8 Beauty Products Working The Night Shift!

We can no longer use ‘lack of time’ as an excuse not to look after skin, thanks to products that work as you sleep. There’s an army of masks and creams packed with ingredients to nourish, protect, brighten, plump and improve the overall appearance of skin and you don’t have to do any of the hard work. Just lay back and let these work their magic.

8 Beauty Products Working The Night Shift!

Just make sure you thoroughly cleanse the skin before applying these to maximise their full potential!!


Rich in nutrients, this cream is fast absorbing and nourishing. The oils condition, balance and feed the skin providing a radiant glow.


A gel containing both salicylic and glycolic acid for exfoliation, deep pore cleansing and reducing inflammation. Niacinamide evens skin tone and improves skin elasticity.

A mask but not as you know it, this lightweight lotion hydrates and conditions as you sleep and can be layered to increase the moisture in the skin.

You can read more on this and other Pixi hydrating additions in my previous post


A light gel formula infused with botanicals and fruit extracts to protect the skin from free radical damage, Mulberry extract evens skin tone making it appear brighter whilst glycolic acid works on the surface to smooth fine lines and improve the skin’s texture.



A product that’s created a lot of noise since its launch, this contains lactic acid to slough away dead skin cells revealing a brighter and more radiant complexion, as well as reducing the appearance fine lines and wrinkles.

It has anti-ageing properties, evens discolouration and hydrates.

You can read my thoughts on the Sunday Riley Good Genes and other products in the range and see it featured in my 3 Glow Getters For Radiant Skin post.


This one is a serious multi-tasker and one that gives immediate results. Containing both BHAs and AHAs this works on both the appearance of the skin as well as cleansing the pores tackling blemishes and acne prone skin. Vitamins A + C work to brighten and protect whilst sodium hyaluronate hydrates.

Forget the mechanical exfoliators, this cream is grain free, containing AHAs to improve the surface layer of the skin by gentle and even exfoliation, so over time lines and wrinkles appear reduced, skin looks brighter and discolouration faded.

Another cult product, this one is packed with vitamins, minerals and peptides to protect, nourish, rejuvenate and plump. The ingenious Hydro Mineral Transference™ allows the ingredients to penetrate the skin to maximise its potential. Vitamin E neutralises the cell damaging free radicals whilst vitamin A from the wild carrot extract promotes healthy cells and is an antioxidant.

Have you tried any of these night shifters?

    I love the Nip and Fab glycolic range, the overnight gel included. If my skin is a bit dull/ spotty I put this on and it’s a lot better when I wake up. What do you think of the Superdrug one? I keep looking at it and wondering if it’s any good considering how cheap it is, it’s on buy one get one free at the moment as well, Em x

    • If you get blemishes try the ones with salicylic too, it’s great for fighting bacteria and deep pore cleansing. I was actually impressed with the Superdrug one, it’s a bit like a liquid gel but not sticky. My skin felt super soft the next day! there’s other Superdrug products I’m using right now that are great also. I’ll have to write a review xx

  • Desperate to try the Sunday Riley stuff. Maybe after Christmas. Currently I’m working on the Indeed Labs retinol reface serum and it is dreamy. My skin is so soft.. Contemplating putting it everywhere.. Arms, feet.. Seems excessive and expensive, but Cleopatra bathed in donkey milk, and really, I can’t see how I’m any different.

    • I didn’t like it at first so it took a couple of uses to like it, I want to try the Indeed Labs range.

      Yes absolutely! Fit for a Queen and all that 🙂

      • How long did it take the Sunday Riley stuff to work for you? Its tricky throwing down that much cash for something that you can’t guarantee results from. I went through about £200 worth of Kiehls stuff used it religiously and got nothing out of it. Not that I expect an instant result, obviously.. But something. Very tempted by Luna by SR.
