When one of my favourite serums by Estee Lauder (you know the one…) bit the dust, I had a choice – try the Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial or repurchase the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I decided to opt for something new and headed over to the Sarah Chapman section in Space NK. The Skinesis Overnight Facial fell into my basket in the usual “accidentally-on-purpose” fashion and I’ve been giving it a good whirl over the past month.
Considering I spent hours of my life mulling over which serum to get, it feels pretty ironic that the results of the two are incredibly similar. They both have a plumping effect and leave the skin looking far more radiant and youthful that I feel when I roll out of bed at 7am. I apply this one after my cleanser/toner (depending on whether I feel like using a toner… It’s one of those steps) and then sandwich it all in with my moisturiser. In terms of texture it feels like a very fine oil – almost like a serum/oil hybrid (after writing this I actually checked the Space NK website and “serum-oil” is actually in the product description – 10 points to me), it sinks in quickly and smells like there’s a party on your face.
It’s safe to say I like this one a lot, I pop it on every other evening and try not to think about the £45 price tag… It’s worth it for a glowing complexion right?
