My Sake & Rice Sleeping Pack is one of my OG products - one of the first I 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

I was intrigued by the product description for this mask and decided to try it for deep skin hydration at bedtime. I like the idea of giving my face some extra pampering at the end of the day/before the next day starts. It feels great going on and, in the morning, it has clearly absorbed in. My face is less puffy than it used to be.
The thing that I love the most, however, is the fragrance. It reminds me of a beloved relative from my childhood who had a nightly beauty routine. Her bedroom smelled like this. So each night I give myself a delicious massage as I apply the mask, I give my face extra loving care, I think about my Granny and smile for all three.
My friend introduced me to this brand and I was instantly obsessed. This cream feels so luxurious and it really helps to hydrate and I feel when it actually sets into my skin, it’s dreamy! It’s a must have during the cold weather months.
After getting really dry angry winter skin last year, this sleeping pack is amazing. It works so well for me that I'm writing a review before my full size version arrives! I have very sensitive combination skin, which can be oily and dry at once especially in the winter, but this product is a dream. I wake up with soft skin, and after a couple weeks it seems to be calming my skin texture and discoloration as well. It feels like I am putting my skin to sleep at night so it can rest and heal! I would absolutely recommend this product. The sample size lasted me about three weeks with nightly use--you don't need a lot to make a big impact!
I love the smell of this sleeping cream and also the thick, luxurious feel. Leaves me skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
I ordered the full size after ordering and being happy with the travel size. Usually at this time of year I have stubborn dry patches and redness, but using this product every night seems to have prevented that from occurring. I use it as the last step in my nightly routine, and it feels and smells heavenly. It’s such a treat to wake up with glowing skin. I think it has evened out my skin although I started using a couple of other SB products at the same time so I can’t be sure what did it!
