Thrive Causemetics Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask
Recently I bought the Thrive Causemetics Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask, along with a ton of other products from Thrive because I wanted to see if anything from the brand lived up to the hype. What drew me to buying this mask in particular is the ingredients. It has a bunch of ingredients my skin loves like Hyaluronic Acid, Licorice Root, Melatonin, Glycolic Acid, Vegan Lactic Acid, Vitamin C, Rosehip Seed Oil, Aloe Leaf Extract, and Squalane. However, and much to my disappointment, the only one of those in the first five ingredients is squalane.

Where to Buy
Thrive Causemetics claims that this mask will transform your dull, dehydrated and uneven skin to make it smoother, brighter and more hydrated. It’s also supposed to make your skin glow, as well as improving elasticity and firmness. I’ve used it for about a month now and have some thoughts on it.
How to Use the Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask
Thrive Causemetics recommends using this mask in multiple ways, both as a daytime treatment mask to prep the skin for makeup and as an overnight sleep mask. They also recommend:
- If you have oily skin, use it as a moisturizer.
- If you have dry skin, apply over another moisturizer.
- If you have normal skin, use it as the last step in your skincare routine.
- As a skincare prep before makeup application, apply a thin layer to the face and massage it in. Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse off.
- Apply to face, neck, décolleté and hands.
Thrive Causemetics Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask Review
First and foremost I want to point out it’s a product with lavender oil in it and it doesn’t make me break out. That’s a rarity. This mask has been very gentle on my sensitive skin. The Overnight Sensation mask has a cooling, almost minty feel when first applied. It gives your skin a pearly appearance when worn. I love that it has time released hyaluronic acid to add moisture into my dry skin.
Now, I’ve used this overnight sleep mask for a while and what I’ve noticed with it is that it does noticeably brighten my skin and make it appear smoother. It does help with hydration, but I prefer to ‘seal it in’ with Good Molecules Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil. I haven’t felt like I’ve seen an improvement in elasticity or firmness from it. My 40 year old skin could use that!
When comparing this mask to other cruelty-free overnight sleep masks, it seems more reasonably priced than I first realized at $62 for 3.4 fl. oz. The Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial is $46 for 1.35 oz. The e.l.f. Moisturizing Sleep Mask is $12 for 1.16 oz. The Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Mask is $15 for 1.7 oz. The Nyakio Chamomile Soothing Sleep Mask is $35 for 4 oz. (I’ll probably try the Nyakio one next.)
However, I still feel like this sleep mask pricier than I like, especially considering I haven’t really seen any improvement in elasticity or firmness. While I am really enjoying the Thrive Causemetics Overnight Sensation Brightening Sleep Mask and I will definitely finish this tube, I’m not sure if I will repurchase or not. I’d repurchase it on sale, but definitely not pay full price.
