Inside: A review of City Beauty’s MicroBiome Night Mask
This post is in partnership with City Beauty. As always, the concept and content are my own. This post may contain affiliate links. For full disclosure, click HERE.
I remember the day so well:
I was out to lunch with some girlfriends. They were chatting about skincare, and somebody said something about moisturizer. One of them asked me what moisturizer I used.
Confused, I said, “I don’t use any moisturizer.” They were shocked.
Why? Because I was in my 40s. Not to brag or anything, but my skin was flawless.
Except for occasional pimples as a teenager, and a minor bout with rosacea in my 30s, I’d never given my skin a second thought. Moisturizer? Who needed that?
And then, one day in my late 40s, I woke up and it seemed like all the moisture was gone from my skin. My face felt like it was carved out of the desert sand. Suddenly, I had dry, flaky skin on my face.
Ever since that day, just like many of you, I’ve been a slave to moisturizers, night creams, Korean face masks, and other types of skincare products that promise to restore my skin’s moisture and youthful appearance.
While some of the products helped temporarily, none of them seemed to help for more than a day or so. (I’m sure it didn’t help that I live in Los Angeles, where the desert air does one’s skin no favors).
But I think I found the solution, finally, thanks to my friends over at City Beauty.
I am a big fan of City Beauty products in general, and their awesome skincare products in particular, as you might have guessed from my other City Beauty reviews.
But their newest product, the MicroBiome Night Mask, is my new favorite! It has done wonders for my skin in just a few short weeks, and I’m super-enthusiastic about it.
What Is the City Beauty MicroBiome Night Mask?
The MicroBiome Night Mask is a cruelty-free sleeping mask that works with your body’s night-time renewal process to help balance the skin’s microbiome.
The skin microbiome is comprised of billions of microorganisms that work together to keep your skin healthy and in great condition.
When your microbiome gets unbalanced, it can lead to various unwanted skin conditions associated with age (fine lines, wrinkles, redness, patchy skin tone, etc.).
The MicroBiome Night Mask targets this imbalance, and supports your skin’s protective barrier, so when you wake up in the morning, your skin looks renewed and refreshed.
The Night Mask is barely scented, which I love.
I hate heavily fragranced products, especially since my skin is sensitive. I had to work really hard to get even a whiff of scent from this product, and that’s a good thing!
It’s also a lovely light-lavender colored cream. Unlike many skincare products, it’s not heavy – it’s super-light, so it feels great on my face.
What are the Other Benefits of the MicroBiome Night Mask?
The MicroBiome Night Mask is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. No matter what skin type you have, it should leave your skin feeling renewed.
It will also save you time since it works while you sleep!
A lot of us don’t have the time to put on a standard face mask during the week as even the 20 minute wait time for those products can seem like an eternity if you are overwhelmed.
The MicroBiome Night Mask is:

How To Use The MicroBiome Night Mask
At night, before bed, I wash my face as usual. City Beauty notes that applying the mask to exfoliated skin produces the best results, so I use their exfoliating Youth-Rejuvenating Cleanser and pat my face dry.
Then, I spread a thin layer of the mask all over my clean face.
The MicroBiome Night Mask is a sleeping mask, so I don’t rinse it off, but just leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning.
I haven’t noticed any issues with it staining my light-colored pillowcase, but you could always leave it on for 30 minutes before going to bed – or just put a towel over your pillowcase, if that’s a concern for you.
Results: How Does the MicroBiome Mask Help My Skin?
I’ve only used the MicroBiome Night Mask for a few weeks, but I’ve already seen a BIG difference in my skin. My skin has never felt better! It feels soft and looks smooth.
I am always skeptical of anti-aging claims in skincare products, but I must admit my skin looks more youthful since I started using the mask. My wrinkles are less visible and my skin looks more even in tone (less redness, for sure!)
See these pix below? I took them yesterday. I hope the photos convey that my skin was looking radiant because it WAS!
My skin is makeup-free in these images – no moisturizer and no foundation. I’m very happy with these results!
Do I want to look 22? No, I am happy being my age. But if my skin can look healthier and feel great, I’m OK with that.
My skin feels so hydrated after using the MicroBiome Night Mask that I don’t need to add any moisturizer to my face AT ALL. I haven’t used moisturizer in weeks. It’s pretty amazing!
I am always careful not to gush about products, but I honestly LOVE this one!
Conclusion: Is the MicroBiome Night Mask Worth It?
The MicroBiome Night Mask is now a major part of my skincare routine. I honestly have nothing negative to say about this product.
Between the Night Mask, the cleanser and the Multi-Action Sculpting Cream, I feel like City Beauty has solved many of my skincare problems, and I’m grateful for that.
Obviously, everyone’s skin reacts differently to a product, so results are not guaranteed.
