The funny thing about this product is that I kind of meant to make it about 4 years ago. It’s what ended up being my now award-winning and best-selling OMG Serum. But when I started on that, I actually wanted to make a really rich, indulgent beauty balm. However, lengthy experimentation led me down the serum route. But hey ho, here I am now, and this new Overnight Organic Skin Drink is completely and utterly worth the wait. Months of trial and error and now my own extremely happy skin means I’m ready to share this with all of you. And you won’t be disappointed. I have picked a handful of very high-performing, high-end ingredients to take this night cream to the next level of marvelousness.
My skin is dry, eczema prone, and needs lots of gorgeous, rich oils to keep it hydrated, soft and line free. So with that in mind, I’ve created this velvety, indulgent and rich balm to deliver serious hydration to your face overnight whilst you sleep. The eight very carefully selected plant oils and butters work all night whilst you sleep to moisturise, protect, boost cellular activity and regenerate your skin. High in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, this overnight skin drink will slow ageing, reverse photo damage and quite literally repair your skin. And all with not a chemical in sight!
Here are some of the ingredients and why I picked them:
Organic Babassu Oil: pressed from the kernels of the babassu palm tree. This oil has similar properties to Coconut oil, being high in lauric acid. It contains glycosides, vitamins and minerals. Babassu oil is used for its soothing, protective properties. It penetrates quickly and does not leave an oily feeling on the skin. Babassu oil has been used for centuries to soothe dry skin. It forms a protective, soothing coat when applied and provides a pleasant, velvety feeling. It is a superior emollient beneficial for both dry and oily complexions. Its especially suitable for eczema, itchy, dry and inflamed skin.
Organic Raspberry Seed Oil: extraordinarily high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, raspberry seed oil is a superb anti-oxidant. It contains 83% essential fatty acids. Its high level of Vitamin E is known to give it an important role in skin repair and conditioning. Raspberry Oil is known especially for its prevention of sensitivity, rashes, eczema and other skin problems. Raspberry seed oil is emollient, lubricating, conditioning, creates a lipid barrier providing protection to the skin and provides excellent moisture retention for the skin.
Marula Oil: a multipurpose oil containing powerful antioxidants, high concentrations of nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids that protect against environmental aggressors, reverse photo-damage, boost cellular activity, hydrate at the deepest levels and repair the skin.
Organic Shea Butter: contains Vitamins A, E and F which are particularly helpful for damaged skin either by sun or general pollution. Vitamin F is a rejuvenator to the skin. What makes Shea butter so useful in skincare is its ability to penetrate the skin without clogging pores, allowing the skin to breathe; shea butter is amazing for deeply hydrating very dry skin.
Calendula Oil: regenerative and anti-inflammatory. Good for treating damaged and chapped skin. The powerful action lies in improving the blood flow to the area and in increasing tissue regeneration.
Organic Rosehip Oil: high in Vitamin C, this oil has a tonic and diuretic effect on the body. Most commonly known as an ideal oil for ageing skin due to its regenerative properties. Skin cell regenerative, it is said to help slow premature ageing. It also helps alleviate burns, wounds and eczema and helps minimise scarring.
Roman Chamomile Essential Oil: promotes smooth, healthy skin and relieves irritations because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Works very well on even the most sensitive skin, and also helps to calm and promote a good night’s sleep, making it the perfect choice for a night cream.
Here’s what happy customers told me, “lovely, faintly fruity smell, glides beautifully onto the skin and is quickly absorbed with no greasy residue; I’ve had no problems with sensitivity and my skin feels very soft and nourished in the morning.”
“after only a few nights of using the night cream on my skin not only felt different, softer and smoother, but looked noticeably brighter, better, and like I’d had enough sleep for a change! My skin feels extremely nourished and cared for.”
