Most of the sleeping masks or overnight facial masks have oil in it, especially the ones we get in Indian market. I have always refrained from getting an overnight mask due to oils in it. My skin doesn’t go well with oil on a regular basis and overnight oil on face is a big no for me.

Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The product is housed in a SAN jar with white plastic lid. The overnight mask also has an inner lid to prevent spillage and prevent direct contact of mask with air. The overnight mask has gooey, not runny, very much like aloe gel. It gets applied nicely on the skin while allowing you to apply an uniform layer across the face. The overnight mask has a blueberry fragrance which feels very sweet. The mask is blue in colour, which feels bright in jar, faint once dispensed on palm or spoon. It has some air bubbles too. The overnight mask is like aloe gel, but if you try to apply a thick layer and massage it, it feels very sticky. The fragrance is quite lingering too while applying a thick layer.
My experience with Antheia Essentials Blueberry Overnight Hydrating Facial Mask
The mask has a sweet fragrance which is like blueberry, the colour is blue. I honestly feel the fragrance is nice and sweet. But if we apply a thick layer of mask, fragrance becomes overwhelming.
The mask is supposed to be applied in sufficient amount onto the face and left overnight. I do not use more than what I would normally use for a night cream for my oily skin. On one occasion I applied a thick layer on the face in the evening and kept it for one hour or so. If we try to apply a thick layer the mask becomes sticky and leaving it overnight becomes a task. So I either apply a thin layer to work as an overnight mask or apply a thick layer and wash off after an hour. The mask gets washed off easily when used as an overnight mask. Although since I apply a thin layer, nothing as such is left on the skin to wash off.
The mask sinks in nicely after applying a thin layer before hitting the bed. I like using it as an overnight mask as it makes my skin plump and soft in the morning. In short, I treat this mask as a sleeping mask by applying a thin layer and limit my usage to two times a week. If used as a normal mask, I use it once a week, it instantly makes the skin bright and hydrated. To gauge the brand claims of anti-ageing formula, increase in skin’s collagen growth and effectiveness, need some months of usage.
The fragrance and stickiness is a concern for me if I apply a thick layer. After applying a thick layer fragrance feels heavy and formula feels sticky. So we are unable to use it as a sleeping mask, which is how this overnight mask should be used ideally. My skin purges with Niacinamide and I did get one or two zits with some usages, which is nothing but Niacinamide bringing the clogged pores to the surface.

Antheia Essentials Blueberry Overnight Hydrating Facial Mask Review
The blueberry overnight hydrating mask acts as a sleeping mask as well as a normal mask. It gives a plump, hydrated and soft skin after each use. The blueberry extracts along with the other ingredients make up the anti-ageing formula of this mask. The overnight mask has some amazing humectants such as Glycerin, Niacinamide, Saccharide Isomerate, Sodium Hyaluronate which help in getting super hydrated skin. The fragrance and stickiness is a major concern for me, as after applying a thick layer fragrance feel heavy and formula feels sticky. The Formulation is good looking at the ingredients list, but addition of fragance in the product is a bit daunting. The product is totally free from oils and can be considered safe for fungal acne.
