the retinol alternative you’ve been waiting for

the retinol alternative you’ve been waiting for

Get your mask on, catch some Zzs, and wake up with renewed skin. Our resurfacing sleep mask centers around bakuchiol, which is derived from the seeds of the babchi plant, and has been a staple in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.

It's essentially a plant-derived retinol alternative; it helps smooth skin, soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and brighten the appearance of dark spots and discoloration, leaving skin bright, even, and youthful-looking.

Basically, it’s time to kiss your harsh, barrier-stripping retinols goodbye!

Our formula also uses wild indigo extract to activate your skin’s natural anti-stress functions and diminish visible signs of fatigue in the skin, especially due to stress - we’re talking dark circles, surface redness, and dullness. 

Finally, beta-glucan locks in hydration and supports your skin’s barrier function, which also helps reduce surface dryness and sensitivity.

Over time, this gentle cocktail of brightening, hydrating, and firming actives leaves your skin even, smooth, and glowing. And it does all of this while you sleep. 

here’s what else is in it:  

water

Good ol’ H2O serves as the liquid base of this mask, acting as a solvent and improving our formula’s texture and spreadability.

glycerin

This plant-derived, soy-free humectant draws in moisture and retains it in the skin. 

cucumber water

Moisturizing cucumber water offers a soothing cooling effect as well as a light, refreshing aroma.

glyceryl stearates

This plant-derived mixture of glycerin and stearic acid, which can be found naturally in the human body, helps stabilize our formula, reduce evaporation, and allow our mask to offer a residue-free rinse-off. 

radish root ferment

Derived from radishes fermented with the same lactic acid used to make Korean kimchi, this natural preservative helps prevent microbial growth in our formula.

squalane

This plant-derived compound, which is naturally produced by glands in the skin, helps condition and nourish. 

cellulose

Commonly found in plants and algae, this compound helps thicken and improve the texture of our formula.

baobab oil

This antioxidant-packed emollient helps support your skin’s elasticity, promoting a supple, plumped look and feel. It’s also rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, and vitamin A.

jojoba seed oil

Jojoba seed oil helps balance excess oil in the skin while also nourishing and soothing. 

caramel

Instead of using artificial, synthetic colorants, our formula uses caramel. Made by heating sugar, which acts as a natural humectant, caramel gives our mask its soft, warm color.

sodium dehydroacetate

This gentle, baby-safe preservative helps prevent bacterial and fungal growth. 

citric acid

This natural alpha hydroxy acid helps adjust the pH of our formula.

how to use

At night, after cleansing, toning, and spritzing our glow essence, apply an even layer of mask to clean skin, keeping clear of eyes and lips. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning. Use up to 3-4 times a week, Enjoy!

I love this mask. I just wish it had more organic ingredients.

@Bre @Heather @Colleen @Kiki – hi! We recommend using treatments with strong active ingredients on nights that you aren’t using resurfacing sleep mask, to avoid overwhelming your skin!

cocokind

Hi! Can this mask be used on top of a benzoyl peroxide cream? Or should they be used in different nights?

Bre S.

Hi I was wondering since Cocokind is a retinol alternative would it be okay to use after Microneedling?

Heather Stanley

Hi there!, just got your resurfacing mask from ipsy and very excited to try it! But was wondering, i use Sunday Riley’s good gene’s lactic acid treatment every night and was wondering if I could layer this on top before I got to bed of course spaced apart in thinking? Thank you!
