The Overnight Facial

When one of my favourite serums by Estee Lauder (you know the one…) bit the dust, I had a choice – try the Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial or repurchase the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I decided to opt for something new and headed over to the Sarah Chapman section in Space NK. The Skinesis Overnight Facial fell into my basket in the usual “accidentally-on-purpose” fashion and I’ve been giving it a good whirl over the past month.

Considering I spent hours of my life mulling over which serum to get, it feels pretty ironic that the results of the two are incredibly similar. They both have a plumping effect and leave the skin looking far more radiant and youthful that I feel when I roll out of bed at 7am. I apply this one after my cleanser/toner (depending on whether I feel like using a toner… It’s one of those steps) and then sandwich it all in with my moisturiser. In terms of texture it feels like a very fine oil – almost like a serum/oil hybrid (after writing this I actually checked the Space NK website and “serum-oil” is actually in the product description – 10 points to me), it sinks in quickly and smells like there’s a party on your face.

It’s safe to say I like this one a lot, I pop it on every other evening and try not to think about the £45 price tag… It’s worth it for a glowing complexion right?

    Would love to try this, heard so many good things! Sarah Chapman is a brand I would like to venture into!

    £45 may be just a tad too steep for me but nevertheless, it sounds lovely! Christmas list maybe? 😀

    Which do you prefer out of this and Estée Lauder? Been thinking about getting A.N.R

    Well, it may be expensive, but the whole bottle is cheaper than one decent facial, so not too bad when you think of it like that 🙂

    I'm really keen on trying this, especially since I was a fan of EL ANR–the price just got me and I couldn't be so dependent on it. It is ironic, though, that this one may beat it in price; oh, well. xo

    Sounds amazing but eek, £45 is so expensive, I'm worried I'd get addicted and have to keep repurchasing!

    Which do you prefer? I am squeezing the last drops out of my ANR and debating whether to purchase this or the Sarah Chapman! X

    I like to think of quality over quantity with skincare, it helps with the guilt 😉

    "it smells like there's a party on your face" haha, love it! This sounds amazing but I just don't think I can justify the price tag! 🙁

    I really want to try this product, but the fact that you said it's very similar to Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair makes me feel a little less anxious to get it.
    Might save my money for something else like the cleansing balm from the range or one of Omorvicza's new releases.

    I really want to try this but think I'll save it for when my EL ANR also bites the dust rather than have two similar products – really trying to cut down having loads of products that do the same job and actually declutter and use things up!
