As little girls we’ve all had fairy tale dreams and wishes of being Sleeping Beauty. Lying on a bed, surrounded with roses, birds tweeting a soulful melody in the back ground, while Prince Charming leans in and awakens you from a deep sleep. I met my Prince Charming a few years ago, so that has been ticked off my list, but the Sleeping Beauty part, well that was non-existent, UNTIL… Sound Sleep Cocoon, from Dermalogica.
What is the Sound Sleep Cocoon?
I have always been a light sleeper, but since having Hudson, I try and sleep deeply whenever I can get a snooze in. Some nights are great and some nights it feels as if Huds has been possessed and will wake up every couple of minutes. So when I do get some sleep, I want a miracle cream on my face to give me that well rested b*tch face the next morning. You know what I mean right? That effortless look, where you don’t have to cake on the concealer to hide the dark circles under your eyes, or any breakouts. I tend to get break outs if I do not get some proper sleep. A few weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of a new Dermalogica product called Sound Sleep Cocoon. It was interesting to find out that 45% of the world’s population was affected by sleep problems. Not a great sleeper? well that can also lead to dull skin, fine lines and speeds up the aging process. As, queens, we do not want the above to happen.
Dermalogica’s new Sound Sleep Cocoon is a transformative night gel-cream. This revitalizing night gel-cream works with the skin’s natural overnight repair and recovery process. Enriched with active ingredients the Sound Sleep Cocoon gel nourishes the skin and transforms your skin, to glow by night. You are probably asking where the Sleeping in Sleeping Beauty part comes in. Well, the Sound Sleep Cocoon contains motion-activated essential oils to sooth ones senses with aromatherapy which in turn promotes deep restful sleep.
Tamarind seed extract creates a nourishing cocoon of comfort for softer, more hydrated skin while encapsulated, motion-activated French-lavender essential oil (with Sandalwood and Patchouli) work all night to promote deep, restful sleep for healthier-looking skin by morning. Other key ingredients include Persian Silk-tree extract which reduces signs of skin fatigue and restores vitality while Wu-Zhu-Yu extract provides visibly radiant skin by the a.m.
The benefits of Sound Sleep Cocoon
- Visibly increases radiance by morning.
- Reduces signs of skin fatigue and restores vitality.
- Promotes deep, restful sleep for healthier-looking skin.
The circular packaging uses a twist pump function to release the product. Did you know that some essential oils in beauty products can cause oxidation if exposed to oxygen? The above packaging prevent this from happening with the Sleep Sound Cocoon. The product is definitely travel safe, as you don’t have to worry about leakage onto your clothes and its light weight as well.
A 50 ml container retails for R1295, which gives you 95 uses of the product and roughly about three months of using it.
I have said this before and I will reiterate it again. You have to invest in your skin, as its the only one you have. I love the lightweight consistency of the product and that it easily adsorbs into my skin. My sense of smell instantly awakens by the essential oils, in a soothing and relaxing manner. For the few hours of sleep I get, I am in my skin restorative cocoon. I have definitely noticed that my skin feels and looks so much better in the mornings. The only time that I do use concealer is if I had forgotten to use the product the night before. All you have to do is smooth the product over face and neck as the last step of your nighttime regimen, over toners and targeted treatments. Allow the Sound Sleep Cocoon to do its job overnight.
