According to the scientists at Clinique, our ‘skin is programmed to fine tune its rhythm for the next day at night time. During these hours, skin also becomes vulnerable to water loss and a compromised barrier function.’
My face took such a battering from the wind and snow today; walking to London Bridge train station literally made my skin sting! I needed to treat my face to some goodness, so I made sure that tonight I had a good night time skincare routine.
This new Moisture Surge Overnight Mask works like a good night cream (so don’t rinse it off) and it contains ingredients like aloe barbadensis leaf water to hydrate and calm the skin, trehalose and sorbitol to prevent dehydration, sodium hyaluronate; a polymer which helps plump and smooth the skin, shea butter, mango butter and pomegranate sterols to moisturise; and algae and caffeine to smooth and calm the skin.
Depending on your skin type, you might find it too rich in the Summer but for winter, it’s just what you need. I have combination skin and it didn’t make my face feel greasy on application or in the morning.
The Moisture Surge Overnight Mask smells gorgeous and after just one nights wear, I could see the difference in my face. My skin felt ridiculously smooth, fresh and hydrated and even Mr 32 Boroughs remarked that I looked well. Considering my 2 year old woke me up at the crack of dawn, I can’t put it down to a good nights sleep!
