Beauty Sleep Elixir is the new skincare oil from UK brand, Beuti Skincare. It has a 100% natural blend of 14 plant-based oils, chosen to target ageing bought on by inflammation, i.e. 'imflammaging'. This can be caused by every day exposure to pollution, sun damage and even over-exfoliation.
The Beauty Sleep Elixir is said to be used by Kate Middleton, Rita Ora, Emma Watson and Iggy Azalea! With all these bragging rights, I just had to put it to the test...
The blend of oils includes a Caribbean coral extract which is a powerful anti-inflammatory, as it neutralises the enzyme responsible for skin ageing, plus a sandalwood nut kernel oil to help prevent collagen and elastin break down. These are then combined with a generous amount of camellia oil, chia seed oil, bitter cherry seed oil, strawberry seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, blueberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil, raspberry seed oil, seabuckthorn fruit berry oil, sandalwood oil, lavender herb oil, geranium flower oil, neroli flower oil and capric trglyceride from coconut.
Beauty Sleep Elixir smells gorgeous, slightly on the lavender side, and glides on really well. With an all natural ingredient list, this oil suited my sensitive skin perfectly and kept it feeling soft and moisturised all day when worn under my usual CC cream. It made a great base as it was absorbed into my skin quickly, so my makeup didn't slide off halfway through the morning.
It's also wonderful to apply a drop of the oil at night, after cleansing skin, in order to restore tired and dull looking skin while reducing redness around blemishes. It left my skin skin looking much brighter and clearer the next day.
A lot of people are often put off using oil based products on oily, blemish prone skin, but in my experience, the right blend of oils can often help to re-balance the skin by keeping skin hydrated. Many lotions and creams also tend to sit on top of the skin, where they can slide off, reducing the their effectiveness, or clog pores, causing blemishes. For these reasons, I would recommend anyone of any skin type to include an natural oil based product in their regular skin care routine. Beuti Skincare's Beauty Sleep Elixir is a great one to try!
The Beauty Sleep Elixir costs £42 for 30ml. It's available to buy from www.lookfantastic.com.

Since the 11th of May 2011, I have gone from being obese to healthy, rescued myself from diabetes and hypertension and taught myself how to cook along the way. I've gone from being the teen that bunked off PE lessons, to the adult whose hobbies include lifting weights, yoga, dance and mixed martial arts.
My main rule is to live a lifestyle that's fad-free! I encourage everyone to stay well away from faddy diets that could potentially cause more health problems than they solve.
It's all about creating a sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle change.
