Lavender and Geraniums. A floral breeze, a soothing scent … is that the smell of Spring in the air?
Nah mate. It’s my latest cream, the Dreamy Sleep night cream by Elemis. Gotcha…hahaha..aha..ah…..hmm.
SO. After my review of the Softly Softly Day Cream, it was only natural that I would venture into the Night territory. And it did not disappoint!
Marketed as an overnight replenishing cream, the Dreamy Sleep night cream is designed to make your skin look like you’ve had your full 8 hours by intensely moisturising and nourishing your skin to reveal a radiant face in the morning.
What’s in it?
Following the Elemis philosophy, it’s derived from natural ingredients, combining the power of Nature with Science. Pow.
Ingredients-wise, the key workers here are blackcurrant seed oil and barley extract which are meant to improve your skin texture and increase smoothness.
Like it’s sister, the day cream, it smells absolutely delicious! I love the scent. Slightly sweeter than the day cream and less lavender. What a treat.
Normally, I find night creams like this too heavy. The need to replenish lost moisture in the skin sometimes results in a cream which becomes greasy overnight. Shiny shiny.
I used to use the Nivea Daily Essentials Night Cream for Combination Skin but I’d end up with oily, shiny skin in the morning. BOO.
On the other hand, the Dreamy Sleep cream is light and fluid– very easy to smooth across the whole of my face without dragging and not too heavy. It’s very refreshing– I’d say more suited to oily skins and those who like a light-weight moisturiser.
Probably not the one for skins in need of serious TLC, but a nice little luxury treat for a normal/combi chick like me.
At £22, it’s hardly cheap but the quality reflects the price and it does last ages. I love using expensive creams, they feel far more luxurious and you appreciate them so so much more when you know they’re expensive
