Review: Dr. Jart Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask (Sleeping Beauty?)

When you haven’t actually gotten a full nights rest, sometimes products like Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask can really help save the day.

For nights you’re planning on (or not planning on) skimping on actual beauty sleep, the Hydro Sleep Mask can help you do the job without logging any actual hours.

Designed as a gentle treatment that’s safe for even the most sensitive skin types, the Sleep Mask helps hydrate and detoxify the skin overnight, without leaving behind any residue or feeling greasy or sticky on the skin.

When you wake up in the morning, you’re left with a glowing, radiant, and refreshed appearance, and nobody has to know if you slept for 8 hours… or if you did decide to attend that party at the last minute.

Before we begin, make sure you’re ordering Dr. Jart from a legitimate retailer, NOT from a counterfeit seller. For your convenience, here is the Amazon link to an authentic Dr. Jart retailer.

Filled with minerals and nutrients, the overnight sleeping mask is an anti-aging treatment that helps treat signs of dull skin, wrinkles, loss of firmness, and seals and binds in moisture into the skin, all while you’re sleeping. So you can wake up and put your best face forward.

Is Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask worth it? We reviewed to find out.

Review: Dr. Jart Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask

Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask is a 50g overnight face and neck treatment that can be used daily after your regular nighttime routine (serum, moisturizer, etc.).

Safe for all skin types (including acne-prone, dry, oily, and sensitive), you sleep with a generous layer of product on and remove it with warm water or a hot towel in the morning. Upon removing the product in the AM, even with first time use, my skin was very bright, radiant, clear, clean, and felt incredibly soft and hydrated. The night before I went to sleep feeling dry and dull.

Over time with continual use, the Hydro Sleep Mask is also an anti-aging treatment, so you’ll start to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of sun damage decreasing on the face as you keep using the product (this only takes a couple of weeks, and it actually does make a visible difference).

On nights you haven’t actually gotten those full 8 hours of beauty sleep, or if you’ve had a long or stressful week, this is a perfect treatment to toss on to “cover up” any signs of damage, and it also helps create a barrier on the skin to prevent future damage, that lasts throughout the day.

The Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask is the type of product you use a few times and notice (and feel) such a change in your skin that you want to keep touching your face throughout the day and when you wake up…. but you resist the urge to potentially undo the damage.

While it is an investment product, I found it was worth every penny due to how my skin looked and felt, and even found myself receiving compliments on my skin after use that were not expected.

In terms of anti-aging and hydrating treatments and overnight masks, this is definitely one of the top products on the market, and I would recommend it as one of those simple luxuries we all deserve now and again for every fan of skincare products.

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask Pros & Cons

Overall, this is definitely one of the best overnight facial treatments with the best benefits I have found on the market in comparison to competitor products. It helped really moisturize my face upon waking up, and there was a visible boost in brightness, firmness, and elasticity. It’s also perfect for anyone suffering from dull or uneven skin texture or tone. With that said, the main downside is in the price point, which is relatively steep for a mask treatment used once per night. That said, it’s still comparable to many serums and anti-aging treatments in terms of benefits and use, and really works- even if you haven’t gotten “real” beauty rest.

Here is a look at some main pros and cons of Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask prior to purchase:


  • Anti-aging benefits: as you use the overnight Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask over time, you start to notice the amount of fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage start to disappear (I noticed fine lines around my forehead start to diminish in appearance very quickly with the use of the mask nightly)
  • Cruelty-free company: company does not test their products on any animals, use any animal products during any of their formulations, or during any of their manufacturing processes
  • Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask is safe for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin
  • The product is free of all parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, and harsh chemical binding agents
  • The sleep mask enhances hydration levels overnight while helping to remove any impurities at the same time for clearer, smoother, and younger looking skin
  • Perfect for sensitive skin or those looking to treat redness, irritation or acne issues: acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and helps soothe the skin overnight
  • Brightens the skin and leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother, softer, and more radiant when you wake up in the morning, removes impurities
  • Excellent product for dry skin, as it hydrates the entire face and neck area while your sleeping (while your skin is doing its most active repair), and you wake up to a much more lively and moisturized complexion
  • Can be used as an every night treatment, and as a neck treatment
  • Does not feel greasy or sticky on the skin or leave any residue on your linens, pillows or sheets
  • Naturally brightens dull skin, leaves the skin glowing and radiant in the morning (even if you haven’t gotten enough rest)
  • Helps extract blackheads, blemishes, and has anti-acne benefits with use
  • Minimizes the appearance of pore size and tightens the appearance of the nasal and t-zone area


  • Price point: for an overnight sleep mask, while the benefits and ingredients are certainly great with use, this is a bit of a splurge item, so you really have to be a fan of sleep masks and the mask category (and the benefits gained) to indulge- however I found it to be worth it in comparison to what it does for your skin, it’s one of the best overnight treatments on the market
  • A few customers noticed breakouts/blemishes after use (which can happen with any skincare product), but this product is definitely designed to be extremely gentle and safe for sensitive skin

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask: Worth It Winner?

While The Sleep Mask is on the pricier side for an overnight treatment, in comparison to the anti-aging benefits and actual effectiveness of the product, this is definitely worth it for its price when you are looking for an overnight solution to treat several problems at once.

There are also much pricier treatments on the market, such as the La Mer Concentrate, as competitor products.

When you’re looking to treat all of the signs of aging, hydrate your skin, and detoxify the skin at once (all while you’re asleep without putting in any work), this is definitely a worth it winner. The ingredients used in the Sleep Mask are also all natural and act like food for your skin, providing you with a healthy and radiant glow first thing in the morning, so you can put your best face forward even if it’s been a late night or you’ve had a long week at work.

When you’re looking for preventative care and protection from the sun and environment, this mask (even after removal), also has a strong moisture hold and absorbs right into the skin, protecting you from damage throughout the entire next day and preventing new signs of aging and damage from forming on the skin.

If you’re looking for a protective body product that’s similar, you can read our review on Aveeno’s body lotion here.

I was a bit nervous about trying out this overnight sleep mask due to the potential for grease or residue leftovers on pillows, linens, and my own face, but I woke up to none of that- and nothing but bright and glowing skin.

Highly recommended for glowing, “sleeping beauty” type skin that looks and feels refreshed and soft in the morning, this is a must-have that is fairly addictive to use as a part of your nightly routine.
