If there’s one thing most of us wish we had more of first thing in the morning, it’s time: time to make breakfast instead of downing a doughnut, time to sleep just a few extra moments, time to style our hair instead of throwing it up in a ponytail for the millionth time that week. Lucky for us, several cosmetic companies have made it their goal to streamline our morning routine by making products that work best overnight. Take a look at some of our favorite nighttime beauty products that work while you sleep.
Mary Green Silk Satin Sleep Mask, $15
These silky sleeping eye masks might actually be the softest, most comfortable masks in the world! When it comes to sleep masks, comfort is essential, but what we love about this item is that its band isn’t too snug and so it doesn’t leave unwanted kinks in your hair. Even on wet hair, this mask helped us sleep like babies, didn’t irritate skin and let our hair dry as usual.
Clarins Vital Light Night Cream, $90
This nighttime moisturizer is very thick and hydrating, which is perfect for a formula that is expected to work for roughly eight hours. Unlike many other night time creams, this one leaves skin feeling smooth but also helps plump up unwanted lines overnight.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Creme Serum Overnight Repair Formula, $7.19
Washing, conditioning and combing our hair after a morning shower is often just about all we do to keep our hair healthy. But, for those who live in dryer climates, hair can be bone dry by the end of the day. This formula is light and easy to apply on dry hair and produces visibly soft, silky hair after every application. When using this product, try to avoid over-conditioning your hair and use only a couple times a week to avoid greasy locks.
Laura Mercier Night Nutrition Renewal Eye Crème, $45
The one thing we love about this eye cream is that it’s super absorbent and it does its job without leaving behind oily residue. Make sure your face is clean and dry before you apply it, and don’t be afraid to use a generous amount. It left our faces looking very well-rested in the morning, and it undoubtedly smoothed out lines after a week.
