Infused with Retinal (Vitamin A) and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), the ‘Ultimate A’ night cream shows results of reduced hyperpigmentation, redness and fine lines after only using it for a couple of days daily. 

The cream yellow in colour and has a lightweight consistency. And although the cream dries slower than normal and is a little sticky on the skin when dry. But when rinsed off the skin the following morning, my face felt hydrated and plump, presenting a more youthful look. I recommend this mask for dry skin types.

How to Use It:

After cleaning the face and applying your nightly serums, use 2-3 pumps to cover the entire face evenly. Gently massage the cream into the skin. In the morning, wash it off and feel the difference. 

Skin Physics ‘Dragon’s Blood Ultra Plumping Night Cream’ (RPR: $59.95)

The perfect finish to any nightly skincare routine, the ‘Dragon’s Blood night cream’ leaves the skin smooth and glowing. It has a moisturiser-like texture – silky and thick so, there’s no need to lather on a lot of product. 

The refreshing scent also stays on the skin after rinsed off the following day. The star ingredient is the hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a natural sugar in our skin which carries water, retaining moisture around bodies and joints. When put into skincare products, HA brings moisture to the skin helping give the face a ‘plump’ finish. 

How to Use It:

After cleansing the face, massage the cream onto the cream and let it sit and absorb for around 15 minutes. In the morning, rinse off well and continue with your regular skin routine. This cream can be used every night or just for occasional pamper evenings.

Packed with Native Australian Kakadu Plum (world’s richest source of natural Vitamin C), this product kept my face nice and hydrated, even after rinsing off the following morning.  I also loved the sweet pomegranate fragrance of the product too. 

How to Use It:

After doing your usual night skincare routine, with a generous amount, massage it gently onto the skin until the little orange spheres have perished. Be patient as it may take 10-15 minutes to dry completely. As an option, you can lock the mask in with a moisturiser on top. Leave it overnight and rinse of well in the morning as it can be a bit gooey when wet.

Neutrogena ‘Hydro & Youthful Boost Sleeping Mask (Hydrating & Smoothing)’ (RPR: $4.99)

This is an affordable yet strong overnight mask, which works like a treat. A little goes a long way with this product and it certainly delivers on what it promises – hydration and moisture. The ‘Youthful Boost Sleeping Mask’ is mixed with Hyaluronic acid and shea butter, creating a thick yet easy to apply texture spread amongst the face. After using several times, I noticed visible improvements – my skin is firmer and is glowing every morning. 

The ‘Hydro Boost Sleeping Mask’ doesn’t have shea butter, so the consistency is runnier but thick enough to stay on the face flawlessly. It also absorbs into the face quick, not leaving any residue on the pillow and instead leaves a smooth and hydrated face. 

These masks are ideal for travelling, and for that price, you can easily grab more than a few for your next holiday, so you can treat your skin nearly every night, whilst youre on vacay.
