Topping the charts among iconic imports and sporting just the proper amount of cult air, the Skinesis Overnight Facial from Sarah Chapman London is, indeed, all that. After months, if not years, of hearing about this magical potion, I couldn’t resist the Space.NK window during a Euro trip a few weeks ago. I’m so eyeing the Ultimate Cleanse next!
What is it?
Developed by Sarah Chapman, London’s most sought after facialist with over twenty years of industry experience, this serum oil hybrid is an at-home solution that can help achieve her famed red carpet glow. A multi-tasking powerhouse, the Overnight Facial is a lightweight treatment for cleansed skin (post essence or hydration booster) before bed a handful of times a week. Geared to rejuvenate, firm, brighten and smooth tired, overexposed skin, it leaves you looking rested by morning.
Who needs it?
Anyone with rough skin or uneven tone (think blotchy), or those who want to boost their nighttime routine with a serious anti-aging medley should familiarize themselves with Overnight Facial. Enlarged pores? Fine lines? Overall dullness to what used to be a vibrant complexion that all of a sudden takes time to recover after travel or a late night? This superstar formula from Sarah Chapman addresses and corrects all of the above.
Overnight Facial absorbs beautifully – your pillowcase is safe. My combination skin does very well with only a hydrating serum underneath. I’ve experienced no dryness indulging three times per week.
What’s in it?
Choc-full of firming, plumping and radiance boosting compounds, Overnight Facial uses a nourishing base of Jojoba, Hemp and Meadowfoam Seed Oils. Infused with Vitamins A, C, E, Retinyl Palmitate, Renovage™ and Alpha Lipoic Acid, this Skinesis elixir does not skimp on the active ingredients that have been proven to deliver remarkable results. Add in the antioxidants and countless peptides and you have one of the most well-rounded anti-agers ever created.
Personally, I love the floral-herbal aroma, which can’t be ignored, and which may not be everyone’s favorite. What I don’t love is that £46 price tag (SpaceNK.com) because the 15ml bottle is disappearing in record time and I have only been using two pumps per treatment. FYI, the bottle is approximately the size of a standard eye cream. Beware of Bloomingdales.com who seems to ignore the prevailing exchange rate and raises the price to $90. Lookfantastic.com offers it more reasonably for $57. Believe it or not, it sells out constantly so don’t wait. Treat yourself.
