     Germaine de Capuccini SRNS Night Cure

    Beauty and the Sleep

    We all know that beauty sleep is so very important, it's the time when your body recuperates and heals, the problem is we never seem to catch up on all the beauty sleep we need whether it's from work, travel or partying so give your beauty regime a helping hand with these products that work on your skin whilst you sleep - awesome! Also great for those that don't always keep to a beauty regime, let these products do the hard work whilst you just catch the zzz's - lazy girls overnight skin care.

    Germaine de Capuccini Timexpert SRNS Night Sleeping Cure - £55.00

    This is a super serum on steroids, my personal favourite. Packed with 60% active ingredients it will smooth, repair, hydrate and plump the only thing it won't do is wake you up with a fresh coffee. It smells fabulous and comes in really cute little glass vials and contains 2ml, which doesn't sound much, but a little goes a long way. You are meant to put the whole vial on covering your face and décolletage however if you just do your face you can get two nights out of one vial. You get 10 vials in one box, you can use them every night for 10 nights or as I prefer as and when I need them. They are great after a long weekend or a long flight, you will wake up and your skin will be rejuvenated, hydrated, brighter and smoother. Pop them in your overnight bag, handbag, first aid kit, just don't be without them.

    James Read Overnight Tan Sleep Mask Tan Face - £25.00

    Most moisturisers and face creams contain a SPF, so getting a bit of colour on your face safely can sometimes be difficult.  This colourless gel will work whilst you sleep and gradually build up to an even tan over a few nights so you can get the colour you want and not wake up 10 shades darker than you wanted!  Not only will it give you a nice glow but it contains Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic acid to soothe and hydrate your skin whilst making sure that your tan stays longer.  Apply to clean skin all over the face and décolletage making sure to work a bit into the hair line as well for even coverage.  Perfect for this time of year and you want a healthy glow for the upcoming party season.  As it’s colourless you don’t need to worry about sleeping on a towel as it won’t stain your bed linen but do remember to wash your hands after applying!

    Colbert MD Soothe Night Cream - £135.00

    Sleep like an angel with this night cream, well if it's good enough for the Victoria Secrets angels then who's complaining. A rich thick cream contains hyaluronic acid and shea butter this delivers all the goodness deep within the skin where it's needed. Not only will it deeply hydrate, it soothes and plumps out those pesky lines.  So it’s a bit pricey but wow does it do what it say’s.  It’s a rich cream that has a subtle fresh smell, sinks into the skin easily and with it’s unique Triad Delivery System all the goodness from the active ingredients are encapsulated so they are not released until the cream is on your face so you get the full impact.  Over time your skin will be plumper, fine lines reduced and environmental stresses (partying, city life, sun) will be calmed.

    Aromatherapy Associates Anti-Aging Overnight Repair Mask - £51.50

    This is a brilliant all rounder and doesn’t need to be used every night and can also be used during the day.  A thick deeply hydrating cream that not only feels fabulous on your skin but the rose and frankincense scent is really lovely and relaxing so it will definitely help to ensure you have a good night’s sleep.  Suitable for all skin types including sensitive, dry, mature.  When using as a night mask which is the best solution apply to cleansed and/or exfoliated skin and leave overnight, rinse off in the morning.  It really does feel like more of a rich face cream so you won’t feel the need to rinse it off in the morning but it is always best to remove all your night products in the morning and start again.  If your skin is very dry you can mix it with some face oil and use as day cream.

    Dr Dennis Gross Ferulic and Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Overnight Serum - £77.00

    This is one of the rock star products containing all the big names in skincare, packed with Niacinamide, Ferulic acid and Retinol it will knock the socks off your wrinkles and give you a firmer, smoother and more even complexion whilst you sleep.  It’s a thin, fairly odourless serum so remember a little really does go a long way and as it’s rather powerful you don’t want to be slapping this all over the place too thickly.  Apply directly to cleansed skin before anything else – would you need to add anything else after this? You will notice a subtle difference from the first application which will just get better the more and more you use it.  Suitable for most types of skin except sensitive.

