Review: Overnight Skincare.


Origins Night-A-Mins - £33 (full size)

The evening is when I slap on my favourite skincare products for a little bit of an overnight blitz. Products always work best overnight while your body is rejuvenating and of course you're asleep so having a little extra product on won't bother you. 
There are a few products I reach for every night to give my skin a boost and to help repair and nourish overnight. Many of the above I've been using for a while now and they've always had a great affect on my skin. 

Cliniques All About Eyes is a product I've used for years - my skin is still young and I have no signs of wrinkles but I don't get as much sleep as I should so the area around my eyes can get dull, dark and puffy. All About Eyes is a great product to help cool and soothe my eyes without being too heavy. I love how refreshing this feels on my tired, sensitive eyes and it's an eye cream I can't fault. 

I've recently named Caudalies Divine Oil my product of the month (post here) - it really is such an incredible product that gives amazing results from the first use. I use this all over my body and on the ends of my hair after a shower and it makes my skin so nourished and glowing. I also use this a couple of times a week in the evening to rejuvenate my skin, leaving it soft and clearer the next day. I try and massage my face when I use this, to boost circulation. If you buy one product this month, make sure it's Divine Oil! 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair was gifted to me by my thoughtful boyfriend. I wouldn't usually have splashed out this much for this product so it was a lovely surprise. I don't think I've stopped using this since I got it, it makes a massive difference to my skin, clearing up blemishes and helping with dark marks from scarring. This really lives up to the hype and is worth every penny. I tend to mix a bit of Divine Oil in with this serum for an extra boost. 

I was given a sample of Origins Night-A-Mins at the counter recently and it has worked wonders. As my skin is prone to blemishes/scarring and tends to look dull quickly, an overnight renewal cream like this is essential. It sloughs away dead skin cells while you sleep, leaving brighter, smoother skin when you wake up. It also helps you to sleep! This is a great product if you have dull skin, and I don't find this too heavy at all. 

Lastly, NUXE lip balm is absolutely essential if you get dry lips regularly, like me. In the words of Zoe  "I apply this before bed, and when I wake up it's STILL THERE!" - I actually never thought about this before I read that but it's true, it is still there. I'm really unsure how I coped without this as it really is one of those products that lives up to the hype!

We all know I'm obsessed with skincare, so I hope you enjoyed the products I swear by for overnight nourishment. What is your skincare routine at night?
