Bio-Essence Hydra Tri-Action Aqua Droplet Sleeping Beauty Mask
Despite its name, Bio-Essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Mask is not just a mask, and is not just for nighttime. Its an ULTRA light weight, deeply hydrating gel that can be used as a daytime plumping moisturiser as well as an overnight treatment mask. One loves a multi-tasking product!
Why do I need it?
If your skin is dehydrated – seriously, whose isn’t? – then you need this. Instant hydration, no stickiness, no greasiness. Smells gorgeous and feels gorgeous.
Bio-Essence Aqua Droplet Sleeping Mask has the most extraordinary texture. Think along these lines: if you could whip up water to a fluffy / airy / silky texture just like you can whip cream, but then have it melt on contact back into a fluid state that would instantly disappear into the depths of your skin, giving it the feeling of having downed a tall glass of water, then you might have something resembling this ‘mask.’
Apply thickly as the last step of your nighttime skincare routine as an intensely hydrating ‘overcoat’ for your skin. Apply lightly at the last step (before sunscreen) of your daytime skincare routine for bouncy hydrated skin that makeup applies smoothly to. No pilling!
I am loving this at nighttime over a treatment oil, which is currently Sunday Riley’s Luna. Luna needs to go on bare skin to work effectively and is lovely and nourishing, but doesn’t add any water (hydration) to my parched desert-climate skin. Add a final layer of Bio-Essence and its perfection.

Where do I get it? / Whats the damage?
Available worldwide from Cult Beauty | £29.00 for 80g
( Tip: if you live outside the EU, sales tax will be deducted before checkout. Buy 2 of theses and you qualify for free international shipping and luxury samples.)
I originally bought mine from Sasa.com which is why I’m holding a 50g version in the top image. Unfortunately Sasa don’t seem to be stocking the Tri-Action range from Bio-Essence anymore (gutted). If you are thinking of purchasing, its a good idea to double check Sasa’s availability as I bought 4x 50g in my last order for $19.80 each ($15US/£11.20)!
UPDATE 26 Sept 2016: Sasa has the Aqua Droplet Sleeping Mask back in stock for $25/50ml! Get it here.
