M&S Beauty: FORMULA Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream

Did you know Marks and Spencer had its own skincare range? Called Formula it describes itself as being "From bespoke sensitive skin care and advanced anti-aging solutions to cutting-edge ingredients taken straight from the lab, find your skincare soulmate from our newly reformulated Formula collections".  Whether you want a day cream, night cream, a serum, cleanser, toner, eye cream, neck cream and so on, there is an incredible range to try.
M&S Beauty: FORMULA Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream
I love an overnight product, something I can put on to my skin and let it works its magic as I sleep.  I would love to be able to say that I get 8 hours sleep every single night, that my skin doesn't need any extra help, but in truth, I get around 5-6 hours sleep unless insomnia has kicked in and then I am awake every hour if I can eventually nod off.  So in an effort to ensure my skin looks good, feels good and I have little in the way of suitcases under my eyes, I have a night time skin care routine. We all know that the lack of sleep can cause so many issues for the skin, it is something most skin care experts will talk about and it is well worthy of listening to them as they explain just how important sleep is. Just like any other cell in your body, your skin cells take advantage of when you are asleep to repair and rejuvenate your skin, not giving your skin time to do this can lead to the moisture level in your skin being affected, your pH levels dropping and of course, those pesky dark circles appear.

The Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream is quite the cult product. When it launched it had rave review after rave review, it sold out everywhere and had a massive waiting list of people wanting to get their hands on this cream. It is described as being supercharged with anti-wrinkle peptides, moisturising hyaluronic acid and skin-brightening actives as well as shea butter, marula oil, kukui oil and Vitamin E.

The cream which smells just divines is not too thick a texture but it is incredibly rich in feel.  You literally need just a small amount of this cream to cover your face and neck and once it is applied, it doesn't sit on the surface of your skin, so it isn't going to ruin your pillowcase. The following morning, there is a slight chance that there will be some residue of the cream left which will need to be removed, but as I double cleanse anyway, so I would always ensure I did wash my face (ewww) the following morning.  That said, I am yet to find any of this cream not used on my skin. 

What I do love about this Sleep Cream is how my skin does feel after using.  I find that my skin goes through cycles of feeling dry and in need of moisture despite using face oils and masks, this is where this cream comes in really useful because it literally does leave my skin feeling softer and smoother to the touch, my lacklustre skin suddenly looks plump and radiant and just this week someone asked me what I was using to make my skin glow.

At £22 (here) it is amazing value for money and it gives some other well-known brands a real run for their money.  If you need a new night cream, then this is not one I would overlook, infact having used it, I am now keen to try even more from the range.
