Our Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack is one of Sabbatical Beauty's OG products - one of the first Adeline has ever designed which continues to be a customer favorite because of how effective it is at comforting, brightening and anti-aging.
Deeply hydrating, moisturizing and brightening, this is a "sleeping pack" meant to be applied as the last stage of your evening routine, and washed off in the morning. This sleeping pack has fermented rice and sake extract as the second and third ingredients. Rice, and rice water, have been traditionally used in Asia to cleanse and brighten skin, and fermenting rice makes these properties more bioavailable.
Sake is another version of fermented rice, which doubles the power of these properties. This is further complemented by the high percentage of Rice Bran Oil, Rice Lipids and Quaternized Rice. The skin tone evening powers of this pack are also accentuated by the use of Niacinamide (5%) and N-Acetylglucosamine.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🍚Fermented Rice - Rice is used topically in Asia for its brightening and even skin tone properties. Fermenting the rice makes it more bioavailable, meaning your skin can better absorb and utilize its nutrients.
🍚Rice Lipids, Rice Bran Oil and Quartenized Rice - More types of rice in various forms so your skin gets the nutrition of different ways of extracting rice and its properties.
🍚Sake Extract - Asian cosmetic brands have capitalized on how sake has been a one of the most effective natural ingredients for anti-aging and brightening
🍚Bamboo Water - Introduced here in place of a silicone to improve the slip of the product. Bamboo also helps treat discoloration
🍚Niacinamide (vitamin B3) and N-acetyl Glucosamine - these two ingredients synergistically work together to improve brightening and fade discoloration

Hi Alexa, We are so happy to hear you've been loving Sake & Rice and happy that you're part of the Sabbatical Beauty family! -SB Team
I used this sleeping mask about two years ago very regularly, and it was one of the very few products I used that left me with a noticeable glow in the morning. I'm not sure if the formulation has changed, but when I began using it again last month, it made me break out really badly. I loved this product so I persisted for three weeks, trying to see if my skin would settle down. The first week I noticed I was getting more whiteheads and beginning to break out, so I took a break for a week, and when I went back to it after that, I broke out horribly all over my face and even neck. But I kept thinking it could be something else, so I tried it just on one part of my cheek, and since I broke out badly again there, I had to accept that this mask just doesn't work for my skin anymore. So I'm giving it two stars because it worked well for me in the past, and will probably work really well for other people, but I thought it was worth writing a review so others don't feel like they're crazy if they break out. I don't have sensitive skin at all and have never reacted to another product, for what it's worth.
Hi Erika, We are so sorry to hear that the Sake & Rice didn't work out for you. If you would like, please reach out to customer service at info@sabbaticalbeauty we would love to help you with an exchange!
I use this sleeping mask at least once a week, regardless of season. A little goes a long way! Since the pandemic, I stopped wearing make-up to hide my hyper pigmentation. This has helped fade my old acne and electrolysis scars. With the combination of other SB products, I have noticed a big change for the better in my skin's texture and appearance. My skin is smoother and brighter especially around my chin where most of my scars are located. And my marionette lines have reduced noticeably! I have been using my Travel Size for over a year. Remember, a little goes a long way! And it smells divine!
Hi Michele, We are elated to hear that you've been loving the Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review! - SB Team
I love all my Sabbatical beauty products and this product is no exception. It’s luxurious to put on your face at night!
I put a little sake and fermented rice sleeping pack on my hands. accidentally the first time, intentionally the second. My hands are looking like they’ve been pampered all their lives. In reality they have been very much abused. I use my hands for everything :) working with oil n turpentine and soil. And overwashed for patting dogs and grand babies. And I haven’t had a manicure in some decades. Oh I also use the pack on my face.🤣 and I love going to bed smelling of it. It leaves my skin feeling clean and supple at the same time. I love all my SB products. But this has to be the favourite.
