This Works Light Time Skin Plumper


If, like us, you swear by the This Works Deep Sleep to ensure you sleep like a baby, then you probably don’t wake up that often with a puffy, lined and drawn face. On the other hand, we all occasionally have a bad night. And in some cases, according to This Works, dehydration or a particular sleeping position can impact on skin, leading to puffiness and wrinkles. (NB One side of your face is almost certainly more lined than the other, because of how you sleep…)

Joining our morning arsenal, then, is Light Time Skin Plumper, packed to the rafters with teensy ‘Hyaluronic Filling Spheres’ (literally our favourite skincare ingredient, hyaluronic acid), to plump out post-sleep creases. They go so far as to call it ‘the natural alternative to injectables’, ideal for those deep creases caused by sleeping on your front or side.

In addition, there’s a complex of actives to put back skin’s glow: Persian silk tree extract, algae, vitamin C (for pigmentation), the wonderfully nourishing crambe oil (rich in EFAs), plus shea butter and comfrey root. A touch of silver mica, meanwhile, makes for instant radiance.

And we think (like us) that you’ll fall in love with the smell: as with everything This Works has ever made, it’s divine – a soothing, grounding way to start the day, with its Deep Sleep fragrance of lavender, vetiver and chamomile.

The days may be getting shorter – but mornings definitely just got brighter.
