I’ve been exploring new skin products lately. I’ve been trying to look outside of the box for new products and ingredients that I haven’t used before and share my findings with your guys. I am probably very late on this but I have found a great interest in Korean Beauty Products. Thus discovering the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream White Sleeping Pack. It is something similar to Night Creams that we are familiar with in the States. The biggest difference that I’ve found is that Sleeping Packs are very very hydrating but absorb really fast so they don’t make a mess all over your pillow or get in your hair while you’re sleeping.
Something else that I’ve noticed as I research more Korean Beauty Products is the use of words Whitening or White Products. At first, I was a little discouraged because whitening and lightening products are frowned upon and can be harmful to your skin. Luckily I was able to find there is a difference in the meaning of “whitening” when it comes to Asian products.
It DOES NOT mean it’s a product that will lighten or eliminate the existing melanin in your skin. When it comes to skin care products, Asia ‘white’ skin equates to clarity, evenness, and luminosity. To create a maximum skin glow.

Product | A sleeping pack gives a quick moisture absorption and helps to even out skin tone.
Pigmentation | The Panda’s Dream White is just that, white. It’s a creamy white shade that appears transparent when it’s spread and rubbed into the skin. It doesn’t leave a tint or a grayish tone to the skin.
Application | The Panda’s Dream White Sleeping Pack can be applied with your fingers at the end of your skin regimen. I was very surprised how quickly it absorbed. I was concerned about the product getting on my silk pillows but it absorbed into my skin faster than it took me to walk over to my bed. I thought my skin was extra thirsty because it had been hot for the last few days so I applied again. It absorbed just as fast.
Texture/Finish | Even though the product has a water drop texture, it’s not watery or runny at all. It feels creamy and smooth and spreads very easily on the skin.
Longevity | One of the features of this sleep pack is that it absorbs really quickly, yet contains a lot of water and fruit extracts. Within about 40 seconds the product was completely absorbed, leaving my skin feel hydrated without too moist or clammy.

List ingredients that are interesting:
Timber Bamboo Sap – Sap derived from bamboo stalks is a deeply hydrating ingredient that is said to strengthen and smooth skin while aiding in skin cell regeneration and cell turnover. Timber bamboo sap is rich in minerals and amino acids and acts as a humectant to draw moisture into the deeper layers of skin and help maintain hydration where it’s needed most.
Is it Vegan?: No. This product contains extracts from bee honey.
Does this company animal test?: Unknown at this time. The website does not state that they are cruelty-free and either does the product so I am unsure.

Overview | I really like how hydrating and quickly this product absorbs into my skin. Over six days my skin has become more supple and less dehydrated during the day. It has a light pleasure scent that doesn’t distract me from trying to relax and sleep. My skin feels smoother and has a healthy amount of moisture. It’s a great product the help restore the hydration to the skin after cleansers and makeup removers.
