• Dermalogica | Sound Sleep Cocoon

    There are two things I really love - sleep and skin care. So when a brand develops a products that emphasises the importance of sleep in your skin care routine they have my attention.  Dermalogica has launched a Sound Sleep Cocoon gel-cream designed to work with the skin's natural overnight repair and recovery process to give you glowing skin by the morning.

    Sadly when the press event was held I was quite sick and couldn't be there to learn more about the product in person, but I was kindly sent a product to test out for myself.

    Now as with all skin care, in order to really see the benefits you need to follow a proper skin care routine and be consistent with your treatments. The very first thing I noticed when apply the gel to my skin was the fragrance.  The most noticeable to me is the Lavender oil which is known to promote restful sleep. It is a subtle fragrance the isn't noticeable once absorbed into the skin. I wash my face right before I go to bed and once I am in bed I apply one pump of the gel to my face and another pump to cover my the front and back of my neck as well as my décolletage area.

    The gel is very light weight and absorbs into the skin effortlessly. At first I was concerned that the light weight formula wouldn't be enough to hydrate my dry skin but to my surprise it has worked like a charm.

    As already mentioned, the product is formulated to work with your skin's natural overnight repair and recovery processes. The skin is best able to absorb active ingredients at night and this is what makes the Sound Sleep Cocoon so effective. The ingredients include:
    1. Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract (Persian Silk Tree) reduces signs of skin fatigue and restores vitality.
    2. Evodia Rutaecarpa Fruit Extract (Fruits of Wu-Zhu in traditional Chinese medicine) provides visibly radiant skin by morning and promotes a more refined skin texture.
    3. Kakadu Plum Extract, rich in antioxidant Vitamin C, is clinically shown to improve and brighten skin tone.
    4. Tamarindus Indicia (Tamarind Seed Extract) is a polysaccharide that cushions skin, creating a nourishing cocoon of comfort for softer, more hydrated skin.
    5. Encapsulated essential oil with motion-activated technology encapsulated, motion-activated French Lavender oil, along with calming Sandalwood and Patchouli, soothe the senses with aromatherapy to help promote deep, restful sleep for healthier-looking skin
    I have been using this gel every night for over a month now and the key thing I have noticed is an improvement in the texture of my skin. My skin looks smoother, more even and definitely overall just far more healthy.

    The price of the Sound Sleep Cocoon is R1 295 and is currently available at all Dermalogica concept stores and stockists across the country.
