I don’t normally do this, so I hope you will forgive me, just this once. It’s exceedingly rare that I feature a skincare product after less than a month (minimum) of use, but this little bottle of golden elixir, Beuti Skincare’s Beauty Sleep Elixir appears to be quite magical.
If you’ve been a Get Lippie reader for a while, you’ll know I’m prone to both sensitivity and redness. My redness is usually caused by inflammation from my various sensitivities, or vaso-dilation caused by heat, or factors such as too much sugar and/or alcohol, rather than a specific skin condition such as rosacea. I am always on the lookout for products that either promise to protect my skin from external irritation, or to help heal it when it’s at its reddest and most uncomfortable – some of you might have noticed that I use a lot of anti-oxidant serums to protect my skin. Beuti Skincare‘s recent press release mentioned “anti-inflammaging” (a quite frankly horrific phrase, but …), meaning their products are both anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing, so I was intrigued to try.
Beuti Skincare’s Beauty Sleep Elixir is a blend of 14 natural plant oils (and it’s low on essential oils, too, which is good, as my skin finds them highly irritating), and is bright, bright orange in the bottle from a good dose of beta-carotene from the various seed oils inside. The full ingredient list, which is both 100% natural, and 98% organic, comprises:
Chia seed oil
Bitter cherry seed oil
Strawberry seed oil
Pomegranate seed oil
Blueberry seed oil
Cranberry seed oil
Sandalwood nut seed oil
Raspberry seed oil
Seabuckthorn fruit berry oil
Lavender herb oil
Geranium flower oil
Neroli flower oil
Capric triglyceride from coconut
Sea whip extract (extracted from coral)
Sea Whip extract is a known anti-inflammatory, and lavender and neroli are both known for their soothing properties. I had some inflammation recently (in fact, I spent a couple of days in the office last week flushed redder than a stop sign thanks to a bad cosmetic choice or two), and I chose to set aside my usual soothing products and try Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir for a night or two instead. I’m very glad I did. Skin looks instantly less reddened when you use an orange-yellow beta-carotene rich oil, as the deep gold instantly counteracts redness in the same optical way a yellow powder does, so you’ll instantly feel and look better. Used overnight, I woke up to find that not only had my beacon-esque redness disappeared completely, but the under-skin bumps that are a signature of irritation on my skin had also completely gone.
This is unheard of for me in the first use of a healing product – I normally have to stick to a low-impact, low-active regime for at least a week or so in order to get rid of incipient irritation, even with tried and tested products. I was a little amazed. I’ve not been able to stop applying it to my face ever since. My skin is velvety smooth, and even and without even a hint of greasiness. The instructions say to use three pumps, but I’ve been using one or two at most. Can I call it love after less than a week of trials? It’s certainly been a whirlwind romance! I’m going to need a backup bottle already, I can tell.
You can buy Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir from Look Fantastic, (not an affiliate link) where it will cost £42. A bargain, in my eyes.
