Must Have: Neal's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate
Some days you just wake up and look in the mirror with horror. If, like me, your skin can appear as if an alien has sucked the life out of you overnight, then you need a little pick-me-up to prevent small children screaming. I discovered Neal's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate by accident, applying it to my face as an overnight moisturiser (reading labels is not my thing.) When I woke up and looked in the bathroom mirror I was greeted with something that resembled human, rather than me minus any moisture or healthy glow. The Beauty Sleep Concentrate has been scientifically formulated to support skin’s natural night time regeneration, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's lightweight and very easily absorbed into skin, so you don't feel like you're slapping on a thick horrendous cream and spend the night worrying about damaging your pillows. A couple of pumps are enough to cover the face in a thin veil, which instantly leaves skin feeling hydrated and fresh. Upon awaking the next morning, skin looks plumper, fresher, revived and hydrated. There's none of that sallowness that often follows a bad night's sleep, only a refreshingly clear and awake skin. In clinical trials conducted before the launch of this product, the concentrate was proven to increase moisture levels in skin by up to 98% over 12 hours - that's pretty incredible. With skincare it can be really difficult to notice a visible difference from one product, but I could instantly see the difference this made after one night and continue to do so. I've taken this away with me to use after long flights, for hen weekends and wedding celebrations, benefitting from a fresher complexion and a more unified skintone thanks to the added moisture. I couldn't recommend it more. In my eyes, it's a total must have.
Neal's Yard Beauty Sleep Concentrate is available from boutiques and online priced £31.50