    Sachajuan Overnight Hair Repair - £35.00

    Last but not least don’t forget you can also give your hair a helping hand whilst you sleep too.  The Overnight Hair Repair has been designed to strengthen your hair from within and deliver shine and nourishment to weak, colour damaged and brittle hair.  So it smells great as do all of the Sachajuan Products and should be applied to clean hair before leaving on overnight – can be a bit of a faff as it means cleaning and drying your hair before bed, however I have applied this last thing at night having washed my hair in the morning and it still works a treat.  I have very dry, frizzy and coloured hair and this is a game changer for me.  Work it into your hair (I find it best to just throw it on and work it through with a brush, give it a good 10 minutes to sink in though before hopping into bed), leave on overnight and then rinse off in the morning.  In the morning my hair is less frizzy, more manageable and looks less like I permanently live in a humid climate (wish I did).  Use once or twice a week or as needed.

  • Ouai Hair Oil - Tried, Tested and Adored!


    Ouai hair Oil

    Say 'Ouai' to Perfect Hair

    Ouai has set the hair care world alight with some of the best hair care 'preps' we've ever come across. The Hair Oil, we feel, needs honouring as it's quite simply the best we've ever tried. Why, I hear you ask? Read on to find out...

    By Nichola, The Beautiful's Beauty Advisor

    When my hair is thirsty, using a nourishing oil is always my first port of call. Until now, I'd always settled for the fact that they will weight my hair down a little, but the pain was worth the gain, then I discovered Ouai's Hair Oil and it changed everything for me.

    So here's how the story goes; my life is very hectic, I'm juggling two children and work, so 'me time' is a rarity. My hair is very thick and from time-to-time can become very dry, probably due to straightening and colouring. I use Sachajuan's Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner as both are just wonderful. When I feel my hair starts to dry and become thirsty I always apply a more intensive treatment overnight to charge it with moisture and make sure it's always looking in good repair. In the past, I've used almost every oil, serum and magic lotion I could get my hands on. Some good, some bad, but most weighted my hair down and sometimes, in a really strange way, my hair felt like it wasn't my own, it felt so weighed down that it was almost like a hat, it literally felt like it had been placed on my head and I could feel the weight with every move I made. Then I discovered Ouai.

    Admittedly, the Dry shampoo Foam was my first experience with the brand, which I love, and Hair Oil was my second. The Hair Oil glides on and has the perfect viscosity for my really thick hair. It's very watery which means it spreads very thinly throughout the hair and  doesn't add any excess weight- so top marks (with shiny bows on!) for that.

    The scent is mildly floral and has a beautiful Gardenia note running through it, you get a subtle waft of it from time-to-time but it's by no means overpowering; it's subtle, seductive and quite simply sensational.

    Once applied, the hair carries a discreet sheen and looks really healthy. It feels weightless and beautifully nourished.

    If your hair is so dry you need to call-out the 'Hair AA', then Ouai's hair oil is perfect for you.

    Use once or twice weekly before or after styling. For a ultra-intensive treatment, apply Ouai Hair Oil at night time, roll your hair into a bun, and go to bed while your hair drinks the nourishment. Voila!

  • Germaine de Capuccini Pro 60+ Wins Best Skincare Product

    Germaine de Capuccini Pro 60+
    The annual Beauty Shortlist Awards have just taken place and it's no surprise to us to see Germaine de Capuccini's Timexpert Pro 60+ Extra Nourishing Cream bag the gong for Best Skincare Product.

    Forming part of Germaine de Capuccini's Timexpert SRNS collection, Pro 60+ targets the signs of ageing skin from a cellular level. Years of research into Epigenetics (aka. gene behaviour) has led scientists to believe that it's not only our genetic make up that contributes to the rate at which the skin ages, but also how the genes behave and what triggers cells to deteriorate more quickly.

    Germaine de Capuccini have developed a scientific formula to interact with the genetics of the cells, encouraging certain cellular behaviours to be stimulated to train the skin to look and act younger. In the video below, the product development team show us what impact Epigenetics has on our skin and how Germaine de Capuccini are building this new-age science into their skincare.
