Dud Review 1: Mizon Good Night White Sleeping Mask

I absolute love the idea of doing dud review blog posts, sharing products that just didn't work for my skin. I have decided to adopt this post topic for my blog and of course Instagram. I will also mention dud products during my monthly reviews on my Youtube channel. I honestly believe in the saying "YMMV" (your milage may vary),  an acronym often used to highlight the fact that not every product will work for your skin type and concerns. There are many people out there that will purchase a particular product just because a well know blogger or YouTuber gave a glowing review. I have been guilty myself of doing the exact same thing...buying a product based on a review only to find out that it doesn't work for my skin. So here is my first dud post!

The Mizon Goodnight White Sleeping Mask is a favorite on the Reddit Asian Beauty Sub here so after seeing so many people speak highly of it, I decided to give it a try.

To start, my skin type during this time of the year is normal to combination. My skin can also be quite sensitive and temperamental. I am usually very acne prone however, with the incorporation of Curology, my skin has been less breakout prone. My review will reflect how this sleeping pack worked for my skin type and condition and as always, your results may vary.

The Claim:
This is said to be a moisturizing sleeping mask that helps brighten, leaving the skin radiant and more translucent. Marketed for those with hyper-pigmentation concerns, this is also suppose to help protect the skin from environmental stressors and irritation.

Patch Testing:
Every product I use goes through a very detailed patch testing period. I always patch test and I recommend patch testing to everyone. This is how I introduce new skin care products to my easily irritated skin. Patch testing can look different for everyone but for me, I test products in stages. I have had this mask now for almost a year and this has not caused any reactions, breakouts or irritation. 

I bought the tube version of this masks which is 50ml or 1.69 fl. oz.

Formula and Texture:
As you can see from the above picture, this mask is a slight milky gel texture that spreads easily and absorbs quickly. This does leave a slight tacky feeling if you use too much. This reminds me more of a primer because of the high amount of dimethicone.  The main ingredients include niacinamide, white mulberry root extract, hyaluronic acid and panthenine (a derivative of B5) and trehalose (a sugar used to moisturize). This does have a light lavender floral scent that I actually really enjoyed but the formula is just ok.

Full Ingredients:
Aqua, Cyclomethicone, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Trehalose, Glycerin, Alcohol, Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Polysorbate 20, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/vp Copolymer, Triethanolmaine, Carbomer, Sclerotium Gum, Broussonetia Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Pantethine, Placental Protein, Natto Gum, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Disodium Edta, Methyl Parabven, Propyl Paraben, Ci17200, Ci42090, Fragrance

If you cannot already tell by the title I did not enjoy this sleeping mask very much. I love the relaxing lavender scent and the amount of niacinamide but I just did not see any brightening from using this product. I also did not like the consistency as it felt like I was putting a foundation primer all over my face. I did notice some hydration but the level of moisturizing benefit was mediocre at best. As far as this protecting the skin, I am a firm believer that you should feed your skin with great ingredients, especially at night while are skin regenerates itself. This does create a shield or sorts but will nothing like metal armor but using this product will help your skin from evaporating moisture as you sleep.

I was pretty disappointing because I love the scent and the promise of brightening but it just did not deliver. I might recommend this to those with oily to very oily skin types or those looking for a product that offers light hydration. However, if you are sensitive to silicones beware. This was pretty cheap, around $4 dollars at RoseRoseshop here and free shipping so it's work trying if you are curious as it won't break the bank. I think overall Mizon is a good brand with some solid products however, this one was not my favorite. So unfortunately, I dub thee a dud product.

Stay Beautiful ❤️
