Earlier this month, as some of you may have see on my Facebook Page (Peanut Gallery 247), and on my Instagram profile, I attended the launch of the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon™. I’m not going to talk about the event itself, as you’ve seen or can still see in those pictures I shared; they don’t lie about how stunning the launch event itself was. I think the caption in my Instagram post sums it up.
What I do want to share with you is my thoughts on this so called “Sound Sleep Cocoon™”. Quite honestly, at the start of the presentation, when this product was revealed, I was a little sceptical…thinking, “ja right, what next…a cream that can make you sleep!”. Silly me…no, it’s not a cream that makes you sleep.
Let me elaborate…that term “beauty sleep” isn’t a myth. It’s a known fact that we need sufficient sleep every night, to recover from the beating that our skin goes through each day. Have you noticed those fine lines and dull skin when you are sleep deprived for a few days? Then there are some of us who experience chronic sleep deprivation and that sadly leads to dark circles under the eyes and early aging, unfortunately so. Then you spend yours or your husbands’ hard-earned money on heaps and heaps of makeup to cover up those dark circles!
Before I got invited to this Dermalogica event, I had not used any Dermalogica products in the past. As a blogger, being invited to such events, exposes you to other products which you may have not purchased in the past. I recall listening to a group of white women talking about Dermalogica products one day…they were raving about it! Some were expressing the fact that they can’t afford it but would buy it if they could, cos it was just amaze balls! I just thought then… “oh…this must be for white people’s skin”.
Thank goodness that I went to the launch of the NEW Sound Sleep Cocoon™ by Dermalogica, as I have been using it for about three weeks now and based on that alone, I know it’s not just for white people’s skin. More importantly, I don’t believe in such things as muti but gosh, I can’t help but feel that this is like some sort of muti for the skin!
My skin has never felt this good and it also has never looked as good as it does now. Just this weekend that passed, I went out without any foundation and my sister in law, who’s opinion I trust, told me that my skin was looking good, even better than when I wear any foundation/powder. I already felt this myself but it was great to have affirmation.
So you could say that it’s expensive, depending on what you are currently using or you could consider it an investment for your skin. Think about how much you spend on the makeup you buy to cover up dark circles etc. and then do the math. Or think about the price you’ve had to pay when you used a product that didn’t’ agree to your skin.
More about my experience of the Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon™
From the moment you open the unique packaging to the time you apply it to your skin and you wake up the next morning…you do feel a positive difference. I know I said above it’s not a cream that makes you sleep – but the ingredients, which I’ll share below…smell so divine and therapeutic, like a facial at a spa…you can’t help but close your eyes and go to lala land so peacefully.
I am no beauty expert and it isn’t my aim in life to be one either. I’m just a woman, a mum and a wife who wants to look and feel confident in her skin. No matter how confident you are, if you have skin issues, they can easily break that confidence and I’ve had many such experiences. Even though it’s been only just over two weeks that I am using the Sound Sleep Cocoon™, I feel so much happier in my skin. It looks and feels brighter and smoother. So much so, that if I go out shopping during the day, I don’t even need to wear any foundation, I just put on some translucent powder and if you really must know which…I use Johnson’s baby powder and this helps with the shine on my skin.
I used to be a very light sleeper, awake with each little sound, the past three weeks or so…I’m getting more sleep than I used to. Undisturbed. All these ingredients have certainly done some magic. It’s muti I tell you!
