Over on social media (and to quite a large degree on here too!) I'm always sounding out about how happy I am with my current skincare routine.
I have my morning practically sorted, I have my "emergency fixes" sorted, but where have I actually ever addressed how I look after my skin during sleep?
Gasp, gasp, shock, and horror, I can't hide it from you now. Truth is out. Yes, I had failed to address the quality of my skin during one of the most important times of the skin rejuvination process - sleep.
When I began to become bewildered with figuring out some vital missing steps to my current skincare routine, I knew that reaching out to Dr Chloe was the best thing to do, because straight away she is on hand to help and guide in an exceptionally friendly and personable manner.
The quality of my skin is always something I am a little shy about, especially with my bouts of adult acne in the past, however having a chance to talk to Chloe in a face to face consultation about my concerns was just what the Doctor ordered (see what I did there?), so I ventured over to meet Chloe so we could get down to some serious skin business!
Pretty much immediately, exposing my lack of night treatments resulted in the recommendation of Chloe's "Night Edition".
"A powerful, replenishing night cream renewing skin and restoring soul overnight."
"This revolutionary cream reduces appearance of fine lines, scars and sun damage by stimulating skin cell regeneration.
Deeply hydrating and packed with antioxidants to provide an anti ageing, protective moisturising barrier.
Ingredients work actively on skin overnight to wake up looking and feeling refreshed.
Luxurious to touch , the night edition will also reduce stress and anxiety , the perfect preparation for a good night’s sleep."
This is exactly the focus I need after the times of heavy medicated product acne relief, plus exposure to a fair old amount of environmental impact over the last few years of needing to roam the streets of London more and more.
At the ripe age of 32 (going on 33 this year) I'm also very aware that anti aging products are a category I should be paying more attention to these days also, so this little pot of magic truly has it all.
After only 7 nights of applying a slightly larger than pea sized amount of Night Edition before bed, I seriously wonder now why on earth I was being such a silly one to leave out such a step in my skincare routine.
Each morning my cheeks are bouncy to the touch, not in the least bit red or grumpy (unlike me if I wake up hungry), and my oil levels throughout the day now are extremely balanced! I'm almost feeling as though I may not be combination skin anymore, as I've noticed less and less of a difference between my "zones".
My mention of serums on Instagram (or lack of, in my case) caused quite a stir. I had no idea how important people expressed they were, and of course Chloe highly rated their involvement in good skincare as being top rate too, and here's what the Serum Edition can bring.
"A dream blend of luxury oils to rejuvenate , hydrate and nourish the skin with a calming effect on your soul."
"Evocative of a spa, smelling and feeling incredible, the ultimate treatment to create a radiant complexion, glowy and ultra hydrated.
A direct and concentrated route to allow the formula infused with active ingredients straight to skin improving strength and resistance.
Skin is left protected against free radical enviromental damage whilst actives work on age spots, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, combination areas and scars.
The unique blend of oils promote deep breathing and relaxation, reducing blood pressure and moving your mental state back to calmness."
I've said this before, but about oils, I have always been extremely fearful of adding any more oil based products to my skin. As someone who gets spots just by looking at anti acne treatment, I always imagined that adding more oils to my skin would just increase my risk of producing more oils, and therefore more spots.
I've been gently incorporating this guy into my night routine, before the Night Edition, every other night before bed and the results have been so fantastic. After only 3 nights my skin truly does feel more...resilient if you will! It doesn't feel as delicate, and my pores are starting to appear less dehydrated on waking.
I'll definitely keep using it at night, rather than as a start to the day, simply because I'd rather keep it as a specialist treatment so it can do its work on my bare face, rather than cover it with makeup during the day.
Chloe always has time for concerns, and her knowledge is always accessible and you never feel personally judged for any decisions you've made with skincare which perhaps aren't working for you.
These products are so precious to me in that they strictly target the health of skin, with natural ingredients, and having actual acne prone skin in mind too without that side of skincare being a low key mention.
Many products in the past have caused me so many issues with acne flare ups and irritation, and finally now I'm learning why different ingredients don't agree with me, and what ingredients my skin loves in their place.Highly perfumed counter products? Skin fail. Naturally scented products from natural oils? Love.
Honestly, I cannot rate Chloe enough for her creations and support in my skincare journey. I'm so thrilled to have her products incorporated into my daily and now nightly collection.
