There's likely a sleeping mask out there suited to your exact skin concerns, and for those dreaming of reducing redness and signs of aging, shoppers have found the solution in Cocokind's $22 Resurfacing Mask.
Created with bakuchiol, a gentler retinol alternative that's become increasingly popular in skincare products—from creams to serums to moisturizers—the mask can alleviate a number of skin issues, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Intended to be used nightly up to four times a week, it can even give noticeable results after just one use, according to multiple customers. "The first morning, I was amazed," one wrote. "My skin looks like I'm in my 20s, not almost 40."

Shuting Hu, PhD, cosmetic scientist and founder of Acaderma, told InStyle that bakuchiol can provide similar anti-aging benefits as retinol without the risk of irritation, making this mask a great option for those with sensitive skin. "Bakuchiol [is] a sustainable and ethically sourced plant-derived alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol is an ancient ingredient that comes from the babchi plant, which is native to India."
"In addition to its benefits as an antioxidant, bakuchiol also improves skin elasticity by stimulating collagen production and helps target fine lines, uneven skin tone, and spots," Hu added.
As for the Cocokind mask, it's become a nighttime staple among many users, one of which said they "woke up with baby skin." Another said they "struck gold" with this product, writing: "I seriously started crying one morning after I looked in the mirror and saw how much work it does overnight to your skin."
Others also reported fast results, including one person that shared, "I wake up in the morning with soft skin, and the wrinkles in between my eyebrows and on my forehead are minimized."
