Imagine if you could bust blemishes and nourish your skin while you slept at night? Wouldn't that be the dream (excuse the terrible pun)? Well the newest Witch Skincare product aims to do just that
- Witch Skincare Overnight Clearing Serum...
"Witch Skincare Overnight Clearing Serum; ideal for those with sensitive and spot-prone skin. The powerful serum, formulated to minimise breakouts during the night, also works to help prevent future blemishes from surfacing. The oil-free formula is visibly hydrating, helping to leave skin radiant and clear when you wake up. As well as containing Witch Skincare’s signature witch hazel extract to clear and contract pores, the formula is rich in vitamin B3 (niacinamide), renowned for its moisturising benefits and ability to promote an even skin tone while you sleep."
If you are familiar with Witch Skincare products you will know that the vast majority have a slightly medicinal scent - this is no different and is due to the addition of natural Witch Hazel Oil. I was pleasantly surprised by the texture of the Witch Skincare Overnight Clearing Serum: light, silky and on par with an expensive serum in terms of consistency. It quickly absorbs into the skin without irritation feels instantly hydrating and does not clog my pores (something I have to be pretty vigilant with as I am prone to black heads - what a lovely image) nor will it overwhelm oily skin or further dry out dry/dehydrated complexions. It is pretty clever, seemingly it does dry out blemishes - speeding up the skins natural recovery process without irritating the surrounding skins natural moisture balance.
As with any blemish aimed product to expect this to be the solution to all your skin care woes is over stretching. If like myself you are prone to cystic break outs this will not do anything for you or said problem but for those annoying little white heads I do find it clears them up fairly quickly compared to leaving them to their own devices. I can't fully comment on the redness aspect as my skin is fairly even and dull in tone but the Witch Skincare Overnight Clearing Serum does make the surrounding skin around blemishes seem less angry and inflamed. You can use this nightly to prevent breakouts from occurring or use this as an if and when treatment to speed up the healing process. You can use it as a solo product or underneath your usual night cream should you wish.
