Guest Post: Top 3 Night Time Skincare Treats

The lovely Sophia from Tattooed Tea Lady kindly offered to write this guest post for me all about her favourite overnight skincare products. If you haven't already checked out her blog make sure you do, I'm a huge fan of her honest and detailed posts!

Hey everyone, my name is Sophia and I run my own little blog Tattooed Tealady. I’m super passionate about beauty so that’s what predominately features over on Tattooed Tealady, but I often post lifestyle posts and some plus size fashion OOTD posts too. I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Natalie here on Floral Republic, a local Nottingham blogger like myself, and today I am going to be sharing with you my Top 3 Night Time Skincare Treats.

First up is probably my favourite eye creams of all the different brands I have tried. The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye is incredibly soothing, intensely hydrating and leaves a soft as silk, cooled sensation on the delicate under eye skin. It’s made great improvements to the pigmentation around my eyes, ridding my dark bags and reducing the puffiness I sometimes find when I wake in the mornings. The skin around my eyes also continues to feel lovely throughout the day, I find my morning eye care products sink in better and my makeup goes on more flawlessly without any embarrassing creasing under eye concealers. I would never replace this now; it’s my Holy Grail night time eye cream. You can read my full review of the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye for more in-depth thoughts on this wonder eye product. You can find Kiehl’s in department stores, in their flagship stores and over on the Kiehl’s website. The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye comes in a 15ml tube and sells for £24.50.

I follow the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye with the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. The partner product to the eye cream, the Midnight Recovery Concentrate has to be one of the most amazing oils I have ever used. Nothing makes my skin feel like this oil does, it is absolutely wonderful and a must-have product for any skincare addict. The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate is paraben-free and with 99.8% naturally derived ingredients, this miracle working little oil will leave your skin feeling as smooth and soft as silk, plump, fresh and radiant and with a beautiful natural glow. With ingredients such as evening primrose, a blend of essential oils, squalane and lavender, this oil has an incredibly calming and relaxing scent; in fact it’s one of my favourite skincare scents, it’s just so soothing. I pop a couple of drops of this oil all over my skin and let it settle for a moment or two before morning on to a serum. You can read my full review of the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate for a more in-depth review. The Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate comes in a beautiful blue glass 30ml bottle and sells for £36, available on the Kiehl’s website and in-store.

My final favourite night time treat is from a brand whose products are just absolutely phenomenal, Antipodes. The Antipodes Joyous Serum Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum* works to restore collagen in the skin, deliver natural radiance, purify and protect. It’s an oil based serum which relives tired, dry and even sensitive skins, leaving you looking radiant with a really beautiful glow. I pop a few drops of this on before my night time moisturiser and it feels lovely on the skin, not too heavy, not too light, a lovely scent of kiwi pulls through. It has Himalayan goji which delivers up to 19 amino acids which replenish protein at a cellular level, red raspberry seed oil works with New Zealand blackcurrant, a rich source of essential fats, along with hibiscus flower and kiwi oil all create a pretty powerful team working on your skin overnight. When I don’t use this serum I can see my skin feels slightly rougher in texture and dull the next day, which shows how much this beauty works. I’ve really recommend it for anyone who has lacklustre skin. Antipodes is available in department stores, on Feel Unique and the Antipodes website. The Antipodes Joyous Serum Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum comes in a real apothecary feel glass 30ml bottle with pipette and sells for £24.95 (its £36 on the Feel Unique website)
