You know you’re on to a good product when you a) admire the packaging each time you go to use it b) make audible noises of enjoyment when applying it and c) look around to see if anyone heard those audible noises of enjoyment.
The No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture cream from This Works may or may not make me do rudie noises like that episode of Friends where Phoebe was massaging Monica, but thankfully, it’s just me and Bailey in the house and he’s not too bothered. All he knows is that his mammy wakes up each morning with plump, hydrated skin and is a happy lady.
Designed to help detoxify your skin from glycotoxins as a result of stress and lack of sleep, the No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture cream is by far one of the most intensely hydrating and nourishing cream I’ve ever tried. By turning these glycotoxins into lactic acid, something your body can dispose of, and with the addition of Hyaluronic Acid which plumps and hydrates the skin, it promises to transform your skin overnight. But does it? The answer is yes. Yes, yes, yes! Now I’m channelling Meg Ryan from When Harry Met Sally. A little goes a long way with this thick, luxurious cream. The Persian Silk Tree Extract helps tackle signs of fatigue when you sleep and if you’re someone who’s not a great sleeper, you need all the help you can get. I’ve been sleeping like a baby since I started using the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works, so that in combination with my No Wrinkles Midnight Moisture, well, I’ve never looked as well rested! I filmed my October favourites video that will be up shortly and spoke about this cream and even now, I’m finding it hard to describe properly how my skin feels after I’ve applied it. I like to take a little of the cream and warm it between my fingers before massaging it into my skin. Within minutes it’s absorbed completely, leaving no residue behind, but here’s the thing, my skin actually feels noticeably different. Hydrated and plumped. I’ve never tried a cream that has made such an immediate difference to my skin and each morning, I wake up to revived skin that most days, doesn’t even need a day time moisturiser.
This is love folks. We’re talking Holy Grail status and as much as it pains me to say it, it’s taken over from Origins Night A Mins cream as my favourite night time moisturiser. Now, it’s €58 and I know, that’s spendy. I was given this to try and I’m telling you now I’ll be purchasing this myself when I run out. 100% guaranteed. With skincare, when you find something you love like this, it makes me not want to even try other night creams as I don’t see how it can be any better. I know this is two months early but this is one of my top 13 products of 2013.
