Dior Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask
My first ever experience of a ‘sleeping mask’ was Laneige Water Sleeping Pack with a texture and concept that I’d never come across before. What I found with that product was that although I loved the coolness and lightness of the water-feel of it, it wasn’t as hydrating as I’d expected it to be. My understanding of sleeping masks is that they provide more hydration than a night cream, for example, and behave more like an intensive mask. Of course, you couldn’t sleep in a traditional mask (pillow case carnage) and I think you have to take the ‘mask’ aspect with a pinch of salt.
However, Dior Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask is one of those deliciously wet creams that feels cooling, there is more ‘slip’ in this than other similar products and my skin had a definite silky feel to it by morning although not the same moisture feel as if I’d used a skin oil. I love Dior for makeup but don’t often venture into their skincare, so I feel impressed by this because it is better than other sleeping masks I’ve tried. Dior claim a higher percentage of mallow extract than other products and that’s an ingredient noted for its soothing properties in sensitive skin. Dior does like to use fragrance in their products so sensitivity soothing may well be off-set if you react to fragrances.
At £52 HERE, you’d expect it to be working at the top of the sleeping mask game, and it is, but if you need a big bolt of moisture overnight, it’s not for you. If you don’t need that huge surge, and it’s not outside of budget, then I found it an absolute pleasure to use.
