Beauty | Wish Upon a Jar Night Cream


Oh hi guys... It feels like it’s been quite a while since I’ve sat down and written a proper post, when in fact it’s only been a month or so. Blogging’s always been a priority for me but lately I’ve had quite a lot going on – mainly involving taking time out and focusing on the next steps for me career wise. But I’ve also been working hard on my fitness regime/diet and trying to improve all aspects of life really! Truth be told I have missed blogging, even though I've only taken a month out. Quite a lot is going to be happening for me over the next few months and blogging may have to take a back seat, but I’m going to try and keep it up as best I can - it’s such a good outlet!

So now that we're up to date... back to the beauty! If you’re a frequent reader of Rosy Smiles you may have seen that little Boots Haul video I made. In that video I spoke about buying my first ever Soap and Glory (.. I know, I know). So this little post is about my favourite item that I picked up, the Wish Upon a Jar Night Cream.

Another shocking statement is that this jar of goodness is my first ever night cream! Because I have super oily skin I’d only ever used serums in the past but after talking to a few bloggers I bit the bullet and bought one. This little gem was on offer and comes in the usual gorgeous vintage-esque Soap and Glory packaging. The actual product comes in a beautiful mirrored sphere that will look gorgeous on any dressing table (not so gorgeous in my photos). The product is full of tetra peptides, fatty acids -the good kind, anti-oxidants and oxygen boosters that instantly brighten your skin! The cream itself is really thick and creamy meaning a little goes a long long way.  I love applying this, it’s luxurious and goes on like a dream.  I can actually feel my skin getting replenished when it’s on!

It’s safe to say that I love this product. My skin is amazingly hydrated and plump when I wake up, and this is something I used to constantly struggle with. The cream also contains an anti-aging complex but fortunately I don’t have that many wrinkles (yet!). I actually bought this product as a wrinkle preventer, and so far it is definitely doing its job!

I was skeptical of night creams up until I bought this but I can say for sure that I won’t be able to live without one anymore. It’s a total game changer in my skincare regime. Sure it’s yet another expense but with constant results it’s a small price to pay!

Do you use night cream? What are your favourites? I think I need to expand my collection! xo

    1. It's honestly amazing! I could't be without it now. Thanks for commenting :) xxx

  3. I'm so intimidated by Soap & Glory products - they are so gorgeously packaged and cutely named I'm never sure what to buy - so I usually get frazzled and have to leave the store (weirdo).
    However I do know that Night cream - if you get a good one - can definetly be a game changer!
    Sidenote: it sounds like your life is quite exciting and full of potential at the moment so I hope you keep blogging but I am also just excited for you!
