I love face masks and moisturizers, but both in one? Win-win!!
Sleeping packs are face masks that you can use overnight, when you sleep! No, it doesn’t dry out after a few minutes like regular face masks. So what’s the difference? Sleeping masks are more like night creams, just a tad thicker and gives you exponential benefits compared to night creams. So it’s really a beauty superfood!
After falling in love with Kicho Sheep Oil Cream, I have lately been trying Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack, the much raved about product in the Korean beauty world!
Housed in the beautiful floral gift box, Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack comes with a beautiful golden brush applicator as well. The white floral box is completely reusable and I have already decided to use it as a shelf divider in my makeup storage drawer. I’d rather not talk about the pretty packaging because I really won’t stop! The colorful floral box makes the PERFECT gift for the beauty lover girl friend/sister.
Coupling vitamin and antioxidant rich ingredients with the restoring power of sleep, this pack brings that youthful lift and glow back to your skin just overnight. Apply using the silky brush for a perfectly even layer of the light, cool custard-like pack. You can even use the brush for facial massaging. Let the lanolin seal rosewater, hyaluronic acid, green tea and black ginseng into your skin, allowing it to absorb for a boost in skin health while you sleep. That means no rinsing till you wake up in the morning. So fall asleep to the evening garden scents of flowering rose.
How to use:
Use up to 3 – 4 times a week in the evening after cleansing and toning in lieu of a moisturizer. Apply by adding a dime size amount of product onto forehead, cheeks and chin. Using the brush, apply an even layer over your face. Rinse off in the morning.

You get 100ml of goodness in the white tube with golden cap. I imagined the product to have a gel-like consistency, but this one has more of a thick creamy consistency.
I use a pea sized amount to cover my entire face. I’m a bit stingy and I don’t use it on my neck, but I highly recommend using it on the neck as well.
I take the product on the tip of the brush and gently smooth it all over my face, trying not to go over the same spot too many times. The off-white cream takes about a minute to get fully absorbed into the skin. The brush makes the application much more easier and I love how soft the bristles are! The brush applies a thin layer of the product evenly on the face. However I also like applying the product using my finger tips and this way I can massage the product into my skin.
The product smells slightly floral but the smell vanishes once it gets absorbed into the skin. It also doesn’t leave any sort of tacky feel but the skin feels somewhat satiny to the touch! I’m happy that the product doesn’t stain the brush like some masks do. This brush is perfect for applying regular masks as well.
I’ve been using it thrice a week for just over two weeks now and I haven’t found a visible difference on my skin. But I am impressed with most ingredients and I guess the results are more of a long term effect unlike what the claims say. The product has neither broken me out nor irritated my skin thankfully which I’m extremely happy about.
Kicho Camelia Sleeping Pack retails for USD53 and can be purchased here.
