Brand Isntree has been an emerging brand of the year 2019. I very recently tried two of their products and utterly loved them, one is the Isntree 8% AHA Essence and the other one is the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask, and I will be reviewing this Sleeping mask in this Post. Yeah, I have already spilled the beans.
Initially, I was not very excited to use it and was not expecting a lot from the product because of the consistency, but when I saw that the product has 5 different kinds of Hyaluronic acid, this intrigued me a lot.
The mask claims that (as from the declaration from the brand website):
- With its 5 kinds of Hyaluronic acid, it replenishes the moisture in the skin. (that is, it helps in attracting moisture to the skin).
- The Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) of Betaine and Ceramide NP of the skin holds the skin tight for a healthy complexion that prevents moisture from evaporating. (that is, these ingredients prevent moisture loss and maintain skin barrier)
The Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask is suitable for all skin types and for all seasons to tame skin dehydration.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
The Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask contains all the amazing ingredients. The ones I have marked in green are the famous and my favourite skin calming, moisture retaining and barrier improving ingredients.
The ones marked in blue are the different molecular-sized hyaluronic acid used by them. When Hyaluronic acid of different molecular sizes is used in a product, they are able to reach a deeper level of the skin promoting collagen formation and plumping skin.
How to use:
Since this is a sleeping mask, the ideal way will be to use it at the last step after doing your entire skincare routine, which is after using your usual face cream.
But for dry skin and combination skin, during the winter season and dry summer, the best way will be to use this Hyaluronic Acid water sleeping mask before the usual thick moisturiser. Why? Because otherwise, on dry skin in dry weather conditions, the reverse process will start and might cause further dehydration on already dehydrated skin.
The hyaluronic acid needs something in its surroundings from where it can draw the waster on the skin and in case of dry skin, the additional barrier of moisture is also needed to retain this moisture in the skin.
Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask comes in a squeezable translucent blue tube with a sturdy flip on the cap.
Expiry: 6 months after opening.

Consistency/ Texture / fragrance / Absorbability:
Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask has a frozen jelly-like consistency, the gel is very viscous in comparison to the conventional gels. The product doesn’t have any fragrance.
Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Water Sleeping Mask is the unique kind of product, I have never tested anything like this… Well, I almost wrote it as a tasted! LOL! Like I have mentioned above, I have been using it before my thick moisturiser as a skin hydrating and plumping effect product. It didn’t disappoint me at all.
To be honest, when I saw that this product is a gel (from outside the tube) I thought this will turn out to be a big fail in this early winter and I better save it for summer, but god bless my brain, I decided to open and test it. I have been using it for the past 3 weeks and now I can share my opinion. BTW the product already won me over just after using it for a week, but I still held my horses tight.
- Very hydrating product.
- It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy.

- The product is 100% oil-free.
