After my success with my Naruko Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Lotion Dew I decided it was time to break out another Naruko product.

I’m a big fan of sleeping mask and overnight sleeping packs which work on skin overnight while you’re sleeping, as it’s really such a fuss free step to your skincare routine.

Ingredient list.

This is the first product of it’s kind which I’ve come across with a name like “Night Gelly”. This Marjoram and Lavender Classic Brightening Night Gelly is from the same range as the Brightening Lotion I was using, so I had high hopes for it.

The texture of the product is quite interesting – it’s a thick white gel which feels quite solid when you first dig into it, kinda like jelly. But once you spread it out, it absorbs quite well and is non-greasy. The jelly texture is quite light if you use the right amount. Too much, and it does tend to feel a slightly sticky and without leaving enough time for it to absorb, your hair might end up sticking to your face.

I use a spatula to scoop out a pea-size amount and it’s enough if I’m using this over moisturiser, but if I’m using it alone, I use a little bit more as it’s not the most hydrating sleeping mask I’ve tried. It is also lightly scented with lavender, which is soothing and calming for nighttime use.

I didn’t experience any significant brightening effect after using this for awhile, which was disappointing. It’s functional as a lightweight overnight sleeping mask, but don’t expect much effect in the brightening area.
