My skin seems to forever suffer from being oily and also the treat of dry patches. As soon as I believe I’ve eradicated them for good and breathe a sigh of relief, they return from the dead for a repeat performance. So, when I discovered this new product from IT Cosmetics, I was literally beside myself with joy (yes, a little sad, maybe). It Cosmetics truly deliver on their promise – this lotion provides 72 hours of hydration. It deals with dryness and moisturises without causing an oily riot on your skin.

This almost weightless liquid is readily absorbed into the skin, taking with it a host of highly nourishing skincare ingredients that really take care of your complexion. Infused with ceramides, glycerine and cactus flower, the formula offers antioxidants, moisture-locking properties and nourishment. This liquid ensures your skin looks healthy and luminous. Perfect for the summer sun. Verdict: Impressed!

Oily skin types work better with gel moisturisers due to the fact that they are lighter and not oil-based. Kiehl’s Gel Cream intensively hydrates, moisturises and conditions the skin. Enriched with Imperata Gylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine to firmly lock in moisture. Once you apply this cream you will notice fast absorption and an immediate cooling effect.

This formula offers 4-hour hydration and effectively keeps control over shine. I love this!

If you have read any of my favourite skincare posts, you will know how much I love this brand. SkinCeuticals is at the top of its game, consistently providing optimal results. They have cleverly combined 2 incredible ingredients of which work in unison to guarantee superior hydrating and moisturising capabilities, without the fear of clogged pore syndrome. B5 nurtures your skin and hyaluronic acid provides and maintains that much-needed moisture. This product is suitable for all skin types, but if you have oily skin, skip for joy!

3.SkinCeuticals Phyto-Corrective Gel, £51.75 (30ml), amazon.co.uk

Should you suffer from acne or blemishes, this oil-free gel/serum works a treat. Particularly great for age spots, blemishes, dry skin, oily skin with dry areas and extremely sensitive skin, the formula intensively soothes and moisturises, leaving you looking and feeling nothing but beautifully radiant. And my life is complete. #Lifegoals.

Now, ladies (and gents) rejoice in the world of overnight sleep masks; the ultimate in our beauty sleep arsenal. Check out some of the best around:

Some days, it just doesn’t matter what the hell I pile on my skin, or how many layers of concealer and corrector I reach for in the day, my ‘distressed’ complexion remains as constant as Putin’s realm over Russia. The Body Shop’s Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is here to put a stop to those self-pitying, resign myself to looking crap days. Loaded with highly beneficial skin-loving and anti-aging ingredients such as edelweiss stem cells, sea holly and babassu oil, this gorgeous gel-cream gets to spend the entire night working little miracles on your skin. You will awaken to discover a more plump, rejuvenated and renewed complexion – and one less bad skin day.

Step outside into weather so cold you half expect to see a penguin on the corner, then go home and crank up the heating until you feel your face dry like a prune IRL. There’s never been a better time to buy that overnight mask –  forget the Easter eggs (well, maybe a couple); Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque is at the top of my Easter wish list. This incredible masque is all you need to reverse the nightmare that is currently UK weather.

Lancôme’s utterly luxurious mask feels like little drops of sweet heaven on your skin. Effectively dealing with and diminishing fine lines, whilst reversing the look of tired skin, this mask is a truly selfish but totally worth-it investment. There’s no denying it – here you will find the pampered blissful effects of the best night’s sleep, EVER – even if, by 3 a.m. you’re still awake and enjoying the hideous harmony of your fella’s snores.

Have you got a favourite sleep mask? Let me know below, and have a lovely Wednesday xx
