The bestselling product that makes you look like you’ve had eight hours sleep

Sleep. We all know how important it is, and most of us don’t get enough. In fact, recent research shows that on average, UK adults only get six hours and 10 minutes of sleep per night.

However, there are plenty of products on the market that can help us cheat sleep – at least when it comes to our skin. And according to those who’ve tried Elemis’ Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil, there’s one that definitely, 100 per cent does the job.

How do we know? Because a staggering 100 per cent of those who tested the treatment agreed that it made them look like they’d had eight hours sleep – late nights, glasses of wine or blue screen lights be damned.

Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil, £49, Elemis

The £49 formula offers the hydration of a moisturiser with the protection of your go-to oil, and has won plenty of five star reviews from happy customers, with one posting on the Elemis website: ‘I thought this would be just another night cream that promises a miracle in a jar but I was wrong. I can’t stress how much I really like this product.

‘As I have gotten older, I find my skin looks dull and sad all of the time. I crave that moment where you wake up and your skin is glowing. Its hard to find and have managed to find it here!’

‘The effect of a restful nights sleep in a bottle!’ another agreed. ‘Have been using this nightly for nearly 2 weeks and I am amazed. The pigmentation on my skin has greatly improved and my fine lines faded. The darkness around my eyes has lightened and I look refreshed.  I’m not one to leave reviews but has to for this product as it really is worth every penny.’
