Why You Need an Overnight Mask Even If You Don’t Have Dry Skin
Overnight masks are nothing new, but they've gotten exponentially more popular in the past few months. In fact, our resident Asian skincare experts predicted they would be the next BB cream back in May—and they were right. But here’s the thing: Unlike BB creams, they’re not exactly universally beneficial. Marketed as life-savers for those with super-dry skin, they promise to help you wake up glowy and dewy—which makes them seem superfluous for those who are more worried about wrinkles or oil control. But that’s where you’re wrong—the new generation of overnight masks do much more than hydrate and are packed with brightening, smoothing, and firming ingredients. Because everyone deserves to get good skin in their sleep.

AmorePacific Moisture Bound Sleeping Recover Mask ($60)
One of Korea’s most popular skincare lines, AmorePacific created a light and luxurious overnight mask that features a potent blend of Asian botanicals. Plus, it’s made with stabilised bamboo sap instead of water, which helps seal all of the ingredients and moisture into your skin.
The mask’s soufflé-like texture goes on lightly and instantly melts into your skin. Ingredients like vitamin C and wild rose oil help brighten, tighten, and fix uneven skintone.

Though not marketed as an overnight mask, we heard from the brand firsthand that slathering this on before bed will ensure you wake up with plump, radiant skin. Made with black rose extract, vitamin E, shea butter, and more, this botanical-based mask help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles overnight.
