Mineral Make Up - Ok to Sleep In?

I'm not a huge fan of mineral make up (although I do own a lot of it lol) but I was curious about the claims that it is ok to sleep in. Don't get me wrong though, I have always been a religious remover of makeup before bed (even when alcohol has been consumed) and the thought of going to bed in makeup just makes me feel uggghhhhh. Lately, however, I have been feeling the lure of trying this out. I work shifts and with increasingly busy nightshifts sometimes I just come home in the morning and want to collapse straight into bed. It's all I can do to brush my teeth lol!

So recently I have been putting this to the test. I still remove all my make up when I'm going to bed at night but I have been sleeping in my mineral makeup after nightshifts - oooh the shame.

I have to say that I have had no adverse reactions to this. My skin is neither better nor worse for this practice. My pillows are still clean and my makeup is still on my face when I get up. It's not exactly as perfect as it was when it was applied but it is definitely still there and the proof is in the cotton pads I use to cleanse my face.

Have any of you tried this? Do you like mineral makeup in general?


  1. Wow that's really interesting. To me, it seems like the makeup would rub off onto the pillow. Guess not then. Great experiment. :)

  2. I really like mineral makeup. I've done the same thing and I've found that it doesn't improve my skin if I sleep in it, but it doesn't break it out either. In my opinion, I think it's better to sleep with this on your face that a non mineral foundation, but it would still be better to wash your face. But I don't think it's a big deal to sleep in your makeup every once in a while anyway! :)Sorry, just my random thoughts!

  3. I sometimes sleep in mine with no probs :)

  4. Thanks for your replies everyone. It's great to hear I'm not the only one:)
