A Couple of Bedside Heroes

There was a time when I'd hop into bed still with make-up on, or if I could be bothered I'd get it all off quickly with a face wipe; fast forward a few years and my night-time skincare routine fills me with possibly more joy than it probably should, and it's really down to a couple of products that are making all the difference to my skin.

Trilogy are probably most well known amongst the beauty blogging community for it's Rosehip Oil, but it's really the Rosapene Night Cream that stands out to me. I've been using this since around Christmas, and it's possibly my favourite night moisturiser. This is packed full of some of the best anti-oxidant oils; rosehip, almond, avocado, acai, with Goji berry and Manuka honey, to really aid the skin replenish and regenerate over night. Whether it's dry patches, blemishes, or dullness, this little pot sorts out any ailments overnight.

It's a quite a nice thick cream which feels so soothing and relaxing to apply, and a little really goes a long way. Which is good, because at £28.50 it's not cheap, but I've been using a small pot since Christmas and I'm only just at the bottom, so it should last quite a few months.

After my Botanics Organic Facial Oil running out, I decided to have a little upgrade to a more expensive version. I've fallen in love with the Antipodes Manuka Honey mask, so I thought I'd try out their Divine Face Oil. It comes in a little glass bottle with a handy pipette applicator, so I put a little drop on each area of my face and massage into the skin. Again this has wonderful ingredients inside, such as rosehip and avocado oil to really hydrate and replenish the skin overnight. It feels so lovely working this into the skin, and whilst it doesn't sink in immediately, it doesn't feel tacky or uncomfortable on the skin. Sadly the scent isn't the nicest, but the effect it has on my skin is so worthwhile, the scent doesn't bother me.

I really don't know how they do it, but both these products make the biggest difference to my skin. Blemishes are soothed, redness is reduced, and my skin looks so much brighter. I wouldn't be without either of them, and the days of just removing make-up and being done are long gone, it's serums, oils and moisturisers all the way for me now.

Have you tried either of these? What are your bedside heroes?

    Really great selection!

    I really enjoy using this facial oil, super nice results:


  2. there was a time when i used to do the same and using a make-up wipe to remove me make-up at all was be going out of my way! now i can't even imagine not having a proper skincare routine! i don't know what i was thinking for so long.

    i love antipodes, i've got a few of their products and haven't been disappointed by anything so far. i don't know how i'd get on with their face oil though, i tried a rosehip oil few a few months a while ago before realising it was the thing that was breaking me out terribly and it's scarred me (literally) and made me not want to use anything too rosehip heavy again, but it may have just been the brand i was using or the potency of it, so maybe a mixed oil like the antipodes offering wouldn't affect my skin so badly. anyway, glad to hear rosehip is working wonders for your skin, it seems to work wonders for a lot of people!

  9. Oh, that's a shame! Perhaps you could ask for a little sample as you have some issues with the ingredients and give it a little try :)
