Normally, subtleties are lost on me when it comes to visual things. I can pick up subtleties in conversations and body language just fine but when it comes to fine details, noticing changes is not my strong point. For example, my computer is running slow, my husband puts some new part in it and proudly announces my machine is now 2x faster, do I love it? In truth? I can never tell…and this has been a problem for me in the past when reviewing some skincare products…yeah there might have been a change after using the product but I can’t tell, which is why I have to ask my husband to examine my skin before I start using a product and when I’ve finished and use his views to help me write my review! Unless there’s a drastic change I’m virtually unable to spot it. Alpha-H Liquid Gold is a good example of that, I saw no signs of plump gorgeous skin the mornings after use. It doesn’t necessarily mean there wasn’t any improvement though…
I’m waffling. But there is a point to the waffling. When I agreed to review the Overnight Repair Mask, I wasn’t expecting to see much, if any, change to my skin. The mask is £46 for 50ml and you can use it in two ways, you can either pop it on your skin for a couple of hours, or you can leave it on overnight. The first time I used it I just kept it on for a couple of hours, but since then I’ve used it overnight a couple of times a week.
I’m just going to say woah! This is brilliant. When I get up in the mornings and wash it off my skin is plump, glowy and just looks very obviously improved. And the point of all the previous waffling is that if I can spot the difference then it must be quite a marked result. It’s everything I thought the Liquid Gold was going to do for my skin. Lines are less obvious, my skin looks plump and noticeably smoother. The results last probably a couple of days on me before I start itching to apply again but the recommendation is that you use it only once or twice a week and so I stick to that. It’s a beautiful product and you use very little. I apply a fairly thin layer and while I read in bed it dries (although not hard or mask like really – it’s quite comfortable) and then you wash off in the morning.
Fantastic and although I do find the price galling it’s one of those things I’m going to end up selling my perfume on Ebay to buy more of when my tube runs out. Fantastic, a product that really delivers. Love it.
That said, I’ve found a night moisturiser that helps me achieve a similar effect on a daily basis so expect a review of that soon. Using the two together, my skin is looking pretty glowy and happy (although still congested which is why I’m now starting yet another regime!).
The Overnight Repair Mask is available from www.aromatherapyassociates.com and coming in October is the first flagship store and treatment rooms in Knightsbridge – I’m only sorry I’m so far away.
