Overnight masks have quickly gained momentum due to their ability to infuse your skin, lips, and even hair with moisture. At night, your skin takes a break from sunscreen and makeup, so the goal is to repair damage from things like stress, pollution, and the sun’s rays. Hydration is also key, as your skin loses even more water as you sleep.

Here are our favorites for skin and lips in a variety of price offerings. Slather and sleep away.
