BEAUTY TUESDAY: Jasmine Night Conditioner by The Organic Pharmacy

I’ve made a big change to my skincare lately, as advised by The Organic Pharmacy founder Margo Marrone. I’ve always plied my face with rich night potions, but apparently I should be avoiding traditional ‘creams’ and letting my skin breathe at night.

Our skin doesn’t really require a ‘barrier’ at night, and as it’s the time that skin regenerates we should be popping off to sleep nice and early with a lighter coat of product, rather than overloading ourselves.

I’ve trialled this for around six weeks and I’m a total convert. You cleanse and tone as normal, put on your serum (The Organic Pharmacy do lovely ones but I’m working my way through Skin & Tonic’s Naked Beauty Oil, which is rich in rosehip and very gentle and simple) and then spritz this on.

I hold over my face and gently spray twice to coat my face, neck and décolletage, and then I use my trusty Body Shop Facial Massager (£8) to massage it into my skin.

(I have days where my neck can feel a bit dry and on those days I do put on some more moisturiser like Sukin’s Facial Moisturiser there as I HATE that feeling!)

Since using, I’ve noticed that my skin has more of a glow but best of all I get far fewer blocked pores and little white spots. I was a bit worried that a sudden change would lead to dry skin for a while but no, it’s just a bit less greasy and considerably more clear.

What’s in it? 

There’s jasmine, obviously, which is one of my favourite scents in the world! My neighbour has a big jasmine plant on her doorway and each evening the smell wafts into the front room, filling up my senses and happiness batteries. It’s just so warming and rich, musky and holiday-ish, as well as a great de-stressor just before bedtime. There’s rose, which is brilliant for soothing redness and swelling in the skin, and Witch Hazel, which is a fantastic toner and great for spots. There’s also oxygen, which is undoubtedly a bit of a weird ingredient to have, but it’s great for plumping the skin. Retinol glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid are amazing for hydration and tackling the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, Vitamin C, that fantastic antioxidant to help fight free radicals, as well as something I like in my skincare to help with pigmentation.

It’s very simple, refreshing and effective, and I’ve definitely changed my ways when it comes to night time rituals – just the serum and this spray from now on!

It’s £31.95 from The Organic Pharmacy

  1. […] Anyway, this let me appreciate the cream on its own, which makes a great base for make up on shoots: I’ve loved it through all the flights (four in 7 days) as my skin hasn’t dried out at all, and I used it as a day and night cream (the latter only after flying as I generally prefer to let my skin breathe at night).
