THE IN-TRAY

These overnight beauty products are what dreams are made of

This month at MECCA we’re inviting you to connect with beauty in deeper more meaningful ways with events and activities to nourish, guide and inspire. Tune into our Sleep Soundly Facebook Live at 8pm on Wednesday April 28 to learn ho w to get a better night’s sleep for your body, mind, memory, and creativity with the experts from This Works, and for more night time skincare tips from our skincare specialists.

It’s not that we’re lazy, but boy do we do love being horizontal—especially when beauty products are involved. There’s something about a good mask that lulls us into a calm, meditative state (seriously, as if you haven’t fallen asleep in a facial before). But if there’s one thing better than masking while watching TV, it’s combining actual real-life sleep and beauty products, just like these seven overnight products. They do all the hard work, and you just get do the sleep part, waking up to glowing skin and shiny hair. Magic. Never before has sleeping on the job ever looked—or felt—so good.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

This hair treatment is genius for a couple reasons: first, because who really ever leaves a hair mask or treatment on for 15 minutes in the shower? No one, that’s who. So it sorts that problem out. And secondly, because it promises shine and vibrancy that lasts for days, making it the ultimate product for every time-poor human. Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector is especially great for coloured and dull hair because it seals the cuticle, protects against environmental stress, and has a bunch of amino acids to help make hair healthier and stronger.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask

If you’re not yet acquainted with Glow Recipe, you’re missing out. Founded in the US but K-beauty inspired, all of their formulations feature fruit and are designed for optimum glow. The Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask is the original cult product from the range. The glow happens overnight thanks to watermelon and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, fight free radical damage and plump the skin, while AHAs gently exfoliate the skin, softening lines and bringing clarity and smoothness.

Omorovicza Midnight Radiance Mask

If your skin needs a glow-up—and fast—this is your guy. Omorovicza’s Midnight Radiance Mask uses salicylic acid to gently exfoliate and enhance cell renewal alongside red algae for moisture, sand lily as a melanin inhibitor (to help block pigmentation production) and copper to help regulate the skin’s oil flow. Ideal for those prone to a few breakouts, or skin that’s just generally looking a bit dull and blah, consider it your personal pep up in a cooling gel formulation.

Shiseido Waso Beauty Sleeping Mask

Last night’s four-too-many cocktails have got nothing on Shiseido’s Waso Beauty Sleeping Mask which brings all the hydration (and life) back to the face party. Its key ingredient is yuzu, a powerhouse Japanese citrus that contains all the good stuff: vitamins A and C for antioxidant protection and brightness, and vitamin E for high powered hydration. Plus, phytoplankton (fancy name for marine algae) helps to cool and plump the skin so it will look healthy and rested even if you don’t feel it.

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Ask any skincare expert and they’ll give it to you straight: retinol is the gold standard in anti-ageing ingredients. While some strains, if not adjusted to the skin, can be irritating, that’s not the case when it comes to Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. This clever overnight oil combines retinol with blue tansy, a type of chamomile that is both calming and an antioxidant, which helps with skin repair. So you get all the benefits of retinol (reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines, promoting cell renewal), without the irritation.

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial

This mask has a firm goal: hydration, hydration, hydration – and it knows exactly how to get it. Featuring a cocktail of antioxidants and omega fatty acids, with vitamin B3 (niacinamide) to strengthen the skin and repair barrier function and ceramides for their calming, soothing abilities, Drunk Elephant’s F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial is like a tall drink of water for your skin, but, you know, with actual skin benefits. If this isn’t already in your winter kit, it should be.

Skyn ICELAND Blemish Dots

Ideal for when you’re feeling the first twinge of a spot (naturally, always just before a wedding/date/any significant event), Skyn ICELAND’s Blemish Dots deliver on blemish-clearing powers overnight so that by morning the spot is nowhere near as angry (read: red) as it could be. With salicylic acid to treat and tea tree for its anti-bacterial properties, they adhere to the skin for a concentrated treatment. Give the spot an extra zap by adding a treatment gel underneath if you’re dealing with a particularly angry one.
