Aesop Sublime Replenishing Night Masque

1. A Unique Combination of Replenishing Vitamins
 
This is a vitamin rich, lightweight gel-cream containing generous doses of Vitamins B, C, E and F which replenishes those vitamins that are lost during a day of living. Travel, late nights, early starts…the reality of everyday life has such an effect on the skin – Aesop does not want you to have to compromise on your lifestyle in order to have healthy skin.
 
The product is a mix of the following vitamins:
  • Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) is known for its antioxidant properties, evening skin tone and appearance
  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E) offers effective fortification. 
  • Both skin- strengthening Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Panthenol (Provitamin B5) are renowned for their humectant and soothing properties
  • Linoleic and Linolenic Acid (Vitamin F) also help to support barrier integrity and relieve dryness.
2. Immediate & Sustained Hydration (film forming element)
 
As Aesop’s first masque developed specifically for overnight use, it confers both immediate and sustained hydration via humectant ingredients—Sodium Carrageenan and Saccharide Isomerate—that augments the skin’s barrier function, promoting moisture retention. This basically means that the mask, although applied as a cream, has film forming properties which create almost a sheet mask effect, trapping the nutrients and preventing the ingredients from leaving the skin overnight!
The film-forming and stabilising polymers work together to support the hydrating ingredients (Sodium Carrageenan and Saccharide Isomerate) and create a breathable yet perceptible film. The film created helps to keep in the moisture without blocking pores.
3. Apply at night 
 
This is Aesop’s first EVER night mask. The benefits of a night mask are simple – at night your skin’s barrier is down so it can absorb ingredients more easily! At nightime your body is at rest so you are making minimal movement (not touching your face or sweating etc) therefore nothing is happening to impede the performance of this highly efficacious vitamin rich formula.
This nourishing formulation offers sustained hydration with a soft, non-greasy finish, helping to replenish and strengthen the skin and even its texture & appearance! Suited to dry, dehydrated, dull, patchy or mature skin, the masque is formulated for use whenever boosted hydration is desired, and leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and nourished. After cleansing and toning, gently apply a generous amount to the face and neck; leave on overnight and rinse in the morning during routine cleansing.
