Luna Sleeping Night Oil Review
I'm a huge Sunday Riley fan. Artemis is one of my all-time favourite facial oils (though I hear it's being phased out and replaced with SR's newest offering, UFO) and the Ceramic Slip cleanser is a long-term favourite product. I've been religiously testing Sunday Riley's Luna Sleeping Night Oil for a good 4 months now, and I can safely say it's going to be a night-time skincare routine fixture for me.
Luna Sleeping Night Oil is a worryingly blue, thin, nighttime retinol(vitamin A) based skin treatment. It's lightweight, and the blue colour does dissipate as soon as the oil is massaged in to the skin. No blue pillows here.
The two big guns in this little bottle are the vitamin A component, and blue tansy. Luna contains a retinol ester rather than the more irritating retinoic acid. Blue tansy acts as an anti-inflammatory - welcome in a potentially irritating product.
Why would you chuck a load of vitamin A on your face, I hear you cry? Have a read at the immortal Caroline Hirons' cheat sheet. She'll fill you in. Listen to her. She's a genius. Vitamin A and many of its analogues are basically the ultimate anti-ageing ingredient.
I use this product 2-3 times a week, and have noticed a geniune, palpable difference in my skin - less spots, quicker fading of discolouration and spot scars, and a generally bright, well-looking complexion. You really do only need two or three drops of this oil per night, so the bottle will last for ages - I have over two-thirds left after 4 months' solid use. As with any retinol product - make sure you're using a good SPF during the day after using this the night before.
It's pricey. I hate the dropper. And the blue is a bit unnecessary. But I'll be finishing this bottle and loving doing so.
