Well, let’s just say oil is a dangerous word for some. Especially when you are suggesting slathering it all over your face and letting it stay there for an extended length of time. So, when a friend suggested I try Sunday Riley: Luna Sleeping Night Oil as a replacement for my Estee’ Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, I was more than hesitant. Estee’ had been a good friend of mine for a while and I had some fierce loyalty to her but like the oversensitive bish it is, my skin changed with the weather and that serum just wasn’t cutting it anymore. Breakouts, flaking skin, redness.. You know, pretty much everything that reminds you that you’re not Kendall Jenner…you spend most days wiping unknown substances from between your toddler’s fingers.
So, after swallowing my shoppers guilt, I made the purchase. Sunday Riley, you are so. damn. expensive. Picture money boiled down into oil and poured into this tiny bottle of blue. Fortunately, it’s worth all of the moneys but also unfortunately worth all of the repurchases. A blessing and a curse.
Here are the details:
Sunday Riley: Luna comes in a 1 oz glass bottle.
The Sell: Sunday Riley: Luna Sleeping Night Oil is a “next generation” retinoid oil that boasts to reduce wrinkle and fine lines while correcting any damage to your skin including the sun and pollution. It also calms and smoothes skin, reducing redness and creating a more even skin tone.
Formulated with: cold pressed avocado, chia, cold pressed blackberry and concord grape seed oils, as well as blue tansy pure essential oil and german chamomile. DOES NOT CONTAIN: parabens, sulfates, phthalates. IT IS: cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, and hypoallergenic.
Let’s get the dislike out of the way, it’s the price, that’s it. It’s super expensive for an ounce worth of product. Luckily though, the ounce lasts a long time. I’ve had this product for a few months now, I use it every night and I’ve barely used up a quarter of it.
After cleansing, you apply three to five drops (it comes with a dropper) to your face and neck. The oil is a really dark shade of blue but you massage it into the skin and it sinks in, don’t worry, Violet Beauregard will not be staring back at you in the mirror.
My nighttime routine is sacred so I try to take my time doing every product justice, massaging it in, unless it’s past midnight. Then I just throw things on with my eyes half-shut and drag myself to bed. Anyways, this is the last step in my evening skin care routine. You just sleep on it and when you wake up, you will have the skin of gods. Any blemish or redness is reduced. It does what it says. Honestly, it’s the closest thing to a miracle product I’ve ever come across. Not to mention, beautiful. The packaging is a dream and probably the best looking thing in my bathroom cabinet. Glass bottles of vibrant blue oil -I’m into it.
So will I go poor repurchasing this? Yuhp.
Try it out, or don’t but you’ll be missing out on slathering magic on your face and waking up with Aphrodite’s skin.
