In the Sleeping Beauty movies, the princess always wakes up with perfect hair and perfectly-applied makeup. In the real world, that’s not always the case. Raise your hands if your morning face looks more puffy than princess-y and your hair looks more frizzy than pretty. Slightly tired of waking up looking like an angry Persian cat, we decided to do something about it. After lots of testing, we found some products that can offer a little (OK, more than a little) overnight help. After all, who doesn’t want to wake up looking amazing (and save some time in the morning?) Here are some of our favorite overnight beauty products.
Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo – Dry shampoo is the ultimate hair fix for busy girls. For even better results, apply it before you go to bed. The dry shampoo will get to work overnight and soak up any excess oils, so you wake up with gorgeous shiny locks and tons of volume.
Sachajuan Over Night Hair Repair – If you usually wake up with a little too much volume, try a hydrating and smoothing overnight treatment. This one is a water based gel that contains vitamin rich algae extracts to nourish, repair, and moisturize your hair. Even better, you don’t have to rinse it out in the morning.
Aromatherapy Associates Overnight Repair Mask – If your skin usually needs a drink of water in the morning, a moisturizing overnight mask is just what the doctor ordered. We like using this mask because it contains rose and frankincense extracts, both famous for their hydrating and repairing properties. It also contains strawberry seed extracts so your skin soaks up plumping fatty acids while you snooze.
Kerstin Florian Intensive Renewal Glycolic – Nighttime is the perfect time to give your skin a little extra boost. It’s when your skin goes into repair mode, so make the most of that time with a little peeling action. This overnight treatment contains 15% AHAs and will gently dissolve any dead, dull skin cells and reduce inflammation, so you wake up with brighter, softer, smoother skin.
Bliss High Intensity 24 Heaven Healing Body Balm – Is summer taking its toll on your skin? We like using a rich body balm right before bed, allowing it a good eight hours to soak in. This balm will hydrate, protect and gently exfoliate your skin, so you will wake up with soft, glowing limbs.
