As you probably already know if you’ve followed my blog for a while, I try various skincare products and sometimes there are stand-out items that I have to shout about…this is one of them!
Formula Absolute Sleep Cream
The Formula Absolute Sleep Cream from Marks & Spencer has become a staple in my routine. Since trying it as part of the 2016 beauty advent calendar, I have used it, generally every other night as I rotate it with using an oil on the opposite night, although I do also use this on top of an oil sometimes and the combination sits well together.
It is described by M&S as ‘100% intuitive skincare’ that makes you look like you’ve had 8 hours sleep…even when you haven’t! The claims are that skin appears less fatigued, deep lines appear reduced, firmer skin, healthier looking skin with improved elasticity, softer feeling skin and more! It is Hypoallergenic, suitable for all skin types, cruelty free and paraben free!
I have been using this cream at night regularly and initially when I tried it I have to admit, I thought the thickness of the cream would be off-putting given I have always avoided thicker moisturisers.
I applied it at night as directed as the last step of my routine and one thing I have to say is that it smells AMAZING! The following morning I couldn’t believe how soft my skin felt and also how calm it looked in the mirror! I don’t think I’ve ever used a cream that’s had results that I’ve been able to notice that soon! Despite being a thicker cream than those that I’m used to, it’s still light enough to feel comfortable on the skin and it leaves it feeling super hydrated.
I used to avoid moisturising creams at night due to having oily skin. I’ve mentioned previously that my skin has been much better since sorting my skincare needs out and using appropriate products, this is one of those products! I cannot recommend this enough!! I love it!!
Have you tried any of the Beauty ranges from Marks & Spencer?
