I always use sleeping masks when I feel like my skin is lacking something, I have different kinds of sleeping masks for different purposes and today I will talk about the Pumpkin Sleeping mask by Too Cool for School.

With pumpkin as an active ingredient enriched with nutrient-rich vitamin A and beta carotene for smooth, soft complexion. It also has naturally derived enzyme and various moisturizing botanical extracts such as aloe vera to leave the skin soft and clear.
Pumpkin as an active ingredient
Pumpkin is a wonderful ingredient for the health of your skin, it has tons of benefits.
Pumpking is great as an mild exfoliation, it has fruit enzymes and AHAS which helps the turnover of your skin to brighten it.
It also contains antioxidant vitamin A and vitamin C to boost collagen production for smoother skin and prevents the signs of aging.
Pumpkin seeds contains zinc which is wonderful for acne skin, zinc controls the oil production of your skin and heal your skin at the same time.
These properties are great to gently exfoliate, clear acne and prevent aging at the same time, leaving your skin brighter, softer and help with pigmentation.
The mask itself
First of all, the mask’s illustrations are so eyecatching. You know they say that yellow and orange are the colours that people remember and recognize the most from a far. Before I bought the mask, the packaging always hopped onto my mind when I think about sleeping masks and finally I bought it. It was not a bad decision, it was a great one.
The consistency of the mask is thick in gel form and very cooling. It has a good scent, I love the scent. It helps me sleep and it’s not too overpowering.
I remember the first time using the mask, I had really dry skin because I’ve just been overseas and the weather was killing my skin. This mask basically moisturized my skin so much during my sleep that the dryness was gone the morning after. I loved it! My skin was much softer and smoother!
It also sinks into my skin so fast that it doesn’t feel sticky and annoying when I sleep. Some masks are so moisturized that it feels sticky and you just wipe it all off when you sleep on your side, which is very annoying in my opinion.
In Sweden, this mask is everywhere now but when I bought it, it was only available on Lyko.
I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with dry skin, wants to gently exfoliate their skin when they sleep to wake up to glowy, soft and smooth skin. It is also huge for it’s value so you won’t regret it!
I will give it 5⭐️!
