As far as night skincare routines go, I don’t have a set one. I’ve even been known to sleep in my makeup after a night out – a habit I’m trying to break. But now that I’ve got myself some Sleep Spa products from the Alessandra Steinherr X Primark Collection, I’ve decided it’s the perfect time to establish a night time skincare routine which let’s face it, will ensure radiant skin come morning.
It’s also the perfect time to try Primark’s skincare collaboration with the beauty editor Alessandra Steinherr because it’s been around for a while and now that the hype has died down, I can form my own opinion.
The collaboration collection comprises of 20 skincare goodies and these from the Sleep Spa range are my picks to help me kick start what will hopefully be a set and consistent night time routine.
The Sleep Spa range was described by Steinherr as ‘Made for Sundays’ but also work for any day of the week. It includes a One Step Night Cleanse, a Sleeping Face Mask, Every Night Eye Mask, and an Overnight Lip Mask.
I managed to get my hands on 3 out of the 4 products in the range for this review. My local Primark had run out of the One Step Night Cleanse, the last time I visited.
Sleeping Face Mask: this contains Anti-fatigue Prodizia complex and natural willow herb and chamomile so it relieves tired skin while you sleep to replenish and hydrate. It’s also calms and soothes tired skin so your skin looks fresh and well rested come morning. Simply apply after cleansing and toning skin. It’s very light so it gets absorbed very easily and doesn’t leave any residue.
Sleep Spa Every Night Eye Mask: I like this eye mask very much, mainly because it contains hyaluronic acid. It also smooths the eye area thanks to the infused willow herb and Chamomile, as well as reduce puffiness. A little dub under the eyes before applying the Sleeping Face Mask will ensure you wake up bright eyed and puff free.
The final product in the Sleep Spa range which I find the most delightful is the Overnight Lip Mask because like most people, while I’m diligent in my skincare, I’m not so much with my lip care. This Lip Mask takes care of that. It plumps and softens lips while you sleep.
So with these three products, a short but effective night time skincare routine can be established to ensure you wake up with radiant skin come morning.
Here’s my night time skincare routine steps:
- Simply cleanse skin
- Tone skin – I use a gentle, non-alcohol toner
- Dub or massage Sleep Spa Every Night Eye Mask under eyes
- Apply Sleeping Face Mask all over face
- Apply Overnight Lip Mask and hop into bed for a good night’s sleep.
That’s it, five simple steps for soft and plump skin and lips come morning.
There are other things I like about the Sleep Spa range and the Alessandra Steinherr X Primark Collection in general, one being the ingredients – they are good quality and take into account specific skin concerns.
Next is the fact that all products are fragrance free and vegan; and finally, they cost £5 or less in true Primark fashion.
The entire Alessandra Steinherr X Primark Collection is available at your local Primark
