This Akane mask is exclusive to Birchbox, and it makes use of apples, black tea and hylauronic acid. It claims to be perfect for stressed, dehydrated skin, and works by adding moisture overnight - you apply it just before bed in place of a night cream or serum, and rinse off in the morning.
Unfortunately that's as much detail as I can find about this product, or indeed, about Akane as a brand. Having tried it a few times now, I'm not really all that impressed. It has a slimy, bouncy texture which is relatively easy to spread across the skin, but which tends to form little strands of product if you try to massage it into the skin. As for the effects, I've not woken up to amazingly different skin at all - my skin's hydrated, yes, but it's not particularly radiant, nor does it look plumped up or particularly different from normal.
In fact, I don't really think it offers much above a decent night cream or serum. I also find it a bit weird that after an entire night sat on my face (smirk), there's still a residue which needs washing off in the morning.
At £18, this isn't the most expensive overnight mask I've tried, but it's also one of the least effective. If you're interested in spreading slime on your face overnight for no visible effect in the morning, you'll find a little more detail on the Birchbox website - although if you can figure out how you actually buy it, you're doing better than I am.
