Sleep and skincare, two of my favourite things in the whole world! Having combination skin, I find it best to use moisturising products overnight that leave my skin feeling hydrated and makeup ready by the next morning. There are 4 products that I gravitate towards for overnight use, all
After discovering how much of a game changer the Ultra Facial Cream was, I knew I needed to try some other products from the ultra facial range. This is a thick, gel consistency (reminds me of old school hair gel) which I apply, leave for 10 minutes and then tissue off any access before calling it a night. In the morning my skin feels incredibly hydrated, nourished and visibly my skin looks almost clearer overnight! This also helps my daily moisturiser do its magic keeping my skin hydrated throughout the day. This one does leave an almost sticky feel to the skin, something to bare in mind if you’re not a fan of that.
DR BOTANICALS ADVANCED PURIFYING OVERNIGHT MASQUE* £67 (£19.99 with discount code JODIEBLOG)
A more recent addition to my overnight skincare stash. This masque is made up of 100% natural ingredients – papaya, jojoba oil and sweet almond, all of which are well known for their ability to actually make a difference to skins radiance, suppleness and levels of moisture. I have been using this the most recently and I’ve found it does an amazing job at reducing the appearance of fine lines in my skin caused by dehydration! It’s a lightweight, thin cream that doesn’t clog my pores or cause me to be any more oily either. I think this is the perfect overnight masque for anyone with combination skin.
If you have dehydrated skin and haven’t tried this, where the hell have you been?! Unlike the Dr Botanicals masque this has more of a thick and creamy texture which feels like it’s working from the get go. The morning after using this my skin looks much more radiant, plump and definitely feels hydrated not only in the morning but throughout the day. One thing to bare in mind, this does have quite a heavy peach scent which personally I love and actually reach for this sometimes just because I love the scent so much! As the packaging says, this one really does quench skin’s thirst!
AVENE SOOTHING MOISTURE MASK* £11.50
I rediscovered this mask when I started thinking about writing this post. This is my favourite to use during the warmer months, it provides my skin with the additional moisture it needs whilst still being lightweight and not overly rich. In the past if I’ve ever suffered with any dry patches I’ve also found that this works a treat at clearing things up. I think this is another mask that will work well for anyone with combination skin.
While sleeping our skin looses moisture rapidly, so whether you have oily, dry or normal skin I would really recommend investing in a good overnight facial mask!
