Rest Day Masque is a deeply moisturizing treatment that corrects dryness, tightness, and visible flaking to effectively restore your skin's moisture barrier.
Regular price


"Unlike many barrier products that act as a mere bandage with occlusives, ours uses 3 methods to deeply transform and heal from the inside, much like ointment does under a bandage."
Renée Rouleau


  • Take a break from heavy-hitting active ingredients and pamper your skin with the restorative magic of Rest Day Masque. This deeply moisturizing treatment will be your favorite go-to solution for instantly correcting dryness, tightness, and visible flaking that's often caused by actives such as exfoliating acids, benzoyl peroxide, and retinol/prescription retinoids (Say goodbye to the retinol scaries!). The secret to its effectiveness lies in our Barrier3 technology which uses three powerful methods to revitalize the barrier. This includes fatty acids, omega-rich plant oils, and occlusives that form a protective seal on the skin, providing deep, long-lasting comfort.

    Why you need it

    • Everyone's skin needs a night off from active ingredients, to rehab their skin's barrier

    Yes. There are no ingredients in this product deemed unsafe to use during pregnancy.

    Is this product tested on animals?


    Is this product vegan?


    How does Rest Day Masque compare to Pure Radiance Creme Masque?

    Rest Day Masque is specifically formulated for barrier repair for those with dryness, redness, sensitivity, and irritation due to using active ingredients such as retinol, prescription retinoids, exfoliating acids, benzoyl peroxide, and other drying treatments. It is also beneficial for post-procedure following chemical peels and laser treatments where the skin's barrier has been compromised.

    Pure Radiance Creme Masque is for nourishing dry, tired skin due to age, post-flight, and a dry climate.

    What are the three methods of barrier repair used in this product?

    Many barrier repair products mainly use occlusives to put a protective seal over the skin. Our Barrier3 technology uses this along with two other methods (fatty acids and plant oils) to penetrate the skin and restore skin's lipid profile, transforming it from the inside out. Think of it like a bandage over a wound. It will provide protection, but you'll get a faster recovery when you use a healing ointment underneath. Read more about ingredients that will actually repair your skin barrier.

    Can this be used for eczema?

    Yes. Especially when left on the skin as a sleeping mask, this works to lessen symptoms of eczema, such as visible dryness and itchiness.

    I do a weekly facial at-home with Triple Berry Smoothing Peel, followed by a mask. Can I use this as my mask?

    Absolutely! This works beautifully when applied after using a rinse-off exfoliating peel.

    Why is it advised not to use this mask with a retinol or exfoliating product?

    This mask contains occlusives that form a protective seal over the skin. To avoid potential skin reactions caused by trapping active ingredients within, we recommend not combining this product with retinols, retinoids, or exfoliating acids.

    Would this product be good for someone using Accutane® (isotretinoin)?

    Yes, this is perfect for that! This mask is great for alleviating tightness and dryness to bring comfort to flaky, stressed skin.

    Is this product safe to use for skin types 1-4 (those prone to breakouts and clogged pores?)

    1. Conduct a patch test to see how your skin responds

    2. If the patch test didn't present any visible issues, choose the wash-off option for usage and apply all over the face for 15 minutes

    3. Start by using once weekly, then gradually increase if more repair is needed

    Does this product have added fragrance?

    No, it is fragrance-free.

    What is the pH level of this product?

    The pH level of Rest Day Masque is 5.5.

    Where are your products made?

    Our products are manufactured in the U.S. and Canada.

    I took your Skin Type Quiz and was wondering if I can use products that weren't specified for my skin type?

    Yes. While the skin type product recommendations are carefully selected for the needs of a specific type of skin to give the best results, many people will modify their routine with other products as needed.

    I have questions about my skin, where can I get help?

      Great rest day masque

      I’ve been using this for over a week now on the nights I’m not exfoliating. I love how my skin feels the next morning. I hope this works in cold weather as well, as I usually have to use a heavier night moisturizer during those months.
