My complexion thrives on rich overnight treatment balms and creams in spite of my having a textbook case of combination skin. Many formulas, however, barely have had the time to sink in before I am up posting my first cold brew insta story at 5am. Ish. Enter ELEMIS Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil, which does twice the work of that of my usual bedtime moisturizer, and which is fully absorbed before my head hits the pillow.
What is it?
Formulated to harness both the hydrating benefits of a cream and the nourishing properties of an oil, this new spa grade solution from across the pond showcases its anti-aging powers when the skin is at its most relaxed state: sleep. Ready to embrace recovery after being exposed to free radicals and environmental pollutants during the day, our complexions follow their natural biological rhythm, which helps boost the process of repair in the absence of light.
What’s in it?
Fueled by skin plumping, line minimizing, and radiance boosting Peptide⁴, the new Cream-Oil formula is also infused with a farmer cultivated Night Scented Stock oil. It is rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids and contains ten times the Vitamin E found in other botanical compounds. This breakthrough ingredient features a delicate aroma that soothes the mind and dissipates quickly, but lingers just long enough to help you doze off comfortably. It’s farm to face perfection.
Surprisingly lightweight, the texture of the latest ELEMIS products is more fluid than creamy. Without the traditional ‘oil slip’, it glides on the skin and absorbs like a lotion–with a soft matte finish. For me, it is the perfect low maintenance/high performance blend. A great entry point for those who typically avoid facial oils, its unique and user friendly texture makes for seamless integration into your existing skincare regimen.
If you enjoy ELEMIS cult classics such as the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm or Marine Cream, this new nighttime innovation is not to be missed. Coming soon to elemis.com, currently available exclusively at QVC.com as part of the ELEMIS 24/7 Super Skin 3-Piece Collection ($99). – £49.00
