If you a skincare enthusiast or into skincare like me , you would know how big of a deal Vitamin C is in the whole Skincare industry . And why ? Vitamin C is an antioxidant , meaning it protects your skin from free radicals which damages your skin. Therefore it helps in reducing hyper pigmentation , brown spots , sun spots by evening and brightening your skin tone ! Sounds so good right ? Therefore each one of us, should invest in good vitamin C – whether be it sleeping mask or a serum.

Dot and key has always nailed it with their packaging. This product comes in a glass container, so don’t you dare drop it! The container is aesthetic, pot-shaped and clear. So, you can keep an eye on the content. It also comes with a spatula which is really helpful for scooping out the products. I personally find it really hygienic that way.
My Thoughts :
The sleeping mask is a water based moisturizer . It is pastel yellow in colour and has a strong floral fragrance to it,which gradually disappears after applying . Mostly all Dot and Key Products have a strong fragrance, which I wish they weren’t. People who are sensitive to fragrance might not like it. It is very light weighted. After applying , it does feel sticky for the first 3-5 mins and then it gives a matte like effect. Since it is a sleeping mask , it is supposed to be applied after serum & Moisturizer. It is basically a second moisturizer for your skin.
About the claims , it does makes your skin glow overnight. The next morning , I do have a radiant , glowing and a very soft skin . But the thing is , it’s temporary. It wont last through out the day. And since it’s a mask , you aren’t supposed to apply it daily ( 2-3x max /week only ) . Even through regular use every week, I didn’t see any visible difference in lightening of my dark spots or acne marks, which a Vitamin C mask should do.

Will I recommend ?
If you are looking for Vitamin C ( as a active ingredient ) to reduce your dark spots or pigmentation and get a glowing skin , I typically would not recommend you this . It’s better if you go for a serum. But if you are looking for a sleeping mask , which will hydrate as well as give a soft and glowing skin when used ( one time thing ) , this is perfect . It also will suit all skin type. Oily skin may not use any moisturizer underneath this in summers but in winter one may need. However , for Normal to Dry skin people , you will need a moisturizer underneath this .
MY RATING : 3.8/5
- Cruelty free
- Doesn’t cause irritation
- Makes your skin Radiant and glowing
- Makes your skin very soft.
- Hydrates well.
- Moisturizes well ( if used with a moisturizer )
- Not too moisturizing /hydrating for very dry skin.
- Sensitive people may not like the fragrance
- % of Vitamin C is not mentioned.
- Doesn’t reduce dark spots even with regular use.
