While I'm not especially keen on wearing makeup, I am a very big facial masks and treatments. In fact I probably own more masks than lipsticks and use them whenever I can to bolster my skincare routine. Sleeping masks have been integral to my regimen for awhile. I'm big on sleep and using the natural repair cycle of sleep to work on my skin.  When I picked up the Allies of Skin Bright Future Sleeping Facial  and is was intrigued by Allies of Skin’s 1A All-Day Mask, an innovative daytime facial mask can be worn under makeup and sun protection that shields skin from pollution and continuously delivers benefits all day long.

The Packaging
Allies of Skin Bright Future Sleeping Facial is packaged in a sleek freestanding silver tube with a cap and a metal pump dispenser for hygienic and easy dispensing.

How To Use
This product should be used following cleansing, toning in the evening. Apply 3-6 pumps on to face, avoiding eye area. Do not rinse off. Recommended usage is 2-3 nights in a row to maintain a healthy glow.

My Experience
Allies of Skin Bright Future Overnight Facial is golden yellow in color with a gel meets lotion consistency. It has a barely there citrus scent and the product sinks in easily to the skin with a slightly cooling feel. When I use this, I apply it an hour before bed as a sleeping mask. The instructions says to use it two to three nights in a row for maximum efficacy as the cumulative effects will help skin to attain its optimal level of exfoliation. The first time I used it, I noticed my skin was noticeably smoother and softer this next morning. After the next two applications, my skin definitely had clarity, brightness and that post facial smoothness and glow. All of this without any redness, irritation or dryness.

I've used this product for over two months now and I still marvel at the results. My skin not only looks amazing but it feels more balanced as well. It was a total skin saver after I had my brows microbladed and couldn't wash my face for a week. My skin was looking dull and this absolutely revived it.  The packaging which is practical, hygienic and mess free is a win as well. I've tried many peel type products over the years and this by far is the best in terms of results and it's virtually effortless to use. Yes it's pricey but I'd happily give up all of my other sleeping masks and just use this one. That's how much I like it. I'm actually going to finish up all the others and stick with this. I'm just sad I can't use it more often because of how well it improves the appearance of my skin. I had an actual facial recently and the aesthetician was complimenting my skin for not having any texture and I'm pretty sure this mask is a factor.

The Packaging
Allies of Skin1A All–Day Mask is packaged in a sleek, stand up, opaque black tube with a cap and a plastic pump dispenser for hygienic and easy dispensing.

How To Use
This product should be used in the daytime following cleansing, toning and serum.  Apply all over face and neck. Sunscreen and/or makeup can be applied on top if desired. If using a facial oil, this product can mixed with mix a few drops of the oil with this daily treatment and applied in one step.

My Experience
Allies of Skin 1A All-Day Mask is white in color with the texture of a creamy lotion. It has a minimal non-descript scent and the lightweight product absorbs easily with a finish somewhere between matte and satin. I've been using it as my day moisturizer and at first I had concerns that it might not be moisturizing enough but with my skin properly prepped, that has never been an issue. This wears well under sun protection and makeup. The time release formulation keeps my skin hydrated, plump and dewy all day long and I like knowing that my face is being shielded from environmental stressors and pollution. This is a really nice product formulated with solid targeted ingredients and it does what it says.

I have a real concern about the impact of pollution on my skin because I live in a bustling metropolis and also because of the overall shifts in our environment. Toxic  air, smog, fine particulate matter (minuscule particles of soot and dirt) can lead to premature visible signs of aging as well as  exacerbating existing skin conditions such as eczema and hives. The only way to really avoid pollution is by never going outside which is not really possible for anyone. So I'm being proactive by using a skincare product that protects against these factors. As much as I like the 1A All-Day Mask, I can't say I love it like I love the Bright Future Sleeping Facial. There are more anti-pollution products in the market that I'd like to explore like the Allies of Skin Molecular Multi Nutrient Day Cream which provides similar protection along with a defense against HEV (high energy visible) blue light which anyone who works in front of a computer screen or uses their phone often should be concerned about. There is also a reformulated version of this product called the Allies of Skin 1A All-Day Pollution Repair Mask.

I tend to be highly practical when it comes to the choices I make with my skincare. I'm driven less by price and more by results. I'm a fan of the brand ethos and chirally correct approach of Allies of Skin. More importantly I'm really impressed with these products especially the Bright Future Sleeping Facial for how effortless it is to use and the continual visible results. Allies of Skin Bright Future Sleeping Facial and Allies of Skin1A All–Day Pollution Repair Mask can be purchased from AmazonDermstore, Cult Beauty, Space NK. and Net-A-Porter.

I haven not tried the brand, but your review catapulted them right to the top of my wish list. Although you prefer the night version, I am most intrigued by the Day Leave On Mask - such a lovely list of ingredients!

For the first time I heard for this brand I already love these masks and think that I need them in my life. I also adore face masks and treatments and always searching for new ones to try them. Your post is so informative and I would definitely check this products. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the introduction and how cool that this is a Singaporean based brand. The molecular nutrient cream sounds really interesting. The sleeping facial sounds good. I'll have to look out for it.

Emmylou said...

Oh wow! Just by looking at the ingredients of these two, you can tell they're good quality! I especially love the sound of that Sleeping Facial, chingu! I know how discerning you are with skin care products so this one is a sure winner:) Thanks for the review::)

Ivana Split said...

I haven't tried these two products but the ingredients list is certainly impressive. Allies of Skin sounds like a great brand. They sound like true friends of the skin indeed. I love that you've been using these products for two months and still marvel at how effective they are. It's great they keep your skin happy and looking good! I imagine that not being able to wash your face for a week after microblading must have been stressful so it is great you had this mask to rely on. I'm sure it was a real life saver. What you said about skin and sleep really resonates with me. I've been suffering with insomnia this summer and it really took its toll on my skin, my face looks so tired these days. A good night sleep does wonders for our skin. A balance of good rest, skin care and healthy living is the best way to keep one's skin looking its best. I agree with you about the importance of investing into skincare. I would rather spend money on skin care than on make up. No amount of make up can make one's skin look really healthy.

I need to try the sleep mask... sounds so interesting!

I love masks too. My favourite is the goddess clay mask from Charlotte Tilbury. I use that once a week but been wanting to introduce another one into my routine, more like a sleep mask but so unsure about them. Like how it all works etc. I might look into Allies of Skin. The sleep mask sounds like a great starting point and one that you can use twice weekly too. Plus I am a sucker for anything anti-aging these days now too.

It looks great - I wish to try them :-)

Hena Tayeb said...

Sounds like great products.. but way out of my price range. Good to hear they work so well.

Jenny said...

I've always been curious about this brand, especially with their impressive ingredient list! Between the two I'm curious to try the all-day mask, as I've never tried anything like that before and it sounds like one I'd really enjoy!

It looks so good

I haven't heard of this brand before, but this product intrigues me. I'd love to try this product out, but I wish they had a slightly cheaper travel size version.

I never heard of this brand until now, I'm curious will love to try it out I agree look for result on product not the price.

Mai Nguyen said...

I haven't heard of this brand, but I'm glad they're working well for you. You mentioned microblading your eyebrows -- are you planning on making a post on your experience in the future? I've been toying around with the idea of whether I should get my eyebrows done.
