Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Sleeping Pack Review

When I first started getting into kbeauty, the absence of day/night cream categories blew my mind. I was so used to the very short routines of the West - cleanse, then day cream or night cream. And yet there is something just for nights in Korean skincare - sleeping packs! And I really like trying new ones.
The mask promises to nourish the skin while you sleep and provide a natural glow. The marketing materials also recommend it during sunburn recovery, but I personally would not put anything with fragrance on a compromised skin barrier.
The star ingredients of the mask are portulaca oleracea extract (purslane), propolis, niacinamide, honey extract, royal jelly, panthenol, squalane, and ceramide. A full list is available at the end of the review. This combination of soothing and nourishing components can be wonderful for dry or dehydrated skin but can be used by all skin types. Niacinamide is a popular ingredient for improving skin tone and pigmentation.
How to use:
Spread over the face after moisturizer
For oily skin, leave on for 20-30 mins, then rinse with warm water
For dry skin, leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning
The package has 10 individual pods with the mask inside. The product has a gel texture but is much more nourishing than any gel creams I’ve tried. There’s a pleasant scent that’s not overly strong.
My skin is combination with some oily and some dry zones. I have conflicting feelings about this mask. I personally use it instead of moisturizer at night, not in addition to one. And rinsing off what’s essentially my whole evening routine seems wasteful, so I just leave the mask on overnight. I could use it as a wash-off mask after cleansing, then proceed with the rest of the routine, but I didn’t think of that until just now. Whoopsie.
The individual packs are really cute and convenient, especially for travel, but they also have a lot more product than I need for a single use. I spread it all over the face, neck, and chest, but could easily get away with only using half of the pod. My face is definitely sticky afterwards, and still sticky in the morning. Someone with very dry skin may find this to be exactly what they need.
The sleeping pack does plump up my skin. After rinsing it off, the face feels really soft and smooth, and my usual morning items like vitamin C and SPF glide on effortlessly. Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Sleeping Pack is definitely not a bad product, but I’m going to save the rest of the pods for the Fall and Winter months when my skin needs extra nourishment and care.
