If you have ever thought to yourself, “I wish I could get a facial while I sleep”, I have good new for you, you can. Well, kind of. Today I am reviewing the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial; a face cream that is a hybrid of a moisturizer and a mask that is meant to hydrate, brighten, and re-texturize your skin while you sleep.
I don’t know about you, but there are days when I go to sleep with skin that looks tired, exhausted, and looking like its been chasing kids all day. So when a skincare product says something like “Brightening Sleeping Facial”, I get a little excited. However, regardless of titles and claims, we need to know if the Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial actually works. So let’s get started.
Benefit Claims: This is a nighttime moisturizer with a soufflé like texture. It helps to make your skin brighter, improve fine lines, and add luminosity to your complexion.
Key Ingredients: One of the key ingredients to this night cream is Wild Rose Oil; It helps by evening out the skin tone, repairing, moisturizing, and adding a layer of protection to your skin while you sleep. Then there is Stabilized Vitamin C that helps improve discoloration and Imperta Cylindrica Root Extract, which helps to moisturize and regulate the water in your skin.
Price Tag: $48.00
First Impressions: When I first opened this night cream, I was immediately greeted by the scent of rose. But what peaked my curiosity the most initially was the texture of this face cream. It truly does feel like a soufflé, and you barely need any to cover your entire face. So, first impression was a pretty good one.
Product Claims and Experience: After a two-week period of using this product consistently, I definitely noticed that my skin was more illuminated. This product has stabilized Vitamin C in it which helps to fight free radicals, exfoliate the skin, and prevent discoloration. With that said, if you have an extensive amount of brown pigmented spots that really bother you, I would speak to a dermatologist and get on a prescription strength product with hydroquinone.
As far as how my skin felt in the morning, it was hydrated, but not overly done. I don’t like waking up with my skin feeling like a grease factory, and with this skincare product, my face just felt balanced.
Overall Thoughts and Opinions
For me, the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial is a great addition to my skincare routine. I love how refreshed my skin felt and that it really helped to leave my skin hydrated and glowing.
I have to say though that I was a little disappointed that this Sleeping Facial didn’t come with a steamer and a face massage. That was a bummer.
Who Should Buy This: While this product says it’s good for any skin type, I personally think it would be best suited for someone with dry and dehydrated skin.
Have a fab day!
