For a guaranteed glow, use an overnight mask the night before Valentine’s Day, like Belif Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask 75ml.  Jelly-like texture that tightly attaches to the skin with a cooling sensation creates a moisturizing barrier and provides effective moisturizing and soothing effects until the next morning.
