There’s no room for debate when it comes to what my favorite ice cream flavor is: cookies and cream. The combination of chocolate, sweet vanilla, and cookie bits is simply divine, and I would eat it everyday if I could. With that being said, I found the next best thing and I can indulge every single night if I wish. Meet the e.l.f. Cosmetics Cookies ‘N Dreams Milkshake Overnight Mask, a face mask that deliciously smells like — you guessed it — cookies and cream ice cream.

I’m always looking for other ways to get my fix of this top-tier dessert, but never did I ever imagine that there would be a skin care product inspired by this iconic flavor. And this mask’s benefits don’t just stop at its sweet scent.

As someone with dry skin, overnight masks are a vital part of my nighttime skin care routine. I’m always looking for a product that’s going to moisturize and hydrate my skin, and this Cookies ‘N Dreams mask does just that. I’d be amiss not to mention though that it’s also great for all skin types. So whether your complexion is on the drier side like mine or more oily, you can still get your cookies and cream fix.

In terms of the formula, there’s a few key ingredients in this overnight mask that make it a standout from other face masks I’ve tried in the past: shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and jojoba beads.

The shea butter soothes and hydrates the skin while the hyaluronic acid locks in moisture to help maintain supple, plump skin. And when you wash off the mask, the jojoba beads gently exfoliate to reveal a lit-from-within glow.

Packaged in a small blue tube, the whipped formula can be massaged into the skin and allowed to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing, or be used as an overnight mask and washed off in the morning.

The best part (besides that cookies and cream scent, of course)? The price. This product clocks in at just $9 — not much more than a cone of the good stuff.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Cookies ‘N Cream Collection

The e.l.f. Cosmetics Cookies ‘N Cream Collection goes beyond just the overnight mask: The line also offers other skin care and makeup products that boast that same scrumptious scent.

Included in the collection is a putty primer that can be applied before foundation for a smoother application, three lip glosses that boast a high shine and can be worn alone or over lipstick, and a lip exfoliator that gently buffs away dead skin while moisturizing your pout. And while not scented, also found in the collection is an eyeshadow palette that features eight matte, shimmer, and metallic shades inspired by the yummy treat.

And with price points that range from $4 to $9, the Cookies ‘N Dream collection is as delectable as it gets. Has there ever been a beauty collection so sweet?
