I do love a bit of skincare… especially overnight skincare. In fact, I’ve recently been having a bit of a fling with overnight masks but that’s a whole other blog post in the making. This one is to take a little look at some of my current favourite skincare products for overnight use.
Omorovicza Instant Plumping Cream*
This is a fairly intense face cream, but absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling hydrated and ‘plumped’ up (on a side note, plumping is such a good word). I like this because it feels like a treat for my dehydrated skin but without feeling too heavy.
I wont wax lyrical about how much I adore this as I only recently spoke about it… but you can read more HERE. Basically if you have dehydrated eyes, get this. It’s wonderful.
I am absolutely loving this for a more intense night cream than the one I use in the day (currently Elemis Collagen One). Firstly it’s a cream, which feels like it has an instant effect when applied – but doesn’t feel too heavy on the delicate eye area. Plus the hydration it delivers really does last. It comes in some pretty fancy packaging too – probably the largest bottle I’ve seen for an eye cream product containing just 15ml!
Downside to this? The price – it’s £107.40 which means when it runs out there’s no way I can justify to replace it.
This is the cream I use when I just want a ‘normal’ level of hydrating night cream (if I want a bit more I use the Omorovicza and if I want loads I use the oil). This is more intensely hydrating than my usual choice of day cream but isn’t so full-on that it couldn’t be used for day. One of the things I love most about this (and the Molton Brown skincare range overall) is how amazing it smells. It really is a pleasure to use.
Ah Clarins, how do I love thee…let me count the ways… This for me is the pinnacle of my nighttime skincare routine. When my skin isn’t totally happy and I need something to sort it out quickly, this is my saviour. I’ve said before how I am a big fan of oil products as skincare (cleansers, treatments, etc) and this is about as lovely as they come. It smells lovely, absorbs in easily without leaving too much of an oily film on skin – although it does leave a layer (so perhaps don’t use your best pillows if you’re trying this out) but in the morning all oil has gone and my skin feels hydrated and practically glowing.
