Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon – Dermalogica’s latest bedtime treatment could revolutionise your nightly routine. Sound Sleep Cocoon is a night gel-cream that harnesses the power of nature with science to promote sound sleep and healthy, radiant skin. It optimises night-time skin recovery with active ingredients that take advantage of the body’s overnight recovery and repair process to transform skin by morning, along with motion activated essential oils to promote deep, restful sleep for healthier looking skin. Natural ingredients have been selected for their abilities to rejuvenate skin and reduce signs of fatigue, including lavendin oil, encapsulated in motion-activated microcapsules that allow it to be released by massage of the product, and throughout the night as you toss and turn. Sandalwood and patchouli also calm skin and soothe the senses. Making this product even more effective, you can download Dermalogica’s new Sound Sleep Cocoon app, which features a unique musical track to produce sleep-inducing brainwaves. It also includes a video of the Sound Sleep Cocoon essential oil activation technique, tips for getting more restful sleep, and information about how scent can improve your sleep. Dreamy!
