This is my second sleeping mask that I tried out. I wrote a post about sleeping masks and how they are different from night creams (please, read the following post Overnight sleeping mask or Night cream). Although I read a lot that people use sleeping masks almost every nigh, it is not advisable as sleeping mask was designed to be used 1 to 2 times a week (in case of very dry and dehydrated skin it is acceptable to use mask 3 times a week).
In this post I am going to review a wonderful sleeping mask with a very cute name.

Elizavecca’s Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack contains 50, 000 of collagen peptide, adenosine, bean fermentation extract, macadamia seed oil, hyaluronic acid and cacao extract and promises to increase skin collagen as well as substantially nourish skin and lock in moisture. Adenosine has anti-wrinkle benefits due to its ability to energize outer layer of the skin thus promoting smoother and younger appearance.
Mask comes in 100 mg container, small spatula provided to scoop small amount of mask out of the container. This way you do not need to use your fingers.
Mask has jelly-like consistency which is quite firm, mask is not runny. To be honest I was a bit freaked out with “piggy collagen” and jell like consistency and was hesitant to try this mask at first. I was afraid it would have some weird animal-like smell. Well, let me tell you – not at all. Mask smells amazing. It has very light pleasant fruity scent and overall smells very nice and fresh.
You do not need too much of the mask to cover your face and neck; only tip of the spatula needed (literally a pea size amount). Mask melts nicely into skin, it is rich but not sticky and oily at all.
How to use:
- Wash face following your usual cleaning routine
- Apply toner
- Apply serum (or any other essence) – this is optional
- Apply mask to face and neck. Leave overnight, wash off in the morning.
Deep wrinkles remain where they were the night before (and I am not sure it is ever possible to erase wrinkles with masks only), but I do notice that fine lines fade and become smoother. My skin is glowing in the morning, it looks fresh, nourished, rested, hydrated. I do recommend this mask to become a part of regular skin care routine.
Leave us a comment if you tried this mask or recommend any other sleeping mask of your liking.
