The Cosrx Ultimate Honey Overnight Mask is one of my favorite sleeping masks, which I also sometimes use as a wash-off mask in the morning whenever I want a radiance boost. This mask contains 87% propolis extract, which is an antioxidant known for naturally restoring and maintaining skin structure. Propolis is different from honey, although it is also a bee-derived ingredient. Propolis is produced when bees collect tree sap and combine it with beeswax. Beekeepers then scrape off this resin-like substance from bee hives (without harming the bees!💕).
I feel like if you haven’t tried propolis yet for your skin, you are totally missing out. Propolis has numerous skincare benefits, which I instantly notice whenever I use propolis-containing skincare, such as this Cosrx mask and the Leegeehaam Vita Propolis sheet mask. Let me just enumerate below these skin benefits:
🐝Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral (which makes it a great ingredient for acne-prone skin)
🐝Anti-oxidant (prevents cellular damage caused by free radicals)
Whenever I use this Cosrx honey (or more accurately: propolis) mask, I wake up to soft, supple, and radiant skin. It claims to be a 3-in-1 product that can be used as a sleeping mask, wash-off mask, and moisturizer. I apply a thick layer when I want to use it as a mask, but only a thin layer when I use it as a night moisturizer. I love its gel-like consistency because no matter how thick a layer I apply, it never feels overwhelming. And the soothing effect can really be felt, especially when the air-con is on 😁 However, I only use it as a wash-off mask at daytime as it has a shiny finish that tends to be tacky when I apply too much. Though the brand claims it can also be used under makeup, I prefer not to because it’s not as lightweight as I prefer my daytime moisturizer to be.
This mask normally retails for PHP810 at local online stores, and for a 60mL tube that lasts a long time, I think that’s quite affordable.
