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 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.

Nice but got duped on the size
I fell in love with this cream when my daughter gifted me a sample last summer, so I splurged and bought the full size (then, 2.3 ounces) in the fall. When I ran out, I placed a double order in November, only to find that this time my jars were smaller!! Very disappointed that Sabbatical would decrease the size to 2 ounces but still charge the same price without letting customers know. Hence the 3 stars. Definitely makes me second guess purchasing again.
Hi A.A. we are sorry to hear that you are unhappy because of the change in the full sizes. This is actually something we had to implement site wide because of COVID supply shortages and increasing costs throughout the industry. We have switched all our jar full sizes from 2.3 oz to 2 oz because of container shortages and kept pricing the same because of widespread supplier increases. We however have also increased the volume of some jar products from 1 oz to 2 oz (like Glow Pressed Serum), often without any price increase or a negligible one as a service to our customers.
We are sorry that you have not been happy with the change, but unfortunately this is a global issue which we have little control over, and that we are trying to do our best to mitigate with our limited resources. Thank you for reading.
The first time I used this I was nervous it was going to be too thick for my skin. When I woke up in the morning it all soaked in and my skin was so soft

A fun, nightly treat
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.
