Lassie'el Night Miracle Sleeping Mango, Egg, Pearl and Avocado Packs review

Overnight face repair in fun packaging.

Lassie'el Night Miracle Mango, Egg, Pearl and Avocado Sleeping Packs review

It took me a while to become a fan of sleeping masks. The idea of leaving a face pack on overnight for hours on end did not appeal to me at first. I thought they would break me out - I have the kind of skin that breaks out on contact with air. It was my Mum, a sleeping mask addict, who told me that sleeping masks were like intensive moisturisers or skin repairing creams that you leave to sink in for a few hours. None of them is mattifying or anti-acne; the onus is on moisturising, which is what my flaky skin needs right now, thanks to dry weather and heavy anti-acne treatment. Plus, I liked the idea of not rinsing off the "goodness".
The Lassie'el (from Scot nickname for girl and Syrian father of gods - El) Night Miracle Sleeping Packs come in four variations: Mango (soothing), Egg (moisturising), Avocado (lifting) and Pearl (brightening). I've been using the egg and mango packs weekly for a month now; the brightening pack and the lifting pack are not my cup of tea.

Check out my review of the Lassie'el Night Miracle Mango, Egg, Pearl and Avocado Sleeping Packs.

Lassie'el is a Korean brand; they do have the most innovative skincare. These come in really fun packaging, with each pack shaped just like the prime ingredient. The pearl pack is shaped like an oyster! The packaging is intended to keep the product fresh and to prevent the extract from dissolving into the gel base and losing its potency.

There is a little spatula within the pack. Each capsule contains two blister-sides, with each blister containing enough product for two uses, so you get four uses out of each capsule. These come in boxes of four - see below.

Formula-wise, all the packs are paraben- and phenoxyethanol-free. There is no unpleasant smell. Each pack contains concentrated extract of the prime ingredient in a hydrating gel base; the Mango pack contains mango cream extract, the Egg pack contains yolks and white extract; the Pearl pack contains pearl extract while the Avocado pack contains avocado extract. The gel base is lightweight but not runny.

What you do with each of these is, mix the concentrate in the middle with the gel base until they are nicely blended and you cannot tell apart the base from the extract. Apply a thin layer to your cleansed face and neck, pat the product in with your palms and crash. It takes about 20 minutes for the mask to be fully absorbed. Do not rinse off; the pack will not leave any trace on the pillows.
