25th May 2017

Sienna Miller chose windswept hair, pink lipstick and a glowing finish for the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Did you know that inadequate sleep can reduce skin’s ability to retain water and recover from environmental stresses, causing it to age prematurely with an increase in fine lines, uneven pigmentation and slackening of the skin? While there is no substitute for getting a good night’s sleep, these three serums are giving it their best shot.

1. FORMULA ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE SLEEP CREAM, €30

Why You Need It

Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream‘s miracle secret is that it will really make your skin look like you’ve had eight hours sleep, even if you haven’t. Really. Just don’t hold your breath while you try to get your hands on it – theres a whopping waitlist online of over 7,500 people, but for a miracle in a bottle at €30, you better hurry up and join the queue.

The Science Bit

Formula, Marks & Spencer’s signature skincare range, draws on over 20 years of expertise. Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream is an overnight solution packed with active ingredients and is clinically proven to transform your skin with 10 amazing benefits after just four weeks, banishing fatigued looking skin so you wake up to a more rested and younger looking complexion.

Employing PatcH20?, this latest innovation in skin moisturising forms a micro-matrix of hyaluronic acid and is loaded with an advanced moisturising complex, which is slowly released while you sleep to leave skin feeling nourished and appearing revived and radiant by morning.

Peptides work together to deliver firmer, more elastic skin while reducing wrinkles; Niacinamide brightens and reduces dark spots and natural oils of shea butter, marula oil, kukui oil and vitamin E deliver moisture and softness to the skin.
