What Is Night Cream?

A night cream is a moisturiser that you should apply to your skin as the last step of your evening skincare routine. The formula of a night cream is often richer and creamier than its daytime counterpart, that sinks into skin while you sleep, allowing your skin to absorb and reap the benefits of it’s hydrating, moisturising, nourishing ingredients!

Night creams often have a thicker texture to help lock in moisture, like Charlotte’s decadent cream-elixir Magic Night Cream, which feeds your skin hour by hour as you sleep with her matrix of ingredients that includes Plant Stem Cells, Time Released Retinol, Co Enzyme Q10 and Vitamin E. As Charlotte says, it’s a comfort blanket for your skin and beauty sleep in a cream elixir!

Benefits of Night Cream

Your skin needs a night-specific moisturiser because, in sleep mode, your skin functions differently. Your body temperature peaks while you sleep, meaning skin warms and can lose moisture more easily. Secondly, your skin goes into repair mode at night, an intense period of recovery from the damage caused during the day. Things like stress, pollution and exposure to blue light from the sun and digital devices all play a role in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other imperfections. This is why night cream is a must!

The perfect night cream will target a range of skin concerns including dryness, dullness, and the visible signs of aging. Charlotte’s Magic Night Cream is an intense, rich formula to support your skin with potent, research-powered ingredients to target signs of dehydration, smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave skin looking bouncy, dewy and youthful by morning!

Magic Night Cream contains a matrix of research-powered, supercharged ingredients! Winter Daphne Stem Cell Extract moisturises to leave skin looking revitalised, Time-Released Retinol Molecules creates firmer-looking skin, Red Algae Marigel offers barrier-strengthening and soothing properties, while Co Enzyme Q10 supports natural repair and regeneration for healthy-looking skin.

When to Apply Night Cream

How to Apply Night Cream

Start by applying half a pea-sized amount of Magic Night Cream moisturiser all over your face and neck. Massage thoroughly for 3-5 minutes, using small circular motions from the center, working outwards using your fingertips.
