Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil is incredible! I can, hand on heart swear by this little magical potion and credit it for saving my skin this winter. How? Well, first the science: powered by an impressive list of super ingredients such as Kalahari oil which is derived from the seed of the Kalahari melon used by South Africans for centuries as a moisturiser and protection against the sun, this multi –tasking oil is rich in essential fatty acids and it’s regenerating properties help to strengthen cell walls keeping skin supple. And as if that wasn’t enough, it is high in Vitamin E which helps protect against the damage of free radicals, a key factor in pre-mature ageing, tick, tick, tick.
Next on the list is Mogongo oil, another natural sun block and also rich in Vitamin E. It helps to nourish and rejuvenate damaged skin. If these two ingredients aren’t enough to make you run out and buy a bottle, this night oil also contains omega rich Baobab, Hibiscus for it’s antioxidant properties and Kigelia Africana for firming, topped up with essential oils: Lavender, Rose and Neorli. This concoction of supercharged ingredients are designed to work in harmony to repair your skin whilst you sleep. The results? Hydrated skin and a youthful glow by the morning, #IActuallyDidWakeUpLikeThis.
The Aurelia Night oil is the first thing I reach for when my skin starts playing up, or when the weather switches to arctic like conditions which it did recently. I use it after washing my face and before my moisturiser twice a week and 3 or four times a week when it needs that intensive boost of TLC. I love the ritual of applying it, just a few drops from the built-in pipette is all you’ll need. It sinks in pretty much instantly and the calming essential oils smell amazing and helps me to relax, just what you need before you catch those precious Zzzz’s. .
As with all Aurelia Probiotic skincare products there are absolutely no parabens, phthalates or any other less desirable ingredients. I’ve been using this night oil for about 4 months and as a beauty writer I will come across many more night oils but this little gem will be a permanent fixture on my night stand, it’s totally legit.
