A Do It All Night Cream For Everyone

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight

Maybe you are super organised, maybe you don't crawl into bed hoping that you have removed both your eyebrows, fumbling around in the dark for the closest lotion or potion your hand lands upon. If you are a more organised person than I, congratulations you are nailing life; if not, worry not because La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight have the very solution for you. An affordable, ultra nourishing night ready moisturiser that doubles up as an eye cream, need I say more?

As with a lot of La Roche-Posay products, La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight is targeted at easily sensitized and irritated complexions, meaning that the formulation is super gentle and ideal for most, if not all skin types. Rather pleasingly La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight contains no preservatives, parabens, fragrance, alcohol, colorants or lanolin so that along with comforting easily aggravated complexions, it will not clog the pores nor encourage blemishes to form - great if like myself acne is something you have struggled with.

The core ingredients are Neurosensine, which is probably best thought of as a topical anti-histamine - it targets the skin's natural irritation mechanisms, encouraging your complexion to protect against inflammation and general irritation before it as much as begins. This is along with Niacinimide (a form of vitamin B) to encourage moisture retention; Carnosine (amino acids) and Vitamin A; both of which offer anti-ageing benefits to help prevent premature ageing, and to some degree plump out existing lines and signs of ageing.

Typically I do avoid cream-like formulations for facial use as my oily complexion can become a little overwhelmed, as such I am fussy and very seldom do I use night cream. I of course moisturise before falling into a deep slumber but it is normally with a serum, oil or both - La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight is one of the very exceptions. Instead of a heavy, slow to absorb texture that is par for course with night creams, La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight boasts a light, almost lotion-like consistency that is quickly absorbs, cools, calms and deeply hydrates the entire face. Yes, that does include the eye area; I'll be entirely honest and say that no I don't use this as an eye cream. Personally I prefer something a little more heavy duty but if you find yourself pushed for time or patience, and or space within your travel bag, then this is the perfect solution. As the general formulation is aimed at sensitive skin and features both anti-ageing properties - as well as offering a protective moisture barrier - it will smooth out the under eye without stinging the eyes.

If you are new to night cream, want a do-it-all solution or simply have easily stressed out skin, I can not think of a more perfect addition for your nightstand - and all for under £20 too.
