Beauty and a good night’s sleep go hand in hand. Not getting enough in quantity or quality can lead to dark under eye circles, sallow skin and break-outs- no good! Moonlit Skincare is a company that loves their beauty sleep and creates products to help all of us get more of it.
Handmade in Bali, Indonesia the Midnight Shift oil is designed to nourish your skin while you sleep. This multi-purpose facial oil is formulated without common toxins and instead uses a variety of natural oils and extracts to target different skin care needs. I put this oil to the test overnight after applying some of my more intense exfoliating products and decided to use on it’s own to replace my regular moisturizer and facial oils (what you need to know about facial oils in this post.) I was pleasantly surprised that this was all I needed to rehydrate and soothe my skin.
The oil itself is clear in colour and absorbs quickly for a non-greasy feel. The instructions on the bottle are to put a dime sized amount in the palm of your hand and rub to heat before applying to the face and neck. I loved this tip which makes the liquid feel extra soothing and brings out the oil’s natural lavender scent- known to promote a more restful sleep by increasing alpha brain waves and relaxing the nervous system.
On top of the Midnight Shift oil’s obvious hydration benefits, a few other star ingredients work together to create glowing skin in the morning, including ginseng oil to brighten and papaya extract to encourage cell turnover. Not only is this a product I can get over board with because of it’s efficacy but their sustainable and socially conscious production practices are incredible! Their story is truly admirable and worth a read. If you’re not ready to order a full size bottle of oil (which is quite affordable, by the way) there an 14-day trial sets available for purchase to make sure you and your skin love it.
