Skinesis Overnight Facial
Nice but strong scent
Nice product although I found the fragrance/smell a bit overpowering so I'm afraid I'll be looking for something else next time. It does feel nice on my skin though and absorbs quickly.

This is 'desert island' worthy!
Wow, wow, wow, wow. This serum is completely fantastic in every way, and I rarely say that about anything. I can generally find a few minor drawbacks as I'm hard to please, but this passes every single test and ticks all the boxes!
My skin: Just turned 40 but with very few lines, rosacea with a tendency to be dehydrated, definitely sensitive and will break out from certain products. By typical standards, I have really good skin. Because of that, it's hard to impress me, and it's hard to see much difference when I introduce a new product, especially after one use. But I've struggled this summer with some red patches, some small areas of mild rosacea, and a few little nasty spots that refuse to just leave, no matter how tenderly I've treated them. Rude!
I decided to try this instead of my usual nighttime face oil (I alternate between a few popular ones also purchased at SpaceNK). I was nervous because it contains some kind of retinol in addition to the oils, antioxidants, and other ingredients, and retinol has caused minor rosacea flare ups in the past. I wore it alone at night for the past 2 weeks. MIRACLE. Really.
The texture of this is also unlike any oil I have ever felt. It's got the classic oily slip, but the texture is so satiny, so soft, so...I can't even describe it, but it just feels like absolute liquid silk going on my face. I cannot get over how it feels between my fingers.
Here's what it did -- my skin was smoother and pores seemed a bit more refined. The irritation was completely calmed and the few dry patches were gone in two nights, leaving behind a plumped and youthful appearance. Over the next 2 weeks, the red rosacea patches that were always present in spite of no flare ups has significantly faded, and I even noticed some mild improvement in hyper pigmentation! When I have a minor breakout, it is less irritated and heals quickly and with no telltale mark.
I use it 3 times a week or so, to allow me to alternate with a few other active treatments that address other concerns. I adore this stuff. I am not a believer in miracle products, but for me, this is one.
Minor potential concerns for some: there is a scent, a light and clean floral/tuberose. For me, it's pleasant and doesn't linger.

Brilliant night oil
This is my third bottle of overnight facial & have tried without it when I have run out . It is like a miracle cream skin looks really good in the morning. I have just started using the morning facial & can recommend this product also.
