amass an army of dedicated customers unless you’re doing something right. The Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask launches into Harrods next month, but you want to browse the range, the site is HERE.
