You know when you get home – and you’re exhausted/you’ve had a ridiculously long work day and you just want to go ‘oomph’ and collapse on the sofa? This is the cream you need to take care of your face while you do just that.
This Works has been around for a few years now and I’ve always dabbled in and out of the range – this though, is lovely and will be a permanent addition to my collection. This is not for you if you are a 20-something with spots. The second ingredient is shea butter – but if you aren’t in that category, this is a beautiful cream.
Aqua (Water), Butyrospermum Parkii (shea butter), Simmondsia chinensis, Caprylic/CapricTriglyceride, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glycerol Stearate PEG100, Xantham Gum, Dimethicone, alpha Tocopherol, Triethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenyl ethyl alcohol, Rosa rubignosa (Rosehip oil), Oenethera biennis, Prodizia, Lactic acid, Retinol, Hexapeptide-3, Hyaluronic acid, Collagen Peptide – M2 Marine, ACE, Citrus aurantium flos, Lavandula angustifolia, Cymbopogon martini, Pelargonium graveolens, Rosa damascena.
It has retinol, peptides galore, lactic acid and hyaluronic acid – but it doesn’t feel at all like your typical anti-ageing night cream. I’ve been using oils overnight for years – this though, has snapped me back into using a night cream – and I’m really enjoying it. It’s luxurious, absorbs brilliantly – and my skin had a noticeable difference in the morning. Any cream that can do that for me gets the thumbs up.
Midnight Moisture is £46.00 and available online www.thisworks.com and at Space NK/Boots etc
