REVIEW: RMK Recovery Gel Intensive Night Treatment

'Recharge your skin with RMK Recovery Gel. It's 'sealing' effect allows the goodness to permeate and prepare a soft and plump canvas overnight for your next morning make-over; Recovery Gel works to recharge the skin with essential moisture while the capsules get to work on damaged skin.'

If you have read my blog since the early days you should know I love the brand RMK; I have yet to try a product and be disappointed, the Recovery Gel has been on my wish list for some time and so I had high hopes.

I am a huge fan of overnight treatments, it's effortless beautification, you go to bed with a magic elixir on and wake up looking like you've had a thousand hours of beauty sleep; the RMK Recovery Gel is no exception.

I use this when my skin is looking dull and especially after late nights; it absorbs into the skin very quickly, you do feel like something is on your face but it's more sticky than anything so don't worry about your pillowcases getting smothered in the gel.

It smells lovely and citrusy and has a lovely cooling effect on the skin; I would definitely recommend this after sun exposure and it is definitely the first thing I'll be packing for my holiday after SPF. Once you have had your full nights sleep you wake up with bright, hydrated plumped up skin. It really does work wonders on my somewhat sallow complexion.

It is definitely worth the splurge; it is like a workout for your skin whilst you sleep. Effortless results, another fantastic product from RML I would highly recommend; RMK is available from Selfridges (Link) for £49. Your skin will love you for it.

What are your favourite overnight treatments?

  • Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara (Travel Size) - This is my absolute favourite mascara of all time so one I can take on holiday is a great bonus!
  • Soigné Nail Lacquer - I have never tried this brand so It will be interesting to see how the formula is and I'll probably do a mani monday with it soon.
